Sucker Punch on inFamous: Second Son: We Were Ready “To do Another Cole Game”, Why They Didn’t

Since this story delves into major spoilers for anyone who hasn’t completed inFamous 2, turn back now if you don’t want anything ruined. - PSLS (inFamous: Second Son, PS4)

Pretty simple and straightforward logic.......but I am not surprised that more people completed the positive arc. On that note, I don't care what they say.....I still expect Cole sometime before I die.

I believe that most people play the game good first, and then follow with an additional play-through on evil.

For inFamous I played it good and then evil. But this time around I only played it good. I didn't play it the second time.

That may be why more have finished the good arc.

Yes. It's kind of a stigma that most people follow but, there's really no way to twist the numbers to find out what they would be without it.

They should've just done a poll to see what we wanted but I'm happy with the new character, his powers are already cool than Coles an a new story is always welcomed.

True but we are naturally good.

we just do the evil bad karma in the game for fun, trophy and to see how the plot is when we choose the bad karma.

We humans are naturally good kind but can be very bad if out ego takes control of us, we stop been us when that happen..

Hopefully he comes back at one point as DLC or a new game. I don't think Sucker Punch are going to dismiss Cole entirely and they can always bring him back. Remember, Kessler came into Cole's world from a different outcome/timeline. Maybe we'll see Cole again from the evil ending of Infamous 2 meet Delsin at some point. Like there were two Coles, one good and one evil in a different dimension or something. A lot of ideas and possibilities can happen about that.

sucker punch
and PD with GT series

both teams are so small yet produce awesome games, i watched the PD documentary and it was astonishing that after the game completes many of them actually compete in professional racing

and sucker punch are just awesome since PS2 days, always loyal to sony and sony always loyal to SP

can't wait to see how they progress through this gen

SuckerPunch, just show me an old Zeke or an easter egg of Cole and Ill be happy as a clam.
Reverent  +   858d ago
I really want to see a reference to Zeke's "Dunbar Beam". It would be so easy. It has to happen.
ZBlacktt  +   858d ago
That's my only problem with series. I start to become attached to the character I'm playing. So when they go away, it's very much like starting over from scratch.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   858d ago
true i get attached to characters also but infamous actually has a reason to do it,cole is actually dead,its not like when they switched alex mercer with heller, or dante for nero,where these characters werent dead,they should have been the protagonist of theyre games,and for some stupid reason alex is now evil and dante is just playing uncle,
ZBlacktt  +   858d ago
Yes, but all people know about Infamous is Cole, lol. So we are all at a new beginning. So we have to remember this is Infamous still. Take all we knew and now saying you are this person, bond again.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   858d ago
well i do think that we'll see cole again,and its because this game is called infamous second son,not 3,lol,and i just realized that maybe the numbered games will be about cole,but spin-offs like second son will be about another conduit with different powers,infamous 3rd son could be about a guy with water powers for example,
ZBlacktt  +   858d ago
Maybe Co-Op with both together! HHHmmmmmm, lol. Either way looking forward to the game. It looks very very good on Next Gen PS4.
kidhero99  +   858d ago
To me the good ending was always the canonical choice with the evil side being more of a What if.
AceBlazer13  +   858d ago
finished good as my main through cause evil just made douche bag decisions. seriously slaughtering resistance to get them to help you?
fluxmulder  +   858d ago
One generic white guy is as good as another.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   858d ago
what are you talking about
flipflopfacts  +   858d ago
Sorry dudes i skipped infamous 2. I loved the first one but i hated the character design when they stuck the original Cole head on that new chracter's body who was suppose to be Cole. It felt way off as character design goes. It just didn't felt right at all. It was a huge face palm on both ends. the fanboys who screamed injustice and the game developers who did that. If you would know the back story of why they redesigned Cole then people should have learned to accept him. If they even do that again in part 3 and keep that body i'm never going to touch that game.

And I always thought that because of the lightning that hits the boat that Cole's body is on at the end of the good ending could be a possible doorway for them to make a sequel with him following the good ending (which I always did when I played the games for the first time).

I thought that, well, the lightning hit Cole and that might have brought him back to life. Videogame and fiction logic, but it worked for me; I mean it's a superhero game, isn't it.

I guess they did have more reasons and maybe thought another character would give them more options for new things to try out, without any boundaries from the previous games.

No matter what the reason was, I loved the first two games and I'm extremely excited for the third one. I can't wait.

I still find it strange that they would base the original character decision on people choosing the good ending.

I mean it's pretty standard that the 1st time through a game, the player will go for the safe option
& then choose the playful option the 2nd time round if they bother to play a 2nd time.

Not that I don't like the character change, we'd get the same quality game either way.
I trust SP's decision & can't wait to see how the actor behind Joel (TLOU) handles it.

Well I'm wondering about if we will see a Cole appearance. In the trailor they showed when Deslin takes the neon powers there is a vision which shows someone in a cloak at the end.
