IGN summary of the Infamous backstory in 5 minutes
Thank you ign I seriously scoured the internet for something like this yesterday. Watching on my ps4 ign app right now. Thanks a million.
I thought it was a really great video for new Infamous players who never played the first two. A little off topic but Gamestop is taking collector's edition pre orders right now and I want to help out my fellow gamers who wanted one. http://www.gamestop.com/ps4...
Nice. Got my PS4 today and plan to pick up infamous. Never played the first two installments cause I've been gaming almost exclusively on PC since 2002. This is exactly what i was looking for. Edit: after watching the video I'm actually really hyped for Infamous Second Son. The plot sounded really interessting.
The first two games were amazing. If you ever get the chance, I would suggest playing them a little bit even though you now know the storylines. Somehow this game looks like even more fun. Cole and Delsin just seem like two different people though. One regretted his powers throughout both of his games, but the other seemed to have embraced them and accepted that the powers are a part of him. That's not a bad thing, but it's going to be different. I cannot wait to play with all of these new powers. Running in neon looks amazing. Only a few more days left. I hope you enjoy the game.
@Iloveps4: Well I might play them after second son. A friend of mine has a PS3 and both Infamous games. I was thinking about playing all the way through them with him before playing Second Son but now that I got a PS4 and Second Son coming I want to play it right away.
If anyone is interested, i believe the ps store is having a sale on inFamous 1 and 2. You can pick them up at 5 bucks each i think.
This pretty much sums it up nicely. But if you haven't played either of them yet I recommend doing so. Infamous 1 and 2 are some of the best open world games last generation. Definitely one of my favorite franchises to come out of the PS3 era.
The good ending of Infamous 2 was probably the closest I came to crying over the ending of a videogame. Storywise, Infamous 2 is the best superhero game I've ever played.
Dem Good Ending feelz doe. For real, inFamous 2 was such a great game.
*Spoilers ahead* I actually thought that inFamous 1 had a better storyline than 2. The first game's twist (Kessler) was just much better than the second game's (Jon). I also just didn't care much for New marais. Don't get me wrong, the second game was really good, but I just preferred the first game. It's weird too because I feel like it improved everything except for the storyline, yet I still prefer the first game. It doesn't matter though because they are both fantastic.
Am I the only one who plays as a good guy first so I can be an absolute bastard on my second play? XD
Actually I think the vast majority of people do that. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
I still saved hostages though.... Then beat them to death with the Amp...
Im also guilty of this lol
I've never been able to play as a villain. Even when I actually try, just difficult. I'm a good person. I want a cookie.
I actually never noticed how good the story was in Infamous games. Was probably too busy destroying stuff without a care. Wonder how I:SS will tie in.
And people say Infamous is strong on gameplay, weak on story. That was an excellent synopsis! I totally enjoyed my play through of Infamous 1 and 2 recommended playing through them to enjoy the full story! :) Can't wait for Infamous:Second Son
Those same people are also now saying inFamous is so pretty, it must have weak gameplay. Seriously, have they never actually played the game? If you find the gameplay weak, then maybe youre just not cut out to be the lead in the best Superhero game ever.
When you say best Superhero game ever do you include The Arkham series into that. Cause the Arkham games are some of the best I've played. Note: I haven't played any Infamous games yet. I'm looking foreward to playing Second Son though.
Malphite, I believe that the best superhero game was Spiderman 2. I played that game so much as a kid. I don't know what made that game so special. It was just fun. It actually made you feel like you were swinging around the city. The moves were epic. You just felt so powerful.
Malphite, Infamous and Batman are honestly the 2 best super hero Ips game Ips out now! And the Arkham games are all fantastic except for the one WB Montreal made! Once you've played Second Son, you'll see why Infamous is such a loved franchise from the infamous fans...
@Malphite Yeah, Im including Arkham. Why wouldnt I? While I enjoyed them (the first two anyway) I did find them to be overrated, especially the combat which people go on and on about. It was very dull to me, hit, hit, hit, counter, repeat. Not saying inFamous's hand to hand is deep or anything, but its combat is not just melee, it uses all of his powers. But the Rocksteady Batman games were still great. @Ilovetheps4 Yeah, loved Spiderman 2, especially Bruce Cambell. Thats exactly why I love inFamous. It makes you feel powerful. Scaling buildings, tossing cars, your different bolt powers. Its great. I can only assume the increased mobility and different power sets are going enhance that feeling in Second Son.
to all you who say infamous is weak on story 1 you probably didn'y play it and 2 you probably didn't pat attention if u did play it. second son i trust will have three great elements which are Graphics, gameplay, and story.
I hope SS gets a good DLC like Festival of Blood. Actually like FOB better than Infamous 2.
