All Articles: Poker Night 2

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Poker Night 2, Katamari Damacy, more added to PS Store


The over-the-top cliches, pulsing neon, and sheer lunacy that make up Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon are now available on the PlayStation Store. Ubisoft’s masterpiece is joined by Telltale’s poker room crossover, Poker Night 2; Keiji Inafune’s first post-Capcom game, Soul Sacrifice; and one of the greatest PS2 Classics of all time, Katamari Damacy.

A pair of special editions are also available on the PlayStation Store this week including “The Director’s Cut” of the divisive Deadly Premonition and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, the PS3-exclusive special edition of Ninja Gaiden II.

Finally this week, the PlayStation Store will see the release of Zombie Tycoon II: Brainhov’s Revenge, a PS3/Vita Cross-Buy title and the final “Spring Fever” game, and T.A.C. Heroes, a PSP shooter.

More details on all of these games can be found after the break and a rundown of this week’s new game add-ons is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

XBLA Today: Poker Night 2

Telltale’s PC-exclusive Poker Night at the Inventory was a strange little game that brought together Max (of Sam and Max), Tycho (of Penny Arcade), Strong Bad, and The Heavy (from Team Fortress 2) for a round of poker and a side order of hijinks. So why not do it again?

Poker Night 2 is available to download from the Xbox Live Arcade today for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and its cast of characters is bother odder and more normal at the same time. This time, Telltale has hired GLaDOS as The Inventory’s new dealer as Max’s partner Sam, Claptrap (the Borderlands series), Brock Samson (The Venture Bros.), and… I almost can’t believe it… Ash (The Evil Dead trilogy) ante up for a second round of Texas Hold ‘Em (or Omaha Hold ‘Em).

The chips are down and the ante is up in this sentence already bursting with poker clichés! Take the fifth seat in Poker Night 2, at a table featuring Claptrap (Borderlands 2), Brock Samson (The Venture Bros.), Ash (Army of Darkness) and Sam (Sam and Max series). So play to win because winning unlocks unique skins and heads to use in Borderlands 2 and exclusive avatar items! Your dealer is GLaDOS (Portal series), but at no point will you be considered as a candidate for a visit to Aperture Science’s Enrichment Center. Unless you lose.

Poker Night 2 will also make its way to Steam and the PSN next week.
