LA Noire Drinking Game

Cheer up bud, Perhaps the sequel will be a more entertaining game.

By special request of friend and Thirteen1 music expert Alec-Ross Bower, I have taken a look at LA Noire to create a drinking game. Now I have only the first few hours of this game and I would normally give it longer but I think there are enough repeated actions already to make this work. Personally I could not play the game sober as it bored the crap out of me, but it actually made it playable.

Now this is one of my few solo drinking games but it can also very simply be turned into a group drinking game by handing the controller to the right between cases and having everyone else in the room do the drinking instead of the player.

Now for anyone that has not read one of these drinking games before, here is an important little fact. When I refer to ‘A Drink’ I am talking about a quick gulp of whatever beer takes your fancy. Personally that is Guinness, but you know what you can handle and I will leave it to your common sense beyond that.

Rules

My Hats off to you: Whenever Cole manages to lose his hat Take a Drink if its shot off his head Take 2 Drinks

I’ll have a chaser with mine: Whenever the game suddenly throws Cole into a foot chase Take a Drink

Once a Beat cop, Always a Beat cop: Whenever a street crime comes in over the radio, Take 2 Drinks if you ignore it, Take 1 Drink if you handle it.

Someone has to pay for the damages: At the end of each case, Take 1 Drink for every $1000 of damage & injuries

Drink to forget: Whenever Cole has a flashback to his time in the army Take a Drink

Wasting police time: Whenever you pick up and inspect something on a crime scene that has nothing to do with the case Take a Drink

Nothing worse than self-doubt: During an interrogation if you having to back out of accusing the suspect of a lie Take a Drink

After playing this a few times, I can indeed confirm this is a Very Heavy drinking game

Episode #27: Lets try this again shall we?

This, is exactly what the podcast felt like last night

So, Last week we tried to do this podcast live, and due to my retardism (having put the fan in backwards in my case causing my pc to overheat) things did not go as smoothly as we would have liked.

So for that reason we agreed that we would do it live again, its only fair as we did say we would.

There is only one word to describe the outcome however: FAIL!

We were live for the first 20 minutes of the podcast before we realised that our sound was not just intermittent – in parts it was just completely absent.

If you want to see that failure we have left it online for all to see over at DrinkyTalkyThing on USTREAM: . Fortunately we did also have the Audio recording software on the go so that at least got recorded, but even that is not without its flaws.

Firstly for some reason, Gow mac decided to record the thing in a higher bit rate than normal, which while sounding like a good thing is actually a pain. Then to cap it off it had only recorded a single channel of sound so the podcast had to be output in mono.

That’s not going to stop us releasing it though, so just bear with us and we will be back up to standard next week (we hope)

Links to almost all the topics we 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.

Episode #26 – The Live Drinky Talky Thing Podcast!!

Gow & Paddy enjoying a fire while drunk
Gow & Paddy enjoying a fire while drunk

Why, Oh, Why, did I come to the conclusion that for our 6 month anniversary episode a live podcast would be a good idea?

I mean seriously what the hell was I drinking? Oh that’s right it will have been Guinness as always as this idea came up about episode 16 or so.  Since then I have been silently dreading the oncoming approach of our 6 month mark, while at the same time also relishing the prospect.

I mean seriously I don’t think either myself or Gow thought that we would actually manage an unbroken streak of this long or if we did we seriously doubted we would still have any listeners left, but here we are.

However I think that is enough stalling, despite 2 computer failures and the addition of Pimms much live podcasting was done. We would like to thank everyone that joined us in the chat even if you did derail us a few times.  For the people who could not join us live, all the parts of the cast are available for viewing at  DrinkyTalkyThing on USTREAM: . The normal podcast will be out in the next day or so once I’ve converted the videos.  [Update] Audio version of the podcast is now available.

Links to almost all the topics we hope to cover 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 .

Episode #22: God Bless the Macgyver Mic

MacGuyver Ain't got shit on the DrunkenGamer

Well were back, by that I mean the DrunkenGamer is back. Back from Corfu and shockingly with not even the remotest sign of having a tan.

However this week was E3 week, so even though we tried to keep the podcast to a normal length such a task was clearly impossible. If we missed anything from E3 so far, we will probably mention it in next weeks podcast.

Suffice to say that this podcast is longer and more rambling than any other in Drinky Talky Thing history, rolling in at a massive 2hrs 44minutes.

We have however done our best to cover as much of E3 as has happened before this podcast went to the studio (Paddy’s living-room) as we humanly can.

As always we’re 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.

Episode #20: Random Curly Hairs & Sporadic Confusion

With her as the medic, I think I would get shot a lot more often

All I have to say about tonight’s podcast is that I have no idea where the random curly hair came from. It may have been what Gow thought it was it may have been something else, further investigation was not worth considering.

Strangely for the last two weeks both myself and Gow seem to have been more affected by the beer than normal.

We seem to go off track a lot more regularly each week than we did before, no that its a bad thing obviously. Some of our more entertaining stuff is when we go off on one.

Seems that Gows friends have also lost the plot again, I’m really not sure if some of the random words he had to fit in were even real words.

Anyway we managed to fit them in and between bouts of what I will henceforth classify as ‘podcast touretts’ we also managed to cover most of what is linked below.

We’re also 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.

Episode #18: Sometimes Gow doesn’t understand

This was exactly the look Gow gave me when I tried to explain the previous podcast title

Well for weeks now I have said that I should write these intros as soon as were done recording.

Well for once I have managed it, which is good as I really would have forgotten about the lemur.

This podcast was originally going to be titled ‘Double the Random’ as this week Gow had the same random word suggested twice.

However while we were listening to the break song, I set that and he stared at me like a confused lemur.

Fortunately you guys don’t have to be confused as everything we talked about is linked below.

Another regular feature got a revamp this week as well – the mid podcast songs. From here on in they will always be suggestions from listeners.

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.
