November Loot Crate Review and Free Game Giveaway!

So I got my first Loot Crate in the mail the other day!

The theme was Battle, and I must admit, when I first got the email detailing the games franchises that would be featured, I was not very excited.  I played a little bit of Street Fighter 2 back in the day, but I have never played much Mega Man, or Assassin’s Creed and I actively avoid Halo.

However, some of the items in the box were a pleasant surprise!  For example, the Pirates vs. Ninjas t-shirt, which pleased my wordy heart.

I also really enjoyed the Street Fighter Ryu headband.  I wore it to the gym the day I got it.

The Assassin’s Creed collectible coin doesn’t really interest me too much, but I have a good friend who really loves the series so it will make a good gift.  And the Mega Man helmet and the Halo figurine… *shrug*.  They aren’t for me but I’m sure they will find good homes.  Both of them were one of several variants (for the record, I got the gray helmet) and already I’m getting emails asking if I want to purchase others out of the set.  Right now they are living on my desk with my Xinzhida League of Legends Sona figurine but I suspect they might migrate to Ebay sometime soon.

Finally, the box contained some digital loot, including coupon codes for games and digital comics.  More on those later.

The most interesting aspect of the Loot Crate, to me, was the box itself, which can be assembled into a miniature diorama.  The Loot Crate team urges subscribers to create their own battle scenes and upload them onto social media with a specific hashtag, promising to feature the best entries in next month’s newsletter.  #clevermarketing

So, all in all, I would say that I’m generally satisfied with the crate.  It definitely seemed to me that they tried to keep the desires of a lot of different kinds of gamers and collectors in mind.  The aesthetics of the collectables varied from super cute (my preference) to hyper-detailed and realistic, and the apparel was made of nice quality material that will be pleasant to wear.

Next month’s crate’s theme has already been announced.  It will celebrate the anniversaries of three major geeky brands that occurred in 2014: Batman’s 75th, Marvel’s 75th, and Ghostbuster’s 30th.  I am a HUGE fan of all three of these brands, so I am pretty excited for this box.  Furthermore, the box will contain a never-before-seen Funko Pop! figurine!  I’ve been coveting the exclusive Groot figurine that came out in August, so I’m excited to see what it will be.

That brings me to my free game giveaway!

This month’s Loot Crate came with a free download of Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition for Steam.

    • Hello!

      Unfortunately after no one replied I wound up giving the Steam code away to a friend. 😦
      Sorry to disappoint! Keep your eyes peeled though! I occasionally get free copies of games to pass out here!
