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.
It’s time for me to review the Gaming Colossal Crate from April 2017! This one was also packed with a lot of great stuff, so continue reading to find out!
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.

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.

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
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 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
