New Video Game Releases: Feb. 22nd – Feb. 26th, 2010

All eyes on the PS3 this week as a game that the Sony’s been talking about since the announcement of the console is set to drop on Tuesday.

Heavy Rain is an interactive murder mystery from Quantum Dream, the company behind the sleeper hit Indigo Prophecy for the original Xbox and PS2.  The game has strikingly real graphics, concerns itself with the banalities of everyday life (eating breakfast and showering – yay), and is about the closest thing to living out an episode of CSI or David Fincher’s Se7en as you are gonna get… umm… unless you’re either a homicide detective or the victim of violent crime that is, in which both cases it will probably be no fun for you and you’ll want to steer clear.  But if you’re an armchair private eye like I like to fancy myself, happy sleuthing awaits.
