Quantic Dream its single handingly reviving the adventure gaming!

You watched the basic intro buddy? It's quite nice and moody - http://www.neowin.ne...t__p__592187404 (Download the high quality HD intro).

Still linking to to other topic to avoid spoilers in here, even although the intro contains none.

Can we get a game based around Carrie Prejean making home movies?

Unlike a certain other console, you can easily upgrade to a bigger drive...

Or delete some porn. :laugh:

I actually can upgrade easier on the other console, but costs me more :(

I can't delete porn I don't have on it. Then again, I would have porn on it if you could password protect it!

Did I just say that out loud? blush.gif

HMV ?10 gift voucher, so I'm hoping they get special edition in-store which means I can get it for ?29.99. I'm gonna phone them up soon and ask if its definitely coming in-store or is web only.

Aha. Let me know if they do, I happen to be in the UK atm (Hillington East outside Glasgow, as a matter of fact :p) and I might just buy it once my replacement debit card arrives :D

£42.99 (web price) isn't bad though, especially considering Special editions are usually 20 more anyway xD

This might be my first PS3 game purchase since back when KZ2 was released.

Good scores in Famitsu

- One play is about 10 hours. If you want to finish all the game' scenarios it's 30 hours.

- Innovative control and fabulous story

- You can really immerse your emotion, especially if you have kids.

- Lots of branching in the story

- Top notch atmosphere

- Keeps you want to continue playing

- You can also sense fear

The game has no "game over"

Nice time of post AB ;)

Finishing the game and seeing each different scenario is going to be interesting. I'm going to have to play it through and try and remember which options I selected so I can go back and choose differently.

Both me and the wife are going to play this. On the demo we did things differently, the wife didn't know what I pressed throughout as I played it when she was still at work :p So from that aspect the 2 of us will have a different gaming experience which will be cool.

From what I recall there's 20 endings or something, so you and the wife should have secluded playthroughs then see how both your stories end.

Then retry again when you have more time.

I know I'm at least doing an everyone dies and everyone lives, but the thing is people can die at different times so even if I do an everyone dies at some point, there will be an everyone dies alternative ending(s) as well.

Just so multipathed :p

Cage recommended you play it once and once only, but obviously he meant that from a however it ends first time is your personal story. Any other playthrough is you purposely altering decisions just to see the outcomes - First time through you know nothing so your choices come and go as you get them.

And that excites me about the game, we can both have alternate endings.

Played the demo on my friends ps3. Wasn't overly impressed. The first scene was good but I hated the one with the fbi dude.

Anyone else find the voice acting terrible?

Only annoying thing about that is I am the sort of person who wants to see every ending! :laugh:

Played the demo and enjoyed it, however brief it was. The only thing I found annoying was that at the crime scene, two of the clues (next to the train tracks) didn't show up until I walked around for ~ 10 mins. There isn't anyway to run so I would hope that it wasn't waiting for me to cover the entire lot in order to show me those clues. Still not sure if there may have been more there.

Also, reading the IGN preview, they mentioned that the reason they are using the R2 button for movement is to leverage the analogue speed control. Why not just use the analogue left stick for this? Only real issue I had was trying to move at angles other than 90deg.

Can't wait for the game to drop, gonna play it once, then trade it in to help pay for GoW3.

I think that is intentional. That is how crime scenes work in real life.
