Well I have been forced into the Halloween spirit this year as my place of work seems to require it.
The theme is "Batman" this year so I managed to grab a burlap sack from a local coffee shop and I am making into a "Scarecrow Mask" for Halloween. It's coming out quite nice.
Here are a few games to play during Halloween.
The new Beats of Rag Mod based on the Splatterhouse series.
I have not played it yet. I am assuming you go around and kill evil stuff in a messy manner (If they stay true to the source material that is...)
Here is the DCEmu article and the LavaLit article for future reference.
The original RE series is a no brainer when it comes to horror themed games.
RE Code Veronica was the first RE game to do away with 2D backgrounds and was the first RE game to debut on a non-Sony console.
I find that the Dreamcast controller is perfect for survival horror games and thus I enjoy playing this game on the Dreamcast rather than the PS2 or Gamecube.
Find a copy of this lovely gem and proceed to have a good time running away from zombies and biological freaks for awhile.
Bats are really annoying. Hold up your lighter to get rid of them. I played through this game once before I learned that trick.
Illbleed is like starring in a B-Horror movie.
Instead of running away from enemies the gameplay drives you to walk slowly through each level looking for traps and steak dinners to gorge yourself on.
It's fun to play a game that doesn't really take itself too seriously but still manages to be very creepy and bloody at times.
Also: Evil Undead Sonic.
And of course the ultimate Halloween party game.
"Suffer like G did?"
"No! Don't Come!"
We have all heard these lines before and we all love them.
You know what I really wanted to do an in depth article about why this game is so fun but come on.
Zombies with Chainsaws people...
...You can't get more Halloween than that.
Happy Halloween Everyone!
