Game Informer has revealed the game featured on the cover of its July issue. Recognize the face underneath that beard-and-goatee combo? 
 

 Same electricity, new beard.
 Same electricity, new beard.
Why, it's our favorite video game electric man, Cole MacGrath. Yes, inFamous 2 is officially a real video game, and the magazine will feature a ten page story on the new exploits of Cole. While firm details on the game are still unknown, Game Informer teases that inFamous 2 will feature "a new city, new powers, and a powerful new foe." I imagine you won't have to wait too much longer for more information on inFamous 2; I hear there's a thing happening. 
 
Adding a new villain to the series is kind of a shame, though. I thought I did a pretty good job menacing Cole last time around. 
 
What do you folks want to see in Cole's new adventure? What new takes on "electricity-but-really-it's-a-gun" would you like to see realized in this game? And how do you feel about the facial hair?

That is not my bro Cole. That'd be someone else. I'm interested what the details of the story is, since that's why I played inFamous so much.

It's been said above, but I'll say it again - that doesn't look anything like Cole. Is there any released information confirming it is Cole?

Cole's now a pro-skateboarder.
 
Seriously though, I dunno why they've made him look even more generic - but the gameplay in the original was absolutely solid, and I'm expecting more of the same here.

The subtitle "Electric Boogaloo" never felt more appropriate. Think about it Sucker Punch.

Kinda maybe looks like the French Quarter? New Orleans? Regardless, I'd love to see some more color and life in the new city.
 
Also, that doesn't really look like Cole.

Suggestions for new superpowers?  Static cling and door handle shocks.  He'll be the dastardly prankster of the superhuman world.

Okay look at the image of Cole, and then glance to your right at the image of Michael Thorton.
 
Also: Why are we still following Cole instead of some new dude with different powers?

And like Batman, Cole's police contacts should have a light they can shine when they need him, except instead of a bat, they use the symbol of the shocker.  Two in the pink, one in the stink, baby.

I loved inFAMOUS and announcement of a sequel is one of the best things that happened to me this year.


Though it would be hard to make artwork that would suck MORE than this piece of shit cover.

That exactly. I never finished the game because of that, to be honest I didn't really like it. I just couldn't be fucked with it, I did play it like almost a year after its release though. I preferred Prototype to it.

Cole's look doesn't sit too well for me, but it's promotional stuff, so whatever. One thing that does concern me is the news from a while ago about how there would be a new VA for Cole in this game. That would be most unfortunate.

Excited about the game but DAAANG that's some bad artwork.
(...not bad for a hobbiest, but bad for a big release magazine cover)
 
I'm a tiny bit let down tho. I knew it wouldn't happen, but I was really hoping they'd use the franchise to tell the tales of different characters as opposed to the standard sequel-sequel.
I'm kinda worried the electricity bag will either end up feeling either redundant, or overdone - we'll see.

First one was great, but I hope they go for a more organic feel to the city missions, and atmosphere.  Thats something the industry as a whole needs to work on.

I liked the game, but I don't mind about the new look. Cole's old look was really generic, up to the point where you could change his face for Nathan Hale and noone would notice.

That ... doesn't look like Cole.  That looks like an entirely different electric person.  If you shave that hair off, his face is still constructed differently.  The nose, eyebrows, and cheekbones are visibly wrong.  Maybe I'm crazy.

That doesn't look like Cole at all. Probably a new character. I really hope they add a lot to this game or it won't be worth it for me. I hated the open world in inFamous. The only reason I played it through to completion was because it felt great to play, as in the controls and the movement were just spot on.

I am not really seeing the beard that the article mentions... just a bit of a shadow. He looks kinda lame here with the hair... almost even more generic than the first game with him bald.
 
But I enjoyed the first game a lot so I expect the same if not better quality from the sequel - so I am really looking forward to this!
