Since the dawn of evolution (or creation, whatever), man has been seeking the ultimate beverage to help him survive in the untamed wild, proliferate the species, and most importantly, excel in video games. Well, the 500,000 year wait is over my friends, as Pepsi has finally introduced Mountain Dew GAME FUEL, a brand new concoction that will absolutely change the way you drink while playing video games. To properly showcase the amazing effects of this new beverage, it is being introduced alongside a game that is equally groundbreaking: Halo 3 for the Xbox 360.
I was initially quite skeptical about Game Fuel. I don't tend to drink soda while playing video games because most of the time I'm drinking beer. But I'd be kidding myself if I claimed beer would improve my scores or give me an edge over a seasoned opponent. Game Fuel on the other hand is especially designed and fortified with the caffeine you need to keep your reflexes sharp and your mind alert for maximum effectiveness.
The first time I poured Game Fuel into a glass, I asked myself, "What is this stuff, and is it radioactive?" It practically glows as you pour it! One sip however made me a believer. The sweet, refreshing taste is totally unique and hard to describe. I believe it's a combination of cream soda, orange soda, and egg custard snowball. My friends were equally impressed.
Let's face it: Once you pick up Halo 3 you're going to be playing the thing for days on end, if not longer. You don't want your health to deteriorate during that time. Playing Halo 3 without Game Fuel is like looking directly at a solar eclipse. You'd be better off viewing its awesome graphics through the pinhole of a box. Don't risk it! Game Fuel is so effective, Pepsi may as well be selling testosterone in those cans! Be smart, and drink as much Game Fuel as you can.
The box featured in these photos is a special promotional package I received from Pepsi. The cans are absolute works of art.
