There is some strong language toward the end, just so you know.
Heavy Rain technology demo trailer on YouTube.
You know porn company's are going license that tech for "virtual" casting couches. hehe
companies* even. Argh, I have crappy grammar. =(
I agree with the mouth comments they are a bit wierd . but i have had a pic from that trailer as my wallpaper for months love the whole not really saying much.
That was an awesome trailer. I wonder how its going to translate into gameplay, it's kind of exciting in a way.
Horrible jaw. The whole skull looked vaguely out of tolerance.
There's supposed to be that space right between such poor recreation of the human image that we'll accept that a person is what it's supposed to represent and that spot right before it looks absolutely real -- like with wax sculptures -- where we pick out every little nitpick and get a little weirded out. I can't tell if the jaw bit is a nitpick or if it's still too far away that, overall, the reproduction doesn't bother me. I think the latter.
And weren't those blanks in the gun? Strange. Also pretty obvious who the audience was supposed to be, as I believe anon's first comment pretty accurately implied (no, not porn, but, um, wishing-they-were-playa guys). Wonder why "girls don't like to play games"?
It's called 'the uncanny valley'. And boy does it show here.
Also this sort of tech just encourages the terrible writers in video games; their fantasy that they're screenplay writers. Quantic is especially guilty, they think they're David Lynch and/or Phillip K. Dick.
Thanks -- glad to have the name of it again. And lookit there, she's been an example on the wikipedia page since May.
I do have to think she's on the way up out of the valley though. Aside from the skull and mouth, getting there. The eyes were particularly good on the zoom, iirc, though I guess their geometry's more regular than most.
I probably just have low standards, but I actually liked the writing in this trailer. Maybe the voice actress just made it sound good. *shrugs*
