Re: Heavy Rain SPOILERS thread

As the title implies – this should be the thread to talk about anything Heavy Rain that may contain spoilers. Therefore – DO NOT READ THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE BEATEN THE GAME, OR DON'T CARE ABOUT SPOILERS! I feel this is necessary since it is virtually impossible to discuss this game anymore without posting spoilers.
Ok, now that that's out of the way…
First – I liked the ending. Didn't see that one coming. Now I'm playing the game again, and I find that the story doesn't really change at all until you get to Norman Jayden's part with meeting Nathaniel, which is a solid two hours into the game. I'm also trying to kill off all 4 characters to see how the story handles it, and I'm finding it difficult. Even in the fourth trial, Ethan should be full of bullet holes from a shotgun, but instead takes some buck to the back, then the dealer boots him out saying “go die somewhere else”. What the hell? I find myself a little dissapointed with that. So far the only character I've gotten to die is Madison, at Doc Death's place. Really my point here in this thread is regarding trophies though.
Second – Nerd Trophy – Find all clues using ARI (Crime scene + Mad Jack + Fish tank) and find the Origami Killer.
Can anyone help me compile a list of the clues and where they are found to complete this? I thought I found most of them, but its apparently not enough, and this trophy requires an entire playthrough to complete, so it is quite time consuming to do. Also, can anyone confirm that you actually need all the evidence, or just enough that Jayden can solve who the murderer is?
All Endings trophy – How many endings are there, and what needs to be done to see them? Any help here is appreciated. I've found trophy guides, but they say “find all the endings”. Not really much of a guide there, now is it? Rumor has it there's 22 – holy crap – so this brings up my next question…
If you play from a specific chapter, can you take different actions and still earn different endings and trophies, or do you need to replay the entire freaking game everytime?
And final question – unrelated to trophies. Can anyone explain what causes Ethan to black out (is it from his concussion, or something else), and/or why everytime he wakes up he is at Carnaby Corner West? I know this is the location where John Sheppard died, but what relation to Ethan does this have? Is there a scene in the game explaining it that I haven't seen, or is this something just left for us to try and figure out?
You need to scan everything in the ARI Sections of the game.the most common missed ones are the Blue Paint markings of the car behind Mad Jacks Garage and forgetting to pick up the gas receipts and Jayden's Gun in Fish Tank..you dont need to pickup the Killer's Gun in Fish Tank,just analyse it with ARI and you can use it as a clue later on.
For the endings,there are a total of 18,22 if you count the 4 alternate endings out of the original 18.You just need to follow the Perfect Crime path to make it easier.Once you've done that you can backtrack as far as the On The Loose Chapter and it's smooth sailing to the All Endings Trophy.So If you need any help just message me and I'll try and help you out.
As for the last one,I'm baffled on what happens to Ethan when he blacks out.I'm curious on what happens to him in that state.
