Darkwatch having costume ball

High Moon Studios launches Halloween costume line based on its vampire Western actioner.

by

Vampires and cowboys are a staple of Halloween. On the night of October 31 in any given neighborhood across America, one can barely smash a pumpkin without coming across a trick-or-treater dressed as either a bloodsucker or a dude-ranch alumnus. High Moon Studios has decided to exploit this untapped market by launching a line of costumes bases on its decently reviewed PlayStation 2 and Xbox actioner Darkwatch. Designed and manufactured by California Costume Collections, Inc., the costume will sport clothing and accessories re-creating the outfit worn by the game's half-vampire gunslinger hero, Jericho Cross. The costumes will be available at All Hallows' Eve-centric retailers such as Party City and Spencer Gifts, Party America, Halloween Express, Halloween Scene, Halloween Adventure, and BuySeasons.com.

rokkuman09 Hmmpf, I don't know about the costumes in the actual game and the real life ones, but kids are known for adoring Halloween-style costumes, so your logic is fundamentally flawed.

A costume based on a M rated game targeted toward young kids...oh boy. That's just not right, also this game wasn't super popular so either way it won't sell well, so I really I diagree with it morally and I think it's a bad decision money wise. I really just don't think they will make much of this.

This game stunk. It was way over hyped and did not deliver that good of an experience. I played it for a day and traded in.

I'm sure I'm not the only person who thinks this is a bad idea.

Looking at the gamespace I see a rating of Mature with Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Mature Sexual Themes, and Language.

I wouldn't want to see kids wearing costumes based on this game.

Nothing better than marketing to kids who aren't old enough to play your M-Rated game eh?
