This Saturday (October 25th) marks the 6th annual Extra Life gaming marathon for charity. Each year, gamers all over the world unite for a 24 hour period (or whatever they may choose) to support and donate to children’s hospitals to help sick kids.
We have long supported the event, but this year’s we’ve created our very own Extra Life page. Our streaming will begin on October 25th at 12 am EDT on our Twitch Channel as we support our area hospital, Children’s National in Washington D.C.

The Evil Within Original Game Soundtrack features 18 iconic tracks from the game, which is more than enough to build the tension between playthroughs of the game, or add atmosphere to your Halloween party.

We’ve been keeping a close eye on Daniel (known on DeviantArt as Corroder666) since we came across his masterfully done “Keeper” cosplay from The Evil Within. Daniel made his costumed debut at Gamescom this year to go along with all of the excitement for The Evil Within this October. We asked him to take some time outside of the box(man) and answer some questions about the development of his intricate and terrifying costume.
What was the greatest influence in your decision to recreate The Keeper?
He looks quite disturbing and very strange and it seems to me that he is like the “Red Pyramid” thing from “Silent Hill”, a figure that makes The Evil Within recognisable. I like this weird but memorable image and I just think it’s quite cool!
Another reason is the realisation in general. Normally I only make costumes and props once I have played through the game and think it’s good and have built up a kind of relationship with the character. Then I’ve also got enough models to recreate the individual elements as true to the original as possible. In this case this wouldn’t have been at all possible with just a couple of published images. However, you published a 3D model of Boxman on Sketchfab for Halloween last year, with which I could construct and recreate everything around it.
Head: The framework is made of hard foam-board, the fittings are made of “Worbla’s Finest Art”, a cycling helmet was also used. In order to see I installed a “PlayStation Vita” with camera behind the upper digit wheel. A camera films the exterior and I virtually see, through the PS Vita, what’s “happening” outside.
Barbed wire: I made the barbed wire out of “Worbla” leftovers, which I melted and rolled into wires. There’s over 25 metres in all.
Rucksack: The foundation framework is made of styrodur boards. In addition I used a corrugated foil sheet and “Worbla” for the fittings.
Meat tenderizer: For this I cut styrodur into the basic shape of the hammer head. I used a cardboard tube for the handle and encased everything in “Worbla”.
Other: I also used imitation leather, a welder’s apron, acid-protective gloves and of course various paints.
It’s officially October, and with that comes Halloween! While we’re still a ways off from the 31st, our first October stream kicks off with some sci-fi horror to build atmosphere and get us in the spirit (no pun intended).
September 30th marked the 20th anniversary of DOOM II’s release date, so this week we will be going taking the DOOM Marine on a journey through Hell on Earth. After that, we’ll head back to Mars for a look at DOOM 3 BFG Edition.
Throughout the stream be on a lookout for our trivia. We’ll be giving away two limited edition numbered prints and an accompanying DOOM marine plush.
Tune in today at 4pm EDT for a jump into horror only on Twitch.tv/Bethesda
