Boilermaker from Brains Craft Brewery! 6.5% Boilermaker is a copper-coloured IPA brewed with Ben and Tom from Thinking Drinkers. Brewed with Chinook, Simcoe, Cascade and Willamette hops and matured with Penderyn whisky infu...

Re: Better gamer now you're older?

I don't have the patience anymore. I got through about 3/4 bosses on Megaman 2 when I was a kid, now I can't get to the first boss before turning off the Wii.

Yes it is. Most are sealed, but my box wasn't mint - few scuffs and dents.

Re: The XBOX ONE / PS4 discussion thread

One thing that I really admire with Sony is that the Playstation Plus offered something right from the beginning, and is still applicable across PS3/Vita/PS4.

Does Games for Gold cross-over on Xbone/360?

Re: Playstation Plus

Got my teeth into Borderlands 2, only to hear that Bioshock Infinite is *rumoured* to be released in February! It's going to be a very cheap year!

Is there any point in buying games on PS3? Besides for collecting purposes :wink:

Re: Dead Rising 3

Absolutely agreed. DR3 does the whole zombie horde thing really, really well and I'm not even that far into the game. I find myself ignoring whatever I'm supposed to be doing and just jumping head first into crouds and smacking them in the face with whatever is to hand (and as its a DR game, there'...

Re: Overboard! (PS1)

Lovely little game. Haven't played it for years, although i do still have a copy upstairs. Its one of the few PS1 games to survive my cull a few years back, when i went from 200 games to 10. That's testament to how much i enjoyed it. I will have to dig it out and give it a whirl again. :D One of ou...

Re: List of Jackie Chans injuries.

His autobiography was excellent, you see him in a completely different light. His early years are a definite insight.

Re: Packing is tiring!

Worst part for me was packing everything up neatly, and then finding the chain had broken down. :x

I've pretty much unpacked all my stuff, only to find I could well be in with another house soon.

Re: is the psp percieved to be a failure

I believe the PSP was great.Sony saw the opportunity to enter the handheld market and went there. I personally think it's healthy to have two competing companies on the handheld market. As for a complete failure? I don't think so, there are plenty of great games. Plus it allowed the opportunity to p...

ShopTo are showing that they have Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D in stock: http://shopto.net/3ds/3DSRO00-rollercoaster-tycoon I genuinely had no idea that this game existed. Did it just creep out, or what? It certainly exists, held it in my hands earlier this week ;) How does it play? Looks good! Miss pla...
