^We can. :P Amongst other things, it's gone on the back burner for now.

I love what that review from neogaf. Finally, someone who knows what they are talking about. I was very disapointed when E3 nominated it for most disapointing. I can't wait for Downpour.

You guys are slow. The game has already been pirated and one guy even started a walkthrough on YouTube - Link Removed

Yeah, that isn't going to be happening here just yet. Also, mark your spoilers, especially when they're this huge.

Waiting for a legitimate copy to purchase and not watching someone else play through a game qualifies a "slow" now? Man, times have certainly changed.

^Dickishness is completely unnecessary, sk8dima. We want to PLAY this new game, not watch someone play it FOR us. Plus, we don't support activities of dubious legality here.

Nobody wants to get sued out of existence here, you see.

Meanwhile, I'm fairly hopeful. The game LOOKS nice according to some, and it SOUNDS nice by every account. GameInformer has been a little tough on some fairly good games before, and the reviewer may be a little biased if you look closely enough at his review.

All in all, if I don't have the money for it, I'll definitely play it at my friend's house when she buys it. I'm DEFINITELY going to buy the soundtrack for it, though, cause that shit is supposed to be great.

@sk8dima
What the hell? Seriously. :(
I'll be there day one paying full price; happily.
I'm not one to say that new games are cheap. But really, a full-priced game isn't going to break the bank. A little budgeting and patience would yield your desired game, AND support those who developed the game.

I just feel bad for EU. If I had to wait any longer I'd lose it.

Just curious; how much will you be paying for the game where you are? It's listed at EB Games (Australia) for $98 when it comes out next month (Australia is always being screwed over when it comes to games -_- ). As a day one, full price purchase that will definitely break my bank (still between jobs -_- ), even with budgeting and patience (though I'd never resort to pirating :x ).

I heard AU had outrageous game prices.
A new game here is about $65.

^Isn't Italy in the PAL region? Would a copy released this early work on your TV?

PS3 is region free. What's the problem with the tv? I played homecoming USA version and nothing went wrong. Also my tv is a "new gen" tv. Hd ready samsung, 20" LCD.

^Oh, okay. I didn't know whether or not it would work because of disk-to-console-to-TV display issues. Never mind, then. :)

$65? :cry: Yeah, we do have outrageous prices. :x Depending on the game and store, new games can be around $90 - $110. And that's just for a normal copy, not a special edition or anything. I usually just buy online or wait until everything is cheaper due to the ridiculous prices. Even with the difference between the Aussie and US Dollar, it's still cheaper to import (if I remember correctly, the difference isn't that much anyway).

Iv bought about 5 other games that keep getting put on the backburner due to the newest one that comes in, but it looks like Downpour will be putting Alice with the others for a bit. lol
I was more excited for the HD Collection and forgot about Downpour, but I feel it'll be a good game. It'll be great if it turns out to be...well, great.

When you know a game will come down in price (and usually pretty rapidly once the initial excitement has worn off) for some of us it's worth waiting for. It doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the game as long as ASSHATS don't SPOIL IT. Prioritising games into a budget that has to feed people, well, it speaks for itself really, doesn't it? I suppose that contributes towards my lack of enthusiasm. I can wait. I have to.

Slightly OT - I remember new release games in NZ being awfully expensive. When I think back in the day I paid $135 to pre-order FFIX!

Why would you pirate a game? It feels better and more fun to play it on the release day.

Most people do it because it's easier/free, some people do it because they're "testing" a game to see if it's worth buying, some do it because it's not available where they're at so they feel they're validated in pirating, some are doing it because they're young and don't have jobs to pay for it, some do it in protest to business practices, and many other reasons. The most common one is likely the "I'm a pirate, and this is how I get my entertainment."

I personally don't agree with any reasons given (well, except maybe those few games that would essentially have vanished from existence were they not shared), but I digress.

I'm pretty excited. It's sad that spoilers are going around (thankfully it seems we've only had one case of it around here, though). I just dislike people who want to spoil shit. I actually need to finish my pre-order on it...once I get my check. I also liked seeing the achievement/trophy list. That was pretty nice. It gives me an idea of how much playtime there will be, but doesn't give too much away.

"It feels better and more fun to play it on the release day."

The only game I've ever played right on release was Silent Hill: Origins. It certainly didn't change anything about it. I would certainly never buy a console game on release now. Sixty bucks is just too much, especially when it's going to be thirty or twenty in a year or two. Most I've ever payed is forty. I guess the economy needs people to buy stuff right on release, but I can't imagine who these people are. Everything just gets so much cheaper, I find it more alluring to wait.
