The Paint Washes Off

HIGH Crossing the city by gliding and jumping through satellite dishes without ever touching the ground.

LOW The overlong pattern fights against Augustine.

WTF The feds let Augustine destroy all these bridges? Do they have any idea how much a bridge costs?

InFamous Impressions

InFamous Screenshot

So, I told myself I wasn't going to plunk the money down after playing the InFamous demo on the PlayStation Network, but I did. It's just that I've been playing so many RPGs lately that I was starting to burn out of gaming altogether, and I definitely needed something action-oriented to get the juices flowing again. I was weak, I admit it.

Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves – Review

Sly has evolved from his platforming roots. There are still plenty of props to smash which bestow the destruction-minded gamer with coins to collect, but it hardly seems worthwhile when careful pickpocketing is more viable. The various thief moves make a return (including my favorite, Paraglider) and navigating the levels as Sly is as joyous as ever.

Sly may be the best thief around, but even he can't pull this one off alone. Recruit five returning as well as new members of the thieving gang to take down the maniacal Dr. M.
