Heavy RainSo I bought, played, and beat Heavy Rain over the last few days. At first I was very negative about the game because it is a bit slow on the outset and the voice acting was (and still is) atrocious. It is bad. The children especially. I mean, the four main characters are adequately voice acted, Shelby more so, that detective douche bag, less so. Once I got into the thick of the game the less I saw the flaws. It's kind of like riding on a bumpy road in a jeep. At first, when it's slow, it sucks but once it gets going, it's awesome. Overall, I loved that game, though the flaws don't help. So from here on I will do some spoiling. Be Warned.
I already knew who the Origami Killer was because I got the ending spoiled for me about a month after Heavy Rain came out, and that kept me from picking it up sooner but with the encroaching summer I decided to pick it up anyway. Regardless of this fact, I still enjoyed it and didn't try to get Shelby killed or do stupid stuff like that. I played as I would if it was me in each situation. The only things I regret about my play through was that I shot that one crazy religious dude in the detective part, and I let Lauren get away clean. What I mean by that is when Shelby and Lauren are in the antique shop you are supposed to remove all of yer prints, yours and Lauren's, but originally I wanted to leave her prints on the little music box so that she would be incriminated and she would be out of my hair. I didn't end up doing that though. Side Note: Madison Paige. Pretty hot for a bunch of pixels.
I ended up with everyone alive, no one died. I was pretty proficient with my quick time eventfulness. The only thing I did was give up at the very end as the detective because I hated playing as him. He was a strung out dick.
Origami ZerglingI really loved the load time origami arts and crafts thing that came with Heavy Rain. Once I finished that little bird and I had played for a bit I stopped and looked up some origami with the aid of my man onimonkii. Now I've been doing origami for years so I'm not new to it or anything so I thought I could take on a challenging craft. What I came across was an origami zergling. I went out and got some origami paper the next day and completed one for myself after following the instruction video the artist uploaded to YouTube. Here is the fruit of my labour. I would upload the image into this blog post to prevent this entry form looking like a big scary wall of text, but my image won't load to the site for some reason. Actually, I will place that original photo here. So that I don't get any TL;DRs.
I bought the games Valkyria Chronicles and Eternal Sonata. I've been on a real anime kick lately and I've been in the mood for a few JRPGs and these two were cheap and looked good. I'll crack into those either tonight or tomorrow. I may do a follow up once I beat them both, which I don't think will be any time soon.
One peculiar thing about these two games is that the cover art looks very similar. See for yourself.
Honestly, I prefer the Xbox 360 box art for Eternal Sonata but I bought it for the PS3. Anyways, both covers have text in the middle, a dude (one is a chick, I know) above that text and a bunch of other duders below that text. Both dudes above the text are staring out at you sternly while the ones below the text are engaged in some tomfoolery. I feel like there might be other games out there with the same cover scheme.
So that's about it...
I've been watching a lot of anime recently. Go check out my list of the stuff I've seen lately and comment or shit talk; whichever you like. Here is the link to the awesomeness that is my Anime List.
That's all for now. Check out this awesome user, Tuddlesworth. He's an octopus with a top hat. As per usual, I will leave you with an awesome image. Bye :3
