Gameroween 2013 – Video Game Characters that make awesomely mediocre costumes (Zombie)

You know people I try to be original with my choices, think outside the box and all that; but I also know which way the wind is blowing and that wind has the smell of putrid, funky, rotting Zombie in it. Thanks to shows like the Walking Dead and video games like Dead Rising, Dead Island and the Last of Us, Zombies are here to stay for now. As such it’s more than likely a few of you are going undead this year (like you did last year, and the year before that) so might as well make it a choice for today. What kind of zombie? Take your pick: fast (infected) zombies, slow (classic) zombie, hunters, boomers, smokers, tanks, witches, T-Virus, G-Virus, C-Virus, Las Plaga, super heroes zombies, etc, etc, etc. What to wear? It doesn’t matter, any old thing will do, as long as its blood stained and has rips here and there. Of course what zombie costume would be complete without say brains or screeching every so often. And get there you go people one Zombie, the Pumpkin-Headed Turkey Claus of costumes (and at least that one was original).

 

 

 

This just in (Or not): Diablo III Auction Houses sees its last days

D-III-AH

 

Yep after a year and some change of life on the PC, and only a month and some change on the consoles the powers that be decided that on March 18, 2014 the cash/gold Auction Houses would be discontinued for Diablo III. Now for those that don’t know Auction Houses is an in game service that allows players to put weapon, armors, items, etc, on sale for other players to buy. They started with in game money (gold) but later allowed real money AH to be available. Depending on who you talked to the Auction Houses were a good thing or a bad thing. Good because it helped players to fully spec their characters without grinding for hours on end. However the bad is often gold farmers, price inflation, ninja looting, etc. Whatever our guesses could be Blizzard’s reason for shutting it down is because it defeats the point of ‘kill monsters to get cool loot’ – which is does, sort of, and  in their next expansion, ‘Reaper of Souls’, that the loot system will be much better. So people if you have any unfinished deals to broker within AH best to get them out of the way now – March will be here sooner than you think.
