Infamous: Second Son review: over-powered

Infamous: Second Son review: over-powered

After two (and a half) games, Sucker Punch has the core of Infamous down to a science. Firing off shots, lobbing bombs, and roaming an open city in Infamous: Second Son is as fun as it ever was in the prior two games.

Infamous: Second Son videos show off good and evil powers

Infamous: Second Son videos show off good and evil powers

The Infamous series is primarily about two things: superpowers, and the deep dichotomy of good and evil that resides within all mankind. Being a generally good person will get you more peaceful powers to neutralize opponents, while being a jerk will steer your powers more towards super-powered murder. Two new Infamous: Second Son gameplay videos show off this deep philosophical split. And also superpowers.

MLB 14: The Show and NBA 2K14 bundled on PS3, offers $10 savings

If you like sports, chances are you enjoy more than one of them. That's why we don't say "sport" in singular terms like they do in regions where they only like cricket or "futbol." As a result, there is probably some crossover between fans of basketball and baseball, and Sony and 2K are counting on that for a bundle they've produced that crosses the sporting streams.
