Today I’m happy to introduce my first piece for Kill Screen: “How Twin Peaks finds new life in the world of Deadly Premonition.”
As you can guess from the headline, the story links the popular nineties’ television show Twin Peaks to the cult hit video game Deadly Premonition, which got reprinted today as a director’s cut for PlayStation 3.
I’m obsessed with both fictions, so I had a lot of fun writing the article. It was cool getting some answers from the game’s designer, “Swery.” Big thanks to everyone who helped make the article so awesome and polished in its final form.
I’ve written about Twin Peaks before. Click here for a fun rundown of the best and worst characters and all their drama.
MTV Geek interviewed A Song of Ice and Fire author George R. R. Martin about who would win in a fight: the characters from J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings or his own Game of Thrones series.
You can watch his responses in the video here. Just beware of spoilers, unless you’ve read A Storm of Swords — /Film says you’re home free if you skip from 00:14 to 00:36.

Aragon vs. Jaime Lannister
Smaug vs. Balerion
Saruman vs. Melisandre
Wargs vs. Direwolves
Ice vs. Glamdring
Frodo vs. Tyrion
Nazgûl vs. White Walkers
Cave Troll vs. Mag the Mighty
Gimli vs. The Mountain
Ned Stark vs. Boromir
