    Heavy Rain

    Although i have not personally hunted it down to witness myself, It is said that one of the Devs posted up on the EU PS forums that they will be releasing a PSN demo for this game on Feb 11th. I have high hopes for this game, hopefully the demo will not disappoint

    HEAVY RAIN

    Hey all,

    You want to try your hands at heavy rain early (before feb 11th). Go here and register http://www.precinct52.com/case1117_briefing then work the evidence. Hint here is what you want to submit.

    The four pieces of evidence are:

    Short cigarette (117b)
    Origami bird
    Coffee shop C (it says "diner")
    117h (tyre tracks).

    Then download code

    Re: Heavy Rain

    figured out my problem. It seems that while some codes are going out just fine, others (like mine) are actually European codes. Why they would give us EU codes when it clearly asks you your country when you sign up, i do not know. The solution is, if you get that same error i got, to make a fake PSN account with a EU address. Just google London addresses and give them the address of a hotel or something and you'll be good, so long as it is a valid address. I think the important part is getting a proper city, province, and postal code.

    Re: Heavy Rain

    Alright it finally worked for me. I tried about 30 times yesterday and got nothing. Thanks for the info I have been wanting to check out this game since I first heard about it.

    Re: Heavy Rain

    I just finished up the demo and let me say, this game is going to be awesome. It was like walking through a good crime thriller movie or book. The actual walking control is a bit clunky and will take some getting used to but the rest is very unique and cleverly executed. I've played games that use reaction commands before but the way they implement them in the game make it feel really seamless instead of obtrusive like they normally do. Plus you get to beat up a douche bag, how cool is that?

    This game is enough to spark anyone's interest in wanting to become a crime scene investigator just like that first episode you ever saw of CSI did

    Re: Heavy Rain

    Just finished the Demo the other day too. Lookin forward to the full game. I let my fiancee' give it a try and she's not really a gamer and she liked it. Controls were not too intimidating for her and she really liked how the story and look of the game was. I just sat back and watched her and I found just watching someone play it just as good as playing it.

    Heavy Rain

    I noticed the Heavy Rain Demo while I was looking around at The Playstation Store this morning. I do believe this will be a great game.

    Re: Heavy Rain Demo

    I haven't downloaded it cuz it'd be like watching 20 minutes of a movie before it comes out. I'd like to try the new gamplay mechanic that this game introduces.

    Re: Heavy Rain Demo

    I downloaded this and played through it today. The games graphic I thought were pretty good. Still not sure if I want to purchase this game though. I might be better off just renting this one.

    Re: Heavy Rain Demo

    if you want TLOG, the demo is split into 3 parts and you can choose to only play one section. You can just play the first part, which is the tutorial/introduction, where it teaches you how the gameplay works while walking down an alley. one you get to the other side it ends and goes back to the title screen. That would give you the chance to try out the mechanics without dipping into the story aspect

    Re: Heavy Rain

    So who got this game so far? I saw FloatOn playing it late lastnight, anyone else?

    here is an interesting article from gamepro titled why you shouldn't play heavy rain more than once

    at first i thought it was going to be some whining article about how the reviewer just didn't like it but after reading i completely understand what they mean and i would probably be the same way. Just give it a read and you'll see what i mean

    Re: Heavy Rain

    hey TLOG or any JC, can you merge these two heavy rain threads and then delete this post? sorry, i'm a neat freak lol

    and i believe spoiler buttons are possible, i saw them in a list of phpBB 3 mods somewhere, but i think smoke would have to install them first, unless he already did and was being sneaky sneaky

    This should be merged/ FYI there's a delay in the distribution of the Heavy Rain episode 1 codes if you have that bonus from GS or Amazon.

    Re: Heavy Rain

    This game rocked!! I had a blast playing it. It started off slow at first then the story line built up. Almost everything is interactive. You could make your coffee or go to the refrigerator and to drink some orange juice. You play as the women and get to take a shower with her, lol. The story line was very intense and it really got me involved and wanting to know who the killer was. You must be extremely careful with your actions during the game not to change the outcome of the story. I lost one of my characters in a fatal accident along the way :cry: . I accidentally shot and killed a possible origami suspect, I just hit the first button I saw pop up and it was the trigger button.

    There are not a lot of games that can keep my wife's interests but this game did it. I beat it after playing almost 9 hours straight. Kinda tempted to go back and see how things would change if I did things differently.
