Six days ago in this article, I said that Paul Gale Network had a new project that it’d be unveiling soon, in which I was planning on sharing by the end of this week, but it appears that it’ll get pushed into the next. It’s something new, different, and probably not what a lot of […]

2011′s Halloween Pumpkin: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

2011 marks my 14th video game theme pumpkin that I’ve made for Halloween. It’s amazing to me that since I’m now 28, I can officially say that I’ve been creating these things for literally half my life. 🙂 The pumpkin is of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and features Link slashing away with his […]

2010’s Halloween Pumpkin: Donkey Kong Country Returns

Here is my 13th video game themed pumpkin that I created for Halloween of 2010. I can’t believe that I’ve been doing these annually for nearly half my life (at this point in time, I’m 27). My subject was Donkey Kong Country Returns since the big ape’s game’s release is on November 19th. Since there […]

2009′s Halloween Pumpkin: New Super Mario Bros. Wii

When I went to E3 in 2009 and played New Super Mario Bros. Wii, I had an absolute blast, so I was really looking forward to when the game would come out later in the year, so to show my anticipation I decided that for my 12th video game themed pumpkin, I would carve New […]

2008′s Halloween Pumpkin: Ryu from Street Fighter IV

In the Fall of 2008, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom came out in Japan and Street Fighter IV was getting some major pushing by Capcom in preparation for its February, 2009 US launch. Suffice to say, I was excited as can be to be able to play both fighting games and since my favorite Street Fighter character […]

2007′s Halloween Pumpkin: Super Mario Galaxy

My most anticipated video game for 2007 absolutely had to be Super Mario Galaxy. But rather than create Mario on my pumpkin (which was very tempting, but I already did once before), I decided to go with Luma as the main “star” for my 10th video game themed pumpkin carving. Click here for a larger […]

2006′s Halloween Pumpkin: Nintendo Wii

In 2006, the next big thing was ready to come out on November 19th, and that was Nintendo’s Wii. Since Halloween was only a couple of week’s before the console’s launch, it got chosen to be my 9th video game pumpkin carving. Click here for a larger image. Fun fact: it was in Nintendo Power […]

2005′s Halloween Pumpkin: King Kong

In 2005, one of my favorite movies was getting a remake in Peter Jackson’s King Kong. I was so stoked for the movie and the game that for my 8th video game pumpkin, choosing the big gorilla was quite natural. It was also great that the game which came out for GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox, […]

2004’s Halloween Pumpkin: Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

My 7th video game themed pumpkin was of Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, which was coming out for Nintendo GameCube, PlayStaton 2, and Xbox on November 30th, 2004. This is the first year that I made a video of my pumpkin (man how I wish I did this for the first 6 creations), so you’ll […]

2003′s Halloween Pumpkin: Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3

For my sixth video game themed pumpkin, I carved out Mario holding a Koopa shell. The particular style I was going for was from the re-release of the classic Super Mario Bros. 3 NES game, on the Game Boy Advance, titled “Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3” and it was a really cool […]

2002′s Halloween Pumpkin: Metroid Prime

For my 2002 Halloween pumpkin, I decided to go with the biggest and best game of the holiday season…Nintendo and Retro Studios‘ Metroid Prime! This game, to this day, ranks amongst the best video games of all time. Just look at it’s overall ranking on for proof. Anyways, with the amazing live action commercial […]

2001’s Halloween Pumpkin: Nintendo GameCube

For Halloween in 2001, I decided to make a Nintendo GameCube pumpkin, since the system itself was set to come out in less than three weeks. As you’ll see in the picture below, I carved out both the console and the controller. Looking back, I’m pretty impressed with how I managed to get in all […]

2000’s Halloween Pumpkin: Majora’s Mask

My third video game themed pumpkin was of Majora’s Mask from 2000’s hit Nintendo 64 title, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. This year’s pumpkin took the most time yet to create because of all the tiny details that I wanted to include in the mask. I wish I had a digital camera back then […]
