Preview: inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood
by Marc Paris

When I first heard about inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood I was instantly interested in this stand alone addition to the inFAMOUS franchise. Most downloadable content today consist of either map packs and character/weapon skins, or in rare cases, single-player content that almost seemed planned from the outset to tie up lose ends in the story's campaign.

Like most, I hate feeling like I was cheated out of a complete story so that I can be sold DLC later. After getting some hands-on time with Festival of Blood, I can gladly say that this is not a cash-in attempt to complete the retail game. This is the guys at Sucker Punch having fun with the inFAMOUS franchise, providing an interesting twist to the inFAMOUS universe and play style.

Fall PlayStation Move line-up includes inFamous: FoB

It was easy to be skeptical of the PlayStation Move when it first launched, but you have to admit, the peripheral has seen a fair amount of support. Sony has listed the Move-compatible games coming out later this fall, and th...

inFamous 2 gains more UGC improvements in new update photo
inFamous 2 gains more UGC improvements in new update
by Jordan Devore

Sucker Punch Productions has moved to Update 3 for inFamous 2, and with a no-frills name like that, you know they mean business. Obtainable for free right now, this update once again enhances the user-generated-content portion of the game with features the community has undoubtedly been demanding.

The Devourer and Titan boss characters are now placeable in UGC, associating missions with one another to create series is now possible with mission linking, brief reviews can be written and used to ease navigation, and a few other smaller-scale technical tweaks have been made.

Props to Sucker Punch for iterating on this stuff.

New Destructoid Episode: Free Dragon Ages & Battlefields!
by Max Scoville

Hello my little darlings. I've got another one of these awful awful Destructoid Show videos for you:

Uh-Huh-Yeah-Sure News: The PSN store is supposed to be working next week. Okay, moving on.
Graduation Present News: The new Xbox firmware update supports Paypal, and you could get a free 360 if you buy a new computer soon.
Fraudulent News: The first DLC for LA Noire is coming out next month. That was quick.
Conceptual News: The concept art for Battlefield 3's reinvention of Wake Island looks wicked rad.
Obvious News: Dragon Age 3 is a thing that's happening. Also, inFamous 2 is coming out soon because they finished making it.

Also, Bytejacker's Anthony Carboni and I recorded a commentary for xXx. The uh. Vin Diesel movie. This is hopefully part of a new thing we do called Movie Fail. Check out the details here.

Hands-on: inFAMOUS 2 ups the ante
by Dale North

I don't follow sports, but I know there's some kind of most improved award that they give players. From what I've seen so far, the gaming equivalent of this award would have to go to inFAMOUS 2. I thoroughly enjoyed the first game, but it needed some polish and attention. Judging from what I saw at a press event last night, Sucker Punch went above and beyond for inFamous 2.

This is how you do sequels, folks.

Hands-on: User-generated content in inFAMOUS 2 photo
Hands-on: User-generated content in inFAMOUS 2
by Dale North

To me, the original inFAMOUS featured an almost ideal sandbox game world. Running around with such explosive, limitless power made me feel like I could do anything in the game, and that felt pretty great. But now I know that this was only the beginning. Imagine having the tools to create your own missions to play through in this world. Imagine being the hero of your own missions. The new user-generated content ability in inFAMOUS 2 lets you create just about anything you can imagine, and then share it, making this sandbox a whole lot more fun to play in.

At a inFAMOUS 2 media event last night I got to try out a few examples of user-created content. I also made an attempt to put some of my own ideas for a mission together.
