Gotta say

I'm playing this PS3 game called Heavy Rain and it's really, really good. Sort of a combination procedural/choose-your-own-adventure/adventure game. Full of odd and impressive moments that I think move the whole genre forward.

Trust me, in 10 years, there'll be game directors that get awards the way theater and film directors do.

Oooh. Yeah. I saw a piece on that game a few weeks ago, and was going to ask you and Lamb about it (namely, whether it's the game that will finally make me buy a PS3).

It's super cool. But the voice acting? HORRID.

Freeman said...

Gyda -

Compared to what? The amazing voice acting in other video games?

Gyda said...

somehow it just seems more horrid than most. They don't even seem to have decent American accents--they're all off somehow.

Freeman said...

I dunno. It's a French developer, so the accents are off. But I think as far as basic acting goes, in a video game, I've seen far worse.
