Huh, surprised about the QTE's.

I seem to recall Swery hosting a fucking game developer hoe down over the combat in Deadly Premonition. He wanted none of that shit, so the director's cut made every super super easy out of personal spite over the loss of the great Access Games riot of 2010.

I can't imagine making something episodic with little promotion is going to help matters. Unless they expect people to pick up the early episodes eventually and do the whole word of mouth thing.

Is it just me, or was Yahtzee surprisingly semi-gentle in this review? He had the negative points, but he didn't exactly bash the game to tiny little pieces either.

This delectable dissertation did deconstruct and dismember this detritus decisively. Disinterest declared directly!

It's true, but excluding the QTEs & the repeated plot we are left with: yea it's all right, I guess, if you like that sort of thing...
Btw: the QTEs are there because it's supposed to be played with the Kinect, also see the denounced launch title Ryse: Son Of Rome.

CAPTCHA: "go berserk" I'm not going to do that, I'm not part of SWERY's silliness.

I actually found the QTEs hilarious and quite fun on the Kinect just because it felt like you were orchestrating some incredibly elaborate and absurd action sequence but I imagine they were quite dull on the controller. I honestly recommend playing this game with the Kinect over playing it with a controller especially when it comes to a few of the side quests and the aforementioned action sequences.

While I did find the game really enjoyable I do agree that the second episode could have been better - especially the midpoint.

You have seen Rhymedown, right? Yahtzee's this generation's master poet(I seriously can't think of anyone besides Seuss)

Always dutifully denouncing detrimental and decrepit design that disregards depth for disconnected dreariness... dishwasher.

Damn, that took me like 15 minutes, I am defiantly no natural at word play.

Yeah, he seems to have mellowed a bit.

(As an aside, I don't see anything that weird about hanging out with a sexy catwoman, in that I'm FB friends with at least one)

So many D-words in that opening and closing. Just Bravo, Yahtzee! You are truly one of the most warped wordsmiths on the World Wide Web working wacky wonders with the waddling wank you wish you can wash off. Wow, even I don't know how I did that!

The game was announced at E3 so I am not sure where he got the idea that they never marketed the game.

"And you share an apartment with an insane scantily clad woman who thinks she's a cat. Now, I'm lost."

Weird way to pronounce "intrigued", but whatever.

Anyway, as much of a cult following as Deadly Premonition has for being so weird and bad, I personally just found it kinda meh with the weirdness being more of an occasional caffeine shot than a driving force, so that this is a bit lackluster doesn't come as a huge surprise. Still... I might check it out if for no other reason than morbid curiosity. Plus, I'm apparently the only person in the world who has no real beef with QTEs.

Fuck yeah, wordplay review. I missed those. Will also be stealing the "metabolizes like a fucking nuclear submarine" bit, if you don't mind.
