But wha- how did...what? (End Spoilers)

#1 Posted by MetalGearSunny (7003 posts) -

I just beat the game. I had Ethan die on me (Drank the poison, drove to the wrong address) but in the end it shows him moving in to a new house with his son. What? How is he alive? I didn't get the trophy for ending the game with everyone alive so...what the hell?

Deadly poison was a LIE!

If it was a lie, then I should've gotten the trophy since he's not dead...right?
#4 Posted by Gnubberen (785 posts) -

I guess you should have.. no one else died right?

Did his kid die?
 
If so - no Trophy for you.

Wait, why did your Ethan die? The poison isn't a poison, so what killed him?

Nope, kid is alive.

...I don't know, I'm just assuming the game recognized him as dead since I didn't get a trophy.

Maybe you need the best ending possible to get the trophy. I beat the game (drinking the poison, but going to the RIGHT address) and I got the same cutscene you did and the trophy.

@Metal_Gear_Sunny: The Poison is a dude, so I'm not sure what exactly happened...

To get the trophy all characters have to make it to the warehouse. You said he went to the wrong address, therefore no trophy.

Then the requirements for the trophy should be worded differently.

Yep, but it isn't. Not an uncommon problem with trophies/achievements.

Agreed.

How did you drive to the wrong address? I thought the game hit you over the head with the right one. (You call the location and hear birds and ships, obviously that means it is near water. There is only one place out of the three that is near water.) You even drank the poison so the address should have been filled out correctly.

So wait. You had Ethan die... but the ending had a scene where he moved into the new place? 
 
That sounds like a huge glitch to me. This game is bugged to shit, it was for me at least.

The way Heavy Rain handles trophies is terrible anyway.

Yeah I know. There are two trophies I swear I will never get - Happy Birthday and Kamikaze. I did both of them about 5-10 times perfectly, followed guides that said I should get it, and no trophy. I was so mad. I'm not even going to try for Perfect Crime because I'm scared I won't get it, so buggy.

@xyzygy: 
He did not have him die, he just thought he did. He thought that, since he did not get his trophy because he did not pay attention to the game, that Ethan died. His thought was probably "hey  where the fuck is my trophy? I guess the only logical explanation is that ethan died even though I did not see him die." 
 
Of course op, it is that reason, not because you are bad at the game.
#21 Posted by xyzygy (10079 posts) -
@Colf: Then who would have died? 
#22 Posted by Karkarov (3291 posts) -

For the record it is also plenty possible to get to that point in the story and not have a filled out address.  I know I didn't have it all.  As for trophies... uh I have never had a trophy fail to credit when I did the scene the way it wanted, including happy birthday.

@Karkarov: If you do a search on Google or something, you'll find that the trophy is extremely glitched. I'm not the only one experiencing this. You were just lucky I guess.

Wait.....you can call each location!? Fuuuuuu

Yep, it is. Failed the Butterfly and didn't kill the dude.

Guess so.  My initial save game got corrupted so I had to play the majority of the game over.  I got credit for it both times and did not use a walkthrough or guide for the game.

Hm, I got this too. Weird.

Yeah. They do lots of cheap shit. I had the car with Shelby and Lauren fill with water completely and then Shelby just walks on out. 
 
I wouldn't know in your case though, when it said to kill myself I just walked the fuck out.
