Back in October, MJ linked a time-limited funding drive from Pirate101 that included one of my major weaknesses: adorable plushies. In this case, they were fox pirate and pig ninja pigs. The price wound up staying my hand (and I don’t blame KingsIsle; it just costs a lot to make custom plushies). That – and not particularly wanting to store a whole bunch of toys in a small house – is usually what stops me from buying too much merch from MMOs, but I sure did think hard about getting that fox for my kids!
I thought it would make for an interesting discussion today, particularly since it’s Black Friday and everyone’s busy consumerizing right now. How much MMO and gaming merch do you actually own? What types are you most likely to buy? Is it physical stuff, or do you want in-game perks too?
