With recent news about Heavy Rain’s Chronicles DLC taking the back seat in order to make the game compatible with PlayStation Move, it is clear that Heavy Rain’s chance for expansion or re-playability has gone out the window.
replayability out the window? i think most people with the game and move will give it a shot.
I for one haven't platinumed it yet, so this is welcomed. I am excited to start the PERFECT CRIME path to sinister victory... MUHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Too little too late? The way I see it, Move will sell more copies of Heavy Rain.
I have yet to play Heavy Rain so I will pick it up to go with Move the day it's released. Sometimes being late to the party has it's benefits.
Took the longest time to get, but ultimately the most satisfying ending...actually...hmm.
I beat it once, that was enough for me. I liked it but it's a game that's really only meant to be played once, David Cage said it himself. BTW, you shouldn't play a game just for the trophies, that's stupid, just sayin'. Edit: at least tell me why you disagreed with me! fucking dumbass's Edit 2: NecrumSlavery, that's a good point and I understand what you mean about your feelings for your son, but I see it as a story, as a real story. Once you make choices you can't take them back, even if they get a loved one killed. To me, that's the beauty of it, and it's why I won't play it again.
But the PERFECT CRIME is like a whole new game dude. And David Cage said he wants you out of your comfort zone with Heavy Rain, and that's what this is. Playing through again and making choices you didn't make the first time. I've played through heavy rain a few times, and I still can't beat my son in the sword fight. I mean I can, physically but I always let him win. I'm a dad and would never try to one-up my own child. This game truly is played through your emotions and instincts. So take a second go through. And with PS Eye full motion body support, you can strip 1:1 precision. When you're naked in your living room, you will feel as dirty and degraded as Madison did....that's a joke.
I'm buying PS Move specifically for two reasons. Sorcery, and Heavy Rain Support. It's going to be great playing through the game for a fourth time. It's awesome.
you know, sorcery did look really cool. I am looking forward to LBP2, Socom, Killzone, GT5 and Heavy Rain move support. Not to mention RE5 and Dead Space Extraction, that is a pretty good amount of core games if you ask me.
that list damn near trumped every motion line for core gamers anyway......GT5 has move support? thought it was only pseye head tracking.
I saw the potential of both Move and Heavy Rain, and decided to buy the game with Move...hoping it will be announced. Still DLC would be cool, but Move means more money than a piece of DLC.
Once I beat it I didn't want to play it again, but then I realized that there are different endings once I let a family member play it, so I would be willing to play it once move comes out, just as long as I don't have to buy another version of the game (at E3 they kept saying move edition which makes me think you have to buy a new version of Heavy Rain, and the only way I'm doing that is if gamestop offers a trade in deal towards it). I also think this should be a game bundled with Move to help both sell more. Heavy Rain would be 6 months old, so very few people are still buying it so why not push more sells this way. Heavy Rain & Move controller $60 Sports Champ. & Move controller $60 Sly Collection & Move Controller $60 Old Time Crisis game & Move Controller $60 Eye Pet & Move Controller $60 The Fights Lights Out & Move Controller $60 Kung Fu Rider & Move Controller $60 And games that require move should all come with a move controller. This would help move, Move off store shelves.
I know I'll give it a shot after my hard drive with my game save for this on it failed. Having to start over is going to be a bummer. I know I'll replay the game, but as to whether or not I will get and utilize move remains to be seen.
Heavy Rain data can't be transfered anyway. Not that it needs to be. It's worth another go anyday.
If you do a full system backup then all game saves can be restored, even those that are locked and can't normally be backed up. I usually do a weekly backup, though I've yet to have a drive failure
Honestly what is with people and replayability? People treat games as if they're disposable these days. If you like a game enough, surely replayability isn't an issue, you just play through it again. It doesn't just have to have online multiplayer to have replayability. The game has sold well and is firmly considered a Playstation classic. With or without Move compatibility, Heavy Rain will always be a good game, and I'm sure people will want to give it a try with the new control scheme. I know I will.
I have to agree. Does no one replay a game for FUN any more? I replayed SotN over 20 times. No Trophies, no achievements, just a fun game that I enjoyed doing over and over.
Exactly, I played through mgs4 3 times, who cares about trophies? If a game is fun a game is fun, trophies don't make it any better.
same here, i beat each god of war 2 times and looking forward to another playthrough on gow 3. symphony of the night is one of my all time favortie games. and can you believe they got it on the ps store for 10 bucks! bought it the first day i had my ps3. i have some friends who bought god of war 3 once, loved it, then traded it in the next day. sad if you ask me.
I'll be replaying it with the move:):)
How is it too late if Move hasn't even been released yet. It's not like Move came out a year ago and they're barely releasing a patch.
I have yet to pick Heavy Rain up but I'm glad it did great in sales without me! I'm hoping to get it for Christmas because I have to buy GT5 and Move before then.
I know I'll will be getting Heavy Rain once PS Move comes out. It can only increase the sales of both PS Move and Heavy Rain, which is good for everyone.
I was going to pick it up soon, but imma wait until move, that way i can be even more immersed
i want to play this game one more time with the Move
Never played Heavy Rain yet. If PS Move integrate well in Heavy Rain, i might buy it
Heavy Rain was made for the Playstation Move, that much is clear. Move would get rid of any quirks in the control scheme. It was awkward on the Sixaxis because the Sixaxis is for more...hardcore games that require loads of button-mashing and more standard control schemes. I read somewhere that the two of them were supposed to be released simultaneously. Then again, I also read that RE5: Alternate Edition was supposed to be released with the PS Move. I'm really looking forward to this. The game is fun in itself, but there's only so much of that control scheme that one can handle :S
Im going to be really sad if they don't impliment more to the gameplay cause of Move... I want more things in the environment accessable to me... rather than the scripted/pre-selected items like for instance in Mars's home... PS = and why is it that half the time you can use a bathroom in Heavy Rain there isn't a working sink after?... or the characters don't use soap?... nasty!!! lmao... I noticed that while playing!
I will play this with move!!!!! But why can't there be more dlc? Is this an issue? Does anybody have any scoobie snacks? Will the kids in the mystery machine solve the case?
With the extensive use of QTE and all of the motion-based interaction this game will certainly be easier to play with Move. If they can make the control scheme for basic walking better with Move it will be a great improvement. I still don't understand why they implemented character movement the way that they did. Most people I know are able to walk backwards. It isn't too bad once you get used to it, though. As far as the game goes, it has great atmosphere and quite a bit of character depth. Shawn was an idiot, though.
Heavy Rain is one of those games i will never sell and i'm looking forward to playing it with Move.
