After three years of work the user-created Back to School campaign for Left 4 Dead 2 has reached version 1.0. You can download it now from the ModDB page, where they've also uploaded a trailer that gave me a terrible hunger to play Left 4 Dead again. A terrible, terrible hunger that not even this egg mayonnaise sandwich can help with. If only those eggs were more, I don't know ... brainy. Weird.

Man, I love the Oculus Rift. If it was a girl, I'd like to kiss it. But it's not. It's a virtual reality headset that blew my socks clean off when I got to demo it at Gamescom. Click through to see footage of the Oculus Rift on my face, along with an exclusive interview with Palmer Luckey, throughly nice man and creator of the incredi-tech. He even reveals which games he'd most like to see ported to the device. You might be surprised at his choices.

Dead Island creators trademark Dead World

A report on Siloconera is saying that Techland have coined the "Dead World" trademark, strongly suggesting that a bigger, bloodier sequel to Dead Island is in the works. In spite of the fact that Techland put out the wrong version of the game on release day, Dead Island ended up doing quite well. It filled the deserted open world zombie survival niche quite nicely with some horrendous gore and a big, beautiful island. You can find out what we thought in our Dead Island review.

Dead Island is out next Tuesday in the US, and Friday across the rest of the world. In case you've forgotten what's in it, Techland have released a new video showing zombies, blood, more zombies, machinegun fire, explosions and MORE BLOOD. Dead Island promises an open island, explorable in four player co-op. Check out our Dead Island preview for a better idea of what to expect. One thing's for sure. There will be blood.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Rezurrection screenshots put zombies in space

Tom Senior at

When we said the next Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack would feature a new zombie level set on the moon, it wasn't out of some Jelly Baby fuelled sugar rush. It's real. Activision have released four new screenshots to prove it. They show plenty of the dessicated moonbase around which the map is set, and are infested with space zombies, naturally.

Black Ops Re-zombie-urrection is due out on Xbox machines on August 23. Activision haven't dished out a PC release date yet, but based on the form of previous map packs, it'll arrive several weeks later on PC. You'll find the new screens of Moon below, along with two shots of one of the four re-worked Call of Duty: World at War zombie levels included in the map pack.
