Pride of Pendle (Moorhouse)

Pride of Pendle (Moorhouse)
Name: Pride of Pendle
Label: "Brewers since 1865"
Brewery: Moorhouse
ABV: 4.1%

Rating: "The balance of malt and hops create a long dry satisfying taste." The force is strong with this ale.

Game: I was determined not to, but I finally capitulated and bought the Kinect Star Wars 360 bundle (from the new "home of gaming" Tesco, no less).  Being a total Star Wars fanboy I completely agree with this C & VG review of the game. The prequels didn't have the same impact on you as the original trilogy did because you're not six anymore. You're old, get over it. The same hatred of the prequels seems to spill over onto anything new that's Star Wars related and this game appears to be no exception. I like it though, but admittedly I don't like seeing Yoda on those Vodafone ads. Yet I don't mind seeing Stormtroopers dancing in Jabba's Palace. Hm, maybe I need to go home and rethink my life. Out of 10, 7.5, this game gets.

Yoda and Vodafone are a travesty!!

As for the Star Wars game franchise, the closest I've got to being tempted was the Lego versions...

Course I still haven't recovered from seeing Hans Solo entombed in carbon.... :(

Yeah the Lego games were ok, but got a bit samey. Think Force Unleashed is probably the best of the current-gen Star Wars games. For me though, nothing has ever topped X-Wing on PC. Best. Game. Ever (that's Star Wars related).
