Unboxing: Arcade Block [November 2015]

Its the next unboxing!

Arcade Block arrived on Monday and like I mentioned in the Horror Block unboxing, I was excited! Their sneak peek thing really gets me anticipating what to expect next. Not in much of a rambling mood today (rare, I know). Let’s check it out! 🙂

Arcade Block [November 2015]

K’Nex Angry Birds-Mini Figure

Arcade Block

I haven’t quite figured out what to do with these.  I just put together the blue bird and propped up the poultry leg.  Are you a fan of Angry Birds? I used to play it on and off but its incredibly frustrating at times.  Now, I just play much easier games on Facebook like Criminal Case and the extremely adorable Farm Heroes Saga.  Or I go back to a classic like Bejeweled that I love.  Still, Angry Birds are rather adorable.

Exclusive: The Master Cork: A Drink to the Past

Arcade Block

It took me a little while to actually get what this was.  So its a cork, like literally.  I just put it next to the other gear on my office desk.  Haha! I guess its more suitable for a kitchen accessory 😉

Exclusive: Mansion Keys

Arcade Block

Our own key to unlock the door to a spooky mansion exit! Now, I’m ready to get thrown into a video game adventure 😉 Bring it on! If I had a choice, please send me to spooky mansion in the Mario verse.  I’d love to meet Boo 😉

Uncharted Vinyl Figure: Nathan Drake

Arcade Block

This is what I’ve been dying to see for this box and they gave me exactly what I wanted! I LOVE UNCHARTED! And its a coincidence that for Black Friday we just acquired PS4 for a rather good deal and it included the Uncharted games and we had started replaying it also.  Well, my husband was because I was busy putting up the Christmas tree and writing. Still, the memories come swarming in. Nathan Drake has THE worst luck.  Everything he touches falls apart when he runs on it or hangs onto it.  Haha! Its really awesome!

Halo 5 2016 Calendar

Arcade Block Arcade Block

I know nothing about Halo, other than its existence.  But I have been thinking about 2016 and having a calender.  The husband seems to like this one a lot 😉

Exclusive T-Shirt: Yoshi “Ugly Sweater”

Arcade Block

Just in time for a lovely Christmas season that’s around.  We don’t have the tradition of wearing ugly sweaters but I can wear an imitation cutesy T-shirt.  It has Yoshi! This shirt is WAY too big for me (since its for my husband) BUT, I claimed it right away, even if its just for trudging around the house with an overly baggy shirt 😉 He’s getting all the nice T-shirts.  I want in on some of the awesome also!


Arcade Block is never a disappointment. They always have gear that just blows you away and for me, amid the funky Angry Birds and mansion keys (which makes for some nice decoration), the T-shirt and Uncharted vinyl figure really won this one over for me! Man, its so awesome! Even that calendar is just absolutely wonderful!

I’m pretty excited about next month’s box too! Street Fighter V (or maybe its 5) and The Last of Us and also Space Invaders! Looks like its going to be more fun times! 🙂

Unboxing Arcade Block & Valentine’s Marathon! :)

Can you believe January 2015 is over? I’m actually pretty happy because this month has been dragging on forever.

Maybe its because its so busy at work or its because I’m really sick right now but regardless, its over with and we’re moving onto February in a few hours (or maybe you’ve already stepped into February).

For the last month or so, I’ve been obsessing over gaming videos on YouTube.  Its actually one of the reasons why the whole posting, watching movies and reviewing movies has been really slow.  I just needed a little break, I guess.  But, if you don’t watch gaming videos, well, there are a few of them which are absolutely hilarious to watch. Now, I’m totally tapping into my nerdy side. I’ll probably do a post on that eventually.

Which leads us to our first line of business.  Mostly because I landed on one of these unboxing videos a while back, I discussed it with my boyfriend and we decided to order the Arcade Block on a 3 month subscription just to see how it is.  You know, if we like what we get and all that.  Everyone seems to post unboxing videos so we sat together and did one.  My boyfriend doesn’t like me to film his face much and I’m ridiculously sick so its more of a shaky camera sweeping through what we got in the box.

Please excuse the nasal voice and clearing my throat, I was trying really hard to not cough.  Once I start, I won’t stop for a while…

Here’s the video:

I was going to edit this video but I just don’t have the brain power to do it right now.  Hopefully you’ll find it mildly entertaining because seriously, we totally loved what we got.

If you can’t see the video, here’s a picture of all the goodies in it:

Oh, and the boyfriend was wrong in the video (not 6 or 7 pieces), that certified Mega Bloks Halo thing had a whole lot of pieces and here’s what it looks like:

Honestly, I’m pretty excited about getting February’s Arcade Block now 🙂

Moving on… February being here tomorrow means Valentine’s marathon from February 1st to 14th.  Last year, I focused on Nicholas Sparks movies.  This year, I’m pretty much winging it.  I do have a general list written up and I’ll be hoping to post at least one review per day.  It’ll be mostly romantic comedies and maybe romance dramas.  I’ve been really neglecting those sorts of movies so I’m pretty happy about it. Especially since my brain on meds can only handle that.

I’m going to leave it at this now.  It sounds like the logical thing to do to relax a little with a rom-com and hopefully let my body rest and maybe feel better tomorrow.  This bug is pretty intense.

Review going up tomorrow, my friends! 🙂 Remember to drop by again.

What do you think about the Arcade Block and/or the unboxing video? What movies do you watch during Valentine’s?
