So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

Halloween Costume Ideas For The Last-Minute Gamer

Posted on Tuesday, October 29 @ 14:11:07 Eastern by ryanbates
If you haven’t noticed, in America, Halloween is a big, freakin' deal. In fact, between candy, parties, costumes, decorations, Halloween haunted houses, and events—and yes, liquor—Americans are estimated to spend $6.9 billion dollars on the October 31st celebration altogether.
 
Scary, right?
 
For gamers, it’s a celebration of what we love—dressing up and playing make-believe. Whether you want to be a terrifying zombie, freak-show slasher, pretty pretty princess or brave hero, Halloween is your chance to do it without judgment or trips to the asylum.
 
And it's only days away. And you're still scrambling for a costume?! Epic fail.
 
Now everyone knows the usual suspects: Link, Mega Man, the Mushroom Kingdom Crew. All those are nice options, to be sure, but for the more creative gamer looking for something a little more original, we’ve come up with some last-minute ideas (in alphabetical order) to show off the gamer in you.


Aiden Pearce – WATCH_DOGS
 
Difficulty: Easy. Cargo pants, trench coat, black hat with bent bill, face cover, technological gadgets.
Upsides: Easy to put together.
Downsides: Everybody asking all night why the game got delayed.
Take It To The Next Level: When people ask you if you can hack, search “do a barrel roll” on Google for them.


 
Arthur – Ghosts 'n' Goblins
 
Difficulty: Easy. Oversized lance. White boxers with hearts. A helmet if you're feeling ambitious.
Upsides: Legal excuse to run around in your boxers.
Downsides: Cold drafts. Cold drafts everywhere.
Take It To The Next Level: If anyone touches you, die on the spot.



Birdo – Super Mario Bros. 2
 
Difficulty: Hard. Construction might be involved. Basically, craft a snout and a pink Yoshi costume.
Upsides: It's unique. Add a white rugby ball as an egg for a nice touch.
Downsides: Just make sure no one tries to throw the egg back at your head you carefully constructed.
Take It To The Next Level: If anyone's dressed as Yoshi, guess who you're following around all night! Hope they're cute!



Bub & Bob – Bubble Bobble
 
Difficulty: Hard. Find a “cute dinosaur” costume, then find a partner to go with you. The costume doesn't really work separately
Upsides: Have a canister of bubbles! Everyone loves bubbles.
Downsides: When one dino takes a bathroom break, explaining to everyone else what your costume is. “No, remember that game, where you trapped everyone in bubbles?”
Take It To The Next Level: Right before you're about to leave whatever event you're at, yell “HURRY!”, then tear like a bat out of hell out of there.


 
Captain N – Captain N The Game Master
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Jeans, yellow t-shirt, red letterman jacket, Zapper. NES controller for a belt gets you bonus points.
Upsides: The satisfaction of almost everyone going “Oh my GOD, I loved that cartoon!”, which will hopefully translate into free drinks.
Downsides: Knowing some poor saps out there never saw an episode of Captain N.
Take It To The Next Level: Convince your girlfriend to be Princess Lana. Make all your gamer fantasies come true later.



Connor & Aveline – Assassin's Creed III & Assassin's Creed III: Liberation
 
Difficulty: Expert. You'll want to have some serious cosplay pieces for this, as it's a mix of Assassin and Revolutionary War.
Upsides: Done right, it's incredibly impressive.
Downsides: If you're Connor, it's knowing that all the hard work that went into your costume got trumped by Aveline.
Take It To The Next Level: When people ask who you are, correctly pronounce Connor's birth name, Rahtonhnhaké:ton.

 

Cooking Mama – Cooking Mama
 
Difficulty: Easy. Yellow apron, pink kerchief on head, white shirt. Various cooking implements.
Upsides: Simple, and if people don't recognize Cooking Mama, you'll be the chef, and that's fine too.
Downsides: You'll hear “That's a game?” a lot.
Take It To The Next Level: At any parties, you can say anything you want about the food, good or bad, and get away with it, because you're adorably dressed.
