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.

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.

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

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.)

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.

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.

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".
