after 20 hours trying to get the space Mass Effect 2
(mass effect 3) nobody got anything. First package was determined unreachable. a tractor couldn't do it. A 3 hour hike and then 3 hour crawl through thorny, muddy bramble if you have a machete and a crew. then its up a tree. Last night two people got lost looking for it and had to be rescued.
Today we found the other one though. It was just off a beaten path in tree. It wasn't in a tree too high... it was just out of reach. 3 people climbed that tree. One person spent 4 hours up there with sling shots base balls fishing poles... we inevitably broke one of the branches on which it was tangled, and everything fell but the goddamn games.
The game company was there to help use get it down, and they could barely help at all. IGN was there covering it, but we couldn't do it. Youd have to chop that thing down. Allegedly the launch in vegas today was also something o a failure.
Overall a very exhausting and physically painful experience... adventurous. but methinks Electronic Arts or BioWare should really get going on some damage control for some of the people who really broke there backs out there the last two days. I was wading wastte deep in thorns with a machete and a baseball bat... totalled a pair of shoes.... the guy in the tree i think got fired from his job. oh dear.... eventually the property owner kicked us all out.
well there are twenty copies of mass effect north of santa cruz if your a damned super hero.... or ten if your an arborist.
