Episode #30: Chocolate teapots are the way forward

Who says chocolate teapots can't be useful? Whoever they are, tell them we think their wrong!!

You know what, I think both me and Gow are starting to lose the plot.

Seriously I think we managed to spend the first few minutes debating whether or not a chocolate teapot would be a practical hot drink creation/containment vessel. I think we finally came down on the side of yes but only were the chocolate substantially thick enough and perhaps dual layered with a vacuüm in between for insulation.

When we were not talking about random shite like that we also managed to talk about a bunch of this weeks gaming news from the Diablo 3 fansite visit to the 3DS price drop and even a bit on Baattlefield 3.

As always 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)
