What does a Square Enix boss play when he's not getting pounded by enemy encounters on a straight, narrow pathway that you can't back out of? Heavy Rain, apparently. According to Famitsu magazine, Yoichi Wada has been playing the PS3 exclusive lately, and it seems like he's digging it.
He told Famitsu, "It would be good if they made more games like Heavy Rain."
I'm sure he likes it. I liked it. And I like most of Square Enix's games. I just can't shake the mental image of Wada really, really digging Madison's strip scenes. Ugh.
