I don't know who Jun S-266 is, but I feel bad for him. After all, he does carry the big gun, right? Let's put some sugar in that barrel.

Jun is the sniper, Jorge is the big Spartan-II with the machine gun.

Commander Breetai:
Actually, I think the better question is: "Does the world need Mountain Dew?"

Does the world need humans? Does it need anything? On a universal scale, is need even possible? Because my needs contradict with the needs of others, negating both. Essentially, everything we do is pointless, and the only thing we should bother with is personal gain.

Naturally, everyone can't be living like that at the same time, things would collapse. So some of us become workaholics, others, slackers, with most falling in the middle. For these people, Mountain Dew or similar products provide relief, they give us the right amount of pleasure, in combination with other entertaintainment. They allow us to carry on our day, and thus further the species. If the world can need anything, it needs Mountain Dew. Even if it tastes like piss.

The original Mountain Dew, Code Red, and Voltage are all absolutely delicious to me. They're all spectacular flavors and I love them. I cycle between the three regularly. Livewire is also pretty good, but I never liked it as much as the other three.

I found Whiteout to be quite odd though, it tastes good to me at first but then I get really sick of it about halfway through the bottle. I liked the other two flavors in the vote better. Typhoon was your standard berry/tropical flavor, it tasted good but it wasn't really anything special. I originally expected Distortion to be gross, but it was actually okay, pretty much just tasted like regular Mountain Dew with a little limey tang to it. All in all though, none of the three stood out to me, I wouldn't regularly consume any of them.

Well, yeah. Machine guns are nice and all, but there are redwoods that are smaller than Halo's sniper rifle.

I was just trying to inform you on which character we were talking about. Yes the sniper rifle has a long barrel and is big I just thought you meant THE BIG GUN which is usually used to refer to Jorge so I thought you had confused them.

They ought to make a Pitch Black 3, then put out 12 packs that include the Pitch Black Collection. Sell it like a movie pack or something. Call it the world's first high definition soda. In 3D.

Meh, don't care that much for Mountain Dew.

Dr. Pepper however, now thats a drink.

this post is to make the above post show.

Greg Tito, you are now officially my favorite Escapist Staff member. Sorry, Susan and Russ, you two get bumped down a notch.

I think the real question is "Is the world ready for Halo:Reach-themed Mountain Dew?"

And the answer is a definite maybe.

....but why the hell haven't I gotten any! Come on, Pepsi! I've been slowly killing myself with your products since I was little!

To answer the title question: No. The last thing that spoiled, Super-Saiyan-Sedentary, pre-teens need is even more sugar and caffeine. :P

Kat-Mountain Dew sounds like it fits here quite well to me. I'm just curious, did the cap leak or come off a little easier?[1]

Carter makes sense I suppose, he was a more run-of-the-mill space marine leader. Sure, he may not have been the most exciting Spartan, but you don't even give him a special flavor or at least a color? I just cannot picture a squad of sodas being led by a regular Mountain Dew; I think of those as more of the fodder.

For Jun, I was thinking something minty and fresh like an evergreen. Maybe even something sort of outdoorsy. Or maybe Beef Jerky flavored. Yeah. Why not.
At least the color matches. Maybe it says something about him hiding and sneaking as a sniper: He's really just scared and insecure with himself and is now on a diet. Maybe he can flip over a tank, maybe he can break an elite's neck. But maybe that diet soda is the only thing holding back the tears... Or maybe Mountain Dew was running out of ideas

I'm surprised Emile's wasn't overpoweringly sour with an acidic aftertaste that makes you spit curses while making everyone as miserable as you now that you've had that first sip. To better fit his personality, they could always make an Emile-Tequila = Put a sharp object in every bottle!

I don't drink soda, but "Fanta" sounds right for Jorge. But shouldn't Jorge-Mountain Dew come with like an extra 30% or at least a funnel? Oh! Or an extra "belt" of caffeine.

[1] That's right, I went there

YAY new colors and flavors of Slurm Mt Dew! Too bad I am not a huge fan of it, but is sounds like they are having fun. I will have to try white if it comes out and my Mt dew friends get it.

Now if only we had soda that was TF2 based....wait coke is red and pepsi is blue...

Jun is a Sniper. So He stays in the back and snipes the enemy. His sniper rifle is really long

Greg Tito:

Name: Jun S-266
Rank: Warrant Officer
Armor Color: Blue
Mountain Dew Flavor: Diet Mountain Dew

While I was at first disappointed with the fact that the smallest guy on the Noble Team was relegated into Diet status, Susan Arendt rightly pointed out that he's a sniper and didn't need to consume as many calories as the rest of the team. I can't argue with that logic.

Grade: B-

His armor is not Blue its fucking Green

I can already start to imaginate the Sauron Cereal, the Indiana Jones Redbull the Chewbacca Mountain Dew...

Shane McGinnis:
PLEASE I NEED THAT NOBLE SIX WHITE OUT!!! I save and collect Mountain Dew stuff physical and virtual. When Mountain Dew shows a commercial, or small video to us and then removes it later when the promotion is over, I get the .flv file of that video or the pictures they show and save it to my Mountain Dew folder. I also collect all Mountain Dew stuff, anything branded with Mountain Dew I save. I drink it daily, just like water. IT IS ALWAYS MY DRINK OF CHOICE. I back Mountain Dew up anytime someone disses it, I am a die hard fan and will do /anything/ for that white out. Please if you didn't give it away yet, PLEASE send it to me, or add me to the list of people to possibly win it. PLEASSSSSSEEEE!

....

I don't know if this a joke or something...

I've got the NOM jealousy... It's hurting my soul :'(

The world doesnt need any more Halo themed anything.

Whiskey Echo!!
mythgraven

I thought White Out was part of the last Dewmocracy...

As a Dew fanatic, I am deeply jealous right now. Not because of the Halo: Reach themed pack, but because Code Red is so hard to find where I live. B+ rassafrakking...

TheSkaAssassin:
First off

Cliff_m85:
I got the "Offical HALO Experience" version of Mountain Dew.

It comes with four different flavors and a seven year old obese American child who calls you a "N*gger" every twenty-three seconds.

I lol'd very hard. Thank you for that sir.

2. Wasn't White Out a part of the flavor voting thing this year? I could have sworn it was.

You are correct. I know I have had White out before. It was a whitish-grey colored can with light blue as the secondary color.

-------
Just for kicks, I would like to collect every style of bottle, but my university drink vendors only stock regular and diet.

This article was helpful, cause I was wondering if there were other bottles with the other team members, since I have only been buying regular Dew in between my classes.

I guess I will have to take a look when I go to restock my apartment with groceries tomorrow.

I would say it is serious.
Or maybe he works for Mountain Dew, paid spokesperson.

I'm not that fanatical about Mountain Dew, but I would like to collect one of each type of bottle.

I have Kat, Jun, and Carter. I can't seem to find Jorge or Emile, though im not to enthsiastic about drinking livewire for jorge (i fucking hate livewire). Voltage is still my favorite of all of them and i only tried typhoon and distortion this dewmocracy year, i didnt like typhoon, and i thought that distortion tasted the EXACT SAME as regular dew.......

Last years dewmocracy was better, i still wish that we could have kept voltage and supernova, i loved both but i liked voltage more and it is still my favorite of all the dews.

Voltage FTW!!!!

Irridium:

Yes! This, just this.

EDIT: sorry for double post.

Irridium:

I drink both, well, I'll drink just about any soda, it can depends on my mood.

Though I have found some I don't like, well, I don't like now that they have changed.

7up and Sierra Mist. Ever since they went all natural, they taste like crap. The interesting thing is mist is the German word for manure.

Greg Tito:

"We've also included the newest member of our Mountain Dew family: Mountain Dew White Out. You won't find this edition of White Out in stores. It's not for sale and you can't buy it. We're giving it only to true Mountain Dew fans."

Back in April my college had 3 unique Mountain Dew flavors for a new Dew contest for the next flavor to be made. I tried all three and White out was one of them. In my opinion White Out was the worst of them all I hated the aftertaste it gave. The other two were good though I loved the orange one which I cannot remember the name of for the life of me right now.

*EDIT*

sabercrusader:

Thank you for also knowing about those three flavors lol. I personally liked Typhoon best of the three but they all weren't very good anyway in my opinion. And Distortion I believe was supposed to taste exactly the same except it had a slightly more tangy flavor with a horrendous aftertaste worst than Whiteout.

Code red has always been cherry. I've liked almost every flavor they made, except Distortion. Voltage, White Out, and Code Red are my favorites.

Ironic Pirate:
Even if it tastes like piss.

Now the real question here is, how do you know what piss tastes like?

made me lol.

A good question, and the answer is no. Man-up you nancy's, coffee's where it's at.

I'd go so far as to say, "That's Overkill" before I remembered the obvious pun.

Commander Breetai:
Actually, I think the better question is: "Does the world need Mountain Dew?"

well, to be fair, the world doesn't really have Mountain Dew, the stuff doesn't really sell that well outside of America.

My answer to the proposed question: No. No it does not.
However, one thing I still live in hope for is that Coca-Cola does a similar thing for the next instalment in the Fallout series:Nuka Cola Quantum & Nuka Cola Clear- two drinks that I would risk becoming a "true fan of Coke" to get.

Greg, I would fucking kill to have your job right now. Freebies from PepsiCo? Getting paid to write? I envy you your awesome life (and great hair.)

No, Halo doesn't need it's own drinks... but it got them anyway. For some reason.
