Deadly Premonition Headed To Europe

  To say that Deadly Premonition split opinions is something of an understatement. Scores on MetaCritic run the gamut from 100 (Destructoid) to 20 (IGN).

Two new videos, in fact, two videos which one might construe as a bit spoilerish. The first one is a "complete level walkthrough," though for what it's worth, they don't say just which level it is: Video Games | Red Steel 2 | Complete Level WalkthroughXBox 360 | Playstation 3 | Nintendo Wii Direct Link Details are a little more specific for this next video, in that they at least let you know that the footage is from later in the game. The reason being that they want to show off what the player is really capable of and what they'll be facing once they gets going. Read More
