HD Projector

On 31 October, a projector is always a cracking piece of kit to have. It could used to beam ghostly images over the windows of your home, or set up your own secret cinema, complete with cobwebbed room, flickering light and director's cut copy of Night of the Living Dead.

They're not exactly limited to the one day of the year, either. Let's face it, with mankind's inability to find contentment, our large flat-screen TVs are starting to look a bit small these days. Upgrading to an HD projector might be a good idea in the build up to Crimbo too.

The BenQ W1200 is a worthy choice, projecting images up to 300in in size with a 1080p resolution. As HD projectors go, it's on the cheaper side of things too. You can read what we thought about the BenQ W1200 here on Reg Hardware.

House of the Dead: Overkill

Arcade visitors will nostalgically remember pumping these zombies with lead in exchange for a few 10p pieces. The latest installment of House of the Dead - number five, to be precise - has come in leaps and bounds since those days.

Successfully launched on the Wii a couple of years back, Headstrong Games has revamped it for the PlayStation 3 in time for this year's Halloween, and it's PS Move compatible too.

There's nothing quite like taking out hordes of zombies on this sinister day, and with most of the human ones locked up for rioting, chances are you may have to partake virtually. Look no further.
