The Art of the Sell

I played a couple games of Company of Heroes last night with work buddies Joe and Marc. I’ll have a full write up of how the games went tonight or tomorrow, but in the mean time, what you’ll find below is an actual E-mail conversation we had today, copied word for word, trying to convince our other buddy Brian to get in on the CoH action so we can have proper 2 vs. 2 matches.

To: Brian
From: David (That’s me!)

Hey Brian, how interested are you in buying Company of Heroes (Game of the Year edition just $19.99) and playing with myself, Joe, and Marc?


To: David, Joe, Marc
From: Brian

Hmm, sounds interesting. Maybe I’ll pick it up then. Do you guys have it already? Also, what’s up for lunch tomorrow?


To: Brian, David, Marc
From: Joe

Yes we all bought Game of the Year edition. We played it together last night. It was super fun.


To: David, Joe, Marc
From: Brian

The problem with us playing RTS games is that we all know Marc is going to win. It’s all a matter of who comes in second. I have the day off tomorrow and should be back by lunch time if you guys wanna meet somewhere.


To: Brian, David, Marc
From: Joe

Actually, Dave and I won the first game over Marc and the Computer. Dave and Marc completely obliterated me and the CPU the 2nd match. We usually go for lunch at 11:30. So just show up and we’ll decide whatever.


To: Joe, Brian, David
From: Marc

In my defence…THE COMPUTER SUCKS!!!


To: Marc, Joe, Brian
From: David

Yet, the computer lasted longer than you.


To: David, Joe, Brian
From: Marc

1) You thought you were fighting the PC the whole game…when in reality…it was ME!
2) Joe was a cheap ass…stupid artillery…GOD!


To: Marc, Joe, Brian
From: David

1) I thought I was fighting the PC the whole time because quite frankly, I thought you were supposed to be good at this game
2) Joe is a cheap ass, and always will be. He is not God.


To: David, Joe, Brian
From: Marc

1) noob
2) shut up…


To: Marc, Joe, Brian
From: David

1) My poop
2) Your mouth


To: David, Joe, Brian
From: Marc

Anways…It’s a good investment Brian. The graphics are great and the game play can be compared to Generals / Dawn of War although the controls are a bit better…These fools love tanks, that’s all that Joe gets.


To: Marc, David, Joe
From: Brian

It looks like fun. I read that the resources are not harvested? You accumulate them over time depending on the territory you control? On a side note, I should probably stop using my work email for this, so from now on, send everything to <email address> kthx.


Perhaps I should go into marketing or something.
