I’m about halfway finished with the full game on my “good” playthrough (thanks Subway!), but I swear I saw no option to import my inFamous 1 trophy data. But man is this game awesome.

Since I really disliked inFamous 1 (played it on both evil and good) and thought that it could have been a good game if they had more time to focus on more stuff. It was just really overrated in my opinion. Not going to get too into it but I did pre-order inFamous 2 but still on edge about getting it. Going to play this demo and see if it is worth my day 1 money.

I know that inFamous 2 should be a lot better than 1 since they had time to learn from the mistakes of the first and make the game they originally wanted to make.

Can’t wait to play the demo, going to be great!

This message is directed with the possibility that Sid is watching over the blog, not directed at the OP. I’m sorry to jump in on this thread with this, but if you read this Sid, can you see why the price for Red Johnson’s Chronicles Episode 1 is listed with a PlayStation Plus price of $9.74, regular price $12.99? It then states the prior offer is still live. This is not accurate information.

The deal is for 50% off for PS Plus members, not 25%. This new discount is a different and WORSE offer than the prior and unavailable offer. I want to purchase this game for the discount that was offered/advertised; I don’t want to be forced to pay more when I already had to wait the six weeks for the store to be fixed to buy it as offered.

See below posts for references to the REAL deal and not the current one being shoveled our way.

Very disappointed that a game about a man with superpowers you remove one of those powers and make it so that only people who order from a specific retailer have access to it.The “preorder incentives” this generation are starting to get tiresome.Preorders were only needed back when video games weren’t as popular and you couldn’t guarantee a store would have enough in stock.Now it seems preorders are being used to remove content and then sell us that content later.

I wish I could play it but I have to get the money to get a new ps3 first since my old one YLOD on me and I can’t find anyone around to fix it and it cost way to much to have Sony to fix it

i called my gamestop i pre-ordered it at and they said they might have a midnight sale..so there is still hope we can get the same time walmart customers get it

Ok, I’m really enjoying the demo but I’m getting an even bigger laugh out of some of the mock titles for the ‘adult film’ marquees. So far I’ve found:

Call of Booty
Uncharted Love
Little Big Unit
Epic Hickey
Latch It and Skank
Sly!
Hush
Assassin’s Need (Love Too)
Hey, Low Reach
No Need For Speed

Any one else find these as well, or maybe some others not listed? Lol

I’ve had the Hero Edition pre-ordered/paid for since it was first announced a few months back, at my local gamestop. As far as I know, they’re planning to do midnight releases as well. Luckily for me, if not, there’s a 24-hour walmart in the same shopping center. Maybe I’ll just buy the game twice to ensure I get all the extras. xD

Can’t wait for Monday!

So many gaming related blog posts, an inFamous 2 update, the Store is back up…. I’m about to faint!
Someone catch me!!!

Anyway, i’m so pumped for inFamous2. I haven’t been this excited for a ps3 game since KZ3 (and that game totally rocked my socks off!). I have it all paid off and preordered ready to go. Can’t wait :D

Just tried the demo for a few seconds–heh, heh, I’m supposed to be working. Anyway, may I tell you, Sucker Punch, wow, wow, wow! Instantly reminded me why I loved Infamous & why I pre-ordered long ago. Great job, folks. You were sorely underrated before and I hope you get your just rewards (awards) this time. Another fabulous Sony exclusive (sigh)! The opening 2 D synopsis was beautiful and smart.

As I said before, Verbatim, I’ve been excited about this game since hearing of it’s development, but When I watched the trailers for the games’ Karma System, I noticed it  reinforces negative racial stereotypes, I’m gonna play it, but I have no intention of putting any money in Sucker Punches pockets this time. Rather than buying new I’ll purchase used from Gamestop or Ebay.

Hey Sid and Jeff, thank you for getting back to me on this topic with haste, especially since it’s not relevant to this post. I appreciate the time you guys put into the PSN and the blog for all of us. The publisher/developers’ financial hit from the network outage is more important than my few dollars saved. Now I can be proud to pay 75% instead the 50%. Life’s all about attitude and what we make of it. I hope everyone has a great weekend that takes the time to read this post.

+ leukoplast on June 3rd, 2011 at 3:04 am said:

I am playing the demo right now but I just had to make a post. I have one word for Sucker Punch… WOW!! This game is amazing! Everything about it is supercharged, it’s like Infamous on steroids. You run faster, glide faster, climb faster, recharge powers faster and shoot faster. In a way this feels like a fast-paced Japanese game (Vanquish comes to mind on this one). I like the fast paced nature of it, as it really gets the blood pumping. I also really like the sword, makes melee combat so much more fun and exciting. And the automatic lighting bolt for the Hero Cole… loving it!

I have to say, I am thoroughly impressed, and am really glad I preordered this on Amazon over a month ago. So far there is only a few things I do no like. One is the ‘Automatically starting next mission in X seconds’ thing, not sure if that is simply a demo restriction, but I like to explore and having a timer to start the next mission is annoying and restrictive. Next up for my dislike is that L2 is mapped to the ‘beacon’ when not near a power source, I do not like this. I can get used to it, but I would prefer if the beacon was mapped only to the L3 button.

Continued on next post…

+ leukoplast on June 3rd, 2011 at 3:05 am said:

Continued from previous post…

The improvements overall compared to Infamous are almost night and day, this really feels like a completely new game. I loved Infamous and I didn’t think you guys could make the series much better, but I am really enjoying myself with the demo and every minuet I play I think “June 7th cannot come soon enough!!”.

Well done Sucker Punch, you outdid yourselves yet again with a top notch game that runs smooth and looks beautiful! Now back tot he demo!

Ok, lets see if it posts this. The last things i wanted to say was that I do not like the mission auto-start feature, I like to explore and take my time if I want, having each mission start based on a timer is not good at all (perhaps a demo limitation?).. Second thing is that the beacon is mapped to L2 when no power source is nearby, I do not like this, I would rather it stay on L3 exclusively.

I’ve been playing the Beta and love it! Great work guys! I do have one question though.

Will the abilities be up for download on the Playstation Store when the game releases?
