Loot Crate is a monthly box, of geek and gamer gear, every month the subscriber receives a box in the mail with an assortment of different items these items are always gamer/geek related. Loot Crate promises the subscriber to receive a box of “Loot” every month with at least a $40 value. A month subscription is about $20 that’s with shipping and handling fees, a three month subscription is roughly $60, a six month subscription runs about $113 and last but not least a full year subscription will run $215. So with all these different prices being thrown around it makes me question is Loot Crate worth your hard earned cash?
Well let’s begin with what you receive in your crate every month each month there’s a different theme which gives the subscriber some sort of idea of what they will receive, this month theme is unite which seems like some sort of superhero theme most likely due to the release of “Age of Ultron” some pass themes have been fantasy, rewind and covert. The items will correlate to the theme, I’ll put an unboxing video and some images showing off some of the neat things that people received in last month’s crate. The theme was fantasy so each item was related to that theme. Personal I like the themes that the Loot Crate team puts together every month, I enjoy this very much it allows me to take some guesses of what items I’ll be receiving in my mail box every month.
So with all of these goodies you can get each month is it really worth the price tag? Would it be cheaper to buy all of these items individually? The short answer is yes its 100% worth the money I mean you can’t really ask for anything better than this. If you are avid collector of geeky items like myself then it’s a great resource to get many of the items you’re looking for, also loot crate has many exclusive items that can’t be purchased in stores making these items more valuable to collectors. The best perk I think that you get with subscribing to Loot Crate is you don’t have to go out and purchase anything, it all gets delivered to your mail box and that’s great for someone like myself who works often and doesn’t have much free time to go run to stores and purchase these items individually. If you’re interested in subscribing to Loot Crate I would recommend doing a month subscription its $20 you can’t go wrong give it a try I believe it’s totally worth the money!

Treyarch is finally starting to rival some more content about Call of Duty Black ops 3, the game seems as it is going to appear in a dystopian themed society. The year is 2065 so 45 years after its predecessor Call of Duty Black ops 2. The main controversy in the game seems to follow the merge of technology with human beings, creating some sort of “Super Human” which eventually will lead to the creation of “Super Soldiers.” Honestly I think this idea is very creative and different, I like the route Treyarch is going with this new Call of Duty game.
Moving on with the merging of technology and humans, it seems that there will be many options in this rendition of Call of Duty allowing players to have more freedom than ever before. The main mechanic of the game making it unique from all the other Call of Duty’s in the series is the SOLDIER IS NOW THE WEAPON. Pretty much your solider is going too fused with technologic advances allowing them to actually be the weapon. In the clip the soldiers seem to have plenty of new abilities that will keep this Call of Duty feeling fresh way beyond its launch date. Some of the abilities consist of converting the soldiers hand into a gun, super punching (which will probably replace the knifing feature) and it seems as if the solider can throw some type of frag at the enemy by ejecting them out of their hands.
One great new feature that is being added into Call of Duty Black ops 3 is the Gunsmith feature this feature allows players to customize their weapons unlike any of the other passed Call of Duty’s have. I’m really excited to see to what extent this feature will go to I’m totally looking forward to this!!!
“David Vonderhaar, studio design director at Treyarch, said the new weapon customization system allows players to simultaneously equip up to five attachments and an optic. Once a weapon has been fine-tuned to their liking, players can customize and personalize them with next gen camos and an infinite number of user-generated content possibilities with the Paint shop.” (Caveonline.com)
In other news there is no said date of when we will be getting another trailer for the multiplayer however at the end of this trailer they confirm that zombies will be coming back which is something I’m extremely excited for I will be posting more about Black ops 3 as more information is released thank you and happy gaming.
Pokémon Rumble World is similar to its predecessors, by having a very basic gameplay mechanic, this game is great for a younger audience to pick up and play, although the game does start to lose its touch after 20 minutes of gameplay. For us older gamers and long lived fans of the Pokémon series this game doesn’t have much to offer, the premise of the game is to control cute toy Pokémon in order to collect all 710 species of Pokémon. The story isn’t anything special you play as your mii character and you’re ordered by a king to start collecting as many Pokémon as you can, that’s pretty much the entire plot of this game however you are given daily challenges to complete which makes the story slightly more entertaining, but it’s not about the story, the game is about collecting your toy pocket monster.
Continuing, the gameplay consist of playing as a toy Pokémon and using them to attack other toy Pokémon, many of the elements from the main line Pokémon games also come into effect in this game such as type effectiveness, status conditions and level of Pokémon. There’s really only two goals the player has to work towards which is collecting all 710 Pokémon and buying all the items in the shop, the shop offers clothing for your mii and various upgrades for your toy Pokémon, during the game you collect coins which can be used as currency in the shop you also collect poke-diamonds by completing daily challenges you can also obtain these diamonds through the street pass feature, but if you’re feeling good you could also purchase poke-diamonds through the E-shop with real money.
Lastly, the newest mechanic which has just been recently added is, the player can use passwords to unlock Pokémon toys to their game, these Pokémon contain special moves that cannot be unlocked by normal means of gameplay. I will leave the Torchic code in this post so if anyone wants it feel free to download it. This code allows Torchic to gain the moves Flame Charge and Flame Burst enjoy!
Wrapping things up I believe this game is good if you have some time to kill and you’re getting tired of playing super smash brothers on your 3DS, the game isn’t complete garbage it’s just not a game I would invest many hours into, like I said in the beginning of the article I believe this game is great for a younger audience due to its simplicity, however if you’re an older fan you may see it as very boring with a lack of challenge but the game is FREE which makes it totally worth checking out give it a shot see if you enjoy it!
