This past weekend was my birthday weekend, and I kickstarted things on Friday by stopping work at noon and playing inFamous 2. My goal was to finish the game before I had to do a jewelry party (another job) Friday night, but instead of finishing it then, I completed all of the side missions and found every single blast shard. I really, really wanted that gold trophy as I know I’m not going to get the other gold or the platinum. But after I got home, I started up inFamous 2 and beat it. I was very, very surprised with the good ending.
I won’t spoil it here, but it made me very sad. My husband snatched my strategy guide away from me and read ahead to the evil ending. He then said, and I quote, “You HAVE to do this.”
So, after the credits finished rolling and I was awarded the appropriate trophy, I started a new game and imported over my evil save from the first game. My plan is to burn through this game. I’m doing evil side missions and side missions I know will only take me a few minutes and that’s it. As a result, I’m over halfway through the game already. Despite what my colleague Blake Grundman thinks, I’m having a hard time playing as evil. It’s weird for me to not care for other people’s safety. On the flip side, it’s very easy to get through missions in a hurry, especially boss fights, and certain trophies are also incredibly easy to obtain.
I’m going to make inFamous 2 my gaming over lunch session this week so I can hopefully wrap up the evil ending by the end of the week.
However, now that that is out of the way, it’s time to focus on my next big strategy guide review: Dungeon Siege III. It’s going to be weird to play an RPG after playing a high-action shooter game, but I’m looking forward to it all the same.
