Feature: QTEs are the baddie taping your eyes open so you're forced to watch

Beyond: Two Souls review

The year is 2019 and I have never played a David Cage game. Sure, I said, I can review Beyond: Two Souls. It will be a good opportunity to see what all the fuss is about, both negative and positive. I’ll keep an open mind. That open mind, like all best-laid plans, did not survive contact.

Beyond: Two Souls continues David Cage’s reign of terror on PC today

Quantic Dream's line of PlayStation-exclusive story 'em ups continue to trickle onto PC, with 2013's Beyond: Two Souls arriving today. This is the one where Ellen Page is pals with a spooky ghost and Willem Dafoe plays his usual creepo weirdman. This is a rare game where Quantic Dream realise that the 'muffed this one right up' outcomes of their quick-time events are far more…

Meet angsty Ellen Page and her spooky ghostpal in the Beyond: Two Souls demo

Following the PC debut of Heavy Rain earlier this week, developers Quantic Dream are now offering a demo slice of their next former-PlayStation-exclusive, Beyond: Two Souls. This is the one where Ellen Page plays a teenager with a spooky ghostpal that gets her into all sorts of scrapes, not to mention a wacky government programme overseen by the Green Goblin himself, Willem Dafoe. The one…

Jason! Jason! Jason! Jason is now on PC with Heavy Rain

Quantic Dream today bring to PC perhaps the best of David Cage's PlayStation-exclusive QTE storysprawls, Heavy Rain. I'm damning with faint praise there, but the murder mystery told through the perspectives of four characters is an interesting one at times. Also, it's hilarious to repeatedly fail QTEs to shake a carton of orange juice then just stand there with your digiman staring blankly as the…

Heavy Rain demo pours onto PC [update: and it’s back]

Quantic Dream are making good on their threats, today releasing a demo of Heavy Rain ahead of its PC launch in June. Heavy Rain is arguably the least awful of their recent quicktime event thrillers, telling the branching and intersecting stories of people hunting for a serial killer. The start is pants and it completely stacks the ending but the middle has some interesting bits,…

The Outer Worlds, Control, The Sinking City and others go Epic exclusive

Epic Games are getting serious about going head-to-head with Valve with their store, and have the war-chest to prove it. They've just announced a slew of exclusives, including Obsidian's highly anticipated The Outer Worlds, and Remedy's upcoming horror shooter Control. Frogwares's cthulhoid detective mystery The Sinking City will be making its debut on the upstart storefront too. This is on top of Epic's surprise announcement…

Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human coming to PC via Epic

You all called me paranoid, said David Cage wouldn't dare, insisted it would never happen, that the "threat" I spoke of was a joke, but it's true: Quantic Dream are bringing more games to PC, starting with 2010's Heavy Rain, 2013's Beyond: Two Souls and 2018's Detroit: Become Human. After years of PlayStation exclusivity, the Indigo Prophecy studio been lured back by Epic Games Store…

Quantic Dream threaten to end PlayStation exclusivity

Quantic Dream, the French studio behind story 'em ups from Omikron: The Nomad Soul and Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy to Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human, are looking to expand beyond the PlayStations they've exclusively been working with for 12 years. Quantic Dreams first two games came to PC but since then their increasingly fancy and clumsy wankathons have been limited to Sony's console. Now Quantic…

Feature: Blew our minds

An ode to the cyberpunk David Bowie of Omikron: The Nomad Soul

Omikron: The Nomad Soul was one of the first games I remember properly playing. This means it’s inevitably one I remember fondly; it is the reason I hold out hope, every time, that Quantic Dream’s next game won’t be a well realised but absolutely complete disaster. Incidentally, you can get it in the current Steam sale for like a quid. I replayed it to get…

Quantic Dream deny abusive working conditions

Quantic Dream, the French studio that made Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy and is currently working on PlayStation exclusive Detroit: Become Human, has been accused of having an abusive work environment, according to reports in the French media. A joint investigation by Canard PC, Mediapart and Le Monde spoke to former employees who made accusations about the studio and its head honchos, David Cage and Guillaume de…

Feature: A Mayan what?

Have you played… Fahrenheit (or Indigo Prophecy)?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Let’s play a little game: how much of Fahrenheit (or Indigo Prophecy for US folk) do you remember? I remember: Mopping up blood Having sex in a dirty old train Mixing antibiotics with alcohol and dying alone in my flat

The Internet Did It – The Indigo Prophecy Remastered

Of all the games to remaster, why this? Of all the games to remaster, this, yes, this, of course. What a thing it is, the action-adventure-murder-mystery-conspiracy-everything game we called Fahrenheit back when it was first released in Britain a decade ago, though you over-ponders insisted on calling it The Indigo Prophecy. And what a talking point David Cage/Quantic Dream's 2005 oddity was, back when I…

Wuzza Wuzza: The Nomad Soul Re-Released on GoG

Back before Quantic Dream's David Cage was thoughtlessly proclaiming that only his barely-interactive exercises in ropey story-telling could save the world, he was busily being absolutely, 110% mad as a box of polecats and making gloriously cracked games about parallel worlds and David Bowie. There are a million and one things wrong with Omikron: The Nomad Soul, but its unflinching dedication to doing everything ever,…
