And the Dice were d6… Unboxing February’s Harley Quinn Atomic Loot

We’ve told you about Atomic Loot when they launched last month, and we’ve even unboxed their Star Wars-themed debut. For this month’s Atomic Loot, our friend Alanna pre-ordered it, and here she kindly reviews it in a guest post.

When I first heard that there was a new nerd subscription box in town, I was madly excited. My love for subscription boxes stems from my time in the US when I was receiving all sorts of different boxes in the mail, including of course, Loot Crate.

When Atomic Loot announced that they were releasing a Harley Quinn-themed box, I decided to take the plunge and pre-order a box – after all, I love Harley and I always want to support local ventures. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so.

I’ve been waiting to get my grubby mitts on Evolve since it was first announced – and my first playtest was nothing short of mind-blowing. Almost an entire year later since that first dip of the toes into Evolve’s primordial soup, I’ve had a few more chances to visit Evolve’s home planet Shear and grab a taste its crisp jungle air, and what a trip each visit has been. Today marks the launch of Evolve, so let’s dive right in and see what you can expect.

Review: Grim Fandango Remastered

Reliving an old classic like Grim Fandango can be a perilous situation – the memories one has of it would have long been dusted with a thick veneer of nostalgia, and sometimes revisiting the past just reveals how odd our tastes were growing up. Unlike recent remakes like The Last Of Us or Grand Theft Auto V, what we remember of what was then a game of the year contender can be extremely unreliable, so can reliving the adventure really be a positive affair?
