Mountain Dew will provide more than just fuel for late-night Reach sessions

Mountain Dew has revealed its plan to supply gamers with more than a caffeine high for popping strangers off via headshots come September.

The popular soft drink will join up with Microsoft and Doritos to celebrate the launch of Halo: Reach . Starting on September fifth, gamers will have the chance to partake in a promotion to win exclusive Xbox 360 and Dew prizes.

It isn't entirely clear if they will be won via codes under bottle caps or if it will be similar to downloadable (DLC) content offered by Dr. Pepper for Mass Effect 2 and other EA published titles.

In years past Mountain Dew has offered some nifty prizes for collecting points from caps, and it would be nice to see some exclusive Reach swag. Something akin to exclusive DLC helmets or armor wouldn't be a bad reason to pick up a Mountain Dew, either.

A new type of Game Fuel, or even the same Game Fuel released to promote Halo 3 and World of Warcraft, would have been even more welcome. It's probably for the best that I don't get sucked into marketing and not rot my insides with death milk...err, soda.

For now keep your eyes peeled for Dew and Doritos packaging branded with spartans.

Gaming has just always been something I've loved since I was a wee lad. Ever since I picked up that NES controller and played Super Mario Bros...much like any gamer, really!

Video games were actually the impetus for me going to college and earning a journalism degree. If not for EGM, Nintendo Power, OPM, Expert Gamer, GameNow and countless other magazines I don't know what I would have done after high school! I'd like to think professional footballer for Liverpool...well, a man can dream can't he?!?!

Right now I'm replaying Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2. I keep up with all the big-time releases, (Marios, Halos, etc.) but I'm also always trying to whither down my pile of shame.

I game on all systems. PC is my least played platform, but five years ago I've finally started to play classics after finally buying a home computer. I've now enjoyed games like Half-Life and others I had only read about before having a mouse and keyboard controlled gaming rig.

Some favorite games of mine: Metal Gear Solid series, almost anything Mario, Halo, Xenogears, Fallout series, Final Fantasy Tactics, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Suikoden 1 and 2...Well, pretty much any good game from any genre except for sports released from the NES era and on. Then it is only Mario sport titles and Winning Eleven and FIFA.

Sad fact about me: I'm desperately (perhaps hopelessly) waiting for a new Shadow Hearts game. :(

Update: It's September in Minnesota (getting chilly), and I'm enjoying Borderlands 2.
