Only a Slight Burning Sensation

   I never wear beanies.  This is probably because I've only ever had one, but I still really don't have any reason to wear one as the winters do not get that cold where I live.  Such being the case, the fact that I preordered Mercs 2 almost solely to get the beanie is somewhat bewildering, though the mag is pretty cool (and shiny!) and the bonus unlockable costume should make the game a bit more interesting, or at least provide some freshness. 

   I say "should" because I forgot about that being part of the package, and when I went to pick it up this morning after waiting 10 minutes for the store to open, I neglected to make sure that the paper w/ the code on it was included.  I later realized the absence of unlock-code-ness and called the store to tell them that I did not get one.  Turns out, they ran out of codes shortly after opening earlier today.  I then mentioned that I was a member of the 7-person group waiting for the noon opening and actually the second to a register.  The manager seemed confused as to why I did not get one, as am I, and I've read on a forum that many retailers completely forget to hand them to those picking up their orders.  Anyway, I'm going back tomorrow to see if he could find one for me. I may just have to get the e-mailed code like everyone who ordered it online.  Why do I want one so bad?  Because Jennifer Mui looks mega-sexy in that black outfit; needless to say I like the poster that comes in the mag.  Although, I'm not sure if that's the one, but if it is, I want it!  

The mighty Tauren
   Oh, and I got the free 10-day WoW trial last week.  I have about 3 days left, and I think I'll get at least a month to continue playing and get my friend a mount and other cool refer-a-friend rewards.  I've got a lvl 12 Tauren Druid on Illidan, so if you're out there, look me up I guess.  The name's Tyrnach.

While typing this, I finished eating some chicken & cheese taquitos that came frozen from the grocery store.  They are pretty good.  As long as something has meat and cheese enclosed in a bread product, it's fine by me.

I got mercs this afternoon and am enjoying it so far. Good luck getting your code, and let me know if you want to play some co-op. Also, taqiutos= awesome, I'm going to go cook some steak ones in the microwave right now!

Sure, we can co-op, but I've got family visiting for the next week, so I won't have any long spans of free time on my 360.  Although I guess I could move it into my room and use a crappy tv.  Yes, I'll do that.

I was a huge fan of the first Mercenaries and was legitamatly sad to see Mercs 2 to get bad reviews so I'm still wondering if I should buy it or not. How do you like it?

It's alright. The game is fun to play, and once you get the right shop items unlocked (Anaconda gunship), blowing stuff up is easy. But there are definitely some annoying aspects as well. Surefire rental, I'd say.
