Let's Drink to Battle Block Theater: Return of the John


It's another Thursday and I still ask "Where are my PAX Prime tickets!!!" I know I need to calm down before the drinking rage gets to me. Speaking of Tuesday the other half of Indies Need Booze, John, passed out due to his new job so he missed the stream earlier this week. Who can blame him?  Sometimes you just want to come home from work, grab a cold one, and fall asleep. Well, since people were expecting a co-op stream-- we are doing Battle Block Theater again. Same rules, but more of the drinking you have come to love.

Instead of describing the game again, lets talk about awesome news coming from Battle Block Theater. Just recently some indies have been getting involved with the juggernaut game known as DOTA 2. The narrator from Stanley Parable can now be purchased to make your announcer sound even cooler. What first started as a joke has ended up being a reality as Mr. Stamper (narrator for BBT) himself said if he got more than 100 re-tweets he would throw his hat in the ring and become an announcer for DOTA 2. It is now a reality, but we are hoping this DLC comes sooner than later. This is another game I have to actually play and try out.  Maybe we'll do a stream... maybe. 

Now for the drinking game... again:
The best of friends: You made it to the end of the level without you and your friend dying so take a drink.
Looking Cool: Unlock a new costume or weapon and of course take your drink
You suck: If your team mate happens to kill you take a drink
Perfectionist: Collect all the gems, yarn, and beat the level in time take three drinks
Repetition: If you hear a line by The Narrator more than once take a drink

Let's Drink to Battle Block Theater


It's Tuesday again and you know what time it is! Finally, all of those great games have come out.  I only wish I had the time to play them all! In other news-- PAX Prime tickets will be out in no time so make sure you follow them on twitter. Even in our drunken stages we make signing up for PAX Prime tickets drunk proof by turning on notifications from the official PAX twitter. Honestly, you all should do the same. We have big news coming up for PAX Prime, but we will wait till all our drunken plans are set.

This week we are playing Battle Block Theater by The Behemoth. The game just recently came out on Steam for PC and Linux and we are glad to drink to it tonight. This game is great for all you platform lovers of co-op and competitive variety. They even have a fancy engine for players to create their own levels to share with friends (or enemies). Earn gems to unlock new costumes and yarn to unlock new weapons. Just get ready to see me get nice and drunk!

Now for our drinking game:

The best of friends: You made it to the end of the level without you and your friend dying so take a drink.
Looking Cool: Unlock a new costume or weapon and of course take your drink
You suck: If your team mate happens to kill you take a drink
Perfectionist: Collect all the gems, yarn, and beat the level in time take three drinks
Repetition: If you hear a line by The Narrator more than once take a drink

You can see us get silly tonight from 8:00pm to 9:00pm eastern on Twitch TV. Keep it boozy you crazy indies!

Let's Drink to Killing Floor (recap)


This is a triumph.  Not only did we go an entire stream without anything breaking, but we had a great time playing Killing Floor in celebration of the Killing Floor 2 announcement!  Success!

Let's Drink to Killing Floor


Our second stream of the week has come! Again, sorry about Tuesdays stream we are new to this whole Twitch thingy. It was a huge amount of fun and horribly captured all at the same time. For anyone who missed it we got TJ from Pwnee Studios to play some Awesomenauts with us. Let's just say he kicked our asses good. Damn you Bleeding Anus!!! (Don't think about that too hard or YOUR anus might start bleeding)

Now we are doing a Killing Floor Stream tonight because of great news of a Killing Floor 2. You should read this article right here and get super excited for it. Just thinking about it makes me want to party all night long! Trust me, this game will be a first day purchase for all our drunken staff at Indies Need Booze.

Killing Floor is a co-op FPS that pits six players in a battle for their lives against the abominations of Horizon. This game will make you shit your pants with fright (or joy?) as you survive ten rounds to defeat the patriarch-- which is the master monster behind each level. Killing monsters earns you cold hard cash to buy new weapons and armor.  Of course, the game gets harder and harder and HARDER after each round and team work is essential to winning the game.

Here is our drinking game to go along with our stream tonight at 7:00 pm Eastern.  

Survive the night: Beat the Patriarch at the end of ten rounds then and take three drinks
Not Again: You died so take a drink
I Got Some Money for Ya:  Every time you buy a new weapon take a drink
Scrake Solo: Defeat a Scrake without any help take three drinks.
Don't Pound Me Bro: Whenever your team kills a flesh pound take a drink.

Again our Twitch Stream is from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm eastern. See all you drunks there!

Lets Drink to Awesomenauts (again!)


It's another week of gaming with all of us at Indies Need Booze. Finally the time has come for Super Time Force and Battle Block Theater on Steam.  I am jumping up and down with joy! For now though, lets crack open beer and reflect on the good tidings to come. Another game that just came to early access on steam that you should all get is Minimum. It's a third person shooter with the hot gameplay style the kids are calling MOBA.  Also, did you know they finally changed the dates for PAX Prime on their webiste? Keep your eyes on the website as tickets will be on sale soon!!!

Awesomenauts.... again? Yes, this game again. Our good friend Steven, also known as Recruit, will be joining us for the festivities and maybe even a drink or two.  We are playing the same drinking game we had from last week, but for all of you who forgot the rules-- here they are!


Costume Party: For every player who is wearing a purchased costume that round take a drink. 3 purchased costumes = 3 drinks
Domination: If the entire team is wiped out on either side waterfall for three seconds.
Turret Destroyer: When your team destroys a turret take a drink
Cannon Fodder: Anytime an NPC kills you such as a bot or turret take three drinks.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner:  Every time you kill a player take a drink.


Again here is the link for where you can join us! Tune in from 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm tonight for the crazy drunken action.

Let's Drink to Broforce! [recap]


We are still working on some sound issues, so when the game gets loud it may be hard to hear Jacob.  I was not able to join this one, but I will for sure be on the next one!  Take a look if you missed it.

Let's Drink to Broforce


It's that time of the week! Before we get into Let's Drink part, this week has been crazy for video game announcements! With Super Time Force, Battle Block Theater (Steam), Transistor, and Hack N Slash we will have plenty of great content to be creating drinking games for. I just wish I had a bigger wallet and more time in the day to play these! May is turning out to be a damn good month for gaming.

This week we got Broforce. Get ready for a trip down memory lane in action films and video games. Bodies will fly and battle grounds will be destroyed as you journey to take down mercenaries and the devil. This game is can get difficult because each bro can only take one hit. If you enjoy watching things explode and even character references to such great films as Evil Dead or Robocop, then you really need to get this game ASAP. Right now the game is in Early Access, but don't let that stop you from supporting them!

Now for our Broforce drinking game!

Bro in Black:  The Bro in Black is all we need. Take a drink every time you get Jay.
Mission Failed:  Every time you lose a mission take a drink.
Bromance: Don't lost a single bro in a level then take a drink
Fastest Bro in the land: Finish a level in under 1:00 then take a drink
Expendable:  Every time you see a character that was in The Expendables take a drink

Again our live stream is tonight from 8:00 pm to about 9:00 pm eastern. See you all on the Twitch side!

Let's drink to Awesomenauts!!! (recap)

The internet gave us some issues and the video ended up getting chopped up a bit, but here it is in most of its entirety.

Part 1


Part 2


Part 3


Let's Drink to Awesomenauts


It's another week to celebrate the fact that I still have a liver and my body can process the delicious alcohol coming into my system. Thankfully, I save all my good drinks for our Twitch stream. A lot of great games are coming out by the end of this month, but one game I can't get enough of is Awesomenauts. So, pick up an ice cold PBR and relax after a hard day of work. You will probably be seeing me playing this at least once a week from now until forever. 

If you haven't played Awesomenauts... where have you been? Living under a rock? Awesomenauts is a 2D MOBA. Not just any 2D MOBA, but the best one!!! Join red or blue team as teams of 3 vs 3 fight to take over the other teams base. You collect solar, which allows you to buy upgrades and skills to defeat the enemy team. On top of that, the game has a great art design. There just so adorable. Literally, you can play as a monkey in a space suit. His name is Yuri and you will learn to loathe his very existence.

Now the fun part of the post is the drinking game! Let's get to it.

Costume Party: For every player who is wearing a purchased costume that round take a drink. 3 purchased costumes = 3 drinks
Domination: If the entire team is wiped out on either side waterfall for three seconds. 
Turret Destroyer: When your team destroys a turret take a drink
Cannon Fodder: Anytime an NPC kills you such as a bot or turret take three drinks. 
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner:  Every time you kill a player take a drink.

There you have it the ingredients to get hammered! See you all tonight from 8:00 pm to 9:30 on Twitch!
