Videogame Review: Infamous 2 PS3

A large part of me simply wants to write “I love this game, end of review.”  But that would be wrong.  No I don’t know why it would be wrong but I’m sure someone somewhere wrote that reviews one sentence long are bad.  After all I’m sure you’ve come to hear good and bad stuff that might be labeled criticism either to reaffirm your desire to play this game or confirm your desire to leave this franchise alone.  First off, make sure you’ve played the original Infamous.  There’s a savegame import and a few of the decisions carry over.  Next ask yourself, did you like the first Infamous?  See the second game plays a whole lot like the first but better.  Think Assassin’s Creed 2 to Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.  Or Fallout 3 to Fallout New Vegas.  Infamous 2 is an incredibly fun superhero city romp without the tights and a story that might bite you back.

News: Video Game Releases

We know so there’s so much E3 going on right now its easy to forget but there are new games out that you can play right now!

Infamous 2 – PS3

Developed by Sucker Punch and published by Sony.  If you only buy one game this week, buy this one.  And if you don’t own a PS3, then buy it anyway.  Yes that’s right.  Sucker Punch deserves your money more than you do.


Shadows of the Damned – 360, PS3

Developed by Grasshopper and published by EA.  Grasshopper is best known for Killer 7 and No More Heroes.  If there is one thing Grasshopper can guarantee, its that you’ll never play another game quite like theirs.  Don’t believe me?  Watch the trailer.


Red Faction Armageddon – 360, PC, PS3

Developed by Volition and published by THQ.  This game has already been roasted in the reviews but with such popularity on the prequel among Gamers with Good Taste, its hard not to bet on the sequel.
