New trailer is up if you haven't seen it yet:

While it does look amazingly awesome, I hope it has more replay value than shuffling the timed-button presses.

Have you played the developer's last game, Indigo Prophecy aka Fahrenheit? I'd say about 50 % of the game, or more is timed button pressing.

I still mourn the death of the adventure game (fucking gamers and their low attention spans) so anytime one of these games comes out, I'm stoked...even if it involves pointless button mashing.

Indigo Prophecy was fucking incredible!

This may actually be the game that convinces me to -want- a PS3. So far, I've had absolutely no reason to even entertain the notion, but damn...I'm a sucker for Cage. As flawed as Indigo Prophecy was, the fact that he wrote and published a post-mortem on the project candidly describing what went right and what went wrong earned a -vast- amount of intellectual currency with me. You get this with movies pretty frequently, but virtually never with games.

Where can I read this? I'd love to know the ins and outs of that game.

I watched my bro play Indigo, and yeah, it was all sorts of cool. I won't mind playing through the first time, but I'm hoping that there's an incentive for multiple playthroughs.
