Her post about it:

well about a year ago (or whenever the article came out) when they said they were toning down the scares, for DS2 i was bytching on twitter. the art director i guess saw, and @replied me like "the game is still going to be awesome" so i said i would follow him, and let give him shyt personally if it was not awesome when it came out.

fast forward to now, i @replied him telling him the game was indeed awesome, and he does not have to suffer a wrath of anger from me. lol he saw my tweets about what happened with my xbox/dog, and DM'ed me saying "whats your address" i gave it and he said "wait about a week"

this showed up today lol. i didn't really want to get too excited because i had no idea what would become of it, if anything, but this is amazing lol i am sooo happy.
and a link to her blog about it


Good show, guys.

That is a very bad, bad, cute dog. How did it break the game, btw? Chew on the disk? Or was there scratching involved?

EDIT: OK, the game was in the 360 (which miraculously survived somehow).

while i was playing it, my dog knocked over my 360
Very sweet of Visceral. Hmmm...maybe if I leave my DS2 disks out, my cats will end up scratching them somehow....

Good show Visceral. Nice gesture.

Came in here expecting "kills her dog", actual ending was much nicer.
I more thought "gave her the tools to dismember her dog" but that's close.

and then the unthinkable happened… while i was playing it, my dog knocked over my 360, causing me to head to twitter and do again what i did all that time ago. i bitched. liquid escaped my face, as my whole gaming world went dark and ugly. i tried everything from cleaning it, to trying to install it. nothing worked.
According to the blog.
EDIT: Beaten, by, uh, you.

Hey, Visceral, playing your Dead Space 2 beta broke my launch 60 gig PS3. Where was my replacement? :/ I was even in the top ten on the leaderboard. :p

Wow my original copy of Metal Gear Solid 4 didn't survive an encounter with my then teething pug and I never thought to friend Ryan Payton. Oh well ;) Cool developers!

I completely agree. It makes them stand out in such a good and positive way that alot of other companies don't.
If you think that's a nice gesture, why don't you take a note from their book and return the $50 you stole from Kerrinck to him?

So if I bitch about a game on Twitter, I may potentially score something free and awesome?

Only if you're a girl.

The dog was just trying a little negative reinforcement to correct her "cute" spelling issues.

Way to screw all that up Visceral.

So why'd they all sign her copy? Is she sick or something?
They probably didn't sign her copy. I'd imagine all games have multiple signed copies like this that can be handed out for prizes and the like.
