Awesome BioShock 2 pen writes words, reminds us DLC has shipped

Not tosound too much likeForrest Gumpwith his boxof chocolates, but we really are never quite sure what we're going to get when openingthe mail here at GamesRadar. It could be a game, obviously.It could be a tinbarrel ofchocolate-drizzled popcorn.And it could be a metal pen in the shape of a steampunk syringe with the words "Sinclair Solutions" stamped onto itsbarrel.

The pen is meantto remind us that the new BioShock 2 DLC, the Sinclair Solutions Tester Pack, is now available. It's packed withnew multiplayer characters, masks, weapons upgrades, and trials. Sound good? Then get to buyin'.

Has this lavish new writing untensil enabled us to insta-chill beers and coworkers using only our brains? Unfortunately, no. Nor can we liven up the office with flaming tornados or swarms of angry bees. But it does write just fine, and that seems about right.

We've not seen the pen available at any retail or online stores, so we're afraid those of you lusting after it might have a tough time tracking one down. But there's always eBay - if human organs and haunted potato chips can show up there, we're pretty sure this will eventually too. Not ours, though. It's staying right here.

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
