August 8, 2008

For fuck’s sake people… you need to learn how to use an elevator, and I’m gonna teach you with a knife if I need to.

Heavy Rain

August 6, 2008

This is something I’ve been very interested in ever since the original tech demo from like… 2006.  The pic above is one of the latest screen shots released, but one thing that still hasn’t been confirmed… is if this is a game or not.  The company making it is Quantic Dream, they made an awesome and extremely overlooked game on the Xbox called Indigo Prophecy (Fahrenheit if you are in the EU.)  It was an amazing experience, like an interactive movie.  Keeping an eye on this for sure.  So maybe there are 3 games I’ve been looking forward to for my PS3… MGS4 which was amazing, Heavy Rain, and the 3rd Ico game.
