Spooptober: Gregg the Grim Reaper

Food for thought: if one were the world’s best Conker’s Bad Fur Day player, it is possible that one might never, ever meet Gregg the Grim Reaper in his “home,” as it were. Given that I am not the best, let alone a sufficiently-okay player of Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Gregg’s is a face I…
