    The demo is hitting the JPSN sometime tonight. I managed to register an account.


    I may be playing it sooner than I dreamed.

    If I get it, certainly.


    I already watched the Catherine PV in HD, c/o the Japan PSN. So many little details I never noticed. The end of the 3rd PV has some blurry English writing in the background, something to the effect of "I will never let you forget".

    The title music is amazing. I will resume later, for those who missed it. 8:30ish EST.

    I was interested in the story, but had no idea what to make of the gameplay. After playing the demo, I can definitely see a lot of potential. As long as the difficulty curve stays manageable...

    Wow, the camera's controllable during the cutscenes. Never would've noticed if not for that GB quicklook.

    And I think I MIGHT be able to get to that sheep in Nightmare 1. Gotta try that.

    Jesus, watching that Quicklook, I don't even know if I'd want to play a US release.


    I want to play the game. I just don't know if I'd have more fun watching it in Japanese going "umm what?" than if I knew what the fuck was going on.

    Since I had to know, the classical music playing during Nightmare one is

    Jupiter, Bringer of Jollity.

    This game should be a dream for classical music fans.

    The Planets were easily my favorite songs to play in band

    Mars is the best, of course, but Jupiter is really fun

    I'll have to double check, but it sounds like Mars was used in Nightmare 1 too.

    Sometimes you just need proof that a full band and orchestra can be more fearsome than a cannon.

    That is what Mars is for.

    Just finished the demo
    The whole style of the game is pretty great

    The actual gameplay was fairly simple puzzling, but seemed to be fun enough

    There was some real world interaction inbetween cutscenes (texting, possibly sexting?)that swayed your mistress <-> girlfriend meter. The scenes themselves have pretty great animation, even if I didn't really know what was going on, you could tell from the main character's facial expressions.

    All in all I am definitely still looking forward to this coming out, seems to be some good storytelling/art going on, and some whacked out puzzle levels.

    Oh, and when you're hovering over the game icon from the ps3 menu it plays a rap song about sheep and adultery.

    So is the storyline not that you sleep with the blond Catherine and then die later like someone who watched the Ring? Cause her hair looking like goat horns is kind of a hint, along with all "cheat on steady girlfriend, die" stories throughout recorded history.

    I love the idea of a real seduction in a video game. Not in love with the idea of playing (having to play) as an asshole who cheats on his girlfriend, but I guess that's a personal thing.

    Judging from the demo, Vincent was highly inebriated when he slept with Catherine, because he looks utterly shocked in the morning with him next to her. Katherine informs him that she's pregnant shortly afterward, and all hell breaks loose; paired with the reports of unfaithful men being found dead in their beds, drained of life.

    I'm kind of hoping that the game won't go the route of "Oh, you like Catherine? You get the bad end!" I'd like it to be more about how you treat both girls rather than about which girl you prefer.

    But given what I've heard of the story, I have a feeling that's not going to be the case.

    That said, I'm still really excited about this game.
    The poster would like to note that he's totally biased toward blondes.

    Found a subbed version of the demo.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvLPcly3Eas

    Story segments start at 5:10.

    Cliff notes-


    Cafe:
    Katherine has been with Vincent since they were kids. He's 32 now.
    She says her parents are bothering her about marriage.
    She says he looks tired, he says it's because of work.
    He asks if she's had dreams about death; she says she's had dreams about killing.
    (He says that's just like her.)

    Bar:
    Vincent says Katherine is bugging him about marriage.
    Jonathan's a bachelor; says he's waiting for the right person, and won't get married to anyone else.
    He's seeing girls regularly, and won't commit to any of them. If he can't find the right one, he won't marry.
    Jonathan says his divorced friend was found dead by his mother.
    Vincent's been having horrifying dreams lately, he used to have them when he was young too.

    Well, that definitely fills in the gaps of the bits that I missed.

    Also, it's good to know that Meguro's music is still the tits.

    Catherine's demo was pulled from the PSN. It's still on the 360.


    It was way, way more popular than they expected, and it broke Sony's download limit.

    Goddamn Atlus, this is all the evidence you need for a local release.

    JP release in seven days.

    As such, I've updated the OP for the last time.


    Was that too much? I never know.
