Trukz - Giant Robot Giveaway
The folks behind Trukz asked us to put up this PR…I'm not sure how much this intersects with our readership but, hey, it's a giant robot we're talking about here:
Trukz.com Giving Away the Most Awesome, Giant 8FT Robot In the World
30th October 2008
OMAC Industries, the collective mad people behind Trukz.com, have managed to get their hands on one of the biggest all-metal robots in the world. This giant robot (which is modeled on one that transforms into a long haul truck, hence the connection), stands at about 8ft tall (thatís taller than Yao Ming) and is made from scrap metal collected from vehicle junkyards. Being of a rather generous nature (itís possible we were drunk when we decided this), weíve agreed to give it away to the Trukz.com community. At this stage you should see the attached photos to appreciate the sheer awesomeness of this competition.
By the way, in case you didnít know, Trukz.com is the webís leading online trucking game. Itís often described as a ďtrucking RPGĒ. You can read more at the bottom of the release.
Why would you want a giant robot, we hear you ask? How could you NOT want one?!? Useful for warding off burglars, wolves and Decepticons, these guys are the 21st century equivalent of elastic bands. Just donít try flicking them because youíll probably break your hand.
To have a chance to win this, all you have to do is drive 10,000 miles (in-game, obviously) between now and November 30th, 3008. If youíre not already in the game, just head on over to www.trukz.com and register. Itís all completely free so youíve really no excuse whatsoever.
Our draw will take place on Monday 1st December 2008 and the winner will be announced on Trukz.com

The robot is memorable, but the revelation that there are 16,000 people playing a persistent MMOG that's simulates hours, days , and weeks of driving a truck, except way more boring because you don't even steer the truck… well that's the kind of info that just makes my day.

Believe me, those same people laugh their butts off when they hear about "freaks" playing games as Trolls or skinny blue Elves.
