Video Games

Post by Patchez »

Forza and the Dirt series for me when blasted. Nothing like driving like a bat out of hell, utterly faced and nary a cop in sight( no offense to any of the respectable officers on the boards).

I have also been doing Red Dead Revolver when pissed up lately. DUI on horseback, random violent shooting encounters, also there is no way in hell I'm catching my bounties while hammered. Oh yeah, I got a bounty on you and I'm blasted? You're one dead sum bitch.

Come to think of it I played the whole Mercenaries series with the same policies.

anybody remember "syndicate" from back in the day? just saw a modern remake in the store yesterday. four-player crime for cash. seems like a natural drunken cooperative game for those of you savvy with the technowhazzits.

I still love the old Touch-o-matic with the horse racing and the sex trivia games.

As far as the Megatouch is concerned I like anyone else am a big enough fan of both Regular and Erotic Photo Hunt.

Word Dojjo is the shit, too.

Trivia Whiz is what it is, but its not the same as back in the day.

ah, yes, the crack machine. if i don't know anyone in a bar, i'll play that. if i do know people, i'll see if they want to play. erotic photo hunt if there are chicks present, trivia whiz otherwise.

Syndicate was great. Remember X-com? That was/is the greatest game of all time.

Quazatron on my Spectrum 48k really kicked ass. I don't know how programmers could do it with so little memory, only eight colours and an incredibly slow processor.

you guys know that point, where you have to choose to drink or play? or you think you can take a swig, then a zombie or whatnot comes around the corner all unexpected-like? many games take two hands...i've said this before, but it bears repeating: i need me one of them hats with the two drink holders on it and a straw.

lots of those times tonight.

cheers, fuckers!

The trick is to find one of those games with the too frequent and ridiculously long load screens. the kind of a game that is just too annoying to play with out being wrecked. Plenty of downtime between action to swill.

Good games for drinking between load screens, or is that loaded screens.

Blood Omen: Legacy of Cain

Battlefield 2

Forza racing games, all of 'em

Project Gotham Racing has quite a bit of downtime between tasks.

RPG's more your style,

Fable 2 and Oblivion both have plenty of Drinking "rest stops" along the way.

Mass Effect Series also for you space junkie RPGers.

Starcraft Two can be played with beer/wine and cigars, but of course it's going to slow you down a bit and, well, I only made it way up to gold in single and platinum in 3v3, but the two others didn't smoke nor drink...
