    Heavy Rain- PS3 Tech Demo

    Not sure if any of you guys have seen this, but since there's hardly any good news for the PS3 out there, I figured I'd post this. It MIGHT be OFN, since the video is from E3/May so forgive me if so.

    It appears just to be a tech demo, but I believe it is for an upcoming game (possibly of the same name as the demo) Regardless its pretty impressive, the emotion they're able to evoke using realtime rendering, is pretty impressive. Supposedly there's a whole range of things they can do with the engine.

    Here's the HD version. I'd recommend that if you're running on Broadbrand you get this, as it lets you really see how good the game is, otherwise if you dont have 5-10mins to wait for something to download check out the ND version.

    HD: http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php? ... mv&pl=game

    ND: http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php? ... mv&pl=game

    Here's a review of the video while it was @ E3, some of the things they could do with the backgrounds (proving its all pre-rendered I guess?)

    A reason to pay $600? Not quite yet. :wink:

    All I could think of was this:

    :B

    Her teeth drove me craaaazy. But I was interested in what the game could be about. Definitely no reason to pay 600$ though, like you said.

    they had all the creative freedom in the world to create the chick in the video, and that's the best they could do? She's so ugly...

    Ya, they could have done a lot better on those teeth. Reminds me of Cid in the Metalworks zone of Bastok.

    Super. Creepy.

    You'd think that people actually would listen to the video?

    She never gets the parts, thus the character has to be ugly. I think it looks great even if it's not best graphics. And I liked the monologue ;p. I don't know though, I'm getting PS3. I have a hunch in 2 years everyone will complain Wii sucks and they'll be dissapointed they spent only 200 dollars for it.

    Back to homework ><;

    lol, she is not ugly. Since when not having perfect teeth made you ugly. At least they were white and even.

    Sorry was out, but yeah of course you can't miss the teeth, but I think it was for a reason different then you think it was.

    If you think about it, the whole thing was done in real time, which means the dialogue and consequently the lip-synching was done using real time lip synching, which makes sense why it didnt always go exactly with what was being said. They couldn't render the lip movement exactly as they wanted it to, it is all done on the fly. As probably anyone knows, the mouth is one of the hardest things to render in real time, I remember back in the days when lips were moved using textures only, and didnt consist of any polygons, just because it wasnt worth it.

    I dont think they made her intentionally ugly, I just believe they have some kinks to work out on how a real persons mouth can move in real time, without moving the lips so much that the teeth are shown so much on just about every word that's spoken.

    I listened to the audio, thanks for jumping to conclusions. Her teeth are disconnected in a way that is completely unnatural. I didn't mean that she has smoke stains or that they were crooked.

    Pretty much what Lockecole said in his response. I guess the "super creepy" didn't clue you in.

    I don't care about the teeth lol, Quantic Dream made Indigo Prophecy... which kicked so much ass. However, I'd just buy Heavy Rain for my PC >.>

    Is the actual actress, who was presumably modeled after, and also did the voice acting for it. She's foreign, so she does have some sort of accent/speech impediment when speaking English I assume.

    That was some really good voice acting. It almost made me feel like I was right there standing in her kitchen listening to her telling me about how she was going to kill her husband. The facial expresions and body movement were spot on. Amazing.

    I didn't notice the teeth were really large till someone said it but I think it makes her more natural.

    Great find!

    Teeth aside, I thought that was amazing. Minus the lips, their motion capture was incredible. Seeing as this is pre-PS3-release animation, I can only assume it gets better with time.

    But uh, at first when he zoomed in on her hands, I thought it was her crotch and she had walked into a porn audition or something rofl.

    the reason why her mouth looks so weird I think is because the voice is not lip synced correctly to her mouth/lips. The upper lip is pretty much sitting up there while her bottom does all he work.

    Nice graphics, but it doesn't mean the system will have any fun games on it, just pretty ones. So many people get caught up in the flashy shiny aspects of a next generation system that they forget that every leap forward is another brick wall keeping new developers from creating original games and helping established developers spend enormous budgets on the same old shit they know for sure will sell year after year after year.

    It's better then filling up pages of discussion about the girl's teeth.
