With Project Venom, Razer posited the idea of a branded energy drink. Sure, it was over-the-top silly but there was also a grain of truth to it. A mystery box arrived at my door earlier this month and inside was a plentiful selection of Razer RESPAWN Performance Drink Mix, a drink designed to raise mental acuity and focus over long gaming sessions without the drawbacks of normal energy drinks. Does it work? Let’s find out.

    Just looks like Razer saw how much Gfuel people were buying and wanted that market too.

    maybe they shoulda added chroma RGB to the box/coasters/the shaker so they can justify the price they will sell this at !

    Anyone who buys this should be ashamed of themselves.

    The best thing for hydration when sitting in front of the computer screen for hours is water period, imagine that.

    You are not exercising and sweating like crazy so no need for electrolyte and mineral replacement.

    Also caffeine is a big no IMO, you dont need it, your body can function perfectly fine without caffeine- many people are addicted to it sadly and think they need it to function- which is not true.

    You don't need energy drinks, and you certainly don't need this gimmicky razor drink bullshit either. Get more rest and more exercise and you will naturally get more energy during the day.

    Let's be honest.. most of us gamers need something to suck the energy out of us, not put more in.

    So it was designed by gamers, not someone with an actual food science, bio-science or medical degree? The ability to mix hot Cheetos and ruby-red Mountain Dew into a viscous slurry while you pound 1,1,1,1 over and over again makes you an expert on food development? Not really a selling point. Yeah no thx. :D

    Maybe someone needs to make a Gamer treadmill.


    edit- I guess someone already has



     I doubt it will ever catch on since as soon as you get on it and walk it automatically unequips your gamer ass.

    I have been drinking energy drinks a very long time,often scoffed at by others.I have done a ton of research on them because well without getting into all of my health issues,i had to do the research for my own safety.
    A test recently with half the test subjects being avid energy drinkers and the other half never using them.
    Not surprising the avid users test results showed very little to no change,the assumption was their bodies had become immune to the drinks or partially immune.The other half had quite noticeable differences in the results.

    Personally i can attest to the immunity part is real.I still remember like it was yesterday the very first drink i had was a grape Nos.I really noticed the effect it had,well years later and often drinking as many as 4 or even 5/6 in a day,i barely notice anything at all.

    Point being,this guy says he is an avid energy drink user but is quick to say this stuff works seems very sketchy.The main ingredient is NOT Taurine,it is the caffeine and unless drinking sugar free like i do then the sugar is also there as well the main culprit for feeling like crap afterwards.

    As has been said for years,moderation is key.I feel personally having been through all the Nos/Redbull/Monster right now drinks,both sugar and sugar free,this 95 caffeine drink would not do much at all,specially for an avid energy drink user.

    FYI,i take blood pressure Medicine...Atenolol and recently had an UPGRADE in my health after everyone scoffed at me for drinking so many Energy drinks.

    Want to know the real killer and worst enemy>>>>SUGAR,stay away from it as much as possible.I drink sugar free,low salt Monster,it does work to bring back my energy level,but the effects now a days are much less.
    To me this drink looks like a CHEAP drink,not in the same class as the popular brands.If you feel you need to cut down on caffeine,it is likely because of other stuff you are doing that is in combination causing problems,like some medicines or smoking.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Maybe getting rid of the caffeine addiction first would give more energy and then any drink will do the same as this..

    Energy drinks branded and targeted at people who spend the least amount of energy on the planet. GG EZ.

    I play CS:GO, not so much these days but i can attest that my in game performance was better in the hour or so after i had been to the gym, reaction times etc. definitely seem to improve after exercising. Energy drinks are imo more likely to slow you down, particularly ones that are heavily laced with glucose/sugars etc. :)

    If you want an energy drink without the useless additives that are used for mental queues (taurine), absurd sugar amounts, or the caffeine...  Just take Airborne (or any don't get sick/anti-flu supplement), you can even compare the backs of the two at a grocery store if you don't believe me.

    Then if you need the caffeine brew it yourself from tea/coffee.  And if you're a barbarian that needs sugar you can add it to your tea.
    ___ 
    Also worth mentioning that those extra additives like taurine are unique to them because no one else is stupid enough to use the gross places the come from.   For instance taurine comes from cow stomach bile (stomach and digestive juice extracts).  Energy drinks just need something unique with a strong smell, to form a strong mental trigger to your soon to be had surgar rush.  

    Practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent.
