(opens in new tab)

Gorgeous Greenlight projects. A planned Left 4 Dead 2 map on meta-horror. Dildo bats, crazy cats, and space hats. What does it all mean?

  • Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard almost worked with Valve (opens in new tab) on a potential Left 4 Dead 2 map pack tie-in.
  • The Secret World gets a new director (opens in new tab) , former lead content designer Joel Bylos, and reveals the name of its next Issue update as "The Cat God." Let's hope Bylos didn't have to endure through an elaborate initiation ceremony involving complicated hand gestures.
  • The entirety of Saints Row: The Third's DLC is included in the upcoming Full Package version (opens in new tab) releasing on November 9 for $50.
  • Super-long Assassin's Creed 3 gameplay video (opens in new tab) reveals Connor actually talking. Oh, and chopping people's faces in.
