Default Beyond: Two Souls

I totally forgot that I pre-ordered this game until I got my shipping notice tonight. It's coming out tomorrow. Anyone else getting it? I pre-ordered this as part of a "pre-order 3, get each for $39" deal (along with The Last of Us and Dark Souls 2). Heavy Rain was a cool experience but I would never recommend anyone pay the full $60 for it or this.

I expect this to be just as polarizing of a game as Heavy Rain. People will praise the graphics and technical aspects while other criticize the fact that it's basically an interactive movie. I just hope that the writing is tighter and the voice acting is more consistent than in Heavy Rain.

I am intrigued but don't want to spend the money right now. I have heard that it's not really going to control like Heavy Rain though. And I've heard that it will be more than just an interactive game.

I never played Heavy Rain. I was interested in this game when I first heard about it earlier this year, but tbh, I'm not sure if I find it all that appealing now.

The more I game, the more I realize I prefer open-world games, like GTA, Assassin's Creed, etc.

Just like I thought, critic reviews are all over the map for this game. From as low as 4/10 to 9's and a 10. Gamespot gave it 9/10 but IGN only 6/10.

I really want to play it but I feel inclined to beat Heavy Rain first, and with the way games are dropping in price 2-4 months after release and black friday coming up...I'll wait for a sale. Or the eventual PS4 version.

Plus the storyline of it is engaging as ****, I just haven't had the time/inclination really to do a lot of video gaming since I bought the game.

It's not as interactive as you'd want it to be. If that is a game breaker, it's a terrible experience and the review would be awful. If it's not, then it's an engaging experience.

Me, i liked Heavy Rain although i'm not clamoring for another game like that and the plot of this one (the protaganist especially) holds little interest for me.

Heavy Rain is such a great game. I never would have guessed the killer.
It does take a bit before it picks up, but the last 5-6 hours were awesome.

Great game, one of my favorite PS3 exclusives.
