  • Release Date : 21/03/2014 (North America & EMEAA)
  • Publisher : Sony Computer Entertainment
  • Platform : PlayStation 4 (PS4)
  • Game Type : Open World
  • Performance : 1080P (30FPS)
  • Currently Tracking ahead of "The Last Of Us" In Pre orders
  • InFamous: Second Son's day one title update will introduce a series of new episodic story missions that amount to around 5 hours worth of additional gameplay, Sucker Punch has revealed.

infamous Second Son is set seven years after the good ending of Infamous 2, in which Cole MacGrath activated the Ray Field Inhibitor (RFI) to destroy a Conduit (superhumans named for their ability to "channel" powers) named John White, also known as the Beast and cure the Plague. The explosion that resulted was originally thought to have killed all Conduits across the globe; however, those outside of the blast radius or with a natural resistance have survived. Fearing the Conduits' abilities after the destruction of Empire City, the US eastern seaboard and the worldwide economy, the Department of Unified Protection (DUP) is formed. Now, major cities across the United States are heavily monitored for Conduit activity, whom the DUP have labeled collectively as "bio-terrorists".

The game is set in Seattle, Washington, now under DUP jurisdiction. Players control Delsin Rowe, a 24 year-old slacker graffiti artist, who wants to help the community by protesting against the government, which he hates. Because his brother, Reggie, is a police officer, he does not have a good connection with his family, seeing as his brother has arrested him numerous times. After trying to help in a bus crash, Delsin comes across a conduit who attacks him. Delsin wakes up with strong healing powers and later finds out he can use these powers offensively. Reggie accepts Delsin for being a conduit and helps him to protest against the government. Delsin then finds out that he can defeat other conduits and absorb their power for his own use. These powers include, ice, smoke, nature, fire, neon and amongst other. The developers have said these powers are "the tip of the iceberg".

9 outta 10. Why ya'll hating like this?

#3 Edited by Sweenix (5395 posts) -

to eliminate the troll and alt votes, i have decided to remove the poll and make a new thread entirely.!

Everyone who voted in the prevous thread, needn't vote again. As i have counted their votes.

@blue_hazy_basic Can you please the lock other thread, or even better, combine it with this one.

Lastly, i am sorry for the inconvenience, i should have known hand counting the votes would have been much more reliable and real.

Infamous' 8 >>>>> Titanfall's 7.

I'll re-post my message from that AA Infamous winning poll thread.

----

Based on Gamespot history, the first thing I thought of is a good solid 8.

Personal HYPE? A good solid 8.

AA. I can see InFamous 3 getting a 7, or A, score due to Gamespot.com's new ways of reviewing.

The games are fun, but they don't blow my mind. Infamous 2 got a 7.5 at Gamespot.com. Sequelitis, the first game was a nice change of pace and a new IP, but the second one didn't wow Gamespot. I can't imagine what the third Infamous game, the developer Sucker Punch can alter/add that would change the way GS reviews another Infamous Sequel. It will be a pretty game, but I'm not sure that Sucker Punch can amp up the wow factor to impress GS...

At least so early in the generation. They make fun games though, so I'll check Infamous 2 out sometime.

lol in your dreams scrub. TF will outscore it. Oh, and lol at you for being a typical cowardly cow only hyping 2nd Son 8.0. Everyone can sense the fear in you.

#18 Posted by Kjranu (774 posts) -

This game will be GREAT, a definite 9 if the story is as awesome as most Sony exclusives. 8 if story is run of the mill.

#19 Posted by Shewgenja (7951 posts) -

Like a bawss!

#20 Edited by blue_hazy_basic (27233 posts) -

@Sweenix: Nice! I know its work but I think its worth it (oh look all of a sudden no AAAA and only 1 less than A votes as if by magic! :P ). This way we get a much more genuine hype for a game.

#21 Edited by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

@Rage010101: herm continuing to beg for them console games. :)

I voted 7, buuuuddddyyyyy.

#22 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (24316 posts) -

wait you made a new thread in fears that this game could flop very badly?

That's funny. 7/10 this game will still be.

#23 Posted by Sushiglutton (5173 posts) -

Hmm tricky it's either an 8 or a 7. I guess it will score a 7 all things considered.

#24 Posted by blue_hazy_basic (27233 posts) -

forgive my ignorance, but who is that?

Nothing wrong with AA hype for this. I'd say that's about right. Its much more likely to score a 7 than a 9 here IMO.

#26 Posted by kuu2 (6820 posts) -

A solid 7 for a truly stale game.

He made a new thread so you can see who voted for what, rather than the anonymity a poll grants and allows people with alts to vote many times.

yet his hat and facial expression suggests he's been out on a daytrip with the special bus

That was uncalled for.

#36 Edited by PrincessGomez92 (3245 posts) -

8.0.

This game was almost voted as an AAA

Now it's going to be close between AA or A :p

#39 Edited by speedfreak48t5p (6232 posts) -

10. Another Sony masterpiece.

@GamingGod999:

I deleted it, you are right, it was not needed. sorry for any offence caused

#41 Edited by Sweenix (5395 posts) -

IGN will be having a live inFAMOUS Second Son Preview!

It's schedule to start in slightly over 2 hours

This preview is likely to contain many spoilers, so beware! :)

#42 Posted by Rage010101 (5470 posts) -

@Rage010101: herm continuing to beg for them console games. :)

I voted 7, buuuuddddyyyyy.

So you're basically more cowardly than the already average cowardly cow. Congrats scrub.

#43 Posted by Flubbbs (2837 posts) -

dat AAA

#44 Edited by charizard1605 (54489 posts) -

Gonna go with AAE on this one.

Really nice job with the hype threads, Sweenix :)

#45 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38168 posts) -

Shuhei Yoshida. :) Yes, he is actually a gamer.

He was streaming himself playing Outlast on the PS4 not long ago. Yosp's a cool dude

#46 Edited by Trail_Mix (2021 posts) -

I'd be surprised if this game gets anything higher than a 7.

With the phrases "fun, but repetitive", "visually good, but nothing groundbreaking to the series", "new features fall short" yada yada yada. Basically Infamous 2 reviews.

He makes me wish MS still had J. Allard and Blackley. Those guys knew what was up, too.

@Rage010101: I know gamespot. I know their reviewers. I know their political leanings and ideology...which they allow to leak into their views.

Will score higher on other sites.

Now, back to begging, pc panhandler...and waiting a month to play dark souls 2 after console release.

B-)

I like how you're pre-emptively starting your cow damage control already. Another typical cow fear trait.

Now back to having no games cow, waiting months for a scrap of a game to release on your fail sony box. No godly TitanFall for you.
