Flush With Extras!
If sitting at a table among 5 of pop-cultures’ most notorious quick-witted bad-asses isn’t enough to satisfy your poker addiction, we have good news: Telltale Games is upping the ante.
So you just bluffed Brock Samson, Ash from Evil Dead, Claptrap and Sam (of Sam and Max fame) out of a massive pile of chips. Congrats! Now, if you can successfully exit the room before they pull your spine through your spleen (or vice versa), you can commemorate your victory with some drool-worthy virtual swag. Deck out the walls of the Inventory with your favorite theme, and make sure your opponents never live down your total poker dominance.
A Veritable Royal Sampler
Completing challenges in-game will unlock fantastic upgrades: Players on all platforms can open up hilarious Borderlands 2 heads and skins and new coats of paint for the Inventory itself. Steam players can also net special gear and skins for Team Fortress 2. Xbox Live players can access glorious avatar upgrades and PSN players can claim gorgeous premium XMB themes.
As an aside…with all the Venture Brothers love, is it possible that a Telltale series surrounding Brock, the Doc and the Bros is in the works? I’d type more speculation, but my fingers are now firmly crossed!
Telltale Games’ Poker Night 2 is now available for PSN (N. America – April 30th 2013), XBLA and Steam (April 26th 2013) with iOS and PSN EU coming in the very near future)
