I am excited by the game due to the characters but over-all it's still just poker and I will probably wait for the price drop.

Already preordered on Steam, but it's going to release in 2 days (why Valve? why?).

I might get this if I need another game for punchcards, I loved the first one. And I don't play TF2 on PC so I don't need those items.

Definently getting this one at some point. Maybe I'll finally be able to grab that brass ring called a royal flush. Been playing poker for over 30 years and I've never gotten a "legitimate" (no wild cards) royal flush.

I wish there was multiplayer. Nonetheless, this game will be fun and enjoyable. I can't wait to hear the chatter and banter. Tonight I dine in The Inventory!!

No online?? I was excited to buy this game until I heard that. What a disappointment.

Being a poker game you forgot to state that there is no online mode?! A poker game with no online wtf?! IMO That`s strange, very very strange shock

Also no Guybrush Threepwood either! He would have been perfect for this game!

Always keep in mind that this is just one person's opinion on behalf of the site. mancide's review was specifically focused on the experience of playing with the featured characters. While the lack of online may be a deal-breaker for some, it was clearly not the focus of the game or the review.

Looks like a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. I don't understand why people are whining about an online mode. It's a single player game with you interacting with the 4 other players and listening to their banter. An online mode would defeat the purpose of the game.

As the reviewer stated:
"This game should be viewed more as a social simulation rather than a poker simulation."
That says it all.

800MSP is 12 bucks for me, compared to 5 on steam... sheesh, I'll just wait for a steam sale and get it for $2.50
