Happy Demoween, Destructoid!

Just in time for Halloween, we've got several devilish announcements that may be of interest to you, our ghoulish Destructoid readers. First up is a monstrous ten-gigabyte demo that just went up on Steam for Tango Gamework's ...

Contest: Show us your Halloween costumes and win Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! photo
Contest: Show us your Halloween costumes and win Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Contest over! Random winner is jondier. Thanks to all who participated! Those are some good looking costumes :)]

Do you like dressing up for Halloween? I sure do! In fact, just a few years ago I went as Princess Peach. I was SO beautiful. (You can see the sexy evidence above. And that's my wife playing Rock Band in the background. She was dressed as Mr Andy Dixon.)

Anyway, if you're like me, half the fun of dressing up is showing off your costumes, and the other half is winning a free game for doing so! (The third half is scaring children. The fourth half is stealing their candy as they run away.) Well it just so happens that your beloved Robot Overlord found an extra copy of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel hidden in his robo-shoe, and he's decided to hand it out at random to someone who posts a picture of themselves in their costume in the comments below!

Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Friday at 11:59pm Pacific to show us your stuff. All costumes are valid (meaning not just videogame-related ones), so don't feel discouraged even if you're going as Elsa from Frozen like every other f*cking little girl in the world this year. Winner will be chosen at random, but you must hold up a sign that says "DESTRUCTOID" in the picture so we know it's really you. International readers are welcome to enter, though we may ask you to pay for shipping if you win.

Double points if you dress up as Claptrap using only items you found around your house.

Good luck, and have fun!

10 things to enjoy for your gamer Halloween photo
10 things to enjoy for your gamer Halloween
by SeymourDuncan17

[Dtoid community blogger SeymourDuncan17 suggests 10 delightfully spooky things for gamers to enjoy this Halloween.  Give it a read and throw your suggestions in to the comments.  Let's all share what makes us shiver!  Want to see your own stuff appear on the front page? Go write something! --Occams Electric Toothbrush]

Over the years, I've gradually become the kind of person who enjoys Halloween in a passive sense. I no longer dress up and heckle the neighbors for candy (and then more candy), I'm no party-goer, and I don't really make much of a deal about it at all.

I do, however, still absolutely love seeing others enjoy it. Seeing what stupid decorations they've cooked up for this year, seeing children adorably try to pass themselves off as their favorite creatures or superheroes, and, above all else, hearing the single greatest holiday tune grace my local radio once more. (If more Christmas jingles were this fun, it would be a much less depressing holiday. I'd rather hear "Monster Mash" on repeat for hours than listen to just 30 seconds of "Jingle Bells.")

Well, if you are the kind of person who likes to make an event out of Halloween, with friends or just yourself, by marathoning spoooooooky shit, then have I got the shit for you. Churned out for your pleasure like a giant candy corn pumpkin, so make sure you don't take it in all at once. Save those cavities for Halloween night.

Whistleblower is the upcoming DLC for Outlast

Outlast really scared me when I played it back at PAX East earlier this year and it seems to have been a debut success for developer Red Barrels, enough to warrant some DLC. The Canadian studio has revealed the expansion wil...

What are you going as this Halloween?

Last year, I dressed up as Princess Peach for Halloween. I made the costume myself. I was SO. BEAUTIFUL. My brother-in-law made his own Mega Man costume, and my wife went as some dude from the Internet. They were... less beau...

Surprise! Costume Quest is now out on iOS

Just in time for Halloween is Double Fine's Costume Quest, now available for iOS devices. Sweet! It's available for $4.99 on the App Store, and the Grubbins on Ice DLC pack can be picked up for $1.99.  We loved the game when it came out back in 2010 for XBLA and PSN originally. I wonder how well it translates to touch devices.
