Next gen stuff!

Posted by Boom_goes_the_dynamite

I am totally okay with another inFamous game, in fact a new protagonist seems interesting.

Posted by EnemaEms

Hoping there is Co-Op in this one for the entire campaign.

Posted by ahgunsillyo

Looks and sounds like Troy Baker.

Also, setting it in Seattle is pretty awesome. I'm excited for this.

Nice to see Sucker Punch being given another chance to shine

Posted by WMWA

This actually interest me more than the other two. Only infamous I could get into was the Halloween downloadable one. The shorter length suited how much I dislike the tone and characters of the first two games

Edited by graf1k

The best part of them showing this at the conference was the paranoid, super-serious dude introducing the game. He was...intense.

If Brad sold I'm sold. Time to save some money.

Best opening presentation of the press conference. That conspiracy theorist guy did a good acting job.

Posted by andygazi

I actually was working and watched this live from the street that blew up there and today was the date. Freaky! Seattle hasnt blown up lol

I hope it's more fun than Infamous 2. Based on the way this dude's tearing shit up, seems like it'll at least be different.

Infamous 1 was never boring, but Infamous 2 man, yeesh.

Sam from Supernatural?

Edited by Rejizzle

Yes! Finally an announcement from Sucker Punch. They've made my favorite games of the last two console generations.

Edited by clank543

Cool. I was interested where they would go with this series. Infamous 2 was by no means a great story or dramatic piece, but dammit if that game isn't just fun to run around in. They nailed the movement and basic controls in the first 2, and this one looks to expand on that with a smoke ability.

I wonder how they're going to justify him being able to climb everything in sight, though. With Cole, it was just a throw away line about sewer exploration and parkour.

Posted by Brake

I kinda had my fill with the first two inFamouses, but I can be convinced otherwise as well.

Posted by JeanLuc

Glad its a new Protagonist. Bringing back Cole would feel really lame and kind of insulting based on what happens in the good ending of 2.

Super weird to have the dour conspiracy theory guy introducing this fire wizard power fantasy.

Posted by White

When the guy was giving the opening address, I seriously thought he was going to tear up.

And I seriously thought that I, myself, was going to tear up.

Posted by Lydian_Sel

More InFamous is always welcome! I just hope Sucker Punch has learn't some valuable lessons about making characters who aren't big pieces of shit.

I felt the complete opposite. I actually thought a lot of stuff about the original Infamous was kinda boring and uninteresting, but I Infamous 2 felt like a notable improvement all around. (Not perfect, but definitely better than the first.)

That title reveal is so slick. Second Son popped up I went "hmm?" immediately followed by Infamous, where I went "mhmm!"

The first Infamous, never boring? I'm assuming you didn't go after all of the collectibles, then.

Thank god it's not Cole again, but that means there's no Zeke :(

Can't wait, love Infamous!

Doesn't the good ending of 2 kill off everybody with super powers though, not even the people who are aware they have powers? So shouldn't this new game still be lame and insulting because of that? They could always get around that by having this set before the end of the second game though. And don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on the game at all. I loved the first two, so I'm on board, no matter what excuse they use for a third.

Guess I'm getting a PS4 at some point, love me some Infamous.

The ending for the bad side had everyone with the potential for super powers gaining them.

Yeah, it's pretty cool to see a game set in Seattle made by people who actually live here in Washington. Should be interesting, hopefully it's more than just the hate for "the man" and the Space Needle. It'd be really cool to get to see a place like Pike Place Market. And The Troll has to be in there.

It'd be neat to be able to find your way around the city based on knowing what actual Seattle is like, ahah.

Looks sharp. Really liking this new leap in particle effects. That stuff looks really great.

Posted by Plasticpals

The actual game won't have cinematic camera angles. It will probably be almost indistinguishable from the last game when you see it being played.

Why did that woman walk right up to that big screen? Makes it harder to see...

Doesn't both endings make this sequel kinda hard to make? Cause depending on the ending either everyone with the special genes are dead or all normal humans die due to the disease. I'm very curious how they'll write around this.

I thought Cole survived in both of the endings. The evil one obviously has him survive, but the good ending features a lightning bolt striking and opening Cole's casket. I figured that was blatant sequel bait, and seeing as Cole is featured in PlayStation All-Stars, it would seem weird to suddenly get rid of him.

Also, the subtitle for the new game is "Second Son", a clear reference to the main gang in the first game, the "First Sons", which was established by Kessler for the specific purpose of turning Cole into a more powerful superhero (and a superhero in general I suppose).

I'm assuming that the Second Son refers to the main character being the second attempt at creating a "better Cole". Perhaps this time by making an actual son and not a time-traveling, transmigrated Cole.

I guess that's possible. At the time all we saw was a lightning bolt in the form of a question mark, with could mean a lot of things. It would be lame though for those that liked the good ending, if it turned out that all other super-powered humans died except him.

I'm also kind of scratching my head as to how the ending of inFamous 2 would allow for another inFamous game, and then I remembered that they really wanted a video game version of a comic book and shrugged it off. Besides, I was always going to be down for more inFamous.

Edited by ScruffMoney

This whole presentation was great! From the super serious, out of left field, conspiracy theory dude to the game trailer itself. This trailer made me forget how much I disliked the second half of inFamous 2.

But what if we fought back. And what if we fought back with super powers?"

Edited by MeatSim

I am good with more InFamous since it's got a new protagonist and setting.

Posted by godpinch

doesn't seem to be the popular opinion but another infamous game is enough in its own for me to get a ps4 i loved those games. really dont get the prototype comparison

Posted by facepoppies

I don't know, this protagonist seems way too edgy for a conformist like myself.

Posted by Rodin

Honestly while I was impressed with the while show, this trailer though made me want to buy a ps4. I hope this turns out great.

I think the fact they went with a new protagonist with dramatically different powers will really help. As much as I loved 1 & 2, 2 was a bit stale.

Posted by AgentZigzag

Seeing too many sequels to not that great franchises I have no desire to play... like Infamous. Guess that's just modern high-end games though huh?

Edited by Scrumdidlyumptious

I like Infamous

Posted by Cold_Wolven

Looks really good and I can't wait to see some actual game play to match those visuals.

This is pretty much my only misgiving of what (little) we seen so far. I don't have any attachment with cole per say, I just fucking hate 'edgy' protagonists like this (see DMC)

Posted by PokeIkzai

Consider me hyped. I think a new protagonist is really what the series needed. From that little clip I like the voice over work better than Cole's but I know there's hardly anything to go over at this point.

I have played both and finished the first one, but yeah while I understand some of the design choices given the nature of their respective plots, it really was weirdly empty and sterile for how grimy everything was. And I never really cared about gravelly Cole.

Posted by haggis

I can't help but chuckle a bit at the headline. "Dark and Nasty Future." What game doesn't these days? Every game is a paranoia-infused dystopia. It's getting dull. This ground has been tilled a few thousand times. Can we have something different, please? Devs seem to be caught in a rut.
