|Some how I feel out of my depth...|
Hello and Welcome to the Basement...
So what happens on a night where I just feel like taking it easy and vegging? Well I head on down to the Inventory to play some high stakes poker with the like of Brock Samson, Claptrap, Ash Williams and Sam... Of course that sounds like I'm insanse right? Well thankfully it's a video game... Poker Night 2 from Tell Tale Games.
It's basically computer poker with four opponents from four very different franchises... and yeah, this is the only setting that would make sense for them to appear in... well other than a comic book. Anyway this is the sequel to Poker Night at the Inventor... and it's straight up Texas Hold 'Em (with the option for Omaha Rules). Nothing fancy, just got to know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em... which I doubt, I try to bluff my way through every hand... I do know how to play poker, but the random factor always comes into effect.
Still the real charm of this game and its predecessor is the witty banter between the four opponents and also GLaDOS from Portal... from Brock finding this whole thing weird, to Sam wondering about Ash's hand... to Claptrap being... annoying as all hell... to GLaDOS snarky way of telling the player (in this case me) that something will bite me in my ample posterior... I want to know how does she know I have a fat ass?!
Anyway, the game is a lot of fun... and I manage to win a hand here and there... if you want to see the live stream replay, it's included below.
