B-Horror RPG Up On Kickstarter

Sure, Halloween’s just passed, and with it came and went a whole slew of awful (in a good way, to many) horror movies.

HeroClix: Undead Set Now Available

My current playlist I’m listening to (and have been for a couple weeks now) includes songs like Misfits – Halloween, Ministry – Everyday is Halloween, and The Cramps – Naked Girl Falling Down the Stairs (because if you’re gonna write a song, write a damn song!). As you can tell from at least 2 out of those 3, I’m a fan of this time of year. Some people think it’s too early for that stuff. But I certainly don’t. And I think WizKids would agree, since they’ve just released their HeroClix: Undead set.
