GOONL!NE: "There will be some brand new footage of Heavy Rain coming this Thursday on GameTrailers TV."
Finally we get a chance to see why this title is so hyped.
Hyped? Where is the Heavy Rain flavored Mountain Dew? Seriously, what is the definition of "hyped" nowadays? Any game that's only on PS3?
Ignore Lord of Balrogs,just another disappointed Rare fan trolling Ps3 news.
kewl now I won't need to visit 1up. F the milkman
Trolling? Hah, that's why I'm buying a PS3 within the next month. Ya this game's been hyped to death by the fanboys here. Remember the all powerful AAA list? MAG Uncharted 2 Killzone 2 Heavy Rain Quantum Theory WKC etc etc It be nice to actually see why the fanboys consider this a AAA game with virtually no footage and gameplay shown. A perfect example shown at post 2.2 2.2 - I predict another AAA ps3 graphics benchmark. Gameplay looks solid too.
I think D. Beaver was referring to the footage shown a while back in Paris. But to be fair, I think David Cage says that footage isn't in the final game. But if the fInal game is anything like what was shown in Paris, Heavy Rain is going in my Library :)
I'm right there with you when you say you want to see why people are hyped over this game. For me, I hated Indigo Prophecy, both the gameplay and the story were 100% fails in my book. How is a game fun when you ONLY do 3 things for a total of 8 hours straight? Simon says, L and R trigger pulls, and hitting the right stick in directions. That's all you did. From the 2008 gameplay trailer it looks like it's the same with a new coat of paint. Just quick time events and I'm guessing the same development as Indigo if you fail too many. You get that quick end of story at this point summary, which is a great game idea, but that's about the only thing Indigo did that was cool. David Cage has said himself that this game will change games as a whole in many ways because that's how epic it is. For his sake he better deliver 100X over from Indigo, because no way am I going to take the same crap ride again for 8 hours with different graphics. This years big games for me will be: Uncharted 2 MAG Assassin's Creed 2 Bioshock 2 God of War 3 inFAMOUS Killzone 2 A few more here and there if time and money allow, but Heavy Rain is not on that list of must plays for me yet, and hopefully by the end of this week I'll be singing a different tune.
I never played Indigo Prophesy, but one of the main aspects of Heavy Rain is supposed to be that if/when your main character dies, another character in the story becomes the main protagonist, changing the story telling dynamics greatly. No game has ever done that before....Movies don't even do that. I'm excited to see this game in action.
Heavy Rain is hyped because Sony's first party studios have been on a roll. Their most recent titles -Little Big Planet, Resistance 2, Motorstorm Pacific Rift, Killzone 2, Demon's Souls, and MLB 09 The Show- are all top notch games. Infamous looks to join those games if its demo is any indication of the final product. Then you've got Uncharted 2 looking amazing. Its hard to not get excited for any game that has the SCE tag on it honestly.
Anyone who's even the slightest interested in this game should really try out Indigo Prophecy (or Fahrenheit for non-US people). It's seriously a masterpiece. There's nothing like it and you truly get an understanding of what Heavy Rain is about. FYI it's not just a series of QTE, just wanted to clear that up since a lot of people keep tossing it around. It's a lot more to it than that and it's not really describable since there's nothing like it out there. Also even though the story gets all weird halfway through, the story is still very engaging. It is and should remain a classic. I even urge X360 owners to get it (it's 15$ as a Xbox Original I think) as it's a gaming experience you don't wanna miss even if you won't get the spiritual successor.
Indigo Prophecy was a pretty damn good game. That's the type of game that makes you sink deeply in the story. I really loved the suspense aspect of the game. Only thing I hated about IP was the ending. Other than that, it was a pretty solid game overall.
Why is this game so hyped? Did you miss the game play videos they had months ago? Did you miss out ont he screen shots they released a few months ago? Have you never heard of the developer and their previous work? If you answer yes to any of these then be proud to claim ignorance but if not, then you are being silly and need to quit.
"Ya this game's been hyped to death by the fanboys here. Remember the all powerful AAA list? " So where are the Heavy Rain jammies? The HR mountain dew commercials? The HR lunch boxes? So some fanboys on N4G use it as a system seller (which may or may not be true) and suddenly it's the most hyped game ever? So you use the opinion of a single guy and you now consider it part of everyone's "all powerful AAA list"? Stupidity has reached a new height on N4G.
I'm sorry, but is it a crime for someone to be excited about a game?
It's hyped because people played Indigo Prophecy. If you played this you have no choice other than hype Heavy Rain.
Please do me a favor and go play Indigo Prophecy first, then come back to comment on Heavy Rain. I am sure the answer to your own questions lies within that game that Quantic Dream developed on the Ps2.
considering this is sony's biggest published game this generation (bigger than KZ2), then I expect great things from this game. They wouldnt pick it up for nothing. From what we've seen, it'll all be on the story. Im personally looking forward to checking out this game this holiday, along with Uncharted 2, Assassin's Creed 2, MW2, maybe Bioshock 2, and R&CF2. Damn....loads of goods games this year.
Too bad all those games will come out within a month of each other =[
I predict another AAA ps3 graphics benchmark. Gameplay looks solid too.
how far the game has come in a year. Hopefully we'll get a peak at the actual story instead of a side story. I'd be fine with it either way though if there's visually impressive content like the last one. (2008 gameplay video) probably going to be the best looking console game for 09.
regarding the fact that such original and ambitious title wont sell that much i will be shocked if the lifetime sales of it passes 1.5 millions
^^^Maybe. New and different rarely provokes great sales. It seems if you want great sales, make another WWII shooter or a game with lots of gore and boobs. I hope people will support the game and give it a chance. Luckily it looks excellent graphically. And as shallow and wrong as it sounds, the graphics will probably garner more interest than the content from the casual observer.
Sales do not make great games. If the game is a winner, it is deemed a winner only on the basis of it making me happy as a gamer to play it. If you or millions of others do not buy it, it makes no difference to me. Sales figures are for fanboys, gaming is for gamers.
Why would u say why this title is so hyped that just say's all your a fan troll and don't say your buying a ps3 and that make's u not a troll because u still have'nt got one yet so your a troll now lol this game am really looking forward to cause it's somthing different then your normal game
But it is hyped... we haven't seen anything and everyone wants it. That's hyped.
Even Gametrailers has had footage of this game up for months now. GDC was a great showing of this game. Ignorance is your enemy. Even a search on Google will bring up some goodies on this title.
...sonys AAA exclusive onslaught continues......
Oh, I'll definitely see that footage.
Get ready to be blown again.
