Halo vs. Ecko Shirts Go On Sale

Master Chief joins the Still Free Crew, results are kind of bland.

As someone who's been known to wear Ecko clothing from time to time and as someone who liked Halo (well, Halo 3, anyway), you would think that Ecko's limited edition Halo t-shirts would be right up my alley. But surprise! They all look kind of awful and feel like they were designed for people who want others to think they like Halo, as opposed to people who, you know, actually like Halo. It doesn't help that the descriptions are written in some lame kind of attempt at gaming shorthand. Take this one, for example.

Limited Edition Halo tees are a tribute to this legendary video game trilogy. Don't get Pwned! Laser shooting Spartans make up the screenprint design of this Halo tee. 100% cotton. Machine wash. Imported.

Gee, it's a good thing someone threw "Don't get Pwned" into that description. As an avid game enthusiast, I don't feel comfortable spending money with people who can't speak my language. Thanks, Ecko, for "keeping it real" on these shirts. Here's a look at a few of them, but you'll need to go to the Ecko online store if you want to see all six.
