Happy Halloween! Halloween is always an exciting time in the video game world. For starters, there are all kinds of in-game Halloween events, including spooky outfits, challenges, environments and more. Steam’s Halloween sale is always one of their biggest sales of the year, making it a great time to pick up some games you’ve been waiting to buy. Finally, it’s a time of year that’s bound to remind you of certain gaming experiences; we would be remiss to discuss Halloween games without mentioning Corey’s Chiller obsession. For me personally, I’m always brought back to Kingdom Heart’s Halloween Town and the eeriness of Lavender Town in the first generation Pokémon games.
Since Halloween also marks the end of October, it’s a good time to reflect on some of the game launches and other fun at Sandbox over the last month. Most importantly, Sandbox celebrated Shaun and Val’s wedding this past weekend in NJ! Almost the whole crew was able to make it, and we all had a blast!
