Happy Halloween 2010 from Keen and Graev!

Happy Halloween everyone!  We hope that you enjoy this holiday as much as we do.  It’s a night of warm chili and cornbread, apple cider, pajamas, and family for us.

Halloween, although not anywhere near the date when we started our blog (February 2007), has become a tradition of “where are we now?” here on the blog.   In 2007, when we first started the tradition, we were playing EQ2 on Antonia Bayle,  2008 was spent in Warhammer Online, and 2009 was oddly enough spent in Aion.  This year we are extremely happy to find ourselves in World of Warcraft.

This is not our first Halloween spent in WoW though.  In fact, in might be our third.  I can remember back to the very first Halloween event that Blizzard put on when the straw-man was first lit.  This holiday has always been one of Blizzard’s bests and remains one of the best holiday events in any MMO ever — perhaps tied with EQ2 and The Realm.  The atmosphere created by the lit pumpkins and how they have a way of making a simple setting like the inn in Brill feel eerily festive is really magical.

  • Reading this makes it even harder to resist going back. 🙁
    But my desktop is dead so yeah.

    Atough we dont celebrate it in any form here in Holland, Happy Halloween to ya’ll!

  • I resubbed to WOW in hopes of getting the horseman’s reins. I got it 5 days later. I also still enjoy the Halloween events in Guild Wars.

  • “I resubbed to get something and I got it 5 days later” …. ROFL, sounds like the WoW I remember.

  • I’ve always enjoyed WoW’s halloween events from year to year and I was lucky enough to get the headless horsemans reigns about 3 years ago.

    I must say though that this year I participated in a Halloween event than I feel beat what WoW offered (WoW’s being my previous favorite). That game is LoTRO! LoTRO’s Harvest Math fextivale was just excellent, they offered the normal festival games in addition to a new Halloween area called the Haunted Burrow. It was a lot of fun going through the burrow and seeing all the little surprises and figuring out the quests. I easily spent 2-3 hours doing all the events on Halloween and it was a blast!
