"Yahtzee was pretty angry at the package that EA sent him today, but don't worry - that was the whole point."

Game publishers are known for sending "baskets of goodies" to the more influential game reviewers, in the hopes of getting favorable reviews for their latest game (I am not saying "bribery"). These "goodie bags" can be anything from exclusive prerelease copies of the game to baskets of scented soaps and candles to customized consoles to a weekend at an ultraluxury hotel, all expenses paid, where the most skillful of geisha will rub scented oils into their skin while injecting pure endorphins into their spinal column, with the possible (but by no means compulsory) option of playing the game on the 100'' diamond-encrusted flat screen, but let's not; why spoil the score experience by something as trivial as actually playing the game (I am still not saying "bribery") :angel:

Well, Yahtzee (of Zero Punctuation fame) got a package from EA a few days ago, but it turned out to be... something else.

It seemed pretty obvious that the wooden box addressed to Yahtzee had something to do with Dante's Inferno, given that the inside of the lid read "The Fifth Circle of Hell Is Close." Members of The Escapist staff crowded around the box, eager to find out what was inside. We were somewhat bemused to discover nothing but a small burlap bundle containing safety goggles and a ball peen hammer.

Then the music began, and it all became horrifically clear.

"Never Gonna Give You Up..."

We all got a good chuckle as we realized that EA had just managed to Rickroll Yahtzee through the mail, but our laughter quickly died out when we discovered that closing the box didn't shut off the song. Yahtzee looked at us, then at the box, then at the hammer in his hand.

And then he got to work.

Strapping on the goggles (he is nothing if not conscientious about safety), he set about smashing the box. He had to break through three layers of wood, bones, and insects, but he finally got to the sound box's guts and yanked out one of the batteries. He also found a small scroll that had been tucked into the musical workings, which read:

Go to Hell.


Well, at least it wasn't soap. As someone noticed, "it's not borderline illegal, for a change."
