Episode #28: These things are harder solo

No matter how old he gets or what he tries, Gow will always look no more that 12 years old ...Annoying ain't it!

Well a week has passed so it is once again time for another podcast, so one has been recorded.

This week however it was just DrunkenGamer behind the mic, as the day of recording was actually Gows birthday.

As happens on these occasions, rather than leave you out in the cold without an episode of the podcast, we record it solo – the downside to this is that without someone to talk too the pocast is about half its usual length.

Now as this thing is bordering the two and a half hour mark each week a shorter one every now and again is probably a welcome break.

Links to almost all the topics covered are after the jump.

Also as always we are still taking suggestions for the mid podcast songs. So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played

Anyway enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thing.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Drinking Game

It doesn't matter what game it is you always default back to Ryu eventually

When it comes to drinking games, you really can’t beat a good old beat-em-up. This week saw the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.

This game mixes all of your favourite Capcom characters; such as Ryu & Dante, with characters from the Marvel Universe; such as Wolverine & Spider-Man.

The mash-up results in some fast-paced, old-school ass kicking – as such, the any drinking game based on it has to be likewise old school and fast paced.

This game is based on the simple principal of levelling the playing field, be it skilled player or lucky button-basher this game will bring everyone down to the same level soon enough.

Rules

Down & Out – Playing the game winner stays on, at the end of each match each player takes a drink for every person on the other team they KO’ed.

That’s Just Embarrassing – If your last character isn’t knocked out by a special move, 1 Extra Drink for the winner, otherwise 1 Extra Drink for the loser.

Going the Distance – If a player manages to keep the controller for a full circle of all the challengers in the room, Everyone else in the room has to take Two Drinks

Obviously due to the speed of this game, and the fact that each round could see you having as many as 4 drinks, I would classify this as a Heavy drinking game (and one I can’t wait to fire up at the next games night)
