Loot post time!
Here are a few sweeties I got this week. Nya~m!



Ok, here I have:
- Heavy Rain Collector's Edition (PS3)
- Dante's Inferno (PS3)
- newest K-ON! artbook

Dante's Inferno
Dante's Inferno is a third-person action-adventure game published by Electronic Arts developed by Visceral Games (formerly EA Redwood Shores). The game is loosely inspired by Inferno, the first book of Dante Alighieri's epic poem, The Divine Comedy.
I won't say it's the best game ever, but if you enjoyed DMC and similar stuff, you may also find this one quite engrossing.

Heavy Rain
A city on the US east coast is being terrorised by the ‘Origami Killer’, whos victims are all discovered drowned, four days after they go missing. Seemingly the only clues: an origami figure and an orchid, discovered on each of their bodies.
The public is gripped by fear and paranoia. The authorities seem no closer to a credible suspect. And now another potential victim has disappeared. As the clock ticks amidst and anxiety, four very different people are drawn into the investigation - each following their own leads in a desperate search for Shaun.
Each of them knows what the cost will be if they don’t reach him in time - and they will soon be forced to ask themselves just how far they are prepared to go…
In Heavy Rain you don’t watch the story – you play it. The dynamic narrative unfolds through the players actions - not cut scenes - and every action has a consequence. The choices you make and the way you interact with other characters have repercussions throughout the storyline. With unprecedented responsibility over the fates of the game’s characters, players will find Heavy Rain an emotional experience unlike any other. It dares to tackle subject matter and themes rarely touched upon in video games, making it a genuinely mature game for a new world of adult gamers.


The collector's edition includes cute box (it looks like it's been rained on), colored pamphlet, small origami and some downloadable content: episode 1 of the Heavy Rain Chronicles, the game's soundtrack and a dynamic XMB.

The beginning of the game gave me a laugh. Is it a simulator of man or what? They even ask you to dry a naked guy with a towel, yuk! But after the training part ends, the game becomes dark and quite harrowing.




It's not a victim's hand, it's mine, don't worry.





K-ON! super illustrations book
An ordinary one, nothing special. In fact, I think there is not enough art in it for its 120 pages. I really don't like this thing when, you know, they print the art only on one page of the spread. So, this book contains about 60 pictures. Part of them are the official art-works which were already used in manga and manga related magazines. The other 40 illustrations are done by different artists and honestly I can't name them gorgeous. A couple of them are pretty cute, for example I really like those with Ritsu you can see below; but several are close to monstrous - like this Mio I uploaded as well.














This super illustration isn't super at all in my opinion.



The book also includes a big poster with Mio on one side and Yui on the other.

Not sure if I'll pick up either of those games. Heavy Rain does seem interesting, though. I watched the review for it on GameTrailers. Those every-day-life training events looked pretty amusing. I like the part when they had to make the guy drink orange juice or something. XD
I think I'll go ahead and watched the Dante's Inferno review too just because there aren't many games on PS3 that automatically peak my interest.

Sorry about the K-ON! artbook. It does look rather disappointing from what you posted. The first picture of Ritsu at her drums is easily my favorite from what you shared. Everything else looks decent at best. Though I'm not really a big enough fan of the series to buy any artbooks. =P

Yeah, I'll probably present this book to one of my friends if I have a chance. Dante's Inferno also went to Vallefor since he's a huge fan of DMC gameplay and I don't have much time now anyways. Well, I can enjoy Heavy Rain at least :)

Yeah, I watched the Dante's Inferno review. Didn't get very high marks and didn't really look like my kind of game. But it's okay. White Knight Chronicles, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, and Final Fantasy XIII are all either just released or coming very soon so I'll be fine with video games for a while. I'm finally getting more JRPG's on my PS3!! ^_^

Yeaaaah! We'll finally have some real JRPGs for PS3! :D Though I feel a lil worried sice I've read several unpleasant previews of White Knight and Star Ocean. I'll probably wait a bit until some reviews appear. Also look forward for your opinion if you're buying them.

I watched the GT review of White Knight Chronicles. It's wasn't a glowing review, they had some negative things to say about it, but they also had some positive points. I think I'll enjoy the game. I'm not too hard to please with JRPG's. They didn't have a review of Star Ocean, though. But just the fact that the US (International) release includes the original Japanese voice overs makes it an automatic buy for me. I've also heard some mixed reviews of FFXIII, but nothing can deter me from buying that game. XD

I'll try to post reviews when I get some good play time in, though with my move and such that probably won't be until sometime in April at the earliest. ^_^"

On the video game front, I've already picked up Heavy Rain (used a gift card that one of my brothers gave me for Xmas), and I have Dante's Inferno coming by post within the next week.

As for the K-On art book, after seeing the picture of Yui and Mio in bikini's, all I have to say is "Yui's got a nice ass." :P

What's your opinion on Heavy Rain?
Btw, if you come across a good game, make a small post. Don't let us miss something cute ;)

So far, I'm only up to the part of the game that introduces the fourth playable character.

As for the game itself, it definitely appears to be one of the more innovative games this year, with the game being very different from most video games that are currently out in the market. Hopefully, I'll find more time to play the game (which could be a challenge, given how Dante's Inferno is supposed to come via the post in the next couple of days, and there's a number of interesting games coming out in March).

I guess I'm just a bit ahead of you. Yeah, amusing one and not very difficult to play. I'm definitely going to complete it.

Yeah, there is significant difference between manga and anime style. I like both though.
