It’s Halloween! Well, Halloweek, at least. After a few weeks of spooky Top 5 topics, we dug deep into gaming’s roots for five seriously old-school horror games. Atari 2600 old-school. Terrifying. With that out of the way, it’s on to business as usual with Sunset Overdrive, Lords of the Fallen, the return of X-Wing and TIE Fighter, and your favorite in-game haunted houses.
Question of the Week
What’s your favorite game that lets you play as a villain?
If ya haven’t checked out the Laser Time YouTube channel, here’s something swell you might’ve missed: The Top 5 Tiny Toons Games!
*NOTE* We’ve been getting some AMAZING donations lately but hardly anyone is attaching a name and the intended recipient of said donations. Please try to make note of which podcast the donation is going to so maybe we can get some new equipment and thank the right people for all their support.
Theme song by Matthew Joseph Payne. Break song is Who Am I? from Alone in the Dark (2008), by Olivier Derivière and The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices. Haunting and beautiful New Releases Theme by David B. Cooper.
