    Ok, I just saw the spooky Gbatemp logo, and halloween is just 10 days from now, so what you fellow gamers going to do?
    I used to dye my hair green or red and party that weekend, or night if it was friday, but I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do this year, lol.
    Also, you gotta post what costume your going to wear if you do that kind of thing.
    I was zombie girl last year [​IMG] : I whitened my skin, wore ripped clothes and did a pretty convincing "cut"/red line across my neck and some other bloody effects on my jeans etc.

    Ok guys, time to post yours, or past stories of spoooooky and scaaaaary halloween [​IMG]

    I shall wake up and after seeing to the pooh, sick and piss from the baby I will hopefully play Dementium: The Ward if its been dumped. Then I shall play Half-Life mod They Hunger and then RE4 Wii.

    Then me and that top piece of totty I live with will watch a load of horror films and then end the night by giving any kids who ring our doorbell Super Aids Herpes infected sweeties.

    I'll probably play RE4 Wii for the first time! Yeah yeah, thats right! I didn't have it for the GC!!
    Or maybe not if I play it tomorrow in my lunch break... Anyhow, lots of killer-zombie action these days for sure.

    Yup, in the place where I live know it's a tradition to do some altars for the dead ones, there are even contests on schools [​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Hanal Pixan it's the Mayan name.

    And this is one of the most "normal" celebrations, it gets really hardcore in places like Michoacan:

    Well, that's kinda normal IMO [​IMG] I'm more concerned about the parties at the cemeteries.
    We have 2 days of celebration -November 1 and November 2-and we have...sugar skulls!!
    [​IMG]

    Also Dia de Muertos inspired Grim Fandango..so it rocks : P

    In 10 days I should have my iPod Touch so I expect I'll be playing with that until 2.00am so nothing.

    Oh, I might be on trick-or-treat duty, which sucks. The kids in my street are rude little fuckers who are horrible to everyone all year and then Halloween comes and it's like, "Hey, give us free sweets 'cause we got a sheet over our heads"

    I'm not doing anything. Mainly because I'm 23. Maybe I'll treat myself to a pack of sweets. Those fuckings kids that come knocking aren't getting any! [​IMG]

    Living in Houston I see this tradition from time to time as well. Actually, I remember when I was in Jr. High School taking a Spanish class that we made sugar skulls.

    Im going to play the crap out of Clive Barkers Jehricho and Hellgate London then maybe I will play a little grim fandango. After that I will prob dance with my pagan next door neighbors who wear goat skulls on their heads.

    Pretty dull really.
