Left 4 Dead 2 Details, Screenshots

Valve announces their plans for showing off Left 4 Dead 2 at the Penny Arcade Expo, where they will unveil the Dark Carnival campaign, the Jockey boss, the "uncommon common" Zombie Clown, and items "being offered as a pre-sell exclusive with select retailers." This is accompanied by a batch of new Left 4 Dead 2 screenshots showing off these characters, and here's word:
Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2), the sequel to the best-selling and critically-acclaimed action thriller from Valve is being shown this weekend at The Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) in Seattle, Washington.

The game is available to play, by the press and public, at Valve and Microsoft's Xbox 360 booth.

After debuting "The Parish" campaign (set in the New Orleans' French Quarter) at E3 and "Swamp Fever" at Comic Con San Diego, Dark Carnival is the third of the five campaigns shipping with L4D2 this fall.

Valve is also unveiling a new Boss infected monster coming in the full version of Left 4 Dead 2. Known as "The Jockey" this is the third new Boss infected from L4D2 revealed thus far (the Charger was revealed at E3, The Spitter at Comic Con). The Jockey lets you attack lone Survivors and wrestle control of their movement away from them-into fire, off ledges, or straight into the middle of a zombie horde.

In addition to the new campaign and boss monster the PAX showing of L4D2 marks the debut of the "Zombie Clown," the "uncommon common" exclusive to the Dark Carnival campaign, and a few more of the 20-plus new items coming in the full product (electric guitar, machete, and the American baseball bat being offered as a pre-sell exclusive with select retailers).

Coming exclusively to Xbox 360 and PC on November 17, Left 4 Dead 2 promises to set a new benchmark for co-operative action games and become one of 2009's marquee titles.

Why's this game have a gangsta bitch in it?

And that press ad photo thing that's at a ridiculous resolution... Check out how fucking shitty it looks. Whoever they hired to make that really did a half-assed job. It's a combination of in-game assets with some photos of models standing there, and then the person who mocked this poster up just brushed on the thing to make it look like a painting. ...Except it looks like it was just brushed on in Photoshop without putting any real effort in.

There are brush strokes with fucking ugly Photoshop brushes in some cases where you can see brush "tiling," and the stuff underneath it gives away their lack of effort. You can see pixellation in the game screenshot bits, and the photos of the actors are really lazily brushed over.

Is this lack of skillful execution indicative of the creators of the game as well?
