Poker Night at the Inventory Releases on Monday


Telltale's 'hero' mash up card game, Poker Night at the Inventory, will be released on November 22.

Quote:
The team has been hard at work to finish the game for you guys and it's simply looking awesome! Come Monday, you'll finally get the chance to beat Penny Arcade's Tycho, Max, Team Fortress 2's Heavy, and Strong Bad in a little game of Texas Hold Em' and win some Poker Night exclusive Team Fortress 2 items from them in the process.
The game is only $5 full price, and you can get it for $4.50 if you pre-order from Steam.

I already pre-ordered mine! This may very well be the first franchise cross-over card game since the original Hoyle Book of Games: Volume 1 came out back in '89. But even that was all Sierra characters. Still, great game.

I wonder if they're considering an XBLA/PSN port?

I like the idea of playing games with that lineup of characters but I'm really not interested in poker.

heh Kept seeing the title, but didn't bother to look into it until now. Looks like it'll be totally worth the $5, went ahead and pre-ordered.

The game should have Guybrush though. Guess it was prolly due to licensing stuff with LucasArts.

heh No Guybrush, but it is hosted by Winslow, so not a total Monkey Island miss. The dialogue is great, and you can unlock tables and decks as far as I've seen. The game has a nice stat tracking setup. Easily worth the $5, if you're into light poker games with talking characters.

Strongbad is the big stack and goes all in with Jack, Two. I'm sitting on off suit King, Ten and flop a full house. Now Strongbag is balling like a little girl and Tycho turns to me saying, "Look who wears the daddy pants."

Right then it was clear to me I would have paid $20+ for this.

Imagine if the $DLC sales for Poker Night went to fund Child's Play?

When you unlock tables and decks do they just randomly change or is there a choice I'm missing?

I hope they add characters and/or dialogue. What's there is great but I'm already getting a lot of repetition. I don't think I'll have any interest in playing once I've heard everything.

You do realize you're playing POKER right? >_> I can't think of anything more repetitive.

...maybe checkers.
