InFamous: Second Son Review

Mar 24, 2014

  As most of you know, I’m a big fan of the original Infamous game for the Playstation 3. Sucker Punch gave super heroic gaming a much needed shot in the arm and created a runaway hit in the process. It wasn’t without its flaws, but apart from relay missions, the game was a ton of fun and promised more fun in the possibilities of sequels....
