Today upsblogit.com received absolutely reliable information about one of the most awaited PS3 games: Heavy Rain. We will list and explain some details that we've obtained and that will spread on the web as soon as possible.
Looked already like a Blockbuster Movie/Game Pre-order confirmed...
- 4 playable characters - Game length depends on how good you are at investigating - Different endings - Characters will eventually cross paths - Many different paths = Good replayability - No such thing as "game over", the plot will go on and you'll face the consequences later Welcome to last year, this is all old. Everyone should check this link on Friday. http://www.1up.com/do/minis...
It didn't say 4 playable characters did it? It said multi. Anyway if you mess up a bunch you get the bad ending and if you are really good you get to see the good ending like Indigo Prophecy.
4 playable characters http://www.1up.com/do/newsS... Sadly, silhouettes are all that have been shared thus far. Although top-left certainly looks like the playable women we've seen in the videos.
more or less everything thats been said before
Nothing really new to see here folks move along.
Dragons lair is back!!!!!
wow thats really awesome and interesting, im all in for an amazing SP experience.. im sick of FPSs and their mediocre 5 hour campaigns
to let the characters die and see how it plays out ;0
http://www.cgreviews.com/si... Heavy Rain Will Blow Your Mind "I'm really restricted to what I can say here, but I just wanted to get a couple chimes in about Heavy Rain. I've recently had the opportunity to get a glimpse of some new gameplay footage, and I was absolutely floored. Heavy Rain is so dynamic and alive, it'll blow your mind. No one I've spoken to can confirm if E3 2009 will see the same footage I saw yesterday, but I have done all I can to encourage them to show some of what they've shown me. We're talking physics, dynamic story-telling, insane graphical updates since E3 '08--it is an amazing game and a contender for Game of the Year." Yeah, sounds just like Dragons Lair.
Another exclusive for 2009 plus all the great multiplatform games coming out!
I didn't realise Heavy Rain was out in Fall 2009.
Yep, the only thing I'd say was in anyway "new" was different length games which is obvious as the game is about investigation and exploration. The more you do, the longer the game.
Yeah. You don't want to go around getting your characters killed. Pretty eager to learn about the story.
Interested to see how the length in this game plays out. 4 hours if you're bad 12+ if you're good? Not quite sure how this will work...sounds interesting tho. Can't wait for E3.
Like any other game, the more inquisitive you are the longer the game will be. I just imagine HR will take this to the extreme, as David Cage is all about the story, but you'll have to work though it yourself, he wont just hand it to you in a simple cut scene after each "level". You'll have to work for it.
what that means that the quicker you kill your 4 characters the quicker the story end
no realtime action or combat.....that we know of now still doesn't change this day 1 purchase
Too many to keep track of. >_< inFamous Heavy Rain Demon's Soul (NA Release) White Knight Chronicles Uncharted 2 God of War 3 Gran Turismo 5 Quantum Theory Final Fantasy Versus XIII And that's just off the top of my head.
I know man it's crazy could you imagine owning both consoles though like me? It's like double your list!
Well, I can kind of imagine. I have a gaming PC (though it's been collecting dust since I quit WoW last November), a PS3, and PS2. And I only just got my PS2 when it dropped to $99 brand new, so I'm still trying to catch up on the huge library of PS2 games I missed out on. :) I may also buy a Wii if Nintendo has even a decent E3 showing since I miss GCN games and am interested in some Wii games.
I think you forgot the biggest dopest groundbreaking breathtaking, faceslamming game of them all, you deserve a slap! >_< ...I hope you know that title by now
whoops, yeah, I forgot Trico Project. Definite day 1 as well. :)
I can't f*cking wait for this! Never seen games play like this one. It's like a interactive movie :D
A movie is scripted to offer a set story, HR isn't. But I get what your saying. It certainly dares to step outside of the box. Which is something I've been waiting for, for quite some time.
the rating this game is gonna get. based on the 20 min demo last year its like REvil(1996) but worse!. they hated on qte in ninja blade better hate them in this too. If not all major sites are confirmed to sell out on big name games i do think interactive games can be fun but that was in the 90s. full throttle, sam and max,monkey island and indiana jone fate of atlantis come to mind
"they hated on qte in ninja blade better hate them in this too. If not all major sites are confirmed to sell out on big name games " Slightly different, Ninja Blades QTEs you either get right or wrong and are predetermined. HRs arent. They're also shooting for completely different things. NB was just another hack and slash blah blah blah, HR is trying something new and from everything I've read, those who have seen it are extremely impressed. It's largely about story and emotion. Admittedly, there wont be enough guns, blood or boobs for the majority of gamers, which is fine, we all have different tastes. But to some this could be a real revelation.
You do realise how stupid the comparison is with Ninja blade being an action game (hence why it sux , since most of the action isnt even really from you , but too many qte)? QTE got no negative influence whatsoever on aventure/investigation games , since it actually add a bit of action in an otherwise "lifeless" kind of games And adventure games ar still working for it's set audience , otherwise games like syberia , Phoenix wright , another code , prof layton , sam and max , longest journey , and a few others wouldnt be around this very generation . Of course it mostly sells to a limited fanbase , but so what ? We are already oversatured with fps and action games . Such variety is welcome , and we dont have to enjoy all genre of gaming .
this game will have no action! so your either looking in cabinets or qte. ninja blade did have qte you could miss by the way. also this game isn't breaking new ground. its just like all the point and click adventures mentioned above. All i see is a pretty looking game. And i'm curious as to how their gonna rate it. Becuz every claims to hate qtes for whatever reason. also everything is predetermine here too. if you fail the qte you die or live depending on what was program to happen in that scene. they made a web of all possible outcomes
"its just like all the point and click adventures mentioned above. " Really, David Cage seems to disagree with you there, imagine he knows a little more than you... "Would you describe your games as an extension of the ‘point and click’ graphic adventure?" DC - "Certainly not..." http://ps3.nowgamer.com/new... Your inaccuracys just go to show you obviously havent been following the game and I'm also going to waste my time explaining those inaccuraces to you. Seems your bitter NB got bad scores, thats all.
yeah kid is not for you!..go play wii sports...
David Cage has never been totally clear about gameplay, leaving a lot of doubts to players and press. Heavy Rain was described to me as an adventure based on three main elements: Investigation, Conversation, Quick Time Events. What does it mean? It means that there won’t be active shootings/fightings, so that the gameplay will move on a simil-GraphicAdventure style, even if it will mantain different elements from real graphic adventures. Quick Time Events will be an important aspect of the game, but they can be considered only a part of a more complex gameplay. Investigation, Conversation, QTE. no active shooting/fighting sounds point and click to me. oh yea they have qtes
Well I just hope this does not play as the 7th guest or the kind (but all in realtime) I hate those games :P
[posted in wrong place]
It appears to be turning out more like a movie than a game. INTERESTING AND INNOVATIVE, yes, but I dont know if im that into it. Im pretty sure this is a rent B4 buy type of this for me
Quick time events. ((X)) ((O)) ((<))
i dont see the hate for QTE...i bet it was just some xbot reviewer trying to find a reason to hate a sony game and all he could find was QTE and xbots just kinda followed it. thats my theory anyways. PS im not directing that at you shadowman im just simply saying that i dont see the hate for them PPS what the hell is a ((<)) left D-pad?
you tell me shadow man. eve play a game called indigo prophecy? was that game difficult or easy? ooops, sorry i forgot your a child. you dont even know what indigo prophecy is. maybe you can youtube it and say you played it. comeback in 45 minutes and explain.
God of war has quick time event and I enjoy it.
But no matter how far or how intricate the developers take it, it certainly sounds ambitious. Indigo Prophecy is one of the PS2's hidden gems, so hopefully Heavy Rain will stack up.
these aren't "first details" blogs need to stop lying like this for hits, it's so annoying
Whatever man, i rather have them copy and paste old news pretending like they got the scoop on a brand new ps3 exclusive than keep themselves busy talking about console sales and games sales and forcing a opinion that developers on playstation are sad and angry. still, teh news is all sony and has been since late 2008.
it more detail and better than lame alan wake
im so dissapointed in you. all you can come up with is god of war? God of war QTE is nothing compared to the QTE in indigo prophecy. In indigo prophecy, the QTE can go as long as a parapa the rappa song. it gets even more complicated because you get emotional and you start to care unlike in god of war where the QTE is to get that extra ooomph in your kill. dam man, if you are young, really, than i understand. indigo prophecy is a experience. when parrapa the rappa came out QTE was the craze. God of war used it and it was quite simple and mostly for casuals to get in the game but in indigo prophecy, this beast was hardcore and you know how hardcore I am.
Sounds amazing, no doubt that it will offer an unique experience. Alan What? :)
*Alan Wath? :)* -- its Alan War ;D
"First details"? Despite there being multiple trailers, info and even a demo walkthrough.
the source talks about New Details, and not First Details
one of my most anticipated games if not the most anticipated one
My only concern with this game is that it will be one QTE after another. I'm hoping that this will be sort of like a next gen Lighthouse, but without the fantasy stuff. I'm hoping that most of the gameplay will be puzzles and exploration. I don't need weapons or anything, Lighthouse was crazy awesome, and I haven't seen a game with similar gameplay since Lighthouse.
its kinda funny how it took 3d realms 13 years to come up with absolutely nothing for duke nukem forever, a mindless fps, but david cage managed to help make a game that looks to be a whole new genre of its own.
After MGS4 , Heavy Rain....Looks like Ps3 is the Real Blu Ray player...it ha snot been made to play games for sure...lol
Gee Counter strike How come all your posts end up bashing the Ps3?
the middle paragraph with the Inverted-lenght sounds awesome why cant more games do this wont have as much people monaing about game lengths as much day one buy for me cant wait
