Default Priorities...

...I have them.



Techgage, Borderlands 2 and the Oak Collectors Pack full of yummy Innis & Gunn.

It was sold out locally, but my wife managed to get it from another town an hour and a half away and put it under the tree for me. I'll let you all know how the Winter brew is. Apparently it's a must drink and is only available in this pack at Christmas.

LOL, looks good to me! I don't think our local liquor store carried those boxes at all. Is there 4 or 6 in there?

I seem to miss all of the special edition I&Gs. Missed out on the Canada Day one also.

The store on the West Side still has Canada Day 2012s in. They were carrying the Highland Cask for a while as well. I'm super pumped about this winter brew though.

I talked to a guy in the Quispamsis store a year ago about it and he said it's amazing, but hard to find. To say that I was pissed that I missed it again this year is an understatement. Good thing I have a fine lady to keep me drunk.

Oh, and to put a big ass tv on our living room wall finally! Merry Christmas to us! 3 years in the marking and we went big. 52" big!

I'm tempted to move my rig out there and fire up BL2.

Had a quick taste of the Winter I&G last night... not too bad. I prefer the black label one though.

I have found playing games on a big screen TV isn't quite the same as on a dedicated monitor. Yes you get fully immersible sound and a comfy couch to sit on but the visual aspect just isn't the same. (nVidia vs AMD over HDMI issue).

You should give it a try, I hear big screen gaming is like having a 52" TV where your brain should be.

I couldn't agree more. For me, it's more about being up-close-and-personal with the game. I just don't feel comfortable sitting way back from a screen, and I certainly don't need a huge screen to enjoy gaming. I'd concede to preferring 3x1 over one monitor though :P
