Some people like Christmas, and others favor Valentine’s or Thanksgiving. And if you’re a verbally abusive alcoholic like my cat, Sprinkles, you’re definitely keen on St. Patrick’s Day. But when it comes to video games, Halloween is where the good stuff’s at.
GamesBeat has rounded up a choice selection of games that are celebrating tomorrow’s festivities with some in-game events and special content. You can also check out Steam’s Halloween sale for some discounted horror titles, including all five episodes of The Walking Dead game.
League of Legends is getting plenty of Halloween love with a new Champion (Elise, the Spider Queen), a haunted remake of the Twisted Treeline map, and limited time-only "Sinister Skins" for select characters.
Firefall – Night of the Melding Celebration
Hot on the heels of last week's epic Firefall Fest event, Red 5 Studios has launched some Halloween celebrations in its free-to-play FPS MMO.
Players can purchase special Halloween-themed items such as Jack-o-Lanterns and Bat Bombs for amusing effects, but the Trollstone, which marks the "final resting place" of anyone who dared to challenge you to a duel is an instant classic. Special masks are also available for a limited time.
The Super Meat Boy and H. P. Lovecraft-inspired action platformer They Bleed Pixels is on sale for a mere $3.39, and also gains a free bonus level titled "All Hallow's Eve."
Mojang has released the Pretty Scare Update for the PC version of Minecraft. This sizable update adds a variety of items and enemies. The new beacon item will be especially helpful for finding key locations after digging your way out of a mine 10 miles from where you started.
Check out the update's trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-tzEu02P-k#!
Not to be outdone by its older PC brother, the XBLA version of Minecraft has released a Halloween Skin Pack with a catch! All of the 55 skins were donated by various game developers around the world and 100% of the proceeds will go to charity.
Dead or Alive 5's scantily-clad ladies are getting even more scan...ti...lier... with the release of multiple DLC costume packs. Normally I'd be on the frontlines bitching about over-priced content that used to be free in previous iterations, but GamesBeat is giving away lots of codes for the DLC to help cut down on your virtual bikini and bunny outfit spending:
Team Fortress 2 – Scream Fortress
Team Fortress 2 is kicking off its fourth annual Scream Fortress event with two new achievements, magical item drops, and zombies to replace the mechanical hordes in Mann vs. Machine.
Nexon's Dragon Nest is upping the cute with limited edition Halloween costumes, pets, and titles. These items are on sale in the Dragon Vault until November 7, and will help you be ready when the "Fete of All Flesh" rolls around. I'm not sure I *want* to be ready for whatever that is....
Nexon's iOS shooter Combat Arms: Zombies gets a big Halloween content update featuring a new map and new guns, plus it's free.
