(or possibly PFB) to expect them to keep the noise down?

We had a BBQ earlier, most of our friends have gone home but a couple have stayed behind to play XBox (news to me!) Not a problem in itself, but they are downstairs shouting as they are playing a 'hunt each other down and kill em' game, while I'm upstairs trying to settle DS (9 weeks) for bed and have been at it since 7. Our house is small with thin walls and no door between the lounge and the stairs, so no sound proofing. DS is used to sleeping through normal household noise (talking, TV, dishes, washing machine, my big gob etc) but keeps jolting awake every time they shout. As I type this, one of them has just screamed
He doesn't have a set bedtime so it's not as if I'm being strict about him HAVING to go to sleep now, but he is knackered.
AIBU or PFB to expect DH to ask them to keep it down and not be shouting along with them? Or to have at least brought me a cuppa by now?
I think I might just be pissy because I didn't get any marshmallows earlier. I went to feed DS and when I came back they were all gone. Hmph.

Just go down and tell them to shut up, you have a baby that is trying to sleep.
Do it with your best glare.
Alternatively pick up the phone and wander past the living room saying to your best friend "yes, DHs friends keep waking the baby, you'd think they'd have more common sense and courtesy, wouldn't you?"

Nothing wrong with me asking, just wanted to check I wasn't being precious first! Although I don't see why DH didn't ask them, he isn't normally inconsiderate. I went and asked them. One said "isn't he asleep yet?" Can I have a medal for not twatting him upside the head? I must've had a look on my face, I heard DH shhing them. They've gone now and DS has gone to sleep.
I was tempted to plonk DS on DH and go to bed. Unfortunately, DH's boobies just don't cut it with DS!
