IN GAME ADVERTISING… YES, YOU CAN GO TOO FAR

But… I have to equip it! My PizzaHut™ box shield gives me a +5 agility bonus from its greasiness! Oh, the pizza frying pan weapon? Yeah I just equip that ’cause it looks cool.

    What game is this? Is there seriously in-game advertising?

  4. ArmyOfMidgets on October 19th, 2009 4:47 am

    Shush Shawn, i'm in the middle of my quest for a +10 Spd Chuck E. Cheezes hat.

    So does the slicer heal them or just burn them?

    Our pizzas are made by the finest Foie casters available! Order now, and get 300 meseta off!
    I want a new Phantasy Star game so badly…

    This game will also include Fate/stay night, Evangelion, and Hatsune Miku armor and weapons as downloadable content.

    I mean, let's not take the time to fix whatever problems the first game had. Let's just appease a certain demographic with extra content! <_<

    Every company now wants a slice of the action. While this may be panned by some and seen as cheesy and over the top(pings) the sauce of the problem is money. Users will have to just eat up what's dished out to them.

  9. Xyonas on October 19th, 2009 5:13 am

    How many toppings does it have?
    OVER NINE THOUSAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Nick on October 19th, 2009 6:26 am

    The Code Geass game uses pizza hut boxes as treasure chests for upgrades etc.

  11. Yoshinator on October 19th, 2009 7:03 am

    honestly, i hope this is gonna be better then the first one…
    but this picture doesn't help much…

    I have seen the end. And it has a pizza face.

  13. Ataeru on October 19th, 2009 8:16 am

    Pizza hut, serving monsters a dish of pain for 51 year

  14. Coodoo on October 19th, 2009 11:50 am

    +5 for not being motivational.
    You COULD'VE made this motivational, but you know what? You didn't. You looked 4chan in its hideous disgusting face and spat in it. I'm proud of you.

  15. Sion on October 19th, 2009 12:15 pm

    Thats not cool. By lvl 66 She should be using the Quiznos Armor and subbing it with Palidin/Papa Johns Sheild

  16. Daifuku on October 19th, 2009 1:34 pm

    She shoulda went with the Dominoes set…it gives much better bonuses :/

  17. Badonk on October 19th, 2009 2:30 pm

    Damn crappy fast food pizza places, you need to get yourself some real New york style pizza, you will never go back to pizza hut again, plus it adds +10 strength and +25 intelligence to my already 1337 haxxor skillz

  18. Roflcopter419 on October 19th, 2009 2:38 pm

    What cheesy advertising.

  19. TheAceOfSkulls on October 19th, 2009 3:51 pm

    "How dare you accuse me of selling out! I'm so angry, the only thing that can calm me down is the smooth, refreshing taste of Mountain Dew. Of course, after that I'll need to go get a new pair of boots from JC Penny. Then I can stylishly shop for a new car over at…"

  20. Hungry Consumer on October 19th, 2009 4:16 pm

    What? No pepperoni?

  21. Wonderbread on October 19th, 2009 4:28 pm

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 did it first. Pizza Hut signs and boxes all over that game

  22. KM4N on October 19th, 2009 6:55 pm

    I'd like to cut her cheese amirite?

  23. MasqueNoMercy on October 19th, 2009 3:20 pm

    oh yeah, youre no match for my burger king mask and robe! it gives me extra agility to sneak around behind you… but i can only deliver delicious burgers to you from there… its just like the sneak king game!

  24. MrRaccoon on October 19th, 2009 8:45 pm

    Man, are you going to beat them or to eat them?

  25. Leo058 on October 20th, 2009 1:08 am

    Perhaps it is the Noid who should avoid me.

  26. MageKirby on October 20th, 2009 2:44 am

    lol, must be a korean mmorpg xD

  27. Leo058 on October 19th, 2009 10:48 pm

    Ah, Phantasy Star… I haven't played you in a while.
    Maybe I'll rent the new DS one once it comes out.

    Incidentally, is this a Photoshop or an actual weapon in the game? 'Cause I read stuff about Arm Cannons and Hylian Shields in the DS version.

  28. Ryumaru-MG on October 20th, 2009 2:00 pm

    Oh, look, it's C.C.'s player character…

  29. Sab on October 21st, 2009 8:02 am

    This is Phantasy Star Universe, not Online. And yes, they made some deals with companies. They have done it before (Famitsu, 1-up etc.)
