So with no major plans this evening... Which in itself is a huge issue to me... I decided to pick up an old game which I've had sitting on my shelf for some time yet never got around to playing for more than ten minutes: Fatal Frame 2.
Not much of a way to spent Halloween in my mind, but given that we had a late-night birthday celebration yesterday for a friend I figured it wasn't all bad... Didn't much feel like re-creating my costume from the night before anyway. Point being, I go and fetch the case and get everything just right, wait till around 7 when the sun is setting and the air is right, turn off all the lights and settle in on the couch in front of Titaniclese (the name given to my 64 inch). All is well, pop the game into the PS2 and let's roll.
So the game wasn't in the case.
No idea where it got to and I spent the better part of an hour turning everything upside-down inside-out looking for it, no luck and no idea where it may be... Now I'm a bit pissy, don't want to simply play a game I have beaten already, which narrows it down to two choices: Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Silent Hill 5: Homecoming... Nether of which I found scary due to Shattered Memories having no enemies and 5 having your character be a combat machine... And with my luck, because I had decided to wait until 7 to start playing Gamestop was closed, so I couldn't simply go out and RE-BUY Fatal Frame 2, which I would have done... I wanted to play it that much...
So just finished up a two-hour playing of Silent Hill 5, not a bad game, just not the Halloween scare I had wanted... Sigh... I know it's just a day, just a holiday and I can have pretty much the same experience whenever I want... But something about just the, I suppose the best word is "romanticized" concept I had of playing a creepy horror game on Halloween at home by myself... Sigh... Try again next year I suppose...

This weekend I'll be heading up to Diceheads in Tennessee for their team tournament. My usual partner, Boss Greennutz, will be unable to make it so no Ork action this time. Instead I'll be bringing along my friend George with his Eldar. Still debating on Tyranids or Angels Sanguine for the trip but I'll be testing out my new mini-camcorder for the whole thing! Video should be up Sunday to log the trip. Hooha!
