The perils of the Hype Train…
By shandog137
Posted on 03/09/15
The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Halloween Costume Ideas For The Last-Minute Gamer

Posted on Tuesday, October 29 @ 14:11:07 Eastern by ryanbates



Eggplant Wizard – Kid Icarus
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Take an eggplant costume, modify it with one giant eyeball and a magic eggplant staff. Accentuate with cape.
Upsides: Once the prepwork is done, any gamer will instantly appreciate the originality.
Downsides: It's... not exactly the sexiest costume.
Take It To The Next Level: Remember that guy who dressed up as Captain N? Also, photo ops with any Pits or King Hippos.




Elena – Pandora's Tower
 
Difficulty: Hard. While the actual outfit won't be too difficult (platinum blond hair, short white dress), the arm thing has to be constructed with various emanations.
Upsides: Pull off that arm thing, and you have a winner.
Downsides: JRPG fans will know who you are; others will require extensive backstory.
Take It To The Next Level: Eat anything given to you that night. But first make a disgusted, pouty face.



Elizabeth – BioShock Infinite
 
Difficulty: Moderate. White dress with blue accents, blue mini blazer. Think Pan-Am without the pillbox hat.
Upsides: Everyone loves Elizabeth, as she's very recognizable and was one of the first escort quests to truly not piss everyone off.
Downsides: Guess who's fetching everything at the party? That's right.
Take It To The Next Level: Any time you see American paper currency, stage a minor panic attack then go, “No, no... I'm fine, really.”

 

Green & Purple Tentacle – Maniac Mansion
 
Difficulty: Hard. Construction will be needed. You wouldn't think it would be hard to do a tentacle but there you go.
Upsides: Every gamer should recognize you, followed by “I haven't played that game in YEARS!”
Downsides: You may get some disturbing offers to make real-life tentacle porn.
Take It To The Next Level: Any time people try to go around you, refuse to move until they bring you food. Or a can of Pepsi.

 

The Ice Climbers – Ice Climbers
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Baby blue or pink track suits (bonus for velour and ones with hoodies), oversized mallets.
Upsides: Great costume for a couple doing their first Halloween costume together.
Downsides: Another costume where time apart is excruciating. Also, parkas can get hot. Feel free to offer it to Arthur if you need a break.
Take It To The Next Level: Any time you see any character used in Super Smash Bros., bonk it with your mallet.
 


Juan Aguacate – Guacamelee
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Blue wrestling tights or something close, blue lucha mask, wrestling-style belt, boots.
Upsides: You're a luchador!
Downsides: “Dude, look! It's Nacho Libre!/Rey Mysterio Jr.!” 
Take It To The Next Level: Anyone who calls you Nacho Libre or Rey Mysterio Jr, climb up on something and drop an elbow on them.

 
 
Little Mac – Punch-Out!!
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Green shorts, black tank top, boots. The hardest part is finding green gloves (trust me, I tried).
Upsides: Easy, comfortable, recognizable
Downsides: You know how much practice it takes to hold a drink in boxing gloves?
Take It To The Next Level: Have a pink tracksuit handy if you're cold. Just don't stand next to the Ice Climbers.

 

Nathan Drake – Uncharted
 
Difficulty: Moderate. The clothes are easyjeans, dirty white henley, half-tucked. The accessories (holster, etc) may be a little harder.
Upsides: Nathan Drake is hot.
Downsides: Nathan Drake is not real.
Take It To The Next Level: Come out to Vegas and show me your half-tuck. I mean... uh... moving on.


 
Ness – Earthbound
 
Difficulty: Easy. Yellow-striped shirt, shorts, red cap, backpack, baseball bat, yo-yo, psychic powers (this part may be the only hard part).
Upsides: Almost all gamers know Ness, and a lot of non-gamers too.
Downsides: Can't really think of any.
Take It To The Next Level: Got friends who need costumes? You could use a Paula, Jeff, and Poo. Also, any time anyone takes your picture, do a peace sign and shout, “Fuzzy pickles!”

 

Nilin – Remember Me
 
Difficulty: Moderate. Maroon top, cargo pants, white mini jacket, streaked hair.
Upsides: Unique, just plain looks cool.
Downsides: The game flopped sales-wise, so expect a lot of “Who are you supposed to be?”
Take It To The Next Level: If the costume bombs, the next day just claim you scrambled everyone's memories and you were actually dressed as Princess Peach.
