The first time i played Infamous 2 i thought the games is gonna feel floaty it's going to feel just like how spiderman moves and such, but i played it and it was superb fun and it felt just right, then after i played Infamous 1 and festival of blood.
Exactly as expected, they killed off the protagonist in InFamous 2, to make way for the new people. I'll keep my money...I like games with long storylines. Ripoffs like Mass Effect 3 and Assassin's Creed 3 just tick me off, with ruinous writing worse than children's books - and the InFamous devs decided to go the same route. Congrats at getting none of my money, morons.
@Dictatroll because its sony fanboys that troll xbox stoies not the other way round. i am not a fanboy of any i have xbox 360 and ps 3 and just am a game fan and have seen for my self on the internet that it is sony fans doing all the trolling and petite name calling like you have just done calling people an xbot.
@Dictatroll I turned on the multiplayer after my first play through, and almost got to the part where I joined a game before realizing I that I should just play the game again. Still haven't gone back, but I've heard it's very good.
@kik4444@VarietyMage Except there's no trace of Cole in the release trailers, and he's not the main character. Therefore, they killed him off. End of Cole's story, and end of the series for me. I liked Cole. I don't know these new characters, and to tell the truth, I don't feel like investing any time in the new ones. I wanted to see how they brought Cole back, and I was disappointed....again (ME3, AC3, now I:SS).
@96augment@VarietyMage *sigh* When you don't have Cole as the main character, that makes the game totally different from previous games, and as such, that makes me unhappy, because I like story in my games. Killing off protagonists like Cole in InFamous 2 is really bad writing, as it doesn't allow for long, extended game series. They write themselves into a corner, then kill off the protagonist when they can't think of any way to continue the story. That's called lazy, i.e. bad, writing.
@96augment@VarietyMage I don't feel like watching characters dying off like flies. No emotional investment. It would be akin to watching a true Mortal Kombat tournament, let's see who's still alive at the end. Not my cup of tea.
@kohle36 @VarietyMage @96augment Dune series, Star Wars Expanded Universe (particularly the Yuushan Vong war series - 14 books), David Brin's Existence (800+ pages), Tolkien, Battlefield Earth (1600+ pages), Asimov's Foundation Series...that sort of long-term storyline.
@VarietyMage@96augment The franchise "inFamous" is about the gameplay style. A bit like in Final Fantasy. Most elements are kept, but the story doesn't need to be a real sequel. Cole was cool, Cole is dead, time to move on in the same world.
@strikeback1247 @VarietyMage @96augment I prefer killing off a main Character before he can get Stale this allows them to open up a new character with new Abilities and new personality instead of the same old Character. like Master Chief in Halo, He has become the face of halo so now Halo will always be about him which means we will never get to see a new main character that is different.
@VarietyMage Different doesn't mean bad. Infamous: Second Son could have a good story. There's no way to know unless you play the game. It would have been worse writing if they had found some way to bring back Cole.
