This is the stuff that gets Mario all messed up (actually, its probably all those shrooms)

Whoaaaaa! I don’t know who to blame, probably those damn hipsters. But wait, this is actually pretty cool. Beer made for video gamers? Am I being tricked? Yes, those damn hipsters again, they have tricked me. A couple of years ago I think most of us would have written this beer off as a goofy marketing ploy, but these days its really hard to tell whats truly cool anymore. Anyway, lets take a look:

Well, the stuff actually sounds really damn good. Heres what Tallgrass Brewing Company(they made the stuff) has to say about the beer:

Just like those classic video games we all grew up with, 8-Bit Pale Ale is spectacularly simple at first glance yet remarkably fun and complex when you get into it. Our Hop Rocket infuses the character of Austrailian grown Galaxy Hops into an American Pale Ale, giving a unique tropical, almost melon aroma in a classic American style.

ABV: 5.2%
IBU: 40
Malts: 2 Row, Victory, Vienna & Munich
Hops: Magnum, Centennial, Cascade & Galaxy

It sounds like a pretty good tasting beer. I plan to grab a couple of these along with a few of Tallgrass Brewing Company’s other beers and will have a full review shorty. I’m sure I’ll love the stuff (but who knows if I’m being sarcastic or not).

Cheapo Gameboy lot

Over this past weekend I decided to try my hand at what I could find on e-bay. I was trying to see what games I could pick up for Gameboy on the cheap. I realized recently that all the newer games coming out are not really holding my interest. Sure they are super shiny and full of explosions and what not, but I really miss the simple games of the past. This is why I decided to look for a few more Gameboy games to add to my collection. I came across a few games listed at $2.00 at the time. I bid up to $5.00 and ended up winning the whole lot for $3.00. Here are the games that I got:

The games are Kirby’s Dream Land, Golf, Tetris, Word Zap, Ren and Stimpy: Space Cadet Adventures and TMNT: Fall of the Foot.
Just to get Kirby, Ren and Stimpy and TMNT for that price would be great. But to get the other games as well is a great bonus, even if Tetris is my third duplicate copy. The game that I was most excited to play was TMNT. Back in grade school one of my friends had this game, but he never would let me try it out. I sat down outside and played TMNT today while I was grilling hamburgers. It is a fun game, but it isn’t very difficult. I played up until the final boss before I lost all 4 of my turtles. I’m pretty certain that I will beat the game on my second playthrough. The graphics are awesome for a Gameboy game and the music is as well. The first level contains the TMNT theme song(I think the last stage does as well). I popped each of the other games in my Gameboy very briefly. Ren and Stimpy has great graphics for a Gameboy game as well. Kirby seems to be a fun game (just like all the other Kirby games) and I’m sure I’ll give this game a full playthrough pretty soon. Everyone knows Tetris so I won’t go any further with that one. I don’t understand Word Zap at all (but I only gave it about a minute or two of play time). Golf looks like a game I could really get into and I probably will while sitting on my back patio this summer. I plan to check E-bay for good Gameboy lots throughout the summer, at a couple of bucks a pop I can afford to grab a few every so often(and of course I will be posting about them here when I do).
