Eurogamer give their impressions of their hands on with inFamous: Second Second
I still hate the character for his stupid beanie hat thing. If it looked more like Troy Baker I'd be happier
From what I've seen, the protagonist comes across as a bit of a douche. Although I hear that was somewhat of a design choice. One reason I historically prefer FPS. Game looks great though and my PS4 must be getting as sick of just BF4 as me.
Not a douche. He just enjoys having powers. What douchey stuff has he done?
Well it seems like Delsin has more personality than Cole, though that doesn't say much. Cole was too boring. Baker should be able to elevate Delsin
Fishy Why just Battlefield? There's actually a lot of games out to choose from. I've been playing Outlast, and I picked up Tomb Raider DE the other day since I didn't play it last gen, and oh my is it a beautiful game.
I don't understand how you can 'hate' him (already). There might be a good personality beyond this slightly immature behavior.
Unreal. I've got everything from PSN+, Outlast will cost me a fortune in new underwear, rysogun I've played to death (still love it, waiting on DLC) and don't starve is just not my thing. AAA wise, BF4 and Killzone is all I own, prefer BF personally. Just waiting on the next wave of big titles. Already have tomb raider on PC. It's not that there a shortage of things to play it's just many don't appeal to me or I've already played them.
It the karma...
@ANIALATOR136 Hey, man, I wear beanies like that, also, troy baker wears beanies like that.....lots of people wear beanies like that, no reason to hate on a person or character....
@blitz0623 "Cole was too boring" What? Cole was funny most of the time, what the hell have you been smoking?
I would act the same way if i had the powers he had
That's seriously my only complaint about the game, the douche acting character. Maybe when I play it he wont seem as bad. But everything else seems absolutely top notch, hands down the most stunning graphics this gen so far, everything looks fantastic, and fun might I add.
I don't understand how people can form any opinions about the characters of the game if we haven't seen even 5 mins of the game thus far. Wait a little before you pass judgement, or at least determine what the full context of the scenes that we've seen thus far
@ Fishy Fingers You historically prefer characters with less personality?
He's supposed to be a little douchey. Can't wait though. Loved the first two.
Hmm Not a huge fan of the series its 'good' but unless its a Fallout 3 RPG or a GTA V crime saga sandbox games can become boring to me due to endless fetch quests, repetitive side missions, collectibles and backtracking For example I wish Sleeping Dogs had the same characters, story and gameplay but on a 'Shenmue' type scale like 1/6 the size of the actual map but more detailed with lots of interiors and without all the boring 'sandbox stuff' Lets hope this game like Eurogamer says leads the series to the AAA category
It sounds like you haven't even played the series based on the general description of sandbox games you have.
I'm not getting the hype behind this game not on the graphics side either
Games like Fallout 3 may have endless fetch quests, but Infamous is not that type of game. Unlike Bethesda, Sucker Punch made the character part of the story, not just someone doing favors for everyone on the map.
Loved the first two so I know I'll love this one. It looks stunning in my eyes
Yeah, I personally hate the beanie, too. Reminds me of old school punks and modern hipsters, which both suck.
I think that's the crowd they are appealing to with this character, young, high-school, college age crowd. thing is is that it's a turn-off for everyone else.
At least it doesn't have a brim. If the main character of a game had a brimmed beanie, well, I'd just have to not buy it out of principle.
actually, I would say the toque is more hipster circa 2006 - 2009 than old school punk (which, to me, is something along the lines of the sex pistols).
@SilentNegotiator Wow is all i can say....
Do you people even know what GRUNGE is? How old are you kids? lol. It takes place in Seattle even. How in the hell does Delsin look like a hipster?
I would worry too much about the underwear. Its all in glorious 1080p. If they can get the frame rate to 60fps, then it will sell millions.
@Kal Who did you think I mean when I said old school punks? @BigPappy Still trolling Infamous articles, I see.
I'm an old school skater and his style doesn't bug me, his pants are kinda tight, but that's about it. Don't judge a book by its cover man, i used to rock a mohawk in the early 90s and I've got Trust Karma tattooed down my forearms :D @Silent Wait a minute, Grunge isn't old school punk man, I just saw your reply to Kal. Lmmfao That sh*t was on MTV! Hahaha
High five to fenome about silent's reply. Ya beat me to it. :P Off Topic....In all seriousness you folks should watch the movie HYPE!. Not only is it a great Grunge rock documentary but it will show you alot about the music scene of the early 90's Soundgarden FTW
I didn't equate grunge to punk rock; the grunge followers/leaders WERE punks.
Infamous is a boring repetitive game. The first one got so boring by the end that after I beat it, I didn't even care for the second. The graphics will be great, and yes.. of course the PS fanboy will love that. I don't see the story, missions or how you play this game to be any different that the first two. Boring after a while.
Of course you don't see, because you haven' played it yet. Lol Then again, either have I so you could be right. Can't wait to find out though, I got that preorder on lock!
But in another article, you are bigging up Titanfall on the x1, a game that in gameplay terms is just another COD with slightly better graphics and of course the Xboys will love it. "Boring after a while" Lol......
DmC's Dante is a douche. Any character is a saint after witnessing that foul mouthed twit, Delsin's pretty cool, much cooler than Cole (He was one of the reasons I disliked InFamous) this new character was the first thing to captured my attention. March, Hell yeah.
Hmm If you liked the old infamious games, you'll like this one... That's the main conclusion.
but what if i liked inFamous 1 but not 2?
Then,no offense, but your nuts!
Right with you.
@gobluesmag & JasonRoseEh He's not nuts. There were a lot of things I didn't like about 2. The Beast was rushed and anticlimactic, the two girls representing good and evil were both pointless and annoying, Cole's redesign was awful, your main power (the basic lighting bolt) used energy, the world was smaller, and the story didn't have that crazy twist at the end. I loved both games and have them both, but I have to say I liked the first more than the second.
I liked the second infamous game, more the second time around. The first time I was annoyed by the changes they made...but the second time I began to appreciate it for what I brought to the table.
Personally didn't get into either InFamous 1 or 2, I didn't like the cast that much, I know, I'm crazy right? No, game play was sweet, everything else wasn't for me. This new setting and new characters got my interest, I'll be picking it up day 1.
Need this right now!!!
Am i the only one that is a bit skeptical about this game? I am infact a PS4 guy although i will be getting an X1 soon, just because im a gamer, thats what i do. Idk about this though seems like i would get bored of it after the first days playing. Graphics also not sure if it was just videos but the graphics dont seem as amazing as expected either. Again i hope you guys dont destroy me with bashes but i just wanna see what you guy are thinking as well. O and im going by the videos released this morning.
Perhaps it's a matter of your taste. For me, personally, the gameplay looks rather average; just a standard super-hero mechanics. Hopefully the characters, storyline, world and your impact on the society (if there will be any) will make it worthwhile.
OMG, anything said against a PS4 exlusive = bash!
"OMG, anything said against a PS4 exlusive = bash!" Why did you feel the need to say this? You gave your opinions and people disagreed.
Just been looking through your comment history (all 6days of it) and you always start your comments reassuring everyone you own an X1 and a PS4 and then go on to say how rubbish the PS4 games are/look and how great X1 games look/are. Stop your stealth trolling and grow up. If you not interested in the game don't comment.
Not in anyway shape or form. Just informing the readers that i have a PS4 and will soon be getting an X1. Would you like me to take a picture of my PS4 with a sticker on it with my N4G name on it, to assure you that your wrong. It is obviously an opinion, which is why i asked for other opinions. Thanks for getting very butthurt and showing your loyalty to a product.
You actually looked through his comments? Funny either way.
I think u should post the picture just to prove him wrong =x
@Bonkerz OK post a picture. Its not butthurt, I am a gamer and own both consoles. I cannot praise or rubbish a game I have not played or seen running in person. But you seem to be able. Look forward to seeing a pic of your ps4.
Well said Bennibop. I hate secret trolls.
@Bennibop Considering it has been 2 hours I'm guessing you got your proof.
It would seem so! If a picture appears now it's going to be faked.
@Bennibop: Good eye dude I didnt know it was possible to lose 2 bubbles in 6 days...
@stedron I think you start off with 3 bubbles. I'm not 100 % sure. @Bennibob I agree. Stealth trolling usually starts off that way.
He's not going to post anything and continue on his crusade of lying to himself also. I bet every day he closes his eyes and wishes he had a PS4. If he does post something now, it's already been too long so in other words, fake picture, fake person, basically another troll looking for attention because apparently, he's not getting enough from his parents.
Did you play the first two? If yes then you'll probably know how bored you'll get playing this. If no, then maybe you need to give it a chance. I'm not sure how bored you'll be as inFamous games have fairly interesting stories, and if #2 is any indication the game just gets bigger and bigger. Plus you unlock more and more powers as you progress, so there's plenty of incentive to try different styles and techniques. Personally, I preferred inFamous 1 more than 2, but both are good games - I wouldn't say they are classics, but I am greatly looking forward to playing Second Son.
Its not just you. Im eager to play this game but I've been saying for awhile that its basically gonna be a better looking infamous reskin. New setting new character but same gameplay mechanics and even the animations look the same. And based on this preview it seems the morality system seems the same black and white as before. Before the disagrees understand that just because I think it will be more of the same with minor improvements I'm still looking forward to playing because I've enjoyed the infamous series. Just seems like ppl may be expecting a revolution.
I don't expect the story to be spectacular either. Honestly I'm just excited to finally have something not from PS Plus that I'll be able to get my hands on. The graphics look gorgeous that excites me the most, gameplay looks similar to other inFAMOUS games.
i hope hes beanie is off in the game later on. Cant stand it lol
They could always make a DLC that would let you take it off. Although that seems like something silly to buy.
Why does everyone hate the beanie? It's Seattle. What do you expect?
Imagine it would be Portland. Delsin would drive a unicycle
probably a penny farthing.
At least he doesn't have one of those stupid hipster mustaches.
Yeah, I don't get it either. I wear a beanie out whenever it's raining here. So, it makes sense that he wears one in Seattle.
Im bald and live in seattle, so, yes! skull cap just about every day! Every bald man knows what cold and rain feels like on yer noggin!
Yeah, I don't understand what the big deal is. It's just a single article of clothing. People can scream about hipsters all day, but I wear one too. I like the look. Same thing with people who complain about his personality and call him a douche. Like, seriously? Having fun with mother****ing superpowers qualifies a person as a douche now?
I don't think it's just the beanie. His entire wardrobe screams hipster skater punk. That annoys me as I automatically, and extremely unfairly, assume all hipsters and skaters are douches. Although I do live in Southern California, so my prejudice, is obviously largely influenced by that. But I hated, and still hate, the Cole reskin from the second game. Didn't stop me from enjoying the game. I'll hold my judgement until I've given the game a through play.
