TheVCubeSolver and I team up in this playthrough vid to reintroduce you to a seriously underrated classic on the Wii.

Lights Out For Collector's Crypt

#pic { display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; } Do you remember Collector’s Crypt? I wrote about that place around this time last year. It’s closed now. I had a dream about it the other night, or rather its next incarnation, which was as a hybrid Christmas/Halloween store. I know the owners have an interest in Christmas things, so that detail is not too surprising. But in my dream, there was also a functional toilet over by the register.

The Dark Hour - Best Haunt Ever!

I discovered The Dark Hour in March, at St. Patrick's Day of all times, and I fell in love. I don't have the skills to work there, but I think if I could just secretly sneak in and live there, I would. I'd be like that weird guy from the movies who lives between the walls somehow, and you hear him rummaging around in the fridge at night. Just hope I don't get caught!
