      Ya I dont like it. I mean everyone was scared of systems requiring internet and now nobody is complaining about not being able to get all your content without a day one patch. Plenty of games do this and they should just delay it. I mean what about the people who dont have internet? That’s 5 hours of content they should of got.

        If you don’t see the difference in going online to patch a system or game, and needing to be online to do everything… then there’s no arguing with you.

      • LordKaiser

        That’s what the Game of the Year versions are for.

    “Manga and murder, follow the trail of origami doves to discover the full story behind the D.U.P.’s occupation of Seattle.”


    That seems…unrelated to inFamous in every way. o_O

    Is there hidden volumes of manga to find? O_o

    I am confused. o_O

    • bloodiOS

      Reading manga on one hand, murdering people with the other. Good stuffs xD

  • Invisbin

    And here i am patiently waiting for the fourth paper trail mission. WE HAVE TWO MORE DAYS PEOPLE.

  • Skerj

    Does this one lack the user generated content editor of the second game? If so then that’s an unfortunate omission because that’d have easily given the game some legs, especially in the infancy of the system.

      There’s no UGC in this one.

  • Zackasaur

    Now that is how you day-one patch/DLC a game!

  • Bobby Jennings

    Kinda weird to adjust AI behavior and all before we even see how it was unajusted.

    I still love this update however.

  • Rikimaru

    Side note, I wanna see Delsin and Fetch hook-up.

  • LordKaiser

    By the Time I get a PS4 the GOTY edition will all DLC will be out.
