IGN GC 2009: Heavy Rain: Living as Ethan Mars Preview

IGN writes: "One of the most brilliant things about Heavy Rain is the game's insistence that you live out the lives of its characters. This is not an intense, dramatic game at every passing moment -- Quantic Dream's breath-taking project is much more than that. Heavy Rain puts you in the shoes of its cast and let's you live every moment of it... even the moments in-between.

Here at Gamescom 2009, located in the heart of Cologne, writer and director of Heavy Rain, David Cage, revealed the final two characters in the main cast of four: Detective Scott Shelby and Ethan Mars. I wrote about my introduction to Detective Shelby earlier in the show, but I knew little about Ethan besides what Cage mentioned during Sony's press conference. I had the opportunity to sit down with Cage as he walked me through the opening moments of the game, which feature Ethan Mars, two years after a terrible tragedy strikes his family."

The story is too old to be commented.

Sir, surely you jest; It is not "Heavy Rain FTW". It is "Heavy Rain FTMFWB!"

Please do not let it happen again.

Also there is a badass video of the whole Hassan's Shop here:

I apologize for the pimping, I'm just trying to get as many people to see it as posible.

I expected nothing else from a PS3 exclusive.

Every PS3 game has come to rival hollywood production. 360 games on the other hand...Its clear that the 360 is maxed out.
