Are you excited for Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain? It's difficult not to be -- the developer has been wowing gamers with the game's tech for years, with lifelike visuals that promise to bring out emotions of in-game characters like never before.
They have t o be the most negative commenter I've ever read. They make happyface look... Happy. I personally can't wait to get my hands on this "interactive movie".
Its definitely not a video game anymore because video games aren't supposed to look so realistic and its also too interactive because you can interact with almost everything you see which is just so freaking unbelievable :)
"Destructoid" Yeah, not clicking.
They clearly didn't read the article, or merely interpreted it in a way that would bolster the blinkered and wildly inaccurate preconceptions they formed about HEAVY RAIN months before. Either way, they obviously missed every point that Cage made.
So, how long until the 360 fanboys swarm this article? I give it an hour.
I can't wait for this game. It definetly isn't making same mistake MGS4 did of having a complicated overdone story that no one, not even probably Kojima could fully understand. This game has TWENTY different endings! February can't come soon enough!!!
No one? NO ONE? Well, tell that to every MGS fan who has bought every MGS game since release. I even have the old MG games. Now tell me, do you want me to type you an essay of what MGS is all about? WELL, DO YA? Lol.
Perhaps you haven't played all the MGS games? Maybe that's why you didn't understand the story, becuase I understood everything. It's not that complicated.
in a way
Why yes, yes I am.
until a few days ago when, for some reason, I just got excited. It's funny because it's not like I learned anything new about the game, but I just got excited with it. Heavy Rain is indeed not a game and considering it's made up of QTE, I do consider it to be very unique. I am going to take the leap of faith and compare this game with masterpieces like Shadow of the Colossus. I really do think that this game needs to be approached non-traditionally and I'm going to quickly label those who try to act as if Heavy Rain is a traditional game as ignorant. I'm glad that the game is being portrayed as "not a game" and as something along the lines of a unique interactive thriller. I just hope people don't bash the nature of the game like people bash Demon's Souls for being hard. Hopefully people understand the concept of Heavy Rain and judge the game accordingly.
I agree it doesn't seem to fit into any genre at least none that come to mind, maybe it would be best labeled as an interactive story book, though utilizing a controller. I don't know, but even as a story it wouldn't make to much sense because of the multiple branching paths. The only thing I'm sure of is that I want the game :). @cmrbe: Agreed
Yea man, that happens to me some times. I get excited over a game I didn't really look forward to. haha, weird. Anyways, yea I'm really looking forward to Heavy Rain. The devs are giving it all they've got, so it's gonna be great.
I wasn't sold until I saw an extended play video... http://www.gametrailers.com... Now, holy FFFF! I want to play this game NOW!!
Its coz its a Sony ONLY game, if it was a multiplat game or a PC exclusive itll b a totally different story Cage hasnt gotta explain himself 2-any-1 and certainly not 2-me i know wot 2 expect from Heavy Rain, i prayed 4 Fahrenheit 2 and got Heavy Rain instead Roll on February woop woop woop
I have to agree with him. If someone asked me to quantify Heavy Rain, explain the concept or categorise it, I don't think I could do it in 'videogame terms'.
i like how the 360 fanboys actually think that by calling this game a movie is somehow making fun of the game lol calling this game a movie is the best compliment a game can get so come on with the "movie" comments...anyways cannot wait for this game i absolutely loved indigo prophecy
That's funny. I haven't heard any 360 fanboys make fun of this yet. Give me a link to an article when 360 fanboys made fun of Heavy Rain. I wanna know who ta watch out for :) @Toast- LOL, funny stuff.
http://n4g.com/ps3/NewsCom-... 5th comment in the open zone http://n4g.com/ps3/NewsCom-... 3rd comment in the open zone notice its from the same person lol
@ Dead Seriously, are you the F-ing Thought Police? You're in here and the Gamer Zone teliing people what to comment and how to comment. Just let people say whatever, yes including the delerious Xbox fanboys, and let the MODS decidewhat stays and what goes. . it's THEIR site.
You should see how the IGN boards reacted to the GT5 demo. They are all like "omg.. the game is the SUX... too realistic, blah blah blah". Whatever.. Xbots keep saying realistic=stupid, then not realistic enough=stupid. Such lametards.
no they right its not a videogame its a masterpiece just like all other sony games
Everybody was having a nice discussion until you decided to push your Sony agenda
"no they right its not a videogame its a masterpiece just like all other sony games" Hey man, if you think Lair and Heavenly Sword were masterpieces then your entitled to your opinion. I for one think Bayonetta is a masterpiece as well and thats MY opinion. Coincidently, IGN also likes Bayonetta! http://ps3.ign.com/articles...
Lair was a solid and fun game after they patched the controls. It's obviously not a landmark sony title like Ratchet and Clank, Infamous, MGS4, Uncharted 1 & 2, Killzone 2... oh you want me to keep going? I'm glad you could find 1 or 2 games to b!tch about though, good for you.
Woah Veneno relax dude..its not that serious :/
And yet...I'll enjoy it more than any game I've ever played. I guarantee it.
People should be honored that this particular game is getting the hype and attention that it is. Heavy Rain is pushing the boundaries of the definition of "game", which is great! Games should be overtaking movies and art itself.
i already have some money down on this game....
I was undecided about this game but I change my mind, I want it so bad after i seen hhg played it, I was convince.
Time for gamers to playbeyond.
This game is amazing I just can't wait for it awesomeness I'm play the game more then 10 times that's how good he game imo is going to be. Btw this a lil bit off topic here lol but I can't wait for modnation racers I haven't played a good kart racing game in a long time I'm have fun with that game.
I've got 2 beta codes for it :)
Sony are forward thinkers in supporting new genres. They have really pushed new genres this generation unlike Nintendo and Microsoft.
You are definitely right.
is as good as Dragon's Lair
Given that Sega created Shenmue I suspect that if the Dreamcast hadn't been discontinued so soon we might have seen games like Heavy Rain 5 or more years ago. I'm looking forward to this and Alan Wake in particular.
