Today, one of Sony’s most anticipated titles of the year releases. InFamous 2. I enjoyed the first title myself, and with the upgraded visuals and new features and powers available in this one, you can’t really go wrong with it. Anyone picking this one up? Given my current situation, my best bet for now would be renting it from GameFly, though.
Anyway, be sure to see what Kevin Butler, the VP of Heroic Actions, has to say about the game in the newly released InFamous 2 ad.
With Infamous 2 arriving soon and money being tight, you might want to consider trading in some old titles to get what is sure to be a Triple A title. Gamestop is currently running a deal, where when you trade in 2 select games, you will get $40 towards inFamous 2. Seeing as the $40 is trade-in-value, there is no tax, meaning you own Infamous 2 for $20 cash. Take a look at the list below.
Sucker Punch has mentioned that you will be able to import your Infamous save file into Infamous 2 and it appears they kept their promise. When you fire up Infamous 2 you will have an option to import your Infamous Trophy data. I, like many others, have earned the platinum and have wondered what, exactly, we would get. Here is the list:
♦ Have good or evil Trophies from Infamous: Start Infamous 2 at level 1 good karma or level 1 evil karma.
♦ Infamous Trophy for 25 percent of the Blast Shards: Free energy core in Infamous 2.
♦ Infamous Trophy for 50 percent of the Blast Shards: Two free energy cores.
♦ Finished Infamous with any karma standing on any difficulty: 1,000 bonus XP for Infamous 2.
♦ Specific Trophies for Specific Infamous decisions: Reflect side missions, Dead Drops and dialog variety in Infamous 2.
A new trailer has been released by Sucker Punch entitled, “The Beast”. With the game nearing its release, Sucker Punch has began releasing info on what keeps the story moving forward. This is what Nate Fox, the director, had to say:
[spoiler intro="Contains some spoilers"]
What’s the Beast, you ask? Like a meteor from outer space it’s a force of destruction too powerful for humanity to contain. At the end of inFamous, Cole MacGrath was given a vision that the Beast would arrive into the world and that he alone could stop it. The safety of our species was put on his shoulders. No pressure right? As you might imagine Cole would do anything in his power to get ready for the fight. He’s desperate to win, to save the lives of his friends and neighbors.
But at the start of inFamous 2 he fails. The Beast arrives and Cole isn’t strong enough. He’s forced to run south to New Marais and prepare for a second, final encounter while his home, Empire City, is swallowed in flames.
Have you ever failed at anything? Ever been dumped or fired or beat up? Ever tried your hardest and still lost? It’s sucks, right? Makes you feel hollowed out, weak. Like you don’t matter. Of course it’s exactly those moments that forge you into in a stronger person. I believe that we are defined by our failure more than our successes. Once you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and OVERCOME the thing that beat you, that’s when you really win. That’s when you’ve surpassed your past self. In inFAMOUS 2 you, help Cole get there. You guide him through New Marais; searching for new, stronger powers. Along the way you’ll meet potential allies who could help in your fight against the Beast. And you’ll need the help… the monster is moving down the coast, burning the landscape, getting stronger as it centers in on New Marais. Your back is against the wall, with only a few days to prepare for that second chance. Soon it’ll be time to overcome the things that have beaten you in the past. Are you up for it? After all, the Beast is Coming.
