    Review: Infamous: First Light

    Developer: Sucker Punch Publisher: SCEA Platform: PS4 Release Date: August 26, 2014 ESRB: T for Teen Drugs, dealers, death, and destruction. Infamous: First Light, the first standalone DLC for Infamous: Second Son, is a dark prequel that builds a strong backstory not only for the neon-powered Fetch but the city of Seattle itself. As players learned in Second Son, Abigail "Fetch" Walker, ran away from home at a young age with her brother Brent as her parents were handing her over to the Department of Unified Protection. Infamous: First Light finds Fetch stuck in the conduit prison Curdun Cay relaying the story of her and her brother's struggles two years previous to DUP director Brooke Augustine. During the course of the interrogation, the game bounces back and forth between Fetch reliving her past in Seattle and fighting through Augustine's trials at Curdun Cay. While in Seattle, Fetch and Brent find themselves taking shady work from unsavory people to make money and stay off the grid. When one of the deals goes bad, Fetch is forced to reveal her powers and things get complicated. She continues to complete tasks with murky moral boundaries to rescue her brother, captured during the botched mission at the game's opening. Sucker Punch delivered a moving narrative of how the combination of drug addiction and uncontrollable power engulf Fetch and create the character Delsin meets later in Second Son. The Emerald City of First Light is much different than that of Second Son. These streets are free of DUP checkpoints, cops are fighting the Akuran gangs, and sightings of conduits are non-existent. However, as Fetch begins to reveal her powers, the city evolves. The DUP presence slowly ramps up while the police and Akurans find a common enemy in the conduit who has invaded their city. It quickly becomes clear how a DUP-controlled Seattle came to be and why the city's residents may have accepted it. From a visual standpoint, Seattle is as gorgeous as ever. Second Son's initial section featuring the Space Needle is completely playable with new side missions filling each city district. The PS4 flexes it's muscles once more creating beautiful environments and impressive lighting effects. This is, of course, perfect for an open-world game whose protagonist wields neon light as a weapon. First Light's flashy combat is quick and accurate. The neon power is more than just dazzling to look at when you begin to consider the vessel it resides in. Fetch's struggle with drug addiction melds with her flamboyant power to encapsulate the emotional roller coaster she rides throughout the story. While the combat lacks the diversity Delsin enjoyed in Second Son, it is enough to keep players interested. Skill points unlocked by completing side missions in the game allow techniques to be unlocked and upgraded similar to other entries in the Infamous franchise. Side missions return in the form of lumen gas races, police camera dismantling and laser graffiti quests. While they are a bit meatier than those of Second Son, they are fewer in number. The motion-controlled laser graffiti missions handled particularly clunky compared to the similar spray paint missions of Second Son. All and all, if you didn't enjoy the side missions playing as Delsin, you probably won't enjoy these either. The battle arena of Curdun Cay, First Light's primary feature addition, was masterfully introduced into Fetch's story. Here Augustine pushes Fetch to let her emotional guard down and unleash her full potential as a conduit. Fighting through waves of digital projections presents a challenge and makes up for the lack of major battles in the story. Once the main narrative is completed, the arenas can be replayed in Survival or Rescue modes. As you may have guessed, Survival consists of defeating waves of DUP agents while Rescue involves saving citizens also while fighting off the DUP. Additionally, If the Second Son game save still exists on your PS4, Delsin becomes playable in the arenas. Second Son's photo mode is also present in First Light. A genius marketing move by Sony and Sucker Punch, photo mode perpetuates the socially connected mantra even in this, a single player game. It allows gamers to share jaw-dropping screenshots unique to their experience via Twitter, Facebook or really any social media platform. In fact, all of the screens displayed in this review were taken during my personal playthrough. Infamous: First Light builds a compelling narrative for how the Fetch and Seattle of Infamous: Second Son came to be. The depressing prequel story she tells is moving. As a protagonist, Fetch evokes more emotion than Delsin did, ironically, without the use of forced moral decision-making. While side missions again fall short, the battle arenas add hours of additional gameplay. Sucker Punch once again delivers the high-quality presentation and combat fans have come to expect. Pros: + Fetch has an emotional, dark story to tell + The neon powers are as dazzling as the Emerald City itself + Battle arenas add hours of gameplay + Photo mode is an impressive social tool Cons: - Side missions are improved but not enough Overall Score: 9 (out of 10) Fantastic Infamous: Second Son's first standalone DLC is a winner. Combining the combat and visuals of the full release with a more compelling protagonist makes Infamous: First Light a steal at $14.99. Disclosure: This review was written based on a PSN download purchased by the reviewer
  2. Sucker Punch has announced when Playstation 4 owners will be able to purchase inFAMOUS: First Light. The standalone DLC to inFAMOUS: Second Son will be available August 26 in the United States and August 27 in Europe for $14.99. inFAMOUS: First Light follows neon-wielding Fetch and delves into the events that brought her and Delsin together during Second Son. The story will take place at Curdun Cay, the conduit prison, as well as the city of Seattle. However, it is uncertain as to how much of Seattle will be playable. Gamers will be able to pre-order pre-download the DLC. This means those who pre-order the game can download it before it actually releases and play it immediately upon release. Stay tuned to Game Podunk for more on this and other inFAMOUS news. Source: Sucker Punch Twitter Excited to find out more about what makes Fetch... Fetch?
  3. The March NPD sales numbers for the United States have been released. The Playstation 4 was the best selling console in March despite a push from Titanfall Xbox One bundles. Speaking of Titanfall, it grabbed the top spot on the software sales chart followed by inFAMOUS: Second Son and South Park: Stick of Truth. Below are the top ten selling software in order: Titanfall (XB1, PC) inFAMOUS: Second Son (PS4) South Park: Stick of Truth (360, PS3, PC) Call of Duty: Ghosts (360, PS4, PS3, XB1, NWU, PC) Dark Souls II (PS3, 360) Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (PS4, XB1, PS3, 360) NBA2K14 (360, PS4, PS3, XB1, PC) Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (PS3, PSV) The Lego Movie Videogame (360, PS3, 3DS, NWU, XB1, PS4, PSV) Minecraft (360) The main take away this month is that the game industry is alive and well in the United States. The Playstation 4 and Xbox One continue to outpace their predecessors, even the PS Vita saw a boost thanks to FFX/X2 HD Remaster. Hopefully these trends continue. Source: Joystiq Which of these games did you purchase this month? Worth the price tag?
  4. Owners of inFAMOUS: Second Son for the Playstation 4 will be prompted to download the game's first patch tomorrow, April 17. The patch introduces a number of new options and features in addition to the usual stability fixes Here is a list of what players can look forward to: Stability improvements Ability to lock the frame rate at a constant 30 FPS Option to change the time of day after beating the game Option to remove the HUD The game will now pause if a player's Dualshock 4 runs out of battery A notification in the options menu letting players know if they qualify for the "Unstoppable" trophy awarded for beating the game on expert difficulty Photo Mode Developer Sucker Punch Productions decided to add Photo Mode to the patch after seeing the impressive screenshots players had already taken via the PS4's sharing features. The new mode allows players to pause the game and take screenshots using a number of photo tools previously only available internally at Sucker Punch. They did note that players would not be able to use Photo Mode during cutscenes however. Stay tuned to Game Podunk for the latest on inFAMOUS: Second Son and more! Source: Playstation Blog Will you be taking screenshots in the new Photo Mode tomorrow?

    Sony Shows Off Four Games for PlayStation 4

    Four by four, Sony marched in with their announcements today, discussing four exclusive titles for the PlayStation 4. Killzone Shadow Fall, Driveclub, inFAMOUS Second Son, and The Witness each got floor time at Sony's press event today, dazzling people away from the dearth of Vita titles. Guerilla Games's presentation for Killzone Shadow Fall wasn't there to show off a gripping narrative, but certainly demonstrated what the PlayStation 4 is supposedly capable of doing. The footage showed a giant, foggy city, at pre-rendered cutscene-quality for many other games, that came down with a sudden case of First-Person Shooting. Knife kills claimed the lives of several Helghast-looking people, and an assault rifle that could transition into a sniper rifle claimed the lives of a lot more. In the end, enemy helicopters surrounded the main character, and the demo ended. Shooters, though, are not everyone's thing. Some people just want to race cars and do so in style, which is the goal of Evolution Studio's Driveclub. As is the standard for most 'realistic' racing games, Driveclub took great cares to make pretty the cars. Of course they were shiny, but headlights showed light refracting through the wax in rainbows, and the interior materials supposedly reflect light differently. Time, of course, will tell. Driveclub seems to focus on team-based racing, and takes a first person view from inside the car. If you loved the driving in Far Cry 2... It's been a while since Sony gave fans of inFAMOUS anything to cheer about, so inFAMOUS Second Son apparently intends to rectify that. Taking place within a city under martial law, Second Son seems to center around rebels that are fighting for freedom, with superpowers, of course. Unfortunately, there didn't appear to be any live gameplay, so how pretty the shown footage was shouldn't knock anyone's socks off. The big-ticket games are well and good, but indie games are where the wealth in original ideas come from, so Braid's Jonathan Blow came out to talk about The Witness. The Witness is a PlayStation 4 exclusive, and centers around exploration. Straddling the line between pretentious and visionary (or perhaps favoring one side more than the other), Blow described the open world puzzle game as an open-world game that focuses on cutting out redundant features, centering on concept-pertinent puzzles, and having the theme of epiphanies. It's an attractive enough line-up, but hopefully that doesn't peter off after release. Of course, Sony would never do that. The current date for release is, of course, Holiday 2013 for the console. You can look forward to new details as they arrive, and we'll have 'em right here, nice and warm for you.
  7. Today, Superbot revealed the next character to join the player roster in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale at the GameStop Managers Show in San Antonio, Texas, and that character is: Evil Cole! If you haven't played the Infamous series yet, Evil Cole is...well, Cole led down the evil path, and his appearance changes to reflect that manner. He harnesses both electrokinesis and pyrokinesis powers and has a much more destructive fighting style than the normal Cole. Evil Cole can attack from afar with bursts of fire and electricity, or attack at close range with incendiary strikes, and can utilize familiar attacks such as the Hellfire Rocket, Tripwire Rocket, and Firebird strike. And if you had to guess, yes, his level 3 special is harnessing the power of The Beast to lay waste to everything on the screen, and his Ionic Drain will absorb the other characters' AP, giving him a headstart next time they respawn. Not bad at all! You'll get your chance at playing Evil Cole firsthand when Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale releases on November 20th. Are you excited that Evil Cole has been announced as a playable character on the roster?

    Sony Announces PlayStation Collections

    Last week there were rumors about a new God of War compilation being listed in a retailer's database. On the official PlayStation Blog it was just announced that, yes, there is a new GoW collection coming out. However, what no one knew is that it wasn't the only one they were planning.

The inFAMOUS Collection includes inFAMOUS, inFAMOUS 2, and inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood alongside some additional missions and costumes. The biggest pack of them all though is the God of War Saga Collection.
