Wednesday Wish List – Gaming Special
After a weekend being surrounded by gamers, video game previews, cosplayers (dressing as video game characters) and Poros… oh so many Poros, I figured a video game edition of Wednesday Wish List was in order. A lot of these things I was lucky enough to see at London MCM, but some of them have been in the back of my mind for a while.
League of Legends ‘Poro’ Plushie
Okay, so it seems finding the official link to these little guys on the internet is nigh on impossible. If you know the store that was selling them at London MCM, please leave a comment in the comments section below as I would love to share it with everyone. These little guys were THE mascot of London MCM this year and you would be hard done by to find some one who hadn’t seen them that day. These particular Poros actually had a small clip on the base so you could attach them to your clothes. A must have for League of Legends fans, or just fans of cute fluffy things! If you fancy a little bit of crafting, there is a sewing pattern available here.
I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of this game at London MCM alongside ChaosHour and it looks absolutely amazing! I actually signed up for the Beta a while ago, but sadly never got the chance to play it. A good friend of mine, Reaperfox was able to take part however, and she could not speak more highly of it. I haven’t ever been involved in an MMO from the ground up, so I am really excited in getting involved in this one as the gameplay looks fantastic and the art style is beautiful. I am still very much a Guild Wars 2 girl at heart, but it will be nice to be involved in this game with a few of my friends and give me a chance to hang out with Reaper in a social setting rather than always meeting up when we’re working.
Speaking of Reaperfox (and Poros) and linking my first two entries neatly together – I need this piece of cute art in my life. I’ve seen it staring at me at a couple of cons now and I am always meaning to pick it up. Perfect for the League lover in your life – or, again, if you can’t resist their cute little faces!
I love TeeTurtle. Pretty much every design they make is absolutely adorable! But none so much as this lovely little design of Amaterasu from the Capcom game ‘Ōkami’. I haven’t actually played any of the new versions of this game, but I have always been in love with the design of the character, plus look how cute! I managed to pick this shirt up for £20 from TeeTurtle at London MCM and it kind of fitted in perfectly given the theme of painting (and me being there as an artist), but I had to resist buying EVERYTHING else from their store (so many Totoro and Pokemon tees…)
I am not going to lie, I kind of need this in my life. I already have the SteelSeries Guild Wars 2 Gaming Keyboard and it is an absolute beauty. I even have a Guild Wars 2 Mouse Mat (yeah, fangirl, I know), but my sad little mouse that sits on top of it is hardly worthy. I’m not a huge fan of overly complicated gaming mice (mouses? Is it still mice when they’re not animals? I dunno…), I mean, the R.A.Ts are pretty ridiculous. I just like the nice simple, easy to use smoothness of this mouse. It just screams relaxed, but dedicated.
This book has been on my Amazon Wish List since before the game even came out. I followed the concept of Bioshock Infinite pretty closely as the teasers were being released and I absolutely fell in love with its style. I was wary at first as they were leaving Rapture to travel above the clouds and I loved the underwater, art deco style of the previous two games so I really didn’t think I would like this one. But as the creatures and powers slowly got leaked, I knew I was going to fall just as hard for this game as its predecessors. There is nothing like a good concept art book for the coffee table… now all I need is a coffee table big enough for all of my art books…
Well, that’s all for this week folks. What gaming gear are you currently hankering after?
