season's bleedings

Wow, that post title is really bad, huh? Hey, I'm overtired and they can't all be gems.

This year, Halloween falls on Christmas!

Incorporating sleigh bells into the Halloween theme makes it all worthwhile.

Wow, Stacie, you WERE overtired, huh?

That little girl plays piano really well...

Like the Sleigh Bells but this thing is so weird it creeps me out in a bad way.

Isn't it bizarre? There's way too much of the piano bit. If he shaved about a minute off the front, then he'd really have something.

I like that Michael Myers just...kind of...punches the air. How threatening!

Hey it's better than Halloween Resurrection!

It's just so weird that someone would take so much time to do something like that and get it so wrong. I don't get why Michael's so sneaky with the tip-toeing and why he's watching TV. Just weird. Like bad, fever dream weird.

Pretty funny.
But why does Michael prance?

Well, it's a Sims 2 thing.

Once you build your house and your playable characters (like this little girl), NPC's (non-playing characters) can then interact with them. Like the mailman, the gardener, the pizza guy, and in this case, a burglar.

What the player did here was hack the burglar's normal zorro-mask-wearing "skin" and substitute a custom Michael Myers skin.

The behaviors of the NPC's are still the same, however. Hence the "sneaking around".

One interaction you can initiate is a "fight" command. Basically, you make a character so mad that he "puts up his dukes" and they have a short brawl. That's what MM was doing when he was "punching the air". Sadly, there is no stabbing in Sims games :(

Thanks for clearing that up, Spazmo- I thought it might be something like that.

I knew Michael Myers really liked to drive, but I never knew he liked TV so much as well!
