Deadly Premonition coming to PC

You may think your old pal Alice a terrible cynic, which truly hurts but does at least mean that when I say something's amazing, you should trust my supposed rare excitement. Guys: the janky, odd, and endlessly wonderful Twin Peaks 'em up Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut is coming to PC. Go bananas!

You may think your old pal Alice a terrible cynic, which truly hurts but does at least mean that when I say something's amazing, you should trust my supposedly rare excitement.

Deadly Premonition is an open-world murder mystery which brings an oddball FBI agent to a small Pacific Northwest town to investigate a brutal murder. Oh, but it's all sorts of weird, filled with unusual characters and questionable facial expressions and the strangest sandwich and more references to Twin Peaks than you can shake a log at.

As well as survival horror sections where Agent York Morgan slips into a nightmare world, it has you running around town questioning locals and completing side-missions for them. One minute you're fishing, the next racing to drive a Log Lady-type character and her talking pot home, then you're rearranging the grocery store's stockroom in a Sokoban-esque part-time job.

Like the PS3 edition, which arrived in April three years after the game's Xbox 360 release, it has enhanced graphics, reworked controls, a few extra missions, and a few bits of DLC to buy--suits mostly. New to PC are Steam achievements and trading cards, plus a "bonus" piece of DLC.

Go, run, vote for it on Steam Greenlight. Publisher Rising Star Games is expecting to launch the PC port around Halloween.

        Beard and all? I'm quite pleased by the ability to be perfectly clean-shaven but have flies buzzing around my dirty, dirty self.

        There are two! One with Jeff and Vinny, and one with Brad and Ryan. I watched the one with Vinny playing but they're both incredibly hilarious.

      If Alice is a terrible cynic, then what does that make me?

      Seriously, though, I would like to fly to London to meet Alice. And I want to try Deadly Premonition on PC, so I can experience the crazy jankiness, hopefully with a faster framerate and mouse controls.

      The best mod will be the one that removes all combat.

        Look, it's awfully wonky, but still one of the most delightful times I've had playing a single-player game. It has genuinely good and interesting things going on.

        It's not "so bad it's good" it's "so bad in places but so good in others."

          I think we'll have to agree to disagree on this one, to me DP is barely a step above The Room.

          Deadly Premonition is one of those games that sticks with you: you'll want to keep bringing it up long after you've finished it. Can you think of any other games like that? No, don't answer now. Take some time and think about it.

      I have always wanted to play this, but I've been to lazy to do anything about it. Problem solved!

      I think the best option for this game is to watch a good LP of it. Two Best Friends Play is doing this one and it's hilarious.

      OH MY GOD

      I might have to buy this just because. The game is terrible but in the more awesome way possible.
