I stumbled across this a few minutes ago and thought I’d share it with others. Unfortunately, as of yet I’ve not got myself a proper games blog (but it is in the pipeline), so I’m posting it here. Anyway, although the title says that there’s a free Sackboy on offer, unfortunately they’re now all gone, much to my disappointment as I’d have liked my own one! Instead, there’s a free Sackboy t-shirt on offer instead, provided you follow the requirements on the site. Do keep in mind though that it’s only available to UK and Ireland residents, so anyone reading this not from any of the covered areas unfortunately cannot take part in this.
Anyway, here’s a pic of one of the 5000 Sackboys sent out (courtesy of a bloke named Josh who posted the pic on the comments page):
No wonder Stephen Fry went “Aww, bless!”
They’re selling one on eBay for 50 quid, but honestly, as much as I’d want one, I’d not pay that much! I do agree with many of the commenters saying that they’re very well made. I hope they’re gonna bring out one people can buy eventually, as I would most certainy get one! Anyway, here’s hoping that I get my t-shirt.
And before I forget, there’s a new LBP DLC coming out which features stuff from Shadow of The Colossus, arguably the most gorgeous-looking (certainly the most rare!) game for PS2. I happen to have a copy and shelled out 20 quid (Euros, I think) for it a few years ago now. I’ve not properly played it (though I should soon!), but as a gamer, there’s a certain pride in owning the game. Also, I signed myself up to ScrewAttack, at long last, so I’ll most likely be commenting on there. There’s a blog on there, like there is with GameTrailers, but I dunno if I’ll be posting to it… I might just use it as a mirror blog for the main one I’ve planned, to get larger community coverage… I’ll think of something!
