There's a pretty obvious reason why

would be back and it's the only thing which makes sense since the character had literally NO FUNCTION in Infamous 1.

By about the final 1/3rd of the game it was getting pretty repetitive so bearing any sweeping gameplay improvements I'll probably skip Infamous 2.

I loved inFAMOUS, gameplay was so much fun. I don't mind the new look I just wish they didn't change it as that kind of ruins the image you had already assossiated with Cole. I mean even in the Uncharted 2 MP you can play as Good Cole or Evil Cole, so it's just wierd to see a new look for him.

Looks like he's got the same or similar pants as the original, just without the jacket. I would be surprised if there weren't multiple costume options for him - even something as simple as just him having the option of not wearing his jacket.

The main improvement that I'd like for this game is that I think they should let you know how many shards you have left to find in each area... at least that will give people a chance to find those 1 or 2 last shards... assuming that you have to find shards again. Right now I have about 1 or 2 shards left and I've searched the entire city about 2-3 times and I cannot find those shards I've walked all around, hitting L3 and there's been no luck whatsoever. If I could find those 1 or 2 shards I'd have a platinum in this game... oh well.


did you check the logs sticking out in the water that doesnt appear when you hit L3? (theres youtube vids showing where it is exactly) my last one was under the big cranes all the way in the back. you have no reason to go back there ever, so thats why i missed that one.

So you want them to have a low selling, unprofitable game then.

(This is no slam against the games themselves, just stating a fact, regardless if they all went GH, they weren't as highly lauded as inFamous is, plus I think they want to move away from the kiddie image that the game drips with)

And when compared to Ratchet & Clank and Jak & Daxter series of games they always were 3rd in popularity, not something Sony or Sucker Punch is interested in going back too.


if they made 3 sly cooper games, they were profitable. unless you work for sucker punches accounting team, you dont know what profit they made. now thats stating a fact.

infamous 1 sold 1.5 million. hardly huge numbers by any means but decent for a new IP with an average score in the mid 80's. sly cooper has a pre established following/fan base, so i dont think its that hard to put up numbers like that if promoted properly.

There hasn't been a Sly Cooper game in about 4-5 years, right? It would be really hard to even come close to the ~2 million that Infamous did since it was the third-tier franchise behind Jak and Ratchet last-gen.

I Finally found my last shard the other day, at the top of the tower by where you fought Kessler, It didn't appear with L3 until I was almost the the top.

Everyone, Commander speaks /English./ However in his or her profile page they note that they are deaf. I think we can all understand what they are typing here, so there's no need to be in their face about it, okay?

The link on the playstation blog gives a rundown of the story and says it is Cole. Says he's looking to get more powerful to fight a thing so ya, makes sense as to why he has ice powers.

Cole grows hair, gains ice powers, and has a different voice... Makes no sense, but whatever works! I loved the first game, so I hope this one is twice as good.

I don't know.. he looks different, has a different voice, and has tattoos that weren't visible in the last game.

On top of that- he appears to be using some sort of shock rod to do his melee attacks instead of his hands like the last game.

The new voice wasn't nearly as bad as the last voice. I'm looking forward to learning more.

I probably should have avoided the trailer. The new voice sounds so annoying compared to the last one? At least the first voice just sounded like some tired beat upon guy.

Hey guys, here's Nathan Drake in inFAMOUS, too! With tattoos!

Ugh.

I could get with the morphing looks thing, since Kessler didn't look like Cole much; but Kessler was ass ugly, had a long face and pointy chin.

I thought it was awesome that Cole was an unattractive main character, and I'm not looking forward at all to having Nathan Drake jump around with "witty" remarks in response to everything that happens (what I'm dreading will happen).

Cole had plastic surgery?!? :shock: I don't understand why they changed his look. Before, he looked like he could have fit the villian look and the hero look, but now he looks like he would only fit into the hero slot. He has no...ruggedness (?) or intriugue to him.

Anyway, they need to figure out some way where it is more exciting to explore the city. I liked that they had a full city to explore as well as rooftops and power lines and enemies littered every now and again, but I think what made the game most repetitive were the powers. Shock bomb, shock bomb, shock bomb, and everyone was dead...

Check out @RealKrakrabbit - Twitter Page Full of News, Tidbits, etc., etc.

 

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

They changed a lot, but it doesn't really bother me that much. If the gameplay is still good/better then that's good enough for me.
