The Daily Hotness: Tasty brains

Jim brought us a lot of Left 4 Dead related content today. He’ll be bringing us even more stuff in the coming week. Until then, it’s good to know that the Hunter Smoker and Boomers will be getting new models for Left 4 Dead 2

The Memory Card is back for a new season, Dale checked out Persona’s soundtrack, Dark Void has been delayed, Gearbox is not working on a Halo title, the Asteroids radio drama is better than whatever the film will turn out to be and plenty more happened on 07/30/09.
