Infamous pro tips

By: BatRastered Jul 8, 2011 | 373 Views | 4 Comments

Play on hard without looking like a Jimmy...

I played through the first Infamous recently for two reasons. One, it was free and two I wanted to play through it before picking up Infamous 2. Rei Puerto already did an excellent job reviewing the first game, so I’ll just say that it’s definitely worth picking up at its discounted price (if you didn’t get it for free like I did during the PSN welcome back program).

Anyways, I railed this as a bad guy first then as a good guy on hard mode so here’s some useful knowledge for not looking like a n00b in Infamous:

  1. Not all powers are worth leveling up. Don’t waste your XP on gigawatt blades and thunder drops when you could upgrade your basic lightning shot and grenades. Level 3 lightning bolt as a good guy not only restores your electric energy, but if you connect with a headshot, it will restore your health too. If you are a good shot, you are pretty much invincible with this (which is probably why it costs 12,000 XP so save up). As a bad guy, level 3 electric bolt will instantly cause any headshot to explode the enemy like a bomb (potentially killing his neighbors) this makes you much more lethal than before.
  2. What's the difference? Hero powers give you more survivability and precision, while infamous powers give you more damage potential. It’s your choice.
  3. Go all in. Whether you prefer playing hero or villain, you need to go all the way. You can’t get the best powers unless you’re 100% hero or infamous, so don’t half ass it being nice sometimes and a prick other times will leave your skills lacking.
  4. The story plays out basically the same either way, so don’t hesitate to make your good or evil decision after the first mission, you should already know what you want to do.
  5. Being a hero is slightly easier than a villain. As a good guy, the citizens worship you, at the height of your heroic quest, you’ve inspired them to take up arms against the baddies and clean up their streets. They will throw rocks at the bad guys and otherwise distract them as you take them out. The cops will help you, etc. As an evil bastard, the crowds will throw rocks at you (you won’t take too much damage, unless you’re standing still, but it will throw off your aim and doesn’t help when you’re in a fire fight). The cops will also target you... with guns, so it’s not quite as simple as being a good guy... but you’ve got more personal fire power.
  6. Take a minute between missions to search for blast shards and kill some random enemies around the starting point of your next mission. Not only fun, but you’ll get more juice and XP. If you just go straight into the missions, you’ll probably not get enough XP to upgrade everything (unless you die a lot).
  7. Once you get the static thrusters, spend some time practicing with them... you’ll need that skill in quite a few of the later missions.
  8. When in doubt, climb. Much of the game takes place on the roof tops, and even when it doesn’t having the high ground is always an advantage.
  9. Skip the TV broadcasts that the game keeps drawing your attention to with “point of interest”; they are completely worthless and add nothing to the story. Just ignore them and keep walking. This won't make the game easier or harder, just shorter.
  10. If you try, you can get yourself into some areas that you aren’t supposed to be yet (like the container yard). If there’s no way out, just get any collectibles you can and then kill yourself with grenades. Later, when you’re supposed to be there, you won’t have to waste time looking for the blast shards or dead drops, just fight and get out.

Well that’s it for now Jimmys, I’ll be back with an Infamous 2 review soon, and maybe some more tips for you.

InFAMOUS Review

By: reipuerto Jul 21, 2010 | 243 Views | 5 Comments

Would you be a smug bastard or a sincere human?

What up Jimmies! If you love comicbooks, you’ll love this!

Infamous is a third person shooter from Sucker Punch and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. Sucker punch is also known for their Sly Cooper series. The games starts off with the protagonist Cole MacGrath waking up from the wildest night of his life! Naw, I’m joking, but he’s a carrier of some kind and just so happens to be carrying a deadly bomb that destroys half of the city. He wakes up, somehow, and gets saved by his best friend. The story quickly introduces you to his best friend and girlfriend as well.

Story: The game’s story is told like a comicbook of a super hero. But what makes it so great, are the choices you can decide. The game has a karma level you should watch and all your action have consequence. You help old ladies cross the street, you get good karma. You trip old ladies, you get bad karma. Your best bet with the story is YOUR style of playing. The story can be a hero’s tale with you stopping the bad guys and taking bullets for people, OR can screw so many people they literally start throwing rocks at you and attack you too, and they’re not even the bad guys! But I recommended you play one side and go for it. And the game’s ending is completely different if you play both side(duh)! But, if you play the bad guy, you don’t get a sequel…. Mmmmm…

Gameplay: It’s smooth as butter. You can just about jump, climb, scale, run, roll, shoot, and suck everything in sight. Since it’s a third person shooter, the mechanics are tight. You can feel Cole, your puppet of whatever, moving the way you would want him to. As the story progress you unlock new powers with makes the game even better. From sticky grenade to electric wolverine blades, it keeps coming. The action only intensifies as your powers grow.

A little break! Watch this!

Graphics: It’s honestly pretty good with what you’re getting here. The game doesn’t load, except during open/close of chapters. The city is WELL detailed to the movie theater’s what’s playing. The city’s color pallet also changes based on your choices of play. So if you’re a Hero, the colors are vivid and bright. Else, the city is a dog turd brown, gun metal grey. The character models are sharp and clean and you can believe Cole MacCock is a real man.

Sound: The music in this game is amazing. With the talents of Amon Tobin , James Dooley ,Mel Wesson, and Martin Tillman, you have a superb sound track at your ears. As the action picks up, you want to jump towards the bad guys and rail them.

Overall: It’s a must for you PS3 owners. It’s a FUN game with awesome sounds, fun story that always pushes, and crazy powers at your hands. BUY IT!  
It’s cheap now anyways…^_^
