Red (Lancaster)

Red (Lancaster)
Name: Red
Label: "Superb premium ruby ale. Robust malt with a splendid bitter note."
Brewery: Lancaster
ABV: 4.9%

Rating: "A premium strength, Ruby ale. Robust and malt-dominated, fired by a spicy but sweet fragrance. Red is an impact beer designed to leave lasting impressions both visually and on the taste buds." The last beer in the Lancaster collection judging by the shop shelves, Red, Blonde, Amber and Black. A veritable beer flavoured rainbow. Not a very colourful rainbow granted, but a tasty rainbow nonetheless.

Game: I wasn't going to get Max Payne 3, but then I remembered that it's a Rockstar game. And Rockstar games rock. So cutting to the chase, the bullet-time effect is copiously bloody, brutal and brilliant. I can't remember a game where you can shoot someone in slo-mo and then continue to empty a clip into their body and/or face before they hit the floor. Maybe Max Payne 2? I don't know, like I say, I can't remember. So far it's guns, blood and action with a healthy dose of alcoholism. This game is definitely not for the faint of heart, or Daily Mail readers.

Thanks for the retweet!

Hm, my pile of unfinished games is steadily increasing too...

I reckon some games I was going to get will now not be got because of said pile. And also DLC due out for Batman and Skyrim. Need a full week to finish some of these games off.

(... goes off to check remaining annual leave allowance.... )
