We're closing out Spooptober 2020 with the grimmest, bleakest topic we could think of: horror games set in, around, and within the (sometimes literal) fallout of the Soviet Union. With history buff Jeremy King of Tweakalicious.tv on board, we'll also dig into Watch Dogs: Legion, Ghostrunner, Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues, news from Nintendo's final Direct of 2020, and the politicians and celebs you'd like to see stream a game next.

Our greatest Spooptober episode yet is here! The inimitable Alex Faciane of Chilluminati Podcast (among other things) joins us for a look at five real(ish) cryptids — creatures people swear they've seen but whose existence remains unconfirmed — that have made multiple videogame appearances over the years. Then it's on to a heated discussion of the Monster Hunter movie trailer, Sega's surprise 60th-anniversary games, and the classic Nintendo games you think should get the battle royale treatment.

It's the start of October, which means we're switching to horror-focused topics and bad Dracula impressions between now and Halloween!

Then it's on to Genshin Impact, Mafia: Definitive Edition, Peter Parker's new face, and your favorite memories of the 3DS.
