The PlayStation Recap

41 8

Can’t talk — playing way too many video games. So many games, in fact, that I dropped the ball on the most slam-dunk Halloween costume idea I’ve ever had: Swamp Thing using a ghillie suit. I was this close to ordering the costume, but the last thing I remember is inserting the Fallout: New Vegas disc and picking up the controller and oh god where am I what time is it

Needless to say, I’ll be dressing up as a “social media blogger guy” yet again this year. Anyone dressing up as a PlayStation character?
