Purported shots of a canceled Half Life 2 episode called Return to Ravenholm have been posted over on ValveTime. The alleged screenshots show off a collaborative effort between Valve and Arkane Studios. Half Life designer Marc Laidlaw confirmed back in January 2012 that the episode was in the works at one time, and despite some “cool stuff” having been created, it was canceled due to the headcrab and zombie contents being “pretty much played out,” and it taking place “sometime before the end of Episode 2.” Go have a look at the shots for yourself through the link.

Did you read all the books in Dishonored? I admit I may have skimmed a few, but in my defence, a report on PC Gamer suggests there are 40,000 words of text in Dishonored, which is a reasonable novel’s length. I did listen to a lot of dialogue though, and probably so did you, as it has almost 90,000 words of voice work. Arkane drew inspiration from a diverse range of sources for the immersive sim’s colourful writing, including authors such as Herman Melville, Mervyn Peake, Thomas Burke, Charles Dickens, H. P. Lovecraft, Michael Moorcock and Neil Gaiman; movies like Gangs of New York, Perfume and Anonymous; and music such as The Decemberists, Picaresque and Her Majesty. Also, you can set people on fire; still one of my favourite games.
