Left 4 Dead DLC, Battlefield 1943 Live, Lego Battles

I call zombie bullshit.Tidbits for those of you who don't obsessively trawl the gaming news:

- Left 4 Dead downloadable content on its way in the form of a "Survival" pack, featuring one new game mode (Survival) and two new Versus campaigns. I assume these are less "new" campaigns than they are adaptations of Blood Harvest Death Toll and Dead Air, the two single player campaigns that didn't make the jump to Versus first time around. (link)

- Battlefield 1943 (a sequel to Battlfield 1942, which I like to refer to as "the one that didn't suck" - take that, internet!) is getting a release on XBox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, which makes me all happy inside. (link)

- The next Traveler's Tales Lego game will not, apparently, be the rumoured Lego Harry Potter or Lego Lord of the Rings but instead the much less exciting Lego Battles, which features no licensed properties but does have plenty of action from classic Lego lines such as "Castles" and "Pirates". Yay? (link)

Oooh, I like your first tidbit...assuming the PC gets the new campaigns too - can't see why they wouldn't.

Incidentally, the two campaigns missing from Versus are Dead Air and Death Toll, not Blood Harvest....at least they are on the PC. :)

Oops, sorry, I will edit.

I thought I'd done the conclusion to Death Toll in Versus, but now that you mention it I have clear memories of playing the Blood Harvest cornfield as a Smoker so I must have been mistaken.

Be nice to see a bit more variety in L4D, much as I liked it.

Also, since you asked about it in an earlier blog post, you can find some Cletus Clay video content over on YouTube from today :)

I was actually hoping Traveller's Tales would just do a straight Lego game - stop shoehorning Lego into every franchise they can find and actually find the benefit of using Lego in a game mechanic.

Alex: There is indeeed!

"When cousins marry... a new breed of hero is born!" I like it.

Grant: I don't care what kind of Lego game they make, so long as they fix that level design.
