Samuel Adams Summer Ale

This seasonal brew is a nice wheat ale brewed with lemon peels. It is truly refreshing on a hot summers day. The lemon does not over power the drink but adds a nice slight citrus taste. This is also not a heavy beer, like the original Samuel Adams, nor is it a light beer (like a Corona) but I think it is a marriage of the two.

How it was tasted: Out of the bottle.

Rating: 8/10
1-2= Disgusting
3-4= Not worth the calories
5-6= Average
7-8= Good
9-10= One of my favorite beers

Limbo - indie game

Limbo is one of the most interesting games I have played in a while. I heard about it when it came out on Xbox Arcade and everyone thought it was good. So when it came out on PC a few days ago I thought I would give it a shot.

The whole game has a film noir aspect to it as you can see by the photo. There are many enemies the boy encounters while having to solve puzzles in order to proceed through the game. The mechanics are simple since you can either move,  jump or grab an object. This means anyone can pick up this title without worrying about getting owned or more appropriately |o\/\/|\|3|). The whole story is purposely vague in order for the reader to interpret what is happening. All we are given is "Uncertain of his sister's fate, a boy enters LIMBO". I think this adds more to the game though if I am correct the story does seem appealing either way.

My only complaint is that this game is pretty short. You could probably finish it in a few hours depending on if you get stuck or not. Even with this gripe I will go ahead and bump it up to a 9.

How it was tasted: played on a PC through steam.
