Poker Night 2 Official Announcement and Trailer

IGN has a trailer and official announcement of Poker Night 2 by Telltale Games. As the leaked screenshot showed, Brock is indeed a character in the game and is voiced by Patrick Warburton to boot. The game will be out this month some time on PSN (Playstation 3), XBLA (XBox 360) and PC (probably Steam). No price point yet, but the original game launched at $5 so I would expect this one to be around the same price. Check out the trailer below:

This is not an April Fool's joke, by the way. The joke is that there isn't one this year!

Brock Samson Will Probably Be In Poker Night At The Inventory 2

For those of you into video games, Polygon is reporting on a leaked screenshot that is most likely the sequel to Telltale Games' poker game from 2010, Poker Night At The Inventory, a game that featured four characters from the world of video games. Telltale recently launched a teaser site for the game though without naming the game. The current keys in the bowl confirm what is seen in screenshot, however, with Brock's knife being the relevant bit of Venture Bros. info. Brock is of course joined by Claptrap from the Borderlands video games, Ash from the Evil Dead series and Sam from Telltale's Sam & Max games. So for those of you pining for a Venture Bros. video game, this isn't quite that, but it's getting there.

Venture Bros. On Netflix Streaming Starting March 30th

It's not quite season 5, but for those of you who are Netflix subscribers you have yet another way to watch Venture Bros. as it (along with various other Adult Swim and Cartoon Network series, you may remember the original announcement back in January) will appear on your Netflix-enabled devices for streaming starting March 30th. Right now it looks like only season one is on the site, but perhaps the others will follow. You can of course always rent the show on DVD the old fashioned way, but who has time for that?

Adult Swim (Finally) Releases Season Five Sizzle Reel

For those of you who attended or watched the various shakycams of the Venture Bros. panel during the previous New York Comic Con you may remember a certain sizzle reel. A nice, steady version of that was never released... until now! In anticipation of season five being around two months away Adult Swim released it as a teaser. There's also a YouTube version if that's your thing. Beyond the video quality there's no difference between this and the NYCC one, but it's nice to get a little refresher for what Jackson and Doc have in store for us.

First Round of BifBangPow 3 3/4" Figures In Stock

For those of you waiting on the release of the first non-Brock batch of the Venture Bros. 3 3/4" figures from BifBangPow! you'll be pleased to know that they are finally here! Dr. Mrs. The Monarch, Dean and Hank are all available for purchase and immediate delivery instead of just pre-order. They can be yours for a paltry $9.99 each (plus shipping and all that). Future figures in the line after this include Dr. Venture, Phantom Limb and The Monarch. No word on a Venture Compound playset just yet.

Venture Fortress: Suit Up

Those of you who frequent the site you may have noticed my affinity for Team Fortress 2, particularly when Adult Swim meets TF2. Well, with the advent of those TF2 items along with Source Filmmaker (which allows fans to make high quality movies using TF2 assets) it was only a matter of time before somebody did something awesome. I present to you the famous scene from "Hate Floats", lovingly crafted by JackMuu:

A Look Back At "The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay"

As I previously mentioned, the pilot episode "The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay", first aired ten years ago yesterday. In celebration of this ten year milestone for the series I've written an article looking back on the pilot and how it differs from the series, how it set up some things and what it allows us to speculate about the show based on all the episodes we have now. If you have the season one DVD I also recommend popping it in and watching the episode before (or after) you read the article, as it's good to have it fresh in your mind. There's some pretty interesting stuff in there, and the commentary track also provides a good amount of insight.

"The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay" Turns 10 Today

For those of you who have been with Venture Bros. since the ultra-beginning you may remember the pilot episode, "The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay" airing way back on a chilly (I assume) February night back in 2003. Of course that night was February 15th, which makes the pilot episode (and by extension, the series) ten years old today. After season one was greenlit there was still over a year before the first canonical episode aired (sound familiar?) but the pilot is of course where it all began. Ten years is a pretty damned long time, and even though the wait between new seasons can sometimes boarder on excruciating it's important to be thankful for something that has had so much staying power. From Adult Swim for nurturing it to Jackson and Doc and the rest of the crew for toiling over it for a large portion of their lives, to you for watching it, buying DVDs and (hopefully) telling your friends. Venture Bros. couldn't have lasted this long without everything going so very right, and that's been a pretty cool thing to see these last ten years.

New BifBangPow! Stuff On Display At New York Toy Fair

Astute reader 'The Tick' has kindly pointed out this large gallery of BifBangPow! items currently on display at NY Toy Fair 2013. This includes many of the smaller action figures such as The Monarch, Phantom Limb, Hank, Dean and so on, as well as the Mego-styled figures such as Jefferson Twilight, Sgt. Hatred (!!!), Pete White and more. Extra special is a brand new HELPeR figure (classic form, not walking eye) and some Brock-themed drinkware including a pint glass and color changing mug. Check out the full gallery from Figures.com or a smaller one taken by Action Figure Insider.

The Journal of Venture Studies

A while back I posted a poll asking what sorts of things you guys would like to see from the site during the (long) offseason and the clear winner was articles about the show. Of course I failed to deliver on this (though I did make an attempt or two) so for those of you waiting for all kinds of awesome Venture Bros. analysis, I point you towards The Journal of Venture Studies:

Volume I of JoVS -- now available online -- examines a diverse range of topics, including an exegesis on the theme of "failure" in the series, and the flavor of the Red Mocho Kooler.

Also for those of you itching to write some sort of Venture-related essay or whatever else, they are currently accepting submissions for the next volume, which is due out in April (proposals are due by March 14th):

The Journal of Venture Studies currently has an open call for submissions to Volume II of JoVS -- to be released in April 2013 in collaboration with the good people of Adult Swim.

Many thanks to Katie for pointing this out to me.

Thanks for linking to my article, guys! Love the site. Some other funny stuff they went over that I didn't think there was room in article for: • Doc and Jackson have NEVER tried any of the drinks Doc Venture mixes. Hammer says he's "Obsessed with [Rusty] being a bad scientist, and therefore a bad mixologist." Jackson says some of the drinks wouldn't work on a chemical level. •Jackson thinks Rusty might have been laid a couple dozen times. Doc thinks "15, tops." They agree that he's written every single time down. • They have no immediate plans for the Hank Bucks, which are photocopied moneky with Hank on the front you receive with your t-shirt orders. They stressed that Shirt Club shirts will never be reprinted. They joked with the audience about a Golden Hank Buck, which will get you into the Astrobase, but they also said the Golden Hank Buck is "The mother of all lies," so take that with a grain of salt.
