For Halloween, most enjoy the Skittles and the KitKats. The costumes and spooks. Us? We may enjoy some Halloween-ish video games. Play some Left 4 Dead 2 co-op, speedrun Resident Evil, catch up on the SOMA hype... or we may just spend the day taking it easy, because it's the weekend and few things in this world embody "taking it easy" more than sleep.
The way I see it, the only other alternative when you want sleep and are completely alone (and by that I mean there being little to nobody currently watching) is the ancient art of masturbation.
But, really. Do you wanna spend the greatest holiday of the year just nappin' and fappin'?
Why, yes. Perhaps you do.
Originally, I was going to attempt my Resident Evil 4 + 6 blog that I had mentioned in the Quickposts in time for this screamazing (ugh) day, but my computer had some hiccups (what else is new?) and I had to postpone that for at least a few days. As of now, I've just finished Ada's campaign, previously finished Leon's, and am moving on to Chris and Jake's.
After another several hours with it, my point still stands: The game is not that bad, and I can't wait to talk about it!
Ever since first going to Alamo City Comic-Con last year, attending it again just last month, and with my upcoming plans for PAX South, cosplay has sort of usurped my interest in playing dress up. I'll save myself a few more cavities by switching objectives from WHERE'S THE CANDY DEAR NEIGHBOR I DON'T WANT YOUR LEFTOVER FRUIT OR THEIR HIDDEN SURPRISES to just having fun with fellow dorks.
And it's not everyday you get to meet folk like Troy Baker, Anthony Michael Hall, Robert England, or Steve Downes.
I don't even eat much candy these days. I still have my mainstays like those mouth-watering Sour Patch Watermelons or any one of many favoite flavors of Jelly Belly, but I've especially lost my taste for a lot of the brands of chocolate I used to enjoy.
KitKats, 3 Musketeers, Twix, and practically anything Hershey's. Man, what was I thinking with Hershey's bars? Holy shit are they tasteless.
But, have you heard of Lindor? They make over the counter chocolate truffles and they're amazing! That I can stiill get down with.
Ah, who am I kidding? I shouldn't even go that far. My teeth are terrible and I can't have them getting any worse.
They say so many things out there that are tasty are also pretty bad for you. Let us remind ourselves of this before we chunk down that bag of assorted Tootsie Roll Pops at once. Mmmm... that is easier said than done.
On the other hand, I've just started taking vitamins and they have no right to taste this good. They are fruity gummies and hide their nutritional value pretty well. I audibly yelped in disbelief for about 5 minutes after taking my first dose.
I considered watching the Resident Evil films along with playing RE6 and potentially RE5 (for some extended perspectiive for my upcoming blog), but I think that would not only ruin Halloween but Thanksgiving and Christmas. I mean, the first one was actually pretty good. It had Michelle Rodriguez, who is pretty sexy for a 3D girl. But, that's probably about it. I watched the second film for 25 minutes and was immensely unentertained.
Call it a rash judgment, but screw that movie.
It's a mystery why those films are so popular. Thinking about it, the only reason I'd watch a Resident Evil film would be to witness the scenes with Wesker or see how they adapted pretty boy Leon.
And they're still coming out with another one?!
So yeah. I'll continue playing Resident Evil 6 for my Halloween. I'll probably get Chris' campaign out of the way first, which was easily the part of RE6 I least enjoyed back when I played it around release. Jake's campaign + Mercanaries will be a blast, I think.
Boy, is this game huge.
Have a spooky, sexy Halloween kids!
