    Naw man, those guys are all laughs and no brains.

    Hank would be some Texas charm to the table, and be pretty good at poker too.

    Yeah but they already did Texas hold em in this game.

    Carl would be great, but I feel like either Shake or Meatwad has to be there with him giving her terrible advice to really get him angry.

    Haha true. Maybe more Shake than Meatwad. Hereeeaaaly gets on Carls nerves.

    How about Tsunade from Naruto? She has her funny moments and is a gambler.

    I am waiting for TWD zombie, Poopsmith, Chell and Einstein (the dog) Poker Night
    Just think of the dialogue...

    This would probably be a good way for the player to learn how to distinguish between different types of crickets chirping at the same time.

    Tsunade would always loose that makes it too easy

    I just got some ideas for Scott Pilgrim (were he a player).

    Bounty Item: Ramona's old Subspace Bag (it exploded at the end of volume 6, Ramona got a new one)

    Unlocks: Power of Love for a Half-Zatoichi reskin, Ramona's bag to replace Scout's exercise bag in TF2. Borderlands 2 unlock could be

    Inventory Reskin: Reskinned to look like the Chaos Theater, Scott turns into Nega-Scott. First player eliminated gets thrown into Subspace, courtesy of Ramona.

    Playstyle: Scott's aware that he's in a video game (similar to how there's lots of fourth wall breaking in Scott Pilgrim) that's also taking place in a cross-dimensional mutliverse, plus he's very headstrong already, so he plays recklessly and generally just bullies the other players with huge bets and re-raises (because he figures it won't matter if he loses, much to the chagrin of his friends).

    Friends (people like Max or Moxxi to hang around): Ramona and Wallace, mostly. Stephen or Kim could also be around, but if it was limited to one extra guest per player, Ramona and/or Wallace are the obvious choice.

    Let's see what I can offer here...

    Manny Calavera (Grim Fandango)- A classicly iconic character of the point-n-click era with sthe potential for some strong dialogue potential.
    TF2 Unlock: Department of Death Scythe - Demoman
    Cameo: Domino Hurley

    HK-47 (KotoR)- A solidly constructed, hilarious character that would open up a lot of interesting dialogue options through the game. Aggressive and hostile to other players.
    TF2 Unlock: Droid Assassin Rifle - Sniper
    Cameo: Ebon Hawk

    Professor Layton (Professor Layton)- Gentlemen. Scholar. Here to play poker. Layton is one of those interesting, dialogue heavy characters that would adapt great for a game like this.
    TF2 Unlock: Gentleman's Tophat - Spy

    Taronga Leela (Futurama)- One of the stronger characters in the animated scene right now, Leela is very iconic, likable, and has a lot of potential for dialogue between other characters.
    TF2 Unlock: Hero's Hairpiece - Pyro
    Cameo: Zapp Brannigan


    And finally.... the host of tonight's proceedings....
    The Dealer
    Dr. 'Eggman' Robotnik (Sonic the Hedgehog)- The doctor is in. Robotnik is one of those super iconic video game characters that's gotten to the point where it wouldn't be odd for him to appear without his protagonist, and he's not entirely evil enough for him to not be welcome at the inventory. His gadgets and flying cart allow him to scoot in and out of the scene smoothly.
    TF2 Unlock: Maniac's Moustache - Medic (Adds a Robotnik Nose + Moustache)

    One of my Poker Night fanarts on dA has gotten a bunch of comments asking me about the next Homestar Runner cameo, and I feel bad that I can't answer anyone beyond "this is what I heard Matt Chapman was working on, and this is what he said on his Twitter". I'm not employed with either Telltale or the Chapman Bros., so unless it's posted on a social network site, I'm not really sure. I have zero insider info.

    I did say though who I felt would be the best or my favorite characters to cameo, though.
  • edited May 2013
    My picks would be
    One of the bots from mst3k
    The Sniper (I can already hear him getting a bad card during a showdown. "Ah, Piss")
    Roman Bellic
    Gary Smith (from Bully)
    and The Joker as the dealer.

    Oh I am TOTALLY in favor of Tom Servo, there! Good suggestion!

    I am dying to see Peacock from Skullgirls in it. She's such a whacky character she would fit in as a suitable replacement for max, or even as a game host!

    I'd also love to see...
    Deadpool
    Bender or Morbo
    Sybil Pandemik
    The Sniper
    Professor Layton (Then again that's a Japanese game series so that's extremely impossible. :< )

    If we're getting ANY anime character, which wouldn't really fit, I think the best choice is Usopp from One Piece.

    *Usopp is known for being a notorious bluffer and a coward. Looks like his AI is set.
    *Usopp has obvious tells in the series, including shaking his legs and stuttering.
    *Usopp is considered the comedic relief, and can act as a straight man and a funny man.
    *Usopp has several alternate costumes, including SOGEKING~!
    *One Piece has reason to be promoted, being finally back on American television.
    *One Piece is very popular with the demographic that Poker Night aims towards.
    *Team Fortress 2 has the Sniper. I could think of hundreds of items that go with him.
    *Usopp has dials, slingshots, treasure, goggles, and other possible bounty unlocks.

    He's the only anime character I could ever imagine being in Poker Night.

    "I have eight THOUSAND ACES in my my hand! Fold now if you don't want to lose every chip on the table! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!"

    "USOOOOOOOOOPP fold."

    Imagine him telling tall tales about his poker victories. Or maybe pretending like he actually runs The Inventory to try to get an upper hand. God, Telltale. Make this happen now!

    Guybrush Threepwood is almost a MUST for the next Poker Night game as the Telltale representative. That might be interesting.

    As far as the other characters:

    Gromit has got to be the dealer. That would make things very interesting, because in real poker, the dealer's supposed to be the strong, silent type.

    Duke Nukem would be an interesting poker opponent.

    Maybe throw in Space Ghost as the obligatory TV character, John McClane as the obligatory film character, and then maybe have more than just those. Maybe it'd be something where every game is different because you have up to 64 opponents and the 4 opponents you get at any point are randomized. That might cut down on repeated dialogue just a tad.

    Oh good, I'm not the only one who feels Sterling Archer would be ridiculously perfect for this game.

    If not him, Pam Poovey!

    Yeah, Archer is a no brainer.

    But please not Pam. I've gotten kinda sick of her over-presence since she became a field agent. Give me Kreiger or Cyril instead!

    In Poker Night 3 I would like to see a female player, and also multiplayer support.
  • edited June 2013
    It would be cool if the Narrator from Sam and Max The Devil's Playhouse is the host and the dealer for Poker night 3 . Don't get me wrong i like Winslow but the Narrator would be a perfect host for the next game like for example the player ( AKA us ) and the new players are waiting for Winslow but the Narrator shows up and and tells everybody that Winslow is busy and Glados is occupied with her experiments so the Owner offered the Narrator the job and he gladly took it and i can imagine him screwing around with us by teleporting here and there .
