The Drinky Talky Thing Podcast, Episode #7

I've taken so many of these now I'm starting to rattle

Well here we are again – another Podcast where we have to apologise for the delay.

Despite the fact that we all live so close together, finding those moments where all of our schedules have a gap has proved difficult.

As if to prove that fact, this Podcast is missing Craig Albeck is missing, being that he was on his way back from a micro-payment convention in London.

What you will also notice is different in this episode is that I am considerably more drunk than normal. This is a result of the fact that I have been on painkillers for back problems, and this is the first time in 2 weeks I have had anything to drink.

On that note I’ll let you listen to Me & Gow, Try and stay on topic.

As a bit of a warning as this was another catchup episode, it is once again over 2hrs long, but this time it seems like it would be better not to split it.

Play

Oh and if you make it through the whole two hours and happen to be ginger, I apologise in advance 🙂

EA buys Chillingo

for apparently $20million EA have bought Chillingo, publishers of angry birds http://kotaku.com/5668910/angry-birds-is-now-from-the-makers-of-madden – however in a nice twist they do not get Angry Birds. It seems that its massive success have led to a situation where Rovio (the developers) no longer need the publisher and the deal only included the first iPhone version.
