Poker Night 2's cast just might get me to buy this game

by: John -
I never picked up the first Poker Night, but the video of Poker Night 2 has some awesome characters. I mean who doesn't want to play poker with Brock Samson, Ash from Evil Dead, Claptrap, Sam, and GLaDOS is the dealer.

?There's one thing though. It seems the voice of Ash ISN'T Bruce Campbell's, which is a damn shame. I'm glad they got Patrick Warburton to voice Brock and, of course, the original voices of Claptrap and GlaDOS, but man, it would've been great to hear Bruce Campbell taunt you while playing poker. 

Poker Night 2 will be out in April for the PC, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live.
