"Scissor Lifts Are Always Oscar Mike"

A little holiday cheer from some dudes we know.

From the mailbag...

Hey fellas,

Ben and I were sporting the Oscar Mikes around 38 Studios today explaining to everybody how awesome we were for getting all 69 stars in Spec Ops. When posing for the attached e-card/"celebrity" endorsement, we felt the scissor lift was a more appropriate holiday symbol for the background than say, a christmas tree.  Scissor lifts are always Oscar Mike. Let's see a tree take down 10 juggernauts in Favela!

Happy Holidays!

Rich and Ben


Thanks go out to Ben and Rich for sending in this impressive Christmas card. Yes, this means that those Oscar Mike shirts are currently in the process of shipping, and some of you may have even received your shirt already. If you haven't ordered yours yet (and you or someone you love wears a size small), there's still time to get in on this limited engagement, but once they're gone... they're gone. No reprints, no reissue! Limited! Edition!
 
Also, I think this confirms the rumor that 38 Studios is working on a massively multiplayer scissor lift simulator. Jeff Gerstmann on Google+

Mine just came today. Awesome work, gents.

Posted by TheGreatGuero

Awesome. I can't wait to get mine. I just hope it fits.

Shirts look ugly. Rich is cool. To take down 10 juggernauts in Favela there's a trick and you can knife them to death.

Posted by Dynamitekyle

That's fantastic. xD
 
 
 
 
PS. My shirt hasn't came in the mail yet, and I chose Priority Shipping on the day they were released. I'm getting kinda worried.

Yes, I'm still totally sore about not being able to order an Oscar Mike shirt.  =  (  Screw getting paid on Mondays and having no money by the time awesomeness is announced...

"Is there a tree?" "No, instead, there's a scissor lift. It requires no decoration. I find tinsel distracting."

For some reason, Ben and Richs pose remind me of GMod...

This site needs more Rich Gallup.

Ok, now it feels like Christmas.

The term "Oscar Mike" has now passed the accepted repetition levels for this online junction. So it would be best if you ceased using the term to try and evoke humor. And on a different but no unrelated topic, I  very strongly disapprove of Giant Bomb not shipping to Canada. Shame on you.

Posted by MetalGearSunny

That is awesome!

Small? Dammit I'm too fat for that...

Posted by fillmoejoe

Damn should've ordered a shirt.

Posted by CletusTheFoetus

dammit! I guess i need to buy a small one and loose 30lbs in order to wear it!
 
who am I kidding? This is winter bulk! 
 
A shame I missed it :(

Posted by Hamz

38 Studios new game clearly will be titled "Oscar Mike".....it has to be.

Posted by MeatSim

I regret not ordering one of those shirts while they were still in my size.

Posted by Metroid545
