Happy Halloween 2019


There’s something spooky going on in the Microsoft Store this week… it’s the Shocktober sale! There’s loads of Xbox bargains that you can grab up until Halloween, so here’s out top picks of the week!


As is our (now) yearly tradition, we’re happy to announce this fun little theme to celebrate the start of the Halloween season. Featuring a 3-D Jack ‘o Lantern set in a lonely haunted forest at night, utilizing entirely 3-D assets created using photogrammetry as well as procedural texturing. Additionally, this theme features 5.1 surround haunted audio effects, custom key-tones, season-appropriate icon skins and maybe a couple of surprises … … Was that too obscure? I’m being too obscure. That last part was like a big obvious WINK that there’s some creepy stuff in the theme. Not too crazy but, you know, the good kind of spooky. And no, none of that’s in the video. And yeah, it was kind of freaking me out when we had to test it so, I guess, enjoy!


Boo! Happy (almost) Halloween friends! We’re here with a few last minute ideas for a Nintendo-themed Halloween. We have a new very cool Mario Kart costume, we make some yummy but somewhat questionable looking Boo Bites and we carve a pumpkin into a Smash Ball! Let us know in the comments if you plan on dressing up as a Nintendo character this year for Halloween. You can send us your pictures with #NintendoHalloween. As always, thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you next week.
