The lights are on
Telltale has been teasing a project that features both Claptrap and GLaDOS for the past couple of days, and we now know what that project is. The two lovable-yet-psychotic robots will be trading barbs over a friendly game of poker.
Poker Night 2 allows players to gamble against four new characters from video games, comics and movies: Borderlands' Claptrap, The Venture Bros.' Brock Samson, Sam from Sam & Max, and Ash Williams from Army of Darkness. GLaDOS will step in as dealer.
Telltale says that players can compete in both no-limit Texas Hold 'Em and Omaha, and can win virtual items for other games, such as skins and heads in Borderlands 2, and accessories in Team Fortress 2 (PC version only). You'll also be able to unlock Avatar items on Xbox 360, and UI themes on PlayStation 3. Here's the official teaser trailer:
Poker Night 2 will be available on XBLA, PSN, and PC in late April, with more systems to be announced at a later time.

Weird, yet oddly satisfying. I like it.
Now I just want to see Brock Sampson playing the ending of Walking Dead and shedding his manly tears.
Awesome trailer, hopefully the game will be as funny.
Imagine trying to win chips off of Brock Samson.
"Go ahead.....take it from me."
I thought the first game couldn't create a bigger combination of awesome. I WAS WRONG.
I'm all in!
That's pretty sweet that it's coming to other platforms but I'm getting it on PC just so I can get those TF2 items. ^_^
Dude! Poker and video games? my two favorite things!
This is pretty neat. Odd, but interesting.
This actually looks amazing!
