Infamous Second Son Review

Its easy for those negative people out there to give this game a bad score but I am an optimist. I fill the good things about this game outshine the bad.


Cole has died and an organization called DUP has risen up to control the bio terrorist threat. Cole supposedly  killed all the conduits on the last game but there was a few that made it out. One of those conduits is Delsin Rowe, a young man who finds out he has sponge powers. This means he can take other peoples powers. At the beginning of the game a DUP truck crashes and three conduits escape all of which you will get to meet(and take their powers)later. This is when Delsin finds out about his abilities by absorbing the smoke power. The leader of the DUP shows up, a women named Augustine. You will grow to hate this women and she is a good villain because you learn that she has her own reasons for doing what she does. It turns out the DUP have concrete powers and Augustine impales Delsin's whole tribe with concrete. The whole tribe will be killed unless you can get concrete powers yourself to save them. Delsin and his brother ,Reggie, follow Augustine into Seattle. Throughout the game you will gain new powers to be powerful enough to stop Augustine. It is up to you whether or not those powers will be used for good or evil.

The story is very simple and easy to follow and it is nothing as drastic as the last games. In a way it feels a little empty because it is not very deep and Sucker punch could have done so much more. The characters you meet have so much potential but they are forgotten and put on the bench for the main plot of the story. Delsin meets Fetch, a girl with neon powers who is not afraid to speak her mind, and Eugene, a shy nerd. These characters have so much potential because their stories are emotional and engaging. There should have been a set of side missions for each character giving them the treatment they deserve and making the game longer. The best character is Reggie who brings a positive aspect to the otherwise empty story. You get to see the relationship between the brothers throughout the game. The character development for Reggie and Delsin is a breathe of fresh air for the story of second son. The progression of the series is also good ,for the events of Second Son is a logical step in the Infamous world. There is a strong sense of authenticity because conduits are facing discrimination just like any group that doesn't belong in the real world. The story is disappointing but Reggie, the believable enemy,and realistic progression for the series makes it stronger.

Seattle is a great location for a free roam game because it has many memorable land marks. Sucker Punch capitalizes and this making it the best setting of the series. The games makes you want to go to Seattle because it is very accurate and depicts a beautiful city. This is possible through the amazing graphics of Second Son. The lighting effects are probably the best of any game right now. This is showcased with Delsin's powers which look spectacular. The side activities are a good diversion to the main story but nothing else. These arrange from: finding hidden cameras, dead drops, DUP in disguise, and blast shards. As wells as spray paint activities. These are all well and good but I want actual side missions. On the last game you actually had to find the blast shards but they are already on the map in Second Son. This provides a walk in the park experience that makes upgrading easy and takes away a sense of exploration. It's to bad that there is not a lot to do in such a great setting.

The best part of Second Son is the gameplay and wow is it great. This game creates a blast of fun through its use of powers and controls. Controls that make the game simple but fun as you are constantly moving in what may be the best combat I have ever seen. Every power is different and unique not to mention really cool. You can switch powers with ease just by finding that element in the environment. It makes for a realistic feel but also an inviting experience because you don't have to pause the game to switch powers. The good and evil choices effect your powers again but not to the extent of the last game. This time around they mainly effect precision and destruction.  For example a good power may slow down time while a bad power makes rate of fire faster. The decisions are about the same as the other Infamous games. Everyone will look at you different but it doesn't really effect the story until the end. When you are bad you will face some hard choices defiantly near the end when you have to choose to kill or let someone live. ( not going to say anything else for the sake of spoilers)

It seems everything bad about Second Son culminates to one thing and that is its length. The main story is great but the side activities are lacking. If Second Son was longer there could be more to do in Seattle, fully developed characters and a deeper story. Infamous Second Son gets a 8.5!

Some side notes:


  • Infamous paper trail is free DLC that evolves gameplay mixed with computer detective work. This is hard to review because it can have a different effect on different people. I like it, but I can see how others could hate it. But free is always nice!  
  • Why didn't Sucker punch finish the last power?( Those of you that have beat the game will understand!) 
  • Photo mode was recently added which provides a great use of the share button. I believe every ps4 and xbox one game should have a option like this. 
  • What I would like to see in the next Infamous game- Multiple side missions that have a story of their own. Cole either from a memory or time travel. A online co-op mode! 
What would you like to see in the next Infamous game or upcoming DLC?

Castlevania LOS 2

Hello, I played some of Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2
Like I said in one post it load during the beginning of the starting scene which I expected. After this there was no loading that interfered with the game.
Century past between the first game and this one. Dracula has been raging war against GOD creations the humans race. After he whips the brotherhood of Light whom attack his castle, Dracula wants to end his life but can't. Alucard offers him a chance to kill the Devil and Death(Zobek)who is hiding from Dracula. And after they go with this plan(I'm not going to tell ) the Devil people do come out. This causes Zobek to look for Dracula and find him in part of his old castle in which a modern city grows up around.
Dracula is very weak from his years of sleep and he has lost most of his powers. Death placed him in a room with a family and Dracula feed on this family in his weak state then woke up in his old but still weak state. Your first mission is to regain your power. Every once in while your return to the old castle. Dracula want to leave it but the castle which we learn from the past game is a living lifeform it get its strength from its master in which is Dracula .The blood  of the castle at certain times take over the many creature whom used to be control by Dracula.Now the castle control them until you defeat them. Both the Castle and Dracula form symbolic relationship.But Dracula can just leave and if he does the castle would die or goto sleep until its next master show up.
Controlling Dracula is very easy. He is extremely agile and fast and this is helpful as you jump and move around while changing weapons between attacks. Some bad guy can only be harmed by using a certain weapon. Bad guys with shields can be done away by using Dracula's Chaos Claws which heats up the shield causing it to break away. Than you can use his blood whip to take care of them. There is also the Voil sword which takes the attacker's life force away while filling yours up. These two weapons must be recharged with power. Your focus  can do this by filling up the gauge when attacking bad guys. Then you can fill up your Voil and Chaos Claws, but when you are hit this gauge goes back down to nothing, so keep moving. One strategy is to go in for a few hits than move away.
There are few things that I didn't like: the parts where you have to sneak around. I get it in the first part because he is still weak, but later on I wish you could knock them out or something like that,like the Agreus section, Pan's brother, are I hope few and far between.You just have to  figure out how to get past Agreus. I found that using Dracula mist is helpful. I just want the game to give us the choice of how to deal with this! Another thing is at times I don't know which way to go. I wish you could make the map bigger.
I also wish you could control Alucard(Trevor the kid) ,Dracula(Gabriel Belmont) real son, but that is another story in which you already know if you play any of the past games.

There is no online game play which is good at least they didn't try to add online game play to a game that it isn't needed.
PS they are coming up with a DLC for you to have Alucard as a playable guy.
Remember Dracula kill his own son and try to save him by giving him some of his blood . Alucard wake up and find out he is a vampire and he fight against the creature that his dad send to kill the human. He find out his dad  is Dracula and that he want to end his life but can't.Remember in the first game GOD give his life back but without his wife.He save the human race and he has to become a vampire to enter in a world where The Forgotten One live.Its want to kill the humans. Gabriel Belmont becomes wash in evil emit by TFO and he renamed himself from Gabriel Belmont to Dracula.

I give this game a 8.0
I know many of the review people give it a low score. But remember one of them was the people who give Duke Nukem a 7.5
I suggest that you rent the game to see if you like it.
Plus if you want nextgen graphic  than get the PC version.
Released for the XBox360 and  PS3 and PC. Out now!

Ubisoft annonacement at the SXSW.!!!

Ubisoft Toronto currently has five unannounced projects in development, studio boss Jade Raymond said this weekend at SXSW.
"There are definitely a lot of plates spinning," Raymond said, as reported by The Star. "None of them have been announced."
That's not a lot to go on, but Raymond also said two of these projects are co-developments with other Ubisoft studios, which tallies with what Raymond said last year.
At the time, Raymond confirmed that one of Ubisoft Toronto's collaborative projects is a new entry in the Assassin's Creed series, while the other is for one of Ubisoft's "biggest" franchises. This project remains a mystery, but it's possible that Ubisoft Toronto is working on the all-but-confirmed Far Cry 4.
PS I knew they would be doing another Assassin Creed game.Because they like to put one out every year! LOL
 In addition to the two collaborative titles, Raymond said last year that two additional projects are new IP, while the fifth is related to the Splinter Cell franchise.
She also said that Ubisoft Toronto had completed work on the multiplayer component for the long-dormant Rainbow Six: Patriots.

Ubisoft Toronto's Current Development Pipeline:
  • New Assassin's Creed
  • Two new IP
  • New Splinter Cell game
  • Mystery game based on one of Ubisoft's "biggest" franchises
Also during her talk at SXSW this weekend, Raymond said she hopes to expand Ubisoft's library to include games built specifically for smartphones and tablets.


"A good game on those devices is different from a good game on consoles, so I definitely believe they deserve their own franchises," Raymond said. She went on to say that games with a strong "social" component will become more prominent in the future.
Ubisoft Toronto's most recent title was last summer's Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

My thoughts on Telltale's The Walking Dead

The first season won many game of the year awards including ours. This is because it had such a good and emotional story as well as something different for a zombie game. Season 2 is just as good as season 1 so far, but it may not win as many awards. I believe this because it simply isn't new anymore. Before I go on I want to say that I love this game. There are just improvements that need to be made. I love this game because of it's story not for the game itself. When playing telltale's The Walking Dead it's just like watching it on AMC. But it's a video game not a TV show! I want there to be some more control options. They could add some more puzzles and exploration to make up for this. In the recent episode there was a point where Clementine has to shoot the zombies coming after her. To do this you have to place the dot on the circle and press the shoot button. I wish you could shoot them all by yourself! This lack of actual gameplay is being seen much more in these first two episodes of season 2. In season one there were more puzzles and even a sneaking section. Why are they getting ride of these sections? They should be expanding on them. Episode 2 had a very good story as your group has to leave their home to run away from a evil governor type of character. This character is actually the father of the baby that one of your group members is about to have. They run onto this big house with electricity where you meet a old friend. Everything is happy until the evil guy attacks. I am retailing the story briefly for much more happens. There are some very intense scenes that have you on the edge of your seat. One thing I have found throughout playing is that choices don't really matter. Don't get me wrong, your choices do change how people look at you and who lives and dies. But it seems like the ultimate outcome is always the same. What if there were totally different stories based on your choices. This makes people replay the game many times. At the end of episode 1 you have to choose who to save. At the beginning of the second episode that choice doesn't matter because the ultimate outcome is the same no matter what you choose. So, for Telltale's The Walking Dead I would like to see more gameplay options and different branches of story that forms off of your choices. This is a really good game series but it feels more like a TV show, but that may be their main goal after all.

What do you think about this game? What would you change, or is the game fine how it is?

Batman Arkham Knight

Rocksteady is back for their last arkham game: Arkham Knight. This will only be for ps4, xbox One, and PC. That means that they can only focus on next gen not having to worry about the past systems. Therefore (we hope) this game will be built to the full power of these new systems. In the game you will be able to drive the bat mobile through Gotham while integrating that with the gameplay. They promised a big map and from the trailer; it looks like scarecrow is back! I am expecting this game to be great since Rocksteady has yet to let me down. Rocksteady has announced that they are making a new Batman villain for the game. His name is the same as the title: Arkham Knight. Here is the first trailer:

TitanFall video clip

video
Adam like the game! Its done by the same people whom done Call of Duty game series. But with 6 people online? Or did I heard it wrong? I do hope they do the game graphic right! The PS 4/XB1 deserve good graphic not PS 3/Xbox360 graphic  on a new game system. They had time to know how to do it right let just hope they do! It look good! Try the Beta if you can! But remember Beta's have bugs and etc,they want you to report any bug before releasing the game.If they(EA) done this with Battlefield the game would had being better!
