We have compiled the weirdest bits for you, our beloved readers, into the above supercut.

Party on.

Let's talk about our favorite spooky things in Polygon's Halloween special

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays of the year. And it turns out I'm not alone. It turns out that plenty of the Polygon staff loves the chance to seek out scares in books, movies and games, eat candy and dress up as pirates for the day.

Evolve's Big Alpha releases Goliath into the wild for the first time

During a press-only preview last week Polygon was given the opportunity to go a few rounds in the Big Alpha of Evolve before the general release. Originally slated to hit retail this month, Evolve has had its release date pushed back to Feb. 2015, ostensibly for tuning and balancing.
