Undeyeing: Team Fortress 2 Halloween

I want the Invisible Man Spy outfit. WANT IT

Team Fortress 2’s sinewy neck of content has been slashed open once more, pumping forth a bloody torrent of hats and features. It’s the third annual Halloween update, and it brings full-body costumes for every class (including a fantastic “teleporter gone wrong” Brundlefly for the Engineer), an update for classic King of the Hill map Viaduct turning it into Eyeaduct, which features dimension-jumping slipgates and a spooktacular boss fight with the Demoman’s demon-posessed eyeball, and finally another superb Halloween-themed comic book depicting the origins of said demon eyeball. It’s all still Free to Play of course, with the new costume items being found randomly throughout the map or available to buy immediately in the MannCo store. A short demonstration of the boss battle is after the jump.

Traaaaaiiiiins: Railworks 3 Trains vs Zombies

I recognise that train's logo from my real life and that makes the imminence of a poorly animated zombie invasion seem all the more real!

Full scream ahead! Ahem. Actually, I think they’re mostly diesels, but that should not distract from the fact that Trains Vs Zombies has just been released as DLC for Railworks 3. My mind is still boggling because I only just discovered that this is a thing that now exists. But it is true and to prove I am not deluded, observe the visual evidence below! You could also just follow the link above, but stick with me AND ENJOY THE RIDE BECAUSE THERE IS ALWAYS A POSSIBILITY THAT IT COULD BE YOUR LAST RIDE!

Frankenstein’s Modster: TF2 Halloween Mods

It's a week of updates, plural, and they are in no way alive

While Valve prepare to release their Team Fortress 2 Halloween update, the mod community have been highlighting some of the most bone-chilling, spine-tingling items submitted to the Steam Workshop in a week-long event rather splendidly titled, Night of the Living Update. So, do you want the temperature of your skeletal apparatus to decrease? Do you desire spinal sensations of a peculiar nature? Traipse to the website and explore the blood-soaked offerings on display, some of which may make their way into the official update. This is particularly horrible. With two more nights of updates to go, I’m hoping for a Cthulhu mask. What’s the neatest thing you’ve found in the Workshop?

Scream Fortress: TF2 Gets NPC Boss Monster

Make soup of him.

Grab your Jarate bottles, it’s about to get all Halloweeny. In the second, and thus now annual, All Hallows Eve update for Team Fortress 2, the game has added its first ever NPC boss monster. He’s the Horseless Headless Horsemann (indeed, a long lost member of the Mann family), and only appears in a new spooky map, Mann Manor. He’s randomly generated, and DOESN’T HAVE A HEAD… OR A HORSE. Cripes!

Minecraft is to receive a big update on the 31st October, to celebrate it being four days after my birthday. And Halloween. It contains some features many have been waiting for, of fearing, including fishing, scarier monsters, and portal-based fast travel. And torches don’t last forever? The full details are below.

Today’s Weighted Companion Cube Post…

…is the Weighted Companion Cube Post about the Weighted Companion Cube pumpkin.

(Click for more). Especially apt, of course, because it involves burning. Well done, expert pumpkin-carver-man Jimbojw.

Team Fortress 2 Cosplay

You’ve already seen the Portal Halloween costume – now here’s the Team Fortress 2 one (click pic to embiggen).

Extramegoultra bonus points for actually fricking building the Heavy’s gun.

Big thanks to Thiefsie for sending it over. Its original source has been located here, where you’ll find a bunch of other images of Janvitos and his RED chums.

Update: and Thiefsie follows up his find with this (click to see full version in its original home):

I wouldn’t like to say which one is most awesome. Because they are both awesome.
