Dear Infamous: Second Son, please come out already

I got a PlayStation 4 and I really like it. I've played some fun games on there like Resogun and, uh, well okay that's about it. I mean I've played other games on the console like Assassin's Creed IV, but I'm specifically re...

Paradox Interactive is a publishing machine.
