This feels like an Early Access thing cause it REALLY feels like they keep running afoul of more than 1 answer...

@summerofblake: Ouija boards have a one-in-three chance to spawn in a location and have nothing to do with the type of ghost. The only ghost-related thing with a Ouija board is that asking questions with one will not drain your Sanity if the ghost is a Demon. Ouija boards are not "Ghost Writing" either, if you were thinking that. Only if the ghost writes in the Ghost Writing Book item is it considered "Ghost Writing".

At first I thought it was difficult to hear everyone but actually screaming over the walkie talkie is extremely good

The positional voices and walkie-talkies are pretty neat.

That creepy child face on the staircase Abby looked at in the van is a supposedly real ghost picture taken at the famous Amityville haunted house.

I took a couple of photography classes in college too, except instead of a lab fee, we had to get all our own chemicals along with the film and paper. Two semesters was enough to convince me there's not a chance in hell I'd be doing this anymore with those costs.

It's a real bummer Abby's leaving. I hope she doesn't feel like the community didn't appreciate her. I feel like the negative voices and criticism always seem the loudest because people who are fans/happy with the content usually don't go out of their way to say anything. Kind of like how looking for uncurated user reviews for almost anything is always going to dredge up the angriest, most bewildering complaints and base negativity.

@garr123: I had these worries to but I think shes knows theres a large segment of this site that loves her. That really showed up when she managed to get a game with St. Vincent. In her time here shes really managed to carve out her own section on this site with her unique perspective and fresh humour and damn Im gonna miss it.

@customotto: She announced it on her Twitter, on the Beastcast, and it was also talked about in the weekly Community post. Her last day is the end of November. She decided to leave due to something related to the buyout it seems since that's what she's referenced and in the Beastcast it seems it's something she's been discussing with Vinny prior and this presented the right timing for her. And she's mentioned any suggestions on places hiring or whatever so there's not something specific lined up at the moment.

Lastly, they've asked that people don't discuss anything like who could be hired on or anything.

I really enjoyed her part in this video as she often seemed the most focused on the business side of ghost hunting. Everyone else would dip away but she was always hanging out in the room yelling for the ghost to party. It's just a job and someone has to do it.

I hope nothing stops Abby from doing stuff like this with giantbomb whenever she moves on to her future endeavor. Watching her and Vinny's friendship develop was amazing and genuine.
