I had NO idea infamous was over two years old until I started infamous 2. HOLY BALLS what a difference! The graphics, gameplay, controls….im-prove-MENT! Since there weren’t any fancy schmancy cut scenes in infamous—just the comic stylized ones–it was pretty exciting to see some amped-up graphics, not to uhhhh mention an amped up Cole. Mmmm.
Now, I know a lot of you prefer Cole’s new voice over his old, gravely deep-as-fuck voice from the first game, buut to be honest I think he sounds like someone fresh off of grandpa’s farm. Whether you want to classify him as a Superhero or not, he’s something of the sort, right? He’s not the type of hero to lurk around and attack stealthy; he’s balls-to-the-wall. So I had no issue with his first voice. It was badass. He was badass. That being said, I feel like this new voice makes Cole a little more relatable and makes him appear more…human. More emotion carries within this voice than the first, and since it’s not as super-heroy Cole is more personable, almost more vulnerable. Dunno if that was Sucker Punch’s intention or not, but that’s the vibe I’m getting.
OH, speaking of Sucker Punch: WTF dudezors?!!? I spent close to a million hours protecting Empire City and you not only decide to introduce the crazy Beast thing, you also have it destroy the city within seconds! BAAAAAAH. ::shakes fist:: All that effort for naught. Le sigh. So, yeah, Empire City is toast, and now I’m onto New Marais. Looks like it was quite the party town, but now the “militia” is pulling a Dustmen/Reaper thing.
Its been a few days since I played inFamous 2, so my memory might be a little rusty. I remember stumbling across a TV with this Bertrand dude on it, pledging to protect the public from the “freak” and “abomination”, at the cost of their freedom…or something like that. Pretty much this guy has imposed harsh martial-law on the peeps. Have I been introduced to the first baddy?! Me thinks so. What I don’t know is what role this guy plays, or more importantly, if he’s working for anyone.
This doctor dude, Wolfe I believe, had…something…a version of the Ray Sphere (?) that allowed Cole’s powers to improve. Unfortunately my memory is foggy as HELL as who is who and how they are related to the story, but Kuo (chick from the NSA) and him seemed to be in cahoots—OH! Okay. Dr. Wolfe worked on the Ray Sphere for Kessler. That’s right. Apparently he can help Cole further his powers. I REMEMBER EVERYTHING NOW.
Long story short, the Beast is following Cole and company, destroying every city in its path. Lovely.
Time for randomz:
I LIKE ZEKE. Why? Because of this:
Also, Cole said that Zeke will do whatever it takes to mend their friendship so they can be as close as they once were. He also made Cole that Amp thingy. So, as of right now Zeke is on my “<3” list. If he messes up, or starts whining, he’s going back on my “</3” list. YOU HEAR ME, ZEKE?!
So, this Kuo lady…she and Cole? HMMMM? It’s only been months since Trish’s death (or something like that) but hey, a dude’s gotta get some! Or maybe she and Zeke will hook up. THAT WOULD BE HILARIOUS. Or maybe I’m just grasping at straws for some sort of romance plot. I keep forgetting this isn’t a Bioware game.
Finally, I’m bummed the option to watch comicy-cutscenes are gone. Dunno why those were omitted this time around, but it makes me a sad panda.
The Beast is 1,132 miles away from me. Rut-roh.
