The Worst Halloween Costumes I Ever Wore -



1. Gay Robin

The boy wonder was a role model to a young Wrenchfarm. Daring, smart, and able to handle the worst convicts and psychos of Gotham City, Robin embodied all the qualities I wished I could in my most private fantasies.

But his costume was a custom made battlesuit of integrated high-tech gadgets and bulletproof super-weave. Mine was basically a pair of ladies tights and a red tunic that Velcroed together at the crotch. 

I never felt further from the Tim Drake ideal than I did fidgeting with my Velcro crotch desperately praying that nobody was watching. 



2. Dime store Link/Robin Hood/Peter Pan

Zelda 2: The Adventures of Link left an indelible mark on my childhood. It was a game I was obsessed with and the first thing I bought with money I earned myself. It was only natural that I would want to dress like my hero for the Holidays.

Unfortunately, there might have been a little break down in communication between me and my mom. What I ended up with that year wasn't the iconic green tunic, glimmering sword, and Triforce emblazoned shield of my hero, but a sad mash up of fantasy characters. Like a Dollarstore knock-off toy trying to avoid copyright law.

A green corduroy cape, a tasseled brown shirt, green tights (again... hum, what was it with my mom and those?), a cheap plastic bow and arrow set that snapped in my hands, and the pointy green cap of the Boy Who Never Grew Up. I limped up and down the street for a handful of houses before calling it a night. Link may always finish his adventures with a full item kit and a wallet swelling with rubies, but I had only a handful of candy corn and a few spare candy necklaces to mark my sad journey. 



3. Cardboard Robot

The classic old school robot. I rocked this look when I was four years old, proving that we never really change.

Tin foil plating, a coat hanger antenna, Pringle can arms, my costume was actually pretty swag. 

Sadly, it provided ABSOLUTELY ZERO protection from a devastating gut punch delivered by the neighborhood bully. It was at that tender young age that I realized appearances don't matter unless you can back them up. After all, what kind of killer robot lets some future multiple-offender/gas attendant take his candy?

I swear, if I ever have a kid, his/her robot costume will have a functioning plasma pistol.



* - I would watch this movie.



A - The true Zen master finds balance in his life - by dicing up all the FPS games with the occasional Fighter or 3rd Person Adventure

A - But mud slinging is a time honored tradition in this industry!

A - Things seem creepy, but at this point we just don't know enough (anything) to really get upset. We'll have to wait and see how all this drama plays out.

P - Pocketoid is back with a new website and a contest! Also, I think they are a wee bit excited about the Pokemens.

A - Buying a console at launch? What do you think this is, the mid-90's?

A - Really couldn't disagree more with Jack and his opinion of Gone Home and Mass Effect 3 (that multiplayer was crazy fun), but I appreciate that he found something to celebrate about these games.



C - Are you the very best? The best there ever was? Maybe you should prove like a real man - by throwing small innocent animals at each other to fight to the death.

C - Hey, it's me! Check out my SPOooOOooKY Halloween give away for your chance to win a few frighteningly good games!

C - Some Dungeon Dasher codes up for grabs! Might be gone by now, but you never know!



E - The Spark Rising Kickstarter is concluding with a bang, a 48 hour live stream to drum up that last push!



R - The bizarre rating system used in this blog truly does remind me of the criminally insane.

T - I've been enjoying GTA: Online, but this sounds like some straight up bullshit.



F - Check out this interview with the creator of the Walking Dead.



V - Scary Granules has some LP vids I unfortunately did not have time to watch. Look fun though!
