[DIARY] Just some thoughts about playing Heavy Rain..

So, just finished Heavy Rain tonight. I just wanted to share my thoughts and feelings about the game and how it is like when you’re actually playing it and watching every scene.

The fact that the game was released 2011 if I’m not mistaken, I kind of regret playing it just now thinking that it’s not just an awesome game, but a game that separates PlayStation 3 to the Xbox 360 and PC which is more on FPS-centric gaming monsters than a system that releases random games for random people. Definitely a title that showed the potentials of the PS3 and the later PS Move.

Back to the game, Heavy Rain was a what they call an “Interactive Drama”, yes that what they call it, a genre that is right not so familiar. The game is like you’re watching a movie, a thriller-type of movie and you have your options on what wilk happen next. The plot is centered on a so-called Origami killer who kidnaps children and there’s no given clue at the start of the game. What’s so sure is there are 4 main characters within the game, 1 of them might be the killer, or maybe not. You play the 4 characters togetyer with the supporting characters and make choices by pressing button combinations or motion commands, decide the path to take, all of it will help the game decide who’ll be the origami killer.

I just couldn’t forget the game right now, it’s 11:03PM here in Manila already and I’ve got to go to work in the office tomorrow morning. The game just made me feel mixed emtions. It’s thrilling, partly disturbing specially the first few scenes when Ethan lost Jason and weird things happen. It’s too emotional as a game, I could tell by the music used by the game and it’s piano part is still playing in my head. It’s too dramatic and might make you cry at times. Well it did made me.

My cousin was there last night watching me play the game and I believe she was also into the game. I could say that this game could be a definition of an Adult game, not an R18 game, though. But a game that’s only for the adults cause it’s just too dramatic, you know. Well we could say it’s partly R18 due to some morbid scenes and nudity. It’s a game that you play not for fun, but for serious entertainment. You see, most adult games are for fun. Somewhat like the Hunger Games movie, entertaining cause it has a message to give Hope. Very special thanks to Quantic Dreams for this game.

Looks like it’s too long now, but I have more than 5 endings left to beat this game. Scott Shelby was the Origami Killer on my first playthrough and that’s a spoiler for you kekeke. I have to forget about playing GTA 5 for now. And there’s Beyond: Two Souls on my next list. Oh well, ’til the next weekend!! 😉

Finished Amnesia – The Dark Descent? Check this out…

Today, I have finished “2010’s Most Frightening Horror Video Game” Amnesia – The Dark Descent. I am satisfied. I have acquired the Good ending. I used a walkthrough by Adenosine from GameFAQs.

I found out that after finishing the game, you can access to some exclusive contents of the game such as Art, early concept designs, alpha stage gameplay videos and demonstrations. To access it, here’s what you do:

-Go to Program Files\Amnesia – The Dark Descent\redist folder. (In my case “Program Files(x86)” since I’m using a 64-bit version of Windows 7.)

-Find super_secret.rar. This file can be opened by programs such as WinRAR,
WinZIP, or 7Zip.

-Try to extract it. It will ask for a password.

-Copy and paste this password: lke271tyr299odn314

-The password is actually assembled. Each part of them, lke271, tyr299, and
odn314 are given at the end of the credits when you finish a game. You
get one of these depending on the type of ending you get. (I got odn314, since I have finished the game in Good ending.)

* If you downloaded your game from Steam and you don’t see the file called
super_secret.rar in the redist folder, they say you just have to restart
steam and Amnesia will be updated with the file.

-The super_secret.rar file contains concept art, designs, documents, and
videos involved in the game’s development.

Anyway, here are the photos for the concept art, designs and the videos:
Here are the photos that you’ll find in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Amnesia – The Dark Descent\redist\super_secret\super_secret\art\creatures & characters\ folder:
