Gamersheek and Why You Should Shop With Them*

The title of today’s blog post is pretty self explanatory and to the point… Just the way I like my blog posts!

Today I am talking to you all about Gamersheek, a company I befriended in 2018 and who I have worked with a few times now, including today. I don’t know if you guys are feeling the way I am, but whilst we are in quarantine I have been shopping loads online… I can’t help it! If I’m not playing games, or binging stuff on Netflix, I’m window shopping and making cheeky purchases.

Gamersheek right now is one of the best places to go and shop if you’re a geek like me who loves gaming, repping your favourite game with clothing and merchandise and more!

Gamersheek were founded in 2015 by Sean with his vision being:

To have a company that was the go to place for all the Gaming “Chic”, from hoodies to Pikachu boxers, hence the company name Gamersheek!

Not long after I discovered Gamersheek, they relaunched their website with a new partner and started to sell video games and more!

The way I discovered Gamersheek and started working with them is through my love of Persona 5. I’ve been gifted and bought Persona 5 related merchandise from Gamersheek, with my most recent gifted item from them being Persona 5 Royal*, which has been a great new addition to my home with the lock down!

The one thing I really love about Gamersheek’s website is that they have a “Fandoms” section, so if you’re after a certain fandom, you can go here and find everything listed under it, including games, clothing, figures and more!

Videos games, they stock both consoles and games from Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. They also have a “Brand of the Month” section, which their current brand being Cyberpunk 2077. I know everyone (me included) is excited for this game and although it was originally planned to come out this week, it’s now been pushed back to September. Alongside the game, you can also pick up some figures from Gamersheek, which look pretty damn good.

When I look at pre-ordering or treating myself to a new game, I always make sure to try and get the best price possible and this is something Gamersheek are great at. Their prices are really fair and to make things even better, they offer price matching! For those who may not know what this is, it’s when a store will match a price if you have found it cheaper elsewhere in the UK.

Gamersheek will always try and offer a price match against their competitors, which I think is really good! However, this isn’t something they are doing with video games, which is a shame BUT that being said, their video game prices are amazing anyway.

With anything else on their website, they will price match, unless you have found bootleg products at a cheaper price. It goes without saying why this is a no no…

When you try and request for a price match it will explain in more detail, as well as some points to think of when claiming.

At the moment there aren’t many games that I happen to have on my wish list, especially since Animal Crossing: New Horizons came out last month. However, I do have a few items I like the look of, which I will quickly talk about and link down below:

Catherine Full Body – Nintendo Switch (link– When the original Catherine came out in 2011 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, I wanted a copy on the latter console. I never got one though and I never really regretted it. However, now that the game has been remastered and re-released on the PlayStation 4 AND soon on the Nintendo Switch too, I’m happy to finally pick the game up. It’s by the same people behind Persona 5 and you guys know my feelings on that game series.

I had a look at Animal Crossing related items. I sort of regret not picking up the limited edition Switch console for New Horizons, but at the same time… I don’t! I do however want to get some of the amiibo figures (as well as some more of the cards) so was happy to see that some of them are still available to pick up from Gamersheek, including Blathers and Reece.

Finally I couldn’t venture onto the Gamersheek and not search for Persona 5! I noticed that they are selling the Persona 5 Shujin Academy hoodie, which I may have to treat myself to this at some point… Especially with how my daily “uniform” at the moment is hoodies and leggings or joggers. 😛

Overall I really love what Gamersheek is doing, as they’re slowly moving up in the world of game merchants and I’m so proud as a friend and shopper to see them progress so well! 🙂

Do you think you’ll buy some new games from Gamersheek anytime soon? If so, let me know which games you would like to pick up soon to add to your collection.

I’m off myself now to continue playing Persona 5 Royal… As well as Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Until next time, take care and keep safe. 🙂

Hyper Japan 2015 Part 1

I have struggled to start this post because I just didn’t know how to start it, and due to that it’s actually a day late… Oops! I’m literally just going to throw myself into it and ramble on about things in the order they occurred on the day, which I’ll warn you was long and also picture heavy! I also bought quite a few things at Hyper Japan or was given plenty of freebies, which you can see above, but I’ll go into more detail about those throughout the post.

This post is actually going to be split into two parts, because as I’ve been writing it, it’s just appeared to be WAY too long! So I’ll have part one up today, and part one up tomorrow!

Although we were shattered, we were ready for Hyper Japan and made sure we got up bright an early to get a big breakfast and then head over to the O2 where the event was happening. I’ve never been to the O2 in London before so I was in shock when I saw how big it actually is. But to get there we took the cable cart over which was pretty cool, although I was really anxious when we went over the first time, damn anxiety!

We arrived and the queue was ridiculous… However we had paid a little extra to get fast registration tickets, so we were lucky and didn’t need to wait in that queue. I later read online that it took people an hour to just over it to get into the arena. Not good! We had a bit of trouble waiting in the queue but for once my anxiety didn’t hold me back from voicing my concerns and I spoke to a member of staff about what was happening. Basically, people were pushing in and then laughing at us all who they had pushed past. Me raising these issues got us to the front of the queue, which we couldn’t complain about.

When we finally got inside we were even more excited! The O2 wasn’t that busy but it was sure heaving with restaurants. It just meant if we didn’t wish to eat at Hyper Japan, we had some choices around us.

There were various places you could visit at Hyper Japan including, Eat Japan, Hyper Fringe Market, J-Culture, Hyper Kawaii, Hyper Live, and the first place we visited, Hyper Game & Anime Park. This was probably one of the funnest places for us so it being the first place we went into was pretty awesome.

As the name suggests the Game & Anime Park was of course full of those. Nintendo was of course the main gaming event in there with loads of different demo areas for various different games, as well as a huge stage where members of Nintendo were talking people through new and upcoming games, as well as some cool events happening. We went there to watch about the latest game from Animal Crossing, Happy Home Designer (I’ve already pre ordered it!). I’m a huge Animal Crossing fan so I was super excited when we were told that event was happening on the stage. We watched the whole thing and due to being such awesome people, we were given a free Mario Kart 8 keyring, which I gave my boyfriend.

As well as that there was also a Playstation 4 console where people could demo the new Sword Art Online game, which is coming out in autumn this year! Exciting news for Sword Art Online fans like me and my boyfriend. We both had a go on the demo which latest about ten minutes and it was a pretty straight forward game. There was a huge queue when we first went into the Game & Anime Park so when we went in for a second time, that’s when we got to have a go.

Of course due to Nintendo being there, they also had some of their Amiibo items on display for people to look at, which of course we did. The ones I got most excited for were the yarn Yoshi ones, which have come out to accompany the Wii U game Yoshi’s Woolly World. They come in three colours, my favourite of course being the original green Yoshi. These are made out of real wool so not only do they look like little woolen figures, but they actually are!

Going back to Animal Crossing and the new game Happy Home Designer, these are coming out alongside it so it was nice to have a look at the cards that will be coming out for it. You use these cards to call different villagers and people in the town then and there instead of waiting ages for them. It was also nice to discover that Nintendo are bringing out an add on for old 3DS, and 2DS ‘s where you can use the cards, instead of needing to but the new 3DS.

Not long after the event where the people of Nintendo were talking about the new Animal Crossing game, a Pikachu suddenly waddled past us and over to the main Nintendo section. We followed it to discover that you could have pictures with it, so we got in the queue and got our pictures taken! It was so adorable and I wish we could have gone back and had some more pictures of it. But alas, we had things to do.

Before we left the Game & Anime Park I had a quick picture (or two!) with a massive Colossal Titan head that had been blown up with air for people to take pictures with. It’s from Attack On Titan, one of mine and my boyfriends favourite manga/anime. My boyfriend didn’t bother having any pictures with it, but I made sure to take advantage of it, as it was pretty awesome and the picture I got of me with it is definitely one of my favourites from the day.

We picked up a few bits and pieces from the Game & Anime Park and my boyfriend was lovely enough to buy me a handbag. I had my eye on it since the seller announced they would be selling them at Hyper Japan over on their Facebook page. When I told them I wanted to buy one they were lovely enough to let me look over the bag I got to make sure it was okay and such, which of course it was. It also came in a dust bag which I love! I keep it in there when I’m not using it to keep it nice and fresh looking. It’s a dupe of the Samantha Vega handbag which I’m fine with, as it’s a nice dupe and when I’ve used this bag since me getting it, it’s amazing quality and is really sturdy and great! I’m super pleased with it, and for £35 it was well worth the money. My boyfriend also bought me some green tea matcha Kit Kat’s, which were only 80p each! By far the cheapest ones in the whole of Hyper Japan.

We moved over to the other areas of Hyper Japan and probably spent most of our time there looking around all the various stalls and stands.

This is the Tofu Cute Candy Festival and something we visited twice because we loved it so much! For just £6 we got all these treats to eat and try, so we got two of these. There were various things we got from Pocky, Kit Kat’s, chocolate, sweets, and as you can see on this picture, a green tea matcha mochi, where was delicious. It was a great way to sample things before buying them in the shop next door. The shop was so busy too, it was probably one of the busiest stalls of the day.

As the Saturday Hyper Japan day is split into two separate events people are told they need to leave for half an hour whilst the event is swapped around so before we headed off we ordered a picture to be drawn of us together, as well as picked up a picture of me that someone had drawn in the Fringe Market.

We also decided to grab some food from the Eat Japan section. We bought some tuna onigiri, and to the Japanese onigiri is like a sandwich to us, which I LOVED! They were two for £6, which wasn’t cheap for but for how filling it was, it was really nice. I think we’re going to try and make these ourselves in the future.

Then we headed back to the hotel as we were pretty shattered and wanted to drop off some of the stuff we had bought, as things were beginning to be quiet heavy. The queue for the cable cart was long! But luckily we were alright and soon got into a cart with some people. I felt a lot more relaxed the second time we rode it and I would love to go on it again in the future.

And whilst I was going to continue talking about Hyper Japan, I’m going to stop for today and call this part one out of two. This post is just turning out to be way too long to fit into one post without it not beginning to be boring.

So tomorrow I shall talk about the second half of Hyper Japan in part two!

What do you think of my first Hyper Japan experience so far? Did you go to Hyper Japan? Let me know in the comments.

Until tomorrow, take care all.
