    Xenosaga: The Drinking Game

    Post by Jintoki on Sat Jan 11, 2014 10:04 am

    First off, let me just clear the air and say that I am not an alcoholic (but that's probably what an alcoholic would say...).  Anyway, I was randomly browsing the internet when I came upon a Xenosaga drinking game:  http://www.barmeister.com/games/rules/6346/

    Some of the rules are pretty fitting for Xenosaga Episode I, though taking a shot for KOS-MOS' eyes turning blue seemed kind of pointless since it only happens twice in the first game.  I'd probably do double shots for those instances.

    Anyway, I thought it would be kind of fun if we could possibly think of other outrageous things to add to a Xenosaga drinking game (not that I fully condone an 8 hour drinking marathon, but you know).  I just thought it would be kind of a fun topic, and you don't have to necessarily drink to think of rules to add.

    Yeah, that list is not really trying very hard. On the other hand, I'm not sure I'll be able to come up with something better either - 'a shot everytime you use Spell Ray' doesn't sound very interesting, does it?

    Hmm...

    - How often Ziggy says 'I see' during the game? Does it qualify?

    - Every time an absolutely ginormous spaceship or celestial body sneaks up on our heroes without them noticing it until it is too late?

    - Every envocation of Worf Effect?

    I don't know, I can't seem to think up of anything catchy. Sad

    Aw hell yeah, I am all about this. |3  *raises glass*  Now I just gotta think of some good ones.  Off the top of my head, tho:

    - Every time someone mentions U-DO.  Drink all the alcohols forever when Helmer says it.
    - CHIIIIIIEEEEEF!
    - UZUKIIIII!  (I'm assuming we're including Ep 2 and 3?)
    - Any time curry is made, ordered, consumed, or otherwise mentioned.
    - Albedo laughs maniacally.  Or does something creepy.  Or calls MOMO "ma peche." (You may need regenerative powers to regrow your liver.)

    ... Iiiii'll probably think of more later, but yeah.  Xenosaga is full of drink-worthy moments. <3

    Nice ones, guys! I thought of a few:

    -If a cutscene lasts longer than 5 minutes, take a shot. And if a cutscene lasts longer, double the amount of shots for the next 5 minute intervals. Er, wait, that might be way too much...
    -Take a shot when ever someone says something incredibly vague.
    -For Episode III, do a shot whenever Shion is a bitch to Miyuki.

    Since I can't drink, I don't have too much to add, but bless this thread! :D

    I'm in the same boat-- I can't drink, but bless this post.

    I have some ideas though!

    -Wilhelm says "Zarathustra" or "Yeshua"


    -Margulis says or does something unintentionally (??) suggestive.
    -While we're at it: Albedo says or does something intentionally suggestive to Jr.
    -Jr. launches a cheesy one-liner
    -Every time there's a highly uncomfortable underaged panty shot in Episode I
    -"No-good older brother"



    ...Maybe it's a good thing I can't drink. You all are going to fry your livers with this game!

    That 'UUU-DOOOOOO' is the stuff. I can't imagine how Helmer's VA did it, but I find it beyond awesome.

    I can add some ideas too Smile

    -Every time when Shion say: "I don't understand any of this"


    - Anytime Kossy use "I am pleased to be of service to you."

    or it sound like this one.

    Drink for every chapter in each game that you complete without KOS-MOS being available.

    every time KOS-MOS says "Shion, I need to be cleaned".

    every annoying puzzle you complete in a dungeon of Episode II. (guess we're not getting far in those last dungeons)

    drink a whole bottle whenever something is referenced from 4,000 years ago or something is done that should be efficiently accomplished by technology by this point. For example, books, washing dishes (it's 2013 and we have dishwashers. Why are we still washing dishes by hand on the Elsa when we have artificial lifeforms that can grow replacement body parts for humans?).

    Another bottle everytime you see Bunnies "other" face.

    Oh god, the Bunnie horrorface.

    Also take a shot whenever someone calls Jr. "Rubedo."

    Or when someone calls Ziggy "Jan Sauer."

    Or when anyone calls anyone a name associated with their Tragic Backstory (TM).

    I'd say take a shot for every time the voice acting sucks in Episode II, but given Canaan's VA... oh dear. Probably not a good idea.

    I also forgot to mention-- drown yourself in all the alcohol available when you reach the "Winter Domain" scene. With Jr. And Albedo. You know which one I'm talking about.
