by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Just moments ago, Valve revealed a brand new trailer for Left 4 Dead 2 at Microsoft's press conference. Gee, what a surprise!

L4D 2 will be out November 17 and is set to include melee weapons such as chainsaw, frying pans, axes, baseball bats and more. We're also going to see a deeper co-op mode and an advanced AI Director which will now be able to change the weather, world objects and pathways in addition to changing the enemy population.

Check back in a little while as we'll have the teaser trailer showing off some of the melee combat. Also, I TOLD YOU ALL, SUCKAS!

Check out our live blog for more on the Microsoft E3 09 press conference going on right now.

As innocuous and peaceful as Pinball seems now (hell, we can even play it in the airport during Orange Alerts), there was a time when a host of major American cities, including New York, outlawed the old ball and flappers.

In order to give some context for the nation's shit storm over a seemingly harmless game, let's take a quick dip into the chewing tobacco pouch of history. Turn your clocks all the way back to the year 1863, when one of our country's most revered presidents, Abraham Lincoln, played his first game of Pinball.
