inFAMOUS 2 Shocking Your PlayStation 3 On June 7th, 2011

Normally I would post this news as a sentence or two and be done with it.  Then Steven would create a post making fun of what I posted, and I would comment telling him he’s a loser.  This would go on and on until eventually I would post another article with a sentence or two.  Well I’m already on my fourth sentence so take that!  OK, I’ll write a bit more in-depth, but only because you all asked so kindly.

I could care less about the June 7th release date, but more on the fact that this year is really shaping up to be a wicked one for the PS3 in terms of first party offerings.  We’ve had LittleBigPlanet 2, Killzone 3 is literally right around the corner, and Uncharted 3 will end off the year with a bang.  That’s not including all the other crazy titles coming our way like the ICO/Shadow of the Colossus Collection.  That thing is going to rock…hard!  The rest of the competition has been somewhat quiet thus far, or is it just me?

Specially talking about inFAMOUS 2, I’d like to say that I only really got into the first one sometime last year.  While I played through the original when it was released, I mastered it much later.  It wasn’t the end-all, be-all I was hoping it would be, but it connected with me for one reason or another.  What this boils down to is that I’m very excited to get my hands on the sequel and see just how far Sucker Punch is able to move things forward.  The new powers look great, the graphics look greatly improved and overall it looks like a major upgrade compared to the original.  That’s what I like to hear!

Are you guys looking forward to inFAMOUS 2?  What about all the other big games Sony’s releasing this year?  Is this indeed the year of the PS3?

(EiC’s Note: Don’t forget about the $99 Hero Edition!  It comes with an 8.5″ statue of Cole, a replica of the pack Cole wears, exclusive access to hidden in-game content (including two powers), a comic from DC…and more!)

  1. i enjoyed the first one alot so i’m excited in trying out the sequel hopefully is as good as the first or better and i should be satisfied :) !!! i wish i would like kz but after playing the first one i didn’t really like the controls of the second kz but i shall wait for your reviee to find out more about kz 3 !!!

  2. I have high hopes for Killzone 3 after the control issues with the second part. I too wasn’t a huge fan of the original KZ. Now as for inFamous, I really got into that and I’m hoping this one’s even better!

  3. For Killzone 2’s controls do you guys mean the heavy aiming feel it had or the button mapping???

    As for Infamous, Infamous 1 is the only open world game I’ve played through. Now I can’t wait for Infamous 2 and I think that’s all I need to say :)

  4. I think is was more the heavy aiming cuz i can usually get used to button after a few minutes of playing

  5. I called this years i will be broke, between sony, microsoft and nintendo games, besides the new hardware (3ds and NGP), I am done i accept donations…. T_T, and this without including my another hobby anime, (fullmetal alchemist brotherhood, guin saga,needlees, evangelion 2.0, FLCL, chobits), damn i need 20 jobs at this pace

    That was me guys, I dont know what happened o_O.

    Yeah after people kept bitching about the heavy aim feel, they listened and released a patch with the option to have that smooth arcade feel that Call of Duty has.

  8. @AppetitePat: Well then if the controls have a better feel i might actually test it out then altho i’ll probly be lost in the story seeing as i only played 5 hours of kz2 lol!!!

  9. Killzone doesn’t have much story. Here’s a quick overview:

    -ISA sends ground troops (unable to go by air) to overthrow the dictator Visari.
    -The ISA ground troops encounter the Helghast’s new lightning technology wich kicks their ass badly
    -They work with a scientist to stop the lightning’s source
    -They reach the dictator and kill him instead of taking him prisonner cause he pissed ’em off
