Cool story - cheap and effective. It's better for Sucker Punch than to go the XIII route and spend million buck on cutscenes.
 
Thanks I guess, although it is my 20th or so. That 0 is just so tempting.

EDIT: Haha, I'm kind of glad, I already have the quest but couldn't resist when I saw "Add the first comment", congrats.

They look great but I was hoping for all in-game cutscenes this time with improved animation
 
Oh Well

I love this game

Posted by PeasForFees

The voice is better than their original "new" Cole.

Man, new new Cole sounds like he's about 50 years old.

hilarious what these fucktards did.  redesigned Cole..everyone said that looks like shit...so they changed it back, scared, and said "duuh herrrrrrrrrrr that was just a placeholder duuuuuuuuuuuuuuur"
 
whatever..
 
good to see them going the right route though lol.

You missed the ending, there was naked ladies.
Posted by Alphazero

I'm just playing the first Infamous now. It's awesome. It's the game I wished I was playing when I was playing Crackdown. Thumbs up for the sequel.

@Landon:   I know eh, and I can't believe the Half Life 3 release date was in there too.  Valve is sure liking sony these days.

Sign me up.

I like new old Cole's T-shirt better than old new Cole's.

Posted by Bonsai

These were one of my favorite parts of the first game. 
 
It's just such a cool style.

And they all looked like the  old-new Cole. It was great.

They never said it was a place holder, they said it was a WIP before they ever changed anything, and that it could change throughout development. People didn't like it, so they changed it. They weren't trying to deny anything.

I loved the look of the cutscenes in the original, glad they are coming back.
Also, I don't really care all too much about how Cole looks.

Posted by jkz

I want old-new Cole back! *Sob*

Posted by Kyle

Awesome. Really glad to see they're keeping this style of cutscene in the game. That's a big part of what defined the original Infamous to me.
 
Also, I really like the new-old Cole voice. I'm glad Suckerpunch responded to the fan reaction to the redesign of the character.

Posted by FuzzYLemoN

I wonder how pissed off the artist was when they were going through all those Cole redesigns.

Posted by Jash530

The voice is probably the biggest improvement 

Posted by pastabot

The new voice actor sounds good. At least he tried to match the original Cole. The look is good too, back to Cole classic.  Can't get enough of the comic-style cutscenes. Can't wait!

Posted by SnakeEyes327

Yep, still hate the look for this redesign.

Posted by roughplague
@FuzzYLemoN: 
you're an artist, you draw till it looks right, you don't even know how many redesigns and redrawings and tons of beautiful art that is scrapped because of redesigns, it's part of the job, so I don't think they be pissed.
I thought they could've kept some nice elements from the previous design tho, this guy looks a little too 1st game esc.
but I didn't have a problem with the 1st game's design of cole either, so I could care less.

This type of production for a game makes me feel like it's cheaply made, and I have a total lack of interest in it because of it.  Games can be fun, but I play most games for their story, and when it's so cheaply presented as it was in the first Infamous, I didn't care about what was happening.  
 
I don't read comics, and these graphic/visual comics are not any more appealing to me than a real comic book. I don't own a HDTV to look at high res comic books on my screen. 

Posted by 02sfraser

I loved the comic style cinematics so I welcome them back. Can't wait for this game.

Posted by Quacktastic

I still think they should have went with their original intentions and just let the internet be it's reactionary self, but that doesn't matter in the long run.  I'm sure they are making a good game.

I don't know about this new voice, he sounds a bit too old. I'm sure I'll get used to it after I play for a while.

Stylized and "cheap" are in two entirely different categories. Your statements are also incredibly insulting to artists as well.
 
If you don't like comics, maybe steer clear of products heavily influenced by and pay homage to comics. Food for thought
 
And by the way, I'm a big fan of looking at high res 2D animation and artwork on my HDTV, so to each his own.
Posted by JoelTGM

oh yeah Infamous 2, can't wait.  I'm glad he actually looks like Cole now.

Posted by tourgen

love the animated comic book art style
I hope the new game has a few different locations besides bombed out city and sewers.

Posted by Undeadpool

Sweeeeet! I loved that art style and I'm happy to see Cole has rid himself of his genero-tribal ink. It's ok for a character to change their look, but that was a little too much. If they'd been tattoos that actually reflect his character, that would've been one thing but "tribal" just looked like he turned 18 and couldn't think of a real design.

Posted by gunningyoudown

2 things  
1. i liked the original voice actor (aka the first one not the "new" cole one) and 
2. Cole once again you fuck up another city

Posted by Andorski

So new Cole looked better, but looked nothing like the old Cole, thus cheapening the overall story-arc going from inFamous 1 to 2.  Problem is that the inFamous storyline so far is inbetween mediocre to average, so many they should have stuck with the new Cole and say, "fuck it, the game's cool because you have crazy super powers in an open world game." 
 
tl;dr - Gamers can never be happy.

Posted by xeronius1

Can't wait. Infamous was one of my favorite games in the last couple years and one of the only games I have ever beat and then immediately begun a new save file on.

Posted by sizu

God I can't wait to play this. 
 
Sure infamous had flaws, but it was a damn fine game.  And I really enjoyed it.

Posted by Example1013
@Andorski: You act like gamers are a unified group. I'd say "you can't please everyone" is a more fitting phrase. I know I'm certainly EXTREMELY pleased that they went back to a more old-Cole look. I'd also want the original VA, but if that's not going to happen, I won't be as upset as if the new-cole look had been kept, because voices are trickier. 
 
@Ockman: I second AgentOHarah. If you don't like comic books, don't play a comic-book-style game. I loved the art style of Infamous, and I'm glad they're keeping it. It was part of the experience.
Posted by EXCellR8

hopefully the ramp up the graphics a tad... first game looked a bit rough but it was still great. def looking forward to picking this up!

A game without a story tying the experience together just doesn't interest me.  Even if the story is no good, I can still get immersed in it.  A lack of consistency, even in something as small as Cole's look, would only hurt the game for people like me...
Posted by LOZZAT

I really like this new new new Cole, whichever new Cole it actually is, the voice is great! And he looks, pretty much just like Cole did in the first game, which is fine by me. Can they just keep him the same now? :D

Posted by samcotts

As some have stated before me, new voice with old Cole design sucks. I loved the first, but I just can't get hyped for this.

Edited by Zapbrader

The first game had great writing when it came to Cole's narrating, and this sounds about on the same level. I can't wait!

Posted by smashforge
FACT: Martin Sheen recorded Cole's voice after filming Apocalypse Now and placed them in a time capsule to be used for Infamous 2.
Posted by MiniPato

I don't know why people are complaining. As far as I know "new" Cole looks and sounds just like old Cole minus the messenger bag and jacket. Maybe it's cause I haven't played Infamous 1 in months, but I really can't tell the difference. I never did like Cole's overly raspy voice in Infamous 1 since the Snake voice was played out by the time it was released. I like that they toned it down.
 
And just to mention, I'm glad they kept Cole buzzed/bald. If he had hair it should be constantly standing up.

Posted by pubbles

I'm on the very last level of the first game, and I don't feel like finishing it. 
 
I guess I should just for the sake of finishing. I'm mixed on this game... 

Posted by MeatSim

It sounds like Cole is now a old man.
