Rejoice! Avatar Halloween clothes coming to Xbox Live!

When I thought that this year’s Halloween might pass without some downloadable clothes for my Avatar, I was so upset that I threw up vomit all over my hands and shirt. I then wailed like Satan’s own baby and smashed my head into a concrete paving slab for eight days until my skull was soft and I wept tears of blood from my eyeholes. So, thank Christ for Microsoft, because Halloween clothes are here!

For 240 Microsoft Points, you can download a variety of spooky costumes, dressing up your mawkish little turd as a witch, a vampire, a werewolf and a mummy. Some of the costumes lack the required masks, which will cost an extra 80 Points because, hey, why not spend your fake money on fake clothes?

The costumes look cool, but it’ll be a cold day in Hell before I ever consider exchanging anything of monetary value for an Avatar garment. Still, there are people who are far stupider than I am, so expect to see Microsoft pull this stunt every time a holiday rolls around. Goodie for us!
