Since our staff is responsible for covering pretty much everything related to the video game industry on a daily basis, it can be tough to post all the stories we think our readers would like to see. Videos go unwatched, new release dates are missed and silly quotes just float away without ever being heard. So, instead of ignoring the news that slipped through the cracks each week, we decided to put it all in one convenient place!
This week, we take a look at the box art for Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, a new trailer for Monster Hunter 4 and a slick montage for Halo 4’s multiplayer.
‘Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon’ box art is just plain spooky
No, this isn’t the latest version of Pink Floyd’s legendary album. A new Luigi’s Mansion game is coming to the 3DS, and Nintendo has just released the box art for all to enjoy.
This March release has plenty of Luigi’s fans grabbing their vacuums and knocking on every ghost-riddled object across their houses in anticipation, but for now, they’ll just have to be satisfied with knowing what the final product will look like.
Spoilers: Luigi will freak out a bunch and yell for Mario. Mysteriously, no one will answer him.

‘Borderlands 2’ DLC retail release listed on classification board
Thanks to a new Classification Board listing, we now know that the two most recent DLC packs for Gearbox’s Borderlands 2 will be available for purchase at Australian retailers.
This pack will contain both “Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty” and “Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage,” with none of the future or past content being considered. A similar package was offered for the original Borderlands, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise if other territories see this content. The disc is expected to be available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with PC unlisted at this time.

del Toro still working on ‘inSANE’
Director Guillermo del Toro may have a movie or two on his plate, but that doesn’t mean his once-canceled horror title, inSANE, isn’t still in the front of his mind.
The survival-horror game was dropped by the struggling THQ, yet still seems to be headed toward a full release. How, you ask?
“We are in talks with a very, very big company. I can’t say who, but it’s one of the big ones,” del Toro said. “They really responded to the game, they responded to what we were trying.
“Some of the devices of the game I need to update, because now I’ve seen them in other games that just came out. That always happens. But the principle we’re trying to do with the game is to make it a really immersive narrative experience. It’s still a really challenging proposal.”
Hopefully we’ll be able to get a peek at it sooner rather than later.
