Most gamers know there isn't always a good reason to pre-order a game at GameStop, but when they present you with an exclusive incentive, you might want to drop the five bucks.
According to Destructoid, you'll have to pre-order the promising Infamous if you want to nab all of Cole's special abilities. If you've been paying attention, you should know that the game centers on a main character infused with special energy and electricity, and he can use it to his advantage in a post-apocalyptic city. You should take all the help you can get, though, so listen to GameStop's offer:
"Reserve inFamous and receive a code that unlocks the GameStop exclusive Gigawatt Blades Power. With electric blades extending from his wrists, a single blow annihilates any foe and transforms Cole's hands into instruments of sheer destruction. Yet still gentle enough to allow for the occasional tickling."
This is interesting, because it could actually have a significant impact on the gameplay. It's nice to have little extras like costumes, but when you're presenting the player with an ability nobody else will have…? There's something iffy about that, and we may not be the biggest fan of this new trend; forcing us to reserve a game in order to experience the game to the fullest extent. If you want to get technical about it, you don't really have to pay anything extra; you just have to pay it ahead of time. And we're only talking about five bucks, but still, it could become somewhat irritating for those who have no interest in shopping at GameStop.
Either way, though, we're still amped up for Infamous . We've all got our fingers crossed for something special.
