Firstly Quantic Dream did a complete motion capture on the girl who acted in the casting, so if her mouth moved like that it's how it moves, I'm sure she can't help it if she talks like that, and you can't smile and talk at the same time, since I do it all the time :\

Secondly Fahrenheit wasn't ugly, ok the graphics weren't the greatest but either were The Nomad Soul's but with Fahrenheit the thing they did best in is movement. And I'm sure they'll make Heavy Rain good, as they haven't failed yet by making a crap game.

So um moo.

I wasn't knocking the game itself or Quantic Dream. I think Quantic Dream are a fantastic developer who is trying to do some different stuff and try some new ideas. I also think the story they came up with for this demo is awesome, and if it see's a release on 360 I'll be sure to pick it up, as I enjoyed Fahrenheit immensely. But whether they are trying new things or not, it doesn't change the fact that visually, Fahrenheit wasn't up to par.

The same can be said of Heavy Rain. To quote general motion capture as the strong suit is fine, but its nothing a PS2 couldn't do. And as far as the motion capture on the girls face goes, then that explains the shoddy mouth animation. The technology really wasn't that impressive in The Nomad Soul (Awesome game by the way) and it doesn't seem to have improved any in the time since. Even the speech in the Final Fantasy movie was hand-animated. Motion capturing the speech wasn't good enough, so they had to go with the more time consuming option.

Quantic Dream like own their own motion capture studio, so I doubt they are ever gonna let it go to waste :P
But I don't understand where you are getting off on saying that visually Fahrenheit was not up to par. Looked fine to me, not the graphics that really matter in a game like that, though I thought that they were stunning.

I just can't be bothered, everyone complains about little things and I doubt most people who complain could do a better job, I love anything Quantic Dream come up with, and I think it looks fine.

And some people do actually show their teeth when they talk, as much as her yes, you should just look at women who aren't exactly what you guys would call hot.
And yes I'm not in the best of moods so don't even bother.
