Gaming Under the Influence #1 ~ July 5th 2012

Posted on July 5, 2012 AT 07:50am

One thing a lot of the adults have learned is that when you grew up, your Mountain Dew’s and Bawls Energy Drinks have turned into beer and Jack & Coke’s. A lot of us still play the party games, but things have progressed from the days of Mario Kart on the Super Nintendo. Welcome to the world of Gaming Under the Influence, where we introduce you to some craft beers, interesting drink concoctions, and video games that you can turn into drinking games.

Each week we will concentrate on a system and rotate it every week between PC, XBOX 360, Playstation 3, and the Nintendo Wii. This week we will be discussing some fun things you can do while you have friends over and playing on your Nintendo Wii. The Nintedo Wii is the typical party style system which brings you favorites from old Nintendo systems including Mario Brothers, Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers, etc. We are here to help you even the playing fields this week.

Week #1 Game- Super Smash(ed) Brothers Brawl

This requires anywhere from 2-4 players, and feel free to use the Wii controller or a Gamecube controller. The objective of the game is very simple, and that’s to level the playing field. All weapons are turned off except for the smash ball.

  • Rule #1- Anytime you kill someone, you must drink 1/3 of your beer. You must do so immediately and if that means you are vulnerable, well that’s what you get for being good. Adjust the amount of beer to your preferred level of intoxication, but remember the more time spent drinking beer, the more time it evens out the game!
  • Rule #2- Anytime you get the smash ball, after you are done using it you must finish your beer. Use the smash ball wisely, as to not use it when you have a full beer in front of you.
  • Rule #3- If you are the first one to die, it is your job to grab all the refills for everyone. Don’t worry, as long as they’re drinking more than you, you won’t be last forever!

Week #1 Concoction- Super Mario Apples

This is a rough drink (start off hardcore right?), but this drink has many variations. You need Johnnie Walker Red and apple juice. Looking to make a long drink? 2 shots of Johnnie and 10 ounces of apple juice. Looking to get hammered? 1 shot of Johnnie and 1-2 oz of apple juice on the rocks. Looking for a different way to drink it? Try putting it into a hot mug and shoot it warm.

Week #1 Beer-

With Nintendo being one of the first 8-bit systems, we have to offer you a look into Tallgrass 8-Bit Pale Ale. This American Pale Ale has a 5.20% ABV (Alcohol by Volume) and is coming from the Tallgrass Brewing company. What makes this beer unique is the Australian grown Galaxy hops which allows for a nice melon-y smell, and giving it a nice tropical taste.

That will do it for this week do it today. We want you to drink responsibly and always have a place to crash or a designated driver if you intend on drinking too much.
