"Effin' Great" comes to mind

I thought this game mildly interesting before. But this is looking better and better and the multiplayer beta for Uncharted 2 helps as well.

I wish they could use epic trailer music like the movie industry uses for movies like Wolverine, Spider-Man, X-Men...etc.
This is suppose to be a comic book like superhero game, so why not add those type of music to make the character and the powers actually seem badass and epic.

If this game supports custom music (which I highly doubt it) I will definitely use my own playlist and use tracks like that.
but who's to say what a comic book should SOUND like? the movie industry has their interpretation (which imo is generally pretty generic, with most comic book movies sounding like every other movie genre out there, comic book or not) and the games industry has their interpretation.

personally i think the music in all the inFAMOUS trailers have worked better then any amount of "typical" orchestral music could have. they fit perfectly. in the same way the heavy rock/metal of DMC3/4 worked pefectly in that game too.

sometimes when you read a comic an orchestra isnt the thing playing in your head...it's just a cool song that fits the scene well. and infamous nails that. sure it had the "standard" sound that every freaking game seems to think it needs...and it sound ok. but in terms of trailers. inFAMOUS has definately done the right thing in focusing on currently exsisting music, and editing the action to flow with it.

i honestly dont think the infamous trailer would get the amount of praise they do on forums if it was just your average, typical, run of the mill "movie-like" trailer that every developer seems to be doing these days.

Orchestras always gives that cinematic feel, and with trailer music with choir it makes it epic. I dont want generic mtv like rock music when it doesnt feel good, unless its racing, fps or sports games. But i hardly care for trailer music for games (unless its actual orchestra used) rather the game itself.

One thing, the reason they use what they use for movie trailers is that it works.

Great videos, evil Cole seems very cool. Kind of reminds me of in KOTOR when you step to the dark side how devil and pale your character starts looking, very nice.

The music for inFAMOUS is very good as well, Amon Tobin, James Dooley and two other composers, very nice.

But yeah the more latest footage i see the more hooked I am. Hopefully demo leaves a good impression .

Pretty cool the way we will look different, playing as a good guy or evil type.

Can't wait for the demo.

IGN site (better than the official one anyways).
Great music tracks in the background, with alot of download goodies and info about the game.

Ps. I can't seem to be able to download any of the wallpapers, if anyone can give me the highest res of the bottom left one, I appreciate it.

Thx Korndog, but how did it work for you? I couldn't make it save. The window showed up and all but when I pressed save it never showed up. Tried with Firefox and Explorer.

The music is so good, has a mix of The Dark Knight style to street urban drum beating. I used a firefox add-on to grav the tracks, but for some reason I couldn't get 2 of the tracks, but whatever.

About the video, I saw it a few hours ago.

It has a bit of a slow start but what game doesn't.
The quality of the video doesn't seem to bring the graphics of the game to justice.

It shows Cole and one of his friends on a rooftop talking a few minutes then they both start hitting the streets and start running around, until one part of city were you have to defend some supplies from the reapers.

The combat looks very good and solid but nothing special yet, but then again it is obviously in the very beginning of the game so you can't expect much.


PS. Absolutely love the comic book style cutscenes with small animations within it, the art is great as well!

Weird.
I tried to save any of the wallpapers and it didn't work.
Some of the comic wallpapers are nice though, too bad they don't have 1080 size of their wallpapers.

OPM UK gives infamous 9/10
PROS / General Quotes :

- The ultimate superpower is given on the last stretch, which, depending how deep you go into the side missions, comes after a good ten or so hours of gameplay.

- The game's not just a looker, it's also structured really smartly, which sounds like a dull thing to be good at, but is actually crucial and brilliant.

- You start off with the basics, such as a simple 'lightning bolt', draining electricity and climbing, REALLY good climbing. (They say later on it sometimes makes Uncharted and Assassin's Creed look dull in terms of the climbing).

- It's good in two ways: It's super-powered, for one thing, so Cole can drop from any height without hurting himself, catch any ledge without finger-tip slipping, and scale just about any building (or giant industrial crane) in the city. And it's also good because it FEELS brilliant, a lovely balance of speed, fluidity and looseness on the one hand, and path-finding challenge on the other.

- It's basically a big win, moreish and addictive wish a 'one more, mission, one more power' appeal that saw me complete the game
twice over a four day weekend full of ruined bedtimes.

- The combat's deep and spectacular, the climbing is slick and intuitive, and the story's got enough depth behind the flashy hero/villain hook to fully merit that all-important second playthrough.

- There's genuinely nothing else like InFamous on Ps3, and it slots in very nicely alongside the machine's other big-name exclusives. People, we have another must-buy

CONS :

-There are occasional frustrations when the game wants to lock you onto the wrong piece of scenery, but it's a muscular and liberating experience that makes Assassin's Creed seem clumsy and Prince of Persia feel like it's running on autopilot.

Overall score: 9/10

Saw it today, very comforting that they gave it a 9, but I don't think thats the only CON they found or listed, unless the game is really THAT good.

That and its OPM which is, official PLAYSTATION magazine.

But I never went for reviews as a decision factor, more as a tool into consideration and more info about the games pros and cons.

But a demo is always the biggest help I can get for a game, and this will have one.

there scans on the net too *cough* gametrailer *cough*.

as for it being OPM, i kind of agree. although generally speaking, official mag scores rarely stand out as being overrated compared to other sites. the only mag that i can think of where the score is way off compared to the competition is EDGE, but they usually UNDER score games. OPM and OXM scores are usually the same as places like ign, gamespot, GT, eurogamer and any other site/magazine.

yeah, same. nice to hear the song from the trailer in full too. someone already ripped it and uploaded it to megaupload. i can play it whenever i want now.

i wish sony would come out and tell us what UK retail stores are getting the beta, or at least tell us who's getting the limited edition version. cos then i can pre-order. as it stands only play.com have the beta, but only shopto.net seem to have the limited edition.

i kinda want both.
