As you know guest hosts are rare, so having two in one week is nearly unheard of. However in this case they are Kinda a package deal.

This week see’s the long overdue return of the our old friend Craig, who brought along his young son Noah.

It was good to have both of them here, even if I was very bad at curbing my tendency to swear in front of the little one (thank god he is too young to understand what I was saying).

In between the ammusement cause by the little one we managed to find time to talk about everything from the announcements regarding EA & the Star Wars Franchise, More complaining about the Wii U & even some general MMO talk as WoW loses even more subscribers.

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

Congratulations Craig on your wedding day, all the best for you and Emma for the future

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #112: Congratulations TurkeySaladBoy & TurkeySaladGirl

Congratulations Craig on your wedding day, all the best for you and Emma for the future
Congratulations Craig on your wedding day, all the best for you and Emma for the future

This episode of the Podcast is dedicated to Craig (aka TurkeySaladBoy) & Emma who, by the time you are reading this, will have tied the knot.

Everyone involved with 8bitalliance wishes them every happiness in their future together, you two deserve each other.

As a result of the pending more important event today this weeks podcast is a little shorter than previous recordings – I deliberately imposed a time-limit, more to stop me drinking as much as usual than the amount we talk.

However as you will hear we still managed to get quite a lot of stories covered. From the Closure of LucasArts and layoffs at Dark Moon Studio to the fact the EA’s idea of Freemium is wrong and the fact that Blizzard now seem to be fixated E-Sports.

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

"And how would you like the steak..?"

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #82: How to lose the plot and confuse listeners

"And how would you like the steak..?"
“And how would you like the steak..?”

If we have any listener’s after this episode I will be very very surprised – over the last few weeks the real world has been doing a lot of getting in the way.

Gow is currently homeless due to a less than useless builder destroying his kitchen & I have just started a new role at work that has me travelling a lot. We are not going to let those problems stop us recording episodes though.

Helping raise the confusion level was a sleep deprived TurkeySaladBoy fresh off the boat from Gamescom, while it was good to have him back in the show he is even harder to keep on topic than Gow is. That is something i did not think was possible.

However somehow we managed to get some of the weeks gaming news out there, from the Blizzard servers being hacked to the TERA lawsuit being settled. We even managed fit in some talk about Borderlands 2 Girlfriend mode and even had time to play fanboy again for Playstation Plus.

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