Telltale has dusted off its green, felt battlefield of chips and difficult-to-remember card combinations for Poker Night 2, and it's calling up another quirky cast hailing from games and TV/film to humorously overreact whenever you're dealt a superior hand. You'll practice your poker face against Borderlands' Clatrap, Brock Samson from The Venture Bros. show, the beady-eyed Sam from Sam & Max, and the always-groovy Ash Williams from Army of Darkness.

In good/bad news, Borderlands' beloved/behated mascot Claptrap has been given another webseries, where he's free to spout his mildly amusing/mildly annoying jokes with none of that shooting or looting business standing in his way. Episode 1 of Season 2 shows some 'behind the scenes' footage of the game, which is almost as exciting as when Will Smith used to run behind the set in The Fresh Prince. Actually, much less exciting, but even so this is a kinda funny/kinda not funny way to spend nearly three minutes of your life.

According to a Claptrap-penned love letter to future Borderlands 2 PC players, the PC version will include support for higher resolutions, native multiplayer matchmaking, remappable keybindings, LAN support, and bunches of other improvements over the first game.

In Claptrap's words: "I'm makin' something brand new. It's called Borderlands 2, and it's just for you. Sure, I may be sharing it with those fine ladies on the 360 and PS3, but they don't have what we have. The passion. The sensuality. The improved native multiplayer matchmaking."
