I love this month’s box artwork. You can set this up nicely as a city backdrop if you’re using your boxes for display. Not only that, there are callouts to the games through this image – nice work!

This month’s theme was Metro! Here’s a look at the booklet and the monthly pin. This month’s pin has a city-scape on it, appropriately.

Here’s a quick glance inside this month’s booklet as well – with a good look at the pin.

Loot Gaming Subscription Box Review + Coupon April 2016 - bioshock shirt

Bioshock Shirt – Value $10?

This month’s shirt focuses on Bioshock and the city of Rapture! I love that you can make out the outline of Big Daddy – do you see it? Very cool.

Resident Evil S.T.A.R.S. Beanie – Value $10-15?

Next is an exclusive beanie featuring Resident Evil! This is an incredibly nice beanie – but is really tight on my head. I can’t believe it’s the 20th anniversary of Resident Evil. I feel old now.

Fallout Metal Print – Value $10?

If you’re going to do a print, it’s much nicer to get them on something solid and unique like this 6×9 metal alloy print.

This is some fantastic concept artwork for Fallout as we see them exploring downtown Boston.

Mirror’s Edge Watch – Value $15-20?

The next exclusive is a Mirror’s Edge watch. This is made of black silicone, all around.

Once you press the watch face, you’ll see the watch face.

The Division 16GB USB Drive – Value $25-30?

The final item this month is a 16GB USB drive.

It comes in this little case that commemorates Tom Clancy’s The Division.

The ammo clip actually pops out, and that’s you little USB drive. It’s nice to see that it’s 16GB as well – that’s a win!

Loot Gaming Subscription Box Review + Coupon April 2016 - DLC

You also get an exclusive DLC weapon skin to show your Loot Crate pride!

Verdict: This was a great month from Loot Gaming! I thought all the items we’re fun and useful – that’s a good combo for me. I’m not sure if they’re succeeding at their idea of pulling items out of the game, but in some instances, they are, like the little USB drive. Overall, I liked this month better than the first month – so I feel good about the direction it’s headed. I also like that we’ve received DLC each month too – that feels like a must in a video game themed box.

What did you think of the April 2016 Metro Loot Gaming?

  1. Ugh. I wish I could get my hands on that fallout print.
    Great box!

  2. Didn’t they send a watch similar to this is a previous Loot Crate??
    I think the theme was Covert?

    • You’re right – March 2015. I totally forgot about that watch – good memory.

  3. Ha, I didn’t notice the Big Daddy outline on my shirt. I just assumed it was Rapture, but I see it now, that’s cool!

  4. My 18 year-old son LOVED this box!

  5. That USB drive is freaking awesome!! ??????
