First Friday Drinking Game--Late Night Edition


June has finally arrived with the glorious summertime in tow. While schools have let out and vacations are drawing near, it is also getting unbelievably hot out--which is what makes the coolness of the night so darn inviting. Now is the perfect time to get some friends together for a little late-night First Friday Drinking (Game)!

The release of Metal Gear Sold IV is tantalizingly close, so this month we'll be raising our drinks to the entire Metal Gear series. Whether your playing a marathon or just dusting off MSG II, you can follow these simple rules with any combination of good ol' Metal Gear. Play long enough and you'll be Solid Snaking it in no time:

1 drink each time Snake has a smoke
1 drink for each cutscene that lasts longer than ten minutes
1 drink for each additional cutscene minute
1 drink every time Otacon cries
2 drinks every time Fortune whines about being invincible (we get it, already!)
1 drink for every cardboard box stealth mission
1 drink every time the sound of someone discovering you scares the bejesus out of you
1 drink whenever Psycho Mantis freaks you the fuck out
2 drinks whenever the Sorrow freaks you the fuck out
3 drinks if you find yourself missing Mei Ling
2 drinks for every torture scene
3 drinks if said torture scene involves at least partial nudity
1 drink each time Solid Snake stares at boobs (yes, posters and magazines count)
1 drink after Olga dies (make sure it's real vodka--RIP, girl)
2 drinks whenever you learn something about a character that makes you REALLY uncomfortable

And finally:

Finish your drink when you beat the game and still have no idea what's going on

Warning: Excessive drinking during gameplay may result in false notions of badassery to the point that you grow a snappy math teacher's mustache. Play with caution!

Think I forgot something? Suggest a rule in the comments section!
