Deadly Premonition – The Most WTF Gaming Experience Ever?

Just about everyone on staff here at Dread Central is an avid gamer. Recently we got our hands on a review copy of Ignition Entertainment’s Deadly Premonition, and for the first time in like forever we’ve been rendered pretty much speechless.

While we work up our review, we came across a video online that we had to share. It offers valuable insight as to what we’ve been dealing with … meant to have a “Twin Peaks” like vibe, this could very well be the Plan 9 From Outer Space of the video game industry!

If it’s out there and can be done badly, Deadly Premonition does it so poorly that they achieve a near flawless portrayal of how not to do something! It’s quite incredible actually. Amidst dealing with zombies who bend over backwards, bleed purple, and sound like a hybrid of what Droopy Dog would sound like if he mated with the racing turtle from those old Bugs Bunny cartoons, we came across this scene that has all but rendered us hysterically clueless.

Watch it below. Mind you there’s like twenty-something hours of gameplay to Deadly Premonition so you may not see a review for a while if only because we can’t stop laughing! In terms of its twenty-dollar price tag, it’s worth every penny if only for the absurdity of it all. Enough talk. Watch! Feast your eyes! Glut your soul! And dig on this one gamer’s reactions, which were very much like ours!

    I think I’m going to have to purchase this game just to experience it.

  • Floydian Trip

    Destructoid gave it a 10. I should go buy this before it’s gone. Then as much as I want to play it for myself would be tempted to leave it sealed to maximize my profit. Maybe I’ll just buy all the copies they have.

  • Count Zartro

    Well I have to know how this ends now!

    Deadly Premonition is great. And terrible. I rented it on a lark then had to go buy it after one day of playing. Like Creepy says, don’t judge until you play it. I for one am addicted if only to see what preposterous happenings will transpire next.

    This is awesome! The game designers had to have done this on purpose. The music alone is so damn funny I almost peed my chair!

  • DeTuinman

    The word surreal doesn’t even cut it…
    The mind is like a parachute…it only works when it is open.

  • Mr. Dark

    I have agreed to take one for the team. The game is en route and I SHALL REVIEW IT, WHATEVER THE COST.

  • Cash Bailey

    I look forward to when GiantBomb.com (aka: the single greatest video games website of all time) delivers their verdict on it.

    Like Dread Central, GiantBomb formed out of the ashes of a corrupt parent company. And now (like Dread Central) they are the absolute greatest at what they do and are independent of sucking corporate cock.

  • Cash Bailey

    Looks like shit.

    Not worth the column inches, really.

    • Uncle Creepy

      Oh dude, it IS shit, but you cannot begin to understand the experience until you’ve played it.
