Sony’s best-selling Infamous series did X-Men games better than the actual X-Men

For decades, superheroes had the worst luck when it came to video games, the X-Men chief among them. There are a few welcome outliers—Raven Software’s X-Men Legends duology remains a classic, Wolverine’s game adaptation for his first solo movie has its silly charm, and you can still find the classic beat-’em-up cabinet in arcades everywhere—but there are more lows than highs, from Mutant Wars and X2: Wolverine’s Revenge, to the franchise’s last big stab at mainstream gaming respectability, 2011’s X-Men: Destiny. Sluggish and overwrought, the latter seemed to be the kiss of death for Marvel’s mutants, the precursor to their eventual fate years before they were kicked out of Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite. (Getting left out in the cold during Marvel’s big purchase by Disney probably didn’t help.)

When you find out that Kessler is Cole. Mind blown. It was so awesome

Nitrowolf21275d ago

Yeah I really wasn’t expecting that at all, loved it though and made me feel bad for him

Shame cause I thought 2 feel flat in comparison was hoping it’d be set up for us to fail and having to travel back as Kessler.

Easily could have made three focused around getting cole out of that loop.

Ah Infamous 2, such a well made game. I miss playing it and would love a remaster. Many people had issues with the story, but I myself enjoyed it. Maybe if I get back and play it I might realize why, but god damn I loved the game

Zeke681274d ago

It's a PS3 title, no need for spoiler tags....
Spolier alert Dr No is the bad guy in the first James Bond movie with the same name from 1962 end spolier alert
How long should it go on in your opinion? 😉

SCW19821274d ago (Edited 1274d ago )

Really? It came out 10 years ago. I think we are past needing spoiler warnings at this point.

lelo2play1274d ago

We shouldn't call them X-Men... feminists don't like it.

Zeke681274d ago

X-(Wo)men *fixed it*
Off topic: northern Sweden and we got 28C in the shadow, damn, my beer is cold for 1 minute and then boiling hot hehe

Sony needs to remaster both infamous games for ps4/5. Incredible games with pretty easy platinum trophies.

thatguyhayat1274d ago

Infamous 1 looking for the shards was a b*tch.

SamPao1274d ago

yeah that was indeed annoying :D

Silly gameAr1274d ago (Edited 1274d ago )

That was the only trophy I didn't get because it glitched out on me. I have Infamous 2 and Second Son Platinum trophy, but can't get that Infamous 1 plat. That always bugged me.

The_Hooligan1274d ago

The one that gave me hard time was killing 3 people at once by making them fall from a high place. That stunt was a bitch lol. But i really enjoyed the first two infamous games. I need to play second son though.

AspiringProGenji1275d ago (Edited 1275d ago )

I've actually thought the same thing and how Sucker Punch can expand this IP and have their own Xmen. I wish we get an sequel to Infamous 2's bad ending which gave everyone affected by the blast super powers

CBaoth1274d ago

Sucker Punch screwed the series by choosing the "good" ending as canon. Infamous 3 could've been exquisite if Cole ***SPOILERS*** had wiped out 7 billion on the planet. Absolute power corrupts absolutely, Cole should've been the antagonist or at the very least a tortured soul seeking redemption as he became the Beast. Far more interesting concept with intriguing story arcs but they played it safe with banal tropes of the modern political climate.

Andy_Dee1274d ago

Yeah I really enjoyed the first and second one. Never before had I played a game that was like this.

A new experience and the for me as a new fan!
