Poker Night 2 unlock trailer

A new trailer has been put up by Telltale Games to show off the various unlockable items available in Poker Night 2.

As previously reported, players across all platforms will be able to get a Max mask for the Mechromancer in Borderlands 2. Additionally, players on PC/Mac will get Sam’s hat in Team Fortress 2, Xbox 360 will get a Sam costume for their avatar and PS3 will get a Sam/Claptrap and Sam/Portal crossover backgrounds (all amongst others, but these are the Sam & Max related goodies).

Watch the trailer embedded below and you’ll notice that Max is chilling in the background and Sam’s banjo makes an appearance. There are also unlockable decks, themes and felts based on Sam & Max’s 25th anniversary… plus, pause around the 1 minute mark to see Sam rocking a suit, bow-tie and top hat!

Poker Night 2 officially announced

We’ve known it all along, but Poker Night 2 has now been officially announced by Telltale. Screenshots were leaked back at the end of March, disclosing the fact that Sam would be joining Brock Samson (Venture Bros), Claptrap (Borderlands) and Ash Williams (Army of Darkness) for some rounds of poker.

Telltale’s official site offers up some more info (keep your eyes out for Max wandering around!) as well as a trailer, embedded below. Some small screenshots show that everything from the surrounding environment, table, cards and the character’s clothes can be customized. Speaking of clothes, you might notice that Sam’s suit looks slightly different. This is apparently so that it looks closer to Steve Purcell’s original drawings. What do you reckon?

As in the previous Poker Night, playing the game will get you unlocks in Team Fortress 2 (if playing through Steam on PC/Mac) and also in Borderlands 2 (across all platforms). These include a Max mask for the Mechromancer in Borderlands 2 and Sam’s hat in TF2.

Poker Night 2 will be launching “soon” for PC, Mac, XBLA and PSN. Disappointingly, I might add, without multiplayer.

Poker Night 2 rumoured, may include Sam

Clever folk have checked out the files from a Team Fortress 2 update and found some juicy details. New items with the file name prefix “PN2″ were discovered.

Of these items, one of them is Sam’s hat. Perhaps we could see Sam take the shoes of his little buddy this time round? At the moment it seems likely. If Poker Night 2 is to be a reality, hopefully this version will have online support.

The original Poker Night was announced at PAX and this year’s is not long away. Stay tuned, because an announcement could be imminent.

Wealth of new Poker Night media

As reported back at the beginning of September, Telltale are producing a poker game featuring Max, Strong Bad, Tycho and the Heavy. Telltale have upped the ante with the release of a whole host of new media for your consumption.

Firstly is Poker Night‘s tie-in with Team Fortress 2. When pre-ordering the game through Telltale or Steam, you’ll receive a poker visor for the Heavy to wear in TF2. Also, winning “special item rounds” in Poker Night will unlock further loot in Valve’s stylised shooter. These are Max’s Lugermorph handgun and Freelance Police badge, Tycho’s Enthusiast timepiece, Strong Bad’s Dangeresque shades and the Heavy’s Iron Curtain gun.

A trailer was also put out, highlighting the four different characters on show and their respective voice actors; Andrew Chaikin (Max in Culture Shock) in the case of Tycho, who has never been voiced in previous video game appearances. You can see that below in the full post.

That’s a wrap! Head over to the official Poker Night website for all the information you’d ever need and grab the game, due to be released this month, for a smooth $4.95.


Telltale’s poker game featuring Max unveiled

After teasing us with a trailer, Telltale have lifted the lid on their mysterious crossover game featuring Max, TF2’s Heavy, Strong Bad and Tycho from Penny Arcade. The game, titled Poker Night at the Inventory, sees these unlikely characters come together for a “new style of poker”.

You can pre-order at Telltale’s Store for $4.95, with a special 25% off anything else in your cart when you do so. Check out some of the key poster art and screenshots below. The game is slated for a Fall 2010 release.

Max to appear in a new Telltale crossover game

GameTrailers have had the exclusive reveal of a new title from Telltale Games in the form of this teaser trailer (embedded below in the full post). In it we can see the silhouettes of Max, Strong Bad (Homestar Runner), Tycho (Penny Arcade) and the Heavy (Team Fortress 2), the latter two appearing to be holding some cards.

It could be assumed that this is a sequel to Telltale’s very first game Telltale Texas Hold’em. The end of the trailer says we’ll find out more come September 2.
