Left 4 Dead 2 Mutation Returns

The Left 4 Dead Blog has details on the return of the Gib Fest mutation for Left 4 Dead 2, saying: "For our coop mutation this week we return to everyone’s favorite Gib Fest. Simple, go play." They also announce they are also "featuring" Realism Versus, saying: "This week we added quicker spawns for the infected. If you haven’t played recently, you are missing out on one of the most intense Left 4 Dead 2 competitive experiences. It is like regular Versus but no health kits in the world, no glows on fellow survivors, harder to kill commons and now faster Special Infected spawns (coming soon to the 360)." Steam News has the accompanying patch notes that include balance tweaks in addition to the mutation, saying: "The following changes are for the PC and will be available for the XBOX 360 in a future update." The patch notes follow.

Everyone has an M60 with infinite ammo. Best played on expert I find, where the friendly fire is a killer. Not terribly exciting, I was expecting something new.
