Drunken Gaming: BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien #1

In order to break up the Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast a little, Myself and Gow have decided that we will take record ourselves playing some games Drunk.

We have no idea if were going to be funny but I can assure you we will enjoy ourselves and probably be very bad at them.

We thought the first should be a simple one – Not sure how that lead us to BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien but it did.

Well if the games industry can keep wheeling out that bullshit claim I think we can as well.

I mean its not as if it isn’t true either, you don’t know how the podcast was optimised and thats the point of the cloud, you don’t need to know how its done as long as it is.

No you’re more concerned with the actual output and I have to say that it was a pretty good one.

Gow got a lot more drunk than normal & Paddy was in a far more ranting mood than normal.

It was also helped by the variety of the stories this week ranging from the EA backdown on is Microsoft Ass-Licking at last week’s gamescom, Nintendo completely screwing over its hardcore fans again and the announcement of an X-com Expansion pack.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.

Paddy Plays BIT.TRIP Runner Drunk

Last night after recording Episode 108 of the Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast, while everything was compiling & uploading to the server, I took the time to record some more gameplay.

This time because I thought I needed something simpler to fit my drunken state, I played BIT.TRIP Runner. Turns out that even thought the first too levels only involve jumping I still needed something simpler it turns out.

Now there is an attempt at commentary but obviously in my drunken state I did not take into account the volume of the games sound track and most of my words are drown out by the very nice music the game has, All you can really hear is me getting more pissed off as I fail to progress.

Anyway Till Next Video!

Phoe and Cereal Play Portal 2 Drunk

Back when it was released I created a Drinking Game for Portal 2’s CO-OP Mode (which you can see here) , Having enjoyed it myself I had always if anyone out there had also played it.

Recently I found out that YouTuber’s Phoe & Cereal had not only played the game but had also recorded their adventures. I have been watching their videos with glee as they get more and more drunk and moreĀ amusingĀ as a result.

Their attempt has not finished yet, they are up to part 5 so far but I am keeping a running playlist alive and as each episode is published I will add it. However if you dont want to wait for me to notice them I suggest subscribing directly to their channel.

Seriously give them a watch you will enjoy them, Phoe has even introduced me to a new type of drink that I have to try out at the next games night.
