Halloween Events: A Great Way to Thank Your Fav Devs

It’s easy to burn out on your fav game if you play it non-stop. One way game devs work to bring you back is by giving you sweet n’ spooky events. I personally can’t get enough of the Halloween Overwatch skins. Sure, some of the events cost irl money, but hey – if you like a game, why not purchase a couple loot boxes and support the folks behind your #1 game? I hear ya that loot boxes can suck. Fortunately, some game events, like Hallow’s End in Heroes of the Storm, guarantee a limited release item. And praise the PC Goddess that none of these loot box items are needed to progress in the game (I’m looking at you, Fortnite).
