We’re pretty well connected over here at Corrupted Saves. In fact, we were just hanging out with guys over at Sucker Punch Productions, eating some Handi-Snacks and talking about the upcoming release of their PlayStation 3 exclusive, inFAMOUS 2. (Editor’s Note: The dimwits behind Corrupted Saves have never ever… ever met the fine gentlemen of Sucker Punch Productions, nor can they honestly vouch for the developer’s love or distaste for Handi-Snacks. But seriously, who doesn’t love smearing cheese around with a plastic stick?)

While we were chatting it up with them, pressing for Sly Cooper 4 details, they had a message they wanted us to pass along to all of you. That message is to remind everyone that when dealing with those who are completely ignorant to the world of video games, also known as your parents, specificity is key.

Let them know that you want the guy that shoots electricity, not webbing, green stuff or batarangs. You want the hedgehog, not a bandicoot, gorilla or bobcat. I don’t even want to tell you what type of game I ended up with one holiday when I asked my parents for the “game with the plumber.” Scary stuff. Remember, you’re not just making your parents’ shopping experience easier; you’re doing yourself a favor as well.

Be sure to ask for inFAMOUS 2 by name, and in which configuration, when it electrifies the PlayStation 3 on June 7th.
