Well, Archer slept through the whole thing, but one day, years from now, I’ll pull up this post and then he’ll suffer. Until then he’ll remain blissfully ignorant that he was a cog in the relentless wheels of THQ’s Company of Heroes 2 PR machine. He’ll say “But father, I don’t want to join the Red Army!” to which I will reply, “Not a lot of people did, son.”
Then we’ll laugh and laugh.
Along with the tiny fuzzy hat came a card that read: “операция красный снег готовиться к холодному фронту, товарищ”. Fifteen minutes in Google Translate later and I deciphered the message: “Operation Red Snow — Prepare for a cold front, comrade.”
Well at least someone in this house is prepared for a cold front.
