    Marasmus is just Dr. Orpheus from Venture Bros. I think i've said it before. It's a buzz kill, but it is funny that i always hear his chirpy voice when i read these comics.

    Man, valve's writers and audience have no idea of the concept of a "One-joke concept", do they?

    You mean a "one-note joke"? Or is that what Americans call it?

    I have no idea. The phrase "one-joke concept" is the one that springs to mind when I think of "His roommate is a wizard".

    I think you are looking for the phrase "throw away joke".

    I think that's the point. Halloween has never been scary. It's always been hammy and silly fun, so treating it as a bad comedy routine honestly really fits.

    Sometimes i forget Valve always do hidey things like that.

    As for the hidden page, the article about "great familiar for wizards" makes me think of how Blade refers to vampire minions as familiars.

    Passing every page of their blog with Tab is a good idea when the times of the Tin Foil come back ... :O

    It wouldn’t surprise me, if the Halloween map this year is going to be a mvm map, where all of the robots are replaced with voodoo-cursed undeads, resmbling the TF2 mercenaries.

    There is a VMT in the Beta for scout_red_zombie or something, but the VTF is missing. So yeah, probably.

    I hope not. I still haven't played that mode outside of a local server due to asshats kicking me as soon as I join.

    Get into Steam chat or something more often, we organize games a lot.

    I genuinely don't want Halloween to become MvM based, no matter how new or popular the mode is.

    I like my Halloween maps to be crazy fun on servers packed with people, not horde mode.
