Don't you mean Mario 64's? :P
ShinMaster  +   589d ago
Funny that unlike Ghosts, the fish AI actually works in Infamous SS.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   589d ago
The sad part is they took time to mention the fish AI yet it doesn't work and look at those fish sprites. Oh man.
ziggurcat  +   589d ago
remember when the initial waterfall of ridicule happened, infinity ward tried to backpedal, and say they were just joking?
thunderbear  +   589d ago
Technically this is really easy to do. Considering the particle setup they already implemented had this would be a few hours of work at most. Fun easter egg though.
showtimefolks  +   589d ago
this put COD:Ghosts AI to shame
DoomeDx  +   590d ago
Really? Almost a year later and we still make fish AI jokes? :p
HighResHero  +   589d ago
I think it's still funny.
randomass171  +   589d ago
'Tis quite a good jab, I would still say.
elhebbo16  +   589d ago
It has bin used more than arrow to the knee by now.
Shnooze  +   589d ago
Not even close.
torchic  +   589d ago
you clearly weren't around for "arrow to the knee"
ginsunuva  +   589d ago
That 'Murican eagle just said the word "bin."

That's a turrist word there!
elhebbo16  +   589d ago
@torchic I've been around all that BS, but yea I'm probably exaggerating a bit.
Christopher  +   589d ago
Yeah, not even close. Massive exaggeration there ;)
cyclindk  +   589d ago
What is this "arrow to the knee" you speak of? Tell me about it?
Xulap  +   589d ago
@cyclindk I was planning to tell you about it, but then I took an arrow to the knee.
NarooN  +   589d ago
The difference between 'arrow to the knee' and the fish jokes is that the fish jokes are actually funny.
Downtown boogey  +   589d ago
Never saw that before, so...
totallysane  +   590d ago
good thing he didn't have cole mcgrath powers. electricity in water is a bitch
aCasualGamer  +   589d ago
I never really understood why Cole couldn't be in water. We today have electric eels capable of shocking preys in water and they cope with it just fine.

I never got why Cole, a superhuman with magical electric powers, couldn't cope the way an electric eel copes with it.

If it's in his cells the way it's in an electric eels cells, then it shouldn't be a problem for him to be in water. The only difference from water and air is the amount of voltage. But since he gets stronger the more voltage he absorbs, doesn't that mean he'd be stronger in water?
randomass171  +   589d ago
Keep in mind Cole was from the first (and technically second) InFamous games. Think back to Crash and Spyro. Any character almost always have to have water be a hazard in their first game. :P
elhebbo16  +   589d ago
It had more to do with the limits of the game than the story itself.
GdaTyler  +   589d ago
Time span in Infamous 1 to 2 is about a couple months. I doubt he controlled the powers well at all yet. If he had them for a long time I could understand.
BlackTar187  +   589d ago
Well they're alot of issues with comparing our internal make up to an eels.

Taht said dude had super powers sooooooo
NeoTribe  +   589d ago
Dude im pretty sure they just did that to create a boundry. Dont think they intended anyone to myth bust what they were going for lol.
BlackTar187  +   589d ago
obviously Neotribe. Intended or not (not obviously) doesn't mean you can't further explain it outside of their intention.
totallysane  +   589d ago
the powers were also new to him, and probably didn't have control over them as much as we saw. he probably constantly had an outside layer of electricity waiting to be shot. when you did get him in water, you would see electricity climbing all around him.
Sy_Wolf  +   589d ago
An electric eel can go in a car without it blowing up of come in contact with a gun without it blowing up. An electric eel also doesn't cause huge amounts of visible electricity to shoot up 3 feet from the water (when cold runs through a puddle that happens)
The_Infected  +   590d ago
Call of Duty: Ghost is a joke. I'm actually looking forward to the next Call of Duty since Ghost was a massive let down. I actually hate it so much I want even touch it. First time I've hated a Call of duty game this much.
ironfist92  +   589d ago
UHm...this article is about Infamous, not COD...
The_Infected  +   589d ago
It's comparing to Ghost. Can't you read between the lines? Lol
dale_denton  +   589d ago
you mad bro?
ginsunuva  +   589d ago
Next CoD sucks, I'm looking forward to the one after that one since it was a massive let down.

@mystic and memots

You clowns finished yet?
OutcastMosquito  +   589d ago
Ghosts wasn't that bad. It was tolerable.
MysticStrummer  +   589d ago
They should put that in their advertising…

Gamers enthuse - "It's tolerable!"

In this age of remakes or like dragon knight likes to calm them "cash grab"
They should make call of duty : ghost tolerable edition
lawgone  +   589d ago
@MysticStrummer...I still play Ghosts but that was pretty funny. It's definitely missing something. Or maybe we're just getting tired of them not fixing some of the problems. Plus the Ghosts story is not interesting or engaging at all.

Fish AI is more innovative than Cranky Kong.
memots  +   589d ago
And the future is fish A.i
Bahamut-Shin  +   589d ago
with all this "fish ai" I wonder when we'll get a got fishing game.
Allsystemgamer  +   589d ago
They'd just swim away from the lure. May have to mix this fish ai with Titanfall ai. Jk
uncharted56  +   589d ago
Its all fun and jokes until the Fish gets hurt MAN!
waltyftm  +   589d ago
Cool stuff.
r21  +   589d ago
Fish powers confirmed.

Holy crap... I really want an Aqua Man game made by Sucker Punch.

I'm still waiting the amazing Fish AI of Ghosts in the new Ecco: The Dolphin.

COD killer confirmed ;)
sander9702  +   589d ago
This was really fun but can they start focusing on giving us something to do after completing the game my PS4 is just collecting dust ATM
Studio-YaMi  +   589d ago
You need to play FFXIV,it's a BLAST.
sander9702  +   589d ago
I'm not that into MMO's but thank you for the tip!
IRetrouk  +   589d ago
Have you been doing the paper trail?, adds a fair bit of gameplay both on and off screen.

Who says "fishes?" That's some preschooler language

He used the word correctly.
kevinsheeks  +   589d ago
Let him be cool dammit :(
Rockefellow  +   589d ago
Well, I suppose he could have been talking about a singular species of fish in a large group. I didn't watch the video, though. I'm just used to people submitting articles with errors up the wazoo

So I gues unlike Cole, Delvin can take a shower and not die :p
assdan  +   589d ago
Feel a little bit bad for the guy that said the fish thing. That's probably the most mocked quote I've seen in gaming.
LKHGFDSA  +   589d ago
video doesn't play for me.
weird that the devs wasted their time making this joke AI when no one would see it and it's not even funny.
KnownAsEpic  +   589d ago
I hope it doesn't turn out to be a thing.
Ninjatogo  +   589d ago
That's pretty cool and amazing how each fish casts a shadow.
I want to see them do even crazier things with the particle system in their next game.
NiteX  +   589d ago
Finally the power of "next gen" consoles has been realized!
MegaRay  +   589d ago
I cant believe watchdog doesnt have fish ai, last generation is holding it back I see.
thejigisup  +   589d ago
Still have nothing on bf4 megalodon AI
Irishmandkg  +   589d ago
Didn't realize you can't swim in Second Son. Reminds me of AC1, was so annoying.
fleecejohnson75  +   589d ago
I am actually kind of let down by the lack of mockery & fish ai jokes since it's beeen on display so prevalently before with no restraint. Heck comments & A.I. talk like this from devs like this is usually fair game & makes for comedy almost all the time. I mean hell, TitanFall's still fair game (even in this & other unrelated articles) & it's time's come & gone. Guess that it just depends on who makes the game & if it's one we favor, like or accept; because darn it, I came looking for the jokes.
plaZeHD  +   589d ago
Seriously though it looks incredibly amazing. All the animations and all look incredibly realistic.
bornsinner  +   589d ago
so they can do fish AI but no dynamic shadows at night... no it wasn't hardware limitations was it fanboys? lol
Farsendor1  +   589d ago
e3 prediction infamous second son fishing dlc, catch the most realistic fish in playstation history in this super pack dlc for the cheap price 100$.
KrimsonKody  +   589d ago
Maybe I'm missing something, but...just how much AI do fish need?
Don't they have very feeble memory?
So, the fish swarming away from you, then returning after a few seconds?
il-JumperMT  +   589d ago
You cod do better.

Person #1 - What is going on ?!
Person #3 - Meh CoD still has best Fish AI !
Crowd - weirdest silence ever...
Person #1 - Dude you better run.
