It’s that time of year again, when a chilling wind howls in the darkness outside, a time when we see skeleton and zombie yard decorations being raised up overnight. It’s finally Halloween season! Last year, I embarked on a thematic quest to play through some spooky, Halloween-inspired games, both old and new. I decided to use the title of “Blogtober” because….I…thought it was clever at the time and it seemed to fit the schtick I was aiming for. This was also my way of showing the rare bit of ambition on my WordPress site and posted two articles each week about the games I had been playing, culminating with playing Luigi’s Mansion 3 for its Halloween release date. For this year I wanted to give the concept another try, so I intend to post something every Monday and Friday of the month, with tomorrow and the following Mondays being a specific game that I’m playing for the first time, and Fridays will be a few random ideas related in some way to the Halloween season. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I have spent the past several months streaming here and there on Twitch, with the past two months being a little more consistent in frequency. In addition to posting articles here on WordPress, I have planned on streaming a few scary games as well. I will attempt to remain on my current “schedule” of streaming Tuesday and Thursday mornings starting around 8:15 a.m. CST and on Saturday and Sunday evenings somewhere between 5:30-6:00. Tomorrow morning I will be finishing up Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers(my game swap pick sent over by Kim from Later Levels in exchange for Banjo-Kazooie) and I recently began yet another attempt at actually completing a From Software game with Bloodborne. I will be concluding the month with a playthrough of Silent Hill 2 on Halloween. Here are the games that I am/will be playing through and writing about here on WordPress, as well as the games I will be streaming over on twitch.tv/GamingOmnivore…
I will get the first blog post up tomorrow night and the next game will be on Monday! Do you have any specific games you’re planning on playing during October? If so, let me know! My next objective on the agenda is to check out the Halloween update in Animal Crossing…
Thanks for reading!
