Army Of Laughness: Telltale Games’ Poker Night 2

Cake groovy marginally volatile hostage situation

I’ve only played poker twice! Yet here I am writing a post about a poker game! That’s the kind of consummate professional I am. I know enough about poker to get away with this, though – for instance, I know that if someone plays five Jacks at once it’s called a Belgian Tickle and everyone else in the game has to take their trousers off. I know that if anyone scores 21, they immediately have to give their car keys to a homeless person. And I know that Telltale’s first attempt at a poker-based game starring a selection of pop-cultural characters was disappointing.

Poker Night At The Inventory Released Today

By Quintin Smith on November 22nd, 2010.

We’ve got mere hours to go until comedy poker sim Poker Night At The Inventory unlocks over at Steam. Have you got it pre-ordered? It’s cheap! A paltry £2.92. That is literally no money.

In case you’ve forgotten, this bizarre camembert-powered dream of a game has you playing cards with Max from Sam & Max, Tycho from Penny Arcade, Strong Bad from Homestar Runner and The Heavy from Team Fortress 2. As a neat extra, beating each of these characters earns you an item of theirs that can be equipped in Team Fortress 2. The latest trailer (which I don’t believe we’ve posted) lies below, and John’s Wot I Think lies in wait at some point in the near future.

By John Walker on September 3rd, 2010.

It's not a sight I was expecting to see.
