Rye Wit

So, those lovely, lovely gentlemen at Basic Brewing Radio┬árecently produced a recipe for a session Witbier called Rye Wit. It’s basically a low alcohol and low calorie Witbier comprised of 75% wheat malt and 25% rye malt, with the majority of the hop flavour and aroma coming from a late addition of citra. It sounded […]

The List of Shame

It’s woefully out of date. I have actually played some things, but I’ve also been evil and added (many) more. I’m going to sit down tonight and update it, then dress in sackcloth and ashes for a month and actually stick to it. 2015 was insane for gaming.

Robinwood Best Bitter (clone)

So, I’ve finally tracked down what appears to be a fairly accurate reproduction of one of my all-time favourite beers. It was a plain ol’ Best Bitter made by a brewery called Robinwood Brewery. They operated for a fairly brief amount of time, between 1988 and 1994, but produced what I believe is the best […]

Fallout 4

Readers of this blog will most likely be aware that this came out ­čÖé It’s pretty much the only thing I’ve been playing of late, on account of it being fecking great. There’s been a bit of mud slinging about it (mainly from Kotaku), so I thought I’d mention a few of the gripes along […]

State of the Synth

  Updated 19/11/15, on account of these things having a habit of… growing. So, ModularGrid.net is a handy site. It allows you to populate standard sized cabinets with modules you own or are planning to buy. This is as handy as a handy thing for a number of reasons – mainly because it’ll let you […]

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

So, I have a tradition of creating a female character called “Bague” in Monster Hunter. I’ve been doing it since the PS2 days. I need to stop it. I’ve just spent a LONG TIME farming Pink Rathians to make the Rath Heart armour set. And I look like a cupcake.

Sneakaliscious Chilli Con Carne

Nothing complicated here – no weird and wonderful chillies that you need to travel 50 miles to buy. All off the shelf stuff, but tastes amazing and gets better after a couple of days. If you decide to make a huuuuuuuge pot of it, either portion it and freeze it or heat the whole pot […]

Now Playing

There’s a now playing page. Up there, in the middle of the top navigation thingy. Gonna keep that up to date with what I’m doing, methinks.

Too many games!

It’s getting ridiculous. It really is. After my prolonged ennui – in part caused by a lack of anything new and interesting and in part by my ridiculous Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate obsession – I’ve found myself up to my eyes in amazing titles. Admittedly, this is at least partly down to the magnificence of […]

2014 in review

Well, it’s that time of the year, folks. That time where I blab on endlessly about my favourite stuff that I discovered in 2014. As ever, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s stuff that was actually┬áreleased┬áin 2014, just that that is when I┬ádiscovered it. Though obviously some if it actually is new. First, though, the year […]
