Haha, i knew it was Abriael from the title alone ;)

"Only one power can be used at any given time. It’s possible to switch between them but not on the fly. You have to actually find a source of that element and absorb it to change"

I like that, i imagine seeing a power-specific enemy and instead of just changing to that power you have to actively seek it out.

Love that neon powerup. It feels like Delsin swallowed the Resogun universe.

GarrusVakarian1701d ago

Haha, yeah. It looks like one of the coolest ways to traverse the environment ive ever seen in a game, just a burst of speed and colour. It sounds awesome too.

DeadMansHand1701d ago

I have been dreaming about this game since last year. It's time to do a media blackout. I know enough. Don't want to spoil anything.

Sayai jin1701d ago

Sweet power-ups!!! Anyone know anything about DLC and resolution for SS?

GarrusVakarian1701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

Resolution is 1080p and the special edition has 'Cole's Legacy DLC'. But im guessing there will be more DLC post-launch like there was for Infamous 2 (festival of blood).

"DLC? Who even cares at this point. Get the game out first and then worry about that."

Yep. Enjoy the game first and let the devs make something from the ground up after the game is released.

Bathyj1701d ago

1080p i believe. Could be wrong.

DLC? Who even cares at this point. Get the game out first and then worry about that.

Sayai jin1701d ago

Thanks. I enjoyed the last game and will do the same with this one. I am asking about DLC is because my son asked me. He is not sure he wants to buy this game or not. I personally don't buy DLC unless it's for an RPG or it's a massive increase of game play.

KAEM71701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

OH NOOOooooOOOooooOOO's!!! kids are brainwashed allready and asking for DLC BEFORE the game is released!

this business is doomed! ;)

.... but, seriously, bit concerning...

Sayai jin1701d ago

Nah- he'll be 17 soon. He wants to know about the game before he sinks $600 on it. He asked about other features as well, but I knew those things already.

My other son is hooked on resolution and DLC though. ???? Don't get it.

KAEM71701d ago

I wouldn't advice anyone to spend 600 bucks on any one game ;)

Sony and the infamous devs have a good track reckord on value for money and content with their games and dlc, so no worries there.

Sayai jin1701d ago

I meant $60 USD not 600.

I don't like that you can't changenon the fly. I was hoping you would eventually have 4 powers mapped to the digital pad. Seems like a wasted opportunity having to go find a neon sign. It would be great to have all this different move sets available at the push of a button. It's the same reason I hate shooters having two weapons. I would like to carry my full arsenal with me then I can decide what to use in what situation instead of just using what I have on me at the time.

mkis0071701d ago

Remember they need to put enough power absorb places to recharge the power you have, I doubt it will be that hard to find the power you want within the vicinity.

GarrusVakarian1701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

I actually like the fact that we won't be able to go full god mode and just switch whenever we feel like it. Having to actually go and search for a source of your power switches things up a bit, i don't really see it as an inconvenience, especially seeing as you will need to find a power source to recharge anyway. Powers don't last forever.

I respect your opinion though, i can definitely see the appeal of having everything available at a push of a button.

king_george1701d ago

I agree with you. I think having all the powers at once like that would ruin the game for me a bit.. delsin would just be overpowered in my opinion. This decision of having to go find power sources adds an element of strategy to the game and im liking it

Septic1701d ago

Gotta agree there. I think it could work better to look for a source and then use it. I hate it when your character feels too OP.

Although saying that, it would be really cool if you could combine powers together to make unique ones. So Fireball + Purple Sex dust or whatever that is= superspeed fireball. They could also make it quite challenging so changing on the fly and combining powers required some skill in itself.

Bathyj1701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

I have no problem with being to replenish your tank, I just still think it would be good to switch in the middle of an attack.

Imagine the combos you could come up with with 4 move sets. Plus if you ran out of smoke you could switch to neon like running out of ammo and going another gun.

Maybe it could be an ability you unlock later in the game so he's not too overpowered from start.

You know I always like Tshang sung in mortal kombat. Being every character was too cool.

Thanks for disagreeing but still respecting.

k2d1701d ago

If that's the way the devs wanted the player to play then they've probably figured out what works best for most people.

But hey.. That's what cheats are for!

That looks so smooth! Oh so pretty! Freaking out again!

Meltic1701d ago

it feels more real to do this Power switch. I liked that they didnt do Power switch menu.

kiz26941701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

I think my most favorite thing about this game, is how secret it has been, we've only seen a few demos pretty much showcasing the same stuff. I hate when they over do it with in depth previews, I want to explore the game like it should.. completely blind. We have only seen 2 powers out of ?? this alone just gets my insides buzzing! I cant wait to discover a new power and be generally shocked by it!

PS excuse the pun if there is a electrical power :P

GarrusVakarian1701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

I agree, it leaves a lot to be discovered by the player instead of the player pretty much knowing everything about the game before it's even released.

" We have only seen 2 powers out of ??"

My guess is some sort of 'earth' power like the enemies in the first trailer have and a 'water' power seeing as there seems to be a heavy emphasis on rain in the game. But those are just wild guesses.

kiz26941701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

Yeah this it it. I love how there so many powers, I would love the earth power they look so cool launching in to the air leaving a rock structure behind! I cant believe when i think back to the first 2 games, that I enjoyed it so much with just one power! Were gunna get drunk with power!

Irishguy951701d ago

Yeah earth and Water seem like the big ones for me too, I remember you commented on an article before about earth and I was talking about water, the two of them suit the game alot, along with the defensive and offensive attributes they could have. I imagine Earth being the best defense and water being an AoE power. Neon brings speed of course, since it is light, and smoke brings focused offensive power
