In Other News – 17 March 2015

2 min read


It’s St Patrick’s Day! For those of you of Irish descent, it means something about snakes and stuff. For those of you who aren’t remotely Irish, it means drinking beer, drinking some more beer, and finishing it off with more beer. Some of it green, sometimes. What better way to celebrate St Paddies than with the most Irish of meal: a single, boiled potato. I kid, I kid.

No, for today, we have a rustic, rich and delicious Beef and Guinness stew, served with champ; mashed potatoes and chopped scallions with butter and milk. Yum! As usual, we’ve had a bit of fun injecting a bit of Oirish flair in to our header images today. Did you spot ‘em all?

Here they are:



A sneaky little clover from Zoe


Another clover, from Zoe


A Patrick Badge from Darryn


A clover in a the 3DS menu from Geoff


Sub Zero has a clover in his face, from Geoff


Numerous little clovers, from Geoff


Apparently The Guinness Harp, from Zoe. We’ve taken away her Photoshop.


The Whole Thing is green, from Darryn


LEGO Patrick, from Darryn


Background movie poster change to poster from 1993 shlock horror Leprechaun


A not-so-subtly-hidden pint of Guinness from Zoe


While many saw the Guinness sign, nobody saw the hidden Patrick from Darryn


Replaced in-game poster with real-life poster, from Geoff.
