Her Name is Ed Wilson

Thoughts, Anyone?

Do you ever look too long at the carving knife while slicing the Thanksgiving turkey?

Have you memorized all the vicitms Dexter killed and exactly in what order?

Do you like to build spice racks?

Well, I have the DLC for you! According to gamersmint.com, the developer  Quantic Dream has announced downloadable content  (DLC) for the upcoming release Heavy Rain. In this DLC you will be able to prowl as the “Origami Killer.” I’m not one for censorship, but this game sounds like it’s making a case for the dreaded “AO” rating. Until now, the only news I’ve heard about Heavy rain is the racy scenes featuring female officer in well, “all her glory.” I’m more interested in seeing how this release plays out. If it does just fly under the radar then perhaps the Entertainment Software and Ratings Board (ESRB) has relented somewhat with the success of the Grand Theft Auto DLC and series as a whole.

Even more interesting is that there may be a burgeoning market for mature themed video games as Heavy Rain in more focused on the player experiencing a noir narrative than combo chains or character leveling.

Only time will tell.

Heavy Rain drops   on PS3 February 23 2010.

-e.d.w.

UPDATE:

Apparently, the game already has been rated M. I’m guessing for the North American version they censored much of the nudity.
