Costume Quest: Double Fine Return To PC

Gentlethings, prepare to perform your happy dance. Unexpectedly and suddenly, Psychonauts-makers Double Fine have ended their silly sabbatical from PC games, and announced that they'll be releasing their Halloween-themed RPG Costume Quest on Steam. When? Why, it's there right now. Happy, happy days. And hopefully CQ is but the first of many of the Tim Schafer-headed studio's titles due to return to the motherland. In…
