  1. Today was a big day for PlayStation as Sony held what they branded as their "second part of E3" today with their Paris Games Week conference. We gathered together the biggest bits of news and announcements at the event and detailed them along with their trailers below. Quick note: We're skipping over any trailers for games that are just about to come out (like in November) and that don't reveal any new details, which essentially just serve as last-minute ads. Following tradition, the show opened with a bang by offering us a first glimpse at one of their next big AAA titles, as we learned that... Sucker Punch's new game was revealed as Ghost of Tsushima Wow. It's safe to say that no one quite saw this coming, especially since most suspected a new Infamous or something similar to it. The PlayStation Blog post announcing it describes it as a "sprawling samurai open-world game." You'll play as a battered Samurai who fights back against the invading Mongol army in feudal Japan. No release date was shown, not even a release year, indicating Ghost of Tsushima may be a 2019 or beyond title. Concrete Genie brings art to life in an urban jungle Gamers might not be as familiar with Pixel Opus (who last created Entwined), but they probably will be after seeing their newest game, Concrete Genie. The trailer shows a boy who discovers a magical brush that brings his art to life on the sides of buildings in an urban environment. He's also being pursued by some bullies, which seems to indicate a thematic story that ties the two topics (art and bullying) together somehow. Live-action 'Erica' is revealed for Playlink A shorter trailer was shown for a new, live-action Playlink title (which combines PS4 with mobile/tablet experience) called Erica. During the game, you'll guide Erica's actions by choosing what to do at certain points in the story, making it more like an interactive movie. Montage of VR games reveals PSVR still very much alive and kicking Here's a list of the games that were shown off in bite-size chunks during the montage: Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown Resident Evil 7: Gold Edition Rec Room Moss Apex Construct Bow to Blood League of War: VR Arena Stifled Sprint Vector Smash Hit Plunder Star Child Transference Ultra Wings Dead Hungry Eden Tomorrow Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV And the segment capped off with a more extended look at a new PSVR game called Blood & Truth, a sort of Bond-like spy thriller. Far Cry 5 is getting expanded co-op A brief tongue-in-cheek trailer was shown of the game teasing the ability to co-op missions with a friend. The update will be coming on February 27, 2018. Activision shares a first look at Destiny 2's first expansion, Curse of Osiris Destiny 2's first expansion is coming, and the trailer reveals that an army of machines from the past and future are coming from Mercury to reshape the world. The only one who can help stop them is a guardian named Osiris, who was exiled to Mercury because of his dangerous ideas. Your overall mission is to find him to help bring an end to the coming invasion, but the trailer teases that his allegiance is ambiguous, leaving you to wonder if he's friend or foe. New Monster Hunter World trailer, play as Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn via DLC, beta coming soon Capcom showed off a new trailer for Monster Hunter World while also revealing that Horizon Zero Dawn DLC will be coming to the game and you'll be able to play as Aloy. A beta is also on the way; PlayStation Plus members will have access to it on December 9. Codemasters' next game is OnRush, coming next Summer Not only is a new Codemasters racing game slated for release next Summer, it's also from ex-Evolution developers (Motorstorm, Drive Club), which is great to see. The trailer doesn't say much, but it looks to be an extreme racing game as opposed to more grounded experiences like Forza or Gran Turismo. New trailer for Insomniac's Spider-Man shown, coming in 2018 Hoo-wee, the latest trailer for the exclusive PS4 Spider-Man game is hot stuff indeed. Styled like a movie trailer, Insomniac's Spider-Man tackles both Peter Parker and Spider-Man's life, weaving a narrative between the two and showing perhaps the most impressive cinematic take on the webbed hero in video games to date. The trailer reveals that the story revolves heavily around the villain Mr. Negative, and also appears to have The Shocker in it as well. Also confirmed is a 2018 release window, so get hyped. Latest trailer for Detroit: Become Human shows Kara in a difficult predicament, coming Spring 2018 It's been a long time coming but Detroit: Become Human finally has a release window: Spring 2018. The latest trailer for the game brings us back to Kara, the android who we were originally introduced to, as it shows her life in servitude to an abusive father and his daughter. It's... pretty heavy stuff, emotionally- and thematically-speaking. God of War is coming in early 2018 This one was fairly surprising to hear. After showing a brief clip of Kratos guiding his son through a dungeon, it was revealed the game would be coming in 2018. Early 2018. Sony appears to be in for one heck of a year. Shadow of the Colossus remake gets another stunning teaser Another teaser was shown for the Shadow of the Colossus remake from Bluepoint Games, culminating in a showdown with the flying serpent colossus in the desert. While not revealed in the new trailer, the game will be releasing on Feb. 6, 2018. Ellie is nowhere to be found in a new, brutal clip from The Last of Us Part II It's difficult to say exactly what the latest teaser from The Last of Us Part II is showing, other than the fact that you're obviously looking at the antagonist, or at least people who will be causing trouble for Ellie during the story. Forwarned, it's a fairly brutal sequence, and the lack of Ellie in it altogether is fairly surprising. Apart from that, no word on release either, which is obviously not that surprising. In any case, this one is still a ways out (2019 at the very earliest). What are your thoughts on what Sony showed? And how crazy is 2018 going to be, right?

    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
  3. 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?

    inFAMOUS: Second Son DLC Lighting Up August

    inFAMOUS: Second Son will be getting its first story-based DLC this August titled inFAMOUS: First Light. First Light allows gamers to play as the neon-powered Fetch who fought alongside Delsin in Second Son. The origin story will follow her struggles in the conduit prison, Curdun Cay, and her attempts to find her brother Brent. Played again by Laura Bailey, Fetch will show off how she uses the neon power differently than Delsin. In an interview with IGN Laura described Fetch's neon techniques as "really fast." The DLC is standalone meaning you don't have to own Second Son to play the new chapter. That said, if you still have your copy you will have access to bonus content in First Light. Stay tuned to Game Podunk for this and other inFAMOUS news. Is Fetch's story one you want to see explored further?
  5. 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!
