Excerpt: The PlayStation 3, as many will already know, has a dearth of exclusives at the moment. Only a few titles stretched out over the life span of the system haven’t seen the light of day on other platforms, so when Infamous came along, it was a good day already for exclusive hungry PlayStation owners. And the wait was very much worth it.
Excerpt: Sony felt so bad about getting hacked, and having all that customer information stolen that they are giving away games to those who will come back to their network. There were not many good games for families that Family Friendly Gaming has not already covered. So I decided to go with inFAMOUS. Sony announced a sequel to this ‘T’ for Teen rated video game. Your character is a super powered man who gains more skills as the game progresses.
Conclusion: Alongside the campaign, the other modes from Shogun 2 have returned with some serious changes. If you enjoy skirmishes and historical battles, there’s a whole host of additional ones for you to play through, with the new units and armies. The new units also make the jump to the multiplayer sphere, with the online campaign mode adapting to allow you to wage a modernized war.

Cons: Naval battles are still boring. AI is still occasionally ridiculous. Loading Times are long.
Excerpt: Gaming spin-offs are far too rare in my opinion. After spending years producing all these assets, glorious worlds, and titles that we all adore to tinker around with, why not maximize the cash coming in by giving us a few spin-offs from time to time? GTA IV did it brilliantly. Red Dead Redemption succeeded too. But why haven’t we had an additional tale from the Mass Effect universe yet?
Excerpt: Halloween, for better or worse, is the time of year when it seems that every movie is horror themed. For a while, the Saw films were released around this time. Paranormal Activity has taken that spot, having a yearly release during the Halloween season. Recently, video game companies have been getting in on the action, [...
Conclusion: Playing Festival of Blood made me wonder why someone doesn’t just make an open world vampire game. This content is the most fun I have had sucking blood from innocent people. If you enjoyed Infamous 2 there is now reason why you wouldn’t enjoy the hell out of Festival of Blood. This game is out there to remind you that vampires can still be cool.
Excerpt: Returning to New Marais without the hindrance of continuity, Festival of Blood is a unique chance for some irreverent fun within the inFamous universe. The city has changed significantly since we last saw it during inFamous 2 : the streets of New Marais are crowded with costumed festival goers and lined with pavilions.
