The original Deadly Premonition is a masterpiece of bizarre storytelling and overall surrealistic feels. If you don't like it you don't like good things....or you just don't get it. Fair enough. Anyhoo. Nintendo just announced the sequel. If it turns out to be exclusive to Switch I will buy a Switch, play the game 7 times from beginning to end and back again then sell the Switch, keep the game in a sacred place and never buy another Nintendo product. That's all. Have a nice day, sweethearts. <3

Francis and his particular coffee approves.

I loved the first game, though I have my doubts whether they can make a sequel just as good. In many ways the first game had charm that stood above the superficial aspects like poor graphics and game mechanics. I recall this game being compared to a Dream cast game when it was released last gen. Things like this are kind of a fluke, so, kind of have my doubts about this news, but I would love to at least replay original.

@lamprey263: Yeah unfortunately that’s kind of what my first thought was as well in regards to how a sequel might turn out. I never played the first game but have heard a lot about it and it has definitely turned into a cult classic. It’s one thing to have an accidental game like that but when you try to recreate something like that purposefully it can be pretty difficult. Hopefully it turns out how fans are hoping it will though.

There are simply so many better looking games coming out on the Switch I'd much rather buy. I didn't even bat an eye at this one.

Looks like a solid movie game if that's what you're into, and surely that might just be your niche since you are a PS4 gamer.

Aww I thought you didn't even know me yet here you are still being salty over a thread from a month ago using your same false-act of not knowing someone. I guess I affected you more than I could have imagined. :P Keep it salty, cowboy.

It will be bad since Sweary is aware of the memes of the game so he will try too hard to replicate DP1.

I'm not salty at all, because I truly hope this movie game comes out on PSVR too, because I know how much you love wearing goggles and I want you to enjoy it on your platform of choice. ;)

Nothing is saltier than retorting over an old thread and pretending to not know someone when the irony lies that you are using the same lines directly correlating to that last interaction.

And lookie here! I broke your pattern. I was expecting "Sorry, do I know you?" as your response. I guess it grinds you because you're still salty.

@jaydan: Nice essay. My suggestion: called a loved one. Speak with someone you actually like. It'll raise your vibrations.

And of course, have a nice day. I mean it. :)

If that's what you call an essay, then you might have been a flunky in school. There is no bragging right in you being a drop-out.

(I'm just having fun too) Don't cling onto the past, that's one of the number one reasons why relationships can go bad. I'm sorry that thread from over a month ago is still bothering you, but take my advice: get over it. You will see color in a vibrant way again. You will get a chance to smell the flowers again, and you will be happy.

Holding grudges is not healthy, okay?

@lamprey263: You make valid points. The director is a big weirdo though (in the best kind of way); i.e. he can't help but make cult classics. It could be that the perfect storm of oddness was not a fluke, and lightning will strike twice. Guess we'll just have to wait and find out. Either way day one for me.

@jaydan: Really dude. Not bothered. You're okay in my book. Just jabbing you a bit.

Care to discuss the topic of the thread?

Lol I'm not bothered, just clowning around.

I already did give you my serious response, though: there are simply way too many games coming out on the Switch for me to be bothered by this one. Right now I am also playing Astral Chain and having a blast with that game.

@jaydan: Fair enough. Despite the cheekiness of my wording in the OP I do get it if Deadly Premonition isn't your cup o' tea. Lol, the sh_t is freaking bizarre. I just love that kinda thing, being a fair bit freaky myself.

BTW Astral Chain looks awesome.

@subspecies: I understand the value in cult products, and I think there's something we all are a fan of that are more niche, whether it's in games, movies, etc.

For example, I love The Big Lebowski, and that's considered a cult movie. In games, a big developer: Suda51.

From what I understand with Deadly Premonition is its divisiveness among the fanbase. Some people don't like it where many others LOVE it. I'm pretty sure the sequel will be multiplat. I would not see Nintendo characteristically making an exclusive with this, considering it does not really have that Nintendo feel to it.

This is as big as Half Life 3 being announced.

Never played the original, but it has quite a reputation.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this one

Deadly Premonition was hands-down my favourite game on the Xbox 360. I'm going to buy the sequel, but I'm worried that it's going to be either too competent, or deliberately incompetent.

Quite the adroit observation. Either might be the case, you're right. Although I'm hopeful they can find the same sense of magic this time around, too.

Dunno. But from what I hear the port has issues. Apparently the sound cuts out a lot. Missing dialogue voices, music, etc.

Sounds right for a Deadly Premonition port.

It's probably the strangest announcement at the direct. Never thought I'd see a deadly premonition sequel.
