Getting all the shards was hands down my proudest trophy ever....what a bitch! Have plat for 1&2 and 100% for Festival of Blood. Love the series. Infamous, Metal Gear and Portal are my favorite IPs of all time.

Im only missing ONE damn blast shard to get my plat trophy. I LOVE infamous one, but I FUCKING HATE IT!!!!!!!!

Every couple of months i pick it up and ROAM the map looking at every square intch and i can never find it...then i give up for a few more months and try again .... lol Im due for a 2013 blast shard hunt.

Not sure which inFamous you're stuck on, but the Blast Shard radar doesn't detect blast shards that are too high. So sometimes you have to find the tallest building and climb to the top *wink*wink*.


The inFamous games remain, to this day, as my only two platinum trophies. The most fun open world I've ever played. Love it.

I wasn't expecting any of what I saw to be gameplay, I will be very impressed if they can pull that kind of stuff off in a 'first-wave' game.

If the early first year games look any where near as good as Second Son and Deep Down then we will be in store for an amazing next generation
Studio-YaMi  +   958d ago
I meant to hit agree but pushed the disagree button,sorry Chaostar. :(

And I totally agree with you !
Chaostar  +   958d ago
Not a problem, it happens :)

On topic elaboration:

I was particularly impressed with the particle and fire effects.

I wonder why he has a Blades of Olympus/Chaos/whatever style chain on one arm.

Gameplay? Wow, I couldn't tell which is which.

Also in the very begging at the NWO checkpoint before the pan out to a security monitor that looked real time as well.
SuperM  +   958d ago
I think it was all real time but some of it obviously werent gameplay. The graphics was consistent so i dont think they add any effects for cutscenes
Y_5150  +   958d ago
Like inFAMOUS 2. The cutscenes was in-game. this game would do the same I think.
GiantFriendlyCrab  +   958d ago
if you watch the HD video, you will not have any doubt that this was in fact ingame. But not so much gameplay though
ginsunuva  +   958d ago
That attack with the chain definitely looked like gameplay animation.
MasterCornholio  +   958d ago
And the scene with the checkpoint.
Dante112  +   958d ago
Mind blown. Buying a Ps4 day one.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   958d ago
that was gameplay, no way, mind fucking blown, i cant believe that, there is no way that was gameplay, thats just amazing, it looked just like a cutscene.
abzdine  +   958d ago
inFamous 2 was extremely impressive already so i'm not surprised the trailer they showed was gameplay
baldulf  +   958d ago
No gameplay in the literal term but with the game assets.

The trailer was done with the game engine. Maybe there would be a bit of downgrade in the actual game. Just like the difference between Uncharted cinematics and gameplay (that is, a bit but not much)
MariaHelFutura  +   958d ago
Either way. This is beyond impressive.
Bathyj  +   958d ago
thats not what he says. he says its gameplay with a different camera to make it more cinematic

Bad example with Uncharted..lol
Baka-akaB  +   958d ago
Bad example . Uncharted is embellished in cutscenes , they are telling you the fighting scenes of Infamous 2nd son are exactly as is it , minus the camera angles

baldulf  +   958d ago
All I say is that there could be a bit of downgrade on things like lighting and shadows (this is normal in almost every game that does its cinematics on real time). Animations, models and backgrounds would be the same as seen on trailer.

I kinda agree with you but they(sucker punch) said directly and I quote :

"what did you think most of that was... we just used different camera to make it more cinematic."

They said that "most" of the footage shown WAS actually gameplay but with different camera angles,so that alone is something to be excited about ! :D
bunt-custardly  +   958d ago
I think developers will say any sort of cryptic crap to whet the pants off people watching right now. If they wanted to show actual gameplay, then like Killzone, or the other games, they could have done so. None of the trailer looked remotely like "gameplay" at all dramatic camera angles or otherwise. I wish developers would cut the crap and stop patronizing gamers.

Watching a cutscene using in-game assets does not equal GAMEPLAY.

Except he specifially tells you it had gameplay with other cameras .

And sucker punch has yet to lie about the infamous series when it comes to graphical perfs .

I dont even see why the skepticism , it's consistant with was was shown so far for the ps4 , in gameplay scenes as well as in real time rendered sequences

bunt-custardly  +   958d ago
It's like an oxymoron though. You can't say it's gameplay with changed camera angles to make it look more dramatic. Then, by definition it's not gameplay be4cause it won't play like that in reality.

I'm talking "gameplay here" not graphics engine just to be clear. The title of this article is about gameplay not graphics.

Sounds more like you are playing on semantics . What matters and what he is saying , is that it got gameplay sequence with a different viewpoint for presentation purposes . Not that different from a racing game letting you switch through multiple cameras .

If true , it doesnt remove or change effects , lightning texturing or whatever , and doesnt performs tricks the game can't handle in normal sequence .

he is just reassuring people about the game precisely on a tech related level
Qrphe  +   958d ago
It all looked in-game from the beginning to me.
tigertron  +   958d ago
I love Infamous 1 and I have Infamous 2 via PS Plus but I have yet to download it, so I'll probably do so this week.
Campy da Camper  +   958d ago
Son, say goodbye to the next 50 hours of your life! Its that good.
SpinalRemains138  +   958d ago
I love me some InFamous.

Running around as electric man and deciding how to upgrade your powers is so dam awesome.
When I discovered and mastered the lightning tether toward the end of InF 2, I must have spent 10 hours just using it and slaying baddies in creative ways.

This game looks really badass.
stefan771  +   958d ago
This will be one of the first PS4 games I buy
MRMagoo123  +   957d ago
we can all just agree ps4 is day one and that is that, im getting excited like a 12 year old school girl seeing justin beiber.
Kennytaur  +   957d ago
And this is an open world game? Colour me impressed.
thawind  +   957d ago
My happiness just reached new heights Day 1 buy.
