Today’s deal is a METAL SLUG Pack!
HEROES IN A NO SHELL
There is unrest across the world! Militant facists have teamed up with space aliens, zombies, and mutants to take over the world! Even mummies (and dog mummies!) are in the mix! Their weapons can turn you into a mist of blood and flesh! Giant walking automatons are moving against our peace-loving coastal shantytown! Is there anyone out there that can help? What? No, not you guys! I wasn’t talking to you. What can four regular unassuming snails in eyeglasses do about it anyway? (Cue dope music) Don’t you think it’s time for those shells to come…off? (Guitars start wailin’)
For one late night, as the comet Metallica flew across the sky, four slow-moving snail teens were hit with a bolt of radioactive space energy which turned their skin to steel, made their shells fall off, and filled them with the righteous power to topple all the world’s evil, ushering in a new age of peace via blood-hungry gastropod! It’s the Metal Slug Pack! And whether they’re destroying war machines with endless homing missile barrages or just eating so much food that they physically change form, they’re here now to protect us, and they’re here to stay!
(Legal Note: Shortly after reading these two short paragraphs, it became painfully obvious to us that our copywriter has not only never played these games, but also didn’t even bother looking up any sort of real synopsis. We think he saw a screenshot or two because he got some of the enemy types right, but don’t worry, there’s not four bestselling games out there about a team of gross anthropomorphic heroes who evolved out of an unexpected type of sewer creature to fight evil. No one would ever be into that.)
(Also Legal Note: we had not heard of the Ninja Turtles before making that last joke. All parties involved have now been educated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.)
