Scotch N' Games
Wee Dram 1 / Hollow Knight
Welcome to Wee Drams, our new segment that delivers laser focussed episodes directly to your ear balls. In Wee Dram 1, Will talks all things Hollow Knight, a tight, devilishly difficult and gorgeous 2D game from developer Team Cherry.
Introducing Wee Drams
A Wee Dram is a term that refers to a small glass of scotch, and that's exactly what SNG Wee Drams are, small episodes of SNG! In an effort to play more games and drink more scotch we will be producing these shorter episode to keep you inundated with all the scotch and game-y goodness you've come to expect. Don't despair! We will still be doing our longer form, classic episodes, but with these sprinkled in between! With Love, Graham and Will.
Nikka Coffey Malt / Prey
For one time only (probably), we're drinking a Japanese Whisky! Fresh back from a whirlwind tour of Japan, Will gifts us with the Nikka Coffey Malt, a deliciously sweet whisky with incredibly strong hints of vanilla. Nikka was founded by Masataka Taketsuru in the late 19th century and is now one of the most popular Japanese whisky concerns. We pair it with the equally delicious PREY, a simply great 'bioshock-like' game from the makers of Dishonored. Enjoy! We love you!
Bunnahabhain 12 / Mass Effect Andromeda
We wrap up our two-part series on Mass Effect: Andromeda and try to decide if we're getting old, or if the game sucks. Episode 59 is a no-holds-barred close-up look at the story, gameplay, strengths, and weaknesses of the game. The Bunnahabhain 12 fuels our discourse, so pour yourself a dram and join in on the discussion!
Chivas Regal 12 / Mass Effect Andromeda
The boys bring it all back around and dive deep on Mass Effect: Andromeda. The first of two episodes dedicated to the much anticipated continuation of the Mass Effect franchise, episode 58 contains our first impressions of the game. Pour a dram, put your feet up, and join us on our exploration of the Andromeda Galaxy. Slainte!
Ardbeg Uigeadail / XCOM 2
The boys drink the hard to pronounce, and probably even harder to drink Ardbeg Uigeadail; quite possibly the most punch you in the face scotch we've had on the show to date! We rightfully pair it with the equally tough XCOM 2.
Monkey Shoulder / Inside
Officially known as Episode 56 1/2, the boys re-record one of the best podcast episodes ever. Sorry you missed it, it was tremendous, really great, one of the best, but it had distortion. We sip on the enjoyable blend, Monkey Shoulder, and talk about Breakfall's Starwhal, Le Cartel's Mother Russia Bleeds, and dive into Playdead's Inside.
Bruichladdich Classic / Gwent Fractions 3
The gents spend time with the Classic Laddie, a smoky, boozy scotch from Bruichladdich. We pair it with Will's Jotun adventures and Graham's zany times with Frog Fractions 2. And, in what seems to be a trend, Will gets into Witcher 3 and the boys get real, real deep into the Gwent Beta.
Graham and Will wrap up 2016 with their Game of the Year and Runner Up. A quick trip down memory lane! Happy New Year!
Glenlivet 15yr / Titanfall 2 / Battlefield 1
The boys enlist in some future and past first person shooters! Graham and Will dive deep into the Mech-Warrior-meets-Human-Flight-Simulator: Titanfall 2. As well as muse on the macabre Battlefield 1, a game focused entirely on the First World War. It became increasingly difficult not to compare the two games, especially after a liberal amount of the Glenlivet 15yr!
Knockdhu AnCnoc Flaughter / The Expansion Pack
The boys expand on some of their favourite games! We explore the newest installment to the Baldur's Gate series Siege of Dragonspear, as well as The Witcher 3 DLC Blood and Wine. Of course, Graham gets utterly consumed by Gwent. We pair it all with the salty yet sweet Kockdhu AnCnoc Flaughter. It's a Romp of Otters!
Deanston Virigin Oak / Couch Co-op + Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
In a quest to overwhelm our senses, we played a bunch of games this episode! We've got Lethal League, Crawl, Overcooked, Reigns and get deep on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided! We pair this all with the Deanston Virgin Oak - a sweet, boozy scotch. Enjoy folks!
Glenlevit Nàdurra / Episode Fifty
We proudly present our 50th episode! And before we get way to excited about celebrating an arbitrary numerical milestone, you should just listen to the episode. Will and Graham talk about Hyper Light Drifter, Doom 2016, and No Man's Sky!
Tullibardine 225 / Overwatch
The watch begins with the Tullibardine 225, a strong, fruity scotch aged in Bordeaux casks. Graham and Will then get into Overwatch, select some characters and vie for play of the game.
Hazelburn / The Banner Saga 2
This episode of SnG is 2 years in the making! We fell in love with The Banner Saga 1 way back in 2014 and the hotly anticipated sequel is finally out. Join us as we get into the nitty gritty of Stoic Studio's fantastic followup, The Banner Saga 2. We also drink a rare scotch, the Hazelburn, from Campbelton, a lesser known scotch region home to only 3 distilleries. Enjoy!
Laphroaig Quarter Cask / Game Blend 2016
Listen to our 47th episode to learn about Will and Graham's time with Duelyst, Halo Online, Gears of War Ultimate Edition and much much more! We bring back and old favourite, the Laphroaig Quarter Cask. Come listen to what some reviewers are calling "certainly a recording of voices" and the high praise of "it's certainly not silence when you press play!"
Cù Bòcan / FPS Indiepocalypse
The FPS indiepoclypse is upon us! SNG follows up on our Witness adventures then gets thematic with a look at Firewatch and SUPERHOT. Our scotch is the mysterious and spookyCù Bòcan, a lore heavy peaty scotch from the Tomatin Distillery. Enjoy our 46th episode responsibly! Or don't!
Dalmore 12 yr / Massive Witness
We drink the Dalmore 12 year, an incredible, must drink scotch that uses sherry casks to much success. Graham lays out his quality time spent with 'The Witness' and Will mostly regrets playing 'Massive Chalice'. Enjoy folks!
Robbie Burns / Legacy of the Void
It's a wee late, but never not a good time for a wee dram. Our newest and 44th episode celebrates, tardily, Robbie Burns day! This episode also includes discussions on Hinterland's 'The Long Dark", Will's Gameboy Advance adventures and a deep dive into the final chapter of the Starcraft 2 saga: the Protoss focussed "Legacy of the Void."
Bowmore Small Batch / Halo 5 N' Games
Will makes a computer! The boys play Rocket League! We play all the Halo games! We drink the Bowmore Small Batch! It's really peaty!
