    By now the balloon-distributed copies of the eagerly awaited finale to the Mass Effect saga have begun their gentle descent to Earth, and below them are mobs of young gamers leaping to be the first to lead their crew of aliens in saving the galaxy.

    Unfortunately, nobody planned for the eventuality that the weather balloons and payload would become stuck 150' (~50m) up in a tree.
    Three enterprising youngsters have already fallen to their deaths in vain attempts to climb the old growth affectionately referred to as "The Treeper".
    We interviewed one of the bystanders at the scene as the bodies of his companions were being carried away.

    "Just leave him there so we have something to stand on. That gets us nearly a foot closer, already."
    Some of the gamers have banded together, scrounging their allowances and lunch money to hire a tree surgeon to climb up and retrieve the game. Currently leading the race toward the $1000 needed to hire such an expert is one of the few female gamers in attendance, who has offered to flash or fondle any of the bystanders that will provide funding to her.

    At another location, two teens have been shot dead when trespassing upon a neighbor's land in an attempt to get their space game. The old hermit shouted from his porch that "Dem kids wuz tryin' ta steal that there UFO what crashed on mah prop'ty!" before promptly holing himself and the game up in his cabin. The FBI is currently trying to negotiate with the man. When contacted for comment, Bioware said:
    "This is oddly quite close to what we expected, apart from the shotgun."

    Stay tuned for continual updates on Mass Effect Tree.

    This is a work of satire, and though the images are actual gamers huddled beneath an actual copy of Mass Effect 3, none of the rest should be taken seriously.

    I forgot
    I wish I were there, I'd get the game and then smash it in front of everyone there.

    EDIT: Although if the bitch offering to fondle people is hot I'd probably have her fondle me first...then I'll smash it. Cuz hey, free handjob/blowjob.

    Now I can't believe it, shit really falls from the sky, but now with DRM!

    I wonder how they'll decided who keeps the game?
    Either someone will quickly steal it from the person that first grabbed it and then dash to their car/bike and get the hell away from the angry crowd, or if they'll just do a survival of the fittest. =3

    Real life multiplayer matches of course.
    Person with most kills wins the game!
    And since its real life, a free assortment of various law keeping forces chasing his or her ass!
    And just like online mulltiplayer matches, there will be cussing all around along with various campers!

    I don't care for Mass Effect 3 but I might join in on that just for that gamer girl that fondles everyone.
