When I first heard that Sucker Punch studios was creating a non Sly-Cooper game, I was admittedly a little disappointed and a little wary of this new project, but all those worries have been dissolved after playing the inFamous demo. Around 40 minutes long, this exciting delve into the game proved to me that I need to purchase this sandbox adventure game, and put my PS3 to use.

The demo begins with the back-story of the game set in the fictional Empire City. Here, a bomb which Cole your character unknowingly delivers, as he is a courier, decimates part of the city, but leaves Cole unharmed. In fact, he now has gained electric powers resulting from the explosion.

The resulting blast however also had many negative impacts on the city itself. Law enforcement crumbled under the might of local gangs, and the city itself was quarantined from the outside world.

For my play time with the demo, I found just wandering around the city to be extremely enjoyable, and could easily see myself getting lost in just exploring it. Cole seamlessly climbs up ledges on buildings, or grinds on power lines, sucks up electricity from nearby electrical equipment, and of course lobs concentrated bolts of electricity at enemies.

Combat is fun and frantic, where you can mix melee attacks with your electrical powers to create quite the light show. From the demo, all the enemies I encountered were called Reapers, which I’m sure is some sort of local gang that gained powers from the bomb that went off.

During my time I was able to complete 4 missions around the city. These included making sure a train full of hostages reached freedom, destroying a water tower vat filled with tar, protecting a medical supply crate, and destroying a Reaper semi-truck.

The game also features a karma system, which is dictated by the choices that Cole makes. The more heroic acts he commits, his lightening bolts are blue, and gains powers associated with being a hero. If Cole commits evil deeds, his bolts are dark red, and gains some devastating electrical attacks, harming all around him.

If you own a PS3, your money would be well spent investing in purchasing this game. There is so much for you to do within Empire City, plus who doesn’t want to be badass wielding electricity at will.

Left_4_Dead___Witch___Zoey_by_Pfennige50

It seems as though one wasn’t enough. Awhile back, a live action Left 4 Dead video was created, entitled Left 4 Head. Those who don’t already know this video showed innocent female character of Left 4 Dead, Zoey, engaging in sexual acts with some of the special infected of the game.

The entire concept and video is hilarious for many different reasons, and it seems more have sprung up in the original’s place.

One that co-editor, Santiago, stumbled upon, while on the G4 forums, depicted our good friend Zoey startling a witch ( you all knew it was going to eventually happen) and the sexual acts ensue!

For obvious reasons we can’t post the link to said video, but if you look, it shouldn’t be too hard to find.

After watching the video, I think we may just have the next Scarlett Johansson on our hands. What do you think?

UPDATE BY SANTIAGO AZPURUA-BORRAS AKA “SLIVERGOD:”

Because Im a nice guy, Im willing to give the link to the video for non-believers or for people who are just plain lazy. Shoot me an email at the address: slivergodxxv@gmail.com  Make the subject line “Zoey startles a witch.”
