St George's Glory (Batemans)

St George's Glory (Batemans)
Name: St George's Glory
Label: "What legends are made of"
Brewery: Batemans
ABV: 4.1%

Rating: "A blond English ale full of succulent English hops and malt.  Put some fire in your belly. It would be unpatriotic to drink anything else. Goes well with Dragon Steaks." I didn't have any Dragon steak so I had Unicorn rump instead. The beer is magical.

Game: Today is a bit like the morning after the night before. I woke up thinking, "Ar yeah, can't wait to play Batman tonight!", then the realisation slowly dawned on me through the sleepy beery stupor that I'd finished it last night. I'm pretty sure I did most of the side-missions too so it seems quite a short game. However I have played it every night for at least two hours since last Thursday... and all day Friday. I say all day Friday but it was probably equivalent to a working day interspersed with what every male does when they're alone at home: folding clothes, hoovering and stacking the dishwasher. So, although it seems a lot, I've probably put about eighteen hours in and with only 40% of the entire game completed according to the stats screen, there's still plenty to be done such as Riddler trophy collection, side-missions and combat rooms. So it's looking like very good value for money if you've yet to get your wallet out.

(kicks tin can....) Why can't good things last for like.....ages, any mention of Download content? new missions, eternity in a mask and cape?

I'll put on the Dragon Steaks...
Rare medium or well done?

Celebratory Dragon Steaks all round! Rare for me please, you can't beat the flavour.

This evening a retweet of your last blog post got listed on some xbox site, but with my twitter account and not yours, which is a bit off putting to say the least! I retweeted the menion so you can check it out yourself.

(looks at spare dragon steaks...)

don't feel I deserve one now!

I was completely befuddled by what you meant there for a minute lol. ..who retweeted what? where? eh? Head hurts...

But then I realised... was it that xbox games daily thing? I think its a bot site or something. Theres a suspiciously similar Real Ale one of it too which my posts sometimes find their way onto. It looks quite good though tbh, and if your Twitter name is on there then everyone's a winner! :D

Thanks for the retweet, more steaks all round!.. hang on... I think I've ate too much steak :(
