Gears of War 2 Xbox 360

Thursday night I lined up for the Bellevue Midnight Launch party for Gears of War 2. It was fairly rainy all day. My friend got in line around 1900 hrs and took second place in line. I took a little bus detour and ended up arriving around 40 minutes later, no more then half a dozen people when I finally found the place.

Long story short, I think I used up all my unspent luck points that night, I won a Gears of War 2 Xbox 360 in the raffle.

Signed by Joshua Ortega, one of the writers.

Also, each purchase of the LE version of the game came with a remote control tank and a backpack. Among the other swag were head wear, T-shirts, comic, and poster. I also saw gift cards, a Cog Tag, and a GoW Zune given away.

It was well worth the time spent waiting in the not so pretty Washington weather. The Microsoft Game Studios staff were really cool to talk to also. Anyway, Launch events are great.

Edit: I would like to note that the Xbox’s manufacture date is leap day, February 29th, 2008. I think this just makes it extra cool.
