Team Fortress 2's Halloween 2019 event is live

I used to reinstall Team Fortress 2 every year for Halloween, dressing up in seasonal cosmetics to fight giant enemies like the Horseless Headless Horsemann, Monoculus, and Merasmus, or to just drive around in karts. Those events continue, and Scream Fortress 11 is live right now. As is the case in recent years it's more of a showcase for player-made creations, with two community maps and a host of community-created cosmetics.

This comes as part of the Code Yellow update, which adds 14 modifiers to the skateboard shoot-a-thon including cinematic camera mode, big head mode, adjustable focus speed, and adjustable player speed. There's also an option to hide the HUD and a timer for speedrunners.

Answer questions or die in Trivia Murder Party 2, part of The Jackbox Party Pack 6

I've never had the pleasure of sampling a Jackbox Party Pack, but James has and he seemed to like it: He described Split the Room, from last year's Jackbox Party Pack 5, as "an agonizing and hilarious party game" that made him a little uncomfortable at times. ("Tortured" is the word he actually used, which I think might be a little overwrought, but I'd also babysit an angry giraffe for free so it could be that I'm just coming at it from a different perspective.)
