It's the debut of Amber's Unboxing Series!


December's Loot Crate exposed

[Accompanying music by Alphadeus]

When I first heard about Loot Crate, I didn't think it would take off. A company sends you random stuff once a month? For someone like me, that's a nightmare. The inventory box of my life is already completely full. Any time I get something new, I have to toss something out to make space. The last thing I want in life is another random drop to test my decision making skills. The same thing happens to me in EarthBound all the time, but in real life, there is no Mach Pizza to call for storage assistance. You could say that they are the opposite of Loot Crate in that way. 

So that's why I didn't get into Loot Crate, but they seem to be doing just fine without me. With hundreds of thousands of subscribers, it's clear that they offer a service that people are interested in. But as successful as they are, we know that most of the people alive today are not Loot Crate subscribers, despite the fact that literally everyone in the world wants to know what's in those darn crates. If you tell someone that there is a crate, they are going want to know what's in it. That's just human nature. 

With that in mind, we asked our pal Amber Hunt if she wanted to start a little Loot Crate unboxing series with us, and she happily agreed. To be clear, Amber is not being paid by Loot Crate for this, and is not obligated in any way to say anything nice about their wares. She'll review every crate honestly and fairly, just as Dtoid does with the games we receive for review.

If this goes well here, Amber may go on to do more in-depth videos with Dtoid in the future, so stay tuned. Thanks again to Amber for taking this on, and welcome to the team!
