inFAMOUS: Second Son Clears the Smoke with Neon Powers

Push Square: "Many assumed that the tease at the end of last week’s brand new inFAMOUS: Second Son trailer was pointing to familiar electrical powers, but developer Sucker Punch has clarified that Delsin Rowe will be dabbling with neon. Those of you that have been following the game will know that the new protagonist’s power is actually the ability to, er, absorb other powers, unlocking access to a catalogue of different skills. And according to creative director Nate Fox, these movesets will totally change the game." (inFamous: Second Son, PS4)

The visual effects of these powers is going to be great.

This article surprisingly has me more excited than I was before, even more so than the gameplay videos!

Absorbing powers is freaking awesome. Reminds me of Heroes (only Season 1 of course, we can all pretend the other ones never happened).

@levian, Hey, Season 2 was pretty good. It was when Season 3 dropped that the series stopped trying. But anyways, it reminds me more of MegaMan. I get the feeling that in I:SS, we'll end up facing off against another conduit, defeat them, then get their power, much in MegaMan fashion. Either way, it will be awesome!

What i would like to see in second son is multiple powers, (electricity!!!) and Zeke's comeback! i cannot wait anymore! infamous series is one of my favorites!

That is definitely not a power I would have expected but good to see they are going outside the box some with the new powers. I cannot wait to see what else they show and will be getting this on day one.

Me, too. The only game that makes me want a PS4.

My most anticipated launch window title for PS4
azshorty2003  +   318d ago
Agreed. While I'm really excited for Killzone and others, Second Son is my most anticipated.

I spent so much time dabbling with Kuo's and Nix's powers in I2.

The fact that SP is giving us more powers to play with ... ARGGGG. I can't wait. This is going to get a hell of a lot of playtime on my PS4.

Those are damn beautiful!

Doesn't anyone think giving him the ability to absorb powers AS WELL as his smoke powers will make him seem a little over powered. I just feel they are trying too hard to out do Cole. I mean absorbing powers is a pretty powerful power in the whole comic universe.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   318d ago
I'm sure giving enemies a damage buff would balance things out nicely. I'm all for more powers.
Sevir  +   318d ago
It didn't stop megaman from being cool. And they confirmed very early on that his real conduit power was absorbing other powers of conduits.

In Infamous 2 they tied the powers you got to the morality system, which meant you only get one or the other through a single play through. I like that this isn't so limiting, because I wished in I2 that I could swap between Electricity, Ice and Fire.

I don't feel like they are trying to out do Cole, but seriously, why wouldn't you want a bad ass super hero to toy around with that's more powerful than the one prior, it's a new console generation and if we got more of the same it would just be a none progressive series.

Absorbing power isnt that strong in comics anyway . it often comes with limitations to begin with . In Marvel stuff guys like Rogue , Shaw or Bishop are hardly the strongest . Hell you can easily overload them .

In Infamous SS i see it more as a way to provide a wide variety of power and possibly use multiple elements , as opposed to just electricity

But does Deslin have limitations, I mean those X men characters you listed were weak because of their limitations, thats what I'm trying to point out. If he can go around willy nilly and take any powers he can then surley theres a downside to it, something which wont make it seem op. Rouge in X men for example ends up weak and tired usualy hitting the floor after she uses it so will Deslin be the same.

By the way after Rouge and co end up controlling their powers they end up being pretty powerful in more then one way. But Deslin has just gotten his powers.

If I had to guess, and I can only speculate, I would say that he can probably only have one absorbed power at a time, or maybe two that can be combined if we're lucky.:) He'll probably have his staple powers as well. Either that or there will be a limit on how much of an absorbed power he can use...like a mana bar I guess.
itisallaboutps  +   318d ago
I really doubt they would make him overpowered. Besides I always loved being a total bad A$$ in game
LeoDDestroyer  +   318d ago
What I wonder is when he takes her power and it shows a vision. Who is that in the last frame.

check out a webcomic I made making fun of that Infamous Pic.
