For the love of God, first 7 Eleven and now Burger King have jumped on the Halo train. If I can't buy a copy of Halo at Exxon when I pump gas, I am going to be simply APPALLED, do you hear? I want it available in a disposable wall unit next to my tampons in all public bathrooms. I want it tied to the fraking box when I order Chinese take-out, and most importantly of all, I want any person I engage in sexual relations with to be dressed as Master Chief and only talk to me in full in-game dialogue. Got it, Bungie?
All ranting aside, if you haven't cashed in on the Halo madness yet, now's the time to take advantage for free. I'm not sure why you would have purchased the game without a gold account (maybe to sample the fabulous single player campaign), but you may as well take advantage of a freebie while one's on the table. I don't need a gold account, but I do kind of crave french fries now.
