Heavy Rain - PlayStation 3 Review

I read about this game long before ever giving it a try.  As someone who had kept up on the reviews and trailers, I had a pretty good idea of what I was getting into.  Quantic Dream thanks you for supporting Interactive Drama, and that is a good way of phrasing it as Heavy Rain has just enough elements to classify it as a game, while truthfully being more of an experience than a contest of you versus console.

Magic: The Gathering, Pure Chess, Mass Effect 3... yup, it was the weekend

Good morning - I sure hope you all had a really nice weekend.  Mine was fairly uneventful - which is not a bad thing at all.  My wife and daughters were out of town since Thursday, leaving my son and I to sit around and kill time how we saw fit.  Generally speaking, that was video games.

One game he and I have both been playing a bit is Pure Chess.
