Beer Pong Hits the Arcadejeffbarnes April 11, 2013
When I was a kid, my arcade days were spent playing Street Fighter II, NBA Jam and Cruis’n USA. I was also pretty good at Hoop Shot, despite my non-existent basketball skills. I grew up playing old school and Super Nintendo. By the time Nintendo 64 came out, I was pretty much past the video game stage of my life.
My old roommate had a Nintendo Wii, so when “Game Party” came out a few years ago, I had to buy it. Why would I buy a video game for a system I didn’t even own? Beer pong, of course. There was a part of this game that allowed you to play a version of video game beer pong. It was terribly done and not very fun at all, much to my disappointment.
Despite this, I could barely contain my excitement the other day when I learned about a new beer pong video game, “Beer Pong Master,” maybe one of the most revolutionary games ever created.
The game seems to work like any standard arcade game. You insert your money and try to get the highest score. Games feature 1-4 players, and you’ve got 60 seconds to hit all 10 cups. Cups on the screen will dim as they are hit, and with no re-racks, it will take some skill to hit all 10 in under a minute. There also appears to be some kind of tape line. Obviously, there isn’t any beer in the cups, but it still sounds pretty awesome.
A few of these have been spotted in Las Vegas already. Have you seen any in your area? Is this something you’d like to play?
