October is Spook Month on Nintendo Life

Posted by Zach Kaplan

Frightful Fridays and Scary Saturdays ahead

As we all know, October 31st is All Hallows Eve, popularly known as Halloween. It's a night when some of you will dress up in your favourite fear-inducing garb and haunt the town, others will dress up as well but instead go to screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and others still will stay home and watch Ernest Scared Stupid.

It's also a month during which you'll be able to visit Nintendo Life and check out reviews of spooky Wii, DS and, mostly, retro games every Friday and Saturday. We'll also be bringing you a few fear-inducing features along the way. Which terrifying titles can you look forward to us evaluating? We'll never tell... but if you're feeling adventurous, you can periodically check the recently uploaded screen shots – if you dare!

We're all lucky!!! during Spook Month at Nintendo Life... because of all the great spooky reviews and features...

Ahh, if only there was a Rocky Horror game... then I could have centred the article around that... IMAGINE THE PUNS!!!!

Hah, I'll be dressing up as Freddy Krueger for Halloween. I'm ordering a hand made glove for $100, getting latex liquid, the works! And I just ordered 15 Scary/Halloween movies off Amazon. And my spooky(lol) halloween games of choice are going to be Rondo of Blood(for the first time) Resident Evil Zero: Archives, Dead Space Extraction and Kirby Super Star Ultra. Can't forget tons of halloween junk food, halloween music, decorations and random Halloween toys and props from various stores! And dare I say it? Halloween Martini's?lol

And haha, I actually ordered Ernest Scared Stupid, I LOVED that movie growing

TIME WARP IS AMAZING Now I wish my iPod didn't break. I'd love to play the 360 with some time warp action going on.



Kimiko said:

Meh. Halloween is only on 31 October. Why do we have to have the whole month spooky themed? :/



Zach said:

Don't worry Kimiko, we'll still bring you all the non-spooky stuff too. You don't have to pay attention to the spooky retro reviews if you don't want to.

I 2nd that
if you never played Superman 64, then your missing out on all the inside jokes



Delso said:

I bet they will put up the Castlevania games, those were spooky, especially the one on the Nintendo 64!



CanisWolfred said:

Ah yes, Gothic month, my favorite month of them all. The only month where I can revel in tales of terror and torment without people thinking I'm weird.>:3 I should get a new Avy ready. Looks like it's back to masks for me.

PSICOffee said:

I wonder if the moon from Majora's Mask will be featured? Or at least Dementium for the DS.

Quote from comment on your article:
"And as for your suggestions, I may incorporate them next year mayhap?"

Bring it on!



TKOWL said:

Can we have an article written by Giygas and with Lavendar Town music playing in the backround? That would be beyond creepy.



cheetahman91 said:

I saw Fester's Quest on the Games list in the Retro section so I have a feeling it'll get a review.



zezhyrule said:

Oh yeah, the lack of shield should have given that away. n_n

It would be awesome if someone would make something like it though.
wink wink

Well, I guess it's time to stow away my (black)cat again. (darn cultists)
Anyway, thank you so much for mentioning Ernest Scared Stupid!
That movie may be the reason I love milk so much today.
@WaveBoy I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who remembers that movie.



Sylverstone said:

I'll admit it, I laughed at the Pac-Man ghosts! Pretty scary unless you have a power pellet! Waka-waka!



Kid_A said:

How do we know that those are ghosts and not just upside-down fire flowers with eyes?



Capt_N said:

My Wii is suffering from dual-layered disc issues. That's scary! & in general a damaged lens...
Dracula is just an over eccentric emo guy, who loves acrylic teeth, bats, & long black capes. But my malfunctioning system is scarier still.

I bet you are going to review "E.T. the Extraterrestrial" and give it a 10/10.
Now THAT would scare me!

What I'll do is watch 28 Days Later or the Shining, then go out to a concert as a plumber dressed in blue and green.
