I simply don't agree with you on that point... I'm pretty sure this game has had plenty of hype since last year, well before there was any indication of nudity.

I'm sure this won't go well though. Of course, if this was in a movie, it would be no big deal but Fox News is going to have a field day with this when they get wind of it.


Yup.

Movie nudity = for adults so no problem
Game nudity = obviously all games are for children so it's an issue

I really hate the way some people believe that like video games are just toys and they're ALL for children. That's the reason why nudity in a game gets put under the microscope and is viewed so harshly. It's 2009 and some still act like it's 1986 and the Nintendo was just released. They don't realize that games have evolved past that.

This is the first I've ever heard of the nudity. I actually think it's going to be a good part of the story. Yeah, she's getting naked but the dude gets it in the end and not in a good way.

It looks amazing, but nothing close to photorealism.


I was actually insinuating that it looks a bit crap.

Anyone else think the song in the "For Love" trailer sounds a little too influenced by Lux Aeterna? :P

I actually got to play the game at TGS last weekend so I'll chime in with some info.

I had no idea what to expect going into the game, as I haven't really been following news about it too closely. So I was a bit put off at first because the game felt like a QTE/on-rails movie. BUT, it was an AMAZING QTE/on-rails movie! :lol:

The character is controlled by holding R2 and using the left analog stick to control the direction of his(/her) head and therefore his(/her) direction. There are also several on-screen prompts (which I'll abbreviate as OSP from here onward) that pop-up (several of which are QTE's) which require you to press a button or move the right analog stick in a certain direction.

The demo was completely in Japanese and the booth girl kept nagging me so I couldn't catch EVERYTHING being said/happening, but I got the gist of it.
Spoiler tags, for those who don't want to know anything about the story:

Spoiler


The demo did a great job of building suspense and has increased my interest in this game 100-fold!
I really like how failing 1 QTE doesn't stop the action and I'm looking forward to experiencing the full story next Spring! :D

Don't watch it if you don't want potental scene spoilers, but-

I think this is the same video you can get off the JPN PSN now (is it up in the US yet too?) .

Shows off a few scenes from the game. Can't get to the end but says there might be a hint about the release at the end.

This link has a video that fully shows two scenes and has him explaining about the game. It also at the end talks about why the hold up about the release date and that they will announce one soon.

How much is it saying the price is in your gold box, Serpentor? I can't seem to get any games into my GB these days. Maybe I've been buying too much Blu-ray movies. :D

How do ya'll feel about the region editing they mentioned in the presentation? I mean we knew it was bound to happen but I still want every ounce of this I can get without censorship. I hope the US release is handled well at least.

Sounds like a good idea. I might just do the same.

That was the more complete version when Fahrenheit/indigo prophecy came out right? Might be the way to go here again, though should be easier to do this time around.

Added link to the ign blog, looks like they have been updating every Wednesday with different aspects of what they are doing. Might have mentioned it before, but haven't kept up with it till now.

Can't remember specifics, but I saw on a developer's twitter that he was playing Heavy Rain and enjoying it very much.. this means it might actually make the February release date! So excited.. I've been hyped since the teaser trailer at E3 05 or E3 06..

The game keeps popping up on my Amazon Golden Box -- I'll try to add it to an existing order w/ my ECA code next time it happens.

Saw some potential new info on the release date:

Famitsu is reporting a February 18th release in Japan, which means a North American release date will surely be around the same time, too. Though Sony America hasn't formally announced a date, it's been assumed it'll be in the opening months of 2010. Hopefully, this means we'll also have a February release date to coincide with the Japanese release.


And also to just mention again a demo is/was being worked on.

Don't know why they just don't release the PAX demo. The scene in the convenience store is about 5-10 minutes in length and is perfect for a demo.

Edit: You can listen to episode 69 of my podcast for my impressions of the game from the PAX demo. I gave it my Game of the Show Award.

I liked Indigo Prophecy quite a bit. So, I'm definitely interested in this game. The trailers and the nude scene are a little uncanny valley for me, though.

I do like nudity in my gameage. Like in that San Andreas game where you had to hack it with Action Replay. The point is, video game sex is just awesome! I would love it if I were featured in a video game porn shoot.
I would be small penis man, tag teaming it up with the giant black snake.

I wonder if they would make us put on those suits they do for other games. They would have to add a sleeve to put your willie in though.

The game could come with an assortment of sex toys, only for the limited edition though. Like how Guitar Hero and Rockband includes the bandkits and whatnot. God I could just keep this going forever.

I hear there is a shower scene too.

A MALE shower scene, LOL!

Yeah, you read that right. A week ago, we reported a cryptic tweet from Official Playstation Magazine suggesting that there was also a shower scene in Heavy Rain;
“Heavy Rain preview code GET! Whole team gathered around… to watch @bodbod take a shower. :-/ Looks stunning so far. (Not @bodbod)”
Obviously, we assumed it was Madison, who shows all in a strip scene. However, another tweet from OPM, in response to when the public will be able to see the scene, reveals that it’s a male character having a clean;
“Early next year. (It’s a dude in the shower though.)”
The game is out in 2010 for the PS3.

SCEE hasn't made it offical, but European retailers are posting February 26 as the release date over there.

So Feb there and in Japan (all dates still not confirmed by any Sony groups) makes it more likely that is the month we'll get it in the US too.

Also there was good interview with David Cage recently but I forget where I saw it. :cry:

The IGN blog was updated on the 3rd though.

If it's any consolation, it looks like Gran Turismo is aiming for Quarter TWO :-P (source n' such)

I'm wondering if Naughty Dog, Insomniac, or Sucker Punch (Sly Cooper Sly Cooper Sly Cooper) have anything planned. Sony's gotta have more for their second half than just The Last Guardian.

I'm pumped for Heavy Rain, but it does seem like Sony just has too many games in such a short span (Heavy Rain, White Knight, God of War) in addition to the awesome multiplats. E3 will probably show a Q3 game or two. I wouldn't be surprised if Insomniac was bringing out Resistance 3.

Joystiq has some great coverage on their site.

Looks like they are starting to open up the gates and let out more info leading up the the launch next year.

Here is their preview of the 1st chapter, some slight spoilers! Can the write up HERE.

And here is a video interview from a producer. He mentions "more episodes in the months following the launch of the game".

>>>Looks like other sites have added their previews too since I saw joystiq had this last night.

Wow! No reaction to all the new info???

Well then... Will hi-res screens help? :)

PS: The Male showers scene was confirmed by pics floating around out there.
