See Left 4 Dead 2's cast in Resident Evil 6
by Jordan Devore

Resident Evil 6 is out today on Steam and all I can say is, hey, points for trying. If you want to play this game, doing so on PC is by all accounts the way to go. Following up on its announcement of a crossover with Left 4 Dead 2 and Valve, Capcom has shared a video of what happens when the two franchises collide. It's every bit as weird as I expected, but that's far from a bad thing.

This footage shows off Coach, Nick, Ellis, and Rochelle in the new The Mercenaries: No Mercy mode as well as The Witch and Mini-Tanks that help add to the already chaotic on-screen action. This content will come by way of a free update on April 5, 2013.

The best part of this arrangement is that with the arrival of Coach in RE6, we're one step closer to having Uncle Phil in a Resident Evil game. Do me proud, modders.

PSN is better than Steam due to Bronies and pro gamers?

Every now and then, I stumble upon something written by somebody else that I find interesting enough to share with you, my lovely readers. They needn't be written by developers or pundits, either. Take, for example, this humb...

Helm's Deep map added to official Left 4 Dead 2 servers

The Lord of the Rings-inspired Helm's Deep Reborn map for Left 4 Dead 2 really was one of the highlights of my journey through the Steam Workshop. It's nice, then, to see a nod from the team at Valve -- the Survival mode-only...

My quest to find the best mods for Left 4 Dead 2

Mods are hardly new for Left 4 Dead 2, but now that Valve has added full Steam Workshop support, it's easier than ever to find and install user-created content. Literally, it's as easy as locating a promising-looking mod with...

VELOCIRAPTORS!!!

Okay, so this is a bit of an old mod but it's making a comeback now that the Steam Workshop is live for Left 4 Dead 2. Yes. Play as velociraptors in Left 4 Dead 2. So. Good. Velociraptors [Left 4 Dead 2, Via Reddit]

Zombies with hats: Left 4 Dead 2 Workshop is live

Valve may resubmit Left 4 Dead 2 in Australia

The cuts made to Left 4 Dead 2 on its release in Australia were another example of the country's inconsistent rating system before the recent introduction of an R18+ rating. Valve is now considering resubmitting the co-op zom...

Simon Pegg endorses 'Left 4 Winchester' mod

Simon Pegg's love of zombies and indeed Left 4 Dead 2 is well documented, but it could be that his blessing will breathe new life into a stagnant mod. Left 4 Winchester was a mod started in 2009 based on the comedy zombie hit...

Free Left 4 Dead crossover DLC released for PAYDAY on PC photo
Free Left 4 Dead crossover DLC released for PAYDAY on PC
by Jordan Devore

That collaborative Mercy Hospital Heist for PAYDAY: The Heist is now available for free on Steam. The original reveal for this content was rather unexpected, but I've since grown to like it, conceptually. The fact that it doesn't cost anything to play certainly helps.

In addition to this mission, Overkill Software has added a new zombie theme and, for those of you with Left 4 Dead or Left 4 Dead 2 installed, wearable in-game zombie masks. This content is all wrapped together nicely in an update for PAYDAY, so you won't even have to seek out a download link.

A future patch will add further challenges and Steam Achievements, according to Overkill.

WOAH! Left 4 Dead running on a PlayStation Vita

Through magic, hacking, and ungodly trickery you can see Valve's Left 4 Dead running on a PS Vita. Well, kinda. One YouTube user, digitalarts001, has tweaked the PlayStation Suite to let him control Left 4 Dead running a PC ...
