Swag Report: The inFamous “Guide to Empire City”

inFamousGuide 001.jpg

Now this is the type of swag I really appreciate. My final review copy of Sony’s new PS3 game inFamous arrived this afternoon, and with it came this stunning, 40-page “Guide to Empire City.” The review guide is loaded with information about the game — character bios, descriptions for Cole’s myriad special powers, story background, an overview of the city and more — and in keeping in tune with the game’s themes, the guide is presented in the style of a comic book. It’s of superb quality too, with glossy, heavy-duty pages and crisp artwork

Even though they don’t quite capture the beauty of the real thing, I’ve snapped a few pictures here for you to peek at. Will be back with a review of the game asap.
