Today in the PC Gamer office, deadline excitement was upon us. There was some running around and screaming, but everything turned out fine in the end, apart from the bit when we got invaded by monsters, but you can read all about that below.

Being on deadline meant we had to be EXTRA STRONG in the face of all of today's interesting news. There was no time to speculate at length about what might happen in Meet the Medic, there was no time to argue about what rooms we'd like to see added to Eve's Incarna update, and no time to disagree with Vaas's definition of insanity in Far Cry 3. Instead, we invite you all to have those debates for us in the comments below. Read on for your daily hit of pure PC gaming news.

Today in the PC Gamer office, monsters invaded. This happens surprisingly regularly, thanks to the amazing entries we get for our PC Gamer UK mag competitions. This month, we asked you to make us a monster. The entries were so good we had to line them up and show them to everyone. What's your favourite monster in PC gaming?
