Quantic Dream boss David Cage has said that objects in thriller Heavy Rain may only be used in context, so don't expect to be walking around inside houses stabbing screwdrivers into coffee pots.
This can only be surprise for those that have not played Indigo Prophecy. If i want guns i have billion of other FPS/3rdPS games, so glad to hear this.
Yeah Resistance, Resistance 2, Haze. It must get boring after a while playing so many generic first person shooters.
You know, if you like Halo 3, you'd probably like Haze, since they play and look more or less the same.
Ok, yeah. Metacritic disagrees with you, however.
Wonderful argument Mike. You couldn't have provided a better case for your cause. /sarcasm
Fanboy logic tactic #20394324: "When your argument is in doubt, use Metacritic. It holds no actual merit, but hey, neither does your original point." Do you even realize how many of those reviewers were either given moneyhats from MS, or fell into MONUMENTAL wave of hype? BTW, PirateThom is pretty much correct in his statement. I've played both Halo 3 and HAZE, and the way the game unfolds is pretty much similar, just with the difference being the scale of the events throughout the story. That said, Halo 3 is still better than HAZE, regardless of the actual score. That's not saying much, though...
lol, trying to trick people into thinking your positive so you'll get agrees / bubbles, and then throwing a stealth trolling opportunity into your comment. You aren't fooling anyone. Edit: And by your logic, Gears of War and Halo are the only two good shooters on the 360 because that's ALL I ever hear 360 owners talk about. Moreso, Gears of War, because everyone has this weird complex where they have to compare every feature in every game to Gears. Get real, dude.
GAMESPOT "too much variety" MS play the media game more than nintendo and sony and their fluff/advertising/viral budget is larger than some counties gdp. They use push tactics in the stores like GAMESTOP by offering incentives to sell their products. Are you living under a rock or has all the 'teh ps3 is dead' articles of last year been erased from your memory/hdd. Remember, they told us it was a faliure and if the ps3 was a faliure what is the 360?? The media is a tool, remember 'they' told us a plane crashed into the pentagon, the plane that disappeared on impact and left the crater of a missile.....tut tut 'what do you think Sony did with MGS4' you just owned urself. If thats the case then you believe MS done that for their titles lol. MGS was just the best game this gen, get over it. It had the most perfect scores EVER yet its metacrap score didnt reflect that because they are very 'selective' in their pool therefore its foundation is fudamentally flawed as fcuk.
I get a strange feeling that this game will be bigger than alot of people expect! At first it just seemed like a gimmick because it started out as a tech demo, but It seems like one of those games where people will see the commercial and say... "Holy sh*t! That's what the Ps3 is capable of?... I gotta get one!" Call me crazy, but I feel like that's what will happen!
So Mike...I suppose your Gears of War is a godsend, correct? Because...Gears of War 2 is more of the same. And Halo has been hyped so much that it's no wonder Microsoft wants to make another game out of it. I mean, you come here on a PS3 article and stealth troll, as if you're jealous or something. Oh, but that's right, you'll say PS3 owners do the same thing on 360 articles! Serously, if you're going to contribute, then contribute intelligently. If not, openzone is that way--> And Omega, you need to go as well because the minute I came back here, even you don't contribute to the articles intelligently. Anyway, I'm looking forward to this game.
Welcome to my ignore list Mike Bowden.
And the "Character development," and voice acting & story in Halo werren't generic? What about the macho-attitude of all the guys in Geow? Gimme a F*ckin break.
talking about innovation this one looks fantastic tbh
The game sounds BETTER and BETTER with each new article!!!!!
you can use any object as a weapon on the 360 version of Heavy Rain. anything, even pick up a piece of grass and slit NPC throats. yes, the 360 is THAT powerful. i would wait for the 360 port and forget about the PS3 version. :)
As far as I know this game is only coming to the Ps3! Unless something got changed along the way?
This isn't grand theft auto. And Sony is publishing it, so there's no 360 port.
hahaha.... i was only kidding AAACE5. Sony is the publisher. it's exclusive.
Guys, meep is only kidding around. >:P
Can't wait to test out that knife fight from the leipzig trailer
QTE's done right=Win
that doesn't mean there isn't much environment interaction - he says "only when the context makes it logical" but does that mean we'll only be able to interact with things when we're "told"? Does it mean that the story "bending" that's the key feature of this game will appear as black and white i.e. press this context sensitive button or not? It's a very interesting concept and I'm wondering how they can pull this game off, if they can, for me it'll be a GOTY 2009 contender.
He also said(few weeks ago) that in vid we saw, at one point you can choose to get chainsaw from garage to defend yourself and possibly kill that man.
i think the interaction with objects and such will be scripted in a sense. much like their previous game. i think it will be similar to that but added new functions or innovation. for me personally, if they could build up from what they did with Indigo Prophecy and added the innovation we've heard about it's already GotY for me, personally.
Q:.. A: It's things like that, that we gamers want, innovation funtionalties, revolutionary gameplays, amazing out-of-this-world graphics, original stories, this game is an example of that!...Can't wait for it!
You want innovation??? Buy a PS3!!!;) Heavy Rain: Objects can only be weapons "if the context makes it logical" Hmm... So like a 'xBox 360' would be a 'FIRE BOMB'!!! ;-D
Q: A: Sir Ken, what a statement! Of course I have a PS3...since day one in Europe!
i've read something about the game having check points too.. but the boss of the game doesn't want u to use it for the outcome of the story. read here.. http://www.ps3fanboy.com/20...
It is nice to see games that take a preference for story content, opposed to trying to satsify the ADD-prone multiplayer action gamers of this generation.
Sounds very limiting if you ask me. It sounds like there is little freedom outside what the dev's want you to do. They say you can explore this and that but the more they say the less you have control over what happens and ultimatley the outcome in the end. I'll keep my eye on it, but so far this game is slowly losing my interest.
No one is asking you so shut the fúck up.
grand theft auto. Don't even mention that the next gta they make, how about actually making it good, and not the same old sh*t again
How Heavy Rain relates to GTA IV? i don't understand :s
I dont care too much about the weapons part. I played games where characters didn't have weapons like Tetris, sports games, ect. I just don't like the fact that you have to use the x button to move. You cant go where you wanna go. Screw the graphics, Its all about gameplay, and this game seems like it restricts too much. I guess this game is a good tech demo, same as Force Unleashed, but we just want fun. I dont care how many pixels there are per character.
i like everything i've read and seen about heavy rain so far
Funny how 360 fanbois now says "screw the gfx, gameplay is everything blah blah blah". Oh wait I know why, your Gays Of Wars2 looks exactly like Gays of War1.
pooooooor droids and their limited movies
