Epic Games won’t let any season or event pass by without celebrating it inside Fortnite Battle Royale, so it’s no surprise the company has something big up its sleeve for Halloween. Get ready for the mysterious “Fortnitemares.”
Teased on Twitter over the weekend, Fortnitemares is … some kind of … something. All we really know so far is that it will be popping up in Battle Royale soon.
Nintendo’s newest mobile game just kicked off its first event in time for Halloween. Dragalia Lost players can enjoy playing with new adventurers, Wyrmprints, and dragons. You will also bag a Tenfold Summon ticket just for logging in.
What better way to get ready for Halloween than with playing through some of the App Store’s spookiest game titles? With that in mind, here are our picks for the best horror (or, a the very least, creepy) titles available for your gaming pleasure on iPhone or iPad.
This week: Apple just had their best year ever, and it’s hard to fathom how much cold hard cash they made—we’ll put it in perspective. Plus: Nintendo’s first iOS game confuses us; the new Apple TV isn’t quite the revolution Apple promised; and stick around for a spooky new Get to Know Ur Cultist… if you DARE.

So a good Halloween costume idea is not coming to you. Steve and Marianne Wintercroft can get you started with an alluring mask.
The British design couple has made a company out of designing masks that the buyers build themselves. For a few bucks, you can download a template of a polygon constructed animal head that you print, cut and assemble.
Whether you call them anthologies, omnibuses or portmanteaus, the idea is the same: These are films composed of a series of shorter plots with a “frame” connecting them (usually somebody telling the stories to an incredulous audience). This is one of my all-time favorite subgenres for its variety and wealth of content.
This is the third installment in Cult of Mac’s week-long festival of horror movies for Halloween. If you’ve already seen all of those horror classics from Monday, and Tuesday’s monster movies don’t do much for you, check out some of these anthology flicks. They contain a combined total of 28 stories, including the frames, so odds are you’ll find something to get your teeth chattering with fear.
So you don’t have to slog through a lake of reviews and tips to find something you’re just going to put down after 10 minutes, Cult of Mac has waded through the web to compile our weekly list of the coolest new bits in movies, music, gadgets and anything else that should be on your radar.
This week we’ve been treated to a media blitz by Brad Pitt that’s produced one of the week’s funniest videos, an epic World War II tank movie, and a hilarious break-dancing competition. We’ve also found a nonfiction book with enough violence and betrayal to rival Game of Thrones, and a gorgeous iPhone 6 case that will replace your wallet much better than Apple Pay.
