GearNuke: "New inFAMOUS: Second Son footage shows off more of the nighttime traversal and neon powers of Delsin."
Chuck Norris approves. http://verbositybookreviews...
Everyone approves. This game is the sh*t Will buy day 1 Infamous 1 -Amazing INfamous 2- Great The series had a REALLY good trackline as of yet and I feel like second son is a fresh new experience rather than a cash grab like some games *cough*cod*cough I feel as though the devs totally spiced up the gameplay and made it even more amazing and unique than the first two titles. Hopefully it has the OUTSTANDING replay value and gameplay hours as the past two games but no doubt in my mind it will and it will even blow the past two games out of the water (which is a pretty big feat considering how good they were)
Dammit! Accidentally disagreed. :(
I hope the karma choices are better though. In past games the karma choices are bland and obvious. Do you want to blow up the enemy camp so it'll be easier to take out the rest of the enemies? But there are civilians in there. Blowing them up will kill the civs. Of course you'll choose the one that'll fit what you want to play as for this playthrough.
Sony be building
next gen starts march 21st.
Evil neon powers look so nice, only 3 weeks left!
I said i would go media blackout for this game but i just couldn't resist watching this video......those real time reflections on the ground look amazing and i think neon is shaping up to be my favourite power in any open world game. I love the burst of speed and colour.
Haha! Love it!
A lot of people are raking on Infamous for lack of dynamic shadows. Its an OPEN WORLD game that looks just as good as linear Ryse. Compare Infamous to Dead Rising 3. DR3 ran at 720p and barely hit 30 frames. infamous runs at 1080p, to have the game look this fantastic, high quality textures, lighting and reflections, AND then ask for dynamic shadows, that's a bit much asking for an OPEN WORLD game coming out in LAUNCH WINDOW. On the flip side, Ryse was linear, had repeated enemies and was 900p. Stop looking at the little things guys. Infamous: Second Son is made from the old 4gb ram devkits too. You guys make it sound like the lack of dynamic shadows will make the game shovelware.
Looks like you can combine powers in this case neon and smoke. Looks awesome can't wait, the game is right around the corner.
I didn't see smoke to be honest, I thought it was because he was playing as evil Delsin. Like in Infamous 1 & 2 where if you were evil your electricity became orange/red.
Exactly what I was going to say, beat me to it.
True good point. I forgot about that aspect of Infamous.
oh man what about this one http://www.youtube.com/watc... and yah it is DAYM HOT!!!!!!!!!!!
"In another brand new video, we see Cole traversing the city at night, and showcasing his powers of Neon, which look glorious." Hmm some gaming journalist, refers to the playable character as both Cole and Delsin. On topic: seems that they never added dynamic lighting to the car and street lights. Never noticed it until someone else pointed it out to me. Sorry if I'm doing the same
Wow, the lighting looks fantastic!
It's all pre-baked. Delsin has no shadow at nighttime and the reflections are realtime, the evil neon effects look god-like though. I might play do an evil playthrough first this time, which will increase the chances of getting it canonized for the inevitable next game.
I'll gladly give up dynamic streetlights and shadows for that gorgeous neon power lighting and particle effects.
Pre-baked is harsh, those reflections and effects are anything but
Monkey- Go back and look at the video. the shadows for most objects including the player, enemies, and cars are not rendered using global dynamic lighting. Just look towards the end when you're in front of a car with its headlights on. lol. No silhouette, no shadow cast, no dynamic lights... It seems that Sony fanboys have a thing for bright, flashy lighting effects. So much so that between that and their love for Sony, they haven't noticed one bit how the game's graphics have been dumbed down A LOT from when they first showed it off.
Would have preferred them at least putting low quality shadows I'll still enjoy the game, but the lack of character shadows is noticeable especially with all the different lighting sources in the game
Ooo purty ! ...
It won't load for me. Does anyone have an alt. link?
It worked after several tries for me.
This game looks so damn sharp. The gameplay looks smooth and sexy. And to think it's a PS4 launch window open-world game... To think of what is on the horizon... My God.
HELP I have £75 GAME UK credit, the shop will flog this for £54.99 I know they will but their online has it £47.99 issue is it doesn't let you pay for orders using your GAME account card IF a title is unreleased so do I buy day one at a high price or just place and pay for the order online on release day, I don't want to say £54.99
Just use your credit on something else later and buy on line for the best price. Their just ripping you off otherwise.
Loved BOTH Infamous's on PS3, & this one doesn't look any different. Can't wait for it, day 1 purchase for me.
Im just worried it may do a shadow fall on us, pushing the visuals in all the stuff we have seen but when it came to the game, shadow fall was just another shooter I hope this game has suprises and stuff we havent seen before in the series.
This is Sucker Punch and the InFamous franchise we're talking about. So I highly doubt it will pull a "Shadow Fall". Its the best super hero/villain games ever. OT:Man the video won't load for me, and judging NY the comments its amazing.
I agree that they are a great dev, i just want it to be great and dont want to be disappointed as its the only next gen game for me til witcher 3 really :P Not long til we find out
I think people are expecting too much at the start of a new generation. Ryse was just another hack and slash, Forza was just another racer, Killzone was just another shooter, NFS Rivals was just another racer, AC4 was just another open world AC, BF4,COD were just shooters, Lego Marvel is just another Lego game......but they all look visually better than last gen versions...(apart from CoD lol) I think that's what we should expect for a while, better looking versions of what we have always had, this is what happens every gen. There will be innovations to gameplay but expecting them this soon from every single game is unrealistic. I think it's more realistic to expect small innovations from games in the same franchise, rather than massive innovations that will change the industry from every game. You're right, Killzone was just another shooter, but games like Infamous SS aren't a dime a dozen like shooters are. You have a detailed open world seattle with a superhero (or villain, depending on your style) with some really cool, unique powers that we have never seen in videogames before. We also have 2 past Infamous games that should reassure us this is going to be great. I don't see why anyone who is a fan of the old games will be disappointed by Infamous SS. Take Titanfall for example, it's just another shooter, right?....But it has little innovations like free-running, jetpacks and mechs. And while those things have been done before individually....im not sure there is a game with all 3 of those together in it. Those are the kind of innovations to gameplay i expect from the vast majority of games.....and every now and again we will get a big innovation, but those will be rare.
screw the shadows. We have seen that is shadows when its light in Seattle in the e3 video there was good shadows. Dark less of course. Who cares ?
Exactly, I want to slap people who nitpick with the shadows, I'm still use to playing games where the only shadow you have is a little dark circle underneath you. So last gen and current gen games with bad shadows don't kill me, and whenever I play a game on my PC shadows are the first thing to go.
As good as this game has looked, I don't think it'll compare to native 1080p right in front of me. Can't wait to play it. Infamous 2 seems so long ago. Have they said what the frame rate is?
30fps. But a recent previewer said it appeared to be running above 30fps....not 60fps, just "above" 30fps. I hope that's not the case in the final game, i don't want a fluctuating 30-40fps. Keep it locked at 30fps.
Can't wait I've been looking forward to 2nd son. I've been playing Infamous 1 & 2 to refresh on game play. 2014 is going to be a great year for Playstation....... Gamers Game On....
Damn....i just remembered, ive never actually played the first game all the way through myself. I watched it being played when it first released at a friends house, but i didn't have a PS3 then. I still have the game on my PS3 from when Sony gave us free games because of the PSN hack. Well, guess i better play the first game before SS releases.....Ive heard constantly that it's better than the 2nd game, and i really enjoyed the 2nd game.
Suckerpunch said if you didn't get all the blast shards in the 1st game Second Son will not play for you. Hope you got them all.....
I've never heard anything about that. That would make zero sense for them to do that.
Lol I'm just joking man.
Wow did u notice now when he's evil the neon Power is a Little bit red. Before when they showed good. The neon was a Little bit lighter. Cool
That's how it's always worked.
So hyped for this game! Does anyone know if they HUD is removable? That thing looks so ugly and out of place to me
sorry to interrupt but this looks boring as hell. could've been a reason to buy a PS4 but ... nope!
Because your a hardcore Xbox One fan who is bitter. Anyone can tell what you are by reading your comment history. :I
Well judging by inFamous, inFamous 2 and Festival of Blood, boring is the last thing this game is. I think you meant to say gorgeous or exhilarating but in case you didnt, dont let the door hit you on your way out.
hahahahaha!!!!! well said , well said
Well that's a good thing since you probably couldn't have found a ps4 to buy, anyway, because you know, their all sold out and stuff.
