A new year, a new set of Blocks, a brand new start.
It's about time I ditched the aging NerdBlock thread, and gave the new blocks their own thread.

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!
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..

Overall Thoughts

I enjoyed the contents of the E-block much more than the M-block, but I'm fairly sure that's mostly due to the fact that I'm not that much of a fan of modern day "everything must be a FPS!" gaming.
Still, I said 3 months, so if by the March block I'm still unhappy, I'll probably scrap the M and stick with the E. In the meantime, I'm going to be sticking with 2 boxes a month.
The E's already cheered me right up

Now to organise my chest of drawers to fit even more bloody TShirts in!!

The pin badge is definitely based on Legend of Zelda on the NES (even includes the broken edges, although the badge has white highlighting that the NES game doesn't).

I loved Tomb Raider BITD and I didn't get the T-shirt reference until you said what it was (Lara visits the lost world towards the end of the very first game). Needs more Lara, but nice enough.

Parappa Plushie? AWESOME!!!

The Revenge of Shinobi is a fantastic MD game. A bit of card with the game's box-art on? Not so much.

But yeah, these boxes definitely seem better than the old ones. Some nice stuffage. The games looked alright too - I've heard good things about "Lovers..."

Hmm..
Only one block's turned up, today.
Hmm. Maybe Mr Postie nicked my other one!?
Or maybe it's just delayed for stupid reasons..
I'll give it until Friday before I whinge..

Gamer E update.
The block finally got through customs, yesterday. Ffs, that's almost a full week after the M Block managed to get through customs...
They were originally dispatched within 3 hours of each other, according to the tracking info...!

Overall Thoughts

A lovely collection, this month.
Kinda bummed that the "Game of the Month" is taking up space that could be used for "Another fun little shelf filler", but otherwise no gripes.
.. oh, no.. There is ONE gripe..
Why the hell'd it take so bloody long!?!?!

Some good stuffage there on the whole and some not so much.

I've not heard of the game either.

Ooooooooooh!!!

NerdBlock have a new "every other month" block..
It's only a DOCTOR BLOODY WHO BLOCK!!!
Excellent!

My GamerBlock "M for Mature" has instantly been cancelled, and I've subscribed to the WhoBlock.

I *think* I should still be getting this month's GamerM, but I guess we'll find out, later, when it does or doesn't turn up! (Although, given what happened, last month, it may still show up 3 months later!!)

Gamer E will continue as per usual.

\o/yeaywho\o/

Overall Thoughts

A bit of a shit month, this month, to be honest.
Thankfully I've already cancelled GamerM, and replaced it with the new WhoBlock.
If next month's GamerE comes with a Dalek, I'm going to be well cheesed off!

Lying gits!

I love that Boo & Pac ghost T-shirt. Everything else? Not so much.

A very poor selection this month. Shame. Never heard of the games though. Can't be arsed to look them up either.

Each month, they send a server about the blocks.
This was in this month's...



That was a bloody hard question to answer!!!
