From cover of GameInformer July:"Sony and Sucker Punch unleash a super powered sandbox game unlike any other" Awesome!
Cool, someone should have details up soon, cant wait for those!
Details? That has already been posted like 15 hours ago. Here, read it. Cover story is Infamous (Game looks f..king awesome) - "Infamous begins with a serene, panoramic sky view view of EMpire City on the title screen, with the words "press start flashing". ..once you push start, a massive explosion rips through the heart of the city. Six city blocks are consumed by flame...in the center, a man named Dylan staggers to his feet." - Dylan doesn't know how he got his powers and starts out apathetic. He then becomes invest in the city...or you can choose not to be at all. - Dylan can run up rooftops, scrambles across building archtecture, and can seek cover in unlikely nooks and crannies. - Sucker Punch striving for simple controls to do not so simple things - Empire City has 3 islands - After the explosion, the city falls into chaos. A plague makes the govt. quarentine the city. Gangs are formed. - Dylan's abilities evolve throughout the game - One fight saw Dylan and his friend Zeke against a bunch of guard. A couple of choices include zapping the mobs and flinging them off the bridge, or using your electricity on the environment (i.e. power generators that may be nearby) to create explosions. - Sucker Punch says "The hero's powers and te storyline are in support of the gameplay." - Dylan cannot use firearms since his powers are "always on" (meaning he would set off the gunpowder in bullets). The powers can complicate your actions within the world. - There will be other "villians" with their own powers that come into play. As well as other normal enemies with powers. - - Infamous isn't structured like other open world games with a marker on the mini map for your next mission. The team's goal is to create a world where events unfold naturally. - For example, you're on your way to disarm a bomb, but you notice a woman in the street bleeding and screaming. Time is ticking. What do you do? Your actions affect the world at large. Hence "Infamous". - Karma system keeps track of your actions ( I assume without showing you? Not sure). Your actions affect the actions of the citizens of the city. They may fight with you or ignore you or even help fight against you. Karma also factors into how your abilities develop.
Thank you, must of missed it :) Cheers! Sounds Kick Ass!
This sounds awesome... another must-have title.
Magazine subscriptions deliver about every 4 weeks, so I hope I get this issue in the mail by the end of the week. InFamous sounds like a real blockbuster for Sony. This new IP could really be a formidable opponent for GTA.
Details have been very vague so far so I'm going to try and keep my expectations down. Don't want to the hype to weigh the game down like a lot of other games. Anything open world is on my anticipated list.
we just recently lost the possiblity of playing 8 days or the The Getaway anytime soon yet we have so many great exclusive IPs coming that no one is even worried. Oh and my money for the mystery game is on it being Team Ico's game. PSN: Lifendz
I've been waiting for a city of heroes like game for a while, and this looks like it could be a good one. I don't expect this until early 09, but that's fine. We may see a death match between this and Crackdown 2.
Would love to see some game footage. Sounds like this will be an awesome title. :)
E3 is just month away, be patient and play MGS4 :)
is looking good!
This game is just unappealing to me on all fronts. The lead character design is horrible. I wish you could change clothes, hair something cause this chump looks just like the kid from Bully. Pretty lame.
mayb NG 2 game story suits you well since u don't like this type of gameplay. "events unfold naturally" is appealing enough for me
That is the lamest complaint list of a game (still under development) I have ever read. I hate this game too. The lightning looks too bright. Plus, his jacket looks like it's from the GAP and I'll only wear Polo so, he looks stupid. You can can't comfortably perform super moves in cargos like his, so again, this sucks. Look at the car he's standing on. It's looks like a VW. Everyone knows Hondas are the way to go. Nevermind Sucker Punch is a great dev and have yet to not deliver on a title.
Stop bashing every PS3 article, you make yourself sound desperate, if you it doesnt look apealing to you then dont comment. Go and play Itagaki's AAA game, oh wait.
"Sony and Sucker Punch unleash a super-powered sandbox unlike any other" PAWNAGE!!!! This game will sh!t all over the 360's grave after it is killed by MGS4!
was that really necessary?
This is the only good magazine anymore. They always have the exclusives, even before anything is spread on the internet.
The are my favorite mag. because i personally don't think the have taken a side in the console ware as yet. The only thing i hate about them is that i don't get my issues in time
In the front they always show what each editor is playing. Each editor is always playing at least 5 or 6 different games from any console out. They are as un-biased as multi-platform mags get. My interest in this game is high right now. :)
Usually a good mag, but the last 2 month i thought sucked. Qore was better. Half joking, anyways I'm looking forward to this one.
the scans are fvcking awesome the game seems really interactive and open-ended i really hope this makes 08 @Mc b-b-b-banned and it's really bought out the fanboy in me :), i just can't stop flaming i can't wait to get back in the gamer zone and be normal again i don't think i can take debunking any more of MART's BS
I see you like the open zone these days i too think infamous will be fun. bubbles4 u
It's no GTA, folks.
It's no UT3 either. What's your point?
You've played it?
Anyone who is this amped about a no real in game footage, a crap ass looking main character, and a few details of the game needs to go play a real game and stop hyping up a potential turd bomb. What they're talking about means nothing. Peter M has said similar things in the past about his games too. Fable, B.C. anyone? This game is going to tank for the fact the lead character looks like a Dragon Ball Z dork.
there is a trailer on the PS store and i think it has some in game footage just download it.
Yeah, the game footage from last year looked pretty lame. But I want to see how it looks now. His outfit has definitely improved, and the character looks more like a young man than little teenager (last year's design). Sucker Punch rocks, so have faith dude. ^_~
Obviously you haven't seen the trailer.
we have seen gameplay footage of this game in the past. So why don't you STFU
So, you can hate on a game with "no in game footage", but you cannot like it?
I don't have to see the game to know I don't like it already. I can just look at the main character and read about the gameplay elements. I have seen the trailer, by the way. Things I don't like The absurd clothes the guy is wearing The red hair The super innovative "elemental" powers c'mon guys this is an average game made by a great developer. they all make mistakes. Who made this characters looks etched in stone? Capcom listened when fans lashed out about Bionic commando's heros look. Sucker Punch are just arrogant and they probably made the guy look like someone on their team.
Lame response is lame. You're obviously trolling. Try having less nonsensical concerns. Hair color? Clothes? Really? You have no clue how anything in this will be implemented, yet, feel the need to talk it down as if you developed the damn thing. Amazing dude.
Silogon is just trying too hard...
why did you click on this story. Ignore anything related to this game. I don't need anyone telling me how someone's "hair" is gonna make the game suck. As, far as I'm concerned your trolling anyway. Every Ps3 story i hear you talking about how much its gonna flop. If the only place you can be positive is the 360 stories, then stay there.
So, Action, now I have to like a game even if i don't care for the main character? He/she is your main outlet. Without a connection to the main character you're out of pocket, man. Haven was a pretty good game, but the main character was just terrible. One of the worst of all time. Heavenly Swords Nariko was absolutley stale. These are just two examples of games with characters I do not have a connection with. 50 cent bullet proof, another example. It had some alright gameplay but I just don't connect with the guy. Tomb Raider, I hate Lara Croft. Do you understand what I'm saying here? If I don't like the main character why the hell would I play the game? He/she is my outlet into the game.
I get what your saying, but you are also generalizing and comparing the game when it is far too early to judge. I hated Claire in RE: Code Veronica, but loved RE still. There is more to a game than just the lead protagonist.
Prototype + Crackdown
Infamous will use Blu-ray to its advantage and crap on those games.
bad thing? EDIT: good show, was just asking i mean, with your rep and all..... didn't really know what to think nahmsayin?
i didn't say the game is gonna be bad ? crackdown is a great game and i had a lotta fun playing it prototype looks cool so i didn't say infamous is gonna suck EDIT : n.p heyheyhey it's cool :)
I smell YET ANOTHER B quality PS3 exclusive. Soooooo excited!
what you smell is the bullshit from your mouth
They all can't be Viva Pinata, Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Beautiful Katamari, Bomberman: Act Zero, Bullet Witch, PGR4, and Tenchu Z. Right?
Sad about NG2 still? You still think Halo 3 deserves AAA? LOL Bioshock is coming to PS3, so PS3 is ahead in AAA buddy. You better pray ME stays, cause PS3 will fix all those problems it had running on 360. On gameranking Uncharted is 90% even though we all know it should be higher. Why is GTA IV (PS3) and higher on gameranking than 360? PS3 wins again. As usual. From here on out! :)
I smell another B quality troll. MODS!!! if you will, would you please remove this fool to the open zone. He doesn't deserve to be here. The only B quality game thats out is NG2...ouch.
Face the facts guys, he has red hair. Nuff said. http://image.com.com/gamesp... That's who the main guy looks like. To a T! As I said before, Sucker Punch are fantastic dev's with stylish art designers they should have come up with something better than this pile of garbage.
so you dont like the game becuase it has a person with red hair? maybe i dont like people that have rubic cubes with faces as avatars ;)
It pours out of you...
Similar to Psi Ops not saying it is Psi Ops considering with the Psychic powers and all oh god they should make more psychic games like this and this will be my first time but can some one bubble me up?.
It might end up being one of those, good game not many will hear about, depending on it's release date. Sony sucks and marketing their games.. no ones really hyping this game, so we'll see
Sony's been focusing on their 2008 lineup, and you can only market so many large titles in one year. This is an '09 game, so you'll start to see less emphasis on titles like Killzone and Motorstorm near the latter half of the year and more emphasis on titles like God of War, Infamous, etc.
I want to know the review of MGS4. What GI gave it. I trust them blindly.
10.0 and 9.75
MGS 4 - 10, 9.75 - "MGS4 accommodates player choice unlike anything I have ever seen, providing you with the tools to overcome obstacles in any way you choose." "The freedom even extends to the Boss Fights." "...a landmark gaming experience that continually astounds with it's variety, depth, and intelligence."
You better believe the creaters of sly can make a game. Infamous is turning out to be a killer ap for PS3. I'm hopeful and so should every other ps3 owner.
This will be another HAZE, well, at least is not a FPS. Get Excited PS3 owners!
at least it is not Vampire Rain, Kameo, Bomberman: Act Zero or Hour of Victory
Does your life consist of anything other than trolling hour after hour. Come on dude grow up, get laid, play b3yond. If you do those three things you'll be a happy man.
Sony needs to flood the market with killer aps. They never reduce the price on their games so it shouldn't matter if people buy it when it comes out or months later. But having more games out at once will attract more PS3 buyers, and sooner or later those buyers will get around to buying a game released along other big games.
That has got to be one of the most badass covers I have seen in a while. I hope thats what the box-art is gonna look like.
I want the cover of the game looking exactly like this one... me like it!
