Spoiler Alert: Read Details about new power set of Infamous: Second Son at your OWN RISK
I'm not reading the article but that headline is completely the opposite of what everyone who is playing it on Gaf is saying and completely the opposite of the series as a whole. In fact it's one series that begs to be played twice. You get completely different power branches, completely different story branches, completely different missions and a completely different end. I COMPLETELY disagree ...
Guys I Just read the article there is spoilers but NO spoilers here in my comment... I think he's trying to say its repetitive but he's wording it as not having replay value, the author didn't write the article he's just quoting stuff from someone who has the game that he personally asked. Could go either way here
So one persons personal view over hundreds of personal views in Gaf ... I think I know which to believe.
I have the game and from my experience it will be the first game(other than the Witcher2) I play twice in years. And I'm usually a "one and done" kind of gamer. The story is different and even the way you play changes
your own dude, there may be all those people on gaf and this one guy but there not playing your copy, you are :-)
im one of the ones from Gaf. I got it on saturday afternoon and had the platinum by Monday afternoon. I did 100% in both evil and good playthroughs...so literally everything the game offers twice; and i finished in roughly 20 hours
I certainly think the game is worth playing twice, but that's only going to get you about 20hrs of playing time. I think that's what he means when he says it offers little replayabilty...
And everyone complained about $60 for a MP only game, yet a single player game with roughly 20 hours of gameplay that doesn't offer much re-playability after the 1st or 2nd play through, that's ok to spend $60 on.
But doesnt the playtime depend upon the player still. I could just decide to run around destroying stuff or wrecking havek for hours. 20 hours seems A-OK to me, I'm definitely not going to be speed running or just going from mission to mission every time I play not truly sucking in or exploring the open world.
@shadonic Absolutely. The bottoms line is different people are going to value things differently. There are things in the game the folks might find fun for hours after they eat the campaign twice. Other folks might be disappointed though, if they are used to the sheer number of side activities games like GtaV and assassins creed have to offer after the game is completed. Valid arguments for both sides, at the end of the day, the individual consumer will decide if it's worth it.
I always play inFAMOUS games twice, Evil approach to begin with ;) and then doing a hero playthrough
How can you COMPLETELY disagree if you haven't even played it?
Because it's all we've been talking about since the copies were leaked.
This game better deliver or PS4 fans are going to start questioning if the focus on resolution is hurting games on PS4.
Oh Pappy you try so hard but never succeed.
InFamous 1&2 already delivered(imo) so i have no doubt in my mind that SuckerPunch will do it again, i know exactly what kind of game im in for.
"if the focus on resolution is hurting games on PS4" - yh funny thing is that has not even been the main focus or mentioned a lot on here at all. Nice try. So according to you the feel for 1080p is not to do with the hardware being capable but to do with Sony forcing all devs to aim for 1080p and abandon gameplay mechanics because of that. It's a shame BF4 is 1080p and hard to be 30fps instead of 60fps.... Oh wait.... OT - So about 15 hrs par side is quite good so I don't see how it hardly has re playability seeing as you're going to see the other side of the coin in your second play through.
This game is @ 30fps. Would have benefited from 60fps over the 1080p resolution.
Yh but your argument wasn't that in the first place. I agreed pretty much every game would in some way. However, SP decided to spend their development effort on other aspects such as lighting, the particle system and such. If it's locked 30 or near it than that's fine also IMO for the a game like this and them focusing on the effects instead.
BP What open world game on any gaming console is 60fps? Open world games would not benefit from 60fps. The only genres I feel that benefit from 60fps is shooters, fighting and racing games. Every video I've seen of Infamous appears to be running very smooth even with a ton of chaos going on in the background.
I hope the game delivers, otherwise there will be drought of games until Watchdog on PS4. That said, the game looks gorgeous graphically.
Congratulations on winning the "most useless thread comment" award.
Stop it sir.
How does the game not offer replayability when the entire manner in which you play is changed when you are good vs. evil? Obviously you need to play both sides to capture the entire essence of the game. People have to remember that a lot of these guys who got the game early were just trying to burn through the game to release details before others could. Personally, I prefer to chill and enjoy games.
LMAO @ articles source: "my_bitches_love_me"
the author of the article is simply basing is opinion piece on someone else opinion from reddit....without even touching the game himself.
where does the author base someone else opinion as his, the title at both places says "Early Owner Impression on Infamous: Second Son"
i read the "my_bitches_love_me" replies to people wanting to find out what the game was like. In this article, the author has taken the 2 most negative replies he made, flipping it into a misleading article about the game . my bitches love me gave the game a 9.5/10 rating when asked to give his score. He also praised the game for how fun it was and how excellent the graphics were. This is just a troll article
This opinion comes from a minority. To the average gamer the last 2 inFamous games are good for at least 2 playthroughs with each playthrough being around 10 hours. That's more than most games these days.
Well i thought both games were bad the floaty controls are so offputting and the story is just weak My little nephew likes it a lot the second game He's 12 btw but i'm seriously not hyped for the third game and not going to buy it i seriously don't understand the hype surrounding it
Well I dont understand the hype for titanfall or a new halo...but it still exists. To me second son is why I play video games. They let me play out childhood fantasies...peobably why I am not much of a competitive shooter guy. Never had that kind of fantasy
halo is bigger than infamous. But i agree titanfall is overhyped. But the FPS genre is huge
If you recall correctly, there are 2 combinations of powers in inFamous 2 and people usually associated with with good and evil. You can actually play the good side with evil power and evil side with good power if you want to for different feel but yeah, there will still be just 2 endings but it will make how you approach the game differently too because you're having a set of power not made for that aide of the mission
You do realize that 99% of the time usually people that say can never back it up.
Thank goodness. My main concern with this game has been addressed. My only worry was that the game was going to be repetive but I'm relieved to see 2 pros are less repetive game play than the prior games and the missions dont drag on. On another note this game looks spectacular. Really can't wait to see what games looks like a year or two dorm now
Still buying the game day 1, Infamous 1 had a ton of content and replay ability, can't see why Second Son won't, but if it does, oh well, the game looks like a blast to play.
Cons Too few missions Wonky camera in melee combat No option to change the time of day after the game ends No option to hide the UI
If you enjoyed Imfamous 1&2, you'll enjoy this. Simple.
So every sequel to every game ever has been good as long as the first 1 of 2 were good? LOL Couldn't be farther from the truth but ok.. Not saying this game is going to be bad. It looks great. Can't wait to play it. Just saying, your logic is a little bit flawed. That's like saying. You loved GTA 3 so you would have loved GTA 4. Wrong.
Gotta agree with staple face here. I loved all past Halos before Halo 4 now just mentioning that game makes me shudder by how incredibly empty of the competitive fair Halo multiplayer action it was. The story was ok but more should of been put into the game to make the didact feel like more of a threatening enemy and evil. Still I'm so freaking ready to get second son!!!.
A dozen of other people in the Internet are publicly stating that they LOVE the game but this guy chooses to publish what baits the most clicks. Journos gonna journo
When everyone on GAF is saying the opposite , I think I'll ignore this troll article.
Merrin says all infamous titles are specifically designed for two playthroughs with alterations on gameplay it's worth it to play twice to increase longevity, article is a joke article
Well you can't really go off of gaf since it's full of Sony fanboys and shills kinda like this site. So its good to get an opinion from a source not associated where rabid fanboys lurk.
The average play time for a single player game is 10-20 hrs...sounds to me InFAMOUS delivered on play time. And the fact it gives you a reason to replay it for good or evil choices...replay value gets a huge thumbs up! If Metal Gear GZ can get 4/5 and 8/10 review scores for a 1-3 hour game, then I expect nothing less of InFAMOUS for a 15-20 hour game, with story, characters, gameplay, graphics...replay value!
Article published by an xbox fanboy incoming!
Considering that damage done to the environment is completely permanent, I can see why replayability is hindered in some regard. I can't imagine only being able to destroy the giant t-rex statue once, and then having to create a whole new save file to do it again. Rampaging through open-world maps is one of tbd greatest things you can do for replayability, yet it's seemingly impossible to do in Second Son without unfixable ramifications. Sure, you could create a new save file and just do whatever you please that way, but then you wouldn't have all your powers unlocked. Imagine if GTA games only allowed you to go on one rampage, because the game kept track of what you did and permanently saved all the damage you'd done. The fun of running around shooting people would be sucked out knowing it's impossibole to do at such an extreme again.
OK guys here's my worthless 2 cents on this creation of a video game called Infamous Second Son. Personally this developer in my opinion is not an organization that knows what PS4 gamers want. Infamous one and two were fine games I guess but not system sellers or "or my gosh gotta get this asap" kind of game. Sucker Punch is cruising by with this Infamous crap (there I said it crucify me now) on no ordinary system, we are talking about a recent launch of a next gen system! If I were any where in charge of game development at Sony HQ I would have defiantly and definitely had started a game 3 years ago on a type of game like oh I don't know what do most gamers really like maybe something like a first person Resident Evil 4 game but of course not copying and but an original and be creative about it Or a huge effen large muther effen awesome beyond means of a RPG game on a huge scale. I for one am upset that after preordering my PS4 and waiting waiting for a fuqqin good damn fuqq!n game rated M with edge of your seat action and thrilling ride of a game even more thrilling than Titanfall which I wish went multi platform so I can fuqq!n play it on my PS4 no I get to effen play Infamous NOT! I am not dishing out 70 bones on this pooh ooh look how pretty the graphics are oh and look I have this fuqq!n stupid super power oh and should I be good or a fuqq!n basterd. Effen lame. Wake up Sucker lack of excitement koolaid punch developer. We PS4 gamers are waiting for our own exclusive game which would make headlines all over the world on the best action thrilling game ever made and you can only find it on the PS4! Not this boorrring infamous shite. Sony start a fuqqin game, your budget $100,000,000 and create an original action thrilling masterpiece for fuqqin once and for all. Instead the same shite over and over rated 12 and under for the Teletubbies fans. But I keep on buyin Sony and more sony since PS1 all the way to PS4. I swear if the next AAA exclusive title comes out and its a game for little children and or a game with shittie effort in delopment based in creativity an originality or just a effen boring game I will send sony a letter explaining how I feel and it will smell of poop.
Nobody cares what you think lol. Nobody writes an essay about a game they hate unless they're trying to sway other people. If you don't like it, go find something else to do.. I'll be playing this beast of a game! :)
Hardly replayable? There is at least a second guaranteed play through since there is the other karma side- a whole changed story goes with it too.
the game is epic i completed it and i could say the entire game offers new stuf in comparision to inf 2 and 1.. + there is alot of replay value and things to discover or roam around
