Though most worlds revel in the glorification of superpowers, the same cannot necessarily be said of inFAMOUS: Second Son, which continues the series legacy of grounding superpowered mayhem in a real-world atmosphere.

The Mosh Lives Tour attracted a huge, diverse crowd Wednesday, March 19 at the Magic Stick in Detroit.
