Surprised aren't you? I knew you would be! You don't need to have another worry about Silent Hill this year. Consider this a vacation, guys - a reward! It's VoidBurger and Kamoc's turn to take it easy! I'll see that you're comfortable.

There's a Nightmare Before Christmas GAME?

Released by Capcom on October 21st, 2004 in Japan and a whole YEAR later in America and the UK, The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge is a action-adventure game set one year after the events of famous 1993 "claymation" flick, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Yes, the video game came out over ten years after the film. (I suspect it has something to do with Kingdom Hearts, which came out in 2002 and featured a Nightmare Before Christmas level.) Critics rightfully complained about its boring, repetitive combat, samey-samey fetch quests, and VERY irritating music and sound effects. But don't worry, I'll be replacing most of the annoying music with alternate music pretty early on, before the music really starts driving people.... batty.

Oogie's Revenge is surprisingly faithful to the spirit and mood of the film. Capcom recreated Halloween Town very well, using pictures of the original set and even movie concept art for reference, it seems. Many of the original voice actors reprise their roles for the game, also. Too bad the game is so annoying.

If you haven't seen or don't remember the movie very well, you should watch this video and I'll sum it up for you.

Without further ado, let's play The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge!

I'm pretty sure this is unofficial merch - a tshirt my dad has had for like five years. Apologies for the shitty phone picture.

I always completely forget it's NMBC related, but my grandma got me this jumper a while back for Christmas or something:

I think it might actually be offical merch, but the labels are tiny, it's hard to tell.

Hey, it's fine, Jack's proven in the past that he's more than willing to work any season. Push it as far into November as you need.
