I’m no poker player. I’ve never played, hell, I don’t even know how to play! But it might be time to learn. Telltale Games sequel to Poker Nights at the Inventory, Poker Nights 2 has been announced and it features a great lineup of new characters. Joining you at the table will be Ash from Evil Dead, Sam of Sam & Max, Venture Bros.’ Brock Samson and Claptrap from Borderlands. And it gets better! The dealer is GlaDOS from the Portal franchise, so prepare for her opinionated insults while she deals.

The cast alone has me intrigued, but check out its announcement trailer,

I love that Brock’s playing The Walking Dead! Poker Nights 2 will release on PC, XBLA, and PSN sometime this month. Are you feeling lucky?

ABOVE: Proving once again that leather makes anything instantly bad-ass, comes this battle helmet from EPIC LEATHER. It was made on commission and inspired by the dire wolves from Game of Thrones. It’s too aggressively cool for words.  [ObviousWinner]

Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerd based art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every net based nook and cranny. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly Nerd Art Dumps.

Sometimes fighting supernatural threats just needs a female touch, so why not have suit up occasional ghost buster and resident Ghostbuster‘s secretary Janine Melnitz to tackle the ghosts and goblins. Nothing sexier then a woman in uniform, right fellas? Judging by the boys reactions though they need to step up their game, otherwise they’ll be looking for a new job (again!) [Deviant Art]

Hit the jump for Pokemon, Lord of the Rings and MOAR

We here are no strangers to a good mashup. Often we feature them in our daily roundup of neato bits and bobs, Nerdy Bits. Other times they are so fantastic, just so freakin’ awesome, we need to share them immediately.

Such is the case with this brilliant video from Harry Callaghan (Harry101UK). In fact, this video exceeds most mashups because it doesn’t simply take the audio of one thing and mash it with the visuals of another. No, he’s created something new and marvelous.

This Is Aperture” features GLaDOS, Wheatley and those turrets who kept trying to kill you as you made your way through Portal and Portal 2 singing to the tune of “This Is Halloween” from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Complete with new and hilariously appropriate lyrics.

At this point I’m sure you’re twitchin’ from excitement so let’s just watch it already!

Hey Valve, we love Jonathan Coulton, too, but come Portal 3, I think you should give this guy a call.

Yesterday we shared the amazing video of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s commentary for Total Recall and I mentioned how the Conan the Barbarian commentary track was even more amazing. It is, and if you need the proof, here you go. (io9)
