Risk of Rain 2 - Indie Game Hidden Gems

Looking for value for money in terms of replayability? Look no further than Risk of Rain 2, an excellent buy for anyone that likes roguelike and/or looter/shooter games. First off, it is difficult to place the game in a single genre as it spans a few genres successfully. At the simplest level Risk of Rain 2 is a 3 rd person shooter with progression meaning the more you play the more you unlock, allowing you to get further in the game and thus unlock more items and characters, and so on. If you haven't played the original Risk of Rain, not to worry, neither have I, and I thoroughly enjoyed the sequel anyway. Unlocking and collecting items is where the main appeal of the game lies, the various loot you collect stacks to affect your abilities such as movement speed and attack damage and changes the gameplay every time (run) you play. This means that, whilst at first the levels will seem very similar and repetitive, as there are only small variations, the way each level unfolds differ

COVID-19 Blue Skies Are Fading - Cape Town Smog 2021/07/16

Whilst there are not a lot of good things to say about the Coronavirus/COVID-19 one major positive, if you live in or near a big city, is/was the reduction in smog levels. Cape Town skies were a lot bluer for a while, though my view of the city skyline is slowly returning more to normal, a muddy blue. View from Salt River - Cape Town - 16/07/2021

Brilliant Boerewors Bolognese Recipe (South African Sausage Ragù)

 If you like cooking you may often have seen recipes for Sausage Ragù online or in recipe books and thought 'where can I get some delicious artisanal sausage in this dreadful country where we have nothing like that at all,'.  You might never have considered that we have a massive range of excellent homemade sausages right here in RSA that you can get just about anywhere - boerewors. You would be surprised just how good this recipe tastes, the boerewors (sausage) gives the bolognese/ragù a unique yet familiar flavour and if you are a fan of Italian food then this is certainly a recipe worth trying. Just a note, boerewors comes in a wide range of varieties which use different recipes of spices and ratios of meat. For this recipe I used Grabouw Boeroewors from Pick n Pay, which is a pretty standard boerewors and I would recommend using something similar. Anything marked (optional) below doesn't have to be included however will improve the flavour of the sauce. INGREDIENTS 400-
