Heavy Rain screens just the kind of downpour I was hoping for

Heavy Rain is, without a doubt, exactly the type of game that gets me all hot and bothered — it deviates from the averagely successful modern game completely, choosing to strongly favor story over gameplay. A lot of gamers will think it’s the most uninteresting thing ever and complain that “playing a movie” sounds stupid, but since gamers complain about everything, you shouldn’t take those comments to heart too much.

If you’ve already seen video for the demo shown at Leipzig, you will recognize these stills, which were taken from that very demo. Now, you can save them from our gallery and drool over all their beautiful digital glory. Yum!
