I’d like to finish Heavy Rain this weekend. I got completely sucked in Friday night and ended up playing until 5am. It does a lot of things terribly wrong, but it’s just so goddamn novel to be consuming a real story with a game controller in my hand.

I know I’m super late to the party, but I sort of like it that way. There’s no noise. It’s just me and the game. I suppose I might regret missing out on the conversation when I finish the game though, since I’ll definitely have words to write.

I’m taking a break from RDR until Amazon delivers my HDMI cable on Monday or Tuesday. The screen flickers to black every few minutes on my 360, and sometimes the interval drops to every few seconds. It’s really frustrating, but it only happens on component cables. Composite was fine. Hopefully, HDMI clears up the issue.
