A sincere I-hope-you-haven't-been-affected-by-a-natural-disaster message, and well, if you have...a sincere I'm-sorry-you-have-been-affected-by-a-natural-disaster. Today I've gotten about five bushfire notifications so at least you're not alone. Australia sucks when it gets set on fire! You'll even notice that my photos have returned to being taken in sunlight again, because we've been getting a lot of it now we've hit Spring.
Getting back on track to something a bit more lighthearted, August's RT Box looks to be survival themed. Hey, I only said it was a bit more lighthearted, right? This one is perfectly timed for me since the Day 5 season 2 finale is right around the corner, and if you're unaware, that show is all about surviving the apocalypse. If you haven't seen Day 5, I highly recommend it!
It's coming from Josh Flanagan, who is a key component of what makes Day 5, literally! He learned that it's best to be prepared for the end of days from his neighbour; these lessons long surpassed that man's ability to avoid jail.
Now, whether your apocalypse is a sleepy one, or otherwise, get ready to pack some useful items such as:
- one Day 5 Sandman's Oasis glow in the dark shirt (light blue, with parts that glow!)
- one rechargeable Day 5 flashlight (bright!)
- one AHWU first aid/repair kit (red)
- one 'Headlight Fluid' flask (transparent red)
- one RWBY Dragon Grimm sticker (matte finish)
- one 'Vault Boy' Geoff Ramsey pin
- #7 of 12 of the Season 1 Rooster Teeth Gold Cards, featuring Day 5 (20% were signed by the survivors that make the characters in that show somehow not dead yet).
- one Steam code for Serial Cleaner from iFun4All S.A.
We have our first glow in the dark shirt this month! While it's not the first glow in the dark item (I think last October held the glowing RWBY pins), it's certainly still 100% cooler than non-glow in the dark items. I do like the design and I love the show so there's nothing to lose here, and the shirt is quite thick in terms of material. Apparently the glow gives a hidden message...
Look at that bona fide glow! More than just the 5 glows but it's really hard to get the glow on and take a picture before it goes away.
The flashlight is a really handy item! This one says 'do not fall asleep' on it, the standard Day 5 mantra, and it's super duper BRIGHT! A rechargeable one is also way better than using batteries, as per one of my preferences for the Dualshock 3 and 4 instead of the Xbox 360 and One controllers you charge the LED lights by squeezing the trigger on the side, which can be popped out at your convenience, and then switched on or off. Lovely!
Let's Play...with this first aid kit! Because Achievement Hunter love to break things, this AHWU bad decision repair kit will make sure you're good to go if you too, like the AH crew, love to play with sharp things. It's got gauze, bandages, swabs, needle and thread, other shit, and wow will you want this if you're as dangerous as Gavin is with a grappling hook.
Now, here we have a flask that you can fill with sterilised pee, filtrated water, or whatever the hell you like to drink. But, I direct you to one of the most loved RTAAs ever, Gavin's headlight fluid story, if you've somehow not heard of or seen it. Because it's making a comeback right now!
Mind you, I'm partial to wiper juice myself.
Have a cool-ass RWBY dragon Grimm sticker! It's great to decorate your cold, derelict-looking bunker with. This Grimm appeared in Volume 4; Blake and Sun fought it on the high seas, and it was some anime-style fight alright. Flying all over the joint and there was a lot of falling and catching. But at least you'll catch more eyes with this than Sun ever will with Blake! It has a matte finish which is a first for the RT Box stickers. I also can't read Japanese so I've got no clue what the text says~
Hey, you! Do you like Fallout? Do you like Geoff Ramsey? Well, my answer to the former is no, but to the latter, fuck yeah I like Geoff! In fact, this is "the coolest thing I've ever seen in my entire life" which I'm pretty sure is Geoff's favourite thing to say about everything.
And last, let's not forget the Gold card. This one has stylised art of the Day 5 promotional art I often see on the front page. About 20% were signed, but I didn't get lucky this month either. Ally, Sam, Jake and Ellis stare into the sleep apocalypse wondering whether or not (warning if you haven't watched the show or the latest few episodes definitely do not look at that spoiler!) they can trust Australians.
Their ratings seem to be a little censored. We all know they used hardcore drugs to stay awake, not energy drinks and coffee...well, they did until they ran out.
Oh, by the way, there's a Steam game this month - Serial Cleaner which is like the aftermath of Party Hard from June's box. Clean up dead bodies. Achievement Hunter has a let's play for this if you missed it. The card art is nice, although it's only on one side which is a shame; you can look in my album. Don't bother trying to redeem my code, I already did!
Here's what your survival kit should look like:
Welp, I hope you're still alive, or awake. Don't forget to tune into the Day 5 season 2 finale... whenever that is. I don't do dates, okay?
Don't forget to check out any photos, if you want, in my images > RT Box [insert month/year] album.
Most importantly, remember...
DO NOT FALL ASLEEP.
