Heavy Rain
Post By Keysha-chan. 03/03/10, 02:51 am

So, like, seriously? Where IS the love for this game?

Who's playing? Have you finished/replayed? What endings/outcomes did you get?

Naturally, these will have to go under spoiler tags, but yeah! XD

Josh finished his game a few days back with Gemma and myself directing him.

Spoiler:

I think Ethan has to be, hands down, one of the video game characters I've ever had such a fond connection to. He doesn't have to be bad-boy-awesome or run about guns blazing or throwing out one-liners. He's simply a broken man trying to save his son.

;_; this game is amazing.

This game sounds so cool. ;o; The need for a PS3 seems to grow greater and greater... Is it scary at all?

^THIS. D8

Jeeess. 8D If (when we finally get a PS3) you're too scared to play it, how about you buy it, I play it, and you watch? 8D

@ Jess and Admin - YES! Like I told Jess, best not to have your Mum around during SOME cutscenes, it's not just language but...other things. However the narrative is REALLY well done.

I...I actually think I'm LIKING the idea of quicktime events. At least they WORK for this game! :3

@Tammy - DDDDOOOOo EEEEEETTTTTT!!!!

@Abby - Buy it offa Josh! Very Happy

@Saiyajin - Can't wait till I hear your views on it! :3

lol, I want to play it, but I'll have to wait for school holidays so that I'm home alone-- I would /not/ want my mother to see some of those Madison scenes. Ugh.

Or the Lizard trial. I watched a Youtube video of it and I have a feeling it would squick out my parents. =_=;;

ANYWAY Heavy Rain looks totally awesome. Muahahaha~ I shall rent it out some time and enjoy failing epically at some of the QTEs. 8D

I played it at a friends for a few minutes before I was promptly told, 'get your hands off my game before I kill you.' Needless to say, I let go. She really would do it. But up until then I enjoyed it.

Haha, thought I can understand - since gameplay comes down to YOUR choices it sucks if someone else makes it for you, since there are some moments where one choice can fully change the endings you get.

@ Pyro - Oh man the lizard trial is one of my faves! Gory...don't use the saw if you've got a weak stomach! XD

Haven't actually read the thread to avoid unintentional spoilers, but having only really heard the details of this game in the past couple of days I am not Very interested, and am just checking in to say that I intend to acquire is just as soon as I can find the money. Which Will Not Be Soon.

Finished my 4th play through. Seen all endings except the perfect crime one, which i believe is everyone is killed by you know who, and he escapes the cops.

It's bizarre but it's the only game in existence that I have played through over 3 times and never enjoyed any less. This game has a lasting appeal that I find unshakable.

Currently on my first play through. And it's AMAZING. I love it so much. My only problem is that sometimes the characters walk too slowly... I mean come on, you're trying to stop a murderer.

Yup. and you get a Trophy for it too (gold, I think) however you have to have them killed in a certain scene - it can't be one of the (many) ways that they can die. XD Only one way for each of them - plus you have to also clear all the fingerprints in the clock store, ect.

Just done my 6th playthrough now. I managed to find time to keep trying to 100% it despite FFXIII. I just find Heavy Rain so irresistable sitting there in it's rain-effect slip case looking at me whenever I'm not playing it.
I now have every trophy except seen all endings but I don't know what one(s) I haven't seen and refuse to use a walkthrough on this masterpiece.

*revives*
Hopefully more people have played it now y/y? Thoughts? What was your ending??

This has to be the best game I have ever played. Never have I experienced a game to be so intense, and (some scenes) so heart-wrenching. I dont think I've ever been so emotionally attached to the characters and completely terrified that my choices could have a chance resulting in their death.

I loved all 4 main characters and most of the sides - except Blake grrr, and it was also nice to have strong female characters as well for a change.

The story, the characters, the setting, the music = brilliant!

NOT TO MENTION THE TWISTS. OMG.
Especially, (spoiler HUGE spoiler)
Spoiler:

And ARI. I WANT.
Wow. Just wow.

My ending:
Spoiler:

Iím watching my brother play it, and I cannot believe the differences o_O Ö it varies from a few sentences to full scenes and well some actions of course affect the ending. Its like watching a similar movie itís the same but not the same!

What did you guys do for:
Spoiler:

I rarely do this but I actually have high hopes for this prospected movie. I just want more heavy rain lol. I donít know if the movie will work or not. It better not disappoint if it is made. :<

p.s for those that want to play it but havenít yet, be careful, this is a game you do not want spoiled, and it very easily is.

Part of me wants to either cosplay Ethan at an Armageddon and run around the con screaming out "SHAUN!" Possibly with people nearby holding up the button commands. or Jayden and sit somewhere with shades on making random hand movements as if I'm using ARI.

But enough about that. I decided to play this game with Meghan when she came down to visit last school holidays as my flatmates had the game and I had watched them play. Because I thought Meghan would enjoy the game but at the same time I also wanted to play, I followed what my flatmates did and we designated 2 of the characters between each other. Meghan played as Madison & Jayden while I played as Ethan & Scott. Oddly enough, the same combination my flatmates did.

I loved the game to bits. It was incredibly immersive and the game really knew how to get to you. I do have a couple of gripes about it though.

Spoiler:

As for ending of the game and stuff I did:
