Released Wednesday, 7th April 2010
Good episode? Give it some love!
There are, occasionally, titles that seem to herald a new day in videogames. Some have claimed Quantic Dream's latest creation as one such experience, marking the future of interactive fiction.We hope you brought your umbrella, because this week Scott and I venture into Heavy Rain to discuss whether or not this theory holds water. As usual, we will avoid spoilers until absolutely necessary. For the spoiler-sensitive out there, we give plenty of warning before we reveal secrets, so feel free to give this podcast a listen.

Discussion starters:- Prior to the game's release, were you excited about Heavy Rain? If so, why?- How well did the game's mechanics succeed in telling the story? Should they be emulated by other creators of interactive drama?- How well does Heavy Rain succeed in telling an "adult" story?To listen to the podcast:- Subscribe to the EXP Podcast via iTunes here.
