SALES & DEALS
The Colonel Sanders dating sim was one of Steam's biggest releases for September
With September now a few weeks behind us, Valve has compiled a list of the 20 biggest new games of that month. As always, because it doesn't provide actual sales figures, the list is chronological, but Valve, being Valve, doesn't send these things out without a few interesting bits of trivia for background.
Eight of the games in the list are either entering or leave Early Access, demonstrating that it "continues to be a unique and valuable option for creating a product with involvement and feedback from the community," and nine of them— Green Hell, Gears 5, Session, Ni no Kuni, Crying Suns, Noita, Flotsam, Cube World and Maelstrom—are from developers launching games on Steam for the first time, although it's maybe a little disingenuous to lump Gears 5 and Ni No Kumi together with games like Crying Suns and Noita, .

This mod for Fallout 4 aims to overhaul and improve the animations of the main character
Onymaru has released a brand new mod for Fallout 4 that aims to overhaul and improve the animations of the main character. From the looks of it, the modder was able to make the animation transitions smoother. Not only that, but he has improved some other stances and some idle animations.
The end result is cool and I’m pretty sure that a lot of Fallout 4 will appreciate this mod. Do note that this mod is not complete yet, meaning that there will be some bugs here and there. Still, the modder aims to add more animations via future releases.

EverQuest Classic is coming, thanks to a dev approved fan project
Nostalgic Everquest fans will be happy this week thanks to the launch of Project 1999: Green, a fan-made (and dev approved) server that will mirror the day one, vanilla version of the classic MMO. Not only that, but the project will progress through patches and content updates at the same pace as the original.
The server launches on October 25 (the next day in Australia), and will bear all the strengths, weaknesses, and 1999-nesses of the earliest Everquest days. Then, in keeping with the general pace of content updates, the Plane of Fear update will roll out in January, followed by Plane of Hate and Plane of Sky in April and August respectively.

Players are re-writing Borderlands 3 one sight gag at a time thanks to a minor modding discovery. While the real guts of the game aren't easily accessible, Gearbox appear to have left their pre-rendered cutscenes (used in overlays and on video-screens in game) in plain old MP4 video format, letting you simply replace them with whatever tickles your funnybone. Unsurprisingly, things got weird, fast, starting with "Dooger" on Twitter testing the waters with a bizarre russian Shrimp rave.
