August 2016 Arcade Block Review Wrap-Up
We loved the retro video games featured in the August Arcade Block. Our favorite item is the Tetris heat change mug. When it’s cool, the mug just shows a few lines that need to be completed. As the mug is filled with hot coffee or water, more lines appear and more of the classic game screen is revealed.
The USB Game Controller from Retro Link is a fun way to play some of our favorite Super NES games on the PC. It’s a plug-and-play controller so you just need to plug the controller into a USB port and load up your favorite SNES game. The controller has the familiar D-pad, A, B, X, Y buttons and the Start and Select buttons.
The collectible Super Mario figure from K’Nex and the Zelda Eye of Truth t-shirt are perfect companions for retro game play. We got the Yoshi figure in our Super Mario blind bag.
The last item in August’s Arcade Block video game box is the Funko Five Nights at Freddy’s vinyl figure. This collection features 14 different characters, including Freddy, Foxy, Bonnie, Chica, and more.
