The pre-order bonuses for Guitar Hero: Metallica
run the gamut of usefulness when dealing with down payment freebies
-- the first (and unquestionably most desirable) of these bonuses we already knew about: Dropping a paper Lincoln on the title at GameStop will net you an extra drum pedal
with which to face the game's most punishing percussion solos. A bit further down on the Scale of Practicality is the pre-order bonus for Hollywood Video and GameCrazy: A pair of Guitar Hero: Metallica
drumsticks. Not an amazing gift, but it sure beats a keychain.
On the complete opposite side of the aforementioned scale is the gift that Best Buy patrons will bring home: Tattoo sleeves. We can only imagine that they're talking about those fake slip-on things
that make it look like you've swapped appendages with Tommy Lee, and not, you know, actual tattoos
. We assume that particular consumer electronics retailer has some policy prohibiting in-store decorative body modification.
