Just finished this and I gotta say, it was actually surprisingly good. I got it for pretty cheap too (like $20 AU). Honestly one of the first games I've finished and been satisfied with the gameplay, story and ending all at once in a very long time.
I mean it wasn't super special or GOTY tier but it was a good game. There's a few things I'd change but it was still
I thought all the characters were done well. It was pretty decent to put in a native american character but not be all up in your face about it. I didn't even notice really and it actually added to his character for once. Reggie was a total bro, was really
sad to see him die. Kinda wish Eugene was expanded on a little more cause he was cool as fuck and his powers were fucking baller.
Also did Hero playthrough for reference. Not sure if I wanna do a villain playthrough though. Has anyone played both and know if there's a huge difference?
What about you guys? Have you played it? What'd you think? Which side did you play?
It's a solid entry to a consistently good series.
Some were let down because 1 was a solid game and 2 was a step up in pretty much all regards, while SS took one or two steps back, especially in amount of content and variety of locations. But SS is still a solid game in its own right.
I actually preferred the faster and more vertical gameplay and if they could take that and make the next game bigger and have more unique locations like Infamous 2s Flood Town then it'd be fucking amazing.
Villain playthrough is the same story but Delsin reacts to events differently. Essentially Hero is him seeing how conduits are treated and wanting to let them live normal lives, while Villain Delsin is him letting all the anti-conduit propaganda get to him and resenting the general populace because of it. The core story stays the same with some small changes, but Delsins motivations change pretty significantly.
Also, play First Light. Shit's pretty cool.
My only real criticism of the game is that it's too short. You're like 11% done with the game when you first get to Seattle and that's pretty bad. The game itself was good, there just needed to be more of it.
What do you think they are working on now?
Shuhei said he played their new game already.
>satisfied with the gameplay
It might be because it was my first infamous but everything in the gameplay was shitty
piss poor platforming and collisions, boring powers, getting locked on rails if you jumped or falled on something a big higher than the ground, pants on head retarded AI.
Riding the train was fun though
Infamous 1 is actually fairly goddamn difficult. Who'd have thought drug dealers and hobos would be so dangerous to a guy with lightning powers?
Infamous 2 and Second Son gives you a lot more durability before you die.
>Fuck up 2's story by creating an unnecessarily connected sequel
>Lol Hero is canon even though the INFAMOUS ending is better and titular
>The game literally buttfucks Cole's legacy
Sucker Punch got lucky with 2. They are complete morons, and Sony's
bitch. I love Seattle, and I hate the stereotypes associated with the people who live here. I prayed to whatever god you believe in that DELSIN and his buddies would not be a hodgepodge of those stereotypes...
I was dissappointed within the first 10 minutes. Neon Running was cool tho.
I wouldn't be surprised if it's another inFamous.
This does sound interesting. I loved inFamous 1 and 2, and if I buy a PS4 in the future I'll get SS too. I wouldn't mind having 2 inFamous games to buy then.
You also had much less mobility in the beginning of the game compared to 2 and 3, which limited you in evading attacks. You didn't even get the glide move until a little into the second district in Infamous 1, whereas 2 just gave you it and 3 gave you something similar about 15 minutes into the game.
Reggie was the only character I liked.
His death was so fucking obvious I couldn't really bring myself to care, and would have been much more interested and suprised if they DIDN'T kill him off
Villains were lame, protagonist was cool about 15 years ago and the general plot was a mess.
>even though the INFAMOUS ending is better
>wiping out humanity because you don't want to die
And you were infamous because all the bad shit was blamed on you. Hell, The Beast tracking you down and murdering the East Coast is technically your fault.
Do you need to play SS to enjoy First Light? It's only 5 quid off the store right now so tempted to pick it up.
Haven't played an Infamous game since 1, which I remember enjoying quite a lot.
Holy shit, I remember even the regular mooks from the first faction had pinpoint accuracy
>that one condiut who is literally "teleports behind you" the enemy
It was the first thing I played when I bought my PS4 and I loved every part of it. In fact, I loved it so much I got 100% completion in about two weeks, which is a considerable feat for me because I'm not very fond of consoles, I have a job, and at that time, most of my free time (which was aIready very little) went to raiding in WoW.
The only downside is that it's too fucking short.
