Anheuser-Busch Brings Korean Soju Stateside

March 20, 2007


Everyone is pretty much accustomed to the crappy americanized version of sake, a flavorless brother to the real deal in Japan. Well hopefully they won’t screw it up this; Anheuser-Busch has recently announced plans to bring soju brand Ku stateside and in force.

Soju (소주) is an alcoholic beverage with origins in Korea. Soju is clear in color and typically varies in alcohol content from about 20% to about 45% alcohol by volume (ABV), with 20% ABV being most common. Its taste is comparable to vodka, though it is often slightly sweeter due to the addition of sugar in the manufacturing process.

Time to get drizzunk Korean style with some soju.

Y’s Typing

Y’s is Nihon Falcom corporation’s flagship franchise, an rpg that has not seen too much love here in the states in terms of official releases. Unofficially, it has been a big hit with ROM patchers and translators. Inside on of the games was a mini-game designed to improve your typing skill since it was on the MSX2 computer system that had a keyboard. Now one plucky coder has riped it out and made it a standalone game…FOR FREE!

With nimble fingers dancing across the keyboard, you can gallivant across the countryside typing to kill your foes. It definitely beats out Mavis Beacon BS and other typing programs. Personally I liked Typing of the Dead but then again I would play a pile of dog poo if you said it was fun.
