For starters, there's our spectacular cover story: inFamous 2. We spent a full day with the fine folks at Sucker Punch, seeing aspects of the game that no one outside of the studio has ever witnessed, and getting a chance to go hands-on with Cole MacGrath in new areas of the New Orleans-inspired setting.
All the electrifying details are revealed inside our lavish 10-page feature, along with world-exclusive screens, juicy new tidbits about the story, and a guided tour of New Marais' first island.
We've also scored a big scoop with the first hands-on with Mass Effect 2 on PS3, including details on how developer BioWare will ease us PlayStation gamers into their epic sci-fi RPG (since the original game wasn't released on PS3). Nifty stuff.
And it wouldn't be a holiday issue if there wasn't a gift guide....

160w ago - Today Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has shared a fresh video trailer and announced that Knights in the Nightmare for PSP is now on sale.
To quote: I'm a super fun and newly available (in stores and on PSN) game seeking that special person to take me home and get me going.
To be clear, I'm not a casual game; I'm the real deal, a true hardcore experience, and I'm looking for a serious gamer who can commit to a mix of action, strategy, and roleplaying to delve into my campaign and unlock my secrets.
I vary between 2" tall and total non-corporality. I love long walks along the lakeside; fast-paced, action-packed bullet hell shooter gameplay mixed with tactical RPG goodness; and dark chocolate.
I think I have a lot to offer a prospective player: over 40 missions spanning an emotionally charged narrative fraught with loss, hope, and retribution, not to mention a thrilling mix of fast-paced action and strategic roleplaying, beautiful visuals and sounds, and much more.
I'm looking for someone who can handle my uniquely involved, satisfyingly challenging mechanics. He/she must be open to a...
161w ago - A few days back we reported on the PlayStation Home Client Update version 1.4 patch notes, which arrives on November 11, and today PlayStationLifeStyle.net (linked above) has made available some leaked PlayStation Home screenshots that indicate a new PDA System, Status Updates and pets for Sony's virtual world are incoming.
While there is no confirmation yet if these changes will be included in the 1.4 update or shortly thereafter, based on the pictures they are definitely coming soon.
To quote: "Locust_Star confirmed that the Home wardrobe system would be experiencing a significant overhaul, and it appears that part of that overhaul will mean simpler, faster interface options through the PDA, much like the new start-up screen that users are used to.
Next we notice that users will now have the ability to select a status for their avatar, making it easier to let others know that you don't want to be bothered, or that you want to get a game going; this may even grant users the ability to change facial expressions, which many have been asking...
161w ago - Team17 Community Manager Mark Baldwin has revealed several customization options today in Worms: Battle Islands for PSP.
To quote: A couple of weeks ago, we introduced the latest game in our long-running Worms series, Worms: Battle Islands on PSP.
We gave an overview of the game and introduced some of the single-player and multiplayer modes included. This time, we want to show you some of the customisation options that will make Worms: Battle Islands the most personal title in the series.
The ability for players to customise their team of worms has always been a mainstay feature of the series and one that I think people who play the game get a lot of enjoyment from. For Worms: Battle Islands, we put a lot of effort into increasing the player's options for how they customise their team.
There are new customisation categories such as masks and backpacks, and over a hundred different items with which the player can leave their personal mark. It's possibly the highest degree of customisation we've ever had in a Worms game, and it's certainly the most customisable of the 2D games.
To act as a nice aside to the action and to allow the player to demonstrate their creative side, we've...
