So Just Who is The Beast in Infamous 2?
This game will keep me playing all summer long…
yah same here
How bout those retards who say "a real gamer has all consoles"........nah your a loser lmao Ps3 only for me.
Having all the consoles is great...because it includes having a PS3. The reasons for owning a 360 are dying down in 2011 for me personally. But, I`m still glad I have in hanging around just in case (plus ME1 is great and I don`t game on the PC). 2007 - 2010 was great to own both PS3 and 360. There is NO denying that. 2011 not so much. Unless Kinect does something that literally blows my mind (not Tech Demos), I won`t be buying it anytime soon. OT: Suckerpunch is one my favorite devs and Infamous 2 looks like a game that`s made for me.
Who else would it be? *wink*
i say it was the guy who got ''killed'' when you open the ray sphere i think john was his name?
Thats interesting but doubtfull really, the guy got vaporized, aside what reason could he have to destroy the world? perhaps cole but not the world. And that is if you go by the bad ending not the good one.
John was vaporized, but you never know. I think Moya works for the Beast. Keeping an eye on Cole's whereabouts all the time.
I got the impression that the beast wasn't too into thinking, which would have been required for the Beast to employ Moya. She probably worked for Kessler, for the reason you gave. And she was helping him groom Cole for his fight with the beast. If I'm right, it gives Moya's communications with Cole a whole new meaning.
Dude you got to be like Dr Manhatan to go back from that kind of dmg, pretty doubtfull that electricity is going to have any effect on that kind of power. Well its true about moya, we dont know who she worked for, but she wanted to find jhon and he turned on her, why would a boss turn on his employee??
"why would a boss turn on his employee??" - Ask Kotick!
john can come back ..he was vaporized from COLE point of view but maybe instead he got wrapped some place ? some other dimension ? time plane ? we already know that time travel is possible in infamous universe some lots are possible , really ( if they want to bring him back ) i'd rather get another explanation for the beast ( and i can't wait to find out )
Or maybe it's a beast? like, a giant... beast... thing? xD I actually do kind of think that it will be a large titan type of a thing. Hey you never know. xD
quick question kind of dumb but what was kesslers power? was he stronger then cole?
Kessler could teleport (or just move really fast), he could cause earthquakes, summon enemies, shoot beams of electricity, and throw proximity explosives.
Like Cole he has electric powers but they are fully developed,he can also tele-transport and move at very high speeds.
I think you havent finished the game, so not to spoil much kesslers by default will always be stronger than cole. And i mean ALWAYS.
Me and my friends all believe it is John as he was a very developed character in inFamous 1.
thank you focker420 wow if cole had those powers my god
have you finished the game yet?? If so you'll know why I'm smiling... ;) For those that want to play InFamous 2, you MUST play the original first. All the way to the finish, it'll make your experience with InFamous 2 all the more epic. Its not just about the awesome gameplay, the story is very well done and completely worth your time
Sucker Pucnch is one my favorite devs been playing Sly Copper Collection more then Gt5 which is crazy lol
Faceplam at myself LMAO it's Cooper not Copper lol.
At least you corrected your mistake so many don't on N4g.
It's evil Cole lol.
That makes sense though bro. Evil Cole could've progressed with his powers faster than good cole so EC got time travel fast and traveled to GC's timeline and now he's the beast.
Too bad there's only one Cole...rofl. It could happen if there were a timeline for every possible action Cole preforms, but then, there would be an infinite amount of possibilities. With the way the first game ended, we were left with the impression that there is one true timeline, that may however, be altered. On second thought, I don't even remember the ending all that well, so I might be missing something. :/
Theres only one Cole. Good or evil, the Beast is coming after him either way.
There were two endings though, im talking about the two different cole's meeting up and the bad ending cole becoming the beast.
<SPOILERS> : : : : : Just as Kessler was the "good" Cole from the future, so must an "evil" Cole exist due to the events that transpired. He explains an alternate future that he is trying to prevent, but going back in time would have also split the timeline for yet another outcome that is unavoidable...he even stated that his intent was to travel back in time to prepare the player Cole for this event, but inadvertently let the Beast out in to this time. : : : : : </SPOILERS> Rather predictable, but to be expected...it is a comic-inspired story after all.
Well I think that the Beast is actually a clone of Cole created by the army thanks to Moya. Although it's just a theory.
If you split the timeline it's not the same as changing the future. If the beast was going to be Cole then it would have to be a Parallel Universe. Kessler travelling back in time means Cole couldn't be the beast.
SPOILER WARNING Very predictable. I highly doubt Sucker Punch would do that. They were all about surprises in the original. I remember a ton of shocking plot twists. I doubt they'll take the easy way out on the Beast. Plus we've already faced one Cole before, I highly doubt we'll face another. There also has to be a connection to all of the new monsters. These aren't just corrupted people like in the original, they are actually beasts (for lack of a better term).
i agree we already have the whole ( another cole thing going on ) i doubt we'll get the same twist twice ... it's REALLY unlikely ...
Great year for SONY All GOTYs competitors this year are SONY's exclusive beside Zelda,ME3,The Last Story and Batman:AC
I hope its John. I dont want a huge mindf*** game this time. Evil Cole kind of just seems like a ceap way out IMO.
The beast is the cell processor, lol.
The reason why its not John is because the Beast existed in Kesslers time-line too, who created the Beast then how did John gain his powers? There was no ray sphere vaporization then(that we know of). If John really did turn into the Beast why not just kill John? Kessler went back in time, he had a long time to figure it out and hes also the one who took over the ray sphere project..the orb that apparently gave birth to the Beast. Its probably some unnamed guy who we know nothing about
That logic is sound, came to the same conclusion myself.
the ray sphere is a device that unlock/amplify your powers if you have them ( at the cost of other's life force ). it's unknow if the ray sphere existed in the original timeline but it's same to asumes it exists too . It's stated that keslers accelerated the develloppement of the ray sphere ( thank to his powers ) it was probably a goal that the organisation had all along but reached LATER ( original timeline ) it would explain that john being undercover still tries to destroy IT either way and end sucked up by it . IMO the ray sphere exist in both timelines but is given to cole earlier in infamous 1 , kesler probably get it after moya and/or zeke dies and that would explain the time trip either way the beast identity CAN'T be an unmanned guy , it's either someone we know or someone introduced in infamous 2 . the beast is supposed to be THE MAIN ennemy cole has to beat .. they have to give it some serious background
The beast could just be someone we don't know at all. Or someone really unexpected like Cole's girlfriend.
Evil cole makes more sense...
I think the beast is Coles darker self from the future,which haunts him. By the way Anybody looking forward to the DCcomics prequel of inFAMOUS2
all good theories I believe but there were questions I think still needed to be answered. Moya is nowhere to be found, and so far Sucker Punch hasn't told us if she even has anything to do in this next installment. further more John wasn't very developed, he pretty much was a character they killed off in the last arc of inFAMOUS! They really didn't explain his significance to the plot. I'd like them to take time to better introduce the main characters. Still this game is gonna be sick. What's gonna be great is the comics from DC that is going to fill in the story between I1 and I2.:-) it, hands down, was the best new IP of 2009!
It's Alex Mercer from Prototype....... What an interesting fight that would be.....
you guys are all creating good theories here....can't wait for this game, Sucker Punch really delivered on a great storyline for this game, but I have to say I think its a shell of Kessler's former self, but who knows (I also think Moya is a important puzzle piece to this too), I don't want to read any more theories, I'll just wait for the game to come out!
I see a lot of great theories in here, but I'm inclined to believe like some that "The Beast" is indeed a Dark Cole from an Alternate/Future Time, perhaps something happened in his past that turned him dark and he too teleported back in time. This time, maybe he decided to just destroy everything to ease the pain he might be experiencing. Who knows, the possibilities are quite broad right now. Can't wait to see how it plays out in inFamous 2!
i bet its cole who went the other path and became evil
Not likely. Remember Kessler's disappointment when 'good' Cole destroyed the Ray Sphere. And his... pride when 'evil' Cole activated it? The evil version of future Cole is Kessler. Besides, the future Cole theory is too popular. Not sure Sucker Punch would go there again.
I didn't even realise it was supposed to be up for speculation, I just always assumed (as others have said) that it was the Cole you create if you go the evil path. Maybe my memory is playing tricks but when I played through as a good guy I thought I saw a red electric'd up Cole comic panel when Kessler was talking about the Beast. Either way from the description I figured it was a case of Cole eventually acquiring the ability to travel from dimension to dimension and evil Cole travelling through them all destroying whatever he found. I didn't even think it might have been supposed to be anything else. edit - ah, should've read the article before commenting. they show the panel I meant. I say that's clearly evil Cole. Alternative dimensions and so on.
There are a few good theories here, and some sound arguments to support those theories. I don't think the Beast is yet another future version of Cole, just because it would be too predictable. It just makes too much sense. I'm thinking the Beast will be another crazy twist. It can't be Zeke. When he turned on the Ray Sphere, nothing happened. He's not a "conduit," whatever that means. The pictures of the Beast had it as being very much male, which rules out Sasha, Moya and Trish. Trish is doubly impossible because of her strong desire to do good. The beast is WAY too evil to be Trish. Alden is a possibility, it seems unlikely though, because of his advanced age when InFamous 1 began. The beast looks to be about Cole's age, or Kessler's at the oldest. Kessler's whole purpose in going back in time in the first place was to prepare 'himself' to fight the Beast, as opposed to running, as he did originally. Kessler isn't the Beast. The John idea is a good one. A Dr. Manhattan style regeneration could explain it. I'm thinking it's someone that Kessler, in a way, created, along a similar line to Spider-Man and Venom feeling responsible for Carnage. Kessler feels it's HIS duty to face the Beast. He ran away and lost everything, so he went back in time to prepare himself to face the Beast. It could also just be an Uber-Villain, analogous to Sauron.
I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks that the Beast is John. SPOILERS: When the Ray Sphere is activated, Cole says that John was vaporized, but how does he know for sure? We already know that John was also a Conduit (his Dead Drops talk about all the experiments done on him), and the Ray Sphere affected Conduits differently than they affect "regular people." It's very possible that the Sphere transported John somewhere else, and when he awakes, he has gone quite mad, and only remembers one face: Cole McGrath. John's abilities were amplified by the activation of the Ray Sphere, and he uses his abilities to hunt down Cole, kicking his ass, and sending him to New Marais. Cole doesn't even have to RECOGNIZE John, as he was transformed by the explosion. John doesn't remember much of who he was before, only that Cole was responsible for his "death." He is single minded in his drive to kill Cole, and he won't let anything or anyone get in his way. I can see the Beast slowly regaining his sanity, but never losing his desire to destroy Cole. The ending of the game could be really cool depending on your path. If you are Good Cole, maybe you can defeat the Beast and save John's soul/turn him back to normal. If you are Evil Cole, you whoop the Beast's ass and absorb his powers, becoming the Beast, yourself. lol. The reason why I think the John theory works is because, in Kessler's time, the Beast appeared, laying waste to Kessler. Maybe the Beast was John in the future as well, caused by Kessler's incessant experimenting on him. That John was a very different person to the John Cole met in the past. HOWEVER, by going back in time and speeding up Cole's transformation, he set in motion events that still lead to the creation of the Beast, but in a different way than before. Hence, the Beast showing up sooner than expected in inFAMOUS 2, and beating Cole's ass./END SPOILERS. I think it'd be pretty cool. Either way, inFAMOUS 2 is my most anticipated game of this year, just like inFAMOUS 1 was my most anticipated game of 2009. I mean, i KNEW Uncharted 2 was going to be awesome, but I had NO IDEA how awesome inFAMOUS was going to be, with it being a new IP, and therefore more exciting. This year, I KNOW Uncharted 3 is going to be amazing, and yeah, I know inFAMOUS 2 is going to be amazing also, but my excitement level for inFAMOUS 2 is higher. Probably because it comes out sooner than Uncharted 3, lol.
Cole's father dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnnnn /s
It's going to be Cole. There is no way it couldn't be. If you really payed attention to the story you already know it's Cole. He's the only one with powers. He always had them no matter the time line. Pure Good can't exist without Pure Evil. I mean for Christ sake it even looks like Cole.
I think FigBoy is completly right and even if he isn't i like that idea haha
