I finally got my Arcade Block for the month of August due to some mailing issues. Time to break into the box.
This month’s Arcade Block promised items from Fallout, Mortal Kombat and Scott Pilgrim and they did not disappoint. Watch the video below and then stick around for my score on everything.
Scott Pilgrim vs the World the Game Soundtrack: I cannot wait to listen to this because I am a big fan of the game let alone anything Scott Pilgrim so this is my favorite item which gets a 4 out of 4.
The Counter-Strike Shirt Punch T-Shirt: I like that it's a play on the classic NES cartridges and not something off subject. The shirt gets a 4 out of 4.
Boston Vault Dwellers ( Fallout ) Pennant : This was a pretty cool pennant and lets you follow the “best team” in the post apocalyptic world of Fallout. The pennant is original and gets a 3 out of 4 for me.
The Mortal Kombat X Plush: I am an old school fighter and love both Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter so to have a Scorpion Plush is very cool and I think he is an amazing little guy. He gets a 3 out of 4. He would have gotten a four but he didn’t take that much space in the box. Could have been something a little bigger.
Retro Videogame Magazine: I am glad that they brought the magazine back into the box and as I said last month I hope they keep it in the box. The magazine is a perfect fit for Arcade Block and it’s something I read cover to cover. 4 out of 4 for the magazine.
Terry cloth wristband: It is what it is a wristband for you to wear. You have two options to get and I mean it is cool but my least favorite thing out of the box. I guess wristbands went out with me in the 80’s so having one now while I game feels weird. Still a decent effort and a nice one to boot. This gets a 2 out of 4.
