Team Fortress TwoOoOO Crowdsourcing Halloween

Good news: Valve are working on a new "major update" for their free-to-play FPS Team Fortress 2 [official site]. Bad news: it's not a Halloween update. This new update has left the TF2 team too busy to create another all-spooking, all-devilling spectraltacular (boo!) so they're turning again to the community. This year's Halloween update will largely be pieced together from spooky maps, weapons, items, taunts,…

Scratch And Spook: Ghost Coin

I've kissed noses, tweaked noses, stolen noses, and once even broke my own nose dancing to Total Eclipse of the Heart. After playing Ghost Coin, I'll add 'scratching a box's nose out of existence with a coin' to my list of Pleasant Nose-based Activities. It's a short, browser-based, charming, and free game about scratching away layers of reality with the eponymous spectral coin. It's one…

Team Fortress BOO! Halloween Brings Bumper Cars

The thrills, chills, and double kills of the fairground are now open to all mercenaries who aren't afraid of being murdered in a wizard's ploy to invoke dark powers. This year's Scream Fortress Halloween update brings TF2 to a carnival not built on an ancient burial ground - that's the problem. Here, it'll make more sense if you read the comic. This year's Halloween map…

Ural ‘Orrible Deaths: First-Person Spooker Kholat

The Dyatlov Pass incident is one of those strange and horrible tragedies you'd read in a book filled with tales of spontaneous human combustion, the Mary Celeste, ball lightning, Roanoke Colony, the Lead Masks Case, star jelly, and other mysteries that the author's not saying aliens did, right, but aliens probably did it. Nine hikers died in Russia's Ural mountains in 1959 after cutting their…

Team Fortress TwoOoOOooOo Halloween Events Return

I wouldn't say 'boo' to a ghost. That's rude and, worse, trite -- like saying "Aha!" to Steve Coogan. No, if I e.g. met a ghost rattling chains I might ask "What's shaking?" Top gag. My problem is a short temper with ghosts. The last time jangling disturbed my sleep, I woke the whole block yelling "Hey! That's enough of your ghost nonsense! Get outta…

The Reel Ghostbuster: Spooky Recordings In Sylvio

I would very much like to play a video game where I'm a paranormal investigator sneaking around haunted places, trying to record messages from the dead on my trusty reel-to-reel recorder. Sylvio has that. But, oh and it's a big but, it also has a wacky aerosol-powered shotgun loaded with ammunition from rusty old bolts to potatoes to blast ghosts. That is somewhat outside the…

Paddling Ghoul: The Sims 4 Patching In Ghosts And Pools

Ghosts were missing from The Sims 4 at launch, but we all know that just because we haven't seen a ghost, that doesn't mean one's not there. Going invisible is sorta their 'thing'. Not seeing a ghost is almost proof that you have one. The Sims 4 definitely does now. Maxis made ghosts materialise with a ritual content patch yesterday, the first of three big…
