LootCrate


And so our new journey begins.
With NerdBlock jumping off a cliff, I've moved over to LootCrate and all the oddities from their universe.
Unlike NerdBlock's GamerE for Everyone box, I'm going to be getting a lot of "AAA" bollocks that I know little/nothing about, so expect the variety to be leaning more towards the "WTF" area with these crates!

With that in mind, let's begin, shall we!?

-=-=-
Scoring
Each item will be given the following scores, out of 5.

WTF? : (BAD!) Items score higher if I don't know what the hell game they're supposed to represent, or if I haven't ever played any of the games they're associated with!
Aww! : (GOOD!) Items score higher if I go "Awww!" when pulling them out of the box.
Keep : (AWESOME!) Probability I'll be keeping the item, or placing it into the rejection box, which gets given to anyone who I know is a gamer, and/or can guess WTF it's supposed to be..

LootCrate Gaming Crate - August 2017
> Reveal 🔎

Total Scores
WTF : 17/30
Aww : 19/30
Keep : 25/30

-=-=-

Overall Thoughts

High enough scores, but mostly held up by the inclusion of Zelda stuff!
I really wish LootCrate did a "I'm too old and grumpy to know any AAA games.. Gimme the Retro stuff!" crate!

While most of these aren't my cup of tea (Zelda & Witcher=great. Other stuff is ???), they do look like fairly good quality stuffage.

Part Two : Boxers
When I signed up, I also subscribed to the Boxers "crate" and the "Socks and Wearables" crate, too.
(Wasn't much of a crate, mind. Just a flimsy plasticky envelope!)

The socks and wearables haven't turned up, yet, but this morning I got my pants!!

Warning : Post contains a picture of my underwear!!!

Very eclectic selection there. And I don't know much about any of the series they are based on (although I do own three Assassins Creed games, I've never played any of them).

But yeah, nice enough I suppose. Isn't Rick & Morty a cartoon? Is the clothing supposed to be based on gaming or are they all pop-culture stuffage?

Only the gaming crate is definitely going to be gaming. The boxers, socks and wearables are "standard" LootCrate, so could be anything!!!

Both of September's LootWear goodies turned up, this morning, but no sign of the actual Crate, yet.

Let's have a peek inside!!

> Reveal 🔎

A nice haul, this month. I'm certainly enjoying the contents of the LootWear collection.

Slightly annoyed at one thing, though.
The little pamphlet says that if I were a She-Lady, I'd've got a lovely Star Trek Cardigan.
Fucknuts..

I dunno. Not much use over in the UK.
It's either too cold to wear just a thin TShirt material, so you'd have something (usually a "proper" hoodie) over the top, thus removing the point of having a hood on this.. or it's too warm to be wearing long sleeves.
There IS no middle ground in Britain!!!

Molly doesn't play.
Molly doesn't interact.
Molly doesn't do a lot!!!
We've never had an animal as antisocial as Molly is! Even the stick insect my sister used to have was more lively than Molly is.

Perhaps if we had a more interactive cat it might be worth it, but as it is, there'd be a pile of boxes in the corner of the room.

Not even a whole month has passed, and yet. Lootwear Ahoy!

Just the "Socks and Wearables" have turned up, so far, so you won't be seeing my underwear, today.
