Unboxing: Gamer M for Mature Block [January 2017]

Its time for another unboxing!

Its been a good bit since we’ve had an Arcade Block unboxing and this is the revamped version, now called Gamer Block! Except in this one, I chose the M for Mature version and not the Everyone version. I can’t remember what the actual name is. The stuff is pretty awesome this time. Check it out!

Thanks for watching!

Unboxing: Arcade Block [August 2015]

We’re back with another unboxing! Losing one subscription means we’re just with the Arcade Block subscription for this and September.  I’m working on getting another subscription after that so it’ll be back to eventful unboxing 🙂

August had a ton of email reveals from the team at Nerd Block telling us about all the games that the gear would feature.  It had me all hyped up! When it finally arrived on Friday, my fiance and I sat down to do the unboxing on Saturday morning!

Let’s check it out!

Arcade Block [August 2015]


Boston Vault Dwellers


Anyone has an idea what Boston Vault Dwellers are? We both didn’t.  Its supposed to be “the best damn team in the post-apocalyptic league”.  I need to research that a little.  Sounds fun 😉


retro magazine

Metal Gear Solid! Yay!

I’m a huge MGS fan! We got the magazine and started discussing whether we had missed one of the newer games. Suffice to say, we’ve kind of fallen a little behind in the last year or two with our lives being literally moved into a new place and our schedule having a little flip around.  But things are settling in and we’re making time to do more gaming here and there.  Maybe we’ll pull out MGS and give it a go! 🙂

I can’t wait to read this magazine! It went right away to our night table! 🙂



The fiance already snatched this up for playing Gran Turismo Racing.  Apparently that makes him sweat.  Well, that’s because I never understood such a strategic racing game.  Haha! But, to be super honest, playing video games taught me about counter-steering and that is super useful during winter on snowy days. Man, I want to play some Need for Speed…

Product of the Month: MORTAL KOMBAT X PLUSH

Arcade Block


We haven’t gotten into the Mortal Kombat X. We don’t own either of the consoles it was released on.  Its a work in progress to save funds for it.  Regardless, Sub-Zero is pretty iconic.  I did play Mortal Kombat when I was young with my cousin.  That is what happens when you grow up with only one cousin near your age and is a guy. Haha! But, it was fun.  I never realized how brutal it was until I saw those gameplay videos of Mortal Kombat X.  Has it always been that brutal especially those finishing moves?


Arcade Block Arcade Block

I’ve already shared my love for these soundtracks that pop up in the Arcade Block.  I loved the instrumental one a few months back.  I’m not too sure about the past one but this one sounds pretty good.  Its from “chiptunes rockers” Anamanaguchi.  I’ve never heard of them but if they are mixing old school with rock successfully as the info card says that I’m down 🙂

Shirt: Counter-Strike

Arcade Block

Notice the funny details? Its not clear but you should still catch it.

These shirt from ShirtPunch are seriously so awesome.  The way they mix it up so clever and brilliant.  Seriously, can you see what they messed with? I noticed it right away and was like, wait, isn’t that supposed to be….” Can you see it?

As an addition…

We got an announcement of a game one of the gear will be based on.

Arcade Block

I know a few of you will be interested in seeing what its going to be.  I have yet to enter the world of Hyrule and Zelda and all that awesomeness I hear so much about 🙂

That’s it for August Arcade Block!
Did you like it? What appealed to you most?

Happy Monday, my lovelies! 🙂

Unboxing: Arcade Block May 2015

These unboxing posts are turning out to be quite a hit here.  That makes me happy because I also enjoying putting those together a lot!

Arcade Block has failed me rarely and this one, before we even got the box, the newsletter said that we’d get an item from Metal Gear Solid.  I’m not much of a gamer because I’m really bad at games and patience kind of runs out after a while but I’ve watched the play through of MGS two or three times already.  Its a long game so it kind of makes sense. We’re still working on finishing MGS 3 on PS2.  At least I am and should.  Anyways, that doesn’t matter but I love MGS.  That’s what I’m trying to say!

I’m excited! Are you?

Plus, I had to wait a whole weekend away in Toronto before coming home to unbox this!!

Arcade Block (May 2015)

Zelda Life Jar

Arcade Block

These Zelda items are quite plentiful but excuse me, this jar is cute.  Its like a little mason jar.  I don’t know what to put it in but it is adorable! 🙂

South Park figurines: The Grand Wizard (Arcade Block Exclusive)

Arcade Block

Maybe you might judge me for not really caring about South Park all that much but in my defense, this used to air really late at night and I had strict parents so I watched like 10 minutes of one episode, I think.  I know who the characters are and that’s about my extent of knowledge.  South Park items aren’t really what I’m looking at, especially when I wonder if they are considered arcade items.  But then, I like collectibles so yay?

Kick Punch Magnet

Arcade Block

Mics and Playstation buttons symbols and Kick Punch…Hmmm.  Not sure what this is for but its on my fridge.

Metal Gear Solid Foxhound Cap

Arcade Block


That’s all I have to say!! 🙂

Blue Shell On Board Car Sign

arcade block

Huge Mario fan here.  I might have mentioned that a few times before.  I actually looked at my boyfriend and asked if he wanted to put that in the back of his car.  And he asked me back, “Are you for real?” or something along those lines.  Then I kind of laughed.  Maybe I’ll put it on a window in the house…Hahaha!!!

Creatures T-Shirt

arcade block

My best guess on this one is that this is a Final Fantasy creature shirt.  Not sure which one.  The boyfriend is way more into these RPG/strategy games and has played almost all of them, tell me its from different games.  I like Final Fantasy and I like pixelated things because thats kind of my time when I played games (not that I don’t like the awesome looking games now), so this shirt is awesome! My boyfriend is already wearing it on the first week of getting it so that shows that he likes it a bunch too! 🙂

Another winner box right here! Cap, Shirts, MGS, FF, Mario and that cute as a button Zelda Jar? I’m in love with it all! 🙂

What are your thoughts on it? Are you fan of Final Fantasy and/or Metal Gear Solid?
