No good poker, some good laughs

Poker night at the inventory  is a great concept, and you can get it for cheap. And I wont lie, I love Telltale as much as anyone.
 
But the AI will bet randomly no matter what cards they have. Its like playing a kindergarten. They will make huge raises, only to fold the same hand seconds later. There is no strategy, it becomes a very slow game of pure luck.
But you didn't come here for the poker, right? Well, the dialogue, while occasionally funny, gets repetitive pretty fast.
I also met a few game breaking bugs through my play through.
