BEER could double in price in the UK as a result of 'severe' weather events and global warming, according to a new international study from climate scientists. This price rise would be driven by global shortages of barley, which would have the effect of reducing beer production throughout the globe. The research, published in the Nature Plants journal, was carried out by scientists from the US, China, and Mexico, as well as from the University of East Anglia in the UK. They reached their conclusions by modelling the effects of climate change on the global production of barley, which is used to make beer. They then worked out the impact of a decline in barley production on the supply, price and consumption of beer in 34 international regions. And for the UK, they found that Brits would see a drop of anything from 0.37 billion to 1.33 billion litres in the amount of beer they drink every year, while they could have to pay double the normal price for a pint.

Tecmo Super Bowl, the sequel to the beloved Tecmo Bowl, embodies the best of the old-school 8-bit football style. It plays less like a coaching sim than modern football games, yet it nevertheless avoids being an all-out action title, too. By walking the line between the genre’s two extremes, Super Bowl continued Tecmo’s trend of producing top-flight sports games … [Read more...] about The 35 greatest NES games, part 2
