Hope you all had a fun-filled and amazing Halloween! There were festivities going on everywhere ranging from trick-or-treating, costume parties, and seances. So, while some of you may have partaken in any of the above activities, the one other place for a spooky-spastic time was online. And no. We’re not talking about creepy pastas. Break out the Ouija Board as we recap some of the streamers on Twitch that made our Halloween in front of the monitor an indulging treat!
Kicking off the list is Elspeth. Voice actress and streamer extraordinaire, she’s a firecracker with great sense of humour. For Halloween, a bright red wig and a Space Channel 5 vibe that appealed to the lighter side of this holiday for the dead. While others were hunting ghosts and other paranormal anomalies, Elspeth was hunting down Monsters in Evolve. If you were sick and tired of those claw marks on your property, you might as well grab three friends and hunt down the beast itself. You might have been scared, but at least you were armed.
Coming in at the sixth spot is Twitch resident slacker, Slackaholicus. Slackster’s Halloween stream was a duo-costume-cast, dressed as Lumber Jack and joined by wife, cleverly costumed as a Witch Doctor. You know, because she was dressed as a doctor, wearing a witch hat, and- oh, forget it! During the broadcast our hips were grooving to Crypt of the Necrodancer and later treated to an old-school playthrough of Super Godzilla from the SNES era.
The always lovely and ever so energetic Jooygirl and her Space Port of awesomeness. Though cheery and bright, the opposite of the USG Ishimura, Jooy’s take on Halloween was a twisted beauty on what we would consider ghoulishly good looks. With a Speak-No-Evil stitched and bloody mouth paired, Jooy journeyed through Wonderland in Alice: The Madness Returns. A disturbing game for an eerie night. This was one tea party full of tricks and treats.
Go, Go, Gadget Pirate… Hat? Okay, the hat is a pretty cool hat. And the entire Buccaneer outfit is one snazzy costume. Variety streamer and Mad Chatters member, Inspekt0r grabs the fourth spot with his trusty Gadget Arm. The game of choice for the Halloween cast was Dark Souls, and though we may not think Dark Souls to be a horror game, the idea of it is horrific itself. Imagine being undead, damned and soon to become Hollow, losing our minds for eternity. It’s bleak, depressing, and grim. Quite fitting in the spirit of All Hallow’s Eve.
Clowns freak me out and Limpy receives full props for pulling off the looks as well as the stares. Tapping into the fear of clowns, Limpy broadcasted as a circus jester (fancy wording for clown) while playing Lords of the Fallen and a raffled off a PS4/XBONE giveaway. Talk about scoring some major treats! Death is a recurring theme in Lords of the Fallen, one that is all too familiar with the Day of the Dead. Why he’s so serious? Oh, wait. Wrong clown.
Unfortunately, The King of Horror Month receives the silver this year. Even though Horror Month had a small hitch in it, being temporarily cancelled and then later revived, it was the biggest and best Horror Month so far. Every single record was shattered: followers, viewers, subscribers, and donations were staggering in terms of sheer numbers. Dressed in a Star Trek captain’s uniform and doing first-time playthroughs of Outlast’s DLC, Five Nights at Freddy’s, and Silent Hill’s Playable Trailer (P.T.) ensured that Horror Month’s finale was one of grandeur.
Who takes the top of our list? Why, RomComm as the Invisible Man. Rom’s streams alone are addicting and entertaining to watch, but add an absolutely mind-blowing choice of masking his face and hands with green apparel to blend in with his chroma key green screen, awards him the top spot on our list. He’s also playing Lolipop Chainsaw. Talk about spiking the candy corn. It is pure genius and epicness!
Though the list is rather arbitrary since there are SO many cool and awesome streamers out there that we could not list, let alone discover! These broadcasters are only a mere sample of what Twitch Fan has stumbled upon and were hand-chosen through our own personal preferences. So ends Halloween, as well as October, beginning a new, we look forward to November. Cheers and happy streaming, everyone!
