I have recently discovered a Steam game that surprised me. Now, I’m not much of an online poker player (Or a poker player at all really since I sort of suck at the rules). When I saw Poker Night at the Inventory however, I had to take a closer look. It’s from Telltale Games, which I already have experience with due to some of their other well known hits. I have been a Homestarrunner fan for years, and they were tapped by the Brothers Chaps to produce the Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People. Yes. Strong Bad is a character in Poker Night at the Inventory. How can you pass that up? I haven’t seen any updates for Homestarrunner.com for quite a while, but I can get my Strong Bad fix by firing up steam and logging in.
Along with Strong Bad, there is also that wierd Rabbit from Sam and Max, a character from Penny Arcade, and Team fortress 2′s big dude Tycho. Clearly I have my favorite, but it’s interesting to see the rest of these guys showing up. Suffice to say, I was entertained. It did get me curious about poker though. I decided to do a bit of perusing and took a visit to Pokerlistings.com based on a recommendation. There is a lot more to this online poker thing than I realized.
Now, I’ve already mentioned I’m not so swift with the poker rules, but a friend told me it’s not too hard to pick up Texas Hold’em, so I headed on over to the Texas Hold’em section
