Up And Under Ale (Shepherd Neame)
Label: "What a BOOTiful Ale - Master Brewer's Choice"
Brewery: Shepherd Neame
Rating: "Deeply coloured, rich and full bodied, this sporty ale has been brewed with a ruck of the finest roasted malts and a triple crown of the choicest hops resulting in a grand slam of a beer you will want to tackle. Try a fly half to ensure conversion." I might be mistaken but I think there's a rugby theme going on with this beer... I'm more of a football fan myself but the ale is top notch.
Game: It's official, Dead Space 3 is (still) amazing. A quick word on micro-transactions... you can spend real money / Microsoft points in-game to buy crafting materials and weapons. I'm not against micro-transactions per se, if the game is free. Having paid the best part of £40 for the game though, I'm totally against it in this case. Similar with DLC in general, it should be included with a full price retail game in my opinion. So until the games are free they can stick their micro-transactions up their micro-arseholes. Luckily I'm progressing through the game quite nicely, without the slightest feeling of being hamstrung by my unwillingness to fork out extra cash for content. Still giving it 9/10.
