Infamous- PS3

Post by WildWillyWilson » Tue May 12, 2009 6:22 pm

Anyone got it pre-ordered or picking it up at launch?

Think I'm going to get it, read a bit about it and it seems interesting. Cracking game according to IGN as well:

Reminds me of the Alan Partridge quote "I don't want to be infamous I want to be ...fumus".

Played the demo yesterday. Fun but it doesn't quite live up to it's lofty premise. It's kinda Force Unleashed meets Grand Theft Auto in execution. I was hoping for a bit more freedom to exercise my will (which is the whole point of the game) but it just seemed a bit on-the-rails.
Astonishing physics though, it has to be said. From a solely technical standpoint it's amazing.

Didnt realise the demo was on PSN, must have hit yesterday? Didnt notice it when I checked. Do you think it feels "on rails" due to it being a demo (ie: restricting parts of the game) or is that just the general impression you get?

By the way does anyone know what the 2.76 update changed? I downloaded it last night but didnt look much on the net for what changes have been made...

It's not out on PSN but available to the lucky few who preordered it or have received a code from Sony. But yeah, this game does look great! Some reason the graphic style reminds me a little of Crackdown, dunno why as it's not even cel shaded.

This game looks simply fantastic, I can't wait to get stuck right in :D

The demo is released to the masses next week anyway, so you could PM the code to someone who has time and is desperate to try it. And by someone I mean me ;)

I can't wait for this, Crackdown is one of my fave games this gen and if this even comes close to being as good I'll be happy.

Just thought I'd say that if anyone else has a spare code laying about doing nothing I'd LOVE to try this game out. :D
