Full Circle

So, I started playing Skyrim again after about 8 months. It's nice that you can easily start up right where you left off without much difficulty. The game still looks great even though it's a couple of years old and the game play is awesome. In circa 1979, I started playing a similar game called Adventure. Developed for the Atari 2600, and very 8bit, was unlike any game I had played before. At the time the graphics looked phenomenal and I felt the same as I do now looking at Skyrim. It really comes full circle, going back to my childhood to haunt me in a completely good way. If you haven't played Skyrim yet, you need to. Also if you find a way to play Adventure check it out, it will make you laugh at the simplicity of game play and graphics.

When I was 17 I had my first Guinness and a whole new world opened up for me in the world of brew. That Guinness was so dark and rich, yet milky and smooth, I couldn't get enough. Life had changed, and yes, I became a man. 24 years later, actually yesterday, I partook in a Finch's Secret Stache Stout. Wow, It took me back to my first Guinness. Pitch black, though classified as an American stout, has a rich sweet taste of a sweet stout. Coffee and chocolate notes with a slight sweet from the vanilla, puts this stout at the top of my list for now. definitely a flashback to my youth. I highly recommend trying this brew. If you like stouts this will rate high on your list and Guinness is still one of the best Irish stouts.


 Play games, drink beer, and play more games. Life's simple pleasures.
