I imagine October is always going to put me in mind of The Secret World. It was perhaps my favourite game of all time, and it is inextricably tied to the Halloween season.
Halloween as an adult is a depressing affair. When you’re a kid, it’s this magical holiday you spend all year looking forward to. As an adult, it’s a Wednesday. But for a few years, through TSW, I was able to recapture a bit of the magic of Halloween. I will always treasure my memories of investigating Danny’s stories, and listening to radio dramas in graveyards, and summoning the Rider.
TSW may be gone, but I’ll always have the memories.
Given the link between the Secret World and the Halloween season, there’s only one song I could pick for Song of the Month for October.
Hello, I walk into empty.
