This is certainly harder than I thought it would be. I dunno if I'll get this boss walkthrough completed. >_<

inFAMOUS: Second Son – PS4 (Video Review)

inFAMOUS: Second Son – PS4 (Video Review)

infamous-second-sonPlatform: PlayStation 4

Developer: Sucker Punch Studios

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

Release Date: March 21st, 2014

Genre: Action-Adventure

Nerd Rating: 8.25/10

Leading the next-gen charge was the flagship franchise, inFAMOUS, with inFAMOUS: Second Son in early 2014. It was a fantastic game, and even though it was only on PS4, it became known as the first big next-gen title with its already massive fandom growing with every Xbox convert – including me. Utilizing as much of the resources of the PS4 as they could manage at this time, Second Son demonstrates an extensive map and dynamic gameplay while sticking with the decision-making and open-world RPG aspects that inFAMOUS made famous.

In this video, you can clearly see all of the physical aspects of the game while I comment on its merits in the first official Nerd Bacon Video Review!

  1. Ah, yes, the usual problem of audio sounding different in video than it does in voice over. Here’s a suggestion: Recording ALL of the review on video. This should cause you to have the same tone for everything, plus it opens up options for when to play b-roll.

    Awesome job! Great video, and great review 🙂

      Thanks Sarus! I’ve always wanted to ask – is your name a play off of Sarrus Vakarian from ME? Because he’s one of my favorite characters ever.

       
  3. Great work man! Can’t wait to watch the next one, and maybe start working on video reviews myself!

     
  4. As a first video review, this turned out great! Keep them coming!
