Until index learns a little empathy, these things will happen over and over and over. The boy just can't understand that other's can have entirely valid points of view that differ to his.

Heavenly Sword has to be one of the most best storyline based game EVER.



Why, just because you liked it? And you gotta make the distinction between the STORY, and the GAME. The story's been reviewed well enough, but the GAME is apparently way too short, so overall it hasn't rated as highly as it could have.

Sure, rating and critics scores are just opinions too :-)

Simple reason, the Heavenly Sword was delivered by a mortal man from the heavens and he destroyed the raven king. After that, the mortal man vanished leaving other races to grab the sword and use its power until a CLAN stole it and protected it form any using it until the KING RAVEN returned to claim it.

Also, there was meant to be a mortal man ready to use this sword once again but a girl was born instead making her the only one to use it.

See.



Glad you like it mate, but that description makes it sound like pure dross, more holes than swiss cheese in that one.

I prefer Morrowind :-)

So ... any predictions as to when PS3 will drop to $250 or less? I think it's reasonable that some worthwhile (read: HDD included) iteration of the 360 will reach that price by the end of 2009, maybe mid 2010.

...which would suck as not only will I be unable to resist getting one, but that's the year I go back to Uni.

Should I bother reading through this thread, or are the last couple of pages enough to get the gist?

I can actually explain why the story is short :)

The reasons why are,

*Heavenly Sword was more of a cinematic game which brings in the fact that this game is movie quality.

*They made it short becuase people or the 'Player' is far way to obsessed with the story so that gave them the encouragement to make a squeal.

I hope, they make more becuase the story was absolutely brilliant and the scenes where superb with calming music.

Look.

I have been having a rough time lately, been working and have not had days off for 3 months now. I have just been told I have 2 days off and I am in a very happy mood.

I apologies to all that I had a massive out take on :)

Just been said that the 160GB will not have any flash card readers :S Dang, they better have 4x USB ports. Other than that, pretty decent.

Apparently having a life beyond games makes you not a gamer.

Apparently defending poor choices allows one to be excessively belligerent and to assume a superior posture.

It's a text book ways people respond in arguments: escalate and defend your poor position more voiceferously and aggressively in the hope people will simply lose the will to continue or admit you're arguing an untenable position and acknowledge the other person's point of view.

Doing the latter requires empathy. index is certainly not the first or last teenager to lack in that area.

True..

I am the sort of gamer that gets really interested in the story. If I see a good story (eg. Heavenly Sword, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune and MGS4) I get really attached to the game.

PS:

I clocked HS, epic game. I hope they make another, the ending was sad.

Was the game much different to the demo? Because I thought that was complete arse. And yes, I realise the full game is longer.

You played the Mission where you rescue her father.

Its only at the beginning of the game from the demo.

Not much different but everything is all fixed up from the demo such as glitches and things that still needed to be patched up. Other than that Heavenly Sword is the greatest game of our time.

Just check out my videos in my sig, that will get your eyes rolling back :)

lol, the greatest game of our time you say? To be honest I didnt get past the first battle before I wanted to chuck the controller but then again I didnt give it much of a chance. Metacritic tallies its reviews up to 79 which seems about right.

Anyway, glad you enjoyed it.

Dam right I enjoyed it.

I enjoyed it that much I can't get it out of my head and that's why I am starting the Heavenly Sword 2 Campaign.
