I replayed Infamous 2 recently. Such an insanely fun game but Damn! It looks like a psOne game now, compared to this lol.

Can't wait either !!
TomShoe  +   751d ago
Wow. Those GRFX.

Everybody should pronounce the word "Graphics" as "GRFX" now. They look so good nowadays.
Eziowellington  +   751d ago
Same here, and i felt the same way, well more like ps2 to me not ps1 lol. funny thing still played the Good cole even though thats what i played as last time 0_o
pyramidshead  +   751d ago
I swear sometimes Infamous 2 was quite hard in some respects. Some of the big beasties could easily put you down if you weren't careful.

I've played good on both games so when ever they come back around on my rotation scheme I'll replay them as the jerk! :P

And this is actual press.

Not the press that MS has paid off behind the scene.
FamilyGuy  +   750d ago
Some of the DUP guys have a Rock power that I'm guessing they had implanted in some kind of way. Maybe through experimentation or through some conduit that can give normal people the power. Either way that's another power so far.

I like how the powers they are coming up with have some originality. With all the Super hero comics out there it's got to be pretty hard to come up with original ideas. Neon was very surprising so I can't wait to see what they come up with next.

Getting this game day 1.
Boody-Bandit  +   750d ago
I've been saying this since it premiered and I'm still saying it. This is the best looking game on any "console" (in my opinion) I've seen thus far. It's staggering that this is open world and with all that's going on and it appears to run smooth as silk. Again, staggering.
NumOnePS3FanBoy  +   750d ago
I cannot wait for this game!!! March 21st cannot come soon enough. GEttinng the collectors edition ;)
Irishguy95  +   751d ago
Agree, the Neon powers look like the best power so far in the franchise imo. Teleporting type abilities always get me. Do we have any confirmed other abilities yet? Or are there none/still secret?

Hmm good stuff Lucas

...water? When standing on water you can control the water and throw **** around. Maybe too hopeful..
Forget swimming swiming, you can fly around on a water spout.

I got nothing else...

Edit - Hmm, a common way to use water as a weapon...i'll give an example:


In infamous same thing could be done. Pretty much a highly compressed water gun for the R1 attack. Then use a wave for the push and have various powers while near water, such as again, water spouts and all sorts of waves/whirlpools etc. Hmm, what would be the grenade. Also, how about stealth? Being able to become a pool of water and use drains to get around, like Smoke going through vents.

They are still secret, Sucker Punch were asked what power is their favourite and their was reply was something like "one that you guys haven't seen yet".

Hyped. Amazing graphics, especially for a 1080p open world game. If it's anything like the old Infamous games it will play well too. Sharp movements, but smooth gameplay.

And i agree on the neon being the best power so far, i love the vivid purple/pink and how it lights up the world around it, like this GIF for example - , i love how the particles light up his face right at the end.

I was thinking water too.....but how would that make an effective weapon? I don't know. It would look pretty sick to have water thrusters coming out of your palms though, lol.

I would also say Electricity again.....but that might be too close to neon.....

Part of me really wants to know what the other powers are now, but the other half wants to wait until i have the game for the surprise.

"Then use a wave for the push and have various powers while near water, such as again, water spouts and all sorts of waves/whirlpools etc."

"Being able to become a pool of water and use drains to get around, like Smoke going through vents."

Those ideas sound amazing. Maybe you could even evaporate into wisps of steam/water droplets to travel around and then reform into your standard body....kinda like how you turn into ash particles when dodging but it would last longer and could basically use it to fly for a limited period of time.

So many possiblities. They must have had so much fun making this game.

I've been thinking about rock/earth power... I mean, we've seen ice (water), fire and electricity (sometimes coupled with wind/weather) before. Now it looks like they are trying to go for different stuff, so smoke (air and fire?), neon (light)... We had not seen earth based powers so far. It could be specially interesting as defensive powers.
Eonjay  +   750d ago
Sucker Punch Recently remarked that their favorite power hasnt been revealed yet. So at least one more is confirmed. We will have to see if its three total or more.
Studio-YaMi  +   751d ago
This game & the upcoming MGS:GZ are games that will really define next gen.

I'm thinking infamous is one of the best 10 franchises in the history of gaming. But still I'm greedy with requests. I love the grapple, please make it have even farther range. Which will require you to add a quick zoom, so I can aim to those buildings that are very far away. Maybe double tap L2 for zoom? And make the grapple happen sooner in the game. That is all, oh yeah, I'm not sure if this is possible but make the explosions even bigger and more fiery colored.
Deeke  +   751d ago
Awesome stuff as usual, Giuseppe! Love your content and can't wait for Infamous although isn't it releasing as the same month as Watch Dogs and MGS V: Ground Zeroes? ;o
Abriael  +   751d ago
Watch dogs still doesn't have a release date, but yeah, it releases close to GZ
One_Eyed_Wizard  +   751d ago
I was also under the impression Watch Dogs would release in March. However, since it hasn't been announced yet I'd say it's releasing later.

It's possible Ubisoft won't want to compete with all the games coming out in March. Which is understandable. Watch Dogs is on my priority list yet I still wouldn't get it over inFamous and GZ.
G20WLY  +   751d ago
The particle effects, in particular, are so impressive compared to what we've had on PS3.

It's funny that Infamous one had incredible particle effects at the time and now this instalment continues to raise that same bar.

Makes me wonder if they were sharing experience/techniques with Resogun developers on this front. Can't wait for this game :)

i loved all the little things that went on in infamous, it was truly full to brim . 2nd was a huge leap in visuals to me. story was amazing, i hope second son is really good in all aspects
pyramidshead  +   751d ago
If I remember correctly the particles are a new addition because of the compute capabilities. They all compile on PS4s GPU. Sony's first party already snipping the top off of that architecture :P.
Chaostar  +   751d ago
This is really looking like the first game that truly kicks off that next-gen feeling. It was Gears of War for me last gen, I'm hoping it's inFamous this time as I'm a big fan of the previous games and feel they were terribly underrated and overlooked.

One_Eyed_Wizard  +   751d ago
It's been underrated and overlooked by some but I'm pretty sure it's still popular.
Chaostar  +   751d ago
Oh definitely but it deserves more in my eyes :)
WitWolfy  +   751d ago
I dunno .. I think MGS is the next gen game changer for me so far. that game looks insane!!! But now that I think about it, it does look MORE or less the same compared to last gen consoles now that I think about it...
Chaostar  +   751d ago
Well it's all subjective I guess. Personally I think MGS will be hindered by being multi platform and cross gen. I do think it looks pretty good though as all MG games do.
NumOnePS3FanBoy  +   750d ago
It was definitely an underrated beast but InFamous 2 definitely made it a franchise to be respected. Collectors edition here I come. March 21st!!!!
grassyknoll  +   751d ago
This & Dark Souls 2 in the same month: Gaming heaven.
One_Eyed_Wizard  +   751d ago
Or hell. So many huge games I can't get all I want. I'll have to let go of Dark Souls 2 for now and it's not because I don't like it.
Hellsvacancy  +   751d ago
And Final Fantasy X HD, SouthPark

Not enough time to play these awesome games

Don't forget about Dying Light, and Titanfall if you have a PC or Xbox.
sitesucks  +   750d ago
Cant mention titanfall without getting marked down cause of the pro-sony community lol. even though infamouse and titanfall are both amazing games to start off next gen
MRMagoo123  +   750d ago
I would say people would be looking forward to all the game mentioned, its gonna be a crazy month


You can mention titanfall when not trying to pretend its some magic game changer for the xbone when its also coming to pc and 360.

Your comment on the other hard was completely off topic and will probably be marked down as such. You didnt even make an on topic comment after your childish rant.

It did, for several months. You missed out. I1 had some rough spots but I had a great time with it, first game I ever Platinumed. I2 gave a big jump to the visuals, and smoothed out practically all the issues with I1.

I:SS is pretty much a system-seller for me, it's why I want a PS4.
Kurisu  +   751d ago
Sorry, I re read my comment. What I meant to say is that I'll download Second Son on PS4 if it ever comes to PS+ in the future. I'm not going to bother with 2. I don't have a PS4 yet and won't do until at least Christmas, maybe even early 2015. I want to get a Vita beforehand!

Yeah you missed it on PS+ because I did as well. But they're cheap now.

Use the "buy used & new" on amazon trade in section. You can get lot's of old dirt cheap games for next to nothing in good condition. Stick to people with good ratings(out of a lot) and keep to "Used, like new" or "Used, very good"

Think you'll be able to get both of them for less than £20, $20

This is one of the 1st games shown off so far that you just look at and automatically label it next gen. The lighting and particle effects shown in this and games like Deep Down really show off the power of the PS4. The fire breathing in Deep Down is crazy next level, that Panta Rhei engine is no joke, I just wish Capcom didn't lie about the rest of the visuals in that first trailer. Infamous seems it has always been shown off on PS4 hardware in realtime promoting true gameplay performance though. I'm not too familiar with the series, I own part 1 on PS3, only because the 5 games they let us choose for free after the 'infamous' PSN outtage. I should play it a bit to get more of an understanding of the whole story.

There are a lot of Idiots who just buy ps4 to sell them again for profit.

In private users sell ps4 already at 750€ lmao crazy!
SkippyPaccino  +   751d ago
I feel like this game should be getting more press... But all we hear is "TitanFall this, TitanFall that"... It's getting on my nerves.

This game will be great... Hopefully there's some type of co-op multiplayer... Doesn't have to be story driven but could be some type of deathmatch, team deathmatch, 8 player co-op against a giant beast... Things of that nature.
Kribwalker  +   751d ago
Titanfall is an original ip made by the guys that invented call of duty and has blown the minds of gaming press and players alike that have played it. Infamous is the 3rd game in a series with few changes but the graphics. By this point everyone knows what to expect from it, so it doesn't get as much press
SkippyPaccino  +   751d ago
That makes no sense what you said...Everyone that gets hyped for TitanFall never really explains what gets them all hyped about's always "mechs and jumping on walls" We get it...It looks fun but, not "Lets talk about this one and only game forever and ever because popcorn taste better when its pink" Sure lots of people will enjoy it and i'm fine with that. I'm not here to ruined anyone's parade...

Now i believe the gaming press should spread the love around. Their main purpose is to educate their audience on whats out there and whats coming out. I'm not sure they need to excessively promote a game made by some of the richest game developers ever...Let them use their riches on advertising to spread the news. They don't need more freebies.

The reason why i believe Second Son deserves more press is simply the fact that the game is coming out in march (same time as TitanFall)and is truly looking like a new gen experience...I want to learn more about that then hear a guy babel about jumping in a mech and then jumping out of it and then jumping on walls and so on...We get it people!!!
Salooh  +   750d ago
I prefer inFAMOUS because it have a story , huge world , next generation feeling because of it's graphics and visuals. :P

Titanfall is just a port from last gen with call of duty gameplay(that we love in cod4/6) and mech/jet included. It have bad AI (that might improve but have a low chance), bad graphics , no campaign.

Not saying the game sucks, i'm actually looking forward to the sequel for the ps4 but it's not something better then Second son to talk about it more. I would buy them both day one even if they are in the same day.
WitWolfy  +   751d ago
OK its official, im getting this game!!!!
idontcare  +   751d ago

Dissidia  +   750d ago

idontcare  +   750d ago
it looks dull and sterile. civilians are running around like last gen and there's no life in it.

i also don't like the gameplay but to each his own.
