A funny thing happened on the Reach Line...

Posted by YukoAsho (2052 posts) -

So I'm sitting there at the Halo: Reach line, surrounded by kids way too fucking young to be at a midnight launch, including this little girl that couldn't have been more than 5 crying for a figurine or something and a bunch of annoying ass football fans who'd been following the San Diego-New York Jets game.  Generally a crap experience.  Then, with about 30 minutes to go, there came a truck with a bunch of people setting up a table with gingerbread cookies, soda and strange panphlets.  Turns out, Ubisoft had set up a little stunt to promote Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and it turned out to be a shining ray of light in the dreariness of the late-night blah.
 
Turns out the little booklet was a series of postcards.  Check it.

Nice, that stuff is always fun when it happens. They were handing out those pamphlets at PAX, but not the postcards. Those're pretty tight.

Those post cards are awesome. But where's the gingerbread cookie and soda? You did what?! That's it, i'm sending you one of these things.

that's pretty original, I must say.   Odd, but original.
