    ahhh, finally
    let's see what this is all about
    I may never get used to walking using the R2 button, nor will it get any more tolerable to not be able to run (if you can they dont tell you how)
    one thing is for sure, it is cinematic and fairly immersive
    but I don't really see the graphics being any better than something like Mass Effect, which has some absolutely amazing work
    actions are performed with combinations of the right trigger, plus click and hold performances of all other buttons, which proved to be challenging on the crime scene mission when you need to {{{{SPOILER}}}}} climb the hill
    also, I hear for the first hour it is sssssslllllllloooooooowwwwww
    I liked it, not sure I'll be a first day consumer, but I'll eventually get it
    reminded me alot of Indigo Prophecy

    Seemed like one of those "watch this movie and kind of interact with it" games from the early videos. I'll DL the demo, but not expecting much other than a nice visual.

    Demo was okay. I'm not wowed by it, but the concept is interesting. I'll buy it when it's cheap. For now, Bioshock 2.

    Sorry but it's ALOT better looking then Mass Effect 2.

    Other then that, it's good but it's going to appeal to a select few.
    The reviews so far have been excellent.

    you think so ?
    they both look good, but moments like conversation events look pretty even to me, close enough to not say that one is ALOT better than the other

    I played the demo last night and thought it was pretty good. It's different but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I don't think I'll buy it, but I'll probably rent it.

    I actually think you'd enjoy this game as it is story driven more then anything else. And the story (based on reviews, I haven't really followed it as I don't want spoilers) is meant to be very good.

    A lot might be a stretch.

    Mass Effect is probably the best looking RPG I've ever seen (I'm not counting FFXIII as an RPG anymore).

    Heavy Rain makes me wish I owned a PS3.

    I wouldn't count Mass Effect as an RPG anymore either
    it's really more of a story driven 1st person shooter / adventure
