It has been no secret to most long term visitors to this site we are super fans of Bawls high-caffeinated soda. It has been a staple of LAN parties everywhere for nearly two decades. Earlier this year, the company announced a new flavor was being added to their soda lineup, Cherry Cola.

Bawls was nice enough to provide us a case of their soda for this review. What do you say we try it? Just be aware we are going to say Bawls a lot…

Stay tuned we might be doing more game streaming this week with our supply of Bawls at our side!

We were able to secure ourselves a regular copy of the retail edition of Death Stranding at a midnight release from our local GameStop. Let’s see what’s in the box, shall we?

Just want to give a heads up that there is a Day 1 patch for this game. Make sure to get it before you start playing. Save games prior to the patch are not compatible with the post patched game.

Death Stranding is out now on PS4. Its coming to PC in 2020.

Last week, we continued our blind playthrough of Control on the PS4. In this video which we regret we did not publish here sooner we work with the Janitor to clean up The Oldest House’s maintenance sector. Beware the clog!

Weeks earlier, Rockstar Energy Drink announced a promotion where they would offer exclusive Gears 5 downloadable content in specially marked cans of Rockstar Energy Drink. A few weeks ago, we reviewed one of the very few cans we could find on sale. After several weeks of searching, we finally found ANOTHER specially marked can of Rockstar Energy Drink, this time in a can of Energy Punch, a flavor we have never tried.

So here’s our fist ever taste of Rockstar Energy Punch. Has the search been worth it?

Gears 5 is out now for PC and Xbox One.

Maniac has been a fan of Remedy Games since the original Max Payne was released on the PC. Now, we have the pleasure to play their newest game, Control, on the PS4. Here’s the first two and a half hours of the game!

We’ll be playing blind but we have tons of experience with other third-person games so we are not going in without any controller experience. All gameplay is provided with picture-in-picture video commentary.

If you’re interested in seeing more of the game we will be streaming more of it tomorrow on our Twitch channel!

Control is out now for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Ring Fit Adventure Unboxing October 28, 2019

Ring Fit Adventure is an interesting concept for a game. Part RPG, part exercise equipment. Due to its included peripherals, it has a $20 increased price over other new Nintendo Switch games. Due to that price premium we thought it would be a good idea to show what was included in the game’s box.

Ring Fit Adventure is out now exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.

Shortly after announcing their intention to re-release countless classic 8-Bit NES games as part of their premium Nintendo Network service, Nintendo offered their subscribers the chance to buy exclusive wireless NES controllers to play those games on. Well, ours arrived.

We’ve played these NES games on their original platform what do you say we crack these things open and give our initial thoughts about them?

You must have an active paid Nintendo Network online account to be eligible to purchase these controllers. They are only compatible with the Nintendo Switch’s NES game launcher.

Sit back and relax because Maniac is going to do something different for today’s episode of Maniac’s Kitchen. He’s going to tell a story of the first time he had Japanese food and what a unique experience it was. We didn’t have sushi. We didn’t have hibachi. This…was something else.

Please post a comment below if you know the name of what kind of dining experience this was or what you thought of this video!

Maniac’s Kitchen – Rockstar Energy Drink Gears 5 Promotion Taste Test September 29, 2019

Earlier this month, we reported that Rockstar Energy Drink was partnering with Microsoft to offer free codes for exclusive Gears 5 downloadable content (DLC) to players who purchase specially marked cans of the beverage. However, in the time since we wrote that bit of news it has been next to impossible for us to find those marked cans of the beverage in any of our local shops or retail stores.

Eventually, we were able to find ONE flavor of Rockstar Energy Drink that had the Gears 5 marking in our area, this one is called the Pure Zero flavor (due to the fact it advertises it has 0 calories). We never tried REG before, so we decided to give it a taste test on camera to see how well it stacks up against other beverages.

Gears 5 is out now for Xbox One and PC.

Welcome back to Maniac’s Kitchen where we share recipes and review all kinds of gaming food. It’s not my birthday but I couldn’t resist checking out Cold Stone Creamery, the ice cream shop known for mixing a whole assortment of toppings into their creamy ice cream.

In conjunction with Nintendo to promote the recent release of Super Mario Maker 2, Cold Stone has released two limited-time menu options. Today, we’re going to review the Rainbow Sprinkle Road Cake, which is clearly inspired by Nintendo’s Mario Kart franchise. Let’s see how it tastes!

Cold Stone says they will personalize your cake with any name you wish when you order it. We chose to get the smallest version of the cake since nobody but me seemed interested in eating it. If you need a bigger cake for a large party, larger round cakes can be made.
