INFAMOUS 2: Is the Graphical Leap Evolutionary?

GB: "It’s a well known fact that sequels on the PlayStation 3 tend to look better. We have seen live examples in Uncharted 2 Among Thieves, which was a ridiculous evolution of the franchise compared to Drakes Fortune. We also have Resistance 2, the shooter that was released in 2008 that looks so much better than the launch game. There are other sequels too which have have looked better as time has gone. Obviously one of the reasons of this evolution is that developers are now pretty much well versed with the PS3′s architecture."

Fight Night Champion Art Blog

My name is Ben Ross and I have been at EAC for almost 8 years. Most recently, I have been working as a Lead Character Artist on the Fight Night franchise, which as far as character art goes, is a dream come true.

Scary amount of 'Kill Obama' levels in LittleBigPlanet 2

Hey guys, did you hear that Barack Obama is a bad president? He is such a bad president, actually! We should do something to assert our political beliefs and take a stand for what we believe in? How about we create a level in LittleBigPlanet 2 where we get to kill the president? THAT WILL SHOW HIM! 

It's always embarrassing when you get a bunch of repugnant teen gamers talking about politics, but LittleBigPlanet 2 has allowed these pimply pundits to express themselves in worryingly creepy ways.
