The Mole: Get a grape squishee and Halo 3

A perfect marriage - Filed under the "Say what?" folder is the chance for gamers to buy Halo 3 at 7-Eleven. That's right, the home of $5 gallons of milk and 8-week old hot dogs is now allowing you to reserve the biggest game of the holiday season. How this relationship came about I have no clue, but I still can't figure out how Drew Carey keeps making money either so maybe its just one of those things I'll never understand.

...after playing CoD4 beta, I've got to say that I am looking more forward to it than Halo 3. The latest incarnation of the Call of Duty series blows the rest away, and IMO - will be best shooter of the year.

I was like the 3rd person to sign up for the beta and I didn't get a token to get it. Not sure what happened. I read someone on another site say that everyone that signed up for the beta would get a token eventually. I never did. Bummer.
