"inFamous Second is by far the best title available on Sony's current generation console, the PlayStation 4. Second Son takes the series into new directions with amazing visual effects along with solid gameplay mechanics."
Only if Dark Souls did something like this, nothing like your controller dying whilst in a boss battle
I'm sorry, how in the world could someone let it happen?you get an info when your controller needs charging and it can still work quite long after the notification pops up! Never happened to me. Second controller comes in handy, of course. Ot: seems like a neat feature, though not very significant one. Will check that out when i get my ps4 some time later this year. Fingers crossed for summer, but the autumn is more likely...
Have you ever played a Souls game? It's the kind of game that you get so in to that you tune out everything else around you. It can easily happen. And like you said, the controller works for quite awhile after the notification, don't you think it'd be easy to forget about it in that time?
It's a case of "my controller will hold for another 5 minutes, i'm sure it will" It happened once when I was playing BF3........ in a helicopter full of players
Fair enough,i wouldn't worry about that in most sp games,but when you play mp then you can get yourself in trouble.that is why i would never allow it,especially with ds games.they make me really jumpy, so charged controller is just one of the things that make me bit more relaxed xD honestly, no horror film can make me jump so high as seeing someone's shadow appearing suddenly next to my character.especially when i'm exploring a new area.that is some undies-soiling stuff, i tell ya.
i always thought that a message came up on screen saying "please reconnect controller" and paused the game when the battery died on the consoles? i usually check before i play and plug them in if low so dunno if this has carried over to this gen
That's really cool but I'm not sure what's wrong with just pausing the game. Anyway, the game is fan-freaking-tastic.
awesome.. btw no cloud needed
Hey man, don't diss Cloud Power. There's a little known side mission in Second Son where Delsin looks for an MS exec just so he can drain the Power of the Cloud from him and learn the Latency power. I haven't found it yet, but I heard that Latency power is the most OP power in the game. You actually talk to D.U.P. agents to convince them of your now immense power and go to use it, only you either have an unnoticeable affect that impacts nothing, or the power takes forever to show and the D.U.P. have left from boredom. I'm trying to find it in-game but so far no luck.
Lol, don't you also go to a massive expo and pretend you are using your own powers but in reality you have more powerful conduits showing those powers. Hehe
You do, but that's part of DLC content so I didn't include it. There's also the hidden power of the Cloud that hasn't been shown yet where you tell the D.U.P. that this is only a preview of the true power, which won't reveal itself until an appropriate time.
Your comment literally made me LOL
As an XB1 owner you got me to laugh pretty hard on that one.
Sucker Punch should have added in the power of the cloud for the 5th power. That would have been funny.
inFamous makes the best use of the controller, in general. I would play an entire game of just spray painting with that mechanic. It's so fun!
I like the spray painting, but I don't like using the touch pad for soaking powers.. I can't reach the damn thing without taking my hand off the controller. Wish they would have mapped that to a different button since we do it constantly.
You must have small hands.
Oh, seriously? Wow. I have fairly small hands and I don't have any issues hitting the touch pad with my right thumb. :/ Sorry, man.
Yes my hands are small. Not something I can really change haha.
I agree. I hate everything about the touchpad. I just don't understand why they even used it. There are two perfectly good sticks that can be depressed as buttons but we aren't using those at all. It's really aggravating. Game rules, though. I'm 2/3 of the way through it the second time already. lol
I just feel that the amount the touchpad is used is forced... and would've been much more intuitive if on another face button. I also dont like the sqaure is drop from hanging, when nearly every other game would use circle
That is a good features for PS4 games. At this point I just leave my controller plugged into the USB cable, so tired of running out of battery.
The pad feels good to me when i was getting recharge.infamous is so good,this is how a superhero game is suppose to play like. Delsin rogue is what i like to call him. Does anyone know how to get the paper trail working after the murder investigation?
The only pertinent information garnered from the clues seems to be the phone number coupled with the device tracker. But, I've tried both variations (844-brunberg has one too many numbers) to no avail. Even climbing a skyscraper for a good signal made no difference. I also thought it might have something to do with the website "karma." So I completed the quiz but, when I tried to take the genome screening test I got an error404, website not found. Was anyone else able to connect and take the test?
Worked for me im a smoke conduit lol, as for the phone number, you have to go onto the investigators website, login to his account by pressing forgot password, enter the details it asks for then searching through his files will give you the number you need, hope that helps :-)
I figured it out last night, but thanks just the same =)
pretty sad that they had to design a feature into the game for the ps4 poor battery life . how about they let us turn off the light and touchpad so we can have a battery life closer to the ps3
"pretty sad that they had to design a feature into the game for the ps4 poor battery life ." Anyones controller can run out of battery. Which is why i appreciate a feature like this being in the game. Even i had moments with im playing a game on my PS3 and my controller ran out of battery.
the ps3 controller lasted forever , and the xb1 is super efficient . maybe its just me , but the ps4 controller runs out of juice super fast during SS , maybe its because its using all the gimmicks ( speaker, touchpad , sixaxis , and the light is always on as usual ) everytime i've played the game i have to stop for recharging .
Had day off today as my little lad is off school, started playing SS about 10 with full charge, 7 hours later am on second bar. When I game at the weekends, the DS4 will last me the whole day no problems. I also have a DS4 on my PC, that lasts about a day as well.
Wrong. On both 360 and X1, ANY game you play, if your controller dies or temp. loses connection because your battery pack came loose, it auto-pauses (except for MP, obviously). That's the way it SHOULD be.
Whats cool about it though is when the Ds4 runs out of juice we can plug it in and continue playing. If your XBO controller runs out you have to find some Duracell batteries.
He has small hands AND he smells like cabbage.
and he is a bisexual emo
My PS4 will hold 30 mins after the warning. 15 if it's a twitch shooter
This is stupid…. It should just pause….I don't know why you would want it to keep playing….?!?!
so when you plug it in you don't start getting attacked.
But you wouldn't…..you would still have to un-pause the game… And in my opinion I would rather take control of the character after un-pausing then have the AI try to run around and hide.
Instead of messages on screen telling you to plug the controller. Maybe we can have an option of voice through the controller speaker to tell us that the controller battery is low. Sometime I see the message telling me to charge the controller. I just ignore it and then I forgot about it. Happens to me often.
Nice innovation. Though I sit pretty close & prefer to play wired, myself.
All right. That's pretty nifty. Why not just have it so that the game automatically pauses when your controller dies though? Seems the most logical thing to do.
There's is also another feature. If you're evil the controller light becomes redder as you play the game, and bluer if you're good. Check it out
The coolest thing would be if any of the discs from walmart or gamestop actually worked.
Happened to me, my guy was running around in circles though.
It is handy. InFamous is basically a "showcase title" since it utilizes all the features and demonstrates how it works. As for this, it is needed because the controllers die so fast lol
I mean it sounds cool but I think I would just rather have the game paused. Is there an option to turn it off and have the game pause instead? I don't have a ps4 but I'm picking one up when I get my tax refund and I'm picking up infomous with it . Looks like a really good game.
I much prefer a game to just pause or give a screen when the controller dies.
so simple yet so brilliant! I'm so getting this game just so I see for myself. lols
idiot what if you're in a heated battle with a bunch of baddies? a pause screen is better, and its not even true you dumbasses are so gullible
u jellin'? Butthurt xbot calling other people "dumbasses"??? You wish you can play this on your inferior system
You nor I would be able to prove if this is True, But the Idea of this is simply brilliant. ...You can't really say much with only 2 bubbles, so I'll let this one go.
so that means he runs for cover every 5 hours . i hate that controller with its poor battery life. my ds3 stayed charged for days
lol this game would be terrible on the xbox. With your character running around, when you are all over the house looking for batteries
Guess I'll never know bcuz I swap when mine gets low!
This is not true...
Needs a feature like this when the battery runs out every 3 hours or so... wish my controller had some replaceable batterys
When you get the low battery warning and ignore it is your own fault. I don't understand why people don't leave it plugged in to charge on standby. Never had mine run out. For those complaining it only lasts 8 hours. Seriously. Get a life. If that's what you do regular then I feel truly sorry for you.
your battery lasts 8 hours? mine is close to the 3 hour mark. I probably have a faulty controller then. I just presumed all controllers had short battery life.
Quite a cool feature, but I rather have it pause screen.
Sounds cool, I'll be trying it out myself.
Yeah my battery died, he ran to cover and by the time I pluged in cable enemy came and killed me lol
My favorite hidden gem in inFamous..."Cole McG's Electronics". I like the thought of Cole and Zeke starting an eletronics repair conglomerate. Probably a proud corporate sponsor of the Conduit Rights League. A bit of a happy ending from the start of the series...miss those guys.
That's really cool!
