Willem Dafoe is acting opposite Ellen Page in the videogame 'Beyond: Two Souls'

Remember last summer, when auteurist videogame designer David Cage revealed that he was working on Beyond: Two Souls, a game starring Ellen Page? Turns out Page isn’t the only Oscar-nominated actor involved in Beyond. Cage’s studio Quantic Dream revealed this morning that beloved crazy-eyed psychotic Willem Dafoe will also appear in the game. Dafoe plays Nathan Dawkins, a researcher who meets Ellen Page’s character as a little girl and apparently reappears later in her life. Based on the reveal trailer, it looks like Dafoe is playing a combination of Donald Pleasence from Halloween and Lorraine Bracco from The Sopranos.

kinda excited for this game!
aerilupus 2nd-Mar-2013 04:01 am (UTC)
I'm so excited for this game, especially after attending the SDCC panel for it, but ahhhh I don't have a PS3.

Now that the PS4 is announced... do I... do I wait?
antpantsss 2nd-Mar-2013 04:37 am (UTC)
Wait for a PS4. There's no point buying a PS3, buying this awesome looking game and then having to buy it again to play it on your PS4.
prettywitch 2nd-Mar-2013 02:45 pm (UTC)
I'm not getting a PS4 because it's not gonna be backwards compatible and they can fuck off with that noise.
kristinkat 2nd-Mar-2013 04:02 am (UTC)
so..what is this about
wigsnatcher 2nd-Mar-2013 04:14 am (UTC)
Ellen page is like possessed by this spirit and she lets it out to deal damage to people who are trying to fuck her over
bluntbitchqueen 2nd-Mar-2013 04:10 am (UTC)
excited but worried it might be all this cool awesomeness behind the scenes stuff for what turns out to be a shitty game.
mana_runigha 2nd-Mar-2013 04:21 am (UTC)
Knowing Quantic Dream, it will start to be interesting and then falls apart towards the end. They always have a great concept, but can't quite figure out how to end it
voyevoda 2nd-Mar-2013 04:10 am (UTC)
I remember the one Bond game that had all the characters modeled on their voice actors, and Dafoe was the villain.

Good times.

That was a good Bond game. :D

i found $75 that i never spent and i'm trying to figure out what games to get with it

i was thinking maybe Journey and The Walking Dead?

or maybe Kirby's Return to Dreamland or something i dunno help me out i can't decide
mana_runigha 2nd-Mar-2013 04:21 am (UTC)
You can't go wrong with Journey and The Walking Dead. They were the top games last year for a reason!!
ahzuri 2nd-Mar-2013 06:21 am (UTC)
I've heard Journey is awesome and I know The Walking Dead (the Telltell ones right?) are awesome.

I actually heard someone whistling the Kirby theme in the lunch room today.
sunleth 2nd-Mar-2013 07:28 am (UTC)
I think both Journey and Walking Dead are on discount on the PlayStation Store right now!
wigsnatcher 2nd-Mar-2013 07:41 pm (UTC)
thank you sooo much i just bought them both this morning <3 together they were $24 what a good deal
sunleth 2nd-Mar-2013 11:41 pm (UTC)
Glad I could help! :)
catatlas 2nd-Mar-2013 07:38 am (UTC)
Journey is incredible.
you should get Ni No Kuni too, best jrpg I've played in yearsssssss
beemo 2nd-Mar-2013 03:59 pm (UTC)
journey made me cry. fuck that game

courtkneee1 2nd-Mar-2013 04:17 am (UTC)
YESSS so excited for this one...i am all over the atypical genre type games
hazel_belle 2nd-Mar-2013 04:23 am (UTC)
I am so looking forward to this, because they did a damn good job of the characters looking like their actors
eerilybeloved 2nd-Mar-2013 04:30 am (UTC)
I hope this means the voice acting is going to be overall significantly better this time around. I loved Heavy Rain, but some of the voice acting ruined moments in the game.
beemo 2nd-Mar-2013 04:01 pm (UTC)
i played the demo and the voices were so distracting! why do these people have french accents?!
antpantsss 2nd-Mar-2013 04:39 am (UTC)
Heavy Rain was genuinely one of the best games I ever played but it has the worst replay value ever. I hope this game is better.
catatlas 2nd-Mar-2013 07:37 am (UTC)
what! I replayed that shit so many times to unlock all the endings lol
antpantsss 2nd-Mar-2013 07:40 am (UTC)
I couldn't replay it knowing who the killer was
kingsmere 2nd-Mar-2013 03:50 pm (UTC)
Same. For me, though, it's not because I know the biggest mystery of the game already, but because it really broke my heart that the killer was Shelby.
smelltheflowers 2nd-Mar-2013 05:17 am (UTC)
Really looking forward to this!

This is a little off topic, but I need a sequel to L.A. Noire immediately. There are only so many times I can complete it to 100%. I absolutely adore it, and would love to see them do something similar, perhaps set in another iconic setting like New York, either in the same time period or an entirely different one.
ahzuri 2nd-Mar-2013 06:22 am (UTC)
I really really really need to finish that game lol
soldoutmatinee 2nd-Mar-2013 05:30 am (UTC)
omg i'm more interested in lorraine bracco being in it too
cyberghostface 2nd-Mar-2013 05:58 am (UTC)
I don't think she is, they were just comparing Dafoe's character to her.
soldoutmatinee 2nd-Mar-2013 06:07 am (UTC)
lmao oops. apparently reading comprehension goes out the door when i get excited like that. thanks for clarifying <3
ahzuri 2nd-Mar-2013 06:24 am (UTC)
I want this game so much, I've been a fan of all of their games thus far. Indigo Prophesy ending was weird to say the least (and I didn't care for it) but beyond that I love the style of the games they put out.

cannot wait!!!!looks terrifying and i am hft
catatlas 2nd-Mar-2013 07:36 am (UTC)
so excited for this game!!! Heavy Rain is one of my favorite games of the PS3 generation.
cordyceps 2nd-Mar-2013 08:53 am (UTC)
heavy rain was such a m e s s but looking forward to this game because even with their flaws they are interesting developers
kingsmere 2nd-Mar-2013 03:52 pm (UTC)
I really enjoyed playing Heavy Rain but looking back now I realize it was sloppy in a lot of ways.
uhnothanks 2nd-Mar-2013 01:20 pm (UTC)
Does anyone remember the game Ripper? Christopher Walken and a bunch of other famous people were in it in 1996. I feel like it was streets ahead.
mjspice 2nd-Mar-2013 06:48 pm (UTC)
Well dang.
