Late Weekly Roundup for 21 Dec 2014

This one’s a little late and a little light as it’s the holidays and my social calendar is filling up, however I’ve got a couple of things to mention.

Innes & Gunn Rare Oak Pale Ale: I was finally able to try this and I really like it. It’s not hoppy, which I usually like, but it’s got plenty of character with a hint of flavour I took for bourbon, even though the barrels in which it is aged are not whisky barrels. While a strong beer, this is by no means as strong as Innes & Gunn’s usual offerings. I’m a fan, though Rum Finish remains my favourite.

Rage: This is my new computer game addiction. I got through Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, and this is another post-apocalyptic shooter that was on sale on Steam. It is kind of like Borderlands meets Call of Duty in Fallout‘s post-apocalyptic world. It’s on rails, like Call of Duty, with fast past shooting like Borderlands. It’s got the shattered Earth of Fallout, except Rage‘s setting has hi-tech buried beneath the waste. The setting is not as inspiring as Fallout or Metro 2033, and it’s not as fun or open as Borderlands, but it’s got me hooked.
