Really curious to see where they take infamous at this point. I liked both the first and the second games, although I think I preferred the first a little more. I have a strange feeling they will just ditch all of the comicbookishness this time around. I was a little bummed when there was less focus on it in infamous 2.

Smoke powers seems like a cool thing though.

I also hope there's more bosses like the first game, less giant monster through the streets bullshit. I love it when you have these cool superhero face-off's against other superpowered people.

I am kind of with Brad on how cool I think it looked... it didn't really look like an infamous game, but I am totally down if they can tie that environment and feel into the comic book feel of the old games. I really like the direction of the new game... the presenter, kind of weird though... he seemed like he should have been wearing a tinfoil hat at the Sony conference...

Of all the games announced this is the one I'm most excited about. I expected to play The Witness at some point but I truly hope this is a launch game, because I'm there. Doesn't even matter if they do much different from the other two games. I actually hope Sucker Punch does a DMC style reboot and just go crazy with the style/mechanics, right now the game looks like a higher res version of Prototype.

Interest is pretty high, especially after it was revealed that the trailer was all gameplay, crazy

Infamous and Infamous 2 were some of the best games on PS3. If they can somehow make it even crazier without the game getting in the way of itself (and its awesome controls) it will be amazing.

They should hire a couple of new sound guys though.. the ambient effects (or the lack of ambient effects) were always weird.

I'm interested to see how it plays. Cole was all about shooting dudes with the electric equivalent of shooter staples (he had the grenade lightning, rocket lightning, sniper lightning, etc.), whereas I don't know about this guy. They said he had smoke powers and it maybe looked like teleporting and the Ghost Rider-esque chains would be more prevalent, but who knows. Anyways, should be cool.

I think it's interesting that for both this and Killzone, they've put in a time skip to kind of reset the stories a bit and make them more accessible to new players. Makes me think that they're both new franchises within franchises, so to speak.

Judging by the trailer anywhoo, it looks like this new protagonist may place a bigger emphasise on melee combat than Cole.

Pretty sure the chain on his wrist has a similar gameplay purpose as Cole's AMP in Infamous 2. Basically, it extends his reach so that melee isn't so annoying to do. After playing infamous 1 again, that short melee reach was unbearable.

Looking forward to the game.

It was a little clumsy in the original, but I think the melee worked fine and was actually pretty fun in inFAMOUS 2.

I'm pretty hyped for this games though it won't feel the same without Cole and Zeke

#63 Edited by Vertrucio (148 posts) -

Oh, I bet Zeke will make an appearance, although they should downplay him just to give other characters a chance to rise. I also wouldn't be surprised if Cole makes some kind of appearance, even if it's just his corpse on ice at a DUP lab where they've been experimenting on it.
