Beer Pong on Wii

As if the Wii wasn't already a staple of every dorm across the country, now we have THIS.

Wii Beer Pong.

Yes. Beer Pong. Don't believe me? I'll say it again. WII BEER PONG!

As part of the upcoming title "Game Party" (Yes, it's another Wii party game collection, as if we don't have enough... anyway) as part of the November release "Game Party," you can play a game called Ping Cup, in which you toss ping pong balls into cups, which are arranged in a pyramid formation. Which, if you've ever attended a single party in your life, is BEER PONG (kids, you'll learn in time... hopefully not too soon for you toddlers).

Now, while I don't think anyone is going to buy this game as an alternative to actual Beer Pong, you still have to love that Midway had the balls (no pun intended) to take a shot (pun intended) at putting a drinking game into a Wii title. Hell, most Wii games have already been Turned Into drinking games! And you just know that half the dorms across the country will own a copy of the game, just for the novelty of it.

The only question now is, will we actually see those cute little Miis chug the cups after a shot is made? Can midway actually slip that past the censors? Let's Hope!

The game will be released on Nov. 5, and will include seven mini-games in all, including SkeeBall. Unfortunately, your Wii won't spit out tickets when you win on SkeeBall. Cheap Bastards.
