Hit Level 80, Slam A Dew

Game Fuel returns, but don't expect to see the Master Chief chugging these.

Nothing says XTREEEME quite like night elves.
I expect this one will just taste like the Halo version.
Mountain Dew's Game Fuel was a limited issue beverage released alongside Halo 3. It grew on me pretty quickly, and it mixed well with vodka. So I was a little sad to see it go.

Someone at Blizzard must share my love of irresponsible drink mixing, then, because the rebranded Mtn Dew is bringing Game Fuel back this summer with all-new World of Warcraft branding on it. The original citrus cherry flavor that the Master Chief loved to throw back returns as Horde Red. A new "wild fruit" variety will also be released as Alliance Blue.

I look forward to mixing the two flavors together and then adding Ketel One to the mixture. I think I will preemptively refer to this as a "Dark Portal," so named for the sizable hole it leaves in your memory after you drink 12 or 13 of them.

Uh... don't try that at home. Oh, and they should have called it "Raid Fuel."

TASTE TEST??

I need to change my pants.

Huh.  Blizzard's reputation:  -1 point.

At least, in my mind.

Oh god no...

Posted by Hamz

"Raid Fuel" is a somewhat perfect idea for a brand name of "gamer" drinks.

Posted by JohnDudebro

Goddamn it, Bob. What have you done now?

Posted by alsnuts2

Dude that sounds delicious except the Mtn Dew seems unnecessary .

Posted by BlackHawk53

Man, game fuel was good. Real good. Glad to see it back(but it's awful for you).

Posted by AlexDP

Yay! More Mountain Dew goodness!

"Dark Portal" - hell yeah, I'll drink to that.

Posted by JoelTGM

just finished a can of mountain dew actually.  It's one of those drinks that I like to have every now and then to change things up.

I only had the Halo 3 Game Fuel a couple times and I didn't like it all. I'm willing to give another shot here but I'll definitely be repping the blue Alliance version. Ally all day! YEAH YAY!

Posted by Diamond

I tried the Halo 3 Game Fuel, I can't even remember what I thought of it.  I kind of wish they'd always have some Game Fuel with one of the newest games in the art.  Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 5, Killzone 2.  I don't know why I would want that.

Posted by lordofultima

YES, GAME FUEL RETURNS!! I'm so excited, I just shit myself.

Posted by DeadMonkeys

If you mix one cup of Halo Game fuel, two cups of Gamer Grub, and one bottle of Manna Potion into a blackened pot at midnight,  the creature of a thousand abominations will rear its fearsome head and let loose the forty six terrors of the apocalypse. May god have mercy on our souls.

Someone I know for whatever reason was given 20 cases of the halo version from his job, he didn't want all 20 cases so gave away about 19 of them at a party I attended. I walked out with about 3 of said cases, each case had 24 bottles in it. Also every bottle was of the painted aluminum variety. I think I ended up giving a lot of it away too, not because I didn't like it but Jesus, who wants 73 bottles of it?

Posted by iAmJohn

Man, Game Fuel was awful, so I'm not too happy to see it come back.  I'll be sticking with Voltage, thanks.

Posted by AndrewB

I actually liked and miss Game Fuel. It's one of the very few "gamer" related drinks I actually enjoyed. The Halo 3 advertising... not so much.

The problem is that nowhere around me actually sells any sort of Mountain Dew except original and Code Red. Live Wire exists only in tiny, super expensive bottles. That purple stuff (Midnight grape? Something midnight...) I've only ever seen and tried once. Same with the Dew-mocracy flavors... I only got to try just one and that was only one time. So here's hoping they actually get this stuff around more.

Posted by AlexDP

Was just wondering, what's the source for the info? Can't seem to find anything else about this anywhere else...

Posted by RelentlessKnight

but you could expect the Lich King to drink these

Posted by Double0hFor

screw the dew...........just give me the vodka straight up!

Posted by bjorno

yay! its a dream come true!

Posted by DuhQbnSiLo

As an ex-wow player... I fell bad about saying this but, "World of Warcraft needs to die already"

Posted by Jayzilla

used to drive a Dew humvee around for pepsi. worked x-games and what not back in the 90's. i can't even drink the stuff anymore.

Posted by Jotun

That stuff was pretty good if I remember right.

They should just put this shit out for good.

Speaking of Mountain Dew (or should I say Mtn Dew) what the fuck ever happened to pitch black? That stuff was great, bring that stuff back Pepsico!

Posted by GreggD

The blue stuff could be good. Of course, I'm not going to be drinking it during a raid. I'll be drinking it while trying not to get my ass handed to me in Street Fighter.

Posted by ZombiePie

How much caffeine is in this shit? If its like Jolt Cola or Red Bull levels then I might give this drink a chance for nights when I really need to stay up, for those days taste really doesn't matter.

Wait, are they called mtn Dew now?

Posted by JoshLarson

Mountain Dew: Sell-Out Flavour! New from ActivisionBlizzard! Now in annually exploitable flavours  to aid everyone in acting like a potty-mouthed, racist frat boy! Limited quantities, buy now!

Posted by jmic75

Man wish we got all the weird dew flavours up here in canukistan.

Posted by TheHBK

Ahhh, why for such a game that brings down the reputation of gamers as a whole?  Still this is cool to see  it come back.  Gonna have to stock up.

Posted by JJOR64

Awesome.  I really liked the Game Fuel.  Got a 12 pack of it when I got Halo 3 and drank them all in 3 days.

Posted by TheWorstPlayerEver

Awesome to hear that game fuel is returning. I loved mixing it with Ketel One. Mountain Dew does it again

Posted by Gunner612

YEEEEEEEEEEESSSS!!!!

diabeetus anyone?

Posted by Kyle

I salute your glorious return, Game Fuel.

Posted by Kiemoe

I feel like I should be offended, but I friggin love gamefuel. And now I totally have to try it with vodka.

Posted by Timothy

Finally! I lived Game Fuel! I've been drinking Amp Overdrive lately because I've been craving it again.

Posted by Seedofpower

wow, marketing at its best.

Posted by Matfei90

I want to try a Dark Portal :P

Can you get this stuff in Australia?

You lived it?  You really take that "Do the Dew" slogan seriously.
Posted by The_Dude

Word, I need me some more gamefuel, I only have 17 left!

Posted by OzzerOzby

Dude awesome!

Yes! Why? Cause removing all the vowels from words is what all the cool kids are doing! (though admittedly, it would then be mntn dew)
Posted by RIP_Icewood

Awesome, Im going to be dinking one of these daily until they stop making 'em

Posted by theg3neral

Vault is better than Mtn Dew.

Posted by PercyChuggs

Go figure. As soon as Voltage starts getting some fans, Dew puts out a couple MORE flavors to cut it's knees out from under it! Or perhaps I have put too much thought into this...

Posted by TomA

Raid Fuel is a dumb name.I will drink about 100 of these.

Posted by KingOfIceland

So, is the "Mtn Dew" brand a sub-brand of Mountain Dew that does all the awfull vidja geam drinks or is it a complete rebranding of Mountain Dew?
