"Infamous": An Electrifying Experience

Sucker Punch, the studio behind the family-friendly Sly Cooper games, has finally made its debut on PlayStation 3 with Infamous, a gritty and modern look at an everyday Joe who acquires superpowers. The comparison can be made to Spider-Man: You're a reluctant hero blessed with powers; you just have to decide how to use them. The city is yours to save ... or dominate.

You play Cole MacGrath, a delivery man who wakes up after an explosion takes the lives of everyone else within six city blocks. After two weeks, Cole recovers from the blast to discover that he has been infused with electrical powers, starting with the ability to power a light bulb.

With the explosion believed to be the work of a terrorist organization, the city is locked down, and several gangs vie for control. Cole and his friends make a break for the city gates, only to be stopped by federal agents. Cole quickly agrees to help them in exchange for escape for himself and his friends, and he begins a battle to restore order to the three islands of the city.

Cole is more heroic for doing good deeds, such as helping the remaining city police, and more infamous for evil actions, such as executing criminals after detaining them. Becoming more heroic or infamous grants Cole new powers, and while you can alternate between good and evil, you won't reach your full potential by mixing the two.

Ryan Gosling in Half NelsonI consider myself an Academy Awards completist: Prior to the annual Oscar telecast, I want to see as many of the nominated films as I can. But I'm also a lazy completist - I want to see these movies so long as I don't have to drive really far. (This is why, to my disappointment and discredit, I'll be watching Sunday's telecast without having viewed Little Children, Venus, and The Good German.)

Thank goodness, then, for DVD.
