Smite: Community Halloween and Winter Skin Contest

Over the past few months, Hi-Rez began another community competition for the next Halloween and Winter Skin. These contests have been taking place over the past few years, but after a tweet claiming Chef Vulcan to be the new community addition if it reached a certain number of retweets was successful, Smite fans became annoyed that a contest was not going to be held this year. To make up for this original idea, Hi-Rez announced that there would be a competition to decide on a new Halloween skin and a new Winter skin!

VGC Day 30: What game did you think you wouldn’t like but ended up loving?

Generally I’m pretty good at being able to tell whether I’ll enjoy a game or not before I play it. Obviously there are a few I have doubts with, but typically if I don’t get into a game within the first few hours, I’ll give it a miss in the future.

VGC Day 29: What game scared the crap out of you?

Although I’m a fan of horror films, I haven’t had much experience with horror games. Saying that, I’m not a fan of the cheap horror techniques such as jump scares. I much prefer in depth, story driven, psychological horror so I tend to be quite picky and it’s rare I’ll find a horror that I thoroughly enjoy.

VGC Day 28: What is your favourite game series?

There are thousands of game series out there, so to pick a favourite should be quite difficult due to the vast amount available and variation in genres. For me, there are so many games that I could class as a favourite, but there’s only one series that jumps out at me where I loved each game equally and all together as a whole.

VGC Day 27: What is your favourite classic game?

I struggled slightly with this category. When I think of classic games, I instantly think of the old Mario or Sonic games on old systems which was never something I experienced as a kid. I’ve only really been into gaming over the past 5 years, so I’m still pretty new to the scene compared to most other gaming bloggers out there!

VGC Day 26: What game can you tell has had a lot of passion put into it?

There can be many aspects that show passion in a game, whether it be the story writing, character development, game design, etc. The game I have chosen is the last of a trilogy which was released 15 years after the first game, but even though the time between the two is wide, you can still clearly tell that these games are related.

VGC Day 25: What is your comfort game?

Everybody has that game they can play no matter how they are feeling. We can be drawn to play these games for different reasons depending on what we seek. Some people love a challenge whereas others would be much happier playing something relaxing and simple in order to unwind.
