Stiq Figures, July 16 - 22: Pepsiman edition


Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Every week, we take a look at, uh, something – meanwhile, the previous week's Japanese hardware sales figures are posted after the jump, and a discussion of said figures takes place in our comments. It may not be conventional, but it's a time-honored Joystiq tradition.

It's "hilariously terrible gameplay video week" on this week's Stiq Figures. While some folks find product placement offensive, Pepsiman would tell those people, "Relax, and drink this Pepsi I just picked up while running through the neighborhood."

Released in Japan in 1999 for PlayStation, Pepsiman is an "on-rails running game" featuring the soft drink company's former mascot. Check out the gameplay video above while quietly drinking a two-liter bottle of Pepsi. Caffeine is a hell of a drug, friends.
