In today’s modern age of gaming developers will often base their creations on real people. In the past it was jarring to see an “actor” pop up as a video game character, especially if they were were relatively well known. Can you imagine the nightmare of plopping in Super Mario 4 and seeing a CG version of Danny Devito hurling fireballs from his swollen quasi-dwarven finger tips?
It’s almost time for me to dust off my PS3. Infamous 2 drops June 6th and is looking …well... super. While I enjoyed Sucker Punch’s Infamous, I felt as though the narrative was a bit sloppy and the final act was a big let-down. Infamous 2 appears to have ditched some of its “comic-book” roots and now looks a bit more like a grown up Rockstar game only with super heroes instead of cowboys and gangsters. Are you ready to return to the sandbox? New powers, a new city, old friends… this looks to be a good time! Check out this trailer!
