Deadly Premonition 2 apparently not coming to PC

The biggest gaming surprise of 2019 has surely been the announcement of Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise, a sequel to one of the most beloved and reviled and wonky and bestest best games. I adore Deadly Premonition. I can hardly believe publishers are funding a sequel. The announcement came last week during a Nintendo Direct presentation and only a mentioned a release on…

RICO kicks open the door and slides into stores

RICO is not a game that beats around the bush. It's a roguelike-ish shooter built for co-op that sells that 80s hollywood buddy cop fantasy of punting open doors and clearing out waves of expendable mooks as you work your way up to whatever generic drug kingpin is behind it all. Out now and developed by Ground Shatter, I've played a few rounds of the…

Wipeout meets Splatoon in weird sci-fi racer Trailblazers

Never been much for motorsports in general, but you stick a super-charged engine and some manner of swish sci-fi gimmickry on a racing car, and I'm in. As such, it's no great surprise that I'm eager to get my grubby mitts on Trailblazers from Guildford based outfit Supergonk, a unique team-based hovercar racer that brings a few clever ideas to the table, even if they…

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope coming to PC

Fans of pumpkins and buying affection with said pumpkins will be happy. Harvest Moon: Light of Hope [official site], the next entry in the farming and flirting series, has been announced and it’s coming to PC as well as the Nintenbox and Play-Station. It wants us all to be friends. We haven’t been shown any images yet, because developers Natsume don’t feel like it. But…

Railing Rats: Ratz Instagib Released

If special abilities in Quake make some gristly knot deep in your guts writhe and write Internet comments, you might be more interested in Ratz Instagib [official site]. And if your hand is stuck twisted into an MX518-clutching claw, as you'd have me believe, you'll likely recognise both parts of that name. Ratz, from ye olde Rats maps which have teeny players scurrying around colossal…

Old School: Isometric Platformer Lumo Out Now

Lumo [official site] is an isometric platformer throwback dealio that aims to provide a "modern take" on a long-forgotten genre. Made by ex-Ruffian fellow Gareth Noyce, it's been in the works for a couple of years now, but has been released into the real live world today. I had a bash of the demo at Rezzed earlier this year and liked it, but first have…

Feature: Inside The Black Lodge

Deadly Premonition review

Deadly Premonition is fascinating, broken, bizarre, enormous, boring, brilliant and absolutely unsuitable to play on my PC (Durante's fix helps though). I’ve laboured through more crashes than SID-H3, as well as wrestling with awkward mouse and keyboard controls. Eventually I resorted to playing in a window because that seemed to cause fewer collisions with the desktop. I wouldn’t have persevered for a lesser game, even…

Late Access: Deadly Premonition’s Troubled PC Release

Today in Games We Were Convinced Would Never Come To PC, it's lovably clunky survival horror cult classic Deadly Premonition. Access Games' oddball, divisive Twin Peaks semi-homage has a dedicated, even fervent following on console, but it was a complete surprise when it showed up on Greenlight one day. Now it has completed its walk with fire, and is available on Steam right now. Sadly,…

You Don’t Know Zach: Deadly Premonition

The weird, wooden and wonderful world of Deadly Premonition is just around the next curve in the road. The bizarre survival horror game may be on Steam as early as November 1st. If you haven't played the game in its previous console incarnations, I'd suggest that you avoid reading or watching too much about it. There are reasons that people, myself included, hold the game…

Damn Fine: Deadly Premonition Coming To PC

I don't play many console games at the moment. My 360 has curled up in a corner, snoring like a pig in a hurricane, and the PS3 hobbled back from the retirement home to entertain me The Last of Us and its brilliant reinterpretation of the great Westward journey. State of Decay has a certain allure but I'll wait for the PC version. Over drinks…
