More games need a Photo Mode like inFamous: Second Son photo
More games need a Photo Mode like inFamous: Second Son
by Steven Hansen

inFamous: Second Son saw an almost benign update with Photo Mode last week (hashtag many filters). With it, you're photografree to turn off the HUD, adjust depth of field, change time of day, and, well, take pictures. Pictures of stunning digital vistas and creepy monster teens. It's like you're a member of the Ansel Adams Family.

It's in some ways an extension of inFamous 2's user-generated missions, which stemmed from Sony going hard on the "Play, Create, Share" campaign after the success of games like LittleBigPlanet. It's also a natural extension of a thing a lot of games already had -- level editors -- now even more useful with the ability to share levels with everyone.

And it's a great idea, equal parts a smart business decision and a fun, artistic tool for letting you make screenshots that second stun

A look at how Infamous: Second Son's 2D cinematics are made

I guess all that spray paint is appropriate for the game's "damn teens!" aesthetic, isn't that right smarmy main character with a jean vest, a beanie, tattoos, hoodie, and flannel? This is the "millennial" that Fox anchors check under the bed for every night.

Day-one patch for inFamous: Second Son adds 19 missions photo
Day-one patch for inFamous: Second Son adds 19 missions
by Jordan Devore

As Chris mentioned in his review of inFamous: Second Son, Sucker Punch is expanding the core game with the Cole's Legacy and Paper Trail story arcs. The first of this content will be playable tomorrow as part of a day-one patch alongside difficulty balancing and technical improvements.

Paper Trail is a free set of 19 missions which are said to extend the game by approximately five hours and tell the "full story behind the [Department of Unified Protection's] occupation of Seattle" both in-game and online. This content was co-developed by alternate-reality game maker 42 Entertainment and also includes "web-based investigations."

As for Cole's Legacy, that's also free -- if you have a Limited Edition copy of Second Son. Sucker Punch says this is spread across four story missions, providing another hour of gameplay.

As much as it can be a pain to have day-one updates prevent you from immediately diving into a game you just cracked open, this will be a welcome sight.

Is Sucker Punch teasing another Sly Cooper game?

So I was strolling through [virtual] Seattle the other day in inFamous: Second Son, and found a conspicuous looking piece of street art. Yep, it's none other than Sly Cooper's face, painted on a random alley wall. Of course, ...

Review: inFamous: Second Son
by Chris Carter

I never liked the first inFamous.

I can't quite put my finger on what I disliked most -- perhaps it was the droll art style, the cookie-cutter city sandbox, or the sentient wooden plank that Sucker Punch named "Cole Macgrath." Thankfully, the New Orleans-like setting of the sequel spiced things up a bit, and the decision to go with an even sillier vampiric setup made Festival of Blood more enjoyable.

inFamous: Second Son takes everything that the series has done right, puts it in a blender, and delivers what is easily the strongest entry yet.

I've got to say, I'm looking forward to Infamous: Second Son. Now, this might surprise you if you follow my infuriatingly titled posts. Up until last week I didn't have any interest in Second Son. Sure, it looked neat, but who cares? It looks like I do.

Last week Phil and I got to play through a fairly sizable chunk of the game with Sucker-punch co-founder Chris Zimmerman. Oh my god the game is a ton of fun. Fortunately for all of you lovely kiddos the show was recorded so you get to see Phil and I take play through the game with both good karma and bad karma. It's surprising how much actually changes depending on your alignment.
