Waste of food and a waste of time? What a fucking stupid pack. I'm glad they didn't care about it and went into that MK video.

Dude weirdest marketing thing with that meat for bulletstorm. Come on, why do you have to stick some dog tags and a usb key in fucking meat. Jeez.

Why do companies waste their marketing money on such stupid stuff? Ugh.

Dry ice & bombcast = fog machine party. Wondering if it's safe for someplace called Giant Bomb to throw away bullet casings, might get the neighbors suspicious. Got to love the surreal marketing stuff from Bulletstorm taking plenty of hints from the Dante's Inferno marketing team.

I'm so glad to see these Mailbag videos back. They're one of my favourite features on this site. :)

I really dont like it when pr sends this kind of things and then asks for favors from the journalists.

Most curse words in a mailbag video? Jeff was rolling them out.  
 
It was an interesting idea for a "gift." I would not have thrown away the bullets and casings though. More mailbag!

He had to dig through raw meat littered with bullet casings, grenade pins and dog tags. Wouldn't you curse too? I know I would. Heh.

That bad raw meat put Jeff in a foul mood he was dropping a lot of F bombs. Though I would be pissed too if someone sent me some spoiled raw meat in the mail.

I really liked MK vs DC, I think that direction for the series was pretty solid. Which is probably why I'm pretty uneasy about the way this trailer looks. It's either gonna be really really good or god damn terrible. 
 
If Ed Boon says its good then I guess I'm all for it. Will he be involved in whatever this is?

When Giant Bomb gets mail, everyone wins. What the fuck @ putting that stuff in meat, though. Seems kind of lame.

I just had a thought watching this video. What if Mortal Kombat 9 went back to digitized live action characters? How far has that technology even advanced?
 
It would be nuts but at the same time, probably pretty horrible.

Wow, Bulletstorm looks pretty good IMO, but that press package was eff'in dumb.
 
"People Can Fly" need to fire their marketing department from what I've seen so far.

That was the craziest (and most disgusting) promotional game package I've seen. I'm with Ryan on the MK video, it's probably for the game, hopefully it brings the series back to its roots.

Agreed, the discussion took on a life of its own within this mailbag video. Hope there's more.

If I was working in the marketing department of Epic/People Can Fly, this is precicesly the sort of thing I would do.  Apart from the whole "vote for best original game" bollocks at the end of the trailer.  Strikes me as unproffessional and groveling.  Then again, I guess anyone with a new IP at E3 this year will be doing the same thing.
 
I'm not too fussed about a new MK, though.  I always liked the totally immature appeal that the MK roster has to it, but I've never enjoyed playing the games.  Hopefully we'll see some gameplay at E3.
