Poker video games aren’t usually done well. They’re historically cheap, flavorless games without a lot of personality. Telltale’s Poker Night 2 does not suffer from those problems, particularly when it comes to its dealer, GLaDOS.
Telltale Games' Poker Night 2 came out yesterday for the Xbox 360, and it has some pretty obscure references in it. Hell, it even references games that aren't really out yet. Can you catch the indie game reference in this clip?
Telltale Games' Poker Night 2 hit the Xbox 360 today, leaving PC players two days and PlayStation 3 gamers until next week to figure out if they're all-in or not. I'm torn.
If you're going to do a crossover video game, then unlockables are as mandatory as inside-joke dialogue. And if you're bringing the Xbox 360 and PS3 to the Poker Night franchise alongside the PC, then you've got to do something specific for each platform.
Telltale's Poker Night 2 will contain a whole bevy of unlockables, according to this trailer—not just for Poker Night 2 itself, but also for Borderlands 2 and Team Fortress 2, along with themes for PS3 and avatar items for Xbox 360. The game's coming out next week, on April 23.
