NowGamer speaks to Sony directly about the proposed redesign of inFamous 2's Cole MacGrath.
This is turning into Cole...gate lol.
I think theres only a very small amount of people who actually care about infamous its not like we're dealing with some big popular game here
Yeah, only a small amount of people care about infamous....that's why a sequel is coming, because people don't really care for it. /s
You're totally right, 1.5 million people that bought the first game, and that isn't counting preowned sales, is totally a small number. I have to say, that was one of the most ignorant things ever, think before you type.
oh. wait... (sorry, i didn't mean to feed the troll, but i couldn't resist).
LOL! Bubble for you! :D
like toothpaste? total care or whitening?
i think a very small minority actually get your comment.though not sure i even got it right.
took me this many posts to get it. dammit. lol i'm slow
Water gate/Cole...gate nixon controversey/toothpaste/infamo us character
Laughing at your own joke? Cute.
I really dont understand why everybody is making a big deal out of this , i dont care if they changed his look or not , all i care about is the gameplay and the story cant wait for this bad boy ..
its stupid, its like judging rambo first blood on the color of his bandanna
No...its like then announcing that its not going to be Sylvester Stallone playing Rambo and then a month later changing their mind.
;/ hmm....good point i guess, but im sticking with my analogy
I agree, so they changed the way he looks, big deal. Characters feature redesigns all the time.
I just want to play the game... I hope they add in some new powers to play with, but other than that I just want the damn game so I can blow up bad guys with my awesome lightning powers. Is that to much to ask.
OMG the guy in the inFamous 2 - Comic-Con Dev Diary with the red spiderman t-shirt is the REAL COLE!!
if they changed the look it would probably take time redrawing the comic-like cutscenes(if they already made them that is)
Who prefers the new Cole?
No, you're not. :) And I didn't care if he kind of looked like Nathan Drake.
please explain your problem with the first cole though? I'm just curious and would like to know.
I just like the idea of having a more "Ordinary" looking character who could walk besides everyone else, I think it adds more character with a seemingly normal person taking on something much bigger than himself, and it makes him more relatable. Also the last Cole looked quite scruffy and unclean.
lol so he's suppose 2 look clean after what happened to the city which was his fault. smh
They had a new voice actor playing Cole in Infamous 2, so they wanted to give him a new look to complement his new voice. A lot of people thought Cole's voice didn't fit the character (It kinda didn't) so they hired someone else. I think the new guy sounds fine, and they can add a few tatoos if they wish, I think they just strayed a bit too far with new design. You have too keep him bald, it was kinda his signature.
he seemed like a normal guy to me already, who came across a messed up situation. i personally can't think of anything outrageous about how he looked or sounded. he was a more scruffy meat and potatoes guy who worked for a living. so to me he is changed from one type of ordinary guy to another type of ordinary guy. If they do just change his appearance and voice it makes the story incoherent. they would need an explination which they could pull off being comic book like.
Let's do announcements about announcements. Where is the surprises now a days.
I prefer the original in most forms of entertainment. You can replace an actor with a better actor and make a better film...ie Hulk and The incredible Hulk but i was just attached to the original eric banna even though I prefer Norton as an actor to play bruce banner. By attached I mean grown accustom to. I'd get the game regardless but I just didnt like the look they showed of the new cole. Seemed like he didnt have a care in the world...very removed from the events that had happened in HIS world. I understand that everybody's allowed to smile and look neat as they were pr shots after all but it just seemed pointless changing something that wasn't broken in my eyes. With an actor there are many more factors that could sway a studio to change something.....with a digital character theres less reasons and now SP have created a slight issue from nothing.
He looks strong and intelligent
Sinister. He needs at least some innocence...
but his girlfriend got killed and he was told that he has to fight in the future some freaking monster to save the world O.0
If his cock isn't at least 8 inches long I'm not buying the game. I demand a redesign!!! Fuck these articles are stupid.
that gaming redesigns within a generation are a rarity and they are a rarity for a reason. Gamers put more hours into video characters than they do movie ones. In actually fact its a possibility that people can grown more accustom to video game characters than movie ones. Could you imaging everybody being fine with a redesign of Mr Sheppard in Mass effect 3....Yes some people would like the new design but the people who put the hours in would probably be like WTF
They should have just cleaned up the old cole. Little longer hair with a different everyday type wardrobe change would have sufficed. Sure it was only one game but many gamers spent hours on the last game and became attacched to the character. Its a shame they feel that a better looking character is needed to appeal more to the masses tastes. Reminds me of hollywood focusing more on eyecandy and less on talent and people that actually fit a role.
Hey im happy aslong as he can chain leap fences.
leap chain fences?
I'm ok with the new Cole tbh and I can understand why they have given him a bit of a change. I am a bit disappointed the voice isn't the same though. Although Sucker Punch need to officially comment on this and put all the rumours to rest.
I understand that you can't please everyone, but changing Cole wasn't neccessary, sure, characters in movies get different actors playing as them i.e. Bond, but video game characters aren't real, and so it doesn't make much sense as to why Sucker Punch changed him. Perhaps SP didn't like the original Cole? and if they didn't, fair enough. However, I'm sure many people would be angry if ND completley changed Nathan Drake, and so its understandable that many were annoyed with Cole's change, I know I was.
The difference was Naughty Dog got it right the first time with Drake. He was a genuinely flawed human character that wasn't imagined from the "I'm a wannabe MMA fighter" douche-o-matic machine like so many other protagonist from this generation. Old Cole (to me) was lame. I saw the new (now old) Cole as an improvement.
