Already not impressed, maybe other people will have some thoughts on it. http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/08/05/ign-au-pubcast-plays-deadly-premonition

I've already watched two separate playthroughs of DP and played it myself... twice. I'm good.

IGN thinks its people, how cute!

Why bother with a game they gave a 2.0 rating on? That's like Alex replaying Big Rigs:OTRR

Which I'm sure this community would orgasm over if it happened.

To be fair, that's the main website. The UK branch gave it a 7.5, but there's no listing for an AU score.

Wait.. wait....... wait.......

Nope, can't get there.

2 years too late.

Also... The audio is crap, even in the first wiskymedia offices, the one that was just a basement. They got better audio then this.

Except everyone would love to see that on a TNT.

I don't want to be flippant here but what do I care if another website does something vaguely similar to anything Giant Bomb's done? I guess it depends on the website but IGN is the ultimate "just another big gaming website" so I'll pass.

Now if Polygon were to entertain the idea I might listen but otherwise I could do without.

#12 Edited by Insectecutor (1186 posts) -

I'm reluctant to click on that because I feel like they won't get it. That game was awesome and doesn't deserve to be dragged through the mud again.

Edit: I clicked on the link :( Sounds like at least some of them have already played it and didn't understand it or give it any thought, now they're just back to slam it as predicted. I don't expect them to be respectful but I'd hoped for a little bit of intelligence, like recognising the Biblical reference at the start (with the snake and the tree) and not just giggling over the phallic nature of it, or giving two shits about why any of the shots are set up in the way they are.

I am hugely biased because I think this game is masterful in the way it makes the player a meaningful character in the story in a way that no third person game ever has, and the way it communicates heavily through symbolism and metaphor. It demands a player who can see past the low production values and take an interest in what it's trying to say, and fucking Team IGN are not those players.

Probably doesn't have enough guns and hot babes and top ten lists for them to enjoy it.

Hey guys I saw a guy wearing the same kinds of shorts as Ryan earlier today what does the GB community think of this??

Actually, I like listening to these Australian girls.

#18 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8699 posts) -

You made a account just for that?
 
Silly.

#19 Posted by RustySanderke (117 posts) -

I went in with an open mind, since I do think the some of the US cast can be quite funny. However, this is just four Australians trying too hard to talk shit about the game.

#20 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

POPPING! POPOPOPOPOPOPOPOP.

For a website the size of IGN, you think they'd have something more than some fucking piece of shit headsets.

#21 Edited by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

GAH I HATE IGN AND THEIR ATTEMPTS AT TRYING TO SOMETHING INTERESTING. I AM FROM GIANTBOMB AND WILL HATE IT NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!! FUCK IGN!!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!1111

#22 Posted by guiseppe (2841 posts) -

Why are people getting so upset (for lack of a better word) about this? So what if they're playing it? Does it matter who did it first? Really?

It's the way of this community.

#24 Posted by Simplexity (1382 posts) -

Oh IGN, you're so silly, they are better off staying in their comfort zone making articles that would make a 13 year old blush and inane top 10 lists.

#25 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

IGN already ignorantly shit all over Deadly Premonition when it first came out. Haven't been on there site in ages. Don't plan to start now.

#26 Posted by Jolt92 (1552 posts) -

Are the IGN cast got the worst hair????

#27 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

Who would watch that when you could just watch the VJ run?

I watched the VJ playthrough a few months back. The game is fucking awesome... to watch, at least. It's like Twin Peaks, but with an ending. Not a lot of games let you escape to a crazy logging town for a few days like that.

Oh I love Australians........  This isnt that bad.  I dont get why people are getting offended by this.

So?

#30 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7096 posts) -

I will never understand the hostility towards other sites. Yeah, they may have some shitty content but all you need to do is not go to the site. The constant shitting on other sites has gotten old.

#31 Posted by Flacracker (1674 posts) -

I was laughing when they first started... Only because I was thinking of Jeff saying "Yep that texture over there is terrible"

Come on. It's still fun shitting on other sites. We used to do it to Anime Vice all the time.

Damnit! I was gonna do that! Ah well, good one. I happen to think that's still utterly hilarious.

And yes, the IGN cast got the worst hair.

#35 Posted by Heltom92 (710 posts) -

Come on guys grow up, this whole hating on IGN thing is childish.

And in their defense, I've listened to the IGN AU podcast a few times and they are big fans of Deadly Premonition. So it's probably more to do with that than trying to copy GB.

At this point it was a necessary but low hanging fruit so I avoided it.

gotta love that giant bomb eliteism

#38 Posted by Bulby33 (590 posts) -

I think it's kind of awesome that other websites are realizing how well Giant Bomb presents its content (mainly with video commentary) and are attempting to duplicate it. 
 
I don't necessarily see this as a bad thing.

That would just end in "a very special tribute epsiode of TNT" after he committed suicide.

I never go to their site and I don't care.

I'm suddenly reminded of that South Park episode where Butters wrote a novel and everyone flipped out over the symbolism and intricate meanings of specific words, which all blended together to create this message that only those who read between the lines could see.

That being said, I can tell you're biased, but whoa, buddy. You're giving it too much credit.

Glad to see IGN is still up to date and timely with their game coverage.

My cum-soaked jeans agree.

#44 Posted by Seroth (720 posts) -

I'll take any kind of Deadly Premonition content. I love the game.

I also learned that Deadly Premonition holds a Guiness Record for "Most Critically Polarizing Survival Horror Game" thanks to this video. I swear, I'm always learning something new about Deadly Premonition.
