DLC Character Ideas

I was thinking, with Poker Night 2's shiny new graphics (from the screenshots it looks like it might be the most visually impressive Telltale Game yet), perhaps instead of making a Poker Night 3 years from now, there could just be added in character packs. So in other words, if Telltale were to do something like this, who would you want to see?

Pack 1:
-Lee Everett
-Elizabeth
-Garrus Vakarian
-Doc Brown
-Card Dealer: The Sniper

Villain Night at the Inventory (Replaces the PN2's characters with villainous counterparts):
-Mack Salmon (assumming Steve Purcell would let them)
-Evil Ash
-The Monarch
-Handsome Jack
-Card Dealer: Wheatley in his "core transfer with GLaDOS" incarnation

    • Adam Jensen (Deus Ex: Human Revolution)
    • Carl (Aqua Teen Hunger Force)
    • Nick (Left 4 Dead 2)
    • Dealer: Homestar Runner

    Scout: Can't imagine why.

    MC: So how's work down at ISIS?
    Archer: Eh, the usual. Eat lunch, sit in the break room discussing sex, go on top secret missions to kill people, same old same old. It's getting pretty hectic with all the terrorist plots recently.
    MC: I've had to get through a few of those.
    Archer: And how did it go?
    MC: Not well. I've still got glass shards in my-
    Archer: Never mind!

    The Magic Emperor is the Only Person who could Possibly Find these Characters Awesome for a Poker Night Game
    -Sailor Moon
    -Norman Bates (NOT from the A&E series. More based on Anthony Perkins)
    -Any character from Mystery Science Theater 3000, though I'm guessing Crow since he seems to be the most beloved
    -The Angry Video Game Nerd

    Dealer: Christopher Walken. Or a parody of him.

    Surely TT needs at least one in-house character, or it gets stupidly expensive?

    Who do you propose? Sam and Max and Strong Bad are all taken, The Bone deal got the kibosh, Guybrush's technical owner is up for debate, Wallace and Gromit belong to Aardman, and Law and Order, BTTF, Jurassic Park and the Walking Dead are all copyrighted franchises. Even if you argued for D.I. Hector or Agent Nelson Tethers, they would look a little out of place being 2D characters in a 3D environment.

    I'm just saying, it might be a bit difficult to find a good new character.

    May I remind you that Strong Bad and Tycho are 2D animated drawings in a 3D environment?

    May I also remind you that there's more to the Sam & Max and Homestar Runner franchises than the title characters? They're still on good terms with the Chapman Brothers, I believe (even though they're not currently available). They're also still on good terms with Steve Purcell and Graham Annable. Sure, BttF, Jurassic Park and Walking Dead are big franchises but they're more likely to get those characters cheaply (well, cheaper than other film companies, comic publishers and large gaming houses) because they've already proven to the franchise owners that they can write well for these titles.

    These DLC packs don't sound probable at all, but whatever.

    I’ve narrowed down my list to a top 5.

    5. Conker the Squirrel
    4. Larry Laffer
    3. Ace Ventura
    2. Elwood Blues (he can break into song when he wins)
    1. Freddy Krueger

    just Yes to the whole "DLC Characters" idea! Having master chief or the entire TF2 cast to choose from would be awesome :-D OR DOTA2!!!
  • edited April 2013
    (Wow, I rarely come here anymore, and my last visit was 6 days ago last year)

    Well, before Poker Night 2 was even being developed I had some ideas for other characters that could appear, though one of them (Sam) is already in Poker Night 2.

    TF2niverse

    Medic (as seen in the SFM video Medic at the Inventory)
    Demoman (BLU seen playing poker with the Soldier in the Mann Vs Machine trailer)
    BLU Soldier (see above reason)
    The Engineer (as Heavy previously claimed Engi brought him there)
    The Spy (he's got a hat of cards in TF2)
    The Sniper (because why not?)

    All models should be HWM! The default models have preset flexes and not nearly as many distinct ones the HWM ones do. They're higher quality, and won't have clipping issues with the Visor like Heavy did.

    I hadn't thought of having Saxton Hale in; that'd be interesting to see him banter with Brock Samson.

    Homestar Runner/SBCG4AP
    Pom Pom (somehow everyone can understand him and he was seen storming off in PN1)
    Homestar (I doubt he knows how to play, like Max)
    Bubs (I figured since he rips people off at the Concession Stand at least 99 ways, he'd be good at poker. Plus he's been seen playing card games like that in at least one Strong Bad email)
    The Cheat (mix of Pom Pom and Bubs' reasons)

    Penny Arcade

    Gabriel (since Tycho was in the last game)
    A Fruit F*cker/Juice Bot (because why not? They crack me up)

    Sam and Max
    Artie Flopshark (seeing as he was the sorta dealer/announcer guy in the TT Texas Hold'em game)

    Other games/universes
    Nick (Left 4 Dead 2) (He's a gambler/conman)
    Barney (Half-Life series) (he seems like the kinda guy who could kick back and enjoy some card games with a cold one)

    Oh, and I'd like to see the PN1 characters make a comeback, but it's all just wishful thinking.

    If you are going to do a Comic Night, it would be better to have more than just Marvel and DC characters.

    The cast for the Poker Night games are all from different series after all. So one Marvel representative, one DC Rep, one Dark Horse Rep, etc.
