title="Permanent Link to Poker Night 2 brings a new set of wisecrackers to the table">Poker Night 2







Who told you that Adult Swim cartoon characters, ditzy cyberpunk robots, and a cuddly rabbit-and-dog detective team couldn't live together in harmony? Because if today's Poker Night 2 release is anything to go by, they totally can. Well, as harmoniously as a bunch of wisecracking jerks can get on while competing ruthlessly for assorted unlockable items, anyway. Check out the new cast of players in the trailer - and we've got a list of the prizes up for grabs, too.







Brock Samson from the Venture Bros squares off against Borderlands' plucky Claptrap, while Ash Williams from Army of Darkness and the notorious Sam and Max are all plotting your defeat. Oh, and just to make your "Omaha Hold 'em" losses against these fictional smartasses all the more devastating, your dealer is the soul-crushing GLaDOS.



The prizes are based on your platform of choice, so us PC gamers will be aiming to outfit ourselves in these stylish Borderlands 2 and Team Fortress 2 items. Because look: you're nowhere near striking fear in your foes' chests unless your Mechromancer is wearing a perpetually grinning Max Mask. There are also numerous in-game unlocks to be had, such as themed poker tables and chips. I hope Max's face is slapped on everything.



For just a fiver, Telltale's Poker Night 2 is available today on Steam.

I am increasingly anxious about of the pointlessness of videos of virtual reality>. Nevertheless, you can sort of imagine what’s going on in this Oculus Rift plus Virtuix Omni (a multi-direction treadmill platform for moving about in VR) as a chap plays Team Fortress 2, below.

I am not sure if it would make me feel a bit giddy. (more…)

We already know what Team Fortress 2 looks like when teamed up with the Oculus Rift, but it turns out that was only half the story. Thanks to an enterprising individual with access to both a Rift and a prototype Virtuix Omni VR Treadmill, TF2 is now immersive for the lower half of your body, rather than just the top. Is this the future of games? All I know is that I want to try this expensive-looking kit for myself - does anyone want to buy one of my livers? (I can get by with just one, right?)



The Oculus Rift, you'll recall, is in the wild now, while the Virtuix VR Treadmill - which reads the movement of your feet and feeds that information into the game - will be heading to Kickstarter soon. Together, they look like this:

ETF2L have opened the gates to sign up for their 15th 6v6 Season! New players are encouraged to visit their new player guide for some pointers on navigating the world of competitive play. As an added bonus, there's a trailer available to help promote the new season.

Shacknews - Alice O'Connor

Telltale's original Poker Night at the Inventory rewarded good play with shiny unlockables for Valve's Team Fortress 2, and Poker Night 2 is really upping the ante. With characters from Portal, The Evil Dead, Sam & Max, Venture Bros. and more, the sequel will rifle through their possessions to offer Borderlands 2 heads and skins on all platforms, as well as other platform-specific unlocks.

As it's such a big multimedia cross-over, all sorts of oddities are up for grabs. Borderlands 2 players can pick up Brock Samson's hair, a Max mask, dealer's visor, Portal turret mask, and more, a new trailer reveals. These'll be available on PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

On PC and Mac only, you can also unlock TF2 items including Brock's knife, Chell's springy shoes, Evil Ash's skull helmet, and Handsome Jack's, er, face. The Xbox 360 gets Avatar items such as the Necronomicon and a Portal test chamber. Lastly, the PS3 scores exclusive premium themes.

Plus you can unlock stuff that, you know, actually has an effect on Poker Night 2 itself.

Poker Night 2 is coming to PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 later this month.
