Poker Night 2 Review | GIZORAMA

GIZORAMA - Poker Night At The Inventory was released towards the end of 2010 by Telltale Games and featured the player playing no limit Texas Hold’em poker with ten thousand dollar buy ins against Penny Arcade’s Tycho, Sam & Max’s Sam, Team Fortress’ Heavy, and Homestar Runner’s Strong Bad. It came to fruition after the developers wondered what video game characters did in their off hours. Telltale decided to up the ante with a new set of curmudgeons in Poker Night 2 for XBLA, PSN, Steam, and iOS. Oddly enough the Steam version is priced at $5 while the console versions are at a $10 equivalent price tag.

Poker Night 2 returns players to The Inventory, a speakeasy sort of place, with Captain Reginald Van Winslow from the Monkey Island series returning to hosting duties serving up Texas and Omaha Hold’em Poker. The Venture Bros.’ Brock Samson, Sam & Max’s Sam, Evil Dead’s Ash Williams, and Borderlands’ CL4P-TP fill out the cast of players for this go around and the Portal’s GLaDOS is featured as the dealer. Sam’s buddy Max returns to provide sidekick humor and Borderlands’ Moxxi silently serves up drinks. It really turns out to be quite the ensemble of 5 very different personalities all humorous in their own right but hilarious as a group. (Poker Night 2, Xbox 360) 3/5
