    OK STOP RIGHT NOW










    THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE COMPLETED THE GAME AND WANT TO DISCUSS IT.











    If you haven't completed at least one pass through (or heaven forbid even started it) you should hit your back button now. Don't read anything further below as it will spoil the game for you.







    OK, don't say I didn't warn you (several times)....

















    I mean it!!!!!

    You know, I said at the time that particular QTE should have had you pressing virtually every button on the controller for the amusement factor. :D

    Much like the Jayden drug fix QTE where I ended up pressing one of the buttons with my nose. \o/

    My first question is, what ending did you guys get on your first run?


    I saved the kid, and all 4 heroes are alive... Which unlocked the 2 silver trophies. Was that the 'best' outcome?

    I screwed up plenty though. The girl (the wife?) died in the sinking car and I didn't save her, and the guy in the house with all the crosses.... I head-shotted him without a moment's pause for interrogation :/

    My first ending was Naaahhman dead by Mad Jackery, Ethan locked up, Madison saving the kid. Lauren died in the car (I thought the beginning of the 'escape' QTE was the beginning of the 'free her' QTE, in fairness) and yes, I too popped Nathaniel's brainium.

    This thread is the post-completion thread though, the other is just the general story thread. So there.

    Oh and did you THINK it was all along? I thought it was the therapist and had im my mind him hypnotising Nathan and getting him to do all the killings.

    /is rubbish at this kind of thing.

    I thought it was Scott mostly, but I honestly wavered between him, Ethan and Madison.

    What decided me was the typewriter on Scott's desk. That's not even the one he used to type the letters out, that one was in the hidden room, but I didn't know that at the time.

    Hi, I am only judging the game on the demo and read who the killer was, now I am going to come in here and shit on all of you for liking it. I will also pretend it was incredibly obvious he was the killer all along.

    Did you have that prepared in advance along with the other ones?

    Like the Police man was the killer, the dad was the killer, lover was the killer.

    Can you name ONE person who throughout books, films and TV series was not 'the killer' at some point? If you played the game (as if) you'd know that they done a pretty good job of leading you in all other kinds of directions.

    Please tell me you favourite game now so I can waste 10 minutes of my life ripping the shit out of it.

    Heavy Rain is not perfect by a long shot (See Portal) but you pretending to be someone pretending to be retarded is a cliché that also, has been done before.

    You unoriginal child.

    I got Ethan to save the son (my girlfriend was screaming at me to save him at this point lol), lived happily ever after with Madison, Norman was a hero and appeared on tv (which is a bit random) and Scott fell into a oversized meat grinder. Lauren drowned in the car and i blew the religious nut's head off in complete panic lol.

    That's pretty much exactly what I did.

    Plus the FBI agent threw his drugs down the toilet.

    No, Ethan puts the drugs up his arse and then he shits them out on Lauren - they both get aids. The FBI agent goes to the road cafe and gets a call from Ethan asking for help, the FBI agent turns out to be Paul Walker from Fast & Furious and lets Ethan shit in his ears.

    Think this post is shit? Try playing the game.

    Random question... how many times does Ethan black out in the game? Twice? (Not including the panic attack sort of thing in the station)

    I can only remember the two. Only part of the story I found a little odd really (mainly how he ended up with the figures, but having witnessed a friend standing in a bowl of water attempting to drill holes in the ceiling while asleep, I suppose there could be a few explanations for it).

    Yeah, don't get me started on the "oddness" of the blackouts. I have a nasty feeling that Cage is going to wallpaper right over a big hole with some DLC.

    Also... Ethan + Jayden = John Anderton.

    Edit - Shit, now I think about it. So much of Heavy Rain borrows from Minority Report.

    I would like to find out more about the drug Jayden is supposed to take. I never bothered with it throughout the whole game, and there appears to be achievements tied to not taking it, but it seems like all it is designed to do is prevent any side effects from his spectacles of awesomeness.

    I was also amazed at how well the SixAxis stuff worked in the ARI, at first I was throwing the controller around like an idiot, then I realised I could control everything in it just by flicking my wrist. If the weight of the controller wasn't there it would have just felt like running my finger across the iPhone.

    One of the worst parts for me was feeling good about my reaction time vis a vis shooting Nathaniel.

    He'd barely moved and I was watching for it, the last-ditch attempt, and I got him with loads of time to spare. B-BANG, ice cold, score one for the Jaydemeister!

    Oh, it wasn't a weapon. FUCK.

    No one's trying to be witty. All I want to do is laugh at you and you make it easier with every post you make.

    For me Shelby got ground up, Jayden survived, Madison was in the back of a police car and Ethan was gunned down by the cops after saving Shaun. Lauren swam with the fishes. When I realised what had happened to her (or rather what I had done) I had a feeling no game has ever given me before.

    I genuinely didn't see the killer coming at all, a great surprise for me.

    I'm not sure how it's possible to get the finish with all four people alive. I couldn't see any obvious way to end the Jayden and Shelby fight without one of them dying.
