The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Sweet Roll

This Friday Skyrim will be hitting the shelves and it’s one of my most highly anticipated releases of this year! Since I’ll be spending the entire weekend glued to my TV and ignoring all signals from my body that it’s tired and wants to go to bed (my brain will be shouting “DRAGONS!” to keep me perky) I figured I’d need some suitable snacks. I read a pretty funny article last week called “Things I Ate In Skyrim” that obviously included the infamous Sweet Roll. Before you climb up on your high armoured horse and start saying “that doesn’t look like any Sweetroll I’ve ever seen” this is a Skyrim edition Sweet Roll (note: no longer “Sweetroll” as it used to be in Morrorwind and Oblivion) that we got a sneak peek at - it seems to have gotten a bit of a visual upgrade and some frosting! I’ve gone with a dense spiced cake recipe that I think compliments the rustic, fantasy setting.

This video is fucking awesome

THIS! And they forgot the whole healing-by-hiding-behind-cover bullshit.

Players will control young female protagonist Nuna and her arctic fox as they try to rescue her homeland from an endless blizzard. Upper One calls itself the first indigenous-owned video game developer and publisher in the U.S. and Never Alone's inspiration comes from the centuries-old stories and folklore of the Iñupiat people native to the region. Priced at $15, it comes out this fall for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

This game makes me so happy. This is what indie developers have an opportunity to create and what, in all likelihood, AAA companies will be forever blind to. Keep an eye on this one, guys it looks brilliant

Catherine – Strawberry Tart (Katherine)

Katherine is Vincent’s long-term girlfriend who evidently has a bit of a sweet-tooth. She’s rarely seen without a dessert in front of her that somehow she’s been able to only take a small piece from. If I were dining at Chrono Rabbit I can assure you I’d be on my third slice of whatever strawberry covered treat was on offer. The source of Vincent’s current anxieties, Katherine takes some pretty interesting and disturbing forms in his nightmares. Even her fork is seen as a threat to him, well, she is usually the one doing the killing in her dreams. I can see why Vincent is so scared; her underlying dark streak and relationship pressures are enough to make me nervous! But as long as there’s desserts, everything’s okay.

GOG.com are giving away Dungeon Keeper for free and you fuckers absolutely have to play it.

If I want one thing for Valentine’s Day, it’s for everyone to play this beautiful gem.

And to never touch EA’s awful pay to win mobile game that shits all over a wonderful licence.

I HAVE BEEN WAITING TO PLAY THIS GAME FOR SIXTEEN YEARS

Christmas Special Appetizer: Fallout 3 – Yum Yum Deviled Eggs

After the complication of a trio of recipes for last weeks post, I felt something from a simpler time was needed. A time when women were women, men were quite possibly all exactly like Don Draper and mutants were mutants. Christmas is often hailed as the tackiest holiday thanks to gaudy decorations and glitter, but this also makes it the most retro. Apart from making my starter a prawn cocktail, deviled eggs come in as more of the American classic of yesteryear and Fallout 3 just happens to be full of these strange, vintage consumables. In the interest of safety I’ve removed all rads and rehydrated the eggs for your dining pleasure.

Portal - The Cake is a Lie

For my first attempt at Gourmet Gaming I thought I’d start with possibly the most famous case of food in a video game - so it’s obviously the cake from Portal. I’m well aware of the in-game recipe which includes fish shaped garnishes and industrial by-products (and perhaps I will attempt this more faithful, if insane, recipe at some point) but I wanted to create something from scratch , something that didn’t involve getting your cake from a box; this is Gourmet Gaming after all. 
My Portal Cake is a devils food cake with a vanilla cream cheese filling, smothered in a chocolate ganache. It’s incredibly rich and moist and perfect for anyone who loves chocolate. It’s also (thankfully) surprisingly easy to make!

Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box - Belle Classic Tea

Since moving to the UK several years ago the amount of tea I drink on a daily basis has drastically increased. I can only imagine this tea increase will eventually allow me to genuinely become British, as is only the way one gains citizenship. Professor Hershel Layton, along with other intelligent folk such as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, understand the importance of a good cup of tea. While not a traditional English Breakfast or Darjeeling, Layton’s favourite tea is a cup of Belle Classic, a bitter drink comprised of Oasis Leaf, Brisk Berry and Belle Tart Seed. Tea, like a puzzle, is a delicate process that requires both time and patience.
