gaffyh, a member of Gametrailers.com has scanned in the new inFAMOUS picture's from Game Informer. Enjoy!
OMG. I'm in awe, is this actually a sandbox game. Probably bullshots though seeing how this game is delayed till next year.
Is this game really similar to "prototype" or is it just me?
DJtyler, you're not alone. The game have many similarities though Prototype has a more one colored theme but game gameplay wise they are both about mixing sandbox with superhero abitilties.
but the question is who was made first?? and did they even know about each other?? here is what i think, i think prototype is like a person with powers of The Incredible Hulk, and inFamous is like powers of spiderman or similar in a way that he shoot things from his hand! my bet is on inFamous because its sony made game and its exclusive, so they will try to set new bar of that genre or at least i hope!! multiplatform games just aren't that much appealing!! with the exception of some games!! EDIT infamous looks like it will have a deep story with a lot of mysteries(prototype looks like just like the hulk experiment so far)!! i hope they will focus on the character a lot!! now let me go back to the scanned mag and see what i can learn more of inFamous!
All I know is that the Good/Bad karma system sounds really intuitive and complex. Not just the "save the guy or kill him" deal.
Well, both games were officialy unveiled during E3 2007. InFamours during Sony's note and Prototype by the GameInformer issue of July (The same month as E3). Also, powerwise, they are not really different. Sure there are enviromental differences but Prototype and InFamouse have a lot in common. Still with much more colorful style, promise of real player choice impact on city and finally, history of Sucker Punch are in favor of InFamous but Prototype looks really sick as well.
Disappointed big time. :(. Another game delayed?
It was never mentioned or announced for O8. This, along with Heavy Rain and Wardevil looked like 2009 titles.
Mmm Spring '09 is shaping up pretty nicely. FFXIII rumored for Spring '09 God of War 3 rumored for Spring '09 inFamous releasing Spring '09 Killzone 2 in Feb. Damn that's a great stretch of gaming.
It was a 2008 game
No delay here. This game was never given a release date.
this will kill gta4. better graphics and looks like better gameplay to. dis also kill crackdown.
It will have stiff competition in the sandbox genre in 2009 with games like 2 days 2 vegas and APB if you chose to put all sandbox games in the same light. Not sure inFAMOUS is a good game to compare to standard sanbox titles(GTA4). There's also a couple of multi platform games I forgot the names of. lol You must have been talking about CrackDown's gameplay not its cartoony cell-shaded visuals lol. Comparing Cell-shaded games with a game thats 3 shades of poop isn't logical lol. If you favor Science Fiction in the Sandbox genre you'll like that better by default. CrackDown was a good game if it had the depth of games like Saints Row and GTA it would have been stellar what do you know about InFAMOUS that warrents your comments?. lol
Won't even get a 50% gamerankigns score.Don't know about APB thoguh. Seeing how I haven't seen any gameplay, or screens.
typical power of green the biggest xbot always depending on multi u kno that 2 days 2 vegas is a multi and plus we got lots more games sandbox style eight days and getaway is not canceled they say they stopped making for now but they didnt say they canceled. edit i kno i think he started going mental wen e3 07 started. thats wen ps3 started to rise
Dont worry about people like him. Mental problems.
2 Days 2 Vegas vs. inFamous?? Get Real POG. Fresh horsesh*t looks better than 2 Days 2 Vegas
Infamous really looks great and I can't wait to see what will be shown at E3. Plus ngg12345 Sucker Punch never said Infamous was an 08 game.
One thing I am worried about. They are not saying anything about melee combat.
I really love the shot with the ruined city. I'm definitly more interested now. I knew Sucker Punch would not disappoint but finally getting a sandbox that player can be really good or really evil, both with full consequneces hasn't been done before. Awesome scans, shots and game.
Definitely looking forward to this...the controls have to be just right and responsive in a game like this...I'm sure Sucker Punch understands that...anyways, I'm excited :)
But with crisp shadows, and more detail overall. They stretched out a 720p frame to fill two whole pages, and it still looked really good. The 4x AA really helps out.
The game looks great,definitely impressed by what Sucker Punch are doing.
Maybe mine expired but still no new issue for me
I got mine Thursday.
Nothing for me yet, but the guys gametrailers gamepad said June 16th. I think mine should be here by Monday or Tuesday.
I seriously just got mine like 30 min ago (Before i saw this) so it should come soon
if they cant match the feel of liberty city
I wish I can zoom in on the scans. I might have to buy Game Informer to read this article fully. Serious potential! :)
I can zoom in to the and read the scans.
Just click on images and they'll open in a new window where you can zoom on them. You could also try saving them and then opening the saved ones in Photoshop or something like that.
Think the NBC show Heroes, but you get to be the one who is granted special powers that you never expected. And learn how advanced they are naturally. He will be a "lord of electricity", touching guns will be not useful, because they would just shoot continuously. He will be able to use environmental things like lightning, his powers will get stronger as he learns more of what he has been granted and what he is capable of. This is open world, no markers on maps, or missions what-so-ever. This will unfold naturally with the player. Zeke is his best friend, Trish is his ex-girl and this other guy trying to expose him. There are villians that use powers of course. The city is made up of 3 big islands. Each island is ran by different organizations (villians). Transportation around this huge city will be interesting. Not just flying. He can also take cover ANYWHERE! Every nook and cranny. Anyway, sounds like fun stuff. :)
is another first buy for me. I never liked sandbox games but this will be my first. I just love the concept. I am not too familiar with sucker punch though. Anyone knows if they are great devs like ND and Insomniac?.
They're pretty good devs, they made the sly cooper games.
Two words Sly Cooper http://www.suckerpunch.com/...
interested in this game. I hope they release it sometime next year around this time where gamers are drooling for games.
prototype and infamous are both sandbox open world games were your character has superpowers.....but im actually looking more forward to infamous, because i really liked the sly games and im interested to see what sucker punch can do on next gen hardware
This is looking great, I am honestly looking more forward to this than prototype mainly because they are going to be pushing the hardware to its limits.
In Infamous if i can than i'll be incredibly happy. There's not enough games where you play as the bad guy.
Main character still has red hair. That is so unappealing to most anyone. When you play a game you want to be able to connect with the lead character as much as possible. Red haired people are a minority and thus we can't know or sympathise with them as much as we could with dark or blond headed people. I'm a native American and I wholeheartedly believe that the reason we don't see Indians in games and films as much is because the public simply can't relate to us as well. I also believe this is why GtaSA didn't sell as well as vice city. nothing racial on my end, but I believe the black lead character hurt a lot of peoples pride. In closing, I won't be playing as this guy in my game anytime soon. Infamous looks like garbage and that's that. He reminds me of the lead from Bully or the kid from (A pup named scooby doo) the kid with the red hair that they always think is behind the mysteries but never is. This game was the perfect opportunity to give our character an identity. To make our own hero. The way he looks. The outfit he wears thru a fully interactive creative work shop. Imagine being able to give our hero a mask and design his outfit. To become a super hero, not some red headed guy running around shooting lightning with gay clothes on.
I want so badly see this game in motion. A gameplay vid for E3 sound good to me if really could happen on E3 ^__^
no sign of bright & clear sunny day... maybe because of the explosion. hmmm...
OMG did i just read that Infamous is set for Spring 2009 release:| I mean wow. I love the story background. Yes it has some similarities with Prototype. Which one will be better? Only time will tell. But to say the least Shane Kim was partially right, 2009 will be the year of PS3:P along with 2008:D Talk about momentum. Great lineup of 2008 and being carried over to next year. Sony should start pumping some consoles this holiday season to avoid shortage issues;)
compare to GTA4 its really looks good , :) hope to see another AAA sandbox game
Can't believe I haven't heard about this game. Looks great.
Definite buy for me love magic, love sandbox and most def love me some 3rd person shyt
