Second Son has it's own flash sale at $39.59 right now. Not too bad for people that want to go digital.

Its really not worth going digital on this game, you finish in under 20 hours and there isn't much of a reason to do more than 2 or maybe 3 playthroughs - game doesn't change much and its pretty easy at even the hardest setting.  It is definitely a decent game, but not really the kind you are going to say 2 years from now "man, its time to go replay some infamous SS!"

 

I wish they put out a GOTY disc edition though with SS and the DLC on one disc, i'd buy that in stores and then trade it in when I'm done.

I'm a huge fan of the first two inFamous games, but even I have to agree with you on Second Son.  The game was clearly rushed to launch, not so much in terms of technical issues, but content.  Way shorter than the first two.

Anyone able to offer a review for First Light? I'm looking for a short but fun game . I've played a bit of Second Son, but not all of it.

I liked it, but the first two games were far superior. I beat the game twice, got the platinum and that was it, there was obviously nothing else to do. I'd say it's worth $30 or less, but like I said, you'll want to sell it as there's not much to do once it's over.

It's an entertaining enough game but I think my price point would have to be $20-25 max due to lack of extra content. 

 

I mean you can waste time hunting all the drug busts and graffiti art if you wanted.

More replayability in First Light because it has the arena score attack mode.  I loved Second Son, but it's more of a play once kind of game.

It's a good game. It's not a great game. I platinumed it in around 12-13 hours.

Thanks, but I wiill definitely wait for the $20.00 mark on this one. Just havent heard very good things about this one. Everyone I know that has played it says its definitely the weakest Infamous title to date.

It's a really good game, but the story was blah. A real technical marvel as well, the best looking game I've played.

This game will be one of the first PS4 games to hit the $20 mark.

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

Really? I thought the graphics were just okay. Killzone looked better but it played like watching paint dry. RYSE looks a lot better as well. Heck, I'll go so far to say Tomb Raider, Battlefield 4, NBA 2K14, TLoU Remastered and even Destiny look a lot better.

Price isn't that good and Cole's Legacy is still not for sale on the PSN. :wall:


Cole's Legacy was such a total disappointment. If you go in with any sort of expectations you will be burned. I bought the Limited Edition just for that DLC and it definitely wasn't worth it.

Selling it in my trade thread here on cag.

 

As far as the deal, I'm still waiting to re-buy a physical copy near the $20 mark around Nov-Dec

i would get your eyes checked.  

 

TR is an up-rez and it showed.  NBA2K14 looks good, but c'mon.  BF4, LMAO.  TLOU:R and Destiny sure.  

 

Say what you will about the game, but I:SS was one of the first games where my wife stopped and watched, and was like "wow, this game looks different" (till that point, she basically saw the ps4 as equivalent to the ps3)

I liked the game, but everytime you'd get a new power and it showed him doing his O face thingy, the screen would go near black. It did that on the Vita I had as well as my 55" Bravia. I didn't think the graphics were bad at all, but nowhere NEAR the best. And yeah, I guess it was better than BF4.

This game will be one of the first PS4 games to hit the $20 mark.

Probably, but price rarely reflects game value, it's more often a result of pricing strategy from the publisher and how well it can monetize at a bargin price.

It's a meh game. Another accidental B-movie. The franchise just lives in the shadow of Uncharted forever. Wasn't even worth a second playthrough for me.

The only console games out now that are on the same level graphically as SS are KZ & Ryse. Looking at the rest of your suggestions I also agree that you shoud get your eyes checked.

Was going to jump on this since the only game I have on my ps4 is metal gear and I've been wanting to get this and/or watchdogs but everyone keeps saying how bad they both are. Guess my ps4 will still be used watching movies.

SS isn't a bad game by any means; it's just much shorter than the first two. If ~12-20 hours of gameplay for two playthroughs is worth $40 to you, go for it.
