Lots of interesting Prometheus “stuff” this week! Firstly Ridley Scott has apparently stated that the link between Alien and Prometheus is minor.
The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland [who] is played by Guy Pearce. That’s the connection between the two films, and nothing more. ‘Prometheus’ is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course, new monsters as well. – Source
As fans will know, Weyland-Yutani is the name of the big bad company that seems to run pretty much everything in the Alien films. Peter Weyland, we can assume, is one half of that corporations founders.…
The big two-oh! And lots in this weeks episode to celebrate! Or possibly just because there was a lot of news this week. We discuss such exciting topics as:

GAME OF THRONES SEASON 2 TRAILER IS HERE.
For those of you who have yet to jump on the bandwagon, Game Of Thrones is what Lord Of The Rings would be if you took out the homoerotica and the over the top camera work. And I, for one, am excited for it’s return. Watch the Season 2 trailer here. You’re welcome.
As we’ve discussed on the podcast before, adventure games kind of dropped off the map for a long time and are now almost a speciality commodity. Tim Scafer and Ron Gilbert are well aware of this, and they have make a video interview where they discuss exactly this, as well as what they think makes a great adventure games, their favourite game moments, and a whole load of other fascinating topics.
We’re late this week, and I humbly apologise for it! But rest assured things will return to normal next week! So if you look on the bright side, you don’t have to wait as long for the next episode now!
I’m going to add in the show notes later because I want to get the episode up ASAP.

After recording our Podcast this week, we decided to celebrate with a few drinks. After a few too many, things got a little out of hand. And by the next morning, things were down right awkward.
