FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Finally, A Soda That Tastes Like... Master Chief?

Posted on Thursday, August 2 @ 20:50:54 PST by Duke_Ferris
I often use the Manifesto to talk about more serious issues and gaming news. Then again, sometimes, I don't. This is one of those times.

We get sent a lot of odd stuff, but today's FedEx delivery was still a bit of a surprise. There, in special packing, was Halo 3 Mountain Dew, codename Game Fuel.

Are you kidding me? I mean, we make the Mountain Dew and Cheetos joke all the time, but that's the point, it's just a joke. You people weren't supposed to make an actual product.

Oh, sure. I have some EA water, and there's even GR Beer. But none of it is sold in stores.

Anyway, there was obviously nothing left to do but try it. So I poured some in our best crystal, sniffed the, uh, can, and tasted.

The color is nuclear orange, like the liquid innards of a glowstick, or possibly Covenant blood. Too sweet for my taste, reminiscent of the childhood memories of Otter Pops. The can claims it to be "citrus cherry" but the idea of it ever being near earthly fruit seems unlikely. It boasts extra caffeine, although likely less than the little nuggets of speed in my desk drawer known as chocolate covered espresso beans.

If for some reason any of you want to drink liquid Master Chief, you'll be able to buy it in a couple weeks. Can Halo 3 Cheetos be far behind?
