Buried Treasure: Uncharted 2’S ‘Fortune Hunter’ Edition
Not to go all shameless self-promotion on ya’ll, but if you happen to read Geekadelphia (another site I write for) you know that I have an unhealthy crush on Nathan Fillion – A.K.A. Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly. Said crush carries over to any Nathan Fillion approximations, especially Uncharted’s Nathan Drake.
Ironically, I’ve never even played Uncharted. So basically, it’s my most favorite game… that I’ve never actually played.
Still, my jaw dropped cartoonishly at the sight of the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves “Fortune Hunter” edition and its replica of the Phurba Dagger, collectible art book, and autographed collector case. I vowed to do everything in my power to get one for myself.
Unfortunately, Naughty Dog isn’t rolling the “Fortune Hunter” edition out as a retail product. It can only be won. And one way to win it is to reserve Uncharted 2 at GameStop in order to receive access to their exclusive multiplayer demo, which began yesterday and ends on 9.29.2009. Somehow, someway, hints on how to land a “Fortune Hunter” edition of your very will be revealed through said multiplayer demo.
Now, you may be wondering how I intend to participate in the Uncharted 2 multiplayer demo when I don’t even own a PS3. Well, to be frank, I am not above exploiting my friends. So from now until the end of September I’ll be bumming on my buddy Mike’s couch. I’m sure his wife won’t mind. It’s for a good cause.
