        Just played TW12 for a couple hours and after not playing the franchise since '07, I really like what I am seeing. The putting is tough as hell at first but I can definitely see the potential in the way they do it now. I wish it was a little more easy to get rid of the caddy (or at least modify his suggestion more easily so you dont have to totally re-plan your shot if you don't like where he says to hit it)

        The career mode is RPGish just like I remember except with way more options as far as tuning your golfer. Should definitely get my $30 worth to play on rainy days when I can't actually go golfing.

        • Started another Heavy Rain playthrough. First one on my 1080p tv. Yet again another game that doesnt look as good on 1080. Like most games, it's native to 720. It displays at 720 on the tv as well, but there is considerable grain, which I tend to see a lot in video games, now that I got this new tv. Even if the tv is scaled back to 720. Luckily, I found a way to minimize the grain through some site online. It does suck...720p tvs are still the way to go for gaming, until the game industry catches up with native 1080p games, instead of just 1080 "compatible". Otherwise, it's still a lot of fuzzy images and ugly textures playing on a higher resolution.

          My experience since getting a giant 1080p tv for gaming...hasnt been the greatest.

          But yeah, the game is still fun as ever and now that the grain isnt as noticeable...I'm having fun with it.

          • I have a 42" 1080p TV and games look great, but it has a "video game" mode. Plus 42" is not giant, maybe a 50"+ TV would look bad, I don't know. It looks way better than my old 720p TV for games.

            • I have the same size...not "giant" but much bigger than my last tv. In my experience, nearly every game I own looks better on the 720p tv I had. Stretched out textures, screen tearing, and just other weird graphical issues become much more noticeable on this tv. Heck, Drake's shirt in Uncharted 2 looks painted on and fuzzy on this tv. I've def. run into more issues with 360 games, however. Although, I havent revisted a lot of my PS3 games since getting this tv. The downscaling to 720 on these games just isnt as optimal as having a native 720p tv for some reason.

              It's a pretty common problem for a lot of people that have upgraded to 1080. A lot of that can really have to do with the tv you have, also.

              I will say this, though...Heavy Rain still looks gorgeous, but there is this weird grain that just wasnt there on my previous tv. It looks like heavy film grain, but it's just weird that it wasnt there on my last tv.

              • What kind of TV is it? Mine is a Visio and I have no graininess or anything like that.

                • Tis a Sony Bravia.

                  Some games just look ugly on a 1080p tv. I wouldnt call this matter with Heavy Rain a bad one, though. Other games like Alan Wake, the original Mass Effect, GTA, etc....there has been some ugliness. It's really on a game to game basis...some look great, a lot of them look pretty poor in comparison. Its been disappointing in a lot of cases.

                  Thanks BoneKrusher^

                    • Agreed. Looks like my Heavy Rain problems are over at least. Since getting past a certain part, looks like all that grain is gone. Maybe it was just for the opening sequences? I sure as hell dont remember that, though. Everything looked fuzzy for a while, there. The vivid colors from the mall, did not stand out at all, this time around. And I remember them distinctly from my last playthrough, especially that colorful ass clown. But at least I'm having no problems now.

                      Gotta say...the use of real american money is amazing. lol. Something you never see. I love seeing a $5 dollar bill, that actually looks like a real $5 bill. Lincoln and all. That's just cool to me.

                        • They said it would be back by May 4th. Obviously that's not the case. I don't think anyone could tell you the right answer.

                          **** sucks, it cost me 2 prestiges on COD.

                                I remember something like that for the opening part with mine as well if I recall correctly. I have a 50" Samsung Plasma 1080p. I started off with just the standard cables at first before I got high def cables. The difference is worlds apart. If you do not have high def cables get them now. My tv looks so amazing with anything I play its unreal.

                                •Sony has been the victim of a very carefully planned, very professional, highly sophisticated criminal cyber attack.
                                •We discovered that the intruders had planted a file on one of our Sony Online Entertainment servers named “Anonymous” with the words “We are Legion.”
                                •By April 25, forensic teams were able to confirm the scope of the personal data they believed had been taken, and could not rule out whether credit card information had been accessed. On April 26, we notified customers of those facts.
                                •As of today, the major credit card companies have not reported any fraudulent transactions that they believe are the direct result of this cyber attack.
                                •Protecting individuals’ personal data is the highestpriority and ensuring that the Internet can be made secure for commerce is also essential. Worldwide, countries and businesses will have to come together to ensure the safety of commerce over the Internet and find ways to combat cybercrime and cyber terrorism.
                                •We are taking a number of steps to prevent future breaches, including enhanced levels of data protection and encryption; enhanced ability to detect software intrusions, unauthorized access and unusual activity patterns; additional firewalls; establishment of a new data center in an undisclosed location with increased security; and the naming of a new Chief Information Security Officer.
