inFamous 2 producer talks inspirations and upping the game. Standing alongside names such as Uncharted, Resistance and LittleBigPlanet in the Sony exclusive garage has done nothing but spur Sucker Punch on when it comes to developing inFamous 2.
I'm sure UC2 has inspired a lot of devs.
I am sure as an exclusive devloper ,they have connections with Sony in-house and can leverage some of the technical resources and data to help with the complex rigorous orders of SPU and GPU design to help make a game that can outclass most Other console multi-platformers? It's well known this is how Sony got so far with these brilliant next Gen titles of late.
"Uncharted 2 made us think 'we have to be vastly better" Good, I wish all devs for action/adventure games felt that way.
Amen! Uncharted 2 really flipped the industry on it's side! No one was expecting it to be that amazing!
I still get chills when I see their [old] E3 conference on-stage demonstration.
Whats Uncharted 3 going to do then ;)
Build a bigger trophy cabinet?
BTW, to head off a flame war - I don't think he was claiming they were trying to be better than UC2, so much as better than I1.
I hope they are trying to make a better game than U2. Competition makes for better games.
Better *game*, sure. But I didn't express myself clearly - when Fleming referred to U2, he was talking specifically about graphics. I2 is an open-world game, and *can't* have U2-level graphics (though I'd love for someone to prove me wrong). But judging from the beta, they've got better graphics than I1 or any other open-world game I've seen.
I think Uncharted, Infamous and MGS4 are the best games so far. They have managed to do what games are supposed to do and that is to entertain. I find those game just to be pure awesomeness.
i agree 100%. I'm assuming you mean Uncharted 2, though I would put 1 in there as well. I personally would add God of War III to that list. The only negative to playing those 4 games is that now i compare every game i play to them. I get enjoyment out of most games that i buy but always compare them now!!!
Damn forgot GoW3. Awesome game as well. I mean Uncharted as a series. I liked the first one just as much as the second. I have the same problem as you. As soon as I play a game now it's like "damn, couldn't they have made the gfx like Uncharted" or "couldn't they use the same AA tech like in GoW3" and so forth.
Uncharted 2 is the measuring stick of video games.
people usd 2 claim b4 uc2 tht games nvr inspire othr competitors specially whn actn-advntre games wr considrd... but no sooner uc2 launchd n showd its prowess, evry othr critic n developer bowed b4 d KING!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ezio you should get IP banned , forever for that kind of insult , clearly you are mentally unstable , and people like you can't be part of any community, i even feel bad for you poor kid :(
I love the first party Playstation developers. I like very much how they are comparing to each other and helping each other being better. Guerrilla Games, Sucker Puch, Zipper Interactive, Naughty Dog etc. are like very good friends. That's something we maybe never see with Microsofts games. Because they don't have so many first-party developers as Sony.
You know I still don't understand why we have crap games. I would seriously like to be in a game studio watching a game be developed from start to finish. Good game or bad, I just don't see how someone would even put their name on a crap game. Say for instance were using the 10 scale. 7 and above ok acceptable. but 6 and more to the point 5 and below...how is this acceptable. I wonder does releasing the game cover the losses. Or do they at this point just try to break even.
is good that they felt this way because inFAMOUS 2 is looking mighty fine right now.
"We find games like Uncharted, Resistance and LittleBigPlanet to be inspirations for us. We look at those games and say, 'We have to be better." Ouch, no mention of killzone? Sounds like they never played killzone 2. They must have only played killzone 3's singleplayer, in which i can then understand the omission.
*meanwhile at activation* "just slap some story on that old engine n release it as MW3."
And thank god for that. Because it shows in the game Infamous 2 looks to be a lot better than the first one. The first one was great by the way.
