At the end of May I got an email that my next Infinity Crate for June was dispatched. I thought that maybe they messed up and sent it by accident because I clearly remember cancelling my 1 month subscription (which was a test, you can find the May crate review here). Lo and behold a week or so later I actually got the box and it was a mistake on my part because I cancelled it only after I paid for the June one.
I really can’t complain, it’s a win/win situation for me. As always, I’m here for you guys to give my unbiased and honest opinion on the contents. Let’s get on it! Continue Reading
If you are a geek and have been around the internet for a while, I think that you might be familiar with the term ‘cosplay’. For those of you who are lost, cosplay means ‘costume play’, where people portray their favorite characters from movies, games, tv shows, comics, etc. Cosplayers usually don’t just walk around every day like that but instead choose conventions of all kinds to show their love and geekery. Continue Reading
In my quest of searching for more geeky subscription boxes, I’ve had a rather tough time. Boxes I’d love to try don’t ship to my country, so I have to search really hard. However, I have came across Infinity Crates. This UK based service offers a few options – Classic Crate, Premium Crate, Kids Crate and T-shirt only Crate. Continue Reading
If you’ve been a frequent or semi-frequent visitor to my little blog, you probably noticed that I haven’t updated in a couple of weeks. The reason is simple. I have been working on an exciting new feature for the website, coding away in my free time until the late hours of the night. 🙂 As the title of this post reveals, I have added a new section for the website called Gaming Gift Ideas.

There’s times when you can’t afford any new gaming merchandise and that’s okay! If you’re a bit crafty, with a few inexpensive supplies you can make some great things! In this post I’ll show you how to make Yarny from the game Unravel. Yarny is a cute little figure made out of single piece or yarn which unravels as he travels through the environment.

If you’ve been on my blog before, you know that I have some pretty awesome friends. Last Christmas I got spoiled with a Assassin’s Creed Connor wallet and art book, but I also got this great Altair style Assassin’s Creed messenger bag (official product). I know that from photos it’s really hard to visualize how much stuff you can put it and what all the materials are, so I’ll do my best to give you an honest and complete review. Continue Reading
I met EBoy87 on a Twitch livestream over a year ago and since then we have become good friends. Since he’s currently planning to make a 24-hour charity livestream, I wanted to sit down with him and ask about his experience with livestreaming on Twitch.
EBoy87 will be rising money for the Cancer Reasearch UK Relay for Life on 30th April 2016. If you want to pop in and say hi (or even donate to this worthy cause!), make sure to visit his Twitch.tv channel. Continue Reading
I’ve been browsing the internet for some new Assassin’s Creed hoodies and found quite a few that I liked. I found 6 official hoodies from the most recent games *and* I found out that the store offers free worldwide shipping. Continue Reading
Oh, yes, it’s that time again! Time to pick this debate back up and add my own 5 cents. I’m well aware this debate has been going around ever since people started collecting memorabilia. Besides the old question why do we collect memorabilia, there’s also the question of unboxing action figures and memorabilia. Some people are for it, some people strongly against and it has caused quite a few fights among the internet folks. Continue Reading

Have you designed a great fan art of your favorite video game and think it would look great on something like a t-shirt, hoodie, mug or perhaps a tote bag? Thanks to the internet now you don’t have to search for a printing service in your city. Instead, you can create your own t-shirt online very easily from the comfort of your own home (and maybe earn a few dollars)!
I’ve picked a selection of several print on demand (POD) services which I have used in the past. I’ve listed pros and cons of each service from my perspective. The list is in no particular order. Continue Reading
If you’ve been to my blog before or know me in real life, you know that I’m not Irish. And you’re probably asking who the heck is Jacksepticeye. Since St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, I have decided to write about my favorite Irishman, the loud and boisterous Jacksepticeye, one of my favorite Youtubers. Continue Reading
As you may or may not know, I like Assassin’s Creed *and* I have the best friends ever. My friend E. gifted me the Assassin’s Creed: The Complete Visual History book for Christmas 2015 and I have to tell you, it’s completely stunning. I have never owned a concept art book of anything and I always assumed such things were only filled with pictures.
Oh, how wrong I was.
If you want to see what’s inside, come with me… Continue Reading
The Legend of Zelda is probably one of the most famous video game series of all time. It has been first released by Nintendo in 1986 and since then the series expanded into 18 more games and spin offs, including a TV show and manga adaptations. This fantasy action-adventure game centers around the character of Link, whose aim is to save Princess Zelda and the land of Hyrule against Ganondorf/Ganon and other monsters.
In this article I picked 12 Legend of Zelda t-shirts and hoodies that I personally liked (it was really tough to just choose 6 of each though!). Most of these on the list are fanmade but I have put one or two official apparel in there as well. Continue Reading
The internet hosts literally thousands upon thousands of web stores. Usually it’s not extremely difficult to find what you are looking for and the same applies also to video gaming merchandise. There are many shops that offer such products; large portals which sell everything and also niche specific e-stores.
At this day and age the internet also gives the opportunity to be creative for individuals, so aside from official merchandise, there are people who design t-shirts, handmade jewelry, costumes, etc.
In this post I’ll show you four of my favorite stores that I like to visit for both official and unofficial gaming merchandise. Even when I’m limited by my bank account, I always like to visit to see what’s new and just browse and bookmark products that I’m interested in. Continue Reading
My good friend R., who is a long term Loot Crate subscriber, offered me to test one out for free. So I did and ordered the Loot Crate for February 2016. February’s theme was aptly named ‘dead’ and I will tell you why in a moment (I feel like the image above is descriptive enough though).
For those of you who are not familiar with Loot Crate, it’s basically a subscription service, where you can get geeky gaming gear and merchandise. You can pick among several of Loot Crates to subscribe to (for example the standard Loot Crate, Loot Crate Anime for anime merchandise, Loot Crate Pets with stuff for your dog, Loot Crate Gaming, etc.). Every month there’s a special theme but you don’t know what is in the box that will arrive to your doorstep until you open it. Continue Reading
