First Light. Ummmn yeah. That's good inFamous.
I had a lot of complaints about Second Son when compared to the first two inFamous titles, most of them focusing on how just getting around the open world as Delsin wasn't nearly as fun as it was as Cole in inFamous and its sequel. First Light is a blast to get around. Fetch still has the light-dash thing, and that makes getting up the sides of buildings a thoughtless process, but it hides its collectibles way out in empty space, demanding you make use of her neon-powered high-jumps, her air dashes, her neon thrusters.
In a lot of ways, it's the platformer I wish Second Son had been. Story is meh so far.
In other news, I'm really enjoying Diablo III so far. I got my Monk up to level 24, and at that point Kayla expressed enough interest in the game that she went out and bought me a second Dualshock 4 for the sake of co-op (and our upcoming anniversary). I rolled a Wizard and she went with Barbarian, and that ancient Diablo formula proves seriously addictive.
I want her to get home just so we can keep smashing our way through some demonic hordes together. And, also, y'know, 'cause I miss her.
