An incredible one million copies of Infamous: Second Son have been sold in a mere nine days according
to Sony Computer Entertainment Australia. This number makes this installment of Infamous the quickest-selling one yet. PlayStation4 sales in the UK skyrocketed
106% during the launch compared to the week before. Infamous: Second Son will also be receiving its first update soon,
which will contain a few requested features, so definitely check it out.

I got into the first game a bit, and sort of faded away from it half way through. What are your opinions on the series?

Our Verdict

Mariah Beem
I am very fond of video games, which is why I chose my major of Video Game Design with focus on Narrative. The idea of being able to make people feel the way I do about games through my own game is my main goal. I want to be able to give gamers a way to connect and be brought together by an experience that could be powered by elation, sadness, or even fear. It is emotions such as those that hook people into games and make them want more. By connecting a well-thought story with mechanics, character design, level design, and even audio, a game can be unstoppable - and ridiculously fun to play. I believe that narrative design is not a static thing. For narrative to be done well, it must be fluid and dynamic - something that is able to be changed by the player. Whether that be by choices, the knowledge the player gains from exploring, or simply who the player talks to, the story must bend and change and grow. This is why I want to be a narrative designer: there is definitely more to it than meets the eye, and I love a challenge.
