    Halloween is almost upon us, and for those of you who don't have an irrational fear of Presidents' Day, it's the scariest time of the year. This morning, we were reviewing this year's Third Annual Scream Fortress Halloween Update, and we realized that it is probably too scary. Scratch that - it's definitely too scary. This much concentrated terror would be like throwing you into the deep end of a pool... With no lifeguard on duty! [sound of lightning hitting a bat] But then, oh thank God, here comes a lifeguard. Sayyyy, he looks familiar. OH MY GOD it's Dracula! No wait, it's even worse! It's legendary Hollywood triple threat, Ethan Hawke! Acting! Directing! Writing! But not swimming! Everyone knows he can't swim! What monster would hire Ethan Hawke to be a lifeguard? Does this cursed rec center not have ANY lifeguard hiring oversight committee? IT DOES NOT! AWOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I never know if Halloween is the best or the worst of what their writers do.

    I think it's absolutely hilarious, but kinda the same as what they did last year, and the year before.

    Personally, I love the writing for the H'ween events. I think its some of the best they've done...

    Kind of reminds me of the Old spice guy commercials.

    All I want for Halloween is for the loadout bug to be fixed so I don't have to keep selecting my weapons EVERY TIME I RESPAWN.

    ...so now they're even monitoring servers to make sure nobody can get too many "gifts"? so the items are that important now

    this game has really gone a long way

    If you click on 'Start Playing', pick a gamemode and click 'join' you'll automatically be dropped into "[one] of these servers".
