Would rather it had been a new IP, but this is the next best thing.

#3 Posted by SlashDance (1864 posts) -

At least it's not Cole, but yeah I would've liked to see these guys try something different.

#4 Edited by ImmortalSaiyan (4748 posts) -

I liked iNfamous. From the looks of the trailer now there is fire power. Which is fine by me.

Out of all the games shown, I think this would have to be the one I'm most interested in, and I only got about halfway through the first game and didn't play the others.

I wonder if co-op will be implemented? If so, I found the next best thing to a next-gen Crackdown.

I still don't understand, what does, 'Second Son,' mean? Second, Son. How many sons did he have? Is that a clone?

But furreals though. Cole had sexy-time with the black girl!! .. Or the white one.. . Right?.

I gotta say, that guy introducing the game with his paranoid "fight the man" shtick was uncomfortable to listen too.

#8 Posted by hidys (1063 posts) -

That dude gave a kind of awesome introduction but outside of that I must say I'm looking forward to it.

I'm honestly surprised that we're getting a third Infamous on the PS4 given that Sony seems to cycle out IP with each new console (and when they do bring them back, do nothing to promote them, ala Sly Cooper).

#10 Posted by sub_o (951 posts) -

Can't decide based on the trailer. Hope that they will release a gameplay trailer in the near future.

I'm just okay with inFamous series, not a big fan of it.

#11 Posted by cloudymusic (1444 posts) -

I don't particularly care about the game, but man, that presenter was the highlight of the show.

#12 Posted by Phatmac (5923 posts) -

Another infamous game is always a good thing.

#13 Posted by Pr1mus (4107 posts) -

The dude from Sucker Punch scared me.

#14 Edited by FunkasaurasRex (855 posts) -

I'm glad that they aren't going with Cole or the same old powers again. My hope is that they take the core concepts of inFamous and take it some new directions (you know, evolve the series). But yeah, I loved inFamous 1 and 2 so I'm stoked.

I'm surprised that their doing another Infamous game. I really liked the second but I figured they'd end it there and work on a new I.P. I'm still excited to see how this turns out though.

Having loved the first two, more inFamous sounds great. If they make the game more urban and use the PS4 to make the crowd AI smart this could be quite a fun game.

Plus its a safer bet than a new IP to launch a new console with.

@blu3v3nom07: First Son may refer to the first group of people who caused all the problems in the first two games. Second Sons is probably them regrouping and starting their power program again.

#20 Posted by Oldirtybearon (5328 posts) -

What do I think?

Troy Baker continues to get work.

#21 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4215 posts) -

@dvsshark: Oh... That explains so much. I played part 1 a long time ago. I gave it to my friend and told him I never wanted to see it again. (Ihad already got the platinum.) ~ And Part 2, I liked a lot and I still have it I guess. I don't remember anything about 'Sons in Part 2, though.. ~ But, Kay!

#22 Posted by AngelN7 (3000 posts) -

Troy Baker: The videogame finally! ... it looks pretty cool actually I already like this new protagonist and I gotta say an InFamous game is pretty damn cool launch title for the PS4

#23 Edited by gogosox82 (441 posts) -

Looked pretty good. I really liked the infamous games but i thought they were done with it the way infamous ended. But it looks like there gonna evolve the series a little and go in another direction which is fine by me. Who doesn't like fire powers anyways?

#24 Posted by Lydian_Sel (2520 posts) -

I am absolutely on board to play more InFamous! Hopefully they'll do something interesting with the fiction.

'Troy Baker: The Videogame' seems like something I would happily play.

#27 Edited by martinallan (37 posts) -

The guy who introduced the game sounded like the type of paranoid who wears tinfoil hats, I loved the way he was trying to stick it to "the man" when the company he works for develops games for a major corporation.

The trailer had nice fire effects though ha

Follow the money!!

#28 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7097 posts) -

I'm excited. I just hope his powers are more interesting than just fire-based stuff.

I am really excited. I am a huge fan of the inFamous games.

#31 Posted by punkxblaze (3018 posts) -

"I was pepper sprayed in college..." Forlorn look to the side, dramatic lighting; "Okay here's a video game."

Man that introduction was uncomfortable, heavy handed, and out of left field as fuck. Oh, yeah, I guess the game looks ok too.

#32 Posted by cloudnineboya (964 posts) -

if i could lick it i would. throw in some cool destructible physics and boom the perfect infamous game

#33 Posted by SmilingPig (1370 posts) -

I don't like the infamous franchise, I find it too 'Redbullish' if there is such a thing.

#34 Posted by D_Bones (421 posts) -

@mariachimacabre: Agreed. Obviously just a first look but they seemed very similar in appearance to Cole's moves. Even the fire tornado reminded me of cole's huge power move.

I think... looked like (and will probably be) a prettier version of InFamous with fire power analogs to Cole's electricity ones. And Troy Baker.

#40 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7097 posts) -

See...smoke powers I could totally get behind. Seems like there are definitely fire elements but smoke powers is something I think could make for some super interesting gameplay. Whatever, I'm down for more InFamous either way.

#41 Posted by BlatantNinja23 (928 posts) -

infamous is actually the only sony ip that I like, so I'm happy to see there going to be a new one.

#42 Posted by Tidel (372 posts) -

I'm excited. Loved the first two.

Although the intense introduction, ostensibly focusing on how we're always being monitored, on a console that takes invasion of privacy to new and exciting heights, made me feel a bit sad for all of us.

They've officially referred to his powers as "smoke powers" I believe. Which is good, because it gives you a lot more opportunities for cooler abilities, whereas fire would mostly be a reskin of electricity, I think.

#44 Posted by martinallan (37 posts) -

Smoke powers?! Back on board!

Looking forward to all the details at E3

#45 Edited by StarvingGamer (9280 posts) -

I wonder how they're going to handle inFAMOUS 2 in regards to choices. I'm assuming the good ending is canon but who knows.

#46 Edited by BabyChooChoo (5487 posts) -

Loved inFamous 1. Hated the shit out the story in inFamous 2, but thought the game was good. As of right now I'm excited for numero tres. I have no reason not to be.

#47 Edited by MaFoLu (1871 posts) -

Smoke powers, eh? Devil fruit powers galore!

#48 Posted by Tennmuerti (8519 posts) -
  • neat trailer, wish they would have shown some of the actual game
  • dude in the conference doing the intro was way way too intense for the dumb fun that is infamous and it's nonsense storyline
  • i like the new dudes face/voice

Fucking A! Absolutely adore both of the prior inFAMOUS games; inFAMOUS 2 in particular was my #2 for my 2011 GOTY list. Smoke powers sound pretty cool, too. I could imagine that they'll be able to import Cole's vampiric flight ability from Festival of Blood pretty easily with such a power.
