Deadly Premonition review

Listen up, fans of intriguing storytelling, because I have a great game for you. Oh hang on, I should have been more specific. I’m looking for fans of intriguing storytelling who also enjoy cars that drive like shopping trolleys with a stick jammed in one wheel, intermittent game crashing, an excess of QTEs and some frankly tedious game mechanics.

Deadly Premonition brings its surreal charms to Steam Greenlight

In an appropriately weird twist, surreal, cult Xbox 360 survival horror game Deadly Premonition has - out of nowhere - spawned a PC version. It's currently sitting in the Greenlight queue, hoping to trap unwary visitors with its promises of coffee and the improvements of the PS3's Director's Cut version, with some PC exclusives thrown in. If this is the first time you've heard of the game: yes, there is a trailer; no, it doesn't really help.

Rising Star Entertainment, until now an exclusively console-focused publisher, are teaming with ArmA creators Bohemia Interactive to release Carrier Command: Gaea Mission in North America this fall. We've been keeping an eye on the game at E3, but the until now, we weren't sure if it would be released in North America. This trailer gives you a taste of the real-time strategy action, based on the old Carrier Command from the 80s.
