inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood Preview (Destructoid)

Marc Paris writes: When I first heard about inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood I was instantly interested in this stand alone addition to the inFAMOUS franchise. Most downloadable content today consist of either map packs and character/weapon skins, or in rare cases, single-player content that almost seemed planned from the outset to tie up lose ends in the story's campaign.

Like most, I hate feeling like I was cheated out of a complete story so that I can be sold DLC later. After getting some hands-on time with Festival of Blood, I can gladly say that this is not a cash-in attempt to complete the retail game. This is the guys at Sucker Punch having fun with the inFAMOUS franchise, providing an interesting twist to the inFAMOUS universe and play style.

"since it's unclear if the events playing out in Festival of Blood have actually happened or if they are really Zeke embellishing aspects of the story "

I hope it's non cannon or it ends up that Zeke is in fact making things up to impress the ladies if it ends up being cannon.

I just don't really see Vampires, the super natural being a part of the inFAMOUS universe...

Mutated monsters and super hero abilities which are caused by science in some way....fair enough but with the super natural being the kind of opposite of science I just don't think it fits into this universe if it ends up being cannon.

If it's fun and plays well, I'm fine with it. It's like those old "What if" comics from years ago. What if Superman crashed in Gotham and was found by the Waynes, What if Spidey never got the symbiote suit off...it's fun. Nothing wrong with that.

White lightning, you're over-thinking a bit too much here. This is a game,they're just having fun like R* did with RDR and sega with yakuza of the end. I don't see anything wrong with this at all.

WhiteLightning2925d ago

Where did you get the impression I have something wrong with the game, I'm just saying if it's non cannon and it's included in the main story then it will look at bit odd and out of place. The thing with RDR Undead Nightmare is that Rockstar came out and said that it obviously wasn't cannon to the main story. I even aknolwedge this at the end of my comment

" I just don't think it fits into this universe if it ends up being cannon."

"if it ends up being cannon."

Wow people really just jump to conclusions and think someone is bashing a game when there not. I'm just sayining...if it was, that's all <sheesh>

MrSpace2925d ago (Edited 2925d ago )

I hope it's not canon etheir. The thing is Sucker Punch havent came out and said anything yet so it's kind of worrying, vampires don't belong in inFAMOUS.

I'm fine if it's non canon, fair enough but if it isn't it would make me enjoy it less knowing that all this stuff, including turing into bats (WTF) is possible in the already established story. As I said it's fine if it's non canon

EDIT: Really...

"This provides a fun twist to the narrative since it's unclear if the events playing out in Festival of Blood have actually happened or if they are really Zeke embellishing aspects of the story to impress this young lady"

"it's unclear if the events playing out in Festival of Blood have actually happened"

"it's unclear"

Seems like there hasn't been any true confirmation yet

theunleashed642925d ago (Edited 2925d ago )

this is not cannon its zeke making up a story to impress a chick at a bar its been stated in all of the previews today.

EDIT: whether it be cannon or not, unclear or not its just a game and the developers are having fun.

DaTruth2924d ago

So you're saying fake stuff is okay, once you can loosely tie it in with science? No wonder so much unproven theory just gets passed off as fact now! Alas, I long for the days when their was an actual "Scientific method"!

GTRrocker2918d ago

That's the point. It isn't meant to really be apart of the universe.

does this need the original infamous 2?

plstcsldgr2925d ago

you dont need any infamous disc just download the game for 10 bucks when it comes out and you can play.

OllieBoy2925d ago

Nope, no disc required.

This is a stand-alone PSN game.
