    I've never tried the first game. Maybe I should someday soon.

    I wonder if this second installment will make its way to PC ever....

    Also, kind of weird Swery is working on this and The Good Life at the same time.

    I've dropped the first game at the very first mission, where you had to find sheriff's dumbbells.
    It looks very interesting, but gameplay is SHIT.

    That might be cool news except for the fact that it's a Nintendo Switch exclusive launch.

    I've yet to play it, although I own it on Steam (fuck Japanese ports btw), but I thought you had a lot of freedom regarding how you approach missions. For instance, I saw a let's play where as soon as the guy got done meeting the sheriff and Naomi Watts, he went to the mother of the dead girl and went down a more independent investigation sort of quest line.

    anachronox gameplay isn't bad. Combat may seem too easy and boring, but at least the controls are decent.

    DP is definitely the case where if you can't hack the gameplay, especially the combat in the original version, then it's still worth watching an LP of it as it's one of those rare lightning-in-a-bottle games that only come around every so often.

    People usually recommend supergreatfriend's 100% run, or one of the Giantbomb playthroughs.

    SGF had a nice tangent in his, where he would watch and review the relatively obscure movies and such that York would reminisce about, but he hosted those on Blip so I don't know if they're still around.

    I'll never understand how some people can watch an enitre playthough of a game on YouTube. Especially when you have some dude constantly talking over it.

    Reading this thread makes me want to give DP another try though. I played the GOG version some years ago on Windows 7, but I had a weird bug where the cursor was confined to a certain area on the screen. I couldn't aim all the way down or all the way up, and it made the game extremely difficult to play. I only made it a few hours into the story before quitting.

    I have it on Steam now as well, so I think I'll install it and see how it runs in Win 10.

    Frankly It would be better to see if the PS3 version can be emulated by now.

    Aye, the Director's Cut is definitely inferior to the original. Terribly framey, lighting and textures are off, and the added scenes detract from the story. The only upside is that the bad combat is far easier, but to the point of triviality.

    I recommend using voodooman's immersive premonition mod https://steamcommunity.com/app/247660/discussions/0/613940477956873544/?ctp=17 it at least fixes the gfx to the point where you don't loose your eyesight due to eye cancer.
    There is also Durante's mod and a few other mods to fix it up.
    The PC version has flaws, but it's still the best version of the game. The PS3 is probably the worst technically.

    I don't think the memory leak bug has been fixed in the PC version though, and apart from causing random crashes it can even evolve to a game stopping bug. Eventually I had to go back to the PS3 version

    So I tried the Steam version for a little while yesterday, and it seems to work fine in Win 10.

    I almost forgot how bad the gameplay is though. Calling it rough would be a huge understatement. The positional audio also seems to be completely broken. Enemies often sound like they're off to one side or behind you when they're right in front of you.

    If/when they eventually release DP 2 for PC, I hope they also port DP Origins. Perhaps that's a better way to experience the first game.
