That's a good question too :)

Okay, partly because the game is trying to mask who's the Origami Killer, so it keeps up the suspense.... The other reason is that

In the Perfect Crime trophy, you know why the Origami Killer has to go after Kramer...

Edit: Looked at all the endings on youtube, and I got maybe 4 of them on my last playthough.

Not a very good question, because you didn't put an effort to understand the drug problem that Jayden is facing....

From Wiki:

Norman Jayden is an FBI profiler sent to support the police force with their investigation into the Origami Killer. Jayden possesses a set of experimental augmented reality glasses called an "Added Reality Interface", or ARI. It allows him to rapidly investigate crime scenes and analyze evidence. He is also struggling with an addiction to the drug triptocaine. He is voiced by and modelled after Leon Ockenden.

The ending you saw, the tanks coming alive without the ARI glasses, it's a sign that Norman Jayden is consumed by the drug. He supposed to quit it and in the game, you're supposed to make him quit. Of course, if you choose not to, then Jayden will be hooked on it....

Dude, nice angle of looking at thing! Now that you put it that way, yep, I think you got a good point there, thanks for sharing the thought :)

be careful not to indulge in you-know-what too much ---- yep, it's pretty clever in using you-know-what....

What's the Move support like? Is it worth it?

EU store has the demo up with move support. Don't have Move yet so I don't know if/how it works.

To be honest, I didn't think the Move support was that great, the motions didn't quite seem to match what was happening on screen more often than not. It does work well though, it just needs a bit better execution / immersion

Since the news about the DLC chapters being cancelled, they've released some new behind the scenes videos on PSN recently and one is about content that was cut out of the game. They had a lot of experimental stuff that was going to be in the game along with sequences that would explain certain aspects of the story and the characters more clearly, like

I saw that last week and yeah, a lot of it would have explained WTF was going on with the blackouts and Madison. Quite honestly, I don't think it would have helped the story either way though.

I think that although this is an ok game, if they made another Heavy Rain, it would be a 1000x's better.

I understand the reasoning behind removing the "Mental Link" thing (it's kind of a stretch), but the reality of it is that they left in the "blackouts", and it screwed up the story.

It did for me. Moving your arms around brings you more into the experience than twiddling your thumbs.

im very serious. i can see why some people dont like the game its definelty not for everyone and the way you move the character around sucks but the game is awesome and ill probably go for the platinum. i finished on my first run through with over 50 percent of the trophies shouldnt take too long to get them all.

David Cage revealed at GDC that 72% of players finished Heavy Rain. Blew my mind. I am well aware that the industry average for game completion amongst players is 20-25%. So, 72% is ridiculously high. Heavy hitter Mass Effect 2's completion rate is 50%.

its not hard to believe that story was amazing. after you get past the first 3 chapters its hard to stop. if that game was a movie it would have dominated the box office.

I like the part where he mentioned their Game of the Year had only 50% completion and then listed Metacritic numbers to "prove" that it's the better game anyway.

Whoever designed the cover for the GH version needs to go back to design school. That extra blue banner & text underneath "Only On Playstation" could have easily been placed on the back of the case. As it stands, most of that woman's head is not visible and I find it hard to believe someone thought that was acceptable. o_O

Well someone designs a standard that is placed on any GH game... or any GH hits game that is move in this case. That is slapped on any game regardless and they are almost always ugly modifiers.

The original XBOX 360 ones stand out as being truly horrendous...

Luckily they largely fixed after a few years...

But yeah, GH games have terrible design generally speaking. :lol:

The completion rate doesn't surpise me at all. When you play a game, you are there for the core experience. With God of War, it's brutal melee combat. With Uncharted it's traversal and gun play. With Heavy Rain it's the story.

The player can easily pop in a normal game and get their fix and not really absorb themselves in the story and not care to finish it. With Heavy Rain, that's all you've got.

I'm still pissed they ditched the other DLC in favor of lame Move support.

Damn you Sony!

The game is brilliant and had me hooked for 1 week straight. I just could not put the controller down. With that being said, this game has zero replay value. I just dont want to spend the time making different decisions to see a different ending and I don't care about trophies. Youtube can give me all the endings without the hassle of having to play multiple times.
