What Happens When A Comic Nerd Asks About the PS4’s Top-Secret Superhero Game

Kotaku - I knew I wasn't going to get any real details about Infamous: Second Son out of Sucker Punch's Nate Fox. But I've been a big fan of the open-world PS3 exclusives, especially because their take on superhero action makes great use of the tight thematic bond that a superhero has with his city.

The story is too old to be commented.

Before I was sure that the Good Ending from I2 was canon, but now I'm questioning it a little. You have successfully planted the seeds of doubt. Damn you.

I don't understand why they won't tell us...unless they don't even know themselfs

Maybe they wanted to continue the game but saw that each ending was problematic. I mean I'm pretty sure in the first inFAMOUS despite there not being any MASSIVE change in the good/evil endings they still seemed to go with the good one for inFAMOUS 2. I mean inFAMOUS was all about how Cole used his powers but the good side of things just felt more right in my opinion. I don't think for a second Cole would murder is his best friend and kill millions, not after what Kesler told him and prepared him for, even killing Trish.

I still like to think deep down that since it's not called inFAMOUS 3 that it won't continue from any ending, that way when they bring Cole back...and THEY WILL, I know they said they won't but he has a large fanbase, he's too good to throw away, they will use inFAMOUS 3.

I just feel this was to expand the universe a bit more without continuing Coles story....kind of like they are giving it a rest then will come back to it in the future.

Hell inFAMOUS has a theme about time travel and alternative timelimes...what about if this is just a "what if" scenario if Cole chose a neutral ending, he defeated the beast but didn't activate the Ray Sphere fully, obviously they would have to fill it plot holes like what happened to the plague etc but it's possible

Still crossing my fingers Cole will return and this is just a spin off.

If they couldn't even confirm what ending is canon then something is up...come on it's not a hard question

If it's the good ending then all conduits we're wiped out, thats what is stated so I don't know where this came from

"and leaves only a few other superpowered folks like him in existence."

So it means that there wouldn't be any conduits around at all....not enough anyway they would crack down on it with high tec surveillance and repression.

If it's the bad ending then humans wouldn't have control would they...that's what people keep forgetting when they say the bad ending is canon. Humans would of stood no chance against thousands of conduits and the plague wiping them out

Again disagrees for nothing, despite neither being wrong or right but offering an opinion

Stay Classy N4G...

Simon_Brezhnev1881d ago

I didnt disagree but i want to say they mixed the ending together. I know it dont make since but as of right now humans and conduits shouldnt be alive together. LOL

baldulf1881d ago

Damn Kotaku. Good ending supossedly killed ALL conduits on the world, even those who have not awakened yet.

They can't even get that right.

We don't know why there are still conduits seven years later. Either bad ending is canon or something else happened that allowed some conduits to survive.

hazelamy1881d ago

maybe they'll take a cue from the X-Men and the relevant part of their biology that makes them conduits is dormant until puberty or something, much like the X gene for Marvels mutants.

that could mean a whole generation of young conduits surviving the good ending, because effectively, they weren't actually conduits at that time.

in a comic books universe, anything's possible, even death isn't the end for a popular character.

sorceror1711881d ago

Duh. I just figured it out. It'll take place in the timeline that gave rise to Kessler!

Simon_Brezhnev1881d ago

I aint going to lie. I miss Kessler he use to be my ass on hard but im glad i was evil because all i did was spam grenades. LOL

Prodigy-X1881d ago

Guys, in inFamous 2, on an evil mission, Nix asks "You got any family?" Cole responds with "Ya, a younger brother" that's obviously who this character is. The second son

r211881d ago

I thought the same thing but the protagonist for inFamous: Second Son is called Delsin Rowe. Doesnt seem to be related to Cole McGrath unless their mother got divorced and married someone else.

sorceror1711881d ago

Well... divorce and remarriage, conceivably.

Prodigy-X1881d ago

It could be his half brother.

hazelamy1881d ago

i'd forgotten that part, you might be on to something there.
