Just having listened to the newest Bombcast, seeing this rather prominently in the new releases is sort of repulsive (Weird to say the least). I don't fault the GB crew for it, as this is a freely editable database, but this as a "Video Game"? No. I've never seen these "hold onto the treasure!" city hunt phone games in GB, i'm sure they're somewhere in the database, just not right on the front page, for one.

But Mountain Dew is an alright pop methinks. Doritos on the other hand, DUDE. What's better than having a bag of Doritos(R) at your side while playing your favourite video game? To that I say "NOTHING".

This whole game page is named incorrectly.

The game's actual name is "Halo 4: King of the Hill Fuled by Mountain Dew".

I shit you not, check it out.

As far as I can tell it's a real game on iOS. It is spelled "fuled" however.

I kind of want to play this...I'm a bad person. : (

I don't even like Mountain Dew!

#20 Posted by ShaggE (6550 posts) -

Advergaming isn't without merit. It gave us some strangely solid titles in the past. I'm not sure why I'm so repulsed by this one in particular.

EDIBLE. Yummy, like DORITOS.

#31 Posted by ajamafalous (12031 posts) -

So it's like foursquare that you have to pay for?

#32 Posted by MattyFTM (14417 posts) -

It seems to be a real game. That seems to be it's real name. Therefore it belongs in the database.

@MattyFTM: I look forward to seeing this thread turned into a discussion about Mountain Dew and Doritos.

I know; that's why I acknowledged it as possibly being a pun. I just couldn't tell if that was intentional or if you confused the word "editable". (Turns out to be the former.)

Haha it is a typo, i fixed it. Thanks for pointing it out. In before the grammar nazis start checking the spelling.

I thought this was the funniest thing I saw on Giant Bomb today until I realized that there was an ad to meet lovely, single, Phillipino women in the margin. Now I'm aroused, and I want Doritos and Mountain Dew. WTF? EDIT: I just realized how creepy this sounds. Oh well. It's out there now.

Actually it's name spells it "fuled". I pray to every god in every pantheon that it's a typo but humanity has sunk low enough that this exists so who knows.

Master Chief's armor is made of Mountain Dew. It's canon.

#40 Edited by jakob187 (21691 posts) -

Not gonna lie: right after I started playing the first video linked in this, I grabbed a bag of Doritos Nacho Cheese and started watching it.

They fucking got me, guys.

I REFUSE TO DRINK MOUNTAIN DEW, THOUGH!

I'm gonna grab another bag of Doritos now.

*EDIT*

I totally got more Doritos...and there are, like, 100 more bags behind me. Help plox.

I kinda liked the Burger King games. Pocketbike Racers wasn't half bad, and Sneak King was ridiculous enough to be amusing.

#42 Posted by falling_fast (2243 posts) -

why is it spelled "fuled". that is not a word.

#43 Posted by Rapid (1380 posts) -

Fuled Really? Even spelled like that in the app?

Totally stupid, or on purpose....?

I added this to the DB, and yes, I am a terrible person.

I'm not even a fan at all of Halo. But, it's a game, it exists, so on the site it goes.

I apologize for spelling fueled correctly.

EDIT: It seems I may have been going by the logo, which spells it "Fueled".

#46 Edited by Hailinel (25179 posts) -

Sorry, guys. I know I'm usually seen as an anal retentive fuckwad when it comes to the wiki, but I couldn't resist:

I had to put that image of Geoff right where it belongs.

Penny Arcade article made it sound not half bad.

@Hailinel: I can't imagine anyone having a problem with that. Now we need food puns up in this bitch.
