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...


They need more moments like climbing the tower in the second part of the game. One of the recurring problems in these sandbox or open-city games is not enough memorable moments. While Infamous was a great game, I can't remember nearly as much of it as I can Uncharted 2. It needs more set pieces mixed in with the open world gameplay.

thats beause u2 was awesome and had alot more replayability to its sp than infamous. alot of the stuff missions in infamous became a chore after a while. the boss battles were kind of meh too in some spots. they could use more variety in enemy types too.

so did they say whether youll start the game with all abilites open or will they do some kind of lame "oh my all my powers are gone" thing? or since it seems like hes going to get ice powers could most of his abilities switch over to varying ice abilities?

I couldn't have said it better myself. Although, I just beat inFamous about a week ago and I loved it.

I'm really dissapointed that they've redesigned Cole. He was so different in the trailers that I thought it was a completely new character and argued with my friend for quite a bit before we looked it up.

*edit -

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 felt Zeke was the goofy and out there personality that was needed to contrast Cole's non-chalant demeanor, so I didn't mind him at all. Your theory does not sound correct though because inFamous 2 starts off with Cole being whooped by the Beast and then moving to the new city to become more powerful and defeat him where he's seen with Zeke.

I always think its a mistake to add in all of this crazy timeline, warp in time, hole in the alternate universe, different voice, look, city stuff. I don't understand why keeping Cole the way he was, and adding in new powers (which makes sense, considering he was hit by a bomb so really he has the potential to do/earn any powers) and environments and whatever else they want to add in.

But changing up the story as much as they might be trying to do is just a bad idea. It will either just confuse people or not feel like a "smooth" transition from InFamous 1 to InFamous 2.

FYI, the reason they changed voice actors was due to needing someone to mo-cap while recording. The old VA wouldn't cut it.

GameInformer has a special podcast to answer questions about Infamous and a theme to a lot of the questions is that they've taken criticisms seriously when making the sequel. Specifically, they mentioned that the clingy jumps will be reworked for the sequel. You retain quite a few of your powers to start with to make you feel powerful at the start while still having room to grow throughout the game. You start off with the cable-grinding ability and they've expanded the traversal stuff quite a bit. They also mention that despite the fact that

Sigh.

Thanks Tanuki. That picture... kind of killed a bit of my positive vibe. I'm probaby still going to enjoy the game, but I'll miss the old Cole.

I enjoyed the first game quite a bit and I'm looking forward to this one. Personally, I don't really care that Cole lost his jacket and grew some hair, even though I did like the old look.

And although I liked the old voice, too, I'm fine with a change as long as he doesn't become too whiny or anything. Let's reserve judgement until we hear more of the new voice - could be an improvement (or at least just different, neither better nor worse).

The look and voice of Cole is still stupid, but holy shit that gameplay looked good. I love the destructibility of the environment. That cyclone type move at the end was bad ass as well.

I'm sure they will still have to have a different voice actor still. Hopefully it's not the same old Cole but more of a hybrid of the two or a happy medium.

I didn't like the fact that they were trying to use the same character and make him look totally different- but I hated Cole and Zeke so much I was going to let it slide.

Now i'm in wait and see mode.

I loved the first game and didnt mind Cole. I never even thought of him as being a bad character until i read about it with these articles. I like the fact they are going back to the same look of Cole 1. Would have been strange seeing him look different, but supposed to be the same person. Zeke is the problem. That guy character should die. Very annoying.

I just hope if they have moral choices again at key story points that they ACTUALLY have a story impact this time. It was super lame when I replayed the game a second time for the evil ending that the result was the same damn thing on big karma events like the choice between the two towers and whether or not to re-activate the ray sphere.

New trailer showing off a glimpse of the Old Cole, good to see him back! It looks like he still has no hair but a little bit of a cleaner shave and still wearing the new outfit that newer character model had.

The video's not that great for getting a clear shot of the new old cole, but here's the best shot I could get with the flash trailer:

I just got back into the first one after a few months. I forgot about being able to buy new powers so I was getting bored. But once I upgraded some, and the story missions started to mix things up I was hooked again. Only on the second islands ending I believe though.

Still, I am glad to se there will be more of this even if I am a ways off from finishing the first. I had hoped they would take it to south America since they mentioned the terrorists there but that could have been false news in-game. The new city In the trailer looks great, so I hope to finish the story soon to understand it all better.
