•An exclusive 'Gigawatt Blades' Super Power: The Gigawatt Blades supercharges Cole's arm into an instrument of destruction unmatched by any other melee weapon in game. Although very powerful, you'll still have to use this weapon wisely, as it takes a considerable drain on your powers.

300°
299w ago - We have uploaded a gameplay video straight from the GDC for the PS3 exclusive inFamous from Sony and Sucker Punch Studios.

The video showcases the 'Terrorized Streets' mission in the game, you can it HD 720p quality below, along with a list of some of the key features in the game.

Video: Infamous: Karma System Hands-on for PlayStation 3

50°
300w ago - Infamous is the first PlayStation 3 outing from Sucker Punch, the guys behind the much-loved Sly Cooper games.

In this title, you'll pick up the pieces of Cole's life in a nearly destroyed world. See, Cole was an ordinary messenger who saw Empire City collapse when a package he was delivering exploded in his hands and leveled a large section of town.

When Cole came out of his coma, he found Empire City completely quarantined off from the rest of the world, riots in the street, mutated gangs in control, and his body infused with electrical super-powers. Now able to shoot electrical blasts from his hands, survive falls from the top of buildings, and knock cars into the air with telekinetic blasts, it's up to Cole to protect his friends and survive this brave new world.




The interesting thing about all of this is the fact that Cole doesn't have to use his powers for the good of all mankind -- he can be as selfish as you want him to be. See, Infamous employs a seven-level Karma System that monitors your actions and lets you know how good or bad Cole is being.

See, this will all be broken down in a little crescent-shaped meter next to your power level. If...
 

Videos: Shocking New inFamous PlayStation 3 Trailers Available

100°
300w ago - inFamous is due out in around three months and we still haven't seen that much of it yet. These videos seek to change that by showing around eleven minutes of gameplay montage footage.

To quote: It's looking good, if a bit samey. The platforming sections look like they're a lot of fun, though the combat seems like it could get a bit repetitive.

We guess that'll depend on the full scope of Cole's powers. We suspect that the game's writing and story will make or break the experience.

Check out all four videos below, courtesy of GameTrailers:

302w ago - Today Brian Fleming of Sucker Punch Productions introduced the new inFamous PS3 Trailer on Sony's PlayStation Blog. To quote:

What can I say? We're workin' hard and it really shows in the game. The detail work, the polish, the bug fixing – it all has a massive effect on the end experience... But while we're feeling good, we're also a long way from that release disc... Gotta keep grinding...

So okay, enough babble... You're here to see a new inFamous trailer, not listen to me gaze at my navel, so let's get on with it, and I'll give you some thoughts and tidbits...





The FX and details on the powers are a continued source of work and polish, and if you look closely at the piece, you'll see Cole deployed his Polarity Wall shield, something we've not shown before... Yet another power for his arsenal!

Probably time for me to get back to the electron mine... Status meeting in 12 minutes and I'm behind on all the stuff I was supposed to be doing instead of writing blog posts :-D. Talk to you more when we get close to the end...
