Fallout 4 is on shelves and Maniac shares an impromptu unboxing he recorded of a GameStop Exclusive Collector’s Item, a Nuka Cola Bottle Opener.

Fallout fans will remember Nuka Cola is the preferred fictional beverage of the Fallout universe, and to promote the release of Fallout 4, Bethesda created some real bottle openers emblazoned with the fictional beverage’s iconic vending machine.

Sadly, we don’t have any bottles of Nuka Cola here, but we have plenty of bottles of Bawls, which long-standing Fallout fans might remember served as the official in-game beverage of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

Fallout 4 is out now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.


Bawls Memories January 29, 2016

Continuing with our ongoing coverage of everything related to the amazingly caffeinated beverage Bawls, Maniac thinks back to his first memories of the beverage, and how it became such an integral part of his life.

Since Bawls were kind enough to send us a case of soda, this can be considered a sponsored video, however Maniac would like to stress he was planning to do this video anyway.  Enjoy!

We Have Bawls January 28, 2016

We’d like to announce that we are setting aside some of our normal programming to announce this website’s very first direct sponsor, Bawls!

We’ve been spreading the word about Bawls on this website for years now. It was pretty ahead of its time, a high caffeinated soda that actually tastes great. It has a cult following amongst PC Gamers, mostly because it would commonly be sold at stores like CompUSA, which is where I first got my hands on some.

So, lo and behold, the makers of Bawls got wind of our support and sent us a case of Bawls!  Take a look!

This is the weekend of X Games Aspen 2016 and I can’t think of anything I’d rather drink during this year’s Halo 5 tournament. Thank you again to Bawls and all of you for your support.  More Bawls content will be coming this week, at least until the Bawls run out!

Pokemon: 20 Years – Super Bowl 2016 Commercial January 25, 2016

Nintendo has just revealed the commercial they plan to air during this year’s Super Bowl. It celebrates twenty years of the beloved Pokémon franchise, and perfectly embodies the spirit of the game, its players, and its enduring legacy. After having seen it, all I have to say is…I am speechless.

In the US, the vast majority of memorable commercials that air during the Super Bowl are produced by companies that sell alcoholic products. Nintendo is poised to defeat them. I don’t think any company will be able to best this commercial.

I defy ANY marketer who may air a commercial during this year’s Super Bowl to produce a better commercial than this one. I honestly don’t think it can be done.  The bar has been set very very high.

Marketers, if you haven’t seen this masterpiece on video, you can watch it below.

Following up on our successful Let’s Play series this weekend, Maniac decides to take a step back from the PS4 and stream an Xbox One game.

When you think about Xbox exclusive games, you think about Halo, and what better Xbox One exclusive game to show off than Halo 5: Guardians?  We’ll be playing the first two levels from the game. Along the way, Maniac will not only talk about how the game holds up in comparison to other Halo titles, he will help a commenter fix his controller, give his gripes about the difficulty in finding Halo 5-branded Axe gift packs, and speculate about the story for Halo 6 and Halo 7!

Halo 5: Guardians is out now exclusively for Xbox One.
