It sure has been a long time since we’ve posted anything on here, huh? Life has been busy for us and I hate to admit it, but we’ve let this page fall to the wayside. In the coming weeks and months, Heather and I hope to change that.
In addition to new updates on our [...]
“You’ve got a screwdriver! Go build a cabinet!” River Song, The Day of the Moon
Ah, the Sonic Screwdriver. It’s different than a regular screwdriver because, well, it’s sonic, you see? This trusty tool of the Doctor has appeared in many forms over the year and has evolved from a simple screwdriver that worked via [...]
In the not-so-distant future, an inter-dimensional portal opens at the bottom of the Pacific ocean. From this portal, giant amphibious monsters dubbed kaiju (Japanese for ‘strange creature’) emerge and begin an assault on mankind. Standard weapons soon prove ineffective against the beasts, so giant robots called Jaegers (German for ‘hunter’) are created to fight the [...]
According to Wikipedia, mead (technically melomel) made with cherry juice is called Viking Blood, so we figured this would be a fitting post for the True Blood premiere. Viking vampires and whatnot. Plus, we bottled it a bit late for the Red Wedding. While not a part of one of our series, this mead was [...]
“Planning has never been my strong suit. Now, killing…killing and love-making. Killing and love-making and witty retorts. Those I am better at.” Zevran Ariani, Dragon Age: Origins
Zevran is an interesting character. When you first meet him, he is trying to kill you. If you defeat him and choose not to kill him immediately, he’ll [...]
Our Meads of Tamriel series continues with High Rock, the province of the Bretons in the Northwest of Tamriel, just west of Skyrim. High Rock is very similar to medieval Britain, and was the partial focus of Daggerfall, the second Elder Scrolls game. Since cider was widely consumed in medieval Britain and continues to be [...]
When we were in undergrad, Rich used to tell me about how he wanted to have a bar with video game themed cocktails that he would call the Life Bar. One of his planned cocktails for this bar was the Mariotini, a martini with a mushroom for garnish instead of an olive. This makes it [...]
For the final drink in our Bioshock Infinite cocktail series (at least until DLC comes out), we have Charge. For a while, we tried to figure out a combination of ingredients that fit the vigor as it is portrayed in-game (a charging ram), but we realized that there really wasn’t one. However, Booker’s time in [...]
“What? Lead? Me? No, no, no. No leading. Bad things happen when I lead. We get lost, people die, and the next thing you know I’m stranded somewhere without any pants.” Alistair, Dragon Age: Origins
Alistair is the first permanent party member (besides the Mabari war hound from from the human noble origin) that the [...]
For the penultimate beverage in our series of Bioshock Infinite cocktails, we have Shock Jockey. Who doesn’t love electrocuting their foes to death? The animation for this shows Booker tossing electrified crystals at enemies, but functionally it’s pretty much the same as Electro Bolt from the original Bioshock.
We knew pretty early on that this [...]
