(Forgotten Post) Entries to the Asylum - Friday 2nd October 2015.

I forgot to actually post about this, even though I mentioned it on the forum. One entry to the Asylum for the 2nd October:

- Fallout Anthology Mini Nuke Edition [PC].

We actually had this preordered as soon as it was announced. Sadly though, our order was cancelled from GAME for unknown reasons. We kinda couldn't afford to get it anyway, so we were a little gutted when 2nd October came and everyone was posting pictures of theirs.

And then...

Our friend Steven showed up. "I come bearing gifts!" he said when I opened the front door. And low and behold, he'd gotten us a copy of it :)

So a huge thanks to Steven for adding this to our collection :)

Did you get this edition? What do you think about it? Would you like to see me unbox it?

Entries to the Asylum - Saturday 3rd October 2015.

Three entries to the Asylum yesterday, two of which were subscription boxes, and one being a purchase I made last month:

- September 2015 "Summon" Loot Crate.
- September 2015 Arcade Block.
- Harold and Kumar Ultimate Collector's Edition [Bluray].

I will be posting unboxings and reviews of all of the above shortly. I shot some photos of them in our livingroom a moment ago, but unfortunately the lighting in here is horrific, so the photos are awful. And you can see all of our crap in the background...

So I will re-do them for our unboxings and reviews and get them uploaded either later tonight or tomorrow :)

So stay tuned!

(Late Post) Entries to the Asylum - Wednesday 30th September 2015.

On Wednesday, we had one entry to the Asylum, and it was a little treat from Media Molecule :)

- Tearaway Unfolded Atoi Poster.

It's an absolutely gorgeous, colourful poster, and we really can't wait to find somewhere to get it framed and displayed :) 

Have you received anything cool lately? Let us know in the comments below!

Entries to the Asylum - Thursday 1st October 2015.

One entry to the Asylum today:

- Journey Collector's Edition [PS4].

A very long awaited release for us, not in the sense that we've ordered after the release date, no, but because we reaaaally wanted to play Journey when it came out on PS3, but we never, ever got around to it. And then when we found out it was being re-released on PS4, we just never bothered and instead decided to wait :)

It's called the Journey Collector's Edition, but it's not a CE in the sense we traditionally see today. It doesn't come with any physical extras, like plushies, replicas, or even just a steelbook. No, it's a Collector's Edition in sense that it has the two previous games from thatgamecompany with it: FlOw, and Flower,

I've yet to play any of the games (as I'm writing this not long after it dropped through the door), but I really can't wait to have a shot :)

Anything new arrived in any of your collections today? Let us know in the comments below!

In-Depth Collection Shots - Vote for what you want to see!

Hi guys!

First of all, DISCLAIMER: I got so beyond bored writing down everything in each image, and it was taking so long that I was worried this would never be posted before it was way too long, and in severe need of an update. So I am uploading as is, so far, and will continue to update titles under each image over the next few days. If you want to know what anything is, in any of the below images, urgently, then please feel free to comment and ask at the bottom of the post!

And continue...

So I took these photos a little while ago now and even though I know you've already seen most/all of what is within the Asylum at the moment (and there are already things missing from these images as more has arrived since I took them!), but I thought I'd give you all some better quality/close-up photos of everything, in order for you to better judge what we have here, and for you all to decide what things you'd like to see us deal with first.

By deal with, I mean you can decide what you want to see us either:

a) Do a photo unboxing,
b) Do a video unboxing,
c) Do a post review (of the game),
d) Do a video review (of the game),
or e) Do a Let's Play video of the game.

Of course, these aren't the only options, if you can think of anything else you'd like us to do (such as comparisons, etc) then feel free to suggest it!

All listings of what are in each image will be written to describe the image from left to right, as much as can possibly be done. I will be listing the edition name (of course, some editions are on display without their boxes, so if pieces of an edition span more than one image, I will point this out by listing in italics), the item type (be it Bluray, DVD, or if it's a game, I'll put what platform it is for) and lastly, I will note which country the edition is from.

One note regarding country is that some of these editions may be available in more than one country. The countries that I list will be the ones that I have purchased the editions from.

When I get down to doing individual unboxings of these editions, I will put more information on those posts regarding country/ies of release.
