Weird stuff

Exactly one week left now until I start moving.

I was going through one of my closets and found this:

It’s funny the stuff game companies send out to promote their games. It’s not always just a review copy of the game. Sometimes it’s over-the-top and useless (albeit kinda cool) junk like this. This die cast Le Mans came from Atari a couple of years ago, and it’s not little either. The box it’s in is about the size of a shoebox. Most of the time I give this stuff away to friends or whatever. Like the Viva Pinata review kit, which came in a little wooden crate with all the press materials and an actual pinata.

Makes you wonder if they think it will get them a better review, or if they just do it because its fun and nifty.
