Take a look at these new screen grabs from Quantic Dreams' PS3 exclusive Heavy Rain.
WTF happen to the graphics this game look like an early ps3 game.
this from an early alpha build, this game is coming in 2010. That video you watched last year was a showcase for what ps3 can do.
Well let's hope they make the PS3 do it, because it's obviously not doing it here.
QTE's do not show what the PS3 can do. Games like Dragons lair used QTE's several generations ago...QTE's can be done on any platform...It is not a game that can define what a console can and cannot do. I will take Dragons Lair cartoon animation over any other kind of of QTE game that mainly focuses on QTE's.
QTE's are only one part of what Heavy Rain is about..
QTE's may only be 1 part of the game...but they are the majority of the game since it is the most interaction with the game the gamer will be doing. The rest is story.
So you've played the game, Man of the year?
It's a nice change from all the running and gunning nowadays, wouldn't you say?
I agree. I am actually very interrested in the game. Mostly the story. And i like how your decisions will have an impact on the overall gameplay and experience. @TheBand1t - With all the recently released info about the game...do i really need to play it to understand the mechanics? It is all pretty much explained to you from the 1up articles. So give your head a shake would ya. Going by your rational i shouldn't get excited about it or any other game if i haven't played it yet.
WOW...looks like a movie. Edit I like the pic on the car.
yea i hope you get to drive the cars. if any of u hav watched the new footage from gttv don't u think it looks a little TOO much like a movie? u barely ever got to move around urself. only when walking up to the black guy. then the rest of it was one huge qte sequence. i hope the whole game isn't like this... i gotta say though, the graphics are amazing!
well thats just a clip, who knows how much real movement is in the final game. they said there would be a lot of investigating, so your gonna be walking around locations and looking for clues and figuring out secrets. this game isn't focused much on real "gameplay" per say, at least not by modern standards, but more of just telling an interactive narrative. its a suspense thriller, not an action thriller. anyways, i gotta say i find that main female character to be extremely attractive. now they're saying there will be sex scenes? hopefully shes in one, they're already showing her dancing in skimpy pantys in those clips :D cant wait to see that hahahahahah. (im so pathetic)
looks very average. if this is supposed to take on alan wake, youve gotta be kidding me
Wow 360 Man, no one said it was supposed to take on any game. It is simply supposed to entertain. But you wouldnt know because your too busy worrying about sales.
does Alan Wake even exists ?
Get a life 360Man and stop trolling this article. There are people who actually care about games here. Nobody mentioned Alan Wake at all and you had to be off topic as usual.
No, Heavy Rain isnt supposed to take on Alan Wake... Uncharted 2, God of War 3, Rachet & Clank ACIT, Trico, inFAMOUS, MAG along with the rest of the incredible upcoming PS3 games, as well as Heavy Rain... are meant to take on Alan Wake (in which we have barely seen ANYTHING and what we have seen has not been for the 360 but for PC!) Also, this looks like its JUST my type of game, its a "Heavy" story game which are my favourites. Love the idea of playing through this story with 4 different characters which each have their own paths - which cross some time in the game. Also like the idea of when you die, the story changes and adapts to your actions and play through the rest of it as another character. Even if this game was like 5 hours, the replay value would be triple (or should i say quadruple) that.
@kionic wow man everysingle comment Ive read for u on any game has been positive or u bring up a good point...have a bubble for being a TRUE GAMER @ 360 man wow everysingle comment Ive read for u has been a bullsh*t comment ure started to become worse that agent r*tard(vx)...lose a bubble for being a COMPLETE FAIL OF A GAMER
I can confidently say Alan Wake is vaporware.
@ sevwolf i call BS on ur claims apart from expressing my feelings on heavy rain wen on earth have u seen me troll and talk crap recently? ur just a little boy chattin sheet
Is that Fox mulder? Anyway waiting for this game.
LOL i think it is.
Yeah, it's me..
Looks almost as good as Mass Effect.
Looks almost as good as Mass Effect. /sarcasm
Haha. Ok. man. While Mass Effect looks great, I don't think it looks as good as this game. This game, to me looks even better than KZII, and I say that because I lean towards Heaven Rains art style and presentation, when compared to KZ II's. I don't know why, but I think this game will change some things in the industry. (here's to hoping) Last Quantic Dream game I played was Omikron: Nomad Soul, on DC. It got thoroughly enjoyed. ;-)
Yeah..mass effect..with that little 2 second black screen loading before you can sit and watch the most lifeless, dull A.I talk about random things.That compares so well with Heavy Rain. Kudos to you *Slowly claps hands*
By the way.. Heavy Rain looks incredible http://www.gametrailers.com...
Very very nice. The Character models look awesome.
Every time a new HD trailer comes out, some website presses Print Screen a couple times and proclaims "new HD screens released." Case in point, this and MW2.
Agreed, it's a very cheap way of getting some hits. People click on it expecting to see something new when really, like you said, it's all shots lifted from a recent trailer.
I watched Spike last night the voice acting wasn't too great. imo
Have you guys seen the latest episode of GTTV? It's all about Heavy Rain. Looks like it will be similar to Indigo Prophecy in many ways, which is awesome imo. The office scene with the caterpillars is a gaming moment I'll never forget. Great game.
So who are you stealth trolls? Interns from g4tv? Viral marketers from M$? Staff from alan wake utilizing your dev time? Quit hiding!
What the heck are you talking about?
worst texture i ever seen...
Oh really ?
...does anyone know if angelo badalamenti is doing the soundtrack again? Indigo Prophecy really shined with his compositions.
mass effectt looks better
Sony keeps pumping out these graphical master pieces that seem to out do another PS3 exclusive. The only real competition Sony seems to have is their own games. Just shows the PS3 has a lot of power under the hood. And it seems that it's barely beginning to get put to use.
Ooooh, this game is looking good so far.
This game looks so freaking boring and in all honesty not so good graphically. I really enjoyed indigo but this is one of those games I can tell that will put me to sleep. After seeing Trico I will admit this game just doesn't hold up well. Edit below: Actually it make's a lot of sense and Heavy rain is not the exact same thing as indigo. It makes no sense because you don't want it to. I looks boring so deal with it.
how can you love Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit and think Heavy Rain is crap? you either like those types of adventure games or you don't, Heavy Rain is pretty much an expansion of the Fahrenheit formula and so fans should be excited... your comment makes no sense if Heavy Rain puts you to sleep then so should IP/Fahrenheit...
@lowcarb What heyhey says is true. It doesnt make so much sense you liked Indigo P and think this one looks boring :S Are you looking for excuses to dislike this one? something related to exclusiveness is hurting you perhaps? Game is in the same vein of Indigo P but this time Quantum D has more resources to expand their formula, aiming for AWESOME realistic graphics (look GTTV video), immersion and mature storytelling. I hope they be successful. More variety the better. Too many twitchy shooters out there.
Just because I said it looks boring doesn't mean it will be to me. This has nothing to do with the game being exclusive so get off your high horse. If I wanted to play the game that bad I would simply play it on PS3. Sorry to say this but QTE and to much of it can kill a game. Sure it may all sound good but this game looks to be a let down.
this games looking amazing,talk about ps3 being spoilt for choice hope they release that taxidermist demo during E3 that would be awesome.
I'm sorry, the graphics are mind-blowing, but I just don't like Quantum Theory's games. If this game is ALL about QTE's then I'm knocking it off my list.
Nothing compared to Uncharted 2, Trico or God of War 3! Damn, even Resident Evil 5 looks better. How can his be the best game (graphically)?
You need to watch this: http://www.gametrailers.com... Those screengrabs dont do HR justice.
Thank you for the Link! It looks better in motion! Although It does not look as good as the games, Ive mentioned above.
This is a game i must have! Ohh the thrill! I can just imagine it! The best part is that even if ur character dies, the story continues. How awesome isnt that, seriously?
Anyone complaining about QTE's have never played this kind of game before. There's a forum on this site about the hype around this game, i urge anyone that is not familiar with this type of game to have a look at it. It will appeal to a certain set of gamers that have experienced this type of game before, and many will be disappointed. I hope that some of the hype wears off to avoid too much disappointment from those people. Personally i enjoy this kind of game and others like it, I hope it can create a draw in factor to those that havn't played these kind of games before so that they may experience a different type of gaming. It's looking exceptional so far and can't wait for it.
I am a 100 percent PS3 Fanboy! :) But I must unfortunately say that the game from year to year looks worse Oo
