First of all.. Yea for Johnny!! (You're the man) I have that Shirt! I'm feeling quite nefarious today...

O and yea I'm totally excited to play this game. I just finished the demo and I'm super hyped to finish the story. I first thought of Heavy Rain as just a gimmick and maybe worth renting as it would be a quick beat (hehe) but when I actually finished the game I was like DAMN that shit was crazy... meaning I came into the experience expecting NOT to like it and instead felt like giving it a standing ovation. I think Beyond: Two souls will be even more enjoyable..but that's just my opinion.

I like the idea of "interactive dramas" or games that are movies.. cause it works to give games a more credible "adulty" kind of respect which i think is good for the community in general. Also, as a MOVIE - It's way better because you are the one changing the storyline and moving with the character so it makes you feel way more involved and attached to the character. Also, builds on the emotion.. Ex: The walking dead game.. actually made me care about what happens to that little girl in the end.

I for one would love to see more of these games as some games try too hard with cinematics to make it feel like a movie/game ex: Uncharted/Tomb Raider.. But this is strictly a story-orientated experience. If we have good writers and developers pushing out these games we might have some pretty memorable games coming out.

I really would like to know why this show is on/popular. It's just a rehash of Gamespot comments. They just pick out the most annoying comments and post them to make fun of their community/fanboys.

You can get plenty of this by looking at any article's comments, so this show is useless really.

@A_Rabid_Dog It's like watching home movies. Do you really want to sit through hours upon hours of them, or do you simply want to jump straight to the one where your pissed-up gran dances her way off the edge of the table?

Personally, I hated the game. I am all for story but I need to be more involved in the game. Take a story like this and turn it into an adventure style game like Telltale's Walking Dead and I would love it. As is, there just wasn't enough of a game for me to enjoy it.


I enjoyed this episode of Feedbackula FAR more than Beyond: Two Souls.

@RighteousNixon This is my issue. I love stories, but we need to move AWAY from turning games into movies, not closer to that result.

4:20 How the Hell did Metacritic become THE basis for 'right' or 'wrong'?

I guess rawkstar007 is on Metacritic's payroll.

@nate1222 Actually both Gamespot and Metacritic are on CBS's payroll. The point of stacking Tom's reviews against the MC averages was to show that he is almost never in the realm of consensus with other reviewers. Variation of opinions is important but how is it that Tom, a professional critic, is almost NEVER in agreement with other professional critics on major games?

@rawkstar007 @nate1222 Because a lot of people are the same and only a few are really different? That doesn't really help, does it? What do you think?

If the video doesn't work, turn AdBlock off. Gamespot is forcing you to watch adverts in order to see a video on their website.

@TheJamin

Are you using AdBlock? I'm using AdBlock with Firefox & not one single video will work for me with AdBlock turned on. It's seems that the turds in the GS I.T department are punishing people who detest having ads shoved down their throats as a condition of being able to watch anything on this site. I refuse to turn off AdBlock & be subjected to obnoxious advertising just be able to watch a video on this site. Go & sod yourselves with a loaded shotgun Gamespot.

I'm about an hour and a half in and I'm blown away! Definitely seems like so far it has deserved the score of 9, but I'll keep playing to see how it all pans out

Just because you enjoyed the story does not excuse this games poor gameplay. QTE's are still a terrible game mechanic.

This is basically a choose-your-own adventure story with an extremely limited series of choices given to the player through a series of QTE's. There are many games which tell a good story and let the player actually have a decent amount of control for the character - take note of recent games like Dragon's Age, or Mass Effect. These sorts of games allowed for player choice and storyines, while giving the player better control over the character during action scenes.

For any developer to resort to QTE's to flesh out their 'gameplay' is taking the terrible and lazy way out. There is ALWAYS a better way to set up the gameplay than re-hashing one of the most terrible play mechanics to infect video games in the last 40 years. Leave QTE's to the Simon Says consoles from the 70's, real games do not need them.

As an example, I really enjoyed the plot/storyline in Fahrenheit / Indigo Prophecy But I almost never suggest it to others as a game to play through. Why is this? Because most of the gameplay absolutely sucked donkey hooha. Practically the entire game was composed of QTE sequences. Cage should seriously consider teaming up with people to make a game that doesn't use qte's as its primary mechanic. He could come up with the story/characters, and the others could do the gameplay mechanics.

@zenstrata And guess who made Indigo Prophecy? Quantic Dream and David Cage. How surprising. As oldschool and master race of a gamer as I am, I never played either Omikron nomad soul or Indigo and when I learned that Indigo was a bunch of QTE - it turned me off of potentially now playing Omikron either.
