If she had said no I would have been in deep s**t.


Arrghhh!! I hate all this gushy bullshit. If she had said 'No' he would have got someone else and gushed just as much over her.

Just tell us you're pleased she's in your game and have done with it. Douche.

Wonder if she rapes anyone in the game like Boltie did in Super which is by far her best film yet but never ever gets a mention in any interviews. She raped Dwight from the American Office for gods sake!! Surely that alone is worth a mention?

That's a great scene, shame about her final scene in that movie! :lol:

I personally think its between "Juno & Hard Candy" as to which is her best performance.

Yeah it was a bit shocking, but after the queue cutter scene i think anything was possible in that movie. The wrench is now my weapon of choice when the zombie apocalypse happens.

what makes you say that? the stunning graphics? can't think what else would, because nobody but the dev team know anything about it other than the graphics. :D

I think he's saying that based off how Heavy Rain played- which isn't particularly fair... But if it is one long QTE with a dull plot and pretty graphics I wouldn't wholeheartedly disagree- I thought HR was a bit mediocre. Sorry!
But before anyone says 'go back to your generic fps's' or something, I love all kinds of games- I just expect some form of gameplay from a console capable of games as good as the Uncharted series.

Saying that, I'll wait to see how this turns out before I judge it- it certainly looks nice. Cage is still a douche, though. :mrgreen:

fair enough bout heavy rain, i really enjoyed it personally, apart from who the killer turned out to be - bit random. did really enjoy it though! certainly up there with the uncharted games as a story teller!

maybe i'm imagining it, but i think i read somewhere that this doesn't play like heavy rain and gives the player more freedom, whatever that means? it would've been on cvg as i don't really read anywhere else.

Yeah, I remember some numpty here on CVG blew who the killer was before I played it which didn't help. It sucked out any intrigue or mystery- and for a game that is essentially a film, that was pretty much all it had going for it.

There was a demo for HR so maybe Beyond will get one too... Then I will let the judging commence!

A story that mentions David Cage along with the usual "I hate him, his dog Clive and his games that aren't games but actually are because I'm still pressing buttons yet I just can't stop talking about him" comments.
