Weblog: Talking Bad companion broadcast
It’s a week of goodbyes, it seems.
Breaking Bad ends with a blistering finale but, don’t worry, no spoilers here. Instead, I direct you to the Talking Bad podcast
hosted by comedian and podcast veteran Chris
There’s a video version too but it can only be accessed from the US.
Anyway, this show dissects and discusses, episode by episode, the Breaking Bad plot and characters and is a good choice if you’re afraid to go cold turkey.
Obox One goes on tour
Beginning this week, the Xbox One’s Area One global tour kicks off. Ahead of the November 22nd release date for the next gen gaming console, this gives punters a chance to try before buying by playing new titles including Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3 and Minecraft.
Dublin is one of the 75 cities included in the tour so stick November 14th-17th in your diary.
It’s free to attend but space is limited and on a first come, first served basis.
Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer had the time of his life
Not content with just accepting the gold watch and commemorative plaque, Steve Ballmer leaves his role as CEO of Microsoft with an emotional speech that is difficult to watch. He circles the stage à la Dr Phil, crying, shaking his head, crying some more and shouting about his feelings. It ends with him running around the stage high-fiving bystanders to the Dirty Dancing tune I’ve Had The Time Of My Life. Scarleh for ye, Steve Ballmer.
