Gamers-Association editor Ridge Dermody was very excited after the reveal of Infamous:Second Son. Now after more details have emerged he isn't so sure.
The InFamous series is written like a comic, so really anything is possible as long as it can be imagined. So last week when I commented on Cole still being alive (and I thought Delsin's underwear was sticking out the back of his pants? It was his shirt but man that thread got ugly. LOL) it is still possible because in some universe Kessler is in fact alive. How cool would it be to fight Kessler in InFamous Second Son?
LOL i remember you LOL
now that I think of it, who knows how many times kessler had to rewrite the past (or future?) to get to the events of infamous 1 and 2. but this theory could lead to a multiverse like zelda or something, i rather have single chronological timeline.
I don't care if it turns out that the first two games were dreams. I just want to play Infamous: Second Son.
yeah I just want to use smoke powers. That sounds incredible.
Aw shit, i'm gonna miss firing lightning strikes :(
I think people are over reacting a little to the retcon. In truth we will not find out the full story until we complete the game and honestly, I prefer it that way. I don't want every little detail storywise revealed before release as that would ruin everything. I think people want to know too much rather than waiting these days and would rather speculate on a trailer and one article as they have nothing better to do.
New Engine new powers and a team that have a proven track record on creating a stellar game... And this guy isn't happy with it? Please! You know what I'm unhappy about? Next gen games marketed as next gen games but using old previous gen engines from 2006 with minor graphics tweaks. But hey...
"Cole’s body was, so fans did have hope he survived." Exactly...why put it in if your going to come out to say "Yeah he's dead". If they wanted to make a new character then fine, I'm totaly with that, I'm glad it has a subtitle but they could easily done it during the same time frame of inFAMOUS or during inFAMOUS 2. Least then they could of done as many characters as they wanted in different cities all over the world. I mean they could of easily explain Cole being alive....I guess with him activating it he wasn't affected that much If they were going to make it take place in the future Cole should of woke up after "recharing" since he was a powerful conduit, acquire some new powers some way for gameplay purposes and started to see how the events of the Beast has changed humanity with the government taking drastic plans against conduits. Zeke would be older and probably more mature and would help you out to take the corrupted like government down after they still see you as a threat. I suppose you could do it so in the end the big twist is that this is in fact an alternative universe or time line which may seem like it continues from inFAMOUS 2 but in fact it isn't. The article has it right though, it dosen't make sense. If this game took place in London for example half way around the world then fair enough the RFI blast might not of killed all conduits round there. "but I’m pretty sure those tribesmen were in Africa, which is further away than Seattle. So how did Delsin dodge the RFI’s affects when it got to people in Africa? I don’t like this at all" So true
LOL the disagrees Yeah sorry to speak the truth about the game but inFAMOUS is a comic book like story driven game. If it has continuity errors they messed up....why can't people admit this when it comes to a high up developer, everyone makes mistakes. This is why some great studios over the years have turned to crap....because we turn our head the other way when they doing something wrong, over and over
There are games I play for story & there are games I play for gameplay. This falls under the latter. And I can't wait
I really don't care how Second Son fits into the canon. I just want to play the damn game!
if you are hating a video game based on comic book like charatcers because of the story.... you are a dumass.
More infamous is what I wanted and more infamous is what I got. Ill never forget playing the first game for the first time! The game felt so fresh and I really enjoyed how strong cole got near the end of the game.
Sucker Punch has done well story wise for their games, Sly Cooper and InFamous series, so Im sure they'll figure it out and make it work :) Just wait till we play the game before complaining bout the continuity.
now this is just a thought i came up with like 5 minutes ago but what if the first sons were experimenting and made a new conduit gene and gave it to people but this time there was no ray sphere so no plague and it could also explain why Delson has his powers at whatever age he is and did not die.
but this idea is after the good ending and this could kind of make sense cause it could explain how people have powers after Cole used the RFI
