Episode #29: Unrealistic Expectations

Marks & Spencer's haven't photo-shopped that woman honestly - she always has floating head syndrome

Ok I will readily admit, we finished recording Episode 29 less that 45 minutes ago as I write this intro – but were you to quiz me on exactly which topics we covered along the way I would not be able to completely answer.

I mean at some point we were taking the piss out of Marks and Spencer adverts (or just drooling at the boobies contained within) later I remember mention of Magical Trevor.

Anyway despite our off topic ramblings, which seemed to be numerous during this episode, we did actually manage to fit in a lot of gaming news. From Arkham City to  VVVVV, it all got a mention somewhere along the lines – in fact 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.

League of Legends Drinking Game

League of Legends
But why does that guy get to be the lead? Just shut up and sing Dave!

On of my regular features in Thirteen1 Magazine are my monthly Drinking Games.

Each month I take a look at some of the games that have come out and think up drinking games that you can enjoy when your friends come over for a few beers and some gaming.

I have made these games now for over a year.

While they are always available over at Thirteen1, I am quite proud of them and have decided to move some of them here to my personal blog as well.

This was the first one that I published in the magazine, created when League of Legends was first in beta and was based (much like the game itself) on a drinking game I used to play with DotA.

Now I like to make my Drinking Games last, so when I refer to ‘A Drink’ I have a solid gulp of Guinness or other Beer. You can drink whatever you want but please use common sense – Particularly with my heavier games.

The Rules

Ok simple as it comes really. Fire up a new match, and line up a bunch of drinks ready. When certain events occur they are flashed on the screen these are your cues to drink.

When your champion is killed by another champion

1 Drink for the Killer
2 Drinks for the Victim

When your champion is killed by a minion/turret

1 Drink for the Victim

When one of your teams turrets is destroyed

2 Drinks for every member of your team

Optional Rules

While the rules above will do enough to get you very drunk on their own, some people don’t know when to call it quits. This game as a result has a couple of Optional Rules that you can choose to use.

If a champion gets the killing blow on the turret

Killer gets to pick a member of the opposing team, The selected Victim has 3 Drinks

Champion Levels up (Even I do not recommend this unless your clinically insane)

1 Drink per level up

And that’s all there is too it.

It is a very simple game, but the rate at which these events happen in a given match are quite regular (each team has 11 turrets for example in the Summoners rift map) As a result I classify this game as Extremely Heavy.
