#WednesdayWishlist

When it comes to gaming I tend to be fairly up to date with the new releases, buying the games I want on their release dates. However this isn’t the case for me with box sets. I don’t have Netflix or an account with any other video streaming company (having a capped internet usage prevents it from being a viable option) and a full price box set can be fairly pricey, so instead I tend to wait patiently for the next season of a series I want to watch arrive in CEX. I know, games cost a lot more than  box sets, but new gen games tend to hold their value for a lot longer than a box set, and like my internet my patience is limited. I can always watch TV if I feel like watching a program where as there isn’t an equivalent option like this when it comes to gaming. So  this week on my #WednesdayWishlist are box sets for the next seasons of series I have enjoyed and am waiting to arrive in my local CEX!

Never go back (…to games of your childhood)

I’m sure we have all harped back to those days when we were younger; when the grass was greener; when the air was fresher; when you could buy two pints of beer for less than a fiver (damn I miss that); and when video games seemed so much more important; more impressive.  It was as if the games had one cheeky hand on your bottom whilst dancing with your imagination; your very being… but these are lies, my friends.  Do not let your rose-tinted glasses fool you…

#WednesdayWishlist

I apologise. I had planned to go into a lot more detail in this #WednesdayWishlist however my evening got side-tracked by a Vanilla Hardshake. ‘What is this Vanilla Hardshake?’ I hear you ask. It’s a sublime combination of some of my favourite ingredients. Take a shot of bourbon, add to a vanilla ice-cream milkshake and sweeten with maple syrup and you get a kids drinks suitable for adults only! Thank you BBQ’s & Brews for making the introduction.

EGX 2015 Games I want to play

Now back to the matter at hand; this week’s wishlist. September is getting closer, bringing with it an exciting event in many UK gamers’ calendar…EGX. Having bought my ticket as soon as they became available, I thought that this week’s #WednesdayWishlist should be about the top 3 games that I’m most excited about getting a chance to play whilst I’m there…

#WednesdayWishlist – Whisky

Wednesday WishList whiskey

So far my posts have focused mostly on gaming and a small amount on box sets. I have not mentioned anything regarding drinking, a topic I had planned to talk about as it is something which I enjoy … a lot. When I finally polished off the remains of my Christmas whisky last week (a bottle of Jura Origin, a light and delicate 10 year old single malt scotch whisky and a firm favourite of mine) I decided that this week my #WednesdayWishlist would be about the whiskys I would love to replace that empty bottle of Jura.
