Video Games: InFamous First Light vs InFamous Second Son

infamous2

InFamous First Light 

It is not uncommon for a strong or engaging character to branch out from a main title, and navigate out on his or her own.  Several television shows come to mind where a minor character was able to successfully move from a supporting to a starring role, based sometimes on how the actor played the character, the character's charisma, other crowd-pleasing qualities, or sometimes simply because the character is  popular.  This is also happening in the video game world.

If you played or heard of the video game, InFamous Second Son, you may know that the main character or protagonist is Delsin Rowe and the minor character is Abigail Walker, sometimes known as  or referred to as Fetch.  Within a few months of  Sucker Punch's release of the highly acclaimed and eagerly anticipated, InFamous Second Son, the video game Infamous First Light has been released.

InFamous First Light

In the case of InFamous First Light, it could have very well been the dramatic events that happened in Fetch's life as well as her adventurous spirit and nature that warranted her having her very own video game outside of InFamous Second Son. In light of the rise of female video game protaganists, I was excited to learn of this new video game.  Even though InFamous First Light has  a shorter gameplay than InFamous Second Son, the release is considered a complete video game, even though in some circles it is described as Downloadable Content (DLC) or stand-alone DLC.

As a spinout, there are some simiariteis between InFamous First Light and InFamous Second Son; however, there are some differences.  One of the major differences is the make-up of the main characters of each game. It's been said that unlike Delsin Rowe, Fetch has the type of background that propelled her to go on her missions with more of a vengeance than Delsin.  This should translate to more interesting gameplay for the video game player.

Playing Infamous Second Son is not a prerequiste for playing and enjoying InFamous First Light.  This game stands on its own relative to the characters and the storyline. By the way, you do not need to have the InFamous Second Son video game in order to play InFamous First Light.

Sony's Exclusive InFamous First Light is rated T for Teen,  released August 26, 2014 in North America, and is playable on the PlayStation 4.

Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice - New Wonder Woman Costume Revealed

Gal Galdot as Wonder Wonder

I am the first to say that whether it's a movie, video game, or some other visual type media, the characters,   story line and plot are, in my opinion, more important that what the characters are wearing.  However, in the case of some comic book characters, it's difficult to overlook the fact that their costumes have a huge impact on how they are either accepted or rejected by the fans.  For example, would you accept a Batman in an all white costume, complete with a white top hat and cane?  Probably not.  Because of the brooding nature of the Dark Knight, his costume is of course all black -- quite a change from the gray and black costume he wore earlier in some of the Batman comics and television show.  Just as Batman, Superman, Spiderman and others have changed their costumes, it looks like Wonder Woman is following suit in her latest upcoming movie appearances.

Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman

You may have heard that Wonder Woman will be sporting a complete new look when she appears in the upcoming movie, Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice which has a 2015 release time frame.  Unfortunately, Wonder Woman is a supporting character and as of yet, has not had a major motion picture where she is the main character.  Hopefully that will change soon.   Her outfit was finally revealed at Comic Con at San Diego, 2014.  The latest look deviates from the red, white and blue patriotic look of the original Wonder Woman costume to more of a bronze look as shown above.  Wonder Woman's costume has received mixed reviews with some saying that it is similar to Xena Warrior Princess' costume and others saying that the look is a welcome change that  brings her into the 21st century.

With the movie premiering in a few months, it's possible for Wonder Woman to undergo a costume change before the movie release.  She will also probably wear different costumes throughout the movie. Even though the movie is mainly about Batman and Superman, hopefully Woman Wonder will make an impression on the big screen, even if the buzz right now is mostly about her costume.

Rather than concentrating on her costume, hopefully the shift will move to the Wonder Woman character, how she executes her missions and even more importantly,  making her a memorable character in the movie.  In my opinion, it is long past due for Wonder Woman to have her very own major motion picture feature film -- regardless of what she is wearing.

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice has a scheduled release date of 2015.  No word yet on if there will be an accompanying video game featuring Wonder Woman.
