    Never played Heavy Rain and even with the capabilities to do so I'm still a bit weary on it. Not sure if it's my type of game but I'll probably pick it up some day.

    Still, the guy seemed quite talented and it's a shame he was taken so early, especially mid-production of Beyond.

    I loved the heck out of Heavy Rain, especially the music. He'll be sorely missed.

    Just what I was going to say. Heavy Rain was and is one of the few games that really made me exited in ways that other games haven't been able to do. While the game itself was good, I've come to notice that the key features in bringing the excellence out of the game is actually the soundtrack and the atmosphere it creates between the different parts of the game.

    R.I.P. Normand.

    RIP Mr. Corbeal.
    I never played Heavy Rain, but I mean to do so.

    His work on the soundtrack seems amazing though, after a quick google.

    Shame that he left so young.

    Oh... I was listening to the soundtrack yesterday.

    R.I.P Your music made Heavy Rain what it is, since the music sets the mood.

    While Heavy Rain never got me too deeply interested in itself, the music was definitely quite good. Sad to hear this news.

    RIP
