Dtoid/Capcom Prize EPIC Unboxing!

I awoke this morning (9:17am to be precise!) to a loud banging, the kind of banging that can only be made when someone decides to ignore the letterbox and bang their fists against the door as if all of Hells minions were after them. I was not best pleased.

However, Imagine my surprise when I opened the door to find a stranger from a distant land had come to visit!

I quickly hurried him inside and showed him to the living room. For whatever reason he did not seem best pleased about his journey (he muttered something about it "being expensive as hell")

but he was my guest and I was going to cheer him up!

I decided to start of with some lovely tea and a chat

However this did not seem to perk him up! Whatever would I do? I did not want to be a bad host to my intercontinental guest! I would have to think of something else!

Perhaps he was bored? A little TV could solve that!

It didn't. So perhaps he would enjoy a dramatic reading of a good book?

Apparently he was not one for literature either! Not to be put off I thought perhaps he might be soothed by music... so I would play guitar for him!

... he was not impressed

Perhaps if I ply him with food and booze he will cheer up? I decided to try!


I was starting to get angry now...

WHAT?!? He didn't like Flame Grilled Steak flavoured McCoy's? The mightiest of all crisps? That was the last straw. I'm not proud to admit it, but I lashed out at him!

As I expected torrents of blood and innards to come flying out, I was surprised to find goodies inside!

A Monster Hunter Tri poster signed by everyone at the Dtoid/Capcom event!


I don't think this fella survived the trip, he is naught but bones! I will have to display him somewhere in honour of his memory!

I assume this says "Make your Wii/Wiimote look AWESOME" in Japanese.

Hey! Someone wrote all over this game!

A T-shirt with a man with a chainsaw on it! Suitable for all kinds of formal events like birthdays, weddings...



Wait, what was this at the bottom of the pile?

A Street Fighter IV snuggie! I would have to try this on later... ok I knew I wouldn't get away with that, so I decided to recreate the box art!

Ok and one more just to keep it sexy...

Why yes, I am single ladies!

Ok in all seriousness I'd like to thank Dtoid and Capcom for these awesome prizes! This is the first contest I've ever won (except for that pool contest I won in Spain, I totally whupped that English kid!)!

Thank you! :D
