What is Catherine? Good question. dult adventure puzzle platformer survival horrorseems to be the most concise description. he most messed up dating game everwould be another. The plot revolves around a man called Vincent who begins suffering deadly nightmares after meeting the Catherine of the title. Gameplay alternates between Daytime, where Vincent hangs out in a bar sending text messages, and Nightmares, where he races against male love rivals (who appear as sheep) to reach the top of a giant staircase. So there you go. How about cott Pilgrim directed by David Lynch
Clearly, Catherine is aimed straight at those who appreciate the offbeat cult side of gaming, so anyone who enjoyed Deadly Premonition or Shadows of the Damned should be placing an order right now. The game will be available on Xbox 360 and PS3, in both standard and limited editions. The Japanese Deluxe Edition came with boxer shorts and a pillow case. Obviously.
Yasuhiro Wada, executive producer of Access Games' surreal Twin Peaks-inspired game, confirmed during the recent Game Developers Conference that the team is hoping to unveil the new PS3 version of the game at this year's E3 show.
Released in 2010, Deadly Premonition follows FBI agent Francis York as he investigates the brutal murder of two girls in a secluded town in the US, encountering strange apparitions and a raincoat-wearing mystery killer.
To crack the case, the oddball York must travel around town and get to know the locals, while entertaining the player with movie trivia and rambling conversations with "Zach", an imaginary alternate personality.
York's appearance and hygiene levels change in real time, meaning players will need to eat, wash and shave regularly to avoid upsetting those he encounters, while minigames include darts, fishing and collecting trading cards.
Deadly Premonition divided gaming critics on its original debut but has since gained a loyal fan following thanks to its weird and wonderful nature, with the PlayStation 3 edition set to introduce it to a new audience.
Deadly Premonition, one of the most critically divisive games of recent years, is coming to PlayStation 3 in an improved director's cut edition.
The game, which follows an eccentric FBI agent investigating serial killings in a small American town, has built up a devoted fanbase on the Xbox 360. It's a weird mashup of horror, thriller and surreal comedy with many of its bizarre cutscenes becoming YouTube sensations in their own right. You have complete freedom to explore the town and the surrounding countryside, on foot and in cars, but characters will only be in certain places at certain times.
The game attracted both lavish praise and vicious criticism on release in 2010. "There is absolutely nothing in this industry that can compare to how weird and wonderful the whole experience is," said Destructoid's 10/10 review. "The Twin Peaks meets Resident Evil with a dash of Grand Theft Auto formula sounds pretty great, but it was well beyond the capabilities of this development team," declared IGN, giving it just 2/10.
It's the sort of game that must be played to be believed, and now it's coming back to PlayStation 3 with improved combat controls and additional scenarios. The visuals have also been given an HD makeover, and PlayStation Move will be supported.
"When Deadly Premonition went on sale, I got loads of feedback from the users, opinions, complaints," eccentric Japanese developer Swery told Eurogamer earlier this year. "So I've got a list of about 200 things they want improved. I'm going through that list and choosing the things I think will be good to work on."
As strange as it is, Deadly Premonition is certainly one of the most unique games of this console generation and open-minded PlayStation 3 owners should look forward to sampling its oddball charms early next year.
