    we need more games that are strictly dialog and choice based

    shooting guns is fine but man

    give me a game that lets me talk to a person all day and I'm a happy guy

    One of my other design docs that's slated for Blue Planet is a "The Fugitive"/"Minority Report" style game where you are an ordinary dude who has to escape the police and evade capture until you can solve the mystery.

    Obviously, shooting at cops isn't going to do much for your chances, and even if you uncover the plot, if you've murdered people to do so, you're still going to jail.

    I'd play the heck out of that

    even if it sounds a lot like Indigo Prophecy before that goes pear-shaped

    hell, because of that

    BUY IT

    Maybe when it's down to like forty bucks, but I can only afford to buy one game this month and that money's going to Miles Edgeworth.

    And then the new Pokemon hits next month. I can't justify spending 60 on a game I'll play for a total of maybe like 25 hours when I'll probably dump over 100 into Heart Gold for only 35.

    Exactly. That scene was dead-on. I really wish they would've spent more time with that part of the plot.

    this reminds me that I saw someone use the phrase "p. coo" in a thread somewhere and my eyes started bleeding.

    edit: I just typed breathing instead of bleeding, which is also a weird image but doesn't make as much sense.

    No this game does not look dumb at all. I am guessing most people don't really know how the branching storyline works.

    QTEs are amazing and though Shenmue was an overall shitty game, I'm grateful to it for putting that into modern games

    More thankful to RE4 and God of War for jump-starting it

    i'm not sure how heavy rain in particular is removing control from the players

    it's not an open-world role-player, that's for sure, but david cage has worked very hard to make sure player choice has a meaningful outcome

    I heard it controls awkwardly for movement though. Can anyone who has played the demo comment on that?

    Right. The whole point of the game is that just about every choice you make affects the story in some way.

    It takes some getting used to. You have a "walk" button that you hold down to move and you orient yourself in the direction you want to walk with the analog stick. It feels weird at first but after a little bit it becomes pretty natural. It does lead to some pretty funny/awkward stumbling around right at first.
