Earlier this year I have been approached by the brand Eighty Sixed, who are a small gaming merchandise store offering game related t-shirt and keychains. They offered to send me some of their products for my blog to review, so I took the opportunity to do a mini-interview with the vice-president Danny Shnorhokian.
Resident Evil (in Japan known as Biohazard) is one of the best known horror survival video games in the world. First released in 1996 by Capcom on Playstation, the franchise has expanded over the last 20 years also into comics, live-action movies, novels and many more. Possibly the best widely recognized “logo” from the game is that of the Umbrella Corporation, an international fictional pharmaceutical company.
Resident Evil is a very large franchise so it’s no wonder a lot of merchandise has been released during the years. The newest game, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, is due to release on January 24th, 2017 worldwide (January 26th in Japan) for Xbox One, PC and Playstation 4, therefore to celebrate that I decided to bring you some great Resident Evil merchandise.

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.

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.
