CH-CHECK IT OUT: THE DRUNKEN MOOGLE

I find it refreshing that video games can inspire creativity. The results are as varied as video games themselves. There have been many works of art, clothing, video series, and even games which can be traced back to video games. However, as an occasional tippler, I was delightfully surprised when I came across Video Game inspired alcoholic beverages.

Enter the Drunken Moogle: A blog site which caters to gamers who would prefer to drink something more sophisticated than just a beer. Here, many drinks can be found along with the recipe and instructions on how to make it. Also featured on the site are gaming related drinking paraphernalia and great drinking games that can be played at gaming parties, such as Super Smashed Bros.

Here are some drinks that are on my To-Do list:

Quick Boomerang (Mega Man 2 Shot)

Anti Sora (Kingdom Hearts Cocktail)

Yoshi’s Eggnog

Note: NUReviews does not condone underage drinking. Please abide to the laws regarding alcohol consumption in your country, unless you’re in international waters, then do whatever you want. Also, winners don’t drink and drive, unless it’s in a video game.

CH-CHECK IT OUT: DEAD OF KNIGHT

Alright, I know this isn’t very professional, but I’m only going to do this once. I just finished my final project game today, and it’s up for download on indiedb.com. I’d like everyone who reads this to go check it out if they can, my team put a lot of work into it and it really shows when you play. You can check out the video in this post or just go straight for the download.  I’d personally like to give my thanks to my entire team, because if it wasn’t for all the hard work they all put in, none of us would be where we are today, and we wouldn’t have such an amazing game.
