Gaming Under the Influence #8 ~ August 23rd 2012

By
Posted on August 23, 2012 AT 07:00am

NOTE FROM THE WRITER: We are going to work on doing this weekly series adding a once a month video. If you have any suggestions for games you want to see, e-mail the writer at Ken@DigitalNoob.com

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 all consoles and of course PC games. This week we dive into a game you can pick up on the PlayStation Network and XBOX Live, and that is my favorite arcade, which is…..


Week #8 Game-The Simpsons Arcade Game

This can be played with 2-4 players
Rule #1- Every time you die, you must take a drink
Rule #2- Every time you finish a level, you must take a drink
Rule #3- Whoever has the lowest score at any mini game must take the loser shot
Rule #4- Every time a person names a Simpsons character in the background, that person can delegate that drink to a friend

Week #8 Concoction- Black Velvet

This requires equal parts of champagne and a chilled stout beer. Some people prefer it with a little more champagne, but pour to your pleasure. The pouring is VERY important, as to NOT mix the alcohol together. First you will pour the champagne into a beer mug, pint, or Champagne flute, and follow it slowly with the stout on top.

Week #8 Loser Shot- Flaming Moe
Mix 1 oz of brandy, peppermint schnapps, sloe gin, blackberry liqueur, and strawberry juice. Pour all ingredients into a highball glass, stir, add cough syrup, ignite (AND EXTINGUISH) before drinking. NOTE: I have never made this drink before, but it’s part of the storyline of the Simpsons, so if it doesn’t work…get over it.

Week #8 Beer- Allagash Brewing Company ~ Allagash White

A highly rated Belgian witbier out of the Allagash Brewing Company in Maine, this beer gets high regards from everyone including the Beer Advocate Bro’s, who rate it a 100. The lemon flavor can be very overbearing, especially with the carbonation, but the balance of the yeast, lemon, and banana, it tastes nearly the same every sip. Well worth the try, and of course, if you can get the 750ml bottle, go for it!

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.
