Episode #33 – Halloweenie

033 – Halloween

Happy All Hallows Eve my gaming friends. I hope your sweet tooth is satisfied this year be it by candy or costume and welcome to the 2012 Halloween edition of Misdirected Mark. So sink your fangs into this one as we discuss horror gaming for the holiday and say hi to Samhain if you see him. Also watch out for sparkling vampires. If you see them KOS with extreme prejudice.
