Infamous: Second Son Revealed

Posted on February 20, 2013 by Eric Bastelak

Oh my god Infamous: Second Son was unveiled at the Sony conference today. This was huge. As an enormous fan of the Infamous franchise I have to say I’m pumped. The game looks to parallel our real world with just how stripped of freedom the world is getting in the misguided direction of “National Security”. As a bit of political buff I love this direction; it’s a hard question to put to gamers and I think it’s a wonderful thing to see. Way to go Sucker Punch. You’ve got me hooked I can’t wait to explore this almost too close to reality dystopia.   The trailer features  some wonderful images driving its theme of sacrificed freedom. Then we get a look at the new super powers we will hopefully get to play with before ending on and awesome line of: “You are not in control.” This game is going to be amazing. I’m down Sucker Punch I’m down.Read More

For those of us looking to save a few bucks and still enjoy some current generation gaming the “PlayStation Collection” imitative might a great way to jumpstart a collection.

Posted on July 16, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Electricity and fur collide with the announcement of Jack & Daxter and Cole McGrath as playable characters in PlayStation All-Star Battle Royal. Over the weekend at ComiCon Sony confirmed that the lightening empowered hero from Infamous and Infamous 2 will be shocking his way onto the battlefield along with Jack and his wisecracking fur-ball Daxter (okay no more puns I promise).

Jack & Daxter, like the Ice Climbers in Super Smash Bros, fight in a pair within close proximity of each other. Cole of course prefers to deliver deeply voiced narratives to himself while on the battlefield.

Along with the new character announcements Sony released a two new trailers featuring these 2 characters from the PS3 version of the game. Check them out below:Read More
