Every October since 2013, Roblox has offered the ultimate Halloween troll to its users: a limited edition Headless Horseman package that is only available during the month of October.
I describe it as a bit of a troll to Roblox users, since the package is priced at 31,000 Robux, which is the in-game currency in Roblox. If you were to buy 31,000 Robux in the Roblox store, it would cost you just over $300.
Despite the cost of the Headless Horseman package, Roblox says that more than 11,000 users have purchased the package since 2013.

Speaking of Fortnite, Apple filed a countersuit to Fortnite, with the brand removing the "Sign in with Apple" option. There are ways to resync your account before the game is removed, but I won't get into it deeply. it is also reported that a few days prior to that, Apple terminated Epic Games' Apple store account and deleted everything that is there.
Minecraft, which gained popularity recently when Fortnite is going down in its popularity, is getting compatibility with PSVR, which is the virtual reality thing that is offered by PlayStation. It will come "later this month", as reported by the games creator Mojang.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell apologized about the league's response to Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem. Goodell said that he was sorry for that, and removed everything that the league had done to keep the QB out. Even though it's not gaming related, the thing now is that Kapernick is added to Madden 21, which despite the trash talk, keeps going on. Kaepernick is higher than Cam Newton, and other QBs.
See you guys next time, and those of us at allyourscreens wish you well.
