    This was formerly "Beer Pong" but they we forced to take out any reference to alchohol. Which is a shame since it would have sold way more with the original title.

    the previews for this on the nintendo channel were kinda funny XD

    the game seems awfully boring as a single player.

    maybe more fun if you're drunk. but you risk getting spilling beer on your wiimote

    WiiWare: Kinda like XBLA without all the good games.

    I don't know, I've tried out every XBLA title and the only game I bought so far is GW2. Other than that, they just don't draw me in. On the other hand, I've bought LostWinds, Dr Mario, Toki Tori, and Defend Your Castle on the Wii and they're all really fun.

    Why can they just call it Beirut? Actual beer pong involves paddles.

    You've got me on Dr. Mario. Forgot I bought that. LostWinds is alright and Toki Tori I may buy shortly but will probably just play the GBC version.

    For XBLA games, I've bought 10+ already. GW2 being most recent of course. Granted, the novelty on some wore off pretty quick. What WiiWare could benefit from is N+ me thinks. [​IMG]

    I have to admit, N+ is the other one I've considered getting on the 360. The others, I have them as trials, and if I ever feel like playing them, I can play the trial and thats enough of it for me.

    No disrespect, but how old are you? ACTUAL Beer Pong does not use paddles at all.

    I don't know about you guys, but i just tried this out last night, and its a good party game. We weren't drinking with it, and had three people playing speed pong, then when my bud left, Wife® and I did some head-to-head play. She kicked my ass a few times.

    Its pretty enjoyable. In my mind, anyway [​IMG]
