Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 16] : Sexy Sriracha Cheerleader Person of Things

Sexy Sriracha Cheerleader

With the spookiest of holidays approaching, the gang gathers around a warm mic to examine the trend of sexy Halloween costumes. Once that business has been addressed, we share tales from Halloweens past, as the Rev scares children, Julian almost gets a doppelganger, Josh’s car catches fire, and Mandi dresses up as a delicious dessert.

After the break, we come back with our favorite video game urban legends, scary moments in scary games, and all sorts of other creepy, crawly fun. Yes, this includes Ben Drowned, Lavender Town Syndrome, Herobrine, and more!

People don’t get as into Halloween here as they seem to in your corner of the world. I do see Halloween parties, but we don’t have an endless supply of sexy costumes in our shops.

I haven’t played PT but I find that a lot of adventure games are scary in the way you describe. I quite liked the Penumbra series.

Oh man, in Minneapolis, they transform the entire basement of Ragstock into a costume store every year. There are a bunch of shops too that are ONLY open during Halloween season and they only sell Halloween costumes. It’s nuts!

PT is amazing. A. Maze. Ing. If you have a friend who still has it on their PS4 hard drive, you should offer them literally whatever they want in order to play it.

Like, *whatever* they want. Literally.

…I am suggesting you prostitute yourself in order to play PT. It is that good.

ETA: Or, I suppose, you could just come over to Josh’s place when we’re recording the podcast and play it on his PS4. Either way.

I get more scared at regular games than horror games. When I first went to the Dunwich building in Fallout I shit my pants.

I second that crapping. Fallout 3 in particular had an eerie aura in a lot of the old dilapidated buildings.

Oh wow, I love creepypasta. The first one I ever heard was a Simpsons one but I like the Minecraft story too.

Creepypasta is great. I feel like it’s really it’s own type of rumor/theory. Because by and large, no one thinks creepypasta is real, yet good creepypasta has that air of something that *could* have been.

Most of my favorite creepypasta was covered in the episode, but if you have any you’d like to share, I’d love to hear/read it! Creepypasta is so much fun!

Don’t listen to Julian. Fuel my ego. It’s super important that my ego is fueled. My fiancee only feeds my ego a diet of sparkling water, and has strict rules that my girlfriends do the same. So *obviously* I need internet commenters to feed my ego!

ETA: Also, “They”, please. For pronouns. I’m Genderfluid.

Some of the scariest games I’ve played recently include Stalker, Metro 2033, DOOM 3 BFG using texture mods, Outlast, Bloodborne.

And Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5. Bonechilling.

All these comments and no one has mentioned Are You Afraid Of The Dark? For shame. Do you have a link to the creepy Pokemon art Nintendo commisioned?

I know! I always wonder how many of our listeners can identify the sound bytes we open our episodes with!

I still say that the scary maze game is the scariest game.
