See dont say stuff like that :P

I think it will be a great game, but I love the franchise.

Looks very good.....I just hated Infamous 2, so I'm not too hyped for this yet.

#5 Edited by Chozofication (2872 posts) -

Running like the flash with that neon goodness, gonna be great.

One of the few launch window games that truly does look next-gen! Impressive stuff on the graphical side of things from SuckerPunch.

#7 Edited by Boddicker (2732 posts) -

I want to get excited for this franchise.

........I just can't. The superhero genre needs a shot in the arm badly. Will Second Son be it? I highly doubt it.

McShea coming to 6/10 the game...

Looks smexy, really liking the lighting.

#10 Edited by lglz1337 (3752 posts) -

one of those games you need to see it in action

@Boddicker:

I feel the same way. To me, the franchise feels like its missing that "it" factor, and it reminds me a lot of the AC franchise, for that reason.

Second Son will probably be another mediocre game for what has been an underwhelming PS4 library, so far. Nonetheless, the game should at least look pretty good visually.

Looks nice, I just hope the game ends up being more than just "look how fancy our particle effects are" though. Some of the footage of people actually playing the game looks a bit bland, but it might just be a lack of unlocks/powers and their unfamiliarity with the game.

#13 Posted by MlauTheDaft (3760 posts) -

I really want this to be stellar.

Infamous has so far been the perfect GTA for me, since I don't appreciate the actual GTA.

#14 Posted by Riverwolf007 (23753 posts) -

it's going to be a blast and maybe even a reason to finally pick up a ps4.

#15 Edited by Desmonic (14055 posts) -

@bobbetybob: Well for me inFamous was always about the exploration and fighting enemies with your powers in free roam. That's what I always had most fun with, just messing around and feeling like a badass. The story on both games was pretty cool (IMO of course) yet the execution was a bit lacking (versus say the Uncharted series where the story is OK but the execution is brilliant). Story missions could and should be improved. They always feel a little bit to restrained for their own good...

I wouldn't mind the low scoring reviews. God knows we could use some honesty and fair criticism with regard to game reviews, but sometimes it seems like his complaints about parts of games are simply factually incorrect--as if he didn't spend enough time playing the game to know its mechanics.

No, that will be TitanFall.

CoD with robots? I think not.

Showing new powers of the character of an upcoming game people are excited for?

#23 Edited by AppleFan1991 (3074 posts) -

Have to admit. I wasn't super excited for this game. But I kinda enjoyed the first and REALLY enjoyed the 2nd, so my hype meter is climbing for sure

Yup, me too. I predict 6/10, 7 at most on GS. Bookmark this page anyone who wants to claim ownage on me later.

#26 Posted by rosko123 (518 posts) -

Been so amped for this since the original gameplay was shown. Cannot wait!

Me too, I'm quite a fan of the previous inFamous games.

As opposed to Superheroes with My Little Pony tricks.....

All kidding aside I'm looking forward to both...

Me too. Infamous 1 was fun and fresh. Infamous 2 was the same game with a couple of different powers. Hopefully, this game is fresh. Its way too early to tell now, but Insomniac is a B developer in my book, so I would expect an 8 outta this game. Obviously, I'm pulling a score outta my backside.

@lhughey: umm infamous series is developed by sucker punch not insomniac.

#34 Posted by sirk1264 (5554 posts) -

Love infamous and infamous 2. This will be a day one buy for me.

yeah, yeah, yeah. You're right. I'm at work and was too distracted to look it up. But the fact still remains that the series is a B series historically.

#36 Posted by Phazevariance (10969 posts) -

Love teh bullshots with no UI at all. I liked Infamous 1, but I suspect this one won't be any different in gameplay.

#37 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -

Those last gen graphics.

#38 Posted by Sweenix (5399 posts) -

Keep Mcshea Away from this game!!!!!

#39 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38216 posts) -

The colours are real nice but it won't look that crisp and clean by launch.

They keep releasing bullshots, the site linked in the OP resized them. Some of them were 4k shots (posted on GAF) and some shots from a while ago were 6k.

#40 Posted by AznbkdX (3203 posts) -

Not really sure what those neon powers are used for? They look cool though I guess.

#41 Edited by Merex760 (4312 posts) -

This is the game that will make me get a PS4. Can't wait.

#42 Posted by Puckhog04 (22606 posts) -

Looks fantastic. I, like most, am a huge fan of the inFamous series. Can't wait.

#43 Posted by Bruin1986 (1283 posts) -

Graphically and gameplay wise, this game looks awesome.

That said, there is one MAJOR problem I have the game from all the media I've seen.

The psuedo-punk, hipster, smart-ass main character is going to drive me insane in 15 minutes unless they dial down on his dialogue.

Yeah, I get it. They wanted an "edgy" character that people wouldn't label as "bland"...but I fear that this guy is going to drive me nuts.

Same, I haven't liked a single showing of him so far. Even how he looks annoys me lol

I bet you'll see him on a skateboard in the game at some point

too bad Bizarre Creations aren't around anymore to take advantage of the new technology, they were the king of neon last gen

#46 Edited by SuperCowElitist (730 posts) -

Amazing looking! The very first open world game on next gen console to do 1080p & 60fps. A 3 hour linear game like Ryse struggles to do that.

#47 Posted by raging_user (403 posts) -

so again where is the rest of Seatle? or is it just focusing on hipsterville

sucker punch truly fails when it comes to level design

He has completely different powers....

#49 Posted by foxhound_fox (88313 posts) -

Looks like a 2012/2013 PS3/360 game with some fancier lighting effects. Textures are still pretty washed out, depth of field blurs pretty much everything beyond a short distance (a wonderful trick to hide lower res/poly stuff at distance) and a lot of the environment models and effects (light streams and bullet trails) are two dimensional.

I wish people would stop focusing on graphical fidelity, the PS4 and Xbone are going to be very underwhelming to anyone with a decent PC that can run Crysis or newer. inFAMOUS has great gameplay, why not talk about that? We don't have enough games these days with excellent gameplay.

8.0 here quote me on it.
