I told myself, "Hey self, just about ready for bed, just gonna check out Giant Bomb real quick. Oh, look! Spookin' is back! I should check this out."

I may be an idiot.

Wow, if you don't realize your speakers are off, the first 20 seconds of this video are pretty disconcerting in full screen.

I... I can relate.

Love this feature and totally psyched that it's back. My girlfriend loves to watch it with me. However, I cannot stand this damn game. The first episode was fun due to the glitches, but Patrick should know that the rest of the game involves that stupid forest maze.

Also, for the love of God, please don't play the 2nd one. It is so much worse than this one and has even less to do with the Blair Witch.

Where do you find all these creepy gifs? I know I'll never be able to make it through playing a horror game if even 5 second looping gifs scare me!

A new Spookin' With Scoops! I've been waiting so long.

Man, the intro to Cursed Woods is great. "Suddenly the electricity was in the car to act up." I hate when that happens. For real though, I would've lasted about 10 minutes before I stopped playing Cursed Woods. I am a giant sissy, and was having no part of what that game was offering.

Also, I still love that whenever Patrick narrates something that is a historical account or journal, he suddenly switches into "Southern preacher" accent. I'd love to know why that happens. And somehow Patrick found a way to compare Cursed Woods to Dark Souls, which shouldn't even be possible.

As for the Blair Witch game, let me borrow a move from the Jeff Gerstmann playbook, used in the Rambo Quick Look:

"Vinny I can't play this anymore."

"Vinny I cannot play this anymore."

"Vinny I can not play this anymore."

Oh man, the new video player is so much better. Holy crap!!

Felt bad for Patrick near the end, when Dark Souls was nearly ready and everybody was talking about that/complaining about Spookin still being on.

Great work Patrick, was great to watch!

Were people being shitty? I just saw people making fun of Brad's "upcoming horror stream"

Most people were alright but some were being outright shitty to Patrick to the extent that one of the mods had to remind people to be polite. It's not a good look for the Giant Bomb community.

I just couldn't help but notice that the sting used in that woods game is the same sting used in Deadly Premonition for an item pick up. That is what I'll take away from this video.

This game is rather uneventful. One might even say it's... "slender" in regard to its contents. Still, it is better made than most of these horror games that pop up nowadays.

If you want to see even less exciting or well produced me-too games like The Cursed Forest, check out 'Gaming Garbage' on YT. You'll wish you hadn't.

Man, that intro .GIF......Freaks me out :'(

You all everybody be cool! You, be cool!

Patrick always seems to find the best, if not disconcerting, gifs for his Spookin streams.

Funnily enough, as much as I love Vinny and Brad and am okay with the Dark/Demon's Souls thing, I find Spookin' to most often be far more entertaining/interesting on a consistent basis. I thought people being assholes to Patrick was just a temporary thing when he was new to the site, but I consistently see more of it with every article/video with his name on it and it frustrates me because I feel it frustrates him and there's no reason for it.

You too? I was disappointed we didn't suddenly hear York's voice.

"Zach, this game is a waste of time. We should play something different..."

Oasis reference, nice.

Edited by Freshbandito

@mercury45: I was sorely disappointed when I heard it that a tin of 'The Pickles' wasn't on screen. Spent the rest of the video mulling over setting aside the time to play through Deadly Premonition again

Keep these coming Scoops! Love em.

Posted by ThePaleKing

I think the difference between "thriller" and "horror", and this is a total generalization and can be poked full of holes, is that a thriller involves nothing super-natural. Horror is about being confronted by the unknown, the unexplainable, whereas a thriller is dealing with more human, emotional situations. Manhunter and Halloween both deal with serial killers, but Francis Dolarhyde is a person and Michael Myers is a force of evil.

But then there are films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre...so who knows.

Still looking forward to that Fatal Frame playthrough!

It is funny how obscure some of these games are.

I'm still waiting for Patrick to poop himself.

Posted by Aiasdair

@vrikk: Are you really saying you want to be Poopin' with Scoops?

Posted by Talon64

yeeeeees i've been waiting for a new Spookin' forever. I want to see Patrick finish out the Blair Witch game.

Anyone know what that opening gif is from?
