Now there are Titanfall 5-Hour Energy drinks

Available exclusively at Wal-Mart.

The Titanfall advertising blitz continues. Beginning today you can buy a special-edition Titanfall 5-Hour Energy shots at Wal-Mart. The flavor is berry, in case that's important to you.

The special-edition 5-Hour Energy drinks are available only at Wal-Mart and are said to only be on shelves for a "limited time."

Success in Titanfall comes down to how quick your reflexes are, so a partnership with 5-Hour Energy certainly makes sense, given the drink is marketed as a means to help you focus.

One Titanfall player recently reached the game's level cap after three days and nine hours of play. He would have needed to drink around 16 5-Hour Energy drinks to keep going for that long, but that is most definitely not recommended.

What? Titanfall isn't brotastic whatsoever. I would have never put energy drinks and Titanfall in the same sentence. Yeeaaaaahhhh!!!!!! GOTTA AMP UP FOR TITANFALL!!!!! Maybe go punch a couple of walls, or hopefully your punching bag.

You guys act like you never seen promotional advertisement. All the major companies have done it. Activision, EA, MS, Sony, etc.

This article makes sense.........so long as Gamespot's getting paid for it by EA and Microscam.

Ironically, 5 hour energy drinks are the only energy drinks that don't give me an ulcer.  Very small and the same boost as a Rockstar.  Any smart 5 hour fan would know that Amazon sells them for less than $1.50 each in bulk.

Having trouble keeping focused?  Reaction times slipping?  F'ing GO TO BED!  Titanfall will be there in the morning.

I'm pretty sure gamers who need energy to game are already chugging Mountain Dew and Rockstar Energy Drinks

Just eat healthily, then you won't need this rubbish.

Do you really need this? Isn't what all you need carb? A source of energy which you easily can be in your meals.

Always easy to laugh at the morons who pay $5 for that thing while a cup of coffee cost .25¢

the xboners of the hardcore gaming variety are gonna be needing these energy drinks to keep them from falling asleep playing one of the most boring noob catered fps games ever made.


titan fall is great for people who generally suck at fps games, but for hardcore gamers who want a challenging experience it is gonna be pretty frustrating.

As if we needed more confirmation that this is the new face of broshooters.

Give me Titanfall undies or forget about it. I'm not so much into liquid death.

No, thanks.  I'll take my Titanfall without the myriad of health problems that "energy" drinks cause.

Because Brawnd......Titanfall's got electrolytes. It's what plants crave.

stupid products like this cheapen the game, and diminish the works of the people who made it

Another reason I hate FPSs. They always seem to come with some stupid advertisement tied to an absurdly unhealthy food that will promote unhealthy gaming habits that'll kill you if the food doesn't. I'm waiting for the Titanfall 2-cocaine tie in. That'll keep you up and gaming for a good 200+ hours if you don't die first!

@istreakforfood  I mean it's not like we've had energy drinks based on DBZ characters...oh wait
Well it's not like there was any Nintendo related advertising in the form of an energy dringk...OH WAIT
I don't understand people sometimes, advertising in the form of food or drink has existed for a long time.

@SacredGray Don't know why MS isn't branching out beyond the broshooter/brotastic games. I will give them some time to rectify it, maybe.

Agreed, i try to cut down on my energy drink intake... i feel the wall of my stomach protesting.
Actually my body protests more to energy drink than vodka shots... and i'm pretty sure i'm not the only one with this issue.

@deathstream since when has high fructose corn syrup, sugar, a few thousand empty calories, and death in the bottle ever led to health issues like obesity?!


Seriously though, all I know is that when I cut soda from my diet almost 2 years ago, I had lost 20 lbs 2 months later.... Thank god I started paying attention to labels....

@---Cipher--- Just pour one of these into your Mountain Dew and wash it down with some Nacho Cheese Doritos.

@sanchango @istreakforfood  I mean its not like pointing out other examples of such crappy advertising practices doesn't suddenly makes this one ok as well....oh wait.

@nazgoroth I drink whiskey like a mofo and my body is telling me about it. But damn it, I am not going to die sober!

@---Cipher--- @deathstream  There are plenty of low carb energy drinks without HFCS in them. Not that all that caffeine is good for you. But a lot of them are better than normal sodas.

@endorbr LOL. You got the order backwards, unless that was your intent, so I will laugh even harder.
