October 2018 ‘Nightmare’ Loot Gaming Review

My disclaimer on this review is that both the box and the review are late. This is the October box that arrived around mid-November for us.

You’ll get a large fold-out information sheet.

One side features a 28×22 poster – this month’s poster features Soul Calibur 2.

The reverse side will walk you through the items in the crate.

Pac-Man Ghost Pin – Value $5?

This month’s pin was so classic that it’s probably one of my favorite from this subscription!

Soul Calibur 2 Shirt – Value $15?

The Soul Edge sword is featured front and center here. I kind of love it on the plain white tee since it really pops that lower graphic.

Psychonauts Beanie – Value $15?

Raz, the main character of the Psychonauts’ games, is often seen sporting some goggles:

Source: Steam

So why not look the part? This is cool and subtle little nod to a small franchise with a pretty big cult following.

Silent Hill Coaster Set – Value $10-15?

That fog. I can still remember walking my character through that dang fog in the first Silent Hill and hearing my radio start to pick up activity – it was always a game I was glad to play with someone else! These are little vinyl coasters based on a seal from that first game – they’re really nice flexible vinyl.

Cuphead Air Freshener – Value $5?

The final item is small, but it’s also my favorite! Cuphead was easily one of the more difficult recent platformer games – but for me, it was a nice nod to those stupidly hard games of my past. I still love it.

Verdict: I liked the items from this box – I’m just not sure that all the franchises fit into the theme, it was a tiny bit spread out. The good part is that you’ll know the franchises before subscribing. My easy favorite of the box is also the smallest item – the little air freshener – I think subscribing when features a franchise you’re really into leaves you with the best probability of love the box.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No – they’re currently taking orders for the December 2018 box. You’ll have until the 27th of each month to get that month’s theme!

  1. Did the coaster set only have 3 coasters? Seems like an odd number is all lol.

  2. So glad to see Silent Hill getting some love!
