David Cage’s Detroit: Become Human wants to talk about difficult questions. The game from Cage’s studio Quantic Dream, is a story of android prejudice and rebellion touches upon questions of the soul and the nature of being. But Detroit is also a bloated action movie romp. One sequence, a series in a pattern for Cage,…
One moment, you’re on top of the world, the next, completely helpless. Weaponless, defenseless, and pretty much helpless. Last time, we talked about nine games that took away all our weapons. This time, we talk about nine more games that stripped us of all resistance.
Every David Cage game is an experience, from the eerie Indigo Prophecy to the twisted murder mystery of Heavy Rain and the flawed but ambitious Beyond: Two Souls.
In preparation for the upcoming narrative game Detroit, I’ve been streaming David Cage’s 2010 crime thriller Heavy Rain over the last two weeks on Kotaku’s Twitch channel. Last night, we reached the game’s most iconic and brutal scene.
The PS4 re-release of Beyond: Two Souls will be out next week, Sony says. It’ll be $30 and come with a few new features, including an option to replay the game in chronological order. Also, Heavy Rain’s coming to PS4 on March 1.
I like to think I’m not a superficial person. (So do we all.) I’m not technically-minded, so conversations about frame-rates and resolution et cetera sort of float by me.
At 6:10pm ET, Amazon will knock the prices of game of the year contender The Last of Us and Quantic Dream's latest game, Beyond Two Souls, down to $25 each. This matches the best doorbuster prices we've gotten wind of, and if the speed at which Amazon's other lightning deals have disappeared thus far is any…
While YouTube comments are infamous for being crappy, and while Beyond: Two Souls is kind of an unconventional game, watching these absurd reactions to a Beyond trailer is still rather cringe-worthy. The things people say, man.
Quantic Dream, the studio behind Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, are about as polarising as a developer gets. Some people hate their games. Some people love them! I'd like to think there's one aspect of their output we can all get behind, though: the way they include some of the world's best animation shorts in…
It was only a matter of time before the lovable punks at Mega 64 took on Beyond: Two Souls for some real-world mockery. And lo, they have done so, and it's pretty funny. Guess what: people don't appreciate it when a dude with a camera goes around knocking crap over.
The Ellen Page-starring movie/game hybrid Beyond: Two Souls was often as much fun to watch as it was to play. And now, thanks to Gamebillstudio, you can go ahead and watch the whole thing, even if you don't own a PS3.
If there's one thing we can count on, it's that some people are interested in seeing naked character models—this is true regardless of the game. In a sense, you could say there was a metaphorical timer starting the second that David Cage's latest game, Beyond: Two Souls, which stars popular actress Ellen Page, was …
Hopefully you could tell from my decidedly mixed review of Beyond: Two Souls whether or not the game is for you. And if it is for you, a piece of advice: Consider bringing a friend.
Sure, video games these days can simulate hyper-realistic alien murder, but what about the life of a young actress? Ellen Page Simulator 2014 hopes to do exactly that, letting you shape the Canadian starlet's personality, from what dolls she chooses to play with to working up the courage for her first kiss.
A game made by David Cage is not like most games. First of all, they might star folks like Ellen Page. And second of all, they usually require you to do some surprising stuff—some of which hit the right notes, and some of which really miss the mark.
In Beyond: Two Souls, you‘ll do some things you rarely get to do in video games. You’ll control a young, frightened girl as she hugs a stuffed animal and tries to fend off nightmares. You’ll decide whether to accept beer at an awkward high-school party, and you'll try to pick music that’ll impress a group of older,…
It began with an idea. David Cage sits at his desk, but he can’t write. He looks for an image. He can’t remember the words he types into the search engine but, before he knows it, on his screen, a photograph of the actress Ellen Page. A funeral, a single idea and pictures of Ellen Page. “This,” says David Cage, “is…
The European version of upcoming PS3 exclusive Beyond: Two Souls is going to be a little bit different from the American edition, after slight cuts had to be made to get it under an adults-only rating.
Which shouldn't surprise you. It's not like Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain were a laugh-a-minute. But there's something all this concept art from the game that just bums me out.
It’s tough to be the father of a gamer when you aren’t a gamer yourself. Sometimes it’s best to just ask people in the know — especially on live TV.
