Maximus (Double Maxim)
Label: "National Award Winner - Strong Premium Ale"
Brewery: Double Maxim Beer Company Ltd
Rating: A strong warming beer that is also smooth and easy drink
Game: As previously posted, starting to clear the game decks in preparation for the arrival of Alan Wake in May. Completed HAWX on Normal difficulty (Normal strangely being the easiest setting in the list of difficulties). This is definitely the best of its kind on the Xbox 360 at the moment, ridiculous storyline but solid gameplay and a good variety of missions. The storyline in a nutshell (spoiler): you used to work for the US Government but now work for Artemis, a mercenary outfit. You do some contracts for the US, Artemis and US fall out, you rejoin with the US, Artemis takes over US and threatens nuclear holocaust, you save the world from the comfort of your cockpit. 8 / 10.
