I made myself a nice cup of coffee. Not too black and with just a little bit of
milk. Oh but not too much milk, don't want to ruin a good cup of coffee now do
we? As I took my first sip of that delightful cup of joe I witnessed something
the coffee. Amazing!
with Deadly Premonition starts around a year after it was originally released.
After hearing so much about this game and how people either hated or loved it,
the quirky characters, and that it's a "cult hit" I finally decided to check it
out for myself. I didn't have an Xbox 360 to rent it and play it on so I
searched YouTube to find a walkthrough of it. Obviously I wasn't going to go
out and buy a 360 just to play this game and I wasn't sure if I would even
watch more than one video of this game online.
searching YouTube for a while trying to find a good video to start out on I
came across the first episode of supergreatfriend's LP of the game.
could not get enough of this LP. I suddenly didn't have time to actually play
games anymore because I had to know what was going to happen next in the story.
By the time I finished watching the entire LP I was in love with the game, the
story, the characters and just how different it was from any other game I had
seen before. It's kind of weird to say, but during that time my earlier
statement was no longer valid. As I was itching to buy an Xbox 360 just so I
could play Deadly Premonition.
Well the 360
never came which was probably best for this college student with a tight
budget. I still had hopes of buying a 360 someday, and when that day eventually
came I would pick the game up and have fun actually playing it. That day came
much sooner than I expected, with the announcement of the director's cut to the
PS3. I can't really describe how excited I was the day I heard this news, but
it went something like this.
My plan was
to go out and buy this the day it released, but irony is a funny thing. I
couldn't find the game to save my life. My local game store didn't have it, and
the two GameStops and the BestBuy in the next town didn't have it either.
Finally after about a week I walked into my local store to find one copy of the
game sitting on the shelves. I instantly nabbed it and skipped happily all the
I've been playing the game whenever I can and I'm a little over five hours into it. Here's my thoughts on it so far:
What's been nice:
What's not so nice:
having a great time playing Deadly Premonition. I'm going to be taking my time with this one. Even though I know what's going to happen in the end I'm just excited that I'm actually playing and experiencing this wonderful game. After having a thirst to play
this for the past two years the coffee is still just as good as I remember it.
