Damn good coffee.
This is a live, uncut playthrough of Deadly Premonition for the Dreamc– I mean, XBOX 360!
I don’t want to be that guy but…GiantBomb already did an Endurance Run of this game.
Besides, this is a spoony run, not an endurance run. ~.~
Giant Bomb is wrapping up 1 endurance run (Brad And Ryan’s), with another already being completely finished (Jeff and Vinny’s). I have thus far sat through about 40 hours of other people playing Deadly Premonition. Am I looking forward to seeing Spoony play Zach? Zach says yes. Though I’d prefer a different game, beggers can’t be choosers. A DP let’s play is better then no let’s play at all
Also: Spoony! If you read your comments, DO SIDEQUESTS 99% of the awesome cheese this game offers requires comes from SIDEQUESTS! Some have among the best loot you will ever find in a video game, others contain goofy crap, the only sucky ones are the ones that reward you with cards. The main storyline kind of peaks mid-way through, but the SIDEQUESTS keep giving you value.
Just got this game from Gamefly along with Saw. Maybe now i wont have to play it (^u^)
It’s kinda funny how Giant Bomb’s ER just ended and Spoony’s just started. I have to watch this, because I need to see Spoony’s reaction to all the weird shit in this game, as well as the less-than-stellar gameplay mechanics.
That game you mention in the beginning was more than likely “The Ring: Terror’s Realm”. I remember Armake21 did a review on that game. You remember Armake21, right Spoony?
Your GS is exactly the same as mine.
Hey Spoony, go to youtube and look up “Clannad – Sunohara Horror! “. Watch it and tell me if the sound they make on the keyboard sounds familiar after playing this game.
…Now watching this LP is going to be awkward, because I’ll be thinking of Clannad the whole time.
The opening credits remind me of horror films from the late 70′s and 80′s
You know, I just can’t take the Limbo Zombies seriously. Or even the Axe Crazy giant Jawas.
what is it with this game all the sudden being all over the place? BRING IT ON SPOONY!
I am shocked, SHOCKED that when presented with a fence in game you did not attempt to shoot it.
“IT’S NO USE! THE BULLETS ARE JUST GOING THROUGH THE HOLES!”
OH MY GOD! IT’S THE DARKKNIGHT JOKER AND MELVIN BROTHER OF THE JOKER OUT FOR REVENGE!
That was awesome! Great to see another LP from Spoony; definitely looking forward to more.
The game itself actually looks kinda cool… absolutely ridiculous, but in a kind of stylish way. I’d like to see a vlog-style review once the actual gameplay is over.
A new Let’s Play? Well, I’m still holding out hope for a Stetchkov Syndicate LP, but a crappy/awesome survival horror game will work for now.
But Noah, the palm tree in front of my house is 2D and has little paper scorpion sprites spawning in it every so often… That’s not normal?
Hehe… that’s not all ladybugs can do…
WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO THE LADYBUGS YOU SICK BASTARD!!!
It doesn’t help that my wife’s given nickname is “Ladybug” does it =? But just that one… no others.And what I do pales in comparison to the Spooning with Spoony series. I’m still waiting for the Saw rip-off episode where everybody gets back at him =p. Or maybe it’s just Joe…
I’m waiting to see Spooning with Spoony: Pokemon Edition! Complete with the Police at the end
Man, Spoony, how could you?!
This was one of the games I wanted to buy when I got a 360 and now I can’t because you’re gonna spoil the story and I’m gonna watch it and enjoy it!
I HATE YOU SO MUCH. DAMN YOU, SPOONYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!
(Note: I don’t really hate you.)
Awesome! New Let’s Play!
Glad to see that you’re playing DP. One thing to note, the game has lots of side missions that are tied to which chapter you’re in. Story missions will repeat everyday, so it’s worthwhile to explore and try as many side missions as possible. They’ll give you cool stuff, and some interesting side-story/character elements. If you ever need to wait for a mission just smoke cigarettes to speed up time. Good luck, and I look forward to seeing much more.
I laughed harder than I should have at the Heavy Rain jokes.
Meh. Giantbomb guys have been doing an LP (or “Endurance Run”) of this for quite a while now.
The guy talking to himself and acting generally insane freaked me out more than the Joker zombies
Am I the only one who thought the tree looks like the one from Ferngully?
Attack of the Annoying Limbo Zombies. Coming soon to a theater near you…. :D
What, no quick time event to say “when” for your milk?
This game just drags on and on…
I’d never heard of this game before, then suddenly Unkippable and Spoony do a piece on it! Not that I’m complaining.
I don’t understand why people bother to point out that others have already done a “Let’s Play” in a negative way. Isn’t kinda obvious that more than one person is going to play/do a “Let’s Play” of the same game and isn’t a good thing to get different personalities playing these to get different points of view of it? Seriously, just baffles me that some people would complain about such a thing.
Well, I think the reason people are bringing it up so heavily here is that Giant Bomb literally finished their LP of this game the same day Spoony posted this.
Maybe the SpoonyOne wants to make it clear who makes a better let’s play
This game is so terrible it’s amazing. Hilarious commentary on the fly Spoony, especially during the car ride. Also loved all the Twin Peaks references.
Oh man, I remember playing this game with my friend (since I’m a pussy and can’t stand playing horror games by myself).
This game will soon turn into a total WTF especially once you find out what’s up with the seeds. And yea, York is insane in a way.
I get the distinct impression that you have played Heavy Rain recently Spoony. Wherever would I have gotten that idea?
The player is ‘Zach’, right? You did choose the response the only time we know Zach talked back.
Well, Zach is actually more an Imaginary Friend/Voice in his Head. You learn more of it later in the game.
Send Him to Foster’s Both of them!
derp spoilers ahead:
The Ring was actually always a virtual reality!
The third book in the series, Loop, reveals that the previous two books have taken place in a computer simulation designed to create life. Sadako was a virus, if memory serves.
So the Ring was basically Sims?
A stupid way to kill of a franchise…
I haven’t personally read Loop yet, but it’s supposed to be very good.
So wait a second, you’ve been fighting Jiang Shi this entire time? It’s a long way from China guys, how the hell did you get there? ((For those of you who don’t know a Jiang Shi is pretty much a hopping Chinese vampire, and no I’m not going to go into a Twilight joke….although it would have been a hell of a lot funnier if Edward was a Jiang Shi))
The zombies saying “kill me”, etc at first was creepy as all fuck, but they say it so often that it’s lost the creepyness.
Deadly Premonition seems like Resident Evil and Silent Hill’s horrible lovechild.
Silent Hill meets Twin Peaks makes more sense!
That’s true! I think what made me think of RE is the random over-top movement from the dog scene and the RE-4 like shooting system. But story wise, definitely more Twin Peaks
The buzzing that is going on in the audio of your voiceover is painfully distracting. :(
I got the Twin Peaks references…. I like how you like what I like.
Since there’s horror elements in this game, I suppose you could say it qualifies as PHANTASMAGORIA!!!!!!!!!!!!
A can of pickles? That’s ridiculous. What’s next, a can of lightbulbs?
YES! Spoony, you fail to disappoint!
This has got to be the best game you could’ve done another Let’s Play of!
This game has it all! I’m still waiting for the FFX vids, but this is a hell of a surprise. Can’t get over how otherworldly and bad this game looks. It’s so B rated it’s fantastic! Deadly Premonition is like if Silent Hill 3 drank paint thinner as a child!
Please, mate, keep this LP going. I need to see more wit & wacky, and this LP is both. Hell, if this LP turns out as phenomenal as I think it will, I’ll even buy the game myself!
Wouldn’t it be awesome if Zach turned out to be Zach Morris?
Well, Zach. Looks like this game’s getting some cult status and some attention from these internet folks. We’ll see how it goes.
Anyways, time to tell the future via Coffee…
York: “What do you think, Zach?”
(A) Tell Hans the response was great…and that Naoto rocks
(B) Who the hell are you talking to, York?
—> (C) The milk swirls are so preeeetty…
As man had succumbed to the Martians, so had our land succumbed to the Red Vines.
But nevermind that, teh Smarty is online!
That was so cute.
And this game is batshit. I wonder if that’s a dark roast he’s using to play fortune teller with.
Hey, Spoonster. Great to see you’re getting the site updated more often again. I’m sure we all missed you. I did :)
Anyway, great riff there, always awesome. You’re the king of obscure references. Or maybe I’m just dumb, who knows? By the way, I think you have a little feedback there. I guess you do really record your audio together with the game footage and the game sound gets caught in your mic. It’s a tat distracting. Just saying. Other than that, keep up the good work and Godspeed.
PS: Where the fuck does the flashlight come from? His hands are moving and the light’s steady, so he can’t be holding it. Does his cigarette shine so bright? Man, this game’s engine really sucks ^^. Aiming looks aweful, too. And just for the record, if teleporting zombies were coming at me like that, I WOULD be creeped out.
He obviously is suffering from the same ocular condition Dr. Janosz Poha has. Must be from hanging around paintings of a Carpathian ruler too much.
WOOOOWWW this game wants to be Twin Peaks sooo bad. Is it me, or is that painting hanging over the bed at 60:11 the shot of the Great Northern and the waterfall used often in the title sequence of Twin Peaks?
And Still fails
There’s something oddly compelling about this game. It may be the fact that the main character is batshit insane.
Is Zack supposed to be like Diane in Twin Peaks but instead of having a tape recorder this guy is just bat shit insane? Also that sound the zombies make is ridiculous i thought it was Spoony doing it the first few times.
Any way I enjoyed it.
Pretty much. The developers had to change the game to rip off Twin Peaks slightly less, so they wouldn’t be sued.
Maybe they should off called it Twin Peaks: The Game
Thanks a load for this, man. I really wanted to take a look at it, but hasn’t got a PAL release.
How come my coffee never warns me, when something bad is about to happen in the near future? :D
Well my rice warns me when bad things happen in the future
Really? I should give rice a try then…. :D
Philippine Rice and Chinese Rice usually works
I usually go for the Philippine Rice since I’m there
Well, I bought meself a pack of Uncle Ben’s. Think it’ll do the job just as fine as Chinese or Philippine rice…. :D
Spoony, I think you are a funny and intelligent guy.
so I’m begging you -
BEGGING YOU -
Please don’t misinterpret this game. Graham and Paul from Unskippable have already completely missed the point this week, I am asking you not to do the same. Please do not make the mistake of thinking that Deadly Premonitions is taking itself seriously at all. It set out to be a completely absurd sendoff of old survival horror games, and god dammit, it succeeded.
That doesn’t excuse it sucking. (Which it’s leaning heavily towards so far.) As Linkara says, intentionally bad is still bad.
Linkara is wrong. Being so bad it’s funny and being self-parodically bad are not even in the same stratosphere of comparison.
Sorry dude but I have to agree with Facebook-859910045
It’s still a bad Twin Peaks Rip-Off with Limbo Joker Zombies.
But damn is that blond Police Chick hot!
Great now I want to watch Twin Peaks again…thank you!
Fucking A.I just finished watching the Giant Bomb Endurance Run of this game and now, you’re doing a Let’s Play of this.Now, if only this game could come to Europe, that would be sweet.
Vinny and Jeff, are much much funnier, but anyways good job Spoony :D
I remember this premiering at GDC 2007 under the title “Rainy Woods”. It had a different protagonist and the little cherubim in the red woods were instead a couple of old midgets in a red room. You heard that right, it was even more of a Twin Peaks ripoff back then!
The sad part is that if Spoony wants to get this done in a reasonable amount of time, he’s going to miss a lot of brilliance.
At least it seems like he gets it so far.
With Special Guest Appearance by Psycho Mantis!
Haha I remember posting about this on your forum when practically nobody knew about it. :P
Wow I didn’t know Randy Orton had his own game.
You know, I’d lose my damn mind too without my morning coffee. O.o;
Snoopy even the sound when he receives money from the medals and stuff is the same sound when a Sim buys something, coincidence?
Also, try to do a couple sidequests because some of them give you incredible rewards that make the game so much more fun (or at least, less tedious).
‘Assume the limbo position’ should be a t-shirt meme. Make it happen
And George woodman looks like a ex porn star. either that or tom sellick’s body double for magnum p.i.
Now you are going to have like 300000 XBL friend requests lol
So, do the FBI regularly hire people who talk to the imaginary voices in their head, get their future told by their morning cup of coffee, and seem to think that multitasking on several different things while driving and not actually paying attention to where they’re going? How the hell did that guy get hired? Did the person who hired Zelda at Game Crazy get sacked by the GC only to get hired by the FBI’s HR department after Zelda went all racially insensitive on the masses? How do you let this crazy person get a job, a job that involves FIREARMS!
Also, when should we expect a Police-Brand cigarette shirt from Spoony? Or would folks rather have the Pickle-Brand Pickle shirt instead?
Yes they do!
Are you implying that I shouldn’t have put “coffee” as a second language on my resume?
I’m almost done watching the Giantbomb Endurance Run of this and now you are doing this COME OOOOOON.
It seems this game takes from Persona 4 where bad stuff happens when it rains :3
Must be the most boring game every… “Bullseye, great, great, great, bullseye” *Aaaaaargh*
fuse box count: 4
There’s another, much older game that includes both contortionist zombies and a transparent Dale Cooper reference: Blair Witch Volume 1: Rustin Parr. It runs on the old Nocturne engine and has some hilarious glitches and bugs in cutscenes.
Ever considered doing an LP of that one, Spoony? It’s a pretty amusing little game.
What’s up with all the choking elephants in the background..
HaHaHa the GiantBomb guys have almost finished the endurance run and now you start, it looks like i wont beable to escape from Deadly Premonition quite yet, Right Zach?
Obscure: The Aftermath would also make a good LP. It’s hilariously bad, as far as the plot and voice acting go, but it’s actually a pretty fun time. And one of the very few two player survival horror games out there.
And let us not forget it features more Vagina monsters than even Michigan: Report from Hell
This game seems weird enough. If you don’t make us watch your tedious fight against those hords of limbo-zombies for the rest of the game I think we’re in for a ride.
Awesome pick, Spoony. I’ve been very curious about this game myself.
It seems this man keeps his flashlight mounted to his chest…
It’s sooo bad I can’t wait for part 2.
You’ve gotta add that eyebrow quirk to a future remake of your opening video.
I guess this is the closest we’ll get to Twin Peaks : the video game. I’m gonna love this let’s play !
Fire walk with you Spoony !
Too bad I don’t see the Giant and the White Horse dancing
I might just being nitpicky in the face of ‘teh horrurz’ (coping strategy I’m guessing), but if the Joker zombies want you to kill them as they’re so obviously saying (in slow motion…for some reason O.o), why exactly are they trying to kill YOU?
And if this game has many more WTF moments then I might just become the next Dr. Insano.
Still, I enjoyed watching this with your commentary, Spoony. Your commentaries are always good :3
I don’t know, attacking the crazy man mumbling to himself with a gun that has unlimited ammo seems like a good way to die to me.
“…why exactly are they trying to kill YOU?”
Have you ever heard of ‘suicide by cop’? Basically, people do crimes or provoke police officers into shooting them so they die from the inflicted gunshot wounds. It’s horrible for the poor police officer.
That’s the only reason I can think of.
Wow, this game is…really boring. Thankfully, Spoony’s commentary does a good job of entertaining, but how anybody could call this game good just because it’s a “throwback” to something is beyond me. What a waste of time.
It’s not a “throwback.” It’s a full on exaggerrated parody. It’s not saying, “Man don’t these bad controls make you think of Silent Hill? You liked that game didn’t you? So you’d better like me.”
So a parody makes it decent? I’m all for making fun of bad mechanics from other game and movie series, but could they have at least made it interesting? I feel like I’m watching the world’s slowest episode of X-Files.
You gotta wait for it. Spoony stopped right before you get to go into the open-world mode and see exactly how crazy Greenvale is. The linear segments are admittedly pretty boring. It’s the things you do, the places you go, and the people you meet in the sandbox mode that make it all worthwhile.
Awesome! I really like the quantity-focused videos.
YES!! AWESOME!! I just bought this game!! We’ll play it together!!! It’s so much fun riffing on this game i can’t WAIT to hear spoonys take!
This game is weird.
The tentacle beast that lives under the stairs said so…
When I first caught wind of this game, I knew that it would tickle the Phantasmagoria 2 portion of your brain…
Who knows… you might end up liking it!
I’m just waiting for the Giant and White Horse
And here I thought you were going to play Wing Commander for us
For as long as I worked at gamer’s hell (GameStop) I’ve always considered checking out this game to see what the big joke was. Thanks to you, Spoony One, I can sit back and watch the chaos (or lack thereof? XD) without having to waste a check out.
Limbo Joker Zombies… yeah, what?
There’s definetly something in this town. Yes. Zombies teleporting for no reason and a “farm” with huge amount of generators.
Why are jackets made of rubber? and what the hell is he profiling random stuff? F K? FUCK??
Spoony, why are you shooting them? They just want to give you backwards limbo oral sex!
Wait. They moan Braaaaains, yet they bend over backwards? They should be moaning Baaaaaalls, their mouths are more closer to that region.
The opening music reminds me of Katamari. Na naaa na na na na na naa na naa naa na na naaaaa.
Wait…. “Cute Naked Dead Chick”?
Why the word “Cute”… that just…
You know, I’m just gonna pass that off, I’ve heard much much worse on this site about much much less.
I read on kotaku about a month ago a story about how japan was a bit behind the west in terms of graphics and maybe a few other things. Only I hadn’t actually noticed until reading that article. And now I’m looking at deadly premonition and it makes sense.
If these videos get popular enough, “Right Zach?” at the end of every sentence might make a good meme.
Is it my imagination, or is there a / at the end of the king line at 53:14? “I have just met the king/” Does that mean this wasn’t properly spell-checked?
You need to look closer, my friend. At least 50% of every dialogue box has a / in it somewhere.
Alright, fine, I mainly listen to the game so I can have entertaining white noise.
I think it’s supposed to be an exclamation sign.
You know this guy’s really batshit crazy when he’s dry shaving with a friggin’ Mach3.
This all looks way too much like a David Lynch movie for my tastes. Seriously.By the way, does Agent York often run into random Joker Zombies with terrible postures? He seems rather nonchalant about the entire thing. The same could be said of smashing his car at 90 mph.
is this a new game? the graphics are… uhm… not so good, to say the least. reminds me of silent hill homecoming: the whole gameplay is totally out of date.
It’s a 2010 game. I’m not joking. Seriously, stop laughing.
Wow. i mean, i don’t have a problem with old graphics. but these don’t look necessarily old. they just look bad. And what about all these popping up icons? they really don’t fit in a survival horror game^^ looks like something you’d expect in super mario bros.
I watched about another half hour of this game at a buddies house. I’m really interested to see what happens next. I love how you get to watch the game as his imaginary friend “Zack” and the entire time you wonder if this is really happening to him, or he’s just completely off of his rocker. But just for future reference Spoony, NOBODY IS GOING TO BE UPSET WITH YOU IF YOU FAST FORWARD THROUGH THE DRIVING SCENES!!! Seriously dude, they are unnecessarily long.
This game is extremely enjoyable if played with the right mindset.
I will be upset.
Only on the parts where York has nothing to say. If you skip the conversations he has with himself that would be upsetting. They’re some of the best stuff in this game and you can only do it while driving.
by the way, you can shoot the zombie things an additional time after they’re “dead” and they’ll slam to the ground and disappear, that way you don’t have to wait for them to fall over and slowly vanish before you can pass by them. and you can run through doors if you keep running when you push A to go through a door.
Wow, York is absolutely, delightfully insane! What other game has the line “The coffee told me”? None! This game, while having dated graphics, looks pretty cool. Can’t wait to see more.
“I’d better call the spaceship and let them know how I’m doing.”
Wow, its so weird that your playing this now. Jeff and Vinny at Giantbomb just finished this. I finished playing a couple weeks before they did (in their ER not in real life, in real life they finished about the same time).
Assuming you havent played already I think you may like this one. THis game is delightfully bad but the story is insane. Enjoy!! Dont worry I wont spoil it for anyone. It would be a shame though if you dont finish this as the controls are really bad so its quite possible you’ll give up. We shall see =P
Oh for fuck’s sake. Hilarious commentary but Christ what a dull, sterile, horrible, HORRIBLE attempt to be artsy and clever! This would make Lynch sick…
From what I’ve heard, this game was criticized quite heavily for its gameplay and graphics (and rightly so, apparently) but the story is supposed to be really good. I always find myself watching these Let’s Plays like movies. So thanks! Now I won’t have to buy an Xbox 360!
If anyone posts spoilers, i will kick them in the throat.
Also, be sure to check out the various people and locations in the town.
I love how York seems to be insane. I want to see more just to see how crazy he gets.
The breakfast music is so catchy.
Am I seeing a light in front of him and he isn’t carrying a flashlight?
I watched this with my boyfriend and we laughed our asses off. Esp at the items like Bandaid brand bandaids.
I’ve been thinking of doing a live playthrough of the dreamcast “The Ring” game on JTV. But after the first 5 minutes of trying it out on my own time I just said fuck it. LOL… Who knows… Maybe one day.
You know you’re just welcoming a million Live friend requests now. …That might include me. I like spying on other people’s achievements. What do you use to capture off the 360 anyway?
Oh god, those kids, ITS THE CHILDREN OF THE CORN.
So what is this guy pulling some Fight Club shit, does he have a split personality, who authorized him to have authority and a gun? And he compliments his own shots as he shoots. What a freak.
For a while I was wondering if he had hit his head and was just mowing down innocent townsfolk, as in, you know: “Monsters? … They look like monsters to you?”. But then we saw him with some real people. Damn. …Well they could be figments of his imagination though. Like ZACH.
God this game is ridiculous. I can’t wait for more.
Would it be wrong of me to admit that this video just makes me want the game even more? I can see it now: the developers were given next-to-no budget to create a game and sooner or later realised that they’d created an abomination of both Science and God. Instead of doing what most responsible developers would in said scenario (i.e. fucking hang themselves), they just thought ‘Fuck it’ and created what can only be described as the ‘Troll 2 of videogames’. The game quickly turns from a terrible survival horror experience in to a parody of itself (I mean come on, KAZOO MUSIC??), it is so transcendentally post-modern – Suda51 probably watched Twin Peaks and had a similar Cheese Dream. Awesome.
Why don’t you mention the light emanating out of the character’s chest when his arms sway by his sides?
Also, boring game is boring.
I don’t see how this works as a parody, it’s just bad. Next time they should try to be more Space Balls, less Turkish Star Wars. Want to see more of Yorks mad rambling though. My coffee warned me about it. Need that on a shirt.
Also: Why do the automatic doors have red lights for indicating power outages? Why does the protagonist sound like Link when he breaks crates? Why does Spoony not even question the presence of exploding barrels? Why does the “Pyramid Head knockoff” look like a giant, pissed Jawa? Why does the sheriffs car fly when backing up but not when moving forward?
Holy crap! That hotel is fucking huge! Yorks room was bigger than my whole apartment! I know she said there used to be tourists but are you really expecting me to believe they needed that much dining space with a 100 foot window too? Christ I’d hate to see his bill after this case is over, damn.
Haha bout time you did a lets play of this! I love Deadly Premonition!
Them kids look like the ones from Village of the Damned 8(
I love my Spoony “Let’s Plays” like I love my coffee: unscripted!
Wait… that made no sense… like Deadly Pemonition!
So did you talk to your coffee today?
Makes me think it’s a cheap ripoff of the Resident Evil series…
And does anyone else think “Zack Fair” whenever the character talks to Zack?
Brilliant! This is exactly what I come to this site for. If this game doesn’t involve evil nature cults at some point, I’ll be truly shocked.
Also, your Ledger Joker is creepily flawless.
This game looks so bad that I feel an unnatural urge to play it. Why?! Damn you, Spoony!
Though in all seriousness, that was fun.
I can’t tell if this is a LP or a interactive TSE Riff Theater. But i’m loving it.
Just going to say Spoony, SWERY now owns your soul. You do not know what you have done.
wow…. so, basically… This is the video game adaption of the combination of The Wickerman and Bad Lieutenant… This sounds incredibly interesting and hilariously awful at the same time…. I must see more
Thank you Spoony! Oh, this was just what I needed. I have an exam tomorrow and have studied like an idiot, now I just wanted to relax and there you are on que! How can one person a game and microphone be so entertaining? I think Doug had the right idea when he said you are just a naturally funny guy, Just love your unedited stuff.
You will never escape your Arch Nemesis: The Fuse Box!
For your reference you will have “Big Trouble”
What? No Fuse Box Count?
This was just the first one, don’t worry. As soon as he found the second one he’ll do a counting.
Spoony are you going through the whole game on this one video?
Hay Spoony, what happined to the FF10 Reviews?! I wanna see you play it… i never have, so i need you to do it! Oh but this look’s fun to!^^ Btw the sound that comes all the time, the “Quest event” soundy thing dosent that sound like something from “Zelda” or “Mario” for 64?! Something in the back of my mind went N64 every time i heard it!
So let’s get this straight, “Zack” is either an alternate personality or some sort of space alien living in the player’s head? Right, good. What the hell were the creators thinking when they programed this? Were they high, brain damaged and illterate morons that didn’t think we’d noticed it was a Resident Evil clone cross bred with a few Silent Hill mechaincs?
Yet another example that game designers underestimate gamers intelligence.
I don’t know about the game designers being high but I think the character is.
Totally disagreeing with you there…
That’s like saying every sandbox game is a rip-off of GTA… it’s call a genre…
I must admit, I actually think this game looks pretty cool…
at least the writing the for the game is pretty funny, and the weird stuff York is saying makes me wanna see more…
sergeant york was actually a marine but just saying :D
You CAN NOT BE SERIOUS SPOONY!!!! I have been a loyal fan for so long and now you’re just going and taking what was going to be my first “let’s play!”
You better be happy you’re so damn awesome. ;)
Sadly, I won’t be able to watch it yet, or I will feel compelled to steal some of your jokes. :(
P.S. Check out the licence plates, I found something that was very very interesting. ;)
Heh heh heh… Love your MST-y let’s plays, Spoony. Odd that you chose to play this one so soon after Unskippable did a double-shot of it. Synchronisity is fun, looking forward to seeing your take. Kudos for the “Old-Timer Billy Slater” riff at the top of this one – Deadly Premonition; smothered in gravy, Texas-style!
Agent York, the best video game character of all time?
No, nay, never….
No, nay, never, no more!
The man treats you, the player, as a voice in his head. He can light and smoke a cigarette in the rain AND use his chest like a flashlight. I wouldn’t call him the best character of all time, but he’s up there. XD
More like most questionable character of all time. lol
Cheesy as the game may be, I’m actually getting ‘into it’. Must be the Spoony-influence.
Awesome! I love it when you Let’s Play. Can’t wait for part deux!
Wait a minute… Spoony! It rains at night. You have to check the Midnight Channel, or else the Shadows will get Zach!
I am really excited about this LP. I picked this game up about a month ago and it is so incredibly strange I can not wait to hear your take on it.
Yes! Hearing that you’d be doing this game, it was like Christmas came early. I’d heard of Deadly Premonition a couple months ago, and saw the coffee scene that was at the end of your playthrough, and as silly as it is by itself, I knew you could make it way better. My roomie and I are really looking forward to seeing more of this Let’s Play.
This seems like a pretty decent japanese version of Ubik; right on!
Wow a game thats so boring it actually checks to see if youve fallen asleep.
Sup with the echo? Is that just the game also registering on the mic you’re using?
I love the MONKEY-SOUNDING SQUIRRELS.
I was sooo gonna recommend you play this, I can’t believe you’re doing a Let’s Play. It’s a great game, it gets really good towards the middle so stick with it ok!!
This game doesn’t seem so bad. And what bad elements they are contribute to the “so bad it’s good” factor. The sum of it’s various laughable parts may create a “gestalt” effect. That is to say, while individually the poor graphics, clumsy controls, and silly features (getting fortunes in your coffee) while faults on their own, when all combined together they make something…special.
Cool, it looks like the Shenmue X-Files with a hint of Twin Peaks! For Dreamcast! Awwwwwww, Dreamcast… :(
Here we lay to rest the greatest console of its time… There is a lot of Shenmue similarities in that whenever you open a door it’s an event. Wonder what happens when he goes upstairs.
I saw the hotel owner scene on YouTube a while back and the intro scene with the crucified woman on Unskippable last week. Yet only due to this video did I even realize they’re from the same game!Still, pretty neat idea; making the player a voice or personality in the avatar’s head. That crazy rain’s almost as cool. It’s so heavy it can block your path, but not heavy enough to keep you from having a smoke.
Oh, one thing, though. . .I’m surprised you had nothing to say about York apparently having his flashlight buried in his chest. Look at his hands! Nothing! He doesn’t have a flashlight; he has booblights.
oh goody! another Spoony Let’s Play. And such a long one too!
Wow. This is scary, Spoony. I was actually thinking of e-mailing you to suggest you doing a review of this game.
I have 3 problems with this game right of. First, why does York have to loudly exclaim “nice!” and “perfect!” and such every time he lands a good hit? Second, why does everyone talk in this demonic echoing voice?
Third, the grafics look whorse then a gamecube game, and this is suppose to be on 360.
No wonder I’ve never heard of this game.
Anyway, as always Spoony you amaze me with your ability to make even something like this funny to watch, same as it was with Highlander 2 the sickening. Stay strong and keep cool, we all love you.
the graphics aren’t as good as 360s cause it was originally on the sega dreamcast
Holding your breath to avoid contact. Spirited Away much?
Also, this looks a little better than Dreamcast. Still not Xbox Quality though.
12 dollars for shaving? SHAVE ALL DAY!
I love his THUNDERING footsteps in the hotel.
Everyone makes it quite a task to make sure they’re known by their first name only.
Hold on… Is the player Zach?
Great, unexpected jokes, though you missed out on a good few obvious ones like the car levitating and the water textures. I’d like to see more!
I was eating a sandwich and then once that kid said York and Spoony went “Peppermint Patties” I almost died from laughing and choking lol.
I rented this when it first came out and it quickly became one of my favourite games. Everything about Deadly Premonition is phenomenal. I was such a twin peaks nerd back in the 90′s, so this game really means alot to me, haha. When I talk to myself I find I’m addressing Zach now.
I really urge everyone to play this game. It really is that damn good. I’m really glad you’re LP’ing this spoony! Also, Sinner’s Sandwich 4 life.
This is one of my favorite games this gen, I can’t watch this for fear of a ruthless Spoony bashing. :(
I’m guessing you received a ton of friend requests now for showing your xbox live name. Well…I’m one of them anyway, do with it whatever you’d like. Great video!
What ever happened to finishing Final Fantasy?
Absolute hate for the game?
So uh, weird murder of a woman out in a rural area, Washington state to be in fact. Everyone is devastated by her death… and weirdness seems to be abounding.
When’s that gum I like going to be coming back in style?
If only the guy crawled out of the car accident, looked at his lighter, looked back at the car, tossed his lighter and then lit his cig on the car fire.
It seriously would have been on the list of the coolest moments in gaming in my books.
Is it me or was that the hotel from the shining? And why is that hotel so huge for such a tiny town? Why am I applying common sense to such trivial things, bi-curious tendencies perhaps OR PERHAPS I’M EXCITED THAT SPOONY IS DOING A GAME PLAYTHROUGH :)
Though I’m still waiting to see why the people who have played this gave this such high praise. Looks really bad so far, I would have stopped playing this soon after starting. Guess I’ll have to stay tuned till next time :)
Oh fer crissakes, Spoony. Just as Giant Bomb’s Endurance Run of this game is ending, you start this shit?
Now I’m gonna have to watch it AGAIN.
Oh well. Just try not to be too hard on the game. It’s got heart, kid. And I rather like it’s weirdass bullshit story!
What, no Fuse Box counter?
Also I always had a sense that coffee had supernatural properties. I’ll have to bring that up next time someone questions why I like the damn stuff XD
SPOONY! WHERES THE FINAL FANTASY X!!! YOU PROMISED US, YOU PROMISED US YOU DID!!!
I already saw a full review of this game , the story is amazing , i hope you will have fun with it :D .
FUCK YEAH! DEADLY PREMONITION! Just wait until you get in the car! XD
I like his comment about, “At least you don’t collect cards the way you do in the witcher. That’d just be disturbing.” That was after he collected a card on a little boy and in the witcher you collect cards after having sex with people so that’d mean if it was like the witcher he’d have had sex with that little boy.
That was awesome. Those 70 minutes (!) just flew by. I’ve been curious about this game since I saw that hotel scene on youtube a month or two ago. I was excited to see your take on it (hilarious as always). With you doing a seemingly “cult classic”, it gave me the idea that you should LP Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines sometime. Another game that’s relatively obscure, but has a strong fanbase (which I am part of).
Or if you want really obscure/incredibly strange, I’d recommend The Void. It won best game in Russia a few years ago (yet still manages to be unknown). It seems to be another title that people describe as being so bad it’s good (I haven’t played it myself yet).
Just throwing ideas out there for future shows. A little early I know, but you should check ‘em out sometime and see if you could make something funny out of them..
Also, we really need a “I’M IN YUR DREAM, KNOCKIN SHIT OVER” Lolcat.
No one anyway ever needs a lolcat.
Okay, I take back everything bad I said about Silent Hill: Homecoming.
There is one thing this game does better than SH: Homecoming though… The unfitting softcore porn music going on in the background.
Seriously though, I’m into obscure and weird games but… This is just strange. So filled with confusing plot-holes and trippy cutscenes. Enjoy playing this one Spoony, I know I’ll enjoy watching. XD
Zach… Zach… I taught York was talking to his pistol. “Yeah Zach! Help me with killing those badguys,Zach.”, “Hey Zach, do I look normal to you?”, “Zach, I have to tell you that I’m with the other team now…”, “Zach, I need another coffee.”
I really want to see the rest just to know the end of that “oh so scary” game.
So having watched this video, I find myself wanting this game quite badly, despite it being… well, bad. Unfortunately, it does not seem to be available in my country, and I thought I’d ask if any of you fine gentlemen knew if this game works on the European 360′s.
Region locking as far as I know.
Typical. =/ Thanks for your reply though!
I noticed the label on the Can of Pickles looks remarkably similar to the logo of the J-pop band ‘the pillows’.
Really similar, check it out: http://media.photobucket.com/image/the%20pillows/Tiiko416/The_pillows_-_Fool_on_the_planet.jpg
Good god, this game is awful. It’s the holy grail of game reviewers, I say. I mean every time you can point something out stupid it’s so painfully obvious you just can’t ignore it. But, nice to see that this game isn’t completely silent, and the guy actually talks to the old lady rather than putting on sunglasses, walking away, then crying in the corner.Other than the obvious, it annoys me that it actually looks interesting enough that I want to see the rest of the storyline. Genius bastards.
You make me weep.
Weird. The first thing I thought of too the Simpsons Who Shot Mr. Burns episode with Lisa mumbling jibberish with subtitles underneath. The music sounds similar too.
That’s because that sequence is an homage to sequences in Twin Peaks. Which Deadly Premonition is also homaging.
I had no idea what that scene was from, thanks.
This game I actually love! I find it quite addictive and it manages to have better controls than SH. It is funny though because it is Twin Peaks the video game. As bad as this game is all around, I found the story to be quite addicting until the end when its perfect for a “Let’s play”
The sad/funny part for the gameplay is that the zombies that bend over to attack you, when you auto aim, they all manage to make sure their head is in the crosshair.
LOL Wow.. it’s so bad, but you make it really enjoyable to watch. Thanks, and hope to see more soon. :)
Ok… my thoughts: York has Multiple Personality Disorder. Zach is his alternate personality, which is controlled by you, and he’s fully aware of this alternate personality. He also regularly has paranoid delusions (i.e. the coffee).
Zach View was while he was sleeping, thus the alternate personality was able to act independently, and show you everything that happened that day in a dream.
And this man is psychotic enough, he doesn’t need to ride a caffeine high on top of it.
Coffee fortune-telling. Tehy have tea fortune telling too.
What do your tea leaves say mister potter?
Where do you find these pieces of crap games????
It’s actually a fairly new title that came out for $20.00 ….if that says anything.
It’s a hell of a twenty dollar game, though. I mean, it doesn’t look, sound, or control great, but there’s a LOT of content in there. You could squeeze twenty or even thirty hours out of this sucker.
Well as far as I can see, the part at the beginning with the woman was probably supposed to look like a Caduceus. So either she was supposed to be a herald for further murders or the killer is the town doctor…
No, it’s totally a crucifixion. Also her blood bathing the tree. Tree-worship, it all adds up.
You forget how the snake was climbing up her body, it was twining around her like the snakes on a Caduceus. Yes crucifixion is the obvious conclusion but I’m trying to think outside the box here.
That didn’t take long @thespoonyone … you are already mentioned on the Wikipedia article for Deadly Premonition.
The game seems inspired by Twin Peaks quite a bit. So will you eat the lollipop or the pickles first? Which should I eat, Zack?
I just bought this game tonight. You actually had the opposite effect on me that your reviews normally do, which was to make me interested in the game to the point where I went and bought it. Funny.
The music in the hotel was trying to make you feel the situation. They could hardly hear each other being so far apart, so the music’s job was to hardly let you hear anything too. Brilliant, I tell you!
You’re being facetious, but yeah. That’s the point. The music begins to swell right when York and Polly begin having problems hearing each other, and it keeps climbing as they have to keep screaming louder and louder. It makes it seem like they’re literally trying to fight over the background orchestra that’s trying to drown them out.
That doesn’t make it a good idea per se. When the character is hurt the controller doesn’t shock you to convey the feeling, right? Good intentions don’t make a working device, it’s stil, a silly idea that didn’t work well at all in practice.
“You don’t have to be a tree worshipper, huh?” I have a funny feeling that the whole town might be in on the bad gongs-on. Not like THAT’S ever been done before. Small town, creepiness, nah. Totally original concept. The electro jazz is gonna kill me. It really is. Just like Synth Jazz.
lol At Dreamcast graphics with hugely oversized furniture. It’s not the first Japanese game I have played with gigantic beds.
Also I think you should have edited out that “Teh Smarty” friend blipping on your screen. Now he is going to get message spammed probably.
But yeah it looks like this game has some potential for amusement. Now I have to be excused since I suddenly have a craving for Pickles brand Pickles.
Man, why does it have to be Zach?
I felt the same way!
“I’m the player, you’re a character. Stop talking to me!”
Oh wait, this is a NEW GAME? Seriously? Like, this year new? I watched this video this morning and I was thinking “Yeah that was probably a boring, but okay-looking game for its time. Back in 2003.”
It started development in ’06, was shelved, and came out this year. I don’t think you’ve actually seen a game from ’03 if you’re making this comment, honestly. It’s fugly by today’s standards, but it’s nowhere NEAR as bad as people are letting on. It makes me sad that this game, as fantastic and blatantly entertaining as it is, is getting so much hate because it isn’t pretty.
That looked like the worst game I’ve ever seen. Seriously. Like, what was with all the *CLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICKCLICK* film flashes every time you went to profile something? What were these game designers smoking?
Police brand Cigarettes. “Lights” it looked like.. oh wait.. we can’t say that anymore. “Blues” I guess.
Uh oh…what if the peeping time thing has to do with the grandma!
Watch out Spoony!
This game actually seems kind of interesting. I like how the cafeteria scene was actually trying to be as inane as possible.
Split personality disorder? How did this guy EVER get cleared for work in the buereau?
Hey if Nahmen Jayden in Heavy Rain, who’s addicted to a highly addictive and dangerous narcotic, can get into the FBI, I’m sure York can. Hell, if Dale Cooper, a guy who talks to a fictional woman via a tape recorder and uses rocking throwing as an investigative technique, can get into the FBI, I’m sure as hell York can :P
SPOONY – spoiler alert – THE ENTIRE RING QUADRILOGY TAKES PLACE IN VIRTUAL REALITY.Fail. But I forgive you.
\edit\ well, anything to do with Sadako does. The other book is outside that shit until the end.
An Uwe Boll film adaptation of this game would probably actually be an IMPROVEMENT. That’s how bad this game is.
This is going to be a fun let’s play. Thank you for the entertainment Spooneh,
My god, I also just finished watching the Giant Bomb Endurance Run and now Spoony decides to do a Let’s Play? I don’t know if I can take watching someone play this hilarious 20-30 hour train wreck a fourth time (including the time I played it myself).
This is gonna be a good lets play, My coffee told me so.
While the game has its issues it also gets way crazier and awesome later in the game. Even with the issues this game is in a running contender to be my personal GOTY.
Don’t you agree Zach?
Don’t drink that coffee! There’s a FISH in the percolator!
Anyone else notice that York’s room has nearly the same set-up as Coopers’s?
This game is not bad at all from what I have seen. It has its flaws but it does something that is ambitions compared to most games. It has plenty of simulation elements and side quests along with horror. The graphics are not the best but they are far from dream cast graphics. Check out the message board on GameFAQs. They can tell you a lot more about this game then I could.
Yay, someone who isn’t just bashing the game without knowing dick about it. I’d hug you if I could. :D
This is great. But I’m still confused about who the hell Zach is. Zach Morris? Is York really Slater?
I never even heard of this game until now and now I kind of want to play it… Don’t make me want to play it. I’d rather live vicariously through you with this game.
The comment about the Last Supper table got me. ^_^
I just kept thinking about the movie Batman when they sat at that long ass table or in Richie Rich where the kid phoned his parents at the other.
my god – every single thing in this game is so bad,- crazy insane stupid story so far (its japanese – so no suprise there),- teleporting zombie joker knockoffs with dumbest possible attacking position,- terrible/unnfiting/ music & annoying sound effects,- crappy level design (damn – there are sure many of those power generators),- attrocius character acting,- implementation of unnecessary mechanics (sleep/hunger menagment – why?),- awful and idiotic effects (gee – lets make every pickupable object emit sparkles),- is this game really from 2010? – terrible graphics – poor scale of objects (best seen when you run on the road, our agent have 1 meter of high, or the road has 4-5 meters of width?), low detail of the world, low detail of textures (altough this last complaint may be just console characteristic, so i dont know if it is justified, i dont own a console)…- controler mechanics (not respondig too well, and lock on feature – ugh),i am sorry Spoony, i wont be watching this lets play, this game pisses me off too much,i think i know now how you feel when playing Final Fantasy VIII or X
So, do you have your own opinion, or are you going to just quote spoony on pretty much everything he said and just pretend it is what you thought?
i can see why one can think that – but lets be honest, its not hard to come to those conclusions…the most painfull thing to me was combo – old lady & her stupid pixie-fairy “happy happy joy joy”music theme,i got that she is a comic relief… in a serious wannabe survival/adventure horror game,jar jar binx mood killer levels, seriously devs, if you have to have jokes in that kind of game, stick to the black humor,nothing else, especialy not to childish old people are silly jokes.
The problem you, as well as many other commenters, are facing is that you guys are taking this game far too seriously.Go watch the television show Twin Peaks. Once you have, you will have a new appreciation for this.There is a reason this game is as goofy as it is.
Plus for a budget title of 20 USD, this game is pretty good. 20+ hours of gameplay, a story full of quirky and eccentric characters with ties to Twin Peaks.
oh, so this game is a parody of some cheese (did i spell that word right? – my english isnt very fluent) movie…
mayby indeed that is the case why i dont get it, well nothing else left to me is to watch this movie then…
Yay, more people who know what they’re talking about! I’m fully expecting Spoony to end up loving this one by the end. It’s kind of sad that so many people are raging about as if it was trying to be dead pan serious. It’s SUPPOSED to be batshit insane. It has its flaws, but it’s nowhere near as bad as people who are just echoing Spoony’s opinion make it out to be. It was shelved for four years, it was meant to be a parody, and it’s twenty dollars. What do you really expect from it?
How can she be the designated comic relief in a game that is 100% comedy?
If you think for one second that Deadly Premonition is trying to be a serious survival horror game, you are as wrong as wrong can be.
God fucking damn, the amount of commenters here who completely and utterly misunderstand this wonderful game is astounding. Good job on going “durr hurr this game has bad graphex (have you guys even seen what truly bad graphics look like?) and spoony poked fun at it so it must be horrible lol”. Seriously, how can you not love the glorious insanity, the hilariously inappropriate kazoos, the F__K IN THE COFFEE and a bar named the fucking GALAXY OF TERROR?
You guys probably hated Killer7,too. And that makes me sad.
I like you. Let’s be friends.
Upon reading your attempts to valiantly defend this game against the tide of idiocy,I came to the conclusion that I like you too. :3
Amen to that, Brother/Sister/Lizard.
Look, I get all the little intricacies they we’re going for, and I think that’s adorable, but from what we’ve seen so far, this doesn’t look like a quality game. Plus, we’re aloud to poke fun at the game for it’s poor graphics, and yes, I’e seen truly bad graphics, while this isn’t the worst, you can’t possibly say it;d good. as for Killer 7, I’m glad you, and/or someone liked it, bu from my prospective, fuck that game, fuck it in it’s ass.
>>quality gameWhat’s so bad about it? The quirky humor? The awesome music? The way it’s essentially a hybrid of GTA,Silent Hill and Twin Peaks? The storyline which you can tell from the first minutes will turn out to be a glorious mindfuck? The way I see it,it’s certainly got more quality and soul than “SHOOTAN GAEM 2: CALL OF BROWNBLOOM”. >>graphics Graphic whores are the lowest form of life on earth. For fuck’s sake,when will people finally learn that there are only TWO instances where graphics matter – either when they are so jaw-droppingly good that they increase the enjoyment you get from the game or when they are so horrifyingly atrocious that they actually take away from the fun you’re supposed to be having. If they’re anything in between,graphics don’t fucking matter. This is clearly the case here. Uncharted 2 this ain’t,but this is about the level of a hi-end Dreamcast or Wii game. But if you listen to all the HERP and the DERP,you’d get the impression these people were playing Bubsy 3D. Jesus.>>fuck that game, fuck it in it’s assWhat’s the matter? TOO DEEP for you? :3
Hey, I liked “SHOOTAN GAEM 2: CALL OF BROWNBLOOM”. The quirky-ness of the game sor far hasn’t hit me yet, because I can’t get passed the seemingly clunky control scheme, however sense I’ve never played it, that’s only a visual assumption. I may watch it again to stick with the story, now that the initial, “Who thought this game was a good idea,” shock is over. Also, I am in no way a graphics whore, I own a Wii,,, As for Killer 7, I was more confused there then when I watched LOST. Also, I wasn’t a fan of the pseudo rail shooter.
Two words for the people who aren’t understanding this game: Twin Peaks
And those of us that have seen Twin Peaks, you still won’t understand this incomprehensible game!
Considering how crazy the TV show was, I think that is a good thing. Really does pay homage to it.
Ugh Question? He’s not holding a Flashlight… Where’s the light coming from?
It appears to be like a beacon of Hope glowing out of his chest.
It’s his heart o’ gold, I’m fairly certain.
*double post. Wish there was a delete button*
Almost as boring a game as Silent Hill 2!
you’re saying this is superior to silent hill 2? you suck sir ;-)! (and no, i’m not a SH fangirl)
Trust me this game picks up big time! The game starts to shift away from the linear combat and becomes an open world game more focused on the characters and I found them well done. The story gets better and better.
“They’re finny and funny and oh so delicious. Joker Fish!”
Seriously, why are the joker zombies filled with Klingon blood? All that purple splatter it’s like when the gravity comes back in Star Trek VI.
Though if the lady running the hotel has a log I think you might want to run faster.
For a second with his hunting for coffee thought it was going to be like Hudson Hawk, goes the whole game and can’t find any.
Ah excellent to see Spoony is covering this game. Maybe now I will one day find out who this Zach is. And if the director used his “name” as one of the bars, or if he changed his name to that because it’s a great bar… insanity~
It’s Zach Morris! There’s going to be a scene where he goes to The Max and tries to bone Kelly while fending off cock blocking jock AC Slater.
No, but seriously. If you don’t mind a spoiler, let’s just say this guy has more in common with Deadpool than Agent Cooper.
we do mind spoilers, so please STFU, some of us are ACTUALLY PLAYING THE GAME. and rest of us LIKE SURPRISES
“I better call the spaceship and let them know how I’m doing.” HAHAHA Best line ever
I’m telling you, Zach is Zach Morris from Saved by the Bell.
Wait! Was he talking to his friend about Tom and Jerry?
Yes. He was postulating on a sadomasochistic codependent relationship between Tom and Jerry that drives Tom’s continued assaults on Jerry even though he knows it will end in grievous bodily harm every time.
There have been episodes where Jerry sends harm Tom’s way and gives him no other option but to plug his hole, literally in one occasion.
Yep. :P I’m suprised Spoony missed the good obvious joke. :) But we forgives him.
I’m sad he’ll miss the Hot Whore Cow Girl who happens to be Married
Just wait until he starts talking about eighties B-movies. :D
Saw on twitter that you received numerous invitations on the Xbox live ! Just imagine playing with all your fans … :-D I think you already have hundreds of friend requests pending on facebook…
He should have known that revealing his gamertag would bring on about 5,000 friend requests…within seconds.
OK, seriously. I know Spoony needs money from advertisers, but this is getting rediculous. Those two girls on the right side bar were bad enough, now there is a damn porn advert on the top. God, and I just told a friend to visit this site too.
How about some video game ads? I’d bet most people visiting this webiste are gamers of one sort or another. Or movies perhaps? Something, anything else.
Oh, knock it off, it’s not that bad. He got rid of the “cheeky” one for us.
or you could get an ad blocker like everyone else you spaz
Jesus Christ Spoony!!! How the hell do you manage to sit through these god awful games? You sir have probably the most Zen of brains known to human-kind… just hope there’s not sixty tons of back pressure building up in that old knoggin’ of your’s from all of these shitty games, it’d be a shame if Miles had to clean up your brain matter from his couch lol
A MPD Psycho refenece? Awesome!
Spoony, we need to look at the vending machines!
I gotsa get me my suger!
NICE, thank you for sticking to your roots spooney one, you have my controller! got any other titles/playing time?
Zach is YOU!
I never get tired of the occasional Seinfeld reference. I’m gonna surround myself in wood! Wood, Jerry. Wood. I’m guessing that one went even more unnoticed than the Pensky file.
lol am I a nerd for laughing my ass off at both? :P I think I need to get out a little.
Also, no mention of RE4/5?
yep totally. maybe it’s so obvious, it doesnt need to be mentioned anymore ;)
OMG! Look, Zach, there’s a message in my coffee! It says, “OOOOOO”! O_O
Oh, man, this game sucks…and people wonder WHY I have a thing against this system? XD
yea i actually wonder… why? ;p
gahl please no console wars for gods sake… or spoonys sake. a system is a system, they’re all good, lets leave it at that
This doesn’t have anything to do with this discussion or the game, but I think it’s notable anyway since it involves a pop culture icon.
RIP Gary Coleman.
The horrible textures remind me of the Harry Potter games for the PC. Ugh.
WE WANT MORE SPOONY!
Really please post second!
Kinda had a little Nerd Fit when I heard Spoony do the Joker. :)Seriously, though, what kind of weird-ass zombies are those? And who the fuck is Zach? I was more or less yelling this question at the screen for the last five minutes.
Also, I love the sound the game makes when York changes weapons. Merp! Merp! Merp!
This was hilarious, Spoony. I absolutely can’t wait for Ep. 2!
Plus, what the hell was up with the music during that breakfast scene with Polly? It sounded more like they were skipping through a park full of flowers than discussing the town…
Agent York…no, no. He looks a lot like one of the main characters in the House of the Dead series, so I’m just going to call him “Crazy G”. The profiling reminds me a bit of the logic segments in Ace Attorney: Miles Edgeworth, except there you pieced together items, locations and facts to come to a reasonable conclusion, whereas here you hit a button and all the puzzle work is done for you. Can’t have you straining your brain while you’re pondering why the zippy Matrix-time limbo zombies are lumbering over to you.
Holding your breath to bypass enemies…well, forget this guy. Just call Guybrush Threepwood, Mighty Pirate to handle all the zombie busting needs in Greenvale. He’s got plenty of experience in dealing with the undead, gathering pointless items and engaging in pointless dialogue trees.
Seriously though, this looks like it’ll be a fun ride, like House of the Dead Overkill. It’s just so over the top silly, it has to be worth it.
You are going in with the perfect mindset :)
Eh, it was alright. Could’ve used a “game over Whitley.” Honestly, though, I think you dropped the ball on one reference…when we were wandering through York’s illusory red and gray shadow world you totally could have made a Yor reference. “York’s world, he’s the man!”
I was a little unsure at first, but this was a great choice for a Let’s Play. I was laughing pretty much the whole time.
I absolutely love Deadly Premonition. This game is severely underrated and really, for only 20 dollars, is a great game.
Also, here’s a tip Spoony, whenever you face a crab-walking/exorcist looking zombie, just press LT to snap onto and lock onto them. Usually, this locks onto their head. Just wait for the head to swing into view and lots of easy headshots.
I hope you don’t end up shaving much, I think York looks more bad-ass with a beard. :D
I also hope you end up enjoying the game overall, or at least it’s quirky, eccentric characters and campy humor.
MUST ADD SPOONY TO FRIENDS LIST
Spoony I think you are supposed to be the “Zack” guy
I read that Zach is supposed to be York's alternate personality/the player. I'm… not sure if that's a cool concept or just really dumb.
Also, why DO the zombies limbo towards you?
how about leaving the (possible) spoilers you read about in your head instead of posting them here? i’ve played through the whole game so i know you’re wrong, but how bout you leave the mystery intact for people who care about the game?
I’m sorry, I wasn’t aware that was a spoiler…
I tougt the game look very good. Of course you can say average control , very bad graphic and text way too much slow but so far there is a very unique atmospher surrounding the game and a big sens of mystery. Of course it is just a matter of point of view , the strange reaction of the main character after the accident and to tell the truth most of the time(his almost banale reaction when he enter the city and when eh see these strange shit happening)including his talk with zack all this could be seen as non-sensical but to me they are just strange thing happening in the purpose to create a feeling, to lose the player far from his confort zone.
You make a lot of reference to twin peak and yeah I guess the creator see twin peak, but so far the game do what twin peak should have maybe done and what David Lynch generally should maybe do less, confuse the spectator so that eh can count not on his logic but on his feeling.
I dont see the complete game maybe at the end it will be nothing more than a lousy thriller but so far, it is a game that take the risk to create lock without key and even if you dont understand everything I dont think its a weakness I just think it simply bring up the game at a point were pretty few game are, the point where the game have a personnality, a soul
8:15 oh my god it's twin demonic justin biebers!!! run for your lives!!! lol
14:18 maybe he was driving a toyota! :D
so this is pretty much just a crappy knock off of silent hill i guess?
hillarious btw :D can't wait for more
Man, this is giving me serious Twin Peaks vibes… I was half expecting the old man in the beginning to say something like: “She’s dead. Wrapped in plastic…” Looking forward to see more of this Japanese knock-off of Twin Peaks. :D
I´m not one to comment alot here, I mostly just watch, but after seeing this, I just have to write a few things.
First of all, did those limbo-dancing-upsidedown-zombinething-gummies said “Spoooony” almost at the beginning? At least they said something near those words so it sounded like it. (Coincidence?)
Secondly, it´s a really slow and weird game in all… could´ve done better with : faster text, not too much time on everything and maybe more action-sequences with responsive control. (I could just imagine the clunky controller what was heard in this LP) I guess it´s aged, but still… it seems to been made too quickly.
The gameplay is quite interesting, mostly because of Spoony´s added humour and such I guess. Well, he IS filling the void! Here´s hoping for more comedy dude! *raises glass* May the entertainment continue! ^_^ d
LOL. I thought the “limbo-dancing-upsidedown-zombinething-gummies” said “CHAAANGE” as the Bum
how could you resist making a joke about the “it's just a flesh wound” thing at 67:20?!?!!? lol
Dude. You made an MPD Psycho reference. You have the win. <3
YES! THAT WAS FUCKING PRO!
I LOVED the Twin Peaks references, I laughed my ass off… oh god, this is my favourite thing you’ve done since SWAT 4 and Phantasmagoria. Your fans love the “Let’s Play” videos, Spoony, I guess it’s just more personal, like we’re sitting down right next to you – it’s really charming. Keep it coming bud! 8-)
I saw the opening cinematic one Unskippable on monday.
I really don’t get the bend-over-backwards thing… It’s barely creepy, and seems like its a terrible way to attack. But its a great way to shuffle towards your much-need ed braaaaiinnns. I can’t wait for part 2!
Creepy games are always welcome! Even if they`re not… creepy.
Great “Let`s Play” so far! And you better start another fuse box count!
You’re saving me a lot of money by going through this game. I wanted to see just how “bad” it was so I was thinking of importing it for the PS3. Glad I don’t have to now.
Zach…Zack…as in Zack from the ye-olde dos game 'Cyberia' from 1994?! Heh, I think Cyberia almost has better graphics than this game!
Man, you had me cracking up during the whole video. Definitely cannot wait for Episode 2 of this and the others after.
I've had the game since it came out, but I just started playing it, because of your LP.
I haven't watched this yet, because I don't want any spoilers.
ZOMG Spoonys Gamertag! Quick, Everyone send him a friend request!
I really want to bring this up because I don't know where but Spoony…why do you have an “Adult free streaming vid” ad on your page? Seriously? You'll ask for anything to be on your site.?
Well I second that.
Spoony you should only do the play-by-play reviews on a fast pace game. Thats what made the swat review so good because the game itself is entertaining, This is not bad just a bit boring.
“really want to bring this up because I don’t know where but Spoony…why do you have an “Adult free streaming vid” ad on your page? Seriously? You’ll ask for anything to be on your site.?”
Really if you people had any Intelligence you would realize Spoony and pretty much 90% of people who have ads on their sites have no choice of whats on there. If it makes Spoony more money and more videos do you really care? and if you do, die in a fire.
If you have the option, you should definitly skype some of these episodes with other people. This game gets so increidibly funny later on and agent York has to be one of the best main characters in any game I've ever seen. Yeah, the textures are low res and the combat is meh and I loathe QTE, but for the most part this game is great and more of a Twin Peaks game then a Silent Hill Clone.
Spoony, if you want to make the first few parts of the game go a bit quicker, use the pipes etc instead of the crappy handgun. They break rather quick but they can put down those zombies in 1 or 2 hits.
Considering how Silent Hill was a Twin Peaks game, that kinda paints this as a Twin Peaks/Silent Hill clone.
Except that neither the combat nor the horror element are the focus of this game at all.
No offense, Spoony, but isn't this a little early to be doing a Let's Play? I mean, I love your Let's Plays, but I also like playing new games when they come out.
I won't be watching these until I finish the game myself, because I don't want to ruin it. I mean, you probably did this more for people who never intend to play the game. Which is fine.
But still. Waiting a month or two wouldn't have been a terrible idea.
I was Hoping Doctor Hulk Hosano would be in the fight! with those 20 inch Pythons of Science!
That accident at the beginning… SILENT HILL MUCH? I'm pretty sure Alan Wake is 30x better than this.
Since you have infinite ammo, you should shoot them while they're in their 5-25 seconds death animation to pick up stuff they drop. Also, I love how the continues put you back at the beginning of the “zone” making the player angry, more reckless, leading to a lot less health at the end of it. Classic strategy there… oh yeah and, SILENT HILL MUCH? It's like the deformed baby of Silent Hill and Resident Evil 4.
Dammit Spoony how could you end it there? Don't you know how much more coffee we need to discover? :P
How did you miss the monkey noise squirrles!!!!
So watch it in a month or two.
I've never seen this game or heard much about it, but so far…. I'm kinda enjoying itXD I think it's a mix between alan's questionable mind and the upbeat music. as far as the graphics go. I don't really mind them, never cared much for great graphicsXD
Can't wait for episode 2!!!
You said that you've played a lot of survival horror games, but have you tried Penumbra? In my humble yet obviously correct opinion, Penumbra is the best set of games I have ever played, scariest too. I recommend it.
Awesome Let's Play so far, Spoony. I really enjoy these from you. I'll admit you've sparked my curiosity about this game that I may have to check it out some time. Though honestly the graphics don't bother me too much. What does bug me is the bad level design. I mean seriously, just walking around fenced pathways in the dark? What was that place suppose to be? A scenic park? What was so scenic about it? Plus why are large generators needed for individual doors? For that matter why are there complex automatic gates in the middle of the freakin' woods?!… Anyway, eagerly awaiting the next episode.
Jesus when they said ghosts were stuck in Limbo they really meant it!
But they aren’t ghosts, they’re zombies :P
Oh yeah, Spoony! Bit of advice. When the world opens up, there's a shit ton of side quests and hidden items all over the place. Do your best to finish these, because you can unlock some great weapons, like infinite machine guns and shit. The later bosses are actually pretty tough, and the improved guns will help.
Glad you found out about this one. Pricelss.
This game is rather typical until a really, really fucked up final act.
Dunno if anyone else has mentioned it, but I had to correct your comment at the very beginning about The Ring – I haven't played the game you mentioned, but the book series that the movies were based on actually did have something to do with a virtual world – in the third book, it's revealed that everything that happened in the first two books actually happened in a virtual world created by a group of scientists, and everything having to do with the video, Sadako, and all of that was created by a virus that was entered into the program. So it's very possible that, if the game was based on the books, the game might have been at least semi-accurate.
It might be a national park so it's to keep people from trying to sneak in and trash the place. The generators also operate the lights and probably other things. Otherwise, I would say just take it for what it is. At least there is no truly improbably things in the park like deathtraps.
Don't read the cards too early. They can spoil some parts of the game. Toolboxes store equipment you can't carry with you so store your smg and shotgun ammo until you get those guns. Don't waste melee weapons on objects, use your pistol to take care of that. If you let your pulse meter stay high to long, you will lose health. For fighting, auto target them then manually target the enemy to aim for the head. You should do a lot better in combat that way. Shaving is important otherwise you will lose money for not shaving but That may not matter.1:40- Something wrong with your audio.6:15- That's a man. FYI.7:52- I would like to see you play this on hard. Are you man enough Spoony one!8:54- Symbolic poetry.14:57- This guy is the best multitask-er ever so he could do that.22:15- He's probably making a joke about rednecks or hill billies.25:16- eeeuuugghgh38:36- I find it easy in most games that are made no matter what genre. When you observe a lot you get could at pointing out the ambushes.54:20- They will make sense in due time.68:16- They just slapped the audio in the game I guess71:08- “Zack, I peed myself. I should have relieved myself earlier.”
wow, that's definitely a weird game. Can't wait to see more coffee, limbo zombies, and mental patients next time
screw you guys, im goin home
The deputy sheriff looks kinda like Naomi Watts, another Lynchian reference maybe? :P
You are Zach, okay? :'( It's you… You shall henceforth be known as Zach.
I keep expecting York to go all `Zach, it's pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.'
But there are explosive barrels.
Wow… this game is amazing. ^.^I can hardly wait for the next episode Spoony!
I liked it and can't wait for the next episode. Opions: Mine> yours. See how that worked?
oh, wow, the whole review was funny, but the end with the old lady, the big table and the loud music just had me cracking up, it was hilarious to me somehow xD
Deadly Premonitions is one of those games that has an excellent idea, but in the end, suffers from many problems. Its developement started in 2005, and by 2010 standarts the graphics are – unsurprisingly – very dated. Then again; graphics are not the most important thing, and while the game has many problems, it still has its own appeal. The story is mysterious to say the least (horrible English voice acting forgiven – I'm not sure if the game's Japanese version had Japanese VO?), and not predictable. I think that the game was best summed by Destructoid by the title of a “beautiful trainwreck”.
You, sir, are a genius.
Don't forget THE pickles!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PLAYING THIS!!
That is all, have a good day. :)
This is some tasty coffee!
a bar named “Galaxy of Terror” hmm… i wonder if there are tentacles in said bar.
Nobody likes a backseat player.
Stop making excuses for poor level design.
I wouldn't be surprised if Alan Wake is 30x more BORING to be honest, if the 3 years as vaporware and the 1 year of solid hype is anything to go by.
I can't believe how much I'm looking forward to the second episode.
i gotta disagree. this game wasn't difficult AT ALL. the only time i died was the QTE's with the axe man. all you need is good aim and a butt ton of ammo (which you can buy). besides, watching him do side quests wouldn't be very entertaining.
I just gotta ask. Am I the only one seeing a slight resemblence between Farncis York and Dale Cooper from twin peaks?
Can't believe you didn't make a “I loved him to death” line after the whole “I sent him to heaven.”
It Kinda Rip Of Guilty GearX2 Because the Enemies Bend Backward Like Zappa a Character who is Possessed in the Game
My theory: the director placed a bet with the character designer, saying he could make a survival horror game in which all the enemies advanced towards you in dance moves.
So far we have the twist and the limbo.
It's like a Crappy Silent Hill Mod………Two Words to Describe this Game ……. EPIC FAIL.
Hey Spoony! Here's a hint! Want to make the text appearing letter-by-letter on the screen go faster and therefore be much less excruciating? Simply hold down the B button and watch it fly all the way to the right! No more will you have to sit there and listen to the sound of dull bullets filling up a steel Mexican cauldron while waiting for the main character to shut the fuck up and take the stupid item! The B Button hold technique! Try it today! (Yes I sounded like an infomercial announcer on purpose. :P)
Nice one Spoony, you're as hilarious as always. You should try to do more Let'ss Plays and try some other games for all of us to see.
And fyi, if you think this game is weird now, just check out the pause screen! WHOOHOOHOOOO!!!
Well, let's look at the setup of the game:
“An eccentric FBI agent is sent to a secluded American logging town to investigate the murder of a young woman and then a bunch of weird shit goes down”
I have played this game, it is very original and I liked it, just think that the action could be a little more worked and ghost could attack more often.
I demand more of this! :)
Yes it does seem to be familiar… I think it's called “Last Action Hero”! wait
I mean they're strange love for coffe and talking to people no one else can see. Cooper talks to… doris (i think) and York has zach
What about G'Kar? Or does he get a pass since he doesn't appear to have any other name?
Be sure to get the walkie-talkie and the flame thrower, those two things will be useful, especially the walkie-talkie. Best time to get all that is after you are done with part one and are just starting part two.
…So this game's on the PS2, right?
Well Zach is a Spoiler so I can't talk about him and also yes York is basically a scared Dale Cooper
im gonna take a stab here and guess that “zack” is you the player. just my guess though.
All I'm going to say is i would have never picked up this game if it were not for you, overall i'm glad i took the risk, because if anything else it will make the lets play more enjoyable having experienced it first hand. The games hooking factor seems to be due to its bizarre nature and voice acting which ends up being actually quite humorous and enjoyable. Despite the controls which are clunky as hell but at least manageable after time the game is deff worth the time. I swear you could be the spokesperson for this game and many other under rated and strange titles. as far as deadly premonition goes i have noticed it becoming more and more popular up here in Scottsdale, dont know if its because of you or not, but i like to think so.it truly is a game so bad its good. love when you do lets plays of these strange games. great work
several things:nice Dr. Z ref. that's one of those forgotten episodes.I need to make a screengrab of that [you got can of pickles] that's quality right there!Fatal Frame! nice (so she bent backwards, big whoop, I'm a 220lb guy and I can do that) eww, she's made of those shadow bugs from SSBBwe should stay away from obvious danger by checking our e-mail, smoking, and talking on the phone all while driving on unlit backwoods roads at high speeds in the rain(it's interesting seeing the opening scenes without the Unskippable commentary)
Looks like a bad ripoff of Resident Evil 4, but with elements from other games as well.
Good god, that hotel is HUGE! They have one general store and a hotel the size of the freakin Hyatt in Atlanta!
I am a Ring fanatic. At one point my boyfriend and I sat down and played that game… It was one of the most painful things I have ever endured, we got about an hour into it before he literally ripped the disk out and snapped it in half. Seriously, I personally think it tops pumpkin head on shityness (keep in mind I have never played pumpkin head). I was so mad at how not in keeping it was to The Ring, books, films or manga, shit not even the japanese legend it was vaugly based on… now I am pissed.
This game is pure genius. I can't wait to see the other installments.
Well I beat the game, I think it's an amazing game. It may have had the best ending I've ever seen.
Time to finally watch this, haha.
I can't wait to see more of this! Your reviews/playthroughs are extremely entertaining!
If i'd seen that trashed dream world I would have immediately suspected Freddy Krueger.
And doesn't that kid loo alot like haley joel osmond?
This cinches it. After seeing Benzaies LP of Heavy Rain, I am completely certain this is better then Heavy rain in the “Deadly Premonition Vs Heavy Rain” debate. More happens in the first five minutes then the first two or three hours of Heavy Rain. DP actually has something resembling a story in it. DP is actually funny. And I don't feel like punching Yorks head open every time I see him like every character in HR
Quick mention for those wondering; Yes, your playing as Zach. Anybody with a psych background can probably guess this right, but York is obviously a Schizo, with a voice in his head that nobody else can hear and see's fortunes in his coffee. I don't consider that a spoiler because York does not do a good job of hiding that he has a mental problem.
I am certainly going to pick this game up tomorrow if I can.
Great! Amazing! Niceshot! Great! Amazing! Headshot! Nice!
After playing the game for a total of ten hours. here are my thoughts.
Despite the bad exterior textures, the character models and insides of buildings look fine. Unlike most games of its kind theres almost no reading required as far as dialogue, most of it being voice acted except for when going to a store or making small talk with characters that is not related to the story at all.
Honestly, having played this much and seen the dialogue; it would be a sin for Spoony not to comment on it. Sure, this series will end up being pretty long but it will be freaking hilarious.
Terrible textures. Great “let´s play” I have some laughs thanks I cant wait to see the second part…Forget about the premonitions .Would there be more coffee??
The gameplay seems really boring, but people tells me that the story is the best part of the game so gotta give it a try when it gets released here in Europe.
But even if the gameplay seems like a real downer, Spoony manages to spice it up! Go Spoony, go!
jajaja limbo position
This is on the XBOX 360, despite the PS2 graphics.
This game, despite the PS2 graphix, is a beauty with a thrilling storyline that builds up to a grand finale that is highly unexpected. Unfortunately for me, my 360 gave me the RRoD before I received the game in the mail (props to Amazon for carrying it!), so I have yet to be able to play it myself. Spoony, du bist der Meister von Spielen! Mehr mehr bitte bitte!
yes in living color reference XD
Spoony, when are you going to do episode 2? Its been so long…
The best parts of this video have to be the can of pickles, the old man at the beginning cut-scene, and the unforgivably long table with the deaf old lady. ^_^ I can't wait for part 2
“The scariest thing in this game so far is the wallpaper.”
Ever heard of The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman? :D It's a horror novellette. About a wallpaper.
I loved that story!
Oh York, you have no idea how much I agree
I love your reviews and especially the “Let's Play”s. You need to make a part two, it's been (roughly) 18 years! ( xD )
This man cracks codes for the Pentagon, but is being stalked by evil men. If you get the reference twenty points.
No, it's not. It's a short story. There is a difference, albeit a fairly arbitrary one. But for short stories like “The Yellow Wallpaper” you use quotation marks, whereas with novellettes or novellas like Heart of Darkness you use the underline/italicize thing. Sorry, but my English teacher really emphasized that.Oh, and it isn't about wallpaper, it's about a woman's descent into madness due to inactivity and isolation caused by her confinement in a room while considered ill. It's social commentary on the health care practices of the day; the author spent a lot of time in the same situation as the woman in the story. Just thought I'd clear that up.
Please do a second part of this. Regardless of whether the game is good or bad in your opinion Spoony. Even if you like it and don't want to snark on it, that's fine. Just discuss it as you play. In fact, the game actually looks quite enjoyable and I want to get it now.
I haven't played Deadly Premonition myself, but I did watch GiantBomb's endurance run. The combat seems to take forever–enemies take like, what, 10-15 hits to kill?–and you're only fighting one or two types of enemies, so it's not that engaging to watch York nail generic-looking limbo zombies with his pea-shooter while mumbling “excellent! nice!” every two seconds for a half hour just to get to the next (admittedly wacky and hilarious) cutscene. My guess is Spoony didn't want to subject us to the tedium, so he's probably not going to follow this up.
WHEN is Spoony gonna put up Episode 2? :( Been waiting forever!
I would also like to see part two of this.
I was actually so amussed by this game, that I went out of my way (since i dont own an xbox) to look up some of the cutscenes and gameplay of this game, and watch it like a movie. I wont spoil anything, but this game is seriously messed up ( and not by the gameplay, but just the storyline is so….bizzare and out-there) I can't wait for the next review :D
I just realized that one of the bars in this game, is called the SWERY '65 is named after one of the creators of the game that Spoony criticized :P
You sure this isn't a SUDA 51 production? It makes about as much sense… Killer 7's psychoness and a screwed up combat system. Why didn't I finish that game? Oh. That's right, HIT DETECTION FROM HELL!!!!
Spoony…..please finsih this…..verry funny!!
So when you gonna be doing more of these?
Oh please please please please PLEASE do a part 2 already!!!!!
I check back here every day to see if Spoony's put up part 2… sadly always disappointed… then I go rewatch some old reviews <3
*sigh* Thanks to Spoony (and many other internet reviewers), while very funny, changes somebody's opinion of a not so perfect, but miles from terrible game. :[
I kinda want to play this now, but the PS3 version is only available in Japan… This looks fun if a bit tweaked. Can't wait to see Ep. 2.
Please make another Ep. of this game. You will please the universe.
Where the hell is the torch light coming from after he crashes his car?He's certainly not HOLDING one.
Maybe he has an Iron-Man style light on his chest.
I wonder if Spoony will ever continue this LP or if it's fallen to the wayside.
I wonder if Spoony will ever continue this LP or if it’s fallen to the wayside.
Dammit Spoony, stop doing what you want to do and release another episode of this! I want to see insane/skinny Rollo T, FBI speshul agent get into more wacky hijinks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe we should start a Facebook group to show him how much we want more. :P
Yeah, me too. I found this game totally hilarious and Spoony makes it even more hilarious. :D
More twistedly, backward walking, creepy, retarted, zombie….thingies. xD
“We’re watching Mulhulland Drive all of a sudden!”
Oh-hoh! You bastard!
That was my immediate response.
I feel like you should be reading the text with the Shatner technique. XD
“F K” it’s Freddy Krueger, I knew it!
MPD Psycho reference FTW!
WHERE’S EPISODE 2? I love Deadly Premonition! :D
Spoony! We must have episode 2, please! Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaase!!!
This is brilliant, I have never seen this game before but this is a pretty awesome introduction to it. More please :D
I would soo like to see another episode of this…really funny game.
Know everybody has said this. But when are you going to continue with this game?
Would really like to know what else the milk in the coffee said to the man in question ;)
Gosh darnit Spoony… YOU’RE KILLING US! We must have episode 2! On the double!!!
Wait wait wait. Your dreams are filled with bloody leaves, twin angels, dead zombies, and the LITTLE KID IN PYJAMAS disturbs you the most?!
Well, in any case, the coffee is the answer. Every possible future is waiting in the depths of a coffee cup. LOOK IT’S PREDICTING ANOTHER CRAPPY VAMPIRE MOVIE IN THE FUTURE!!
When are going to stop posting it came from beyond midnight episodes? and upload ep 2?
as much as i like those two i miss your excellent sharp riffing humour.
“Uh oh…fuse boxes” hahaha, damn, that other review of The Thing was bat shit crazy, hopefully that won’t be a recurring theme in any game…ever.
I cant wait for the next installment. i want to see the relevance of the dead tree woman. i had to look up what the hell zach was.
COME ON SPOONY! We need you awesome hilarious commentary for Episode 2! PLEEEEEEEEEEASE!! Please!
Actually, i think those red leaves are supposed to represent autumn, or the fall as most americans call it,
just before winter when the trees shed their leaves and they turn red and brown.
They’re a very odd uniform shade of red for fallen decomposing leaves, yknow…
… I still have my suspicions *grips flamethrower more tightly in preparing for the apocalypse*
These kinds of simplistic puzzle sequences are getting old already. It has been done so many times in many survival horror games. Especially fuzebox puzzles and key searching. I would like to know a horror game with creative puzzle solving.
Please finish the Let’s Play of this game! I almost want to buy it because of how similar it is to Twin Peaks. Hell, I even cracked open the DVDs of Twin Peaks to remind me of it! Thanks Spoony even if you don’t get round to it!
Never… coming… out…
If I had a 360, I’d just buy the game since I’m never gonna see the rest of this review. Let’s see if this is Spoony’s Duke Nukem Forever
Spoony! this is my first time commenting. i’m not sure if you get to read all the comments on here but please do an episode 2 of this. i loved it and would like to see more.
This is only just about to hit the UK and was interested in it because some people have said it’s a fun game despite the obvious flaws in graphics.
Also the MPD Psycho reference was genius! You must be the only person I know of who knows what that is!
I really wanna se an episode 2 ! :<
When IS the nest installment coming anyway? XD We’re dying to see this continue Spoony!
We need more Coffee, Spoony! D=
Seriously SpoonyOne, We’re dying for the next episdode, or at least an update about when and if we can expect the next one_
Damnit… been going around, and I have to say, your Let’s Play of Deadly Premonition is one of the ones I’ve appreciated the most.
And yet, and yet! There’s only one episode… I know I’m not the only one here who’d like to see more. Can someone put a premonition in Spoony’s coffee? Make him see that Francis York is waiting for him?
Awesome, 500th comment.
What’s even more awesome though is Spoony! o/ We all love you man, keep doing what you do best!
We went a whole summer without seeing another one of these. D:
on the forums it is said that Spoony has discontinued this let’s play til further notice. The reason is “There are many let’s plays of this game on the internet already.” Well, nothing compares to Spoony. But although I think it is a shame that Spoony more than likely will not continue this series and that I am disappointed. I still think it is more important that he does what he really enjoys doing. A happy Spoony is the best Spoony.
Eeffoc doog nmad dna ,ynoopS weiver taerg.
I wasn’t going to buy this but all the lets play of this game on youtube were in bad quality video and the people doing them were really bad or annoying.I was waiting for spoony to keep doing the vids but it never happened.I beat this game and i must say the gameplay is pretty bad and repetitive but the story is the best in any videogame iv ever played.I really enjoyed it.I’ts to bad spoony is not gonna lets play the whole game because it would of been classic
ohh man best worst game ever. i fucking love the happy go lucky music playing as he talks to the old lady, cracks me up every time.
What the hell kinda Survival Horror game has unlimited Pistol rounds ?
Please do part 2! This one is awesome!
what new landscape is this? its like an alien world. and its shifting beneath my feet. AAHHHH! LMAO. you fucking crack me up
Wow what a damn bad game…
Limboing zombies? Story that makes no apparent sense.(I had to Wiki lookup just to figure out wtf was going on)
Terrible looking camera that is too close in.
And the game flooded me with questions. Why didn’t the guy mention the zombies the second he got out? Any normal Human would have been screaming, he doesn’t even bring them up! Oh this morning I just shoot dozens of zombies. What, that’s not normal?
Whats the point of talking to himself if himself doesn’t talk back? You may as well give your wall a name…
I could go on, but the game looks TERRIBLE. I’d play it myself and write my own review, but it isn’t on PC and there’s no way I’d drop a dime for this junk. But I do hope you continue the video Spoony, as I love your videos. Bad games are the best to make fun of, and you do it well. :)
Well Spoony; if you wanted a project to replace “Nightmare” for Halloween, you might be able to do a continuation of your Deadly Premonition lets play.
I like how he kills that first thing without it even attacking him, when for all he knows it’s just a seriously injured woman with huntingtons.
Huntington’s Teleportation Syndrome.
They have pills for that now,you know.
I don’t know why, but I’m waiting eagerly for the next installment of this series. I didn’t really get into the other Let’s Plays (whether Spoony did them or not), but I find myself watching this one again and again. I’m on my 5th playthrough on this video now. I… I think I need help.
LOL. Well, I guess that’s the difference between the FBI and me: I would have run that dumb-ass trifling hoe over. Don’t stand in the middle of the road in the rain, you dumb poopface. I mean shit.
Fast Car + YOU= YOU DEAD BITCH
GET OUT THE WAY
Yes Spoony, please bring back this LP! Next to Phantasmagoria, this is some of your finest work!
I’ve got it. Zach is the name he uses so that people won’t know that he’s actually talking to “little york”.
someone needs to kidnap Spoony and make him continue this let’s play asap!
Zach, what do you think about Spoony playing around a bit more?
Spoony, Zach says that York’s going to need more of your help. Maybe you should help him out a bit longer and let us review your work, report it all to the FBI and get you some much needed backup for your investigation.
Wait, wait, wait. Are the enemies all saying “Jimmy?”
Oh mother fucker, Banballow from ILLBLEED and the Joker got their hands on the magic lamp from FF8 and are now taking over the world. Fucking awesome, something else good about a fuckin’ monday. It’s when all the weirdest shit happens.
Why there are lots of Japanese staffs involved in this game?
Most Likely because the game was developed in Japan under the name Red Seed Profile for the Xbox 360 and PS3. The name was one the things they changed in the western version because the original story was to much like the TV series Twin Peaks.
I swear that sound effect when York gets money is the sound effect from one of 3D hentai games called “Love Death”!
Please finish this LP, believe me, without the combat, the game is half decent, very Twin Peaks of course and you find out who Zach is in the end. Great stuff.
i love how when u kill them they say i dont want to die
i love how when u kill them they say i dont want to die
Nice, I hope Spoony finishes this
This was hilarious. Please finish it!
LOVE this game… graphics are crap, character models are crap, music is crap, sound quality is crap, but the story is awesome. Honestly I haven’t felt this accomplished finishing a game for such a long time. ((Due to children making the current game market about blowing stuff up instead of story and character development, plot, and other things))
Uhm… it sounds like the market is exactly the same dude. I mean if anything nowadays games are getting more fleshed stories than before.
Somehow I feel he is both York AND Zach… he seems crazy enough for multiple personality disorder…
WE WANT MORE!!
Okay, I love this game! It has a LOT going against it as we all know. Graphics aren’t great, sound is okay and the combat is iffy. However, I played through it three times and loved it more each time. I loved the characters and the story. I never saw “Twin Peaks” so I didn’t get the comparisons. I loved the twists and turns and I thought the voice acting really fit the characters, Swery is a genius and I want more! More I say!!!
MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR please?
Ok Spoony I’m not waiting anymore. I’m just gonna import this game for my PS3. Shame that’s the only way to get it for my console, but I really want to see what’s the plot of this game + it seems to be very funny, in a way.
its funny how my name is Zach.
kinda sucks that in the uk this game hasnt been relesed yet but it will be not sure when kinda sad though since this was relesed in like april or whatever in the us
I know Spoony has said he won’t continue this because others have already let’s played it…. but seriously I have yet to find one that had me in stitches like this video did.
“Come inside Norman!”
“I better call the space ship and let them know how I’m doing”
“I can hear you agent…”
“I borrowed this table from Jesus”
and my personal favourite (for some reason) “I’m being attacked by a Jazz combo~”
Seriously, the other ones I found we boring guys doing an endurance run and a girl who was kinda funny but she was terrible at playing it to the point I was yelling at the screen for her to stop wasting resources in easy situations, then she complained when the bullets for the better gun ran out…rrrrrgggghhhhhh
I really hope Spoony changes his mind on this one… it’s too funny!
Frankly, the “others have already done it” thing has always been a bullshit reason. Of course it’s better when used by the actual LPer than when random viewers complain about it, but it’s still the weakest possible motivation for anything. Except doing the dishes. It’s OK to not do the dishes because “others have already done it”.
PLEEEEEASE continue this, Spoony. I love your humor to this game. While I really enjoy this game, I’m eager to see what you think of it, bad impression and all.
Lots of stuff happened in the first three hours of Heavy Rain :(
Sponny you have my favorite Lets play vids on the net! =D Please continue with this game and creat more Lets play vids >w<
Lol great commentary on the breakfast scene XD
I want more of this
This video helped me to decide to get this game. And it was pretty damn good once I got past the graphics. My fave game so far. I’d love to see more of this LP at some point.
aww no more of this that sucks fraking lpers ruined it T_T
MOAR of this if possible !!! lol.
Awe what????? No more??? You are flippin hilarious man!!! I swear I laughed more at this game and your jokes then any comedy show haha.
I bought this game before this vid but I played it before watching. I have to say, if you haven’t continued in the game yet, it’s quite interesting as it goes along. His little coffee readings and talks with Zach certainly made me question York’s sanity. Your commentary added more hilarity to this odd game. There’s so much more you could comment on man. Thanks for this at least.
Spoony we demand more of this let´s play! your freaking hilarious! give the people what they want :(
From what I saw at the Magfest Q&A he seemed like he reconsidered bot continuing.
This LP is pretty much the only funny/entertaining one that was around and when I found out spoony was nto making more I simply said “Damn.” and just bought the game myself with the logic that if the first few scenes were this lolbait then the rest would be better. It is.
But I do hope he continues with this
I concur with those who demand to see more of this let’s play.
I have tried watching every “Let’s Play” commentary I can find through Google and YouTube. (Did you know Spoony’s comes up first?)
I can’t believe how much more entertaining Spoony’s is. Others are insanely long (I gave up after fast forwarding through five minutes of car driving/getting lost while driving the car) or just have obnoxious commentators trying too hard.
I wanted to just bypass the gameplay and enjoy the wacky scenes, but I’d rather just go through the game than deal with the “Let’s Play”s that are out there. Would love to see Spoony return to this.
Haha. Sweet. Pink Floyd: The Wall reference.
This game looks interesting. I wish you would continue this because this game looks interesting. It looks like something I would buy at a cheap price. 10 bucks. 15. Something like that.
I love when she mentions the rock star who stayed in his room, and spoony says “Threw a TV out the window.” I always felt noah was a pink floyd fan.
C’mon, Spoony! This game looked promisingly bad! you’ve GOTTA do it! Even if only to see that crazy old lady turn out to be one of those purple jokers.
Come onn!! Do more of this game! It looks like it will be fun!
CHILDREN OF THE CORN!!
Man I wish you would finish this.
Play more pl0x
At the scene with the long table, it’s as if he’s trying to talk over the background music. lol
I’ve not even watched this yet but I beg you to finish it! I’ve not found a decent LP of this so far and it’s my most favouritest game ever! Teamed with my most favouritest LP-er ever… you can’t deny me that!
LOL at 0:50:13. “You guys got any zombies around here?”.XD
Really, this makes for an awesome lets play. ^^ The protagonist is nuttier than a fruit cake, the graphics are laughable, and we have you, oh Spoony one, to get us through the less-than-riveting Quest for Coffee and fuse-box fixing. I know if I tried to play this myself, I’d quickly become frustrated and/or die a lot, but with you in the steering wheel I can just follow along the storyline. It’s alternately eerie and silly.
Seriously though, this looks like Phantasmagoria with triple the weirdness/coolness and only 1/3rd of the tedium. D: This game is a higher priority than the Ultima reviews, than whatever final fantasy review, than the next crossover set in a hotel room. @_@
I thank you for posting this Let’s Play. It speaks to something in my soul.
Oh COME ON! Do you see any of these comments, Spoony?
Please Finish this Masterpiece, it is beyond MST3k-worthy and I’m surprised you’ve not touched it in over two years. How hard could this be? Riff the shit outta this thing.
Come on, Spoony, please finish this. It’s fucking excellent.
Hahahah Bjork, that sounds so funny..
It’s Björk, ain’t it
“CHEEF WEEGAM… DOOON’T EEEAT THA CLOOOS.”
“THEES SEUIT BURNS BETTAR.”
Awesome video, Spoony!
this is why i dont play horror games…or japanese horror games to be exact…they are jus wierd… not scary…just weird…and stupid.
*Laughs* Wow. I got to watch you playing “People Playing Silent Hill: The Video Game!”
Seriously, food, sleep and boredom? Those are the kinds of things I take care of inbetween bouts of exposition and killing Heath Ledger’s limbo fan-club. Why does it have to be in the game when I’m doing it already in real life?
OK, I gotta ask: am I the only one who wants to see Spoony continue this because a) I’m a Spoony fan and b) I genuinely enjoyed this game? I loved the plot, the characters, the dialogue, the music, everything. Yes it’s fugly and dated and yes it can be bizarre and campy, but I love it anyway. I found it to be fun, challenging, intelligent and emotionally engaging. Am alone in that?
I want to see another episode….
seriously spoony, why haven’t u released another episode? if u aren’t going to release another episode at least tell us
I’m still waiting, Spoony.
Uhhh.. Was I hallucinating back then?
Because I could’ve sworn that I’ve seen the episode be on the front page for a brief period of time…
That was the April Fools’ Day prank. The video is actually the Spoony Snob Zombie 5 video.
GOD DAMNIT SPOONY. YOU MAKE THE Let’s Play Deadly Premonition – Episode 2 HAPPEN.
You should totally carry on with this. I’ve nothing against EP, but I’d much rather have a spoonified version.
For the record this was hilairious.
I have actually rented this game out just to try it out.God that aiming mechanic sucks.
Even if Spoony never posts an episode 2, I’m still glad I got to laugh heartily at this one.
My only question is how will he get that can of pickles open? I hope he has a can opener or it has a pull tab because if he doesn’t he is going to have a mighty hard time trying to get that open. Then no hunger will be satisfied instead of the little it does provide.
I played this game last year (it was very hard to find) and I loved it, ok, the gameplay sucks, graphics suck, but the story and the dialogue makes all up for it. And those are the reasons why you should keep playing, or at least give us part 2 of this awesome, and perhaps the best game of 2010.
Please Spoony. This game is beautiful. You havent even seen the sinners sandwich. You havent seen the gruesome, bizzare murders. You haven’t seen the Big Lipped Alligator Tranny. Please Spoony. Do it for the fans?
This must continue! Why are you not continuing this Spoony? YOU ARE TEARINK ME APART SPOONY!
She did it, Im calling it!
Nier music, reminds me of Nier….only more displaced. Please finish! This looks like a fantastic journey into the strange!
Spoony man, don’t let this die :/ I love it
I bought this game recently. It’s ridiculously long and tiring. Even if Spoony returns to this, I don’t see him finishing it. Not that I mind because honestly I think the game sucks. It’s charming at first but when you hear that Andy Griffith tune for like the 1000th time it gets old real quick.
The worst aspect of Deadly Premonition absolutely has to be the freaking localization – how the hell is the rain preventing York from proceeding? Why does everyone have to repeat lines? Who is Zack? And WHAT THE HELL IS WITH THE COFFEE?
And, by god, I just saw that this game was released in 2010. How the hell does a company get away with making a game with such a dated control scheme and such low-res textures in 20-freaking-10?
1: The localization? This game was first released in America. Even if it was localized, you still would have been prevented from moving by that rain. While it does make no sense, it’s a standard invisible wall. All games usually have one when they don’t want to let the player wander away from the main path.
2: That’s a thing called plot. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of it, but they’re trying to keep that a mystery. Maybe you shouldn’t make opinions about a game you don’t know the full story of. I’ve beaten the game, and I won’t spoil it, but trust me, it’s explained very well.
3: York is an eccentric man. He listens to his coffee for a small fortune, similar to a horoscope. The FK thing could probably be interpreted as foreshadowing, because many stores use things like that. Also, dude likes coffee.
4: Survival Horror games tend to have this control scheme for one, and the low res textures are because the game is, as I said in a previous comment, a $20 budget title. Other than some of the textures, this game is very detailed with things like the character models and what not.
in the america it is budget but in europe and the uk its sold at full retail price and the price of a game is no excuse for sloppy textures anyway
Yeah, shit happens.
But quite frankly this isn’t as bad as some of the more modern games that do look a LOT like this. But people seem to LOVE them just because of brandname alone. Hell some GBA games are better done then some of the modern games, not because of graphics, but because of the amount of time put into them.
I think the difference between a GOOD game and a shitty game is not exactly the amount of time put into the making of “pretty” graphics but the amount of time the creators put into making the PLOT. After all it took what a decade for Harry Potter to be finished and THAT is a great series.
This is probably one of my most watched Spoony’s Let’s plays.
I always get a chuckle out of these awkward Japanese games. Part 2 please.
Can’t really blame you for not doing a part 2 yet. The driving in Deadly Premonition isn’t something I’d be eager to experience.
Still, great LP.
This is better than any Epic Storyline, better than any vlog, better than your crossovers and final fantasy rips and Ultima explorations.
Continuing this Let’s Play is your top priority, soldier! D<
…I mean, if that's okay with you. u_u
Alright, I’ve watched several hours of the Giant Bomb “Let’s Play Deadly Premonition.”
I have to say that this is, hands down, better than all of them. @_@ Do not worry about retreading the same ground. For a start, you are 12 times better at videogaming than them. For another thing, your in-game riffing skills are superior. Even if I had watched the entire Let’s Play by Giant Bomb, and then played the game myself from start to finish, I would still love to see you play this through.
Ugh… Spoony, I like your stuff, but you’ve made some dumb comments
with Deadly Premonition. For one, the textures are pretty bad in some
cases, but the graphics aren’t that bad. This game is a $20 budget
title, the graphics are pretty good considering it’s production values.
The budget isn’t really an excuse for ugly graphics. And it’s a matter of opinion. Spoony might think the game looks like the inside of a donkey’s rectum, but you might think the graphics are like staring God in the face.
Hello oh great Spoony One. I love all of your Lets play videos and I always look forward to seeing new ones as they come. In fact all your vids are pretty highlarious and entertaining. Hope to see more Deadly Premonition episodes soon,looks like an interesting game indeed!Also im surprised the Sheriff guy didnt say you were standing in his spot lol what a douche lol
oh yeah and you were frikin highlarious in the suburban knights man, YOU SHALL NOT PASS!! lmao
I have two things to say. 1. If you haven’t figured it out yet Zack is York’s alter ego. I.E. the player. so yeah your Zack, gratz. and 2. I demand Tidus and York have a showdown of who can hold their breath the longest!
Wasn’t hard to figure out. It made me think back to FF8′s “Laguna sequences” .. which makes me sad. Thankfully this game is better on all accounts. Forever.
Spoony, I know your busy but you gotta finish what you started.
I agree. And if you don’t I will be forced to mail you like 12 copies of the game.
I want more too! T_T
If Spoon doesn’t finish this Let’s Play then I’ll stay scared forever! :(
The public wants mooooooooooore, and no one ‘o’ wasn’t enough to get the magnitude of the message.
This conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.
High fives are too mainstream.
My apologies, Lord Hipster.
I’d have you executed, but I’m too busy listening to music you’ve never heard of.
Oh, don’t be so sure. I’m pretty underground myself.
We might go to completely different areas, though – i.e., your thing could be low-fi indie rock whereas mine is more so the underground metal scene.
Nah, I listen to people farting into empty suits of cataphract armor.
I’m sure you’ve never heard of it.
Don’t bother looking it up. It totally exists.
Mmmyes, you may kiss my finger.
Spoony, I could be watching some other berks lets play for this because it looks so intriguing, but your LP skills are far superior to anyone I’ve ever seen. I’m holding out for you to finish this LP >.>, 1 year of me waiting for more of this lets play. Bit sad, but your Phantasmagoria Let’s play is so stellar that I often have it playing in the background and still get laughs from it after like the 5′th time listening. Same story for your Swat 4 lets play.
this is probably the most fanboyish comment I’ve ever written for anything ever, but seriously, FINISH IT!
now, i remember you saying you weren’t going to continue this….and that’s fine and all (not really, you should totally keep doing this)…BUT
I DEMAND MOAR LETS PLAYS
i mean any lets plays, throw in anything….i don’t know about others, but i prefer a lets play to a game review.
Also- i imagine it probably takes less time because there is a lot less editing and stuff? and that does NOT mean it is of lower quality.
The “why so serious” cracked me up.
I watch/listen to these lets plays all the time, some of them I have memorized though I’m not sure if that’s something to be proud of or not…. hmmm… but anyway I play these vids so much because they’re just like MST3K, you catch something each time that you didn’t hear before. Now I know you’re extremely busy with all the other works but… I’m with Montgomery, if you could at least throw out some kind of Lets Play I’d be one happy camper with a slim jim, meaning super happy.
This game is great.
Yes the graphics are terrible, yes the controls are broken.
Yet it’s such a well put together game with an amazing story and wonderful characters.
I avoided this game for ages as I thought it was an internet joke, people just saying it’s great cos of how crap it is, trying to turn it into some kind of cult.
But it’s not, it’s actually one of the best games I’ve played in a long time…seriously.
I’d rather sit down to play DP than CoD (whatever number they are up to now).
Even better a “special edition” is coming with an all new graphics engine and tighter controls. Hopefuly this version will get a better reception. Spoony should wait till that version is out and do that instead cos this version is a bit of a pain. No matter how good it is (and it is), it’s an arse to play.
Even better than even better. SWERY has announced both a sequel and a prequel is in the works too.
I got up to answer my door when your doorbell went off. Was a bit awkward as I stood there, neighbours passing by and giving me odd looks. Ah well.
love the Lets Play, you should do more, this game is a stone cold classic.
I thought fellow DP fans may enjoy this…
An interview with SWERY where he talks of the development and future of DP.
It’s a good read.
You should play “Project Zero” for PS2 ^^
i basically just played this along with you and paused it when it got ahead of me i swear to god i had the same reactions you did some word for word lol
The moment when he looked into his coffee and said “I knew it could count on it, never fails” I almost died laughing.
I really wish Spoony would pick this LP back up. I want to play this game so bad after watching…
Spoony you totally have to finish this game, it’s so fucking weird! I bet you any money that you won’t be able to guess the ending!
the dream states are pretty loopy. Maybe the hold your breath sequences are for when you don’t have any weapons, and hand to hand combat is out of the split personality agent’s perview.
another game where the music over powers the voice overs.
Would that make them voice unders then? lol
It’s like Romeo and Juliet. I hate Romeo and Juliet. It’s just the story of a one-night-stand that ends in death.
How come this makes me want to read the book again?
Yeah, I… wait what?
are there anyother parts yet or am i just too dumb to find them? o.O
Sponny hasn’t bothered making anymore because he is a little bastard :I
Please Spoony, finish this playthrough. It’s brilliant.
you’re not going to finish!?!?!?!?!?!?
1:07:58–Who invited Simon and Garfunkel to this dinner?
I looked it up on Wiki. Zach is basicly what York calls the player
Btw I played through about 4 hours more than the spoony one. If he did a lets play it would be SO boring. out of 5 hours there are only 2 fighting parts. The one in this vid, & the police station. Personally, I’m glad he isn’t gonna waste his time doing more Deadly premonition. Life’s too short dude. Also, Glad you’re back, & cant wait for more videos dude. You’re funny as all hell.
The coolest thing that happens is at the police station you fight a dude who shoots Haduken/Kamehameha waves at you from a shotgun
Can someone please throw a flashbang into Spoony’s coffee cup to remind his un-fucking-believable LPs?
For anyone thinking about buying this game, do yourself a favor and pass. It’s horrendous – terrible controls, repetitive enemies/combat/bosses/music (if you watched this video you just heard 80% of the game’s music)/gameplay/sound effects, bad voice acting, horrible ending, laughable excuse for a final boss battle, and the plot relishes in repeatedly insulting your intelligence given its absurdity. A complete description of how lame/awful/boring this game is would require a 10-page essay, so just rest assured it’s bad. Really bad.
As funny as an LP of this game would be (given the abundance of stupidity to make fun of), I consider playing through its entirety a form of psychological torture that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy, let alone Spoony. It’s just an abysmal waste of time.
I beg to differ. I was delighted to play this. I had been longing for something with at least a story, and despite it’s horrible (and many) downfalls, I enjoyed it so much better than Silent Hill Homecoming. Though considering that wasn’t much of a game…. But this game at least held my attention. Just don’t go in expecting epic gameplay. It’s all about the story here.
Dude, you want story, play Splatterhouse for the 360, or Resident evil 4on the wii….Or even the Metal gear solid HD Collection for 360 (M.G.S. 2, M.G.S. 3, & the one on the psp.)
Splatterhouse? Resident evil 4? Story? ok RE4 has more of a story then splatterhouse but still it is as basic and predictable as they come.
At least Homecoming’s gameplay was actually enjoyable. This game was physically painful to play due to the repetitive combat, enemies, and music score. It’s just damn lazy, and no game developer should be let off the hook for cutting so many corners. And the story is one of the most haphazardly thrown together, nonsensical plots I’ve ever seen in a video game. There are plenty of games with better stories – Rampage, Super Mario Brothers, and Pong being good examples. Anyone who has played decent survival horror games like Silent Hill wouldn’t praise this game in a million years.
funniest game i’ve ever played
For me, a quirky game like this is more suited to let’s plays than a more than decent games because there are so much things to make fun of. Watching someone playing a good game just makes me play the game, unless that host says something insightful and interesting.
The Room of Horror Games <3
When is part 2
He stopped the LP apperently.
still miss this.
I like how this game is like an Ed Wood version of Twin Peaks….I know Spoony will never finish it, but it would be cool if he did some sort of followup.
I’m not quite as funny as Spoony (and not as spontaneous) but I’d still like to take a shot at riffing this game myself. So prepare for a potentially loooooong-ass comment.
0:43 – Although any resemblance to fictional persons and groups IS intentional.
2:52 – It’s a good thing her hair conveniently fell down exactly over her nipples.3:55 – Oh Jesus, please don’t let this turn into some kinda really fucked up Japanese porn!
4:04 – phew….thank you, Jesus.
4:56 – The insect rapture has begun!
5:59 – Wha…..what in the hell is that thing? It looks like someone uprooted a tree, turned it upside down, and then covered the damn thing with turtle wax.
6:35 – Oh, apparently this isn’t Twin Peaks so much as Red Dead Revolver.
8:15 – Come play with us, Cooper. Come play with us!
:( i wish spoony would have made more of these
Ask me what it means…ask me what it means hoo hoo hoo
Oh My God! There are 666 comments on this video! The Spoony Experiment has been possessed by El Diablo! We’re All DOOOOMED!……..
….oh wait, now there are 667. Phew, dodged a bullet there.
thx, close one…
Whats with the echo sounds that comes from this game? I have seen lets play of this game before, and the same type of in-game echo was present.
For the hell of it?
This is such a fucking french game. It’s like a french movie.
Er…I don’t see where you’re getting “French” from. It is “Lynch” though.
I dunno, but in french movies, things seemingly happen at random. Or at least someone told me anyway.
Also, the main character looks french. Not that I have it against french people, but yeah… he looks french. I’m sorry. So sorry…
- 13:03: Buy your own satellite phone, cheap ass.
I’d love to see a continuation of this series: it’s really funny.
Honestly, people should check out SuperGreatFriend’s let’s play of this game. His humor is not very similar to Spoony’s but it is a very good let’s play.
“I’m sure the mystery of the Deadly Premonition will spiral ever deeper…”
And now we’ll never know. T_T
Wait dod anyone else notice the squirrels making monkey noises
im actually quite suprized he didnt say anything about that one.
…so, did anyone else expect to the TV in the 2nd scene to start playing an episode of “Address Unknown” or “Lords and Ladies”?
Seriously, this looks like someone decided to make an entire game based around the the drug-addled dream sequences from the first two Max Payne games.
that is a great looking ‘ps2′ game.
I hope he finishes this someday
AAAA what will it take, spoony? What will it take?? A thousand comments? A petition? A mayan end of the world? :C
Or are you waiting for that sweet spot of our despair to somehow publish it PPV
Wow, you made a reference to MPD Psycho? Pretty hardcore!
Why did you never continue this? I really enjoyed watching it, it’s such a shame it was never followed up on.
Spoony! You need to finish this game, it is GLORIOUS. It just gets
better and better. It is the only game that can stay at 100% awful and
100% amazing, full throttle, through the entire game. You come to care
about all the characters, laugh at how bizarre the writing is, and watch
an EXTREMELY japanese final hour of gameplay. I don’t know if you ever
finished this game yourself. But it is worth it. And you are hilarious
I’ve been waiting two years for part two. If it took this long, it must be amazing.
Oh I have to know how you recorded this. Please spoony I have been asking every where on how to record off a console and still get my voice ><
Legend tells that in the final days of 2012, the Spoony One will return to Deadly Premonition, only to be driven to madness, will transform into Doctor Insano, and (Through a clever use of dongly things) will bring about the end of days… with SCIENCE!
Please finish this. It’s the closest thing to you riffing Twin Peaks.
Ok, I’ve been a Spoony fan and lurker for some time, but I made an account just for the Twin Peaks references. I whole heartedly approve.
its sad how long ive been waiting for another video of this
2 years later and will never know what could have been of this.
Let’s bump this up for more views.
Sadly, I’m calling it.
Spoony “Let’s Plays” are dead… and they’re never coming back.
Spoony, finish this shit please.
“Looking at it kind of reminds me of the Dreamcast game for The Ring”.
Yeah as if you’d ever play that game…oh wait…
when is PART 2
Oh wow! That’s awesome! Thank you!
It’s probably never going to happen, but man I really hope Spoony goes back to this LP and finishes it. I MUST discover the secret behind the “F K” in the coffee!
Spoony, I sincerely hope you finish this series. I’m actually intrigued to find out what happens and your uncut playthroughs are always my favorite- they never fail to entertain! Hopefully you’ll come back and play through this someday! :)
I started playing this game a week ago, not the DC, no way in hell am I paying 40 for this old game, but it is entertaining, with terrible controls, awful graphics, and a shitty map (why can’t I zoom out further and see where I need to go?). I hope spoony comes back to it. It’s probably better than FF13 part 2 (WTF? A sequel to a sequel? Just give it a subtitle!)
