So, I stayed up until 5AM last night playing Heavy Rain until I finished it. I finished with 2 of four heroes standing (Madison is surprisingly flammable). I'm not sure what I think about it, to be perfectly honest. I give the game a lot of credit for trying something new, and Sony a load of credit for taking a chance on it financially (though reports say it's performed quite well). I think the thing I look forward to most having finished the game is going back through the spoiler-filled media I intentionally skipped when it was freshly released, to see what others thought about it. (By the way... Reverend Anthony, that was kinda a dick move revealing the killer's identity in your alt-text in that last article. Just my opinion, of course.) I let one of my friends borrow the PS3 over the weekend so he could play it too; I'm quite interested to discuss it with him, see how our stories diverged, what we did differently. In that area at least, the game is a rousing success.
Just as an aside, my brother's name is Shaun. Spelled the same exact way. I think he'd hate this game.
For those wondering where Saturday and Sunday's recaps went, they'll be along shortly if they're not up already. Don't forget to find this week's Simpsons quote. Let's get to it.
