Oh dear. We are of course delighted to get Deadly Premonition on the PC in ‘Director’s Cut’ form, but the word emerging from people who’ve bought the game is that the PC port is … rather lacking. Here’s the good news: the frame-rate is fine. Yay!

Okay, now for some disappointing news. The game is locked at 1280×720 and there are no graphical options to speak of. Not even the chance to delve around inside some .ini files to change it by hand. It’s Dark Souls all over again.

With Dark Souls, a wonderful fellow (and NeoGaf regular) by the name of Peter “Durante” Thoman created ‘DSfix’. This community patch solved pretty much all of the problems with the port and made Dark Souls suitably terrific. Could this happen again with Deadly Premonition? Well, actually, yes. The very same Durante has cautiously indicated that he “should be able to fix this.”

He later adds that there are no guarantees for this sort of thing, so don’t all rush out and buy the game expecting it to end up fine. Fingers crossed though, eh?
