Heavy Rain couldn't decide whether it was a film or a game and ended up being neither. Ask yourself how you think it would have reviewed as a film or TV series, and then ask yourself if the gameplay was in any way fun or added to the experience.

I'm convinced it sold on novelty value (a choose-your-own film is a strong sell) and on virtue of being a tech demo.

Beyond (the game I've played the most of) was pretty awful. It just doubled down on Heavy Rain's design flaws and was a convoluted mess of a story.

It's not even that the genre's not for me. There is a stark contrast with Telltale's The Walking Dead, which I found incredibly affecting and compelling. I still think the QTEs in TWD are pretty pointless, but it was the dialogue choices and "big decision" points that made TWD so good. They are completely lacking from Heavy Rain and Beyond, from all I've played and seen. I just can't see the appeal in the trial-and-error faux puzzle gameplay or the low budget netflix unedited writing.

Heavy Rain was worth it for the Jayden scenes in the market and car yard where you could make him a complete bumbling idiot.

This is also worth watching:



It's an attempt to do the same thing and fail all the prompts in Two Souls. Spoiler, if you do absolutely nothing the game plays itself and moves on anyway.

I'll give it a try.

Does anybody have any idea what time will it be available tomorrow?

I actually have zero interest in this game, if the mods could hand it over to someone else that would be great.

I doubt David Cage can again reach the dizzying heights of quality not seen since Omikron.

It begins...

Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human developer Quantic Dream came under fire earlier this year over allegations of workplace sexism, homophobia, and inappropriate behavior. Today, Kotaku reported that in response the studio has filed lawsuits against two of the three French outlets who reported on those conditions.

Never forget:

Cage twice told Le Monde that, despite having a workforce that is reportedly 83 percent male, Quantic Dream “is not a rugby locker room.” He was sitting in front of a painting the newspaper described as “a penis with farting testicles” at the time.

Yeah, looking forward to this going to gooseberry fool, especially since Sony were telling them it's probably not the best idea.

Hopefully Beyond was just a blip, Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain were both good games.

Just played it through to the end twice.

- It's strawberry floating gorgeous
- It's pretty much Heavy Rain HD, which...isn't great.
- It's terribly, terribly written.

The demo is the hostage scene we saw in early videos and, although it's very pretty it's utterly hollow. The first half is spent gathering evidence which means walking around a single room on a treasure hunt, pressing or holding buttons where needed. The second is the negotiation stage where you have more or fewer options based on your scavenger hunt.

The first half is dull, if incredibly slick and polished, but it's the second section that really shows the game's potential flaws. The characters are cliched and boring, and the dialogue is screamingly awful. It's cliche after cliche, "I wanna(sic) car!" "Please, I'm begging you!" etc etc and my first ending wrapped up with the perp literally stating "I trust you."

Image


Even with this one scene it's extremely apparent that Cage simply doesn't possess the nuance or talent to deal with the sort of themes he's playing with. It wasn't terrible to play, and the graphics really are something, but I am not dissuaded from the high possibility this is going to be the equivalent of Michael Bay remaking 12 Years a Slave.
