Heavy Rain: Your Questions Answered

Chris Morell's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

You saw the Gamescom walkthrough. Then you saw the European PlayStation Blog‘s interview with Heavy Rain writer/director David Cage. And a few weeks back we told you we’d get your questions in front of Quantic Dream.

And that we did. Here’s what Mr. Cage had to say about it…

I’m not going to watch the video, sorry but I simply won’t, why? Well, simple, I no longer wish to be spoiled that’s why :D Release the game already! Unless you can assure me I won’t be spoiled when I watch that video, then please tell me *lol*.

@Everyone, PLEASE! Leave your complaints (there are already enough as there is) about the 3.0FW in the specific Blog post.

    I totally agree. I feel the same way about Uncharted 2, as well.

OMG, I love the new trailer. I cannot wait for this game. Next year will be killer with this game, god of war, wkc, the last guardian, and new resistance.

Day one people. Day effing one. As a gamer in his late 20’s I can’t wait for a game that has a story that consists of more than mindlessly killing everyone that crosses my path.

@2 they have ignored folk since 2006. Don’t expect any response.

HR looks great though. Cage = God.

Here’s a question NOBODY has asked:

Which ORDER will we play the characters in throughout the game?

    That\’s a really interesting question. Next time we see Quantic Dream, we\’ll have to ask. But comment #16 seems to have some insight.

@ 7 –
I’m not going to watch it either. This game looks like it has a great story and I don’t want to risk spoiling it either (same goes for Uncharted 2). And I agree, although I hate 3.00, people shouldn’t comment about it in a blog post about Heavy Rain. That’s what the Playstation forums are for.

Sereal_Killer said:

September 1st, 11:09 am

Order? as in who comes first second etc?

well think of it as bouncing back and forth between all the characters so there is no beginning the story with A and ending it with D.

and i gues the order will also depend on your actions cause if character B dies i don’t think he will be coming back.

20089/2010= awesome. hell we get GoW blu-ray to keep us busy.

a question i would have liked to see is how they plan on implementing trophies for this sort of game and not having it be redundant and distracting.

On my to buy list :) but I just have 1 very important question? Do I need a rain coat to play this game?

(all in good fun) :)

My questions didn’t get asked…sad.

I wished more questions were answered; I’m sure a lot more questions were asked by us.

    Yeah, I\’d love to ask them all (there were a lot!), but we only had a short amount of time with Mr. Cage.

@ 15

Well that would ruin the surprise.

Curious to see what kind of reception this game will get.

@ #24…. You’e correct! AMAZING eh? 1500 plus posts and NOT A SINGLE response.

cool. game looks nice.

You know what’s funny. It finally made me realize just how crappy of a company Sony is this generation. It wasn’t the $600 price, no games, crappy online service, that idiot Koller, etc. It was 3.0 that opened my eyes. I’ll stick to PC gaming.

PYTHON101 said:

September 1st, 11:38 am

Ummmm….. ever thought Sony plans on going through all those comments and since a lot of users have been posting needlessly I’m sure they were always refreshing to more and more comments so they’re going to take a break and see what’s going on although we know the next update will just be a fix.

Back on TOPIC! Heavy Rain looks really nice.

Will we get a free animated heavy rain ps3 theme? (please note the free bit)

#2. Your posting on Heavy Rain about the disapproval of an interface change in the system is epic fail. Jesus, do you want a Happy Meal with that toy? I don’t think I’ll enjoy Heavy Rain any less because of the 3.0 interface, but still people go on. What? Do you stare at you PS3 XMB when you log on, or do you play games?

JukeboxAddict said:

September 1st, 11:54 am

People are complaining in here because “Thanks for your feedback!” isn’t much of a response. There are intelligent customers discussing legitimate complaints around here, and Sony is just brushing it off. Please don’t screw us over until 2010.

Chris Morell is hot. I rate him a 5/5.

Really looking forward to this game. It’s a shame it’s so underappreciated by gamers. Heavy Rain is a revolution in interactive story telling. I personally don’t look at the QTEs at QTEs. They’re more like controlling you character in a different way. They’re more like on-screen action bottons. And all the different ways the story can turn out is just astounding.

My first run through of the game is going to consist of me letting all the characters die at the very first possible chance to do so, and work my way up from there systematically to TRY and see every possible outcome, or at least as many as possible before I go bananas.

I’ve been a gamer since the EARLY 80’s and owned every major console in real time. And PS3 has made this gan BY FAR my favorite of all. PS3 exclusives are some of the best games of all time. And they are CONSISTENTLY good quality.

I am so excited about this game. I can’t wait to play it!

A dynamic theme of Heavy Rain adapted to life with playstation weather notification in your country / town… could that be possible? Probably thinking of something entirely impossible but hey… a girl may dream haha…. either way dynamic theme of the game would be awesome anyway and even more when its free hehe.

I can’t wait to sink my teeth into this title, and witness/play the myriad approaches there are to every single encounter, friendly or otherwise.

commedieu said:

You guys should really give Indigo Prophecy a shot if you haven’t already. At least you will know what to expect.

Its a mix of(controls/vibe/types of gameplay)

GTA & Resident Evil 1-3

This game has the “2010 GOTY” seal all over it.

Thanks for posting the interview

September 1st, 2:12 pm

Jesus, this game just keeps getting more and more spectacular. This will without a doubt be my favorite game of all time, or at least tied with Uncharted 2.

BigPoppaB said:

September 1st, 2:24 pm

it seems like all the best parts of the game happen in QTE.. which isnt a bad thing for some but I still recall buying Dragons Lair on Sega CD and being devastated. Not gonna make same mistake twice

I want to know what these rumblings of DLC are about.

*ANY* hint of DLC = an *incomplete* game and will be a NO sale for me.

shadowkiller11 said:

September 1st, 3:19 pm

I’m certainly pre-ordering this i wonder if there will be any bonuses in doing so? Also who are the immature idiots rating all the articles down because of 3.0? are they trying achieve something?
