The Reverend's Rants: Heavy Rain

Today's episode is about the video game and interactive drama, Heavy Rain. I thought we could use a more lighthearted (I'm not sure that's an appropriate descriptor, Heavy Rain is quite the sad game.) rant today.

I wanted to also share some pics of the characters in the game.

Ethan Mars. He lost one son to a car accident, and his other son has been taken by the Origami Killer.

Scott Shelby. Private detective hired by the Origami Killer's previous victim's families to track the killer down.

Norman Jayden. FBI agent with addiction problems brought in to help solve the case of the Origami Killer.

Madison Paige. Journalist and insomniac, she is trying to put her fears to rest and track down the killer.

Thanks for listening. Please feel free to email me with questions, comments, or concerns at


  1. Really sounds good! It's amazing to me that video games are getting better at emotionally reaching it's audience than Hollywood does! I wish I had more time for PS3! Maybe sometime I could hop on over and and see how cool this is!?!?

    That is if your girlfriend doesn't completely hate me yet.....

  2. It is amazing what they have been able to accomplish in the last few years of video gaming. Another really good one I will probably review is red Dead Redemption, that one choked me up quite a bit too.

    Of course you can come check this out! It really is fun and immersive, and has a few different difficulty settings so it's accessible to gamers and non-gamers alike. Cori doesn't hate you at all, hahaha!

  3. Will this be the zombie version of Red Dead, cause talk about emotional.... ha ha!
