The lights are on
Beyond: Two Souls released today, and as is customary in our video game culture, a trailer has been created to commemorate the occasion.
It's the most gameplay you'll get to see before the Let's Play videos starting flooding YouTube if they haven't already. Make sure to check out our review of the game here where Matt Helgeson calls it a "flawed epic".

I loved Heavy Rain, but based on the reviews I have seen I'll be returning my preorder and waiting until this game is cheap.
I think this is an interesting game not because of the story, but because it actually raises an interesting question among the industry. What exactly can be defined as a video game? From everything I have read so far, this is more of a movie than a game since very little of the player's input matters.
Needless to say this could be the stuff of debates soon enough. I myself love to enjoy a good story more than anything and I sometimes play games that don't have the best gameplay for the story, but when a game has little to no gameplay I wonder if it's more of an interactive movie than a game.
Gonna buy and play the hell out of this game!
I'm about an hour and a half in to the game and I'm digging it so far. Being a super spooky ghost/entity thing feels so empowering to me for some reason. Especially as he gradually becomes more malevolent as you play.
I want it....
Just beat the game (Yay for being unemployed.... hire me someone please!) and i gotta say it was amazing, although short coming in at around 8 hours. Also... even virtual Ellen Page is hot...
I bought this game and glad I did, cause I enjoyed heavy rain so much I wish it was more like Heavy Rain, I think David Cage needs to have an attitude adjustment cause while playing thru this so far I feel his ego got in the way of giving fans what they wanted. Oh well im still happy I have this and GTA V to close out my ps3 library collection. onward into the future. the ps4 and david cage.if you still refuse to give us Heavy Rain 2.. YOU"RE FIRED! how about that. go make syfy movies or something cause its like you have ADD when it comes to actual gaming. Sony says this is not like heavy rain.. BS! even the controller buttons feels just like HR.. I mean c'mon guys you're better than this. it feels more like a movie than a game here's a brief flow chart.
Speak, Speak.. Hold L2, tap X, tap O, R2, shake controller, Hold L2+R2... speak speak.. up, down, side to side, now twerk... THIS right here in Beyond Heavy Rain two souls with CO-OP!..priceless
Its good so far that Ive played. The beyond toucb app works well with it. I still prefer a controller bht it would be good for co op.
Let's see a test chamber!
I've thoroughly enjoyed it thus far.
Looks pretty cool. One of my most anticipated games of the year. Can't wait to play it.
