5 Things I Want from Bethesda’s New Online Store
For too long fans of the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series have not had a convenient outlet to buy our merchandise at. Until now all the extra money we haven’t spent on video games has burned a whole in our pockets. But don’t worry, today Bethesda released their new online store.
Even though I’m a huge fan of Bethesda I’m not a huge fan of video game apparel and collectibles. How much do I have to spend for something I’m probably never going to use? And the store might not have a huge variety of merchandise yet. But regardless, I’ve already found a couple of things I’m debating with myself into getting.
Limited Edition Lithographs ($40-$50)
Bethesda has 4 different limited edition Lithographs from Skyrim, Fallout, and Dishonored. Usually collectible artwork doesn’t interest me. It’s not that good of a collectible when everyone who buys the deluxe edition of a game gets a copy of mass-produced reprinted cover artwork. But the Lithographs on Bethesda’s site are actually pretty cool looking, and something I’d hang on my wall. Even better, each one of them is 1 of only 300 prints made, so your artwork is somewhat of an actual collectible.
Doom T-Shirt ($18)
Bethesda’s online store offers some stuff from older franchises, not just their newer popular brands. Franchises like DOOM, Quake, and Wolfenstein all have an item or two available. But of the older franchises the DOOM shirt is the coolest thing available. It’s simple, old school style is something I could see myself wearing on a regular basis. Plus, what better of a game to represent than DOOM?
Coffee Mug ($12)
There’s a couple of options for a stylish coffee mug that will make your work makes super jealous. You can keep it classy with Dishonored’s Mark of the Outsider mug, stay positive with the Fallout Vault Boy Mug, or show your pessimistic side with a Skyrim “I Hate Morndas” cup.
Vault 101 Hoodie ($58) or Shoes ($85)
The coolest stuff from Bethesda’s store definitely comes from the Fallout section. The post apocalyptic spin on 1950s designs make for a lot of cool clothing. But the Vault hoodie and shoes are a more modern representation of Fallout attire. It’s a little pricey, and not technically released yet, but they look pretty sweet. Only the most hardcore of Fallout fans would recognize you wearing Vault 101 clothing.
Grognak the Barbarian T-Shirt
What’s the coolest item Bethesda released with their new store? The Grognak t-shirt. The fictitious comic book in Fallout who’s cover has a barbarian fighting a serpent eagle dragon in the lair of the virign eater is a funny and useful in-game item. This shirt would be cool even if it didn’t have anything to do with Fallout, but it’s connection with the series makes it that much better.
