Excited for the new Friday the 13th movie? Me neither, BUT! There's a new reason to get excited for the little promotional campaign Epic and Microsoft has been using to entice some new Gears 2 players.

Five first prize packages every day, which includes the soundtrack, novel, in-game golden weapons(heh, lol) and a signed poster
