Playing through the first Infamous is more fun that I thought from my demo impressions. Might be a little repetitive with the substations, but still a lot of fun. I'll probably get the second one too.
I also still have to pick up Mass Effect 2, but I'll probably wait till the end of the summer

I'm a big Parkour fan, especially when it's used in video games, and as far as I can tell, but basing this on the demo only, Infamous kicks the shit out of Mirrors Edge. That being said, I did get Mirror's Edge with my new PS3, so I'll have to try the game proper at some point to really be sure.

The simple fact is that Infamous is incredibly gratifying and I'm glad a game like it exists.

If you get it at the end of summer, prepare yourself for not wanting to play any of the new games coming out during the fall.

This is good to hear. I'll have to check it out during these holidays, and play as jerkass Cole.

Damn, now I wish the Infamous games starred Cole Train.

Or Cole Phelps.

I was about to say, Mirror's Edge is a flawed game, but quite possibly one of my favorites this generation, and it's a challenging, rewarding, and aesthetically unique experience that I'd definitely suggest you try out. Infamous is kind of middling, simplistic shit in comparison, IMO. The latter is still enjoyable enough though, but I'm not quite sold on it being all that good a game.

The thing that bothers me about Infamous is the enemy design. They just look like a mess of polygons. And then, even putting graphical limitations aside, they still seem kinda generic

Steam is having daily summer vacay sales. I picked up the original Knights of the Old Republic and for some reason fucking Railworks Train Simulator for 11.50 for both

Gotta love buying all these Steam games I will never have the time to appreciate.

, I was thinking that Laz would've said something to this effect when I made the post.

Well, after reading this, I'll very likely pick up Mirror's Edge. I can't imagine it being too expensive at this point.

I definitely agree that I am not impressed with the enemies. I only just started to figure out what the Reapers even looked like and then I got to the Dust Men and I can't even begin to guess where their heads are, so trying to precision shoot them is a bitch.

I thought this was all to blame on the fact that I have a 22" TV, glad to know I'm not the only one with trouble.

The game did come out a number of years ago. Despite that, I still think it has far better graphics for an open world game than most. It's night and day better than LA Noire's world graphics. You get cooler looking enemies the further you get in.

Regardless, 2 is soooo much better looking in all regards.

I picked up Infamous right after trading in L.A. Noire (I couldn't justify keeping it since the replay value was close to nil) and there's no way that the former has better open world graphics. Infamous 2 though? that shit's gorgeous.
