Spoilers follow for the ending of Infamous 2.
I knew I wasn't going to get any real details about Infamous: Second Son out of Sucker Punch's Nate Fox. But I've been a big fan of the open-world PS3 exclusives, especially because their take on superhero action makes great use of the tight thematic bond that a superhero has with his city.
Sucker Punch made a very interesting, very good choice in choosing to set their follow up to inFamous in a fictional recreation of post-disaster New Orleans. The first game had a lot going for it—I've always thought it was underrated—but, its setting was not one of them. Our own Evan Narcisse has described inFamous as…
I'm in the middle of playing the new Infamous: Festival of Blood DLC, which gives series hero Cole McGrath all sorts of new powers by virtue of his getting in turned into a vampire. I talked a bit about the Shadow Swarm flying ability in my hands-on preview and when I was demoing the game, I mentioned that it…
One of the things that's always a challenge in superhero games is giving the character new powers as they go. Infamous 2 got to bypass Cole McGrath's origin story, and as a result introduced new powers while presenting a faster-moving, more enjoyable story than the first game.
The two big releases this week on the PlayStation store are Infamous 2's bloodsucking "standalone add-on" Festival of Blood and the highly-anticipated-by-Stephen-Totilo Pixeljunk Sidescroller.
Once a game comes out, some game developers may go to tropical locations or re-acquaint themselves with families who they barely get to see during crunch time. Sucker Punch did something a little different during their summer vacation: They turned Cole McGrath-the electrically-powered hero of the development studio's…
Remember that PlayStation Move controller you bought last year? Well, they're still making games for it! Resistance 3, for example, is fully playable with PlayStation Move and that just came out.
The new $299.99 pricing for the PS3's 320GB configuration has already been spotted at Amazon. You can get the console bundled with inFamous 2 for $299.99, free shipping. NewEgg also is listing the bundle. [Dealzon]
Later this year, Infamous 2 fans will be able to download Infamous 2: Festival of Blood, a standalone adventure for Sucker Punch's open-world superhero PS3 game.
Sony Computer Entertainment has acquired Sucker Punch, the studio behind titles like Infamous and Sly Cooper, the Tokyo-based game giant revealed today.
We featured the art of Bjorn Hurri (Total War, Steampunk Star Wars) only a few weeks ago here on Kotaku, but since then he's been given the all clear to release a ton of content from his most recent project, inFamous 2.
The trend this year in video games, only about a decade late, is to let players repel an attack on New York City. See Crysis 2 this spring, Modern Warfare 3 this fall, and other games that put a virtual gun in their player's hands and some fantastic evil in their sights. The enemy isn't explicitly Al Qaeda, rather…

Two weeks after its release, Infamous 2 is already available as a full download over PlayStation Network, in what seems like a big ol' middle-fanger to retail.
I suck at being the bad guy in video games. I always get all invested, and then I'm hardly ever able to commit to being evil. But for some reason, Infamous 2 has become that game that's made it so much fun for me to be bad–-and I have those annoying guys that drum on pails to thank.
In this week's episode of Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes' excellent podcast Jay and Silent Bob Get Old, the dynamic duo spends several minutes hawking Infamous 2. Did you know the game will "suck yo dick?"
Towards the end of inFamous, Cole MacGrath is given a vision of The Beast, an all-powerful world destroyer that only he has the power to stop. At the beginning of Infamous 2, he fails.
