‘Beer Pong’ pisses off Connecticut Att’y General

An upcoming WiiWare game based on that most hallowed and cherished of American pastimes — beer pong — has raised the ire of Connecticut attorney general Richard Blumenthal.

“The video game rating board is under the influence — rating frat party video drinking games suitable for minors,” Blumenthal’s office said in a press release.

Alcohol use as depicted in a game of beer pong is only enough to garner a game a Teen rating.

But even this is no longer included in the game: The publisher, JV Games, has actually pulled the alcoholic content, renaming the game Pong Toss. It’s apparently been re-rated with an E.

But, then, Blumenthal is busy considering an even more important issue for Connecticut residents: should he run for governor or senator?
