Bonus Digital Loot


Loot Crate is a monthly service in which you receive geek-friendly merchandise at a discount, grouped around a particular theme. This month’s theme was heroes, which is even broader than last month's villains theme. The hero of note for this particular item games.

The card includes three different games, only one of which is really free. Dr. Who is in there. Something about Defense Grid. And Gauntlet. You can never have enough Gauntlet, unless of course you have to pay to get the in-game bonus because you don't have the game in the first place, in which case the reward isn't worth much.

So to recap, Doctor Who: Legacy is an app (available on Apple, Android, Kindle, and Facebook), and Defense Grid and Gauntlet are downloadable on Steam. Defense Grid: The Awakening is available for free with a special code.

I have none of these, and this is stretching the hero theme a bit (I'll grant them Doctor Who at least), so... two out of five stars. Want your own Loot Crate? Sign up at ($19.37/month for one month) and use code SAVE10 to receive 10% off.
