Just finished playing the demo... All I gotta say is... What happened???  Fahrenhiet / Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain are two of my most favorite games.  Even the demo for Heavy Rain was GREAT, and really made me excited to purchase and play the game.  I've been excitedly awaiting David Cage's next game, but when I first saw BEYOND announced I scratched my head... the story seemed a little weird and not really that interesting.  The typical cliche "Girl that is experimented on, has super natural powers, runs from the law, etc" bullshit.  Heavy Rain could of been a master piece if it was only written better, but everything about it was great other wise.  As much as it pains me to say, after playing the demo for this game - I'm still scratching my head.  The controls are a total step back from Heavy Rain and Fahrenhiet, it seems like there is even less freedom of choice.  This seems POINTLESS as a video game.  And let me tell you I LOVE THESE TYPES OF GAMES.  I love interactive cinema, and games where you mostly watch...  but this game it just seems like its really forced.  The controls are so bad, its like Dragons Lair from the 1980's.  I'm so disappointed!!!  This is not what I expected after two amazing games!  What happened Quantic Dream???

Aw shit, I already have both Fahrenheit and Alan Wake. Great suggestions though, I highly recommend them to anyone who hasn't played them yet.

Thanks for this video, really insightful. Please do an episode for Fable Anniversary, I know its just an HD remake but I would love to see what you guys compare it to. Thanks again!

fahrenheit could be better than heavy rain if it wasn't for the crappy (pc in my case) controllers and that ending. but still both are great games. 

and yes, beyond will be a "qte fest", so stop whining, if you don't like quantic dream games, just don't play them, just like telltale games.

God I hope this game doesn't play like Heavy Rain (Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit). One big ass quick-time event... SNOOZE.

Lol took me a moment to realize the reference to The Last of Us.

@SHEETBIKE Was that supposed to be a STEPHEN!/JASON! meme-splice or did I imagine it?

Did GameSpot sign some deal with Amazon? Seems like there has been quite a few Amazon plugs as of late.

Really disappointing that you are advertising tax-dodging Amazon

It looks amazing! I really want to get myself a PS3 soon.

The Fahrenheit game was brilliant. I really enjoyed it.

Good show Johnny, it reminds me of Max Scoville's show on You Tube... But still a good show.

Very cool, I really liked heavy rain and i appreciate the nod to indigo prophecy.  Indigo's story started out strong, but got completely wacky towards the end.  (Just IMO though i have friends who liked indigo better) I think I remember two aliens fighting each other or something as the last battle.  Heavy rain I thought was a fleshed out version of that game with some great French voice actors who looked just like their in-game characters.  Prior to watching this I didn't know it was made by the same folks but now I'm excited!

I didn't think the golden compass was THAT bad... but then I do have a thing for Nicole Kidman...

If you don't have time to read Northern Lights and the other books you can pick the audio plays of them from amazon too. They are much better than the film version.

I much rather prefer this over GTA V any day. A unique underrated game is what I most fancy for in my cup of tea.

The jury's still out on this game, but man... You can't deny that view.

I've got every game he mentioned they were all great and I pre-ordered Beyond Two Souls a long time ago.

wait... so beyond two souls is nearly to be released, is "The Last of Us" yet worth to play, while Beyond is ready to play?

Indigo Prophecy is well worth the recommendation, one of my favorite games! I think I'm going to play it again. Thanks for reminding me Johnneh.

@MrCoolGuy420 why spoil the plot and fun on youtube? if you are waiting to buy it anyways

@TransvormerSCol Im not 100% sure what you meant but Last of Us is a great game and the release of Beyond should not influence your decision to buy it. Both will probably be good. Actually last of us will not "probably" be good, it is great and I recomment you try it. :)

@LADIES_MAN_2013 @RAD_RADIO Seriously Ladies_Man_2013. You have to be trolling or something here. You can't seriously want Rad_Radio to die solely based on the fact that his gaming preferences/opinion differ from yours?

Actually, it's a matter of time I am able to spent for playing games. I was waiting for Beyond Two Souls all the time since I heard about it. Also, there is a handful of games I own and never played yet. That's why I didn't buy The Last of Us, because right now, Beyond Two Souls is more interesting for me.

@oflow No kidding, I feel sorry for people with an inner dialog that sounds like that. I mean why be so hostile when you're referencing two games that are astounding in completely different ways. It's extremely unfortunate that these are commonly seen comments on the internet. 

@LADIES_MAN_2013, would you say something like this to a complete stranger in person? I hope not. We need to start showing some respect to each other here in the comment boxes.

@gamelover711  its just the common way the current DIAF internet culture/generation talks unfortunately.  They need more real-life interaction and hugs from mommy.

@TransvormerSCol apples and oranges, one's not better than the other as they're completely different games...just depends what you're looking for.

@TransvormerSCol I'm sure beyond two souls is going to be a pretty good game.. But I doubt it'll be as good as The Last of Us. If The Last of Us interests you even a little, I'd make that your priority.
