Loot Gaming is themed for every delivery. Typically, you can expect to hear about the upcoming theme shortly after the boxes ship around the 27th or each month – this moth’s box shipped much later than normal, and just arrived today. October’s theme was ‘Rumble’.

This month’s info card was a large sheet that unfolds and features a poster on the reverse side.

Each month comes with a themed pin. These don’t unlock digital loot like the core crate pins, though. This one gives me some classic Punch-Out vibes.

Titanfall 2 Shirt – Value $15?

Prepare for Titanfall with this exclusive shirt. The second installment of the series is getting some good reviews, I’ve only played the first game – but it was an awesome feeling the first time you got your Titan! I think we can all agree that a rumble is better with mechs! What readers are currently playing on Titanfall 2?

Reaper POP – Value $13 on Amazon

I was a bit surprised to get a standard POP in Loot Crate – this is the first time in a long while that there wasn’t an exclusive figure in the box.

I think Overwatch may have been the most popular type of ‘Rumble’ game this year, so it definitely makes sense to include it in the box.

This POP is awesome, too. I love the overall design of the figure.

We just received an exclusive variant of the Tracer POP in the June Loot Gaming, too, so the collection grows!

Sonic Doctor Eggman Fingerless Gloves – Value $10?

These feature one of my heated rivals from my Genesis days – Doctor Eggman. The selection of a fingerless glove is a little weird, and selecting Doctor Eggman for the character felt a bit weird too.

Legend of Zelda: Ganondorf Socks – Value $10?

This month’s socks features one of the biggest baddies from Zelda – Ganondorf. I’ve been very into fun socks lately, in fact, I’m wearing my new Starfox socks today, so I’m excited to get these. I like both the design and the color scheme!

Mario Magnet – Value $5?

The last valued item is a Super Mario Bros fridge magnet. It measures around 4.5 x 4 inches and features the original rumbler – Mario.

You’ll also find a pack of band-aids in the box. On the info card, it says that we would receive Pac-Man band-aids, but those must have run short, I guess. These were sent for their social media contest to “Show how you looked after your last rumble”. The winner wins a Wii U and Super Smash Bros.

Verdict: The value is there this month, but it’s certainly not my favorite month of Loot Gaming. For me, it seemed like the franchise and item selections were a bit scatterbrained for the Rumble theme. I would have expected to find at least one fighting game featured this month like Super Smash Bros of Street Fighter.

What did you think of the October Loot Gaming? What franchise would you have liked to see?

  1. Oh man. I’m bummed I canceled before this box – we would love pretty much every single thing in here.

  2. I thought that this month’s box felt a little bit disjointed but I thought it was just me. I got my box very late too which was weird. Hopefully next month’s box is a little more cohesive. Thanks for the review Eric!
