Even though I play video games occasionally I don’t think you could call me gamer. It’s probably only within the last year or so that learned what leet or l33t or 1337 meant. That said, I did know some of the 1337 speak, I just didn’t know that it had been classed as 1337 speak. Hey, I’m in my thirties. A few weeks ago I received a request from Modern Gamer to review their t-shirts so I asked my gamer friend and he selected the Noob Slayer t-shirt. Of the five shirts (there were only five at that time) it was probably the only one I’d wear either. Not because of the type of design though. I liked their logo shirt but I don’t want to be a walking billboard and the other shirts, I didn’t really understand. I know that Lord of the Three Rings must be a Lord of the Rings parody (Doh!) but I just don’t get it.
The shirt itself as seen in the picture worn by yours truly is a Gildan. When I tried it on I was pleasantly surprised. The design has a pretty cool vintage effect to give it that well worn look. To be honest I think that if I caught a gamer wearing this shirt I would think he truly was a nerd but because I am not, the irony lets me get away with it. But hey, what do I know about what gamers want to wear.
Modern Gamer Shirts currently has only six different designs including a Modern Gamer logo t-shirt but they are trying to add a designs bi-weekly. They said they see “modern gaming shirts with a vintage / grunge twist” and that is the theme of the store. They use POD Printfection to sell their shirts and they are selling them very cheaply with a $5 discount at the moment. That comes to about $15 dollars plus shipping, so if you want a good value, good quality gamer t-shirt get over there now while the discount is still being offered.
While you are over there too, if you are a gamer they have something interesting going on behind the t-shirt store. I don’t know what it is because it is still in beta but they say in 94 days the face of gaming will change. If you just can’t wait you can try get an invitation to Modern Gamer Beta but hurry or you might just have to wait.
