Goldeneye Is Back – Ba Da Ba Naaaaaa

Uh-o. The game that changed the game is back, son!

If you’re like me, all you remember from 1997 is roaming around in the complex and just hoping that a bunch of proximity mines don‘t blow Baron Samedi‘s face off.  This game caused more fights amongst friends/controllers being thrown about more than any game in history. Especially when someone wants to be Oddjob because he is so damn small and hard to shoot.

This game was a classic for it’s one-of-a-kind, epic multiplayer action. Who doesn’t love a good knife fight? The new trailer for the Wii version made it’s E3 2010 debut this week.  Let’s hope that it lives up to it’s predecessor and isn’t thrown together halfheartedly.

If you’ve never seen the original (then you’re probably a liar, but just in case), here is a good review:

Get Your Dad Some Johnnie Walker This Father’s Day

Mother’s Day gets all the attention, but Dad’s need some appreciation too. Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday, and if you’re like most dudes, you probably aren’t prepared to show your Dad some love. We all wait until the last minute to get gifts for our Dads (if we bother to get ‘em anything at all). Father’s Day gifts tend to be a bit unimaginative – ties, socks, Best Dad Ever mugs – that sorta thing.

This year, don’t jip your Pops. Get him something you know he’ll enjoy (and possibly share with you). Get him some Johnnie Walker. If you’re wondering which bottle to get him, don’t worry. This quick rundown of the different Johnnie Walker labels will help you sort out which bottle is right for your Dad.

Johnnie Walker Red Label

Does your Dad like spicy food? Does he enjoy mixing Scotch with other stuff? Are you on a budget this year? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Red Label is your pick. Red Label is a utility, everyday scotch that has a bit of a bite, but plays well with other mixers.

Johnnie Walker Black Label

Is your Dad old school? Is he a stubborn, no-nonsense kinda guy who knows what he likes and sticks with it for the long term? If so, you can’t go wrong with Black Label. It’s complex, smoky, well-crafted and perfect straight up.

Johnnie Walker Green Label

Does your father care about the environment? Does he like variety, earthy blends and subtle aromas? If so, go with the Green Label this Father’s Day. It’s an intense, flavorful whiskey that combines pure malt blends from multiple regions in Scotland. If you’re Dad has a discerning palate, get him some Green.

Johnnie Walker Gold Label

Does your Pops drink Scotch on the rocks? Does he have a bit of a sweet tooth? If your Dad likes smooth, creamy Scotch that unleashes warm, satisfying flavors when served chilled, Gold Label is the way to go.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label

Okay, has your Dad been especially awesome to you this year? Have you skimped out on great Father’s Day gifts for awhile? If you really want to show your Dad that you appreciate him, you gotta go Blue. Blue Label is liquid amazing. It’s the pinnacle of the Johnnie experience. Only hand-selected, cash-money casks get set aside to make Blue Label bottles. Created by Master Distiller Jim Beveridge, Blue Label is the best of the best. It certainly beats the hell out of a Best Dad Ever mug.

Johnnie Walker is offering complimentary custom engraving on bottles of Blue Label for Father’s Day. Check out the Johnnie Walker site to learn more.
