truly is the new great PS3 exclusive that everyone was waiting for. It is the first game since MGS4 that I haven't been able to stop playing. The platinum trophy can be had in two play-throughs, and the story is great fun. I would highly recommend picking this one up ASAP.

Genesis53102d ago

Yep just started playing it last night it's great. I'm hooked for sure.

Nineball21123102d ago

I don't have it yet, but I'll probably get this one as my next game. :-)

I've only heard great things about it.

I can see that a lot of my PSN friends/contacts are playing this game when I look at their Gamer Card. :D

butterfinger3102d ago

I'm at work right now, and this is the first game in a looonnngg time that I can't wait to get home to play every day. :)

meepmoopmeep3102d ago

it's a lot of fun, i'm having a blast with it

joydestroy3102d ago

haha, yup i can't wait to get off work too just to go home and play it. almost through with the first island.

SL1M DADDY3102d ago

Great title. I had a blast last night playing it and can't wait to get home from work to play it some more!

Keith Olbermann3102d ago

this is an amazing game and it deserves a better score on metacritic. I think it just shows how bad metacritic is getting. Really this is the funnest game i have played in years.

dacrowxc3102d ago

Yup, I guess I am like everyone else, can't wait to get out of work and play this game.

kevnb3101d ago

it doesn't mean much, its just a bunch of blog reviews mixed in with a few real websites.

Chris3993101d ago (Edited 3101d ago )

Stop spamming N4G and pick yourself up a PS3. Heck, play a game on any console for that matter, but if you're going to log onto a SOCIAL NETWORK, try being, you know, SOCIAL.

So unless your idea of friendship is stalking people through binoculars or calling someone's house and hanging up, you might want to leave a message or two to let us all know what you're thinking.

Anyone can drop a fly by "disagree", it takes an ADULT to state and stand by their opinion.

/end rant

Oh, and inFamous is pure gold, one of the best open world games I've played (que random disagree over what games I have enjoyed in my lifetime, apparently :) )

specialguest3101d ago (Edited 3101d ago )

Infamous wasn't a demo I rushed to download and play like KZ2. I started playing the demo without any high expectations and to my surprise, it was actually an enjoyable experience. I knew after 15mins of playing that this game will be a buy on my payday.

locos853101d ago

This game is sick! Love every minute of it and can't wait to get home and blow more stuff up. Evil is awesome!!!

Alvadr3101d ago

Well my copy arrived today. Just eating my dinner then im gonna sit down and give it some quality time :)) Gonna be a late night for me I think

lh_swe3101d ago

if you disagree then say why, no wait you probably don't own a ps3 and you haven't played the game, Chris399 you are right on target, I have no problem with someone coming out and saying I played the game and hated it, because some games appeal more to some than they do to others.

Loved the Demo, now started the actual game and I am hooked, more than fallout 3, more than Saints Row 2, maybe even more than with Killzone 2 or Mass Effect, I'll find out soon enough.

remanutd553102d ago

loving it , just got a question , how do i make stunts??

himdeel3102d ago (Edited 3102d ago )

...like:

Meleeing someone with a full combo
Jumping and shooting and killing/ko enemy while still in the air
Throwing a grenade onto an enemies body sticking it to them and blowing them up
Jumping onto a pole and shooting enemy as you slide down it
Punching enemy force pushing them off a building
Punching enemy force pushing them and then shooting them in the air (with a head shot)
Force pushing enemy and shooting them in the air (head shot)
Jumping and throwing a grenade and attaching it to enemy
Throwing one grenade then another causing the first to prematurly explode the second
Killing someone by force pushing a car on them and blowing up the car in front of them

Those are the only ones I can think of that might be considered stunts that I've performed. I didn't spend much time in the menu besides purchasing upgrades, seeing movies, hearing dead drops, and looking for missions in the map. So I'm not sure if they have a way to see what specific stunts are yet. I have 9/21 completed though.

I'll check my trophies on PSN website and edit in a moment...

EDIT - I'm one stunt away from Stunt Coordinator Trophy :(

Dead_Cell3102d ago

Sticking it to an enemy,then force pushing them into a crowd.
Think it's classed as a stunt,either way it looks great.

himdeel3102d ago

...Throwing one grenade then another causing the "second" to prematurely explode the first one

Baba19063102d ago

i got it today and i must say its so muuuuuuuuuuchfun. i have an examen tomorrow so i have to stop playing but i cant wait to play it again. i loooooooove it and i cant wait to get the grantes hihi. love it.

talltony3102d ago

F all the negative reveiws cause you would be doing yourself a great disservice to not play this game.

Man_of_the_year3101d ago (Edited 3101d ago )

so you are guaranteeing that if i play this game i will like it as much as you...you don't seem to want to give much credit to other people for having different opinions or different likes and dislikes.

Sounds like a fanboy comment of yours...a particular group of fanboys. Where your opinion is god and anyone elses opinion don't matter and if their opinion is not equal to yours then they are wrong.

TheColbertinator3101d ago

@Man of The Year

lol Are you new to this site? I realized the first day I was on n4g

talltony3101d ago (Edited 3101d ago )

How the hell is that a fanboy comment? Sure maybe some people wont like it but you should like open world games in order to review this game and if you like open world games then I can guarentee that you will enjoy infamous.
If you dont want to play this game then say you dont like all open world games because this is one of the best!

likedamaster3101d ago

Infamous offers no way to drive cars or shoot weapons/guns. I'll pass, thanks though.

talltony3101d ago

Maybe I shoulds specify better. If you like open world "super hero" games then I CAN GUARENTEE THAT YOU WILL LOVE INFAMOUS!

I'm unemployed and getting it Friday. I have a question. Will I go outside again in the foreseeable future?

butterfinger3102d ago

on how you want to play it. If you are going for the platinum trophy (like I am), you will definitely want to play through it at least twice. The game is so much fun that for the first time ever, I immediately started playing it again after I finished beating it the first time. You could spend countless hours just figuring out new ways to kill people and performing all of the stunts. The platforming is also amazing, although Cole can be a little too sticky at times. The story was easily good enough to keep me in it (unlike Gears of War or Killzone 2), and the ending is great. I can't wait for inFAMOUS 2! lol

Chris3993102d ago

Purchase a few weeks of supplies (nutritional shakes will do) and some diapers.

That's how the hardcore do it anyhow :)

/joke

Seriously mate, it's an awesome game. Just finishing up some paperwork, then I'm playing for most of the day. And if you think this is bad (and have a taste for JRPGs), wait until Demon's Souls comes out. Put 115 hours into that game and will probably go back to it after inFamous.

Happy gaming!

boodybandit3101d ago (Edited 3101d ago )

employment issue in these rough times. Hopefully something will come your way soon. Until then enjoying the time off playing Infamous sounds like an ideal plan.

Back on topic.
I haven't had a chance to pick the game up yet but a friend of mine called out of work today (ironically enough) to keep playing the game and he isn't even into this style/genre. I am guessing it must be pretty damn good since he never almost misses work.

@Chris399
That is definitely hard core and made me LOL. Personally I don't wear diapers ;) but I did install a bathroom and mini kitchen next to my gaming room in the basement. So I guess I am "kinda" hardcore.
