Default Heavy Rain: 20 minutes of video!!

Another upcoming ps3 heavy hitter. This game looks amazing in the graphics department and seems to be heavy on the story-side as well.

Saw that video a few days ago. For anyone that's played David Cage's previous title, that thing is a dead ringer for Indigo Prophecy on graphical steroids. The interface, style and handling is EXACTLY like his last title only with SixAxis features juked in as well.

I'm pretty stoked for this one. Aside fromm the weird turn towards the end, IP was a great title.

Does this have a release date yet?

Nothing beyond a "late 2009," so take that with a grain of salt as it wouldn't surprise me at all if a delay were announced.

I'm interested in this title, but also kind of scared because I really loved the opening of Indigo Prophecy, but the last 1/4 just about ruined all the good will I'd built up for the game previously. That ending was just a random tangent to me, it felt like a whole other story was suddenly being told and made me cautious about Cage and his work thereafter. At least, however, he actually admitted on record that he feels he screwed up the ending of the game, and claims that Lessons Have Been Learned. So I'm hoping. I really need a new adventure game to play, I haven't played a decent one since The Longest Journey: Dreamfall.

Agree. The ending I experienced for IP (which is apparently one of several) was pure crap.

I'll wait to see more before I get too excited, but I'm thinking that this is going to be one of THE hottest must-haves in '09 (should it not be delayed to 2010).

Looks like a mixture of game genres from rpg, to fps, to sandbox - gta style

I don't think a whole lot of people are going to buy this...but it sure makes for a nice showcase to friends.

My thoughts exactly. I just don't see this having a broad commercial appeal. I'd like to see more of it and hear some feedback from an actual hands on before I get excited for this.

It sure is pretty though!

I went to Best Buy (168th and Dodge) over lunch to pick it up, but they refused to match the furniture mart's $10 gift card deal. Out of principle I put the game back and walked out thinking to myself that I would wait and get it this weekend at the Mart.

However, upon further review I'm probably going back tonight to pick it up at the same best buy. I just can't wait
