PowerMad Review of inFAMOUS for the PlayStation 3

400°
270w ago - inFAMOUS is 1 of 3 triple A titles that are coming out this summer, the other 2 titles being Red Faction Guerrilla and Prototype.

People are really wondering if this underdog is really as good as it claims to be. The truth is inFAMOUS is better then I had expected, but it still let me down in certain areas. Although these areas are the same thing every other sandbox game (Besides GTA) does wrong.

To quote: Dr. Malikov and The Grims didn't just have a part in Resistance 2's campaign–you could also assume the role of these characters on the game's competitive multiplayer battlefields. Well, that's if you pre-ordered R2 at select U.S. retailers and received one of the bonus multiplayer skins.

• The comic book series: Wildstorm (a division of DC Comics) has published a six-part miniseries that revealed all-new details about the Resistance universe, which included an in-depth look at the Sentinels and touched upon aspects of the Retribution storyline. Issue #6 just hit store shelves last week.

• The novel: Ever wonder what exactly happened during the two-year gap that separates...

270w ago - It's finally happening. The currently PS2, PC and Xbox 360 MMORPG Final Fantasy XI is now making its way to Sony's PlayStation 3 console, following it's earlier versions very late.

You heard me, I want my third Kingdom Hearts. Below is a scan for those interested!

To quote: We're going to launch a brand new space in PlayStation Home called BUZZ! HQ, where players can chat and meet up with other trivia fans in a new lobby area or take part in a massive 64-player BUZZ! trivia showdown!

The game works by making you run around the studio on a massive BUZZ! Buzzer to answer questions, all of which are taken from the best content that you've created on the [Register or Login to view links] Web site.

Four colored answer buttons are laid out on the floor and you need to make sure you're standing on the right answer when the time runs out.





The winner's decided over four rounds, and there are a number of exclusive Home prizes up for grabs for the greatest players.

We are very excited to be bringing a fantastic new BUZZ! multiplayer game to Home and we know this is going to be a great social experience.

So keep an eye out for the new BUZZ! space, which will go live very soon. In the meantime, check out this virtual tour of the space and let us know what you think.
