Before your next LAN or all-night raid, you'd better be prepared.

But.. But I love Mountain Dew! Ew..

Also, was it just me or was this shorter than most of the other ENN episodes? Still really funny though.

It may just be me, but I got the biggest chuckle out of the Heiniken wraparound ad on the video - given that Heiniken is pretty much the Mountain Dew of beers. If only the suit could up the ABV of the end product!

Terranca Vandertramp is a Canucks fan. That means I hate him. Guess why.

I wonder what other ENN predictions will come true. Could that Natal... mascot... thing... actually be involved in a scandalous scandal soon?

It's basically Valve's answer to Duke Nukem Forever.

Half Life 2: Episode 3.

It's been sort of announced, but you know how episodic games work? Like a 3 month development cycle? This has meant to be in development about 3 years. And also, we have NO screenshots or Footage to go by. In fact, all we DO have that hasn't been debunked, is this piece of concept art.


It's now a joke. Turning into the next DNF, but only because we have no details whatsoever. When we do, the joke ends.

Calumon: Meanwhile, Duke Nuke'em... Erm... Duke Nukem Forever is apparently being made by Gearbox now.

Jack: Gamedogs fail! But the jokes were good.

OT: Awesome video, and great stab at episode 3.

Calumon: They said the word gamer alot. Yahtzee won't be pleased.

'Aww man it's still urine.'

Who on earth would sign up for tasting their own piss?

An important note: US Mountain Dew and Canadian Mountain Dew are significantly different due to Canadian caffeine laws. Particularly, Canadian Mt. Dew isn't allowed to have any. That's why you always hear more "Mt. Dew tastes like piss" comments from up here: because up here, it does.

"what am I thinking right now?"
"That we're psychics!"
"Thats right! We are totally psychics!"

Great ending, also loved the star warsing your way through MGS: Rising.

I live in Australia and have never actually drunk Mountain Dew. They might stock it here somewhere I've just never seen it. Is it really that bad?

"Ugh why is that Mountain Dew so salty?"
I couldn't stop laughing xD. I had to pause the video because I just couldn't hear anything over my laugh!

Great ENN guys. And I don't know why you didn't use the "he'll live" (terminator 2) line when talking about Metal Gear: Rising. Too obvious? I used it when I talked to my friend about it xP.

PS. Am I the only one who thought of Lee from "Still Gaming" (show done entirely with stills)
"Whoa! It's 3D Lee!"

Great episode. Loved the Stillsuit for gaming idea, and the psychic. If I had a dollar for every gaming idea that's come true years after I came up with it, I'd have a least 5 dollars right now.

Wait... are you two people using one account? Or one person acting like two for a laugh?

(I've always wanted to ask, and this seemed as good an opportunity as any.)

Three things:

1) Why did they have to bring up the pain my heart fells when thinking of Fable 3's Chicken?

B) That doesn't make you psychic, it just means cynicism is defeated by reality once again. And we must now become even more cynical until reality meets that level of disbelief etc...

III) There is no third thing, but lists really work better as a set of three.

I like Mountain Dew! And I've been making jokes about it tasting like piss for years! (Everyone has, I know) Yet I still drink it, for some reason...

Also, Urge To Kill : Rising? I may have to get the game, just because they made that joke.

I'll wait for version 2.0 of the suit that turns urine into Diet Mt. Dew.

Come to think of it, do they still make Mello Yello?

Which makes no sense, because all the other sodas here have caffeine. How much caffeine could they possibly be adding that they have to remove it to sell it here? Why not just put less in it.

Aw, ninja'd.

Though I will note that Canadian Smirnoff Ice is actually made with vodka here (7%) and is pretty good as a result, unlike that malt liquor "cheerleader beer" (5.5%) you poor Americans are stuck with. When I used to hit cons in the US, we'd regularly trade Canadian Smirnoff Ice for American Mountain Dew. Then we tried mixing them to favourable results.

No! BAD eNN! It's not called "gaming" anymore, it's called...

...

...so yeah, funny episode. I hate to say it, but I'm kinda psyched at Metal Gear Solid: Rising. But it might change. Also, damn you for making me remember that I want episode 3 so badly. :mad:

Keep in mind that's "Never" in Valve time. That means it will be so late it will come out sometime because it was too late to be never, but since time is a bit weird like that we wont see this, we will simply see the game as coming out far too late.

But that's "far too late" in Valve time as well, so perhaps never is more precise.

I doubt it, there was a video where she was leaning forward and wearing a low cut top....

Comments were made... by me as well, and I'm still here, although I didn't say anything too crass and made sure to make it clear I was joking.

Kathleen is one of the funniest people on this site, let alone ENN.

Graham Stark, though. Smokin' :p
