gamerdischarge: Screenshots of the new and improved Cole.
But does he SOUND better (no lisp like the new voice actor has)?
Lmfao Commander Shephard now controls lightning! Or is that Jason Statham in the second picture? Game looks mint, Day 1!
He sounds like a young Martin Sheen.
Open world on a console. The sad part is that its only going to get better. It not only highlights the shortcomings of 2k, although i'm sure they could have pulled this off with just the PS3 to work with. Kind of a fact at this point.. + Character models + lighting/ambient occlusion + Post Fx/Motion Blur + 720p + Stream loading yeah.
and I approve your comment 150%. But like I said in another article, be careful what you say on N4G now. Anything remotely as true as your comment is quickly reported as trolling here. Not sure who would but i definitely think there are a lot of bitter 360 fanboys on this site that mark anything pro PS3 as trolling. Who mods the comment sections anyway? I wish they had a visible "mod" by their names so we could see whose behind the scenes.
compared to likes just cause and red dead its nowhere near the best looking open world game
"The sad part is that its only going to get better." Do you think before you type? I swear, the people on this site all begin their posts with the same introductions. "In my opinion" "To be honest" "Truth be told" "The sad part is" "The truth is" "The fact of the matter is" Am I taking crazy pills?
Like Uncharted2, or Killzone2 & 3, devs generally add polish at the end of the development cycle. Which is why I said its only going to get better from here. When I say "SAD" I mean in regards to the old notion about open world games making sacrifices of quality that smaller scale games thrived in. Mainly it would be textures, character models, post processing, and lighting. Some have made strides with lighting, but not so much character models. Infamous 1 didn't look nearly as refined as this, and it still exposed the world to some very good textures & shaders on the scale of an open world game. The facts are that the previous game, much like Uncharted/killzone/lbp/mlb/mgs 4 raise the bar for the genre of gaming that they are in compared relatively to other games in their genre with Technology & Gameplay. In terms of PS3 exclusives, they generally all improve by launch. You're not taking crazy pills, you're just being a jackass.
"When I say "SAD" I mean in regards to the old notion about open world games making sacrifices of quality that smaller scale games thrived in." That doesn't make sense. And no, that's not why you said that. You said it because you've become accustomed to saying it or something like it as an opening introduction to your comments or posts. I hope that habit doesn't extend beyond the internet. You call me a jackass now, but my pointing out this behavior should be appreciated rather than scorned. It wasn't anything against you in particular. I've noticed the behavior in a lot of users on this site. The funny thing is <--- see that right there? I don't have to use that opening intro to my sentences. If you want to say something, just say it. It doesn't sound correct for someone to say, "The sad part is that it's only going to get better." Why would anyone be sad about something positive? What if scientists found a cure for cancer tomorrow? Would it make sense for me to say, "The sad part is that the price of the cure is only going to become less costly."? No, it's not appropriate. I just pointed out something for you. Instead of calling me a jackass, just say thanks and move on.
In the othe thread youre blathering about how Gears looks better than demon souls... In here you're blathering about me spending the time to explain to you exactly what I meant, to clarify things, and yet.. you're still crying. I imagine that if you hear someone say "man that was a sick car!" You come running with a first aid kit. Or do you get what it means? That some people speak in different ways than you do? That you're no better than anyone else, nor is it your job to point things out. You're entitled to your opinion, but do me a favor and don't waste replies on my commentary here.
You're right. Some people do have different ways of speaking. You happen to speak gibberish. The funny thing is (yes, I'm mocking you) you'll never get better because you're stubborn. It's not really funny, but I suppose you understand what I mean.
SOAD stands for system of a downer lol cheer up you crazy redneck :)
even if it was your standard straight forward action game it would still be a good looking game but the fact that its an open world game makes the game look a whole lot more impressive
Although I do like the original Cole, i'm guessing they wanted to change him was because he looks too generic. There is nothing "iconic" or different from him and X or Y pedestrian/enemies from another game. In fact if you look at Nathan Hale and Cole, they look a lot alike. Hale: http://www.gameguru.in/imag... Cole: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_m...
Cole is a ginger. I think that makes him stand out as a game character, since most characters have brown or black hair.
BTW, I really do like this new-old Cole a lot better. He looks better than the old Cole or the other new Cole. Plus, he looks close enough to the old Cole to give the game continuity.
...and I think that was the whole point. -fans couldn't really connect with that young kid look they had before.. I love that they listened to the fans and made the adjustment, I'm back on board with this being a day one buy... love the new cole or old cole much better... /it's not that big a deal but before I would have to wait to see if I could get back into it, but with the old cole back, I just feel like it's the same game I loved, crazy how big of a deal that was I know.. -but it's the little things that can make or break a game.. Don't forget to Check old cole out in-video, looks really good...( http://www.mikeappice.com/g... ) can't wait for this game, if it's anything near as good as the first one turned out to be, then we are in for a real treat when this comes out.. Should be another amazing ride... .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
I played Infamous few days ago .. I really loved that game, impressive story and fun gameplay, the only thing I didnt like was lack of colors , I played that game every day for about 2 hours. Infamous 2 looks INSANE , as a sandbox game it looks like CG to me..
I personally LOVED the graphics in the first inFamous. I can't really describe it, though I'll just say it was unique and for lack of a better term, shiny. I don't know why people seem to hate the old graphical style, it looked awesome to me.
...the graphics look REALLY nice for an open world game... and they’ll only get better until it comes out.
The production values coming out of Sony are actually getting better. At this rate Infamous 2 is going to be a bigger leap from the original in terms of production value then Uncharted 2 was from Uncharted. Hell, even that Resistance teaser was very well made. Sony's going Hollywood on us lol.
he looks generic (like in first game) he looks like he escaped from prison. Still day 1. remember KIDS this is my opinion
Both version would've worked for me. It's freakin' inFAMOUS2, I'm not playing it because the lead is cute or not. Or whatever the hell the whiners problems were.
Yeah, the only problem I had was with the voice, and even that I'm sure I'll get passed as soon as I start playing it. EDIT: Just saw the pics. I like the look and..... Is...... is that Shepard from Mass Effect? lol
people like to whine, that was pretty gay of the fanboys who whined about coles appearance.......
with the fact that they thought they had to change him...I never saw anybody saying they weren't buying I2 because of the boyband cole just that they preferred the old one...maybe people are using the word whine in the wrong context here. I mean...didnt cole just lose a loved one (even though she was an annoying b!tch) get betrayed by somebody close etc.....the new cole looked like he just jumped off a plane from a Caribbean resort with the only visable scaring being those tacky tats. *whine over* ;)
the sand is out of everyone's vaginas now?
I like the fact that the new Cole is back, but I don't necessarily think that outfit fits him. he doesn't seem right with a short-sleeve shirt on.
I disagree, the shirt suits him. It's the shoes, they don't go with the tracksuit bottoms.
Can the insanity end. have your vaginas stopped bleeding from all the sand in it? really you guys cried till the Devs went back on THEIR now you cry because his clothes dont fit his Look. grow up!
Looks good but I'm worried they took too many cues from Uncharted 2. I want a super hero game, not a military shooter disguised as an "adventure game". The only footage I've seen has military helicopters and crap in it. I want monsters and cool villains and stuff. I've blown up enough helicopters in other games to last me a lifetime. Let's hope it's not filled with generic army dudes.
Can they at least add hair Still Day 1
This now he looks out of place.
sandy vaginas disagree, because people don't grow hair./s Cole has to look like a mongoloid cause the gamers were gettin jealous of his natural good looks.
I liked the older "new cole", however this is a good change to please the ones who liked the old one.
SONY TAKING OVER 2011 AND PS3 HAS ALREADY TAKEN OVER N4G FOR A WHILE NOW(A GOOD THING I MIGHT ADD).
I didn't mind the longer hair so much as the silly clothes they put him in. He looked like a Metro failure I'm glad they toned him down a bit. Still not sure about the Tuning fork lol aside from looking a little silly, but I don't really have a problem with it. The main character looks fine now lets get on with the development of the game with a solid story and fun game play mechanics ;)
I'm very impressed. I haven't felt this way since Uncharted 2 was shown at E3 2009.
That's more like it. Infinitely better.
i dunno about the new look, but the monsters are f*cking sweet
Yeah, he could be Cole after a year. All the harm from the explosion gone and made stronger. Works for me.
Man, I am a happy PS3 owner today. They are going to further blow our minds with JRPGs and the like at TGS.
He still looks way different that he did in the first game. The hair wasn't the bad part it was the new voice and face. Now he's all fucked up. How can someone say Sucker Punch listens to their fans when not everyone wants the same thing. They might as well just do what they think is best. Whatever, though it's the gameplay that matters and I can't wait to play it.
im just happy with this game, i dont care what he looks like. :D
Wow, the models are 10x more detailed than in inFamous 1. o.o http://www.mikeappice.com/g... If that's in-game.......Wow....... Look at his facial expression! He looks so BA. Wow, and look at this http://www.mikeappice.com/g... The enemy looks so detailed! Look at his muscles! O.O
I'm glad Sucker Punch stayed with this look of Cole...the other Cole they showed looked too similar to Nathan Drake IMO...I think they might've initially thought: "Considering Uncharted 2's success, if we make Cole look more like Nathan, maybe Cole's new look will be able to connect more with fans of Drake (more sales)". The other look they showed was just way too different from how he looked in the first game and the drastic overhaul in appearance made him seem more like a new lead character to me. Not sure when it's coming out, but I hope it's around the same time frame as the first Infamous...hopefully no later than August 2011.
The new cole looks way better then the old cole and this cole. This cole actually looks OLD
Looks like Kevin Love lol
To my untrained eye it looks like all they did was get rid of those shocking jeans, changed his T-shirt and hit him with a ugly stick. Not too much different really. It's the voice acting as a few others have mentioned that grinds my gears. Why change that? That was one of the things that sold the whole good/evil part of the first game for me. Maybe i'm being a bit precious but the new threads, ok cool i'll go with it, But at least make him sound like a Wolverine knock off again. That is all.
Well he doesn't look all that bad. He at least looks playable. I would have been quite happy with the 'Beta Cole' (That is what I will refer to the old design now) This Cole kinda looks like a guy from my old school.
He looks cool just like this. Having played the first one, I sure feel that this design (closer to the first game one) is better.
Look its Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell Double Agent. /jk, but they do look alike a little.
really guys ?? this is what u guys prefer ? this cole looks too old lol i prefer the old new cole... he looked like he had personality and would be a character that the player would connect with as you go through the story... idk why sucker punch listened to the fans... they should have just followed their vision and create the game they wanted to... IDK not feeling the new design but f**k ill play what im given with but other than the "old" dirty look the game will kick ass and will certainly be GOTY 2011 if Uncharted 3 isnt release that is.
I'm not happy with the butt ugly protagonist. He looks like before but skinnier. The drake look alike was better
Would be a Good Fight thats for sure.
look better, i mean what most people fail or ignore to realize for some odd reason is, that a big part of infamous was and has always been the karma system. If you look at flyers and posters you will always see the dark cole with red electricity and pale skin post up like a convict straight out of prison. Or simply looking like one of batman's villains straight out of arkhum asylum, you know bad ass. Now..had they kept the colorful drake like version than that in my opinion would have kill the feel of the karma system because just looking at the character you wouldn't get that vibe. lol Imagine kratos looking like drake and a smile on him? lol that would scream a desperate attempt to grasp on another games success and ruined that franchise a long with it. If it ain't broken don't fix it plain and simple. And i find nothing wrong with his voice either, heck im afraid this new actor will sound like some pop celeb, now that would just make me wanna mute the damn thing for sure. And those uncharted like explosions and cinematics got to go, keep it like the original comic book fashion please. Every ip should be its own, creativity is a crucial thing and is something that is fading away as money and big corporations get involve. out of topic: Sony thus far has impress me with their offerings, the diversity is good enough to attract many different types of gamers. Move im sure will be a success just as long as they push it aggressively with both support and ads like they did bluray same thing. 3D gaming? personally i think its a sure thing. I mean just look at how aggressively they are pushing this tech with their biggest and third party's titles. Resident evil 5: gold edition, heavy rain, killzone 3, dead space 2, little big planet 2 ect all these games support move. My prediction for the remainder and the inevitable? Dead or alive 5 on ps3 Final fantasy versus 13 shown at tgs EA and Valve to finally announce Left4dead for the ps3. A new form of psp shown or talked about at tgs. 6 new street fighter characters for super street fighter 4 as DLC. Cross Voice chat will arrive sometime next year. That's what i see happening inevitably. As for my wishes, Syphon filter ps3 is still due Sony and a legend of dragoon as well though a wild arms or dark cloud wouldn't hurt either. And i still want my Getaway and a revival of this baby http://www.youtube.com/watc...
we never got a chance to see how the old new cole would look ???
These games like yesterday.. http://www.youtube.com/watc... getaway 3 http://www.youtube.com/watc... 8days http://www.youtube.com/watc...
looks a lot more like Infamous1's cole. Even though I liked the old new cole, seeing the new old cole brings a smile to my face.
idk this character model seems so out of placed to me
He looks good but I'm still not feeling those pants too much. But is his shirt a dirty white color or yellow? On the IGN article it says he's "back in yellow and black" but that really looks like a dirty white shirt to me..
the orginal cole was the best this one is better than the douche cole
did anyone else read it as "Cole Is Black And Better Than Ever?"
the physics in infamous were frigging fantastic better than anything on any platform, electricity had such a fantastic organic feel to it frigging loved that game so much.
tbh old cole was cool, old new cole was okay, and this is cool again. but meh the game aint gonna change that much
