I would be remiss if I didn't mention that one of the best parts of my job is receiving mysterious packages in the mail from various developers and publishers. Sometimes we know to expect them, and other times they're a wonderful surprise.
This morning, I came into work to find a cryptic box from 2K games on my desk with only the word "Destructoid" written on it. Knowing it had to be related to The Darkness II, I opened it with a fervor strong enough to actually tear the plastic cover of the game. Guess I'll have to be more careful next time!
