It’s hard to believe that Retro Game Boards is approaching it’s ONE YEAR anniversary… We were born in October 2017, and because October is nearly upon us, it’s time for the 2nd Annual Spooktacular Game Month!!
Time to bust out those Castlevanias and Splatterhouses… The Resident Evils and Silent Hills… The Superman 64s and Bubsy 3d- okay, maybe not THAT scary.
In October, I’ll be playing lots of SPOOKY games, and hope you’ll all join me! As is my tradition, I will be posting my progress as the month goes on, as well as reviewing the various PUMPKIN BEERS I tend to drink this time of year.
On the docket this year:
CASTLEVANIA, yes ALL of them. I’ve only ever beat 1 and 4, and I plan on changing that. I’ll try to get through the majority of the classic series, from 1 all the way to Rondo, all on original hardware. Let’s see how that goes!
UNTIL DAWN - PS4 - I’ve been meaning to play this for a long time, and what better month than October? I’m a sucker for this style of game (Telltale / David Cage), and am looking forward to some slasher fun.
Friday the 13th: The Game - This one’s free on PS Plus in North America this month! They raved about it on the Player One Podcast last year, and I never got a chance to try. I’ll probably only dabble in this, but maybe some fellow RGBers would be interested in playing a round or two?
My stretch goals include some other PS4 and Xbox One horror games that have made their way into my backlog, notably SOMA and Layers of Fear.
What is every planning on playing? I look forward to hearing your Horror Game thoughts! And feel free to ask for suggestions, I absolutely love everything horror and would be happy to help if you want to dabble in this genre.
