Primal Rage Calling Card

Postby VideoGameCritic » May 15th, 2020, 12:04 am

For some reason when I bought Primal Rage (I think at Electronics Boutique) in 1994 I received a calling card with it. That's a card you could use to make long distance calls back then. The card was red with the primal rage characters lining the front.

Anyway whenever I would take my girlfriend somewhere and need to charge something, I would ask "do you accept Primal Rage?" and present that card. Hilarity would ensure (in my mind at least).

Dammit I wish I still had that card!!

:lol: I wonder why certain games included calling cards back then. I always thought it was so kids would call the "tips & tricks" hotline, but maybe not. Before this, the only game I ever heard of including a calling card was Mohawk & Headphone Jack for the SNES. I bought that game from a pawnshop like 15 years ago, and it was complete and still had the calling card with it.

What a bizarre thing to include with a videogame.
