Playing video games for the graphics is like watching porn for the story

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #99: Already getting sick of christmas!

Playing video games for the graphics is like watching porn for the story
Does anything more need to be said?

Last week I said that Gow would be alone for this weeks recording, well my back decided to make a liar of me.

I managed to put my back out in the early part of the week, but that is not why you are here is it?

Your here for the weeks gaming news, which includes the sad news on the death of the GamesMaster Sir Patrick Moore, a rundown on the end of year awards, laughed at some Germans & called Michael Patcher an arsehole.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
