I can't get my snark meter up high enough to sass the first boss. Any tips?

Eh, looks too much like a rip-off of The Last Of Us.

Is the guy in the 4th picture Taran Killam from Saturday Night Live?

Funny enough, prior to this announcement, Naughty Dog released a revised trailer of The Last Of Us. They redesigned the little girl so she no longer looks like Ellen Page:

Her head's larger and the silhouette looks a bit rounder because of the pulled-back hair, eyebrows are slightly taller and don't taper off to such a sharp point. Her lips, nose and structure around the nose and eyes are a little plumper too. There's a bit more curviness on the neck to shoulders too. It all adds up to make her look a bit younger and head more proportionate with the rest of her body.

Perhaps they caught wind of this game being made and who was the lead?

Other than the girl looking like Ellen Page, I'm not sure what makes it a ripoff of the Last of Us. Especially since the girl in Beyond:Two Souls actually IS Ellen Page.

It was just a joke about how much Ellie in The Last Of Us looked like Ellen Page. Nothing more than that.

Looks interesting.

And of course being Quantic Dream you know what to expect, for better or worse.

You know, as long as someone isn't running around yelling JASON or SHAUN for 20 fucking minutes I'll be happy.

Looks like we'll be getting lots of AIDEN instead.

Fresh out of tips. I'm sure Lewis Carroll could fix you up, though.

Graphics look good but I have no interest in an interactive movie.

I agree on both counts but, assuming the story doesn't go off the rails, I'll get it when the price drops.

I hope you don't own Uncharted 1, 2 or 3, then.

Loved Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain, so I'm interested in this.

Although linear as hell (even the platforming is pretty much on the rails), the Uncharted games are still very much third person shooters. And though there's 90 minutes of cinematics in each sequel (the first game only had about 60 minutes), you spend more time actually playing than watching.

Let's face it, these Quantic Dream games are nothing more than gorgeous QTE games. And there's really no shame in that. For some, that's worth the $60 price tag. For others, it's only worth a $20 price tag.

It's a valid point, the crappy Simon-style puzzles in Indigo Prophecy were more aggravating than anything, the only real puzzle in Heavy Rain was a puzzle through an electrical grid.

Still, these games ooze atmosphere, and I love that.
