RIP. and he also scared the *** out of me when i played heavy rain lol
Wow man that sucks :(
It always sucks nutts to hear about a dude as talented as that passing away, especially when they've made such a chilling contributions to the Gaming business. What's worse is that the Music of games is one of the few footholds we have in our fight against those retards who ask questions like, "Are games bad for you", or, "Are games art?" and all that other crap. Games entertain, Music inspires, put the two together with a brain numbing story Like Heavy Rain, and I can honestly say that Normand Corbeil has left a legacy worth fighting for.
The heavy rain music only makes this news sadder.
He was a really good composer who made scores that will be hard to forget.
It's sad, I'm playing through Heavy Rain right now. RIP I'll see you in Heaven.
That's quite sad to hear.
Heavy Rain has one of the best soundtracks that I've ever heard in a game. Rest in peace.
May his soul rest in peace and hopefully he got some work done for heavy rain 2.
LET HIS MUSIC LIVE ON *buys soundtrack*
My condolences to the family, his contributions to that game helped to craft it into the amazing experience it was.
:( R.I.P I loved his work Hope had fun while it lasted :'(
:[ No no no no, the music score of Heavy Rain was just stunning.
