Burger King Has A 'Black Ninja' Burger In Japan. No, Really.

Dark outfits. Throwing stars. Burgers? When you think of ninja, you probably think of their lore. You don’t think of Burger King. You might now.


Behold A Hamburger Stacked With A Thousand Pieces Of Bacon

Burger King Japan is going bonkers with bacon. For a mere ¥100 (US$1.24), you can, as sister site Gawker pointed out, add 15 slices of bacon to your Whopper. But why stop at 15?


The Most Terrifying Horror Game Of This Generation, Brought To You By Burger King

Silent Hill? Resident Evil? Siren? I used to fear these things, but in 2006 the US Burger King and Blitz Games rendered their scares impotent with the release of Sneak King, a stealth action advergame featuring the creepiest corporate mascot to ever hide in your wife’s closet.


Burger King Generous On Food, Xbox Japan Cheap On Kinects

Burker King’s cheap 360 games a few years back were a surprise success. Now that Kinect is due in stores for the holiday season, the food giant wants to take a second bite of the Xbox market.


There's A Viva Piñata Party In Your BK Kids Meal

Fans of Viva Piñata, charbroiled beef and/or mechanically separated, reshaped chicken meat will want to hoof it on down to their local Burger King and secure themselves a BK Kids Meal. The fast food chain is giving kids their required daily amount of plastic with an octet of brightly coloured toys molded in the form of the cast of Viva Piñata Party Animals, one free with each kid targeted combo.

The best part is that each piñata comes packed with a surprise inside, one that doesn’t require you to smash the thing to bits to recover. Surprises inside include dreidels, kazoos, yo-yos and puzzles. Head on over to the Burger King site or troll the Rare forums to learn more.

Burger King! It’s a wonderful restaurant!

Viva Piñata [Burger King - thanks, Jim!]


Halo 3 Launch Not Competing With Other Games

Nope, Microsoft think Halo 3 has gotten so big Halo 3′s launch will now be competing with movie openings. Microsoft director of creative marketing Chris Di Cesare: Our competition isn’t other videogames. We put it on the plane with other entertainment launches, versus other game launches.

Think they’re bluffing? Not with the amount of cash they’re sinking into this thing. Halo 3 Halo 3 Halo 3. Not only are we gonna get Halo 3 ads up the wahzoo from now until the game launches, and tie-ins like Halo 3 Mountain Dew, we’re also going to see a big deal with GM where Pontiac cars will tour the country shilling the game, and a Halo 3-branded G6 GXP Street will be given away in a competition. And if that’s not enough (it is, but that won’t stop them), Burger King will also be running a Halo 3 meal. Halo 3 Halo 3 Halo 3. Best part? That cola is 42 ounces. Not being one to deal in ounces, I looked that up. It’s 1.2 LITRES. That little part at the bottom of the cup is so your human hand can grip it. Jesus, nobody needs that much cola. Halo 3.
