Would you like some more cheese with that whine? Ah, I love using that tired expression, but to be honest, I could happily go for more of both in my life. Okay, one isn’t allowed at the moment, but man my love of cheese runs deep and will pretty much always make me stop whining.

In Other News: Gran Turismo is totally something different, Ancel probably won’t ever have time to make me happy by making Beyond Good and Evil 2, and sex in games isn’t just about inserting gifts until sex comes out anymore.

Here’s the news we didn’t post today because we were too busy booking reservations at that cafe in Dublin.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Ek verkies brande met my wyn.

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          • Captain JJ the Goo

          • DragonSpirit009

            Well now my walk out of work is going to have an extra move in it!

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            😀

          • DragonSpirit009

            I think it might be charcoal then

          • Hammersteyn

            Good, we’ll use the charcoal too braai proper steaks

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            ^This

          • The frik you still doing at work after 4?

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            FOKKEN Exchange server got in the sea

          • Well that sucks

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Screw it, I’m going home, will work from there. Might need some perspective first

          • Brady miaau

            Good luck……

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        You say that, but you’re forgetting about a nice flambeed steak. WHO’S CLEVER NOW?!

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          Oh wow. Is this a trick question?

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          Flambeed is one thing, UNHOLY FIREDEATH is another

          • Hammersteyn

            Tossed into the sun

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I used the holy spirit.

          • Hammersteyn

            You used Scorched Earth

          • Dutch Matrix

            Oy! Don’t make me punch you in the dick! Blasphemer!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Maybe that’s the plan sailor!

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            If you chant something while you do it, can it be holy firedeath?

          • Hammersteyn

            When Alien Emperor Trevor has a braai

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        You cannot give man sized things to him

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Nou praat jy. Man-sized & convenient.

    • oVg
  • Captain JJ the Goo

    Taking this Header and the one from yesterday into consideration I’ve come to the conclusion that Zoe and Geoff need Cape Town.

    • HvR

      Specifically a visit to Fairview and Spice Route.

      • Captain JJ the Goo

        Spice Route ftw.
        Villiera for red wine.

        • HvR

          Choose Fairview because it is right next door and full of wine and cheese.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            True dat. Also easy to get to no matter where you live in WC.

          • DragonSpirit009

            I should really make a stop at Fairview again. It’s just like 15 minute drive for me!
            I miss the old wine tasting days!

  • Hammersteyn

    Cheese for dinner it is.

  • DragonSpirit009

    Not a big fan of wine but… cheese!! Any time!
    Planning a cheesy dish tonight anyway

  • Captain JJ the Goo

    I vote wine.
    Every time.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      I bet that confuses the IEC.

      • Captain JJ the Goo

        I just laughed aloud here. Thanks. 🙂

  • Nice shiraz red wine with some cheese… awww yiss!

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      Shiraz with a steak covered in blue cheese sauce.

      • Actually fillet with blue cheese sauce and garlic snails is freaking awesome !

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          Yes. I’ll have that.

          • Now I can feel I skipped breakfast and lunch today :

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Eish man. That’s not good. You needz the meat!

          • Hammersteyn

            skip………meals……….is such a thing truly possible?

          • You mentioned toasted sandwiches this morning… I was hungry even then just reading about it xD

          • Hammersteyn

            Ag shame man

          • At least I am pretty darn good with making “kook kos”. Got 2kg of short ribs in the freezer, gonna slow cook it tonight and drink some beer while I wait xD

            *And of course Warframe… a lot

          • Hammersteyn

            NICE!

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            I also tend to do it when either I forgot to pack a lunch and my work doesn’t afford me time to get food, or if I just have too much work and don’t get around to my food.

          • Yea, I don’t have a lunch break. So if I don’t pack lunch, I am screwed for the rest of the day.

          • DragonSpirit009

            That my kind of horror story!

      • Brady miaau

        Without the Shiraz…. Hmm. heaven.

        • o.O

          • Brady miaau

            What does that mean?

          • The wine is the best part 😛

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Aye.
            Though wine is one of those love/hate things.

          • True, it takes some time to start enjoying wine that does not come out of a bag after University.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            I remember when I was at Uni you could buy a papsak for something like R8.
            It was mostly vinegar though, to be fair.

          • I was at Tukkies. Never ever ever take papsak too Oppikoppie

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Haha. Eish.
            Right around the corner from where I stayed in Stellenbosch they had a little shop that sold offcut white wine in plastic bottles. I was never brave enough to try it though. I was a cheap student, like everyone else, but not that cheap ;P

          • HvR

            Sweet as hell followed by headache from hell

          • I have so many Route 44 wine glasses from the Audacia morning market (just outside Stellies) this year alone xD

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Hehe. I have a bunch of those cheese festival glasses.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I used to work for a liquor company. Go do a stock take in a warehouse where they store papsak & you’ll never drink wine again. Over 30 degrees, no air conditioning, week old spilled papsak coating the floor. Fun times.

          • Brady miaau

            Um. Ok. Let you go with that then, I will not.

            Apple Juice. Hmm. Tropical fruit juice.. Hmm. Water. Tea. Hmm.

            Wine? Is that not for my wife then?

  • So how did it go on the “Toys R us” battlefront today ?

    • Hammersteyn

      “Page not found”

    • Brady miaau

      Totally dead, even now. Got a message on front page, saw logo, but that was it. And that was 30 minutes ago, just to check.

      I was busy at the time the snap sale was on.

    • Mistake Not…

      Waited at my pc for 3 friggen hours, got to the checkout, Fallout 4 sold out. Rage.

      • Captain JJ the Goo

        It was R400 at CNA for months. Which I think it really cheap. Bought my pre-order there.

        • Mistake Not…

          PS4?

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Oh. No. PC version. :/

          • Mistake Not…

            Phew. Almost felt like an idiot. Would’ve been R500 at Toys R Us for PS4. Whatevs.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Oh wow. Yes, that’s a really good price. I don’t know if the PS4 version was cheap at CNA also.

          • Mistake Not…

            Well it ain’t no more. Just checked. BT Games it is.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Ah. Bought mine a few months ago.
            At that time my biggest worry was whether CNA would still be in business by Nov. 😉

          • Mistake Not…

            XD. My local one is very dead nowadays.

          • Never really understood why there is a difference in price between different platforms. In all honesty (and I am not taking a cheap shot :p) but the PS4 delivers lower grade quality as opposed to the PC so it should be cheaper xD

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Consoles have to pay licensing fees (royalties) to Sony and MS. So it bumps up the price quite a bit.

          • HvR

            + recommended pricing agreements.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Yes, that too.

          • Brady miaau

            And Steam? or is that just for delivery.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            I think Steam takes a tiny cut or asks a small percentage. But royalty fees can be anything from 13% up to 50%. Though the 50% is rare and usually only with entertainment such as music.

          • Mistake Not…

            ^Truth.

  • HvR

    If I’m ever in Dublin I’m eating at the White Moose Cafe. #VegansGITS
