If you guessed that this week’s most played game would be inFAMOUS Second Son, you can give yourself a gold star. A number of other games got some play time too though, including Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Destiny of Souls, Final Fantasy X HD and King Oddball.
There has only been one game for me this week, and that has been inFAMOUS Second Son. I completed the story, playing as a Hero, on normal mode for my first playthrough. I then spent a while clearing the DUP out of every sector, picking up all the available collectibles, working through the bonus Cole’s Legacy content and gathered as many of the trophies I could muster without a second play. I have to tell you, the Space Needle is not the way to go if you want the 170m high comet drop trophy – it just isn’t tall enough!
I’m now in the first few minutes of my ‘Expert’ playthrough where I’ll be making all the morally corrupt decisions to reach the height of infamy – I’m looking forward to hearing the public react to me as I walk the streets this time around. It can get a bit boring having your photo taken and everyone yelling ‘you’re the boss’ and ‘I’m free tonight; here’s my number’.
I’ve been sick for a good portion of this past week so I’ve been cooped up in bed. Thankfully I’ve had my Vita by my side the whole time, however. I’ve continued freeing the world, square by square, in Destiny of Souls. I think I’ve found a good set of spirits to use for each elemental type so I’m now at the point of just leveling them up by feeding them the souls of other spirits. It’s actually kinda dark, now that I think about it.
I also downloaded Mercenary Kings on the PS4 and have been playing that a bit thanks to Remote Play on the Vita. It’s a fun little Metal Slug type game with a lot of collecting and customization. Hopefully this week I’ll be feeling better and be able to get back into inFAMOUS: Second Son.
I finished inFAMOUS Second Son, which is the best inFAMOUS game so far in my opinion. I look forward to playing my evil playthrough soon! The third power (avoiding saying what, due to spoilers) was by far my favourite power.
I also started Persona 4 Golden again, so I’m playing it through for the third time – I’ll have to platinum it eventually! I spent a lot of time on Danganronpa too (completed it in two days, over roughly 25 hours, because I’m apparently mental) and I found it to be gripping and likeable. As someone who finds Virtue’s Last Reward quite boring, Danganronpa really surprised me.
I’ve been carrying on with my Final Fantasy X HD playthrough, and it’s still one of the greatest JRPG’s I’ve ever played. Square Enix has clearly taken a lot of care with it, and I look forward to playing X-2, too! Also, Blitzball <3. Skullgirls Encore was loaded up again too, and it’s still beautiful. I can easily recommend it to anybody looking for a solid fighter, especially if you want a 2D or animated one.
I’ve also been playing Dynasty Warriors 8 on Vita, and it’s packed with content. I’ve been mashing my way to victory, while hoping that if they ever release a One Piece Pirate Warriors game on Vita in EU, it’ll play (mostly) this smoothly.
With the new Final Fantasy XIV beta on PS4 downloading, I’ll be spending a lot of time on that for months to come. The first beta had me glued and I already own the full game on PS3, so I can upgrade for free.
This week I focused almost exclusively on inFAMOUS Second Son; like Dolph, I’ve completed my Good playthrough 100%, and have just started my Evil playthrough. Having sunk around 20 hours into the game now, it could well be my favourite title on PS4 so far, which to be honest I wasn’t really expecting. I also finally got around to playing the free Paper Trail add-on, which as Matt said last week, is surprisingly awesome.
I’ve also been ever-so-slightly addicted to King Oddball, a fun alternative to Angry Birds (which I’ve personally never really got on with). Buying the game on Vita will get you both the Vita and PS4 versions for well under £2, which is a complete steal, so I thoroughly recommend it to puzzle fans.
