In Other News – 15 December 2016

1 min read


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.

    One of those awesome deserts that unfortunately only ever taste really good at a restaurant where the meal cost the same as an EA game with all the DLC.

      Still won’t eat it.

    Yeah that layer caramel should be thin! Not like the time I had to stab my food to get through to the creme!

    What’s with the fancy pudding. The Witcher 3 won game of the year and Cyberpunk 2077 is coming. Can we get pudding for normal people, for the real people, the down to earth people…


    Yes trifle, the every man’s pudding. Just like the witcher 3 is the every man’s game.
