Here’s a trailer for Telltale’s Poker Night 2, which has been loaded into the release cannon and launches today. I still hadn’t processed the fact that the announcement wasn’t an Early April Lie so this is the first time I’ve properly acknowledged its existence. The inclusion of Brock Samson is most pleasing, although it has mostly led me to crave a H.Jon Benjamin character. Archer vs Brock would be great no matter what the context. Heck, I’d gladly take John McGuirk. Claptrap’s voice is like a cheese grater ravaging my ears but Sam is soothing and dry, so perhaps they’ll counter each other. But Ash could be the real disappointment. Look and listen.
Without Campbell’s voice, Ash is about as much use to me as a Thermos flask made out of digestive biscuits. Or, indeed, as much use as an Evil Dead film without Ash. Not that I’ve actually seen the new one yet but is it really time reconstruct a cabin in the woods already?
Here’s some McGuirk.
