    Pretty cool news coming out of PAX. Also check out these new screens. Is that a new "Special"?

    Left 4 Dead 2's Preorder-only Weapon Explained

    Tucked in a press release announcing Left 4 Dead 2's arrival at the Penny Arcade Expo was the news that Valve would be offering an exclusive melee weapon to those that pre-order the zombie shooter sequel from "select retailers."

    The weapon is an American baseball bat, and has its own unique characteristics--in other words, it's not just a re-skinned version of the cricket bat, Valve told us today.
    However, if you're playing the wait-and-see game with Left 4 Dead 2, you'll still have a chance to use the bat post-release depending on your server makeup.

    "How it'll work is, if you're playing with somebody that's pre-ordered it, everybody playing gets it," Valve's Chet Faliszek explained.

    Faliszek had no other details on the deal, other than the fact that the weapon will be available on both PC and console.

    It sucks that Valve dislikes the PS3 tho.

    meh, i can't wait to play through some more campaigns, i do think this engine is getting a little too old though, the character models look great, but the maps are lacking the same polish to me.

    Still, its a valve game, and it's a zombie apocalypse. whats not to love

    "The Jocky" Jumps on survivors backs and can make them walk. SO you could make them walk into a witch in VS.

    LOL. "You must be this tall... TO DIE!"

    I'm glad they don't try to get people to take these seriously.
