I’ve said before that I’m not particularly fond of desserts – especially when there’s so much sugar in them that they leave a ghastly, cloying scratch at the back of your throat. I do love a great Gelato, and of course a panna cotta, but there’s one dessert I’m incapable of saying no to (and really, I’ve tried!) is a Crème Brulee.

Yes, it’s really just a fancy creamy custard, topped with a crisp – but importantly thin – layer of caramel. Done right, with the right balance of vanilla, it’s the perfect end to just about any meal. That first spoonful? The one where you crack the sugary surface? That’s magical.

In other news: The aged keep using the middle mouse button in a new PSN deal, Rain Tombs on PC in January, Ghost in the Shell comes out of its shell and the dinosaur hunter returns.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were busy trying to appoint a minister of formal Formicidae. Yup, we need a new minister of fine ants.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
