On Monday October 31st we'll repost the image with the winning caption and the winner will be the Official 2011 PC Gamer Halloween Caption Hero!

But if you just can't work up the inspiration for a great caption, take heart: you can still enjoy a Halloween you'll remember for years to come if you build yourself this nice flamethrowing jack-o'-lantern.

Have at it, peeps!

Radiant Story is Skyrim's unique storytelling feature that acts as a narrator for the player. In practice, it'll look at the history of your playthrough and cater upcoming quests to your character. It might, for example, add context by switching out a kidnapped character for an NPC you've previously met.

Executive Producer at Bethesda, Todd Howard, let Tom into a secret while they discussed the feature a few weeks ago. Radiant Story was creating crime-conscious chickens.
