Heavy Rain Drops Today

Heavy Rain comes out today.  Normally I never run to the store a grab a game on the first day that it comes out, and never do I even bother to reserve one.  It doesn’t much sense to do that anymore, places like Best Buy and Target aren’t going to run out of copies.  However, I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while, and I plan to grab it on the first free moment that I have today.  If you haven’t seen some of the footage of the game that has come out I suggest you take a gander.  There’s even one scene that will make you squirm, especially if you’re a parent.

While the characters at time appear stiff and forced on the screen, I’m hoping that the game play and story are able to rise above it.  So for the next few days I plan to shove myself into a deep, dark hole with a PS3 and a copy of the game.

I wasn't a believer in this one for the longest time. Then I played the demo and I was truly impressed by how visceral a simple context sensitive scuffle was. I managed to snag it today for cheap, so I'll dig into it a bit.
