10 must-see videos of the week

Video games that will creep you out, ghost-hunting tech, and Apple's big announcements.

Greetings CNET viewers! We've got another great lineup for you this week.

Halloween is just around the corner, and we suggest that this year you ditch the horror flicks, and instead get your scare on by playing one of the spooktacular video games listed in this week's Top 5 countdown. And ever wanted to go ghost hunting? Turns out, all you may need are a few gadgets from your local electronics store. CNET'S Sumi Das tags along with a professional ghost hunter and checks out the tech she uses to investigate the reportedly haunted Brookdale Lodge.

And don't think we forgot about this week's big reveals. Apple Byte is breaking down everything you need to know about this week's Apple event, including new iPads, Macs and OS X Maverick. Plus: We go in-depth with the Microsoft Surface Pro 2, which went on sale earlier this week, and get the skinny Nokia's Lumia 1520, the first phone to take raw photos.

1. Apple Byte: Introducing the iPad Air. Seriously, that's what they're calling it.

2. Top 5: Spookiest video games

It's easy to make a violent video game, but it takes craft to make a game truly scary. CNET's Donald Bell counts down the five spookiest games of the past year.

3. Average tech to find the supernatural

If you're in the mood to go ghost hunting this Halloween, stop by your local electronics store first. While the spirits may be supernatural, the devices used to try to detect them can be low tech. CNET'S Sumi Das went along with a professional ghost hunter as she used an array of gadgets in the reportedly haunted Brookdale Lodge.
