Loot Gaming Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - shirt

Street Fighter Fight Shirt – $15?

I love the look of this month’s shirt. You get the classic Street Fighter font displaying “FIGHT” with a ton of classic characters pictured inside! Not too over the top while still be instantly recognizable to Street Fighter fans – that’s kind of the holy grail for shirts to me.

Loot Gaming Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - Tracer POP

Overwatch Tracer POP – Value $10-15

I add some extra value to this POP because it’s an exclusive, at least its green color is exclusive. Overwatch is really all over the place since its release – everyone is loving it, including some fellow reviewers on MSA! I haven’t had a chance to jump in – but I’ve watched a ton of recorded gameplay video from my friends and it does look fun and addicting.

Loot Gaming Subscription Box Review + Coupon June 2016 - TF2 hat front

Team Fortress 2 Hat – Value $15-20?

This month included a hat – of which you could have received in red or blue – for Team Fortress 2. It’s definitely a higher quality snapback hat. This is noted as exclusive but was created via the Steam Workshop – I wouldn’t be surprised to see more and more from it in the future – maybe gamer created items will get them closer to their initial vision of pulling items out of games?

DOTA 2 Gaming Mat – Value $15?

Speaking of the Steam Workshop – this is another item from the workshop. This is an exclusive DOTA2 gaming mat – these are extra large for the gaming community and features a ton of DOTA 2 characters.

Team Fortress 2 Art Print – Value $10?

The final item comes from Team Fortress 2 as well. Surprise, surprise, also from Steam Workshop – have I just been oblivious to this fact or have they been using it for months? This is a movie poster for the fan film – End of the Line

Pretty cool!

Verdict: I love seeing Loot Gaming getting the community involved a bit more – it’s a smart move because online gaming, and gaming in general, has such a strong community to pull from – it’s a good way to make the masses happy. I love seeing Funko start to make its return to Loot Crates, this month we saw a Fallout Dorbz in the core crate, and now an exclusive, keep that up too! I’m still holding out hope that they will eventually get to their initial mission statement of pulling items from games into the box – that’d be an exciting thing to actually realize. Loot Gaming has been a fun and good box, but if they can capture what they were aiming for, I think it can be a great crate.

What do you think of the June Loot Gaming?

  1. Overwatch is a lot of fun. At first, I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy it because I’m not really into FPS games. It’s easy to get the hang of, though! I also love that there are quite a few female characters and they are realistically clothed. 😉

  2. I wasn’t excited about much except the Street Fighter spoiler but I really ended up liking this box a lot more than I thought I would. The t-shirt is awesome, and Overwatch is one of the games I also really want to play (and you can’t really go wrong with a Pop, in my opinion.). And, honestly, that hat is really high quality, love it.

  3. I am so glad that I skipped this month! I may have to go back to nerdblock Sci fi (which I cancelled to try this out regrettably). If the spoilers for this next one are not highly enjoyable, I’m definitely not sticking around.
