Don't believe the hype says Play. The supposed new character design for Cole MacGrath is not real and it can prove it.
Lol, predictable IGN, making up false rumours and error-riddled previews just to make a few hits. Too bad though, not really digging the new Cole, neither did i like the original. This one seemed to be a balanced combination of the two. Oh well, as long as the game is fun, his face can look like a pair of tits on a bull and I wouldnt complain.
At comic-con SP revealed that they didn’t make a final decision on character design, the original Cole had a forgettable face, but this rumored design has character in it. It would be great if they made a character customization feature like the outfits in RDR. That way anyone can customize Cole to his liking, bald or not, facial hair, shirtless with full body tattoos (maybe one like Kratos) and punk shorts, look like as a man in black…
"Lol, predictable IGN, making up false rumours and error-riddled previews just to make a few hits" Actually, the NeoGaf kiddies/trolls made this one up. You can't blame other sites for writing articles about the rumor.
Accept this article is complete speculation and IGN claims to have been told this by Sucker Punch. The entire point of this article is to defend the current Cole against what is what the author call a "vocal minority." "If inFamous 2 winds up being worse for all this shouting and screaming you’ll only have yourselves to blame." WTF is he talking about? I want Cole to stay bald (or whatever) and this author thinks it's going to ruin the game? How lame is that. I can understand that their is a disagreement over the preferred character design but it is mental leap for you to go form character design to entire game quality. It seem childish and entirely unthoughtful.
people didnt like the first cole and people dont like the new cole personally the new cole would look better in this new setting old cole being the angry bastard he is would not really fit at all
if you listen to the developers videos, they said now since they have a better engine and understanding of the ps3 power, they want to try new things, one of them happens to be from bald to david beckham hair. next they said the reason to change the voice was because the previous one was too deep and something a villain would sound like, cole is suppose to be a smart ass kind of guy, so they gave him a smart ass voice actor. he's a normal guy that has lighting ability. it not a natural born super hero.all i'm trying to say is, let the developer a try, if it a failure so be it.
I'm one of the few people that actually doesnt give a [email protected] about the new design for Cole it doesnt bother me in the slightest, if they keep the new design thats fine if they change back to the old one thats also fine but these are only cosmetic changes, there not gonna affect the gameplay and in case some of you have forgotten the gameplay was the biggest star of the 1st Infamous not the appearence of Cole.
I can probably deal with any design for the new Cole (even if I like the original as it is), but I hate his new voice actor. I don't want hear that whiny and smug voice every time I do something in the game.
No sh!t. That's David Beckham.
I thought he looked like Beckham in the original.
I swear to god, Zeke better stop saying "cashola" in this next game or I'll sucker punch Sucker Punch.
As long as Sucker Punch gets your cashola . . . oh shi-
it's not like you're gonna have $ex with him...
Excellent point. I honestly couldn't have made a better point than that.
Sigh enough with the Cole Articles. We will see when they decide to show us
it makes sense and i too had no problem with the design
Well I'm back to not buying this game then.
LMFAOOOO because of a simple design change ? Some fan you are to the franchise LOL.
Well, to be fair, it's not really inFamous if you can't even recognize the character anymore. Would you like MGS or GoW if the characters were redesigned to some effeminate girly-men type characters? You would probably be pissed. The people that actually want the new Cole are the people who didn't play the first game, or didn't truly appreciate how great the first game was. True fans of the franchise actually liked the original character. He wasn't some annoying, teen-aged, wisecracking happy-go-lucky jackass like you see in a lot of today's games. He was an average, pessimistic guy. That's why people liked him, because they could relate to him. I do admit though, not buying the game just because of that, when it's almost certain that there will be a choice (ala DLC) who you get to play as, is going a little to far. When I read about the new Cole, all of my hype for the game was lost, but I was still going to purchase it, provided it had reviews on par with or greater than the original.
I played the first game and I prefer the new Cole. So...... You saying that is completely wrong. Also how is he girly ? If I remember correctly all I been seeing is some childish comments how he is a pretty boy is looks gay blah blah blah. Why is people so bent on him being pretty LOL ? When was being a attractive super hero wrong ? SORRY me and the Old Cole from infamous could never relate on anything. He was miserable and cranky. Maybe thats why people can relate to him on N4G because to me a lot of people on this site is miserable lol.
You may have played the first one, but you obviously didn't truly appreciate how great it was. "You saying that is completely wrong." - No, I'm saying that they should not piss off their true fans, the ones who actually appreciated the first game. If they wanted to target a certain demographic, then they should have done it with the first game. "SORRY me and the Old Cole from infamous could never relate on anything. He was miserable and cranky. Maybe thats why people can relate to him on N4G because to me a lot of people on this site is miserable lol." - Yeah, a lot of people are generally cranky, and not completely happy with their lives. That's why Cole related to those of us who weren't pampered and spoiled throughout our lives. He relates to the normal people, to the average people, which is what his character was, and should be still. "Also how is he girly ? If I remember correctly all I been seeing is some childish comments how he is a pretty boy is looks gay blah blah blah." - Effeminate, girly, whatever. He looks like some abercombie and fitch model. "When was being a attractive super hero wrong?" - Since they started doing it in the majority of media today, which generally sucks. They hire attractive idiots who know nothing about what they're presenting/acting/selling, etc., and it sucks 90% of the time, and since only a very small minority can relate to attractive people. I want to see NORMAL people in my game. Seeing an attractive person in a game just isn't believable, since (the majority)attractive people have everything handed to them (socially, and most of the time, financially), it's hard to relate or even give a sh*t about somebody who could just go home and leave whatever adventure he was on and still be well off.
Im laughing at you saying how I didn't appreciate the game because I don't agree. Listen dude all because I agree that the new design is better in my opinion doesn't mean I didn't appreciate the game. Its one of my favorite games of all time. LMAO please don't use your opinion as a factual reference to what everybody feels or thinks. Also pampered and spoil um how can you blame someone because their parents have money ? Seem like a bit of jealousy in my opinion and envy. Be happy with what you got and count your blessings because there is always someone out there who has it way worse then you. I have nothing to be miserable about. I have a nice girlfriend amazing friends and a bright future That I worked for and earned. You cannot be mad a child is pampered that parent probably worked hard and wants to give their child the best they can offer. Simple as that. You seem to judge to much and it blinds your judgement a lot in my opinion.
"Im laughing at you saying how I didn't appreciate the game because I don't agree." Well obviously you don't, since I see you complaining about the old cole in almost every single article I see you on related to it. I loved everything about the game, the story, the character, the unique graphical style, the theme, just everything. It's my favorite sandbox game, and one of my favorite games of all time. "LMAO please don't use your opinion as a factual reference to what everybody feels or thinks." - It is a fact that you didn't appreciate the game as much as the hardcore fans, because you obviously didn't like the first character. You may appreciate the gameplay and fun aspects of it, but it doesn't seem you gave a crap about the story or the character, hence the reason why you think it's okay to completely erase what Cole McGraph is. "Also pampered and spoil um how can you blame someone because their parents have money ?" - I'm not blaming them, I'm just saying they're not interesting or believable. Just imagine some ditzy blonde like Jessica Simpson or Paris Hilton. Can you honestly say you would be interested in a story about them? Can you honestly say you would feel sorry for them if a tragedy had befallen them, but they still had all their money/power/looks? I sure as hell wouldn't. Just as I wouldn't care about the new cole. He looks like an abercombie and fitch model, so he is already blessed with being attractive, so why would you want him to be over spoiled with unlimited power as well? I would rather have some guy down on his luck who does not have a lot in life be given that power, someone who actually deserves to be given that power, not some idiotic, wisecracking handsome jackass saying "Duuuuddde, did you totally just see that shit I blew up? That was AWESOME.", some rich/attractive kid that has been given EVEN MORE. That's not interesting or relatable to me in the slightest. I want to see some average joe (or worse off character) finally catch a break in his life.
Vickers500 everything you said is a opinion like I said before. You don't know me and you don't know how I feel when I played the game. Everything you listed is what is interesting to you and only yourself. You don't speak for everyone else which is why I'm saying your opinion is not a FACT. Honestly we barely knew anything about Cole past except he was a delivery boy etc. When did I not say that I didn't give a crap about the story ? Please tell me... oh thats right you can't because I never said that. Face it Vickers500 if someone does not agree with your point of view they are not hardcore fans. Please I'm buying this game regardless of what Cole design they have unlike the so called "hardcore fans" the same ones who blast sucker punch and some of which who said they was not gonna buy the game unless they changed Cole back. Really hardcore fans say nonsense like that lol ? Listen you are attractive because of Genetics. Simple as that some people are attractive to society standards and some people are not. That is life get over it. Some people are Rich some are not that is life get over it. Also its a game don't take it to seriously. I don't wish any harm on anybody. Thats bad karma. Also like I said before you judge people to much and it clouds your judgement. Your opinion is not a fact.
somehow i doubt you ever planned on buying it
congrat on missing out a great game, your not going to play the game because of the new look?? wow.
like that picture. (funny i just watched the video where that pic was shown). it looks like a spit between the old and new. I just ask if they do change it. they make it coherent with the story and not "oh his face looks different cause it just does". I'd say most people identify cole as the bald guy, though people can grow their hair. including cole
most people know every single character in shooters as some bald guy. they are the same guy with different time lines and ages. the youngest version is star killer, then theres cole as a 25 year old, then the dude from red faction, then nathan hale of resistance 1 and 2, then.....well basically everyone this gen lol. i thinkk the new one wud make him atleast stand out.
the problem is the bald guy with the gruff voice and the slightly rough face is cole mcgrath as we know him. its not just the bald but the sum of all his parts that made\make cole. NO matter how much better or stand out he is a change is still jarring when you played a whole previous game and watched him develop as that character.
@tyrex I think his new voice is more jarring than the new look for Cole. It does not contain any of the seriousness of the Cole we once knew. The voice they are using now makes him sound like a young brash kid who just got his powers, not someone who has come understand what he is capable of or the losses that he has experienced. Frankly, his new voice is just annoying.
Forget about the orginal Cole, he is not gonna be there, that's a given. The new one is probably gonna be the one we saw already.
LOL! i love the new look. it looks great. and i'm praying the IGN rumor doesnt come true. because i want the developers to take the game in the direction they wanted it to be. Infamous is Son's and Sucker Punch's baby.
