ARS Technica takes a look at a couple of the weird things that game reviewers received from game publishers in the last couple of years, you can check it out over here. For instance, a Destructoid reviewer received this massive Darksiders sword:
"I am fully aware that by posting this, I am essentially opening up any positive review of Darksiders (released this week) to accusations of pay-offs and bias. However, I don't really care, because I just received a GIANT MASSIVE DARKSIDERS SWORD!" Destructoid's Jim Sterling wrote upon delivery of this beast.
