Sucker Punch Productions has been making the rounds leading up to inFamous: Second Son's release a week from today, and speaking to GameSpot, co-founder Chris Zimmerman talked about the bizarre origins of the game that kicked off the open-word action series.

"The original idea for Infamous, believe it or not, was that it was kind of Animal Crossing, but you were a super hero," said Zimmerman. This work went on for around a year and the pitch called for players to fight a gang of purple gorillas whose only crime was stealing balloons.

Zimmerman described this early inFamous as being "So much more stylized, much more cartoony than what you end up seeing. We worked hard to see if we could make that work." Ultimately, the team decided to pivot once it was determined the project "really wasn't coming together."

Which of these looks most like Mii?

There are a lot of weird quirks brought about by existence. One of them is that we all exist in varying relationship to other people, particularly larger than life figures. But larger than life figures aren't even exempt. As ...more

Forget zombies, bears are the best part of H1Z1

H1Z1 is a game about surviving the zombie apocalypse. It should be a game about surviving the bear apocalypse, because they are way fucking scarier than any zombie. But, maybe that hits too close to home since bears migh...more
