man i do love terror!
This game... KZ2... MLB... Uncharted 2... and maybe even GoW3... Nice 2009 line-up for PS3 fans right there I understand that Sony's in this to make money, but I really hope a price drop is coming sooner rather than later. More people need to experience the often underrated & overlooked PS3 exclusives (Heavenly Sword, Warhawk) as well as the blockbusters (MGS4, Uncharted)
The moral choices, at least from what they've shown, hold your hand and are only presented in shades of black and white. Wish they'd nuance that more, because it looks great otherwise.
It's probably not my place to intrude but if you will please give comparisons. I have read many of your comments if I stumbled into them upon an article and most of the time you seem to say average graphics, and how unoriginal things are. To which game are you comparing inFamous graphics with? Also how can anything be original in a world which is limited by the imagination we have already built upon? Take a look at the First Person shooter genre, over time everything will be slightly similar (whether weapon or story-wise) but overall it has it's differences. Enough to warrant it a glance. Personally In my opinion I think the game looks rather interesting and this is pretty much the first video I have watched for it. Am I a sony fanboy or whatever people call it? Nope, I just find games that are interesting look-wise and game play wise. Besides isn't it refreshing to have a game that is more fun to play than one that looks pretty 24/7 without much variety in game play wise? Anyway sorry for the intrusion and please give a comparison so as to let others know what you think. Because without doing so your going to get slapped with a lot of disagrees and lose that last bubble ^_^.
So now a score of 80 is considered unworthy of getting excited over? An 80 = GREAT! <-- which is worthy of excitement and a purchase IMHO. What fuels your hatred of a gaming console? Seriously. You are a waste of bandwidth for N4G and judging from you posting habits I would bet a 1000 to 1 odds a multiple account offender. Nobody that carries as much hatred and spews as much venom would have the restraint not to log in every day just to fan the flames. I don't see too many over hyping this game other than members that are your polar opposite. The thing is this is just one more game guys like you (swearing an allegiance to one brand) wont be able to play while multi console owners like myself will. Edit: No tantrum here. I am just keeping it real. People like you are a cancer to sites like this. You contribute nothing but negativity.
Nuri - fair enough. Opinions are like butt holes, everyone has one and they mostly stink. So just take my take on this game as just that. But that aside, I really don't see the appeal to this game, there is no excitement to this game, there's lots of repetition like "Too Human", the graphics engine is not a selling feature and it looks like the gameplay is very simple. Not to say this will not appeal or be fun to gamers, just that it won't appeal or be fun to many. Hey, if it looks good to you, go and purchase it. I for one don't find this game either appealing or fun. Maybe the demo might change my mind, although I don't have much hope for that. Edit: boodybandit - There is an ignore feature, please use it and not waste our time with your tantrum.
you got it all worng VX, people disagree with you because you talk absolute crap. scoring 80 on metacritic isn't a bad thing, did you know crackdown got 83? PS3 is getting loads of games this year, not all of them have to be AAA for GAMERS to enjoy them.
Then why, Agent_VX, are you investing so much energy into it? You must be some really bitter and depressed person if you spend all your free time searching the Internet for all the things you don't like and then commenting on them. Next stop Barbie? What a strange life you have! I enjoyed the clip.
How can you say it won't convince you to buy a PS3 and then say the demo might change your mind? You're clearly not interested in the PS3, I'd stick to articles focused on whatever platform it is you are interested in if I were you. That way you might be able to make more than 2 comments in any 1 article.
Anyone who has played a sucker punch game knows the gameplay is awesome. Agent V doesn't know his A** from his mouth.
Agent VX is a 360 fanboy, so you'll see comments like this on PS3 articles. You can see hes posting history.
Damn! Who turns this thread into a personal vendetta ? With two bubbles. GTFO. Last time I will comment to you. You just became invisible. Thx.
No one's disagreeing with you because "thiz iz teh ps3 fanboiez site111!111!" We're disagreeing with you because you're flat-out wrong.
Lets say the following is true: Infamous isn't New, and the graphics aren't amazing. Whats better? That will be released in 2009? Dur dur dur.... HaloOSD? Infamous isn't interesting to me in the least. But the weak arguments are pathetic coming from people who we all know dont own ps3s and have some bubble deathwish, and have absolutely no games to play or comment on. Even 360 fanboy sites are covering PS3 games. How long can you guys go down with the titanic? till it hits the sea floor? You've got nothign to play, you've got no news, you've got nothing to look forward to. You've got no reason to be on a gaming website outside of trying to hate on PS3 titles. When AgentVX sees a ps3 game, he gets his PR report ready. And it always reads: "Well this isn't new or fascinating, yet i find all multiplatform "exclusive" 360 games phenomenal and innovative, still not buying a ps3." You can call out a game for whatever reasons, but those same reasons better not apply to every single 360 release ever created, and dont even start to talk about graphics. Infamous makes Prototype look like dig dug, yet im sure if I go in your comment history, i wont see u trying to bash prototype. You love to pretend that youhave to have innovation to buy a PS3 title, but im sure you're the same person buying COD4, COD5, COD6, Gears2, and EA spinoff #9. But waiit when it comes to the ps3, it has to jump through hoops that no games do. I hope that pricedrop comes soon, so you guys can actually start enjoying next-gen gaming instead of trying to make yourselves feel better by convincing the rest of us you're blind and that the unreal engine looks better than Kz2.
lol this game looks like a rip off of Iron Man. Floats from palms and feet? Check. Shoots fiery stuff from palms? Check. barely acceptable presentation and graphics? Check. Crummy super hero? Check.(Iron man is not a bad super hero though) this game looks like it has a lame open world design too, kinda like Spiderman 3: The game. I mean really this game seriously looks like a licensed movie-game tie-in. I know you guys are getting all uber excited because its a PS3 exclusive and everything, but just open your minds for a few seconds once in your lives and try to notice that the game doesnt look all that great. All im saying is dont get too excited. And from what ive seen from the moral system, it will not be able to stand up to the standards set by Mass Effect, or even Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2 five years ago. This game looks average, that is all. Dont waste your $60 on this PS3 dudes, get something else like Uncharted 2 or something, that game looks great.
You guys are right. Skating on wires, electric bombs and armoured machine gun buses, how generic; Those things are in, like every game. Sorry, graphically Infamous just blew away every open world game and if you watch the PSN vids, he blows up 20 cars with people running everywhere with not even a hiccup in the framerate. Something GTA4 could never manage. Back on topic: I love the way his powers and appearance change when he's evil. It's like the difference between a jedi and a sith.
1:the graphics is better than prototype! 2:the story is still not so clear how is it but so far it looks it have much more story than prototype. 3: the gameplay looks more like sneaking on roof tops and attack ur enemies while they didnt expect u, something like spider man but that doesnt mean its a bad thing, true it reminds me of spider man atmosphere but it looks much better, and please dont compare it to iron man, i dont know why u americans r into stupid and unreal hero's stuff!! only u like it that much!!! 4: this game looks worth the purchase if u r into slow paste games combined with some real good action!! 5: its like sly-racoon but with more action and mature story line!! 6: now its all depend on what is the story is about, what kind of things u can do in there. i think the game have the potential to be AAA but i think it will be 8.5 on metacritics!! which is a great game!! oh by the way the graphics is solid in inFamous!
Damn, that was da truth (don't pardon the pun). You can say whatever you want, but this game is not generic at all. The closest games to this are Crackdown and Prototype. Thats three games that are similar to each other. That is not generic at all, it's actually quite the opposite.
I am really looking forward to it. Especially since it is from Sucker Punch studio. Sly Cooper games were awesome.
has never failed me. i getting this game to support their new IP. they could have easily made another sly game (not a bad thing) but this gen desperatly needs new game types like this. firts day pick up for me
Yeah i think eventually they will make new Sly, at least some PSN version like quest for booty was....to see how big interest is in franchise. If you pay attention there is actually a lot of "Sly Cooper" in Infamous. The way he jumps around and holds on stuff.
Please, don't jinx it by saying so and so developers never let me down. Dare I say "Free Radical".
*knocks on wood*
The XP system and the Karma system alone will keep this game replayable for me. Anyone know if Prototype has a system like that?
and that's why i'm more pumped about inFamous. it seems more focused than Prototype, which really does just look like Spider-Man: WOS crossed with Hulks: Ultimate Destruction. with that said, i'll be getting both, but i'm buying inFamous day one, minute one.
disagree all you want, but i used to work at Vivendi, and i saw Prototype everyday, and it really is a mix between Ultimate Destruction and Web of Shadows. the Karma system in inFamous already makes it infinitely deeper than anything Prototype has showcased so far. for a game that's releasing in June, we sure don't know much about Prototype's gameplay, story, or world. all we've seen is a flashy video showing off his abilities. i'm not saying the game is going to be a bomb, but judging from what i've seen of the game in person, in trailers, and from what very little i know about it only a few months from it's intended release, i have to say that Prototype is still a mystery, and not a very intriguing one from the looks of things. how many times must we see the "i'm a genetic experiment who's lost his memory and is looking for answers" storyline?
Holy moly, this is looking reeeeaaaally good to me. I love the fact that his appearence changes with the whole karma dealie...
It looks like the hero can do so much. If they don't make the game too easy, this can lead to some very fun complexity in gameplay. That's why I'm picking up this game day 1. 12
I agree. I usually stay to the good side when playing these types of games, but the red lightning is just too cool. I'm def gonna be evil for the first playthrough.
this looks boring in comparisons to prototype destruction. meh
personally prototype destruction looks boring...this looks like it will have just the right balance to the point where its fun and you want to keep playing...prototype looks mindless which can be fun dont get me wrong but it can get boring real quick
It does look boring but I wouldn't compare it to Prototype though because that one looks cheap. I guess the one thing that keeps me interested in this game is that he's supposed to be a comic book hero so I'm still
r u sure u r ready to give ur hard earn money for this.. well me??? helllllllll nooo ... anyone else? ... i dont think sooo but u sir go ahead... peace
well the destruction is only one minor part of the game. An open world action game needs a story. Oh and the XP, karma, and the different types of powers looks outstanding in this game.
It looks cheap and last gen. The graphics and physics(or lack thereof) look sad and reminds me of Spiderman3 and I don't like remembering that $70, it keeps me up at night! I saw a video that actually made Prototype look fun, but I'll wait for the reviews to make my final judgement.
Definatly picking this one up.
looks ok, nothing outstanding
The outstanding thing about Infamous is it's Karma and XP System, and this trailer doesn't show those features, but i have high hopes for Sucker Punch's new game
I downloaded all the gameplay trailers and I just can't see how this game is going to be more enjoyable than Crackdown.
if you've noticed they are playing with cole when he's evil, thats why his skin looks the way it does and his electric attacks are red instead of the heroic blue. The karma system is always in effect. the player here chose to be an outlaw and has now got the use of evil cole's powers. I'll take an story based open world game over some mindless destruction sanbox game. It can be fun but it'll get repetitive. Thankfully i have the option to choose between both prototype and infamous so i wont rule out what both games have to offer. ^^
the more i see of this game the more i want it, really annoying :( will deffinitely pick this up :)
This game is going to be an AAAAA title for the PSe, it has everything, great combat, platforming, moral decisions, good story... and they changed the thing (although stupid) that was annoying me: the blue electricity... it was getting a bit repetitive but now with that red/orange bolts it looks even more awesome :OOO
actually the colour of the electricity is reflective of your status: blue = hero/good, red = infamous/evil but yeah this game is looking more awesome the more i see it :D
awesonme, this is gonna rock =D
ill get anything on PS3 thats not a fps.
but every video shows the same powers, i wonder how the powering up system works wow this look better http://www.joystiq.com/2009...
that might look fun for a 13 year old. It's mindless destruction for some people who want a little bit more content.
Infamous videos are all about throwing electric bolts and a ok story. I dont know about prototype storyline, but the variety of gameplay action is awesome. Everybody here seem to have a lot of faith on Sucker Punch, i dont know them and i dont think much of this game. Time will tell
Go to IGN to find out how inFAMOUS's powers work, most powers won't be shown simply because the videos are early in the game thus no real development put into the powers. Understand?
"the videos are early in the game thus no real development put into the powers. " What? Great to see so many airheads enjoying a game they have not eve touch. Should not we wait to play it and then say is awesome or otherwise Understand?
As I said mate, go look at IGN to find out how the powers work. The powers in this game are used with a developmental system, in which the more you do damage, or good, the more options you get to develop and change your powers, thus me saying that the videos are early in the game(Which 90% of them have been) so the powers aren't developed enough to show a variety, which you were saying the gameplay seemed to lack. Understand? Did you see me say the game was awesome? I know I didn't write it.
i enjoy getting disagrees when posting something not positive against Infamous or Killzone 2. It means i'm not a delusional sony boy like many are in here (although i do prefer the PS3). Infamous will have to prove itself to be great. not just some videos and good comments
Or do all 360 fanboys find any PS3 exclusive to be meh and always generic. I would like to do a Pepsi taste challenge where you see what they think before they know which system it's on. 360 fanboy:"That games great!" Taste challenger person:"It's a PS3 exclusive" 360 fanboy: Now that I think about it, it's kind of generic and I don't like the (insert any gameplay mechanic here)" Their sole measurement for how good a game is is the system it's on.
I take it that by going off topic you understood?
I hate this guy's voice for some reason, just feels so generic and monotone.
but then again I will get used to it and wont mind it while I'm playing. Its obvious this game is near completion. They have some polishing to do though. The game looks beautiful, animation and particle effects especially wow. But with all that stuff happening on screen, framerate took a hit.
That was the youtube, not the game. Check out the vids on PS store. There are no framerate problems.
So THAT's where my extra july dollars are going this summer. Awesome!! I need to go check out this karma and xp system you all are talking about. I haven't heard anything about it.
I'm impressed with the storyline...I just hope the gameplay is as deep as it looks...I'm definitely picking this one up...
PROTOTYPE IS CRAP COMPARED TO THIS
wow, calm down. why do you feel the need to put down Prototype? WHY?
I'm picking both up. Packed summer people. Infamous, Prototype, and Blaze Blu. Got to find the time to play all three.
But really they are entirely different games, apples to oranges my friend.
That looks bad @ss! I love the gliding through the air and that electric ground pound move. Looks really fun.
Sony didn't catch MS with there pants down , they caught them with there d!ck in their hands. Sony went all out for games and new IP's where MS only concentrated on DLC. Sony ftw.
InFAMOUS - $60 purchase Prototype - Free rental from Blockbuster
lmao amen to that
PS3 owner - inFAMOUS and Prototype. XBOX 360 owner - Only Prototype. :)
I like having the option to play both, but my mind is made up. Infamous get my money.
Heavy Rain and War Devil.. i guess 360 fans have to jump back out and get a ps3..
