@ kenundrum7 i love burn notice! one of the best tv series out there lol. and yeah this game is going to be so much better then the first. ice and fire powers woo! it also looks like they increased mobility which is what i was worried about. i would like to have something close of the mobility of prototype except with an electric feel. obviously cole cant run at blazing speeds but he can def charge up on some metalic plate and levitate it or something. this game reminds me so much of psi ops: the mindgate conspiracy. if they came out with a new and improved psi ops game that would be insane. id pre order in a heartbeat!

I'm glad they took advice from Naughty Dog. Their magic touch could have helped SP make this a masterpiece.

That I think is the one thing that bugged me the most about Infamous 1 was the whole "Jump grab, jump grab" and then grabbing onto something I didnt want to. ill admit Infamous 1 was kinda glitchy/had some issues but still was a very enjoyable game and didnt hinder it at all. I am just happy to see Infamous 2 is going to flow alot smoother XD

I like Zeke. He reminds me of Sam Axe from Burn Notice. Sucker Punch built my anticipation for this one. I hope it delivers.

3 things: 1 Zeke looks like a fat elvis presley, 2 red powers are too light red, they're not evil enough, needs to be a dark/blood red like in the first game. 3 unless they got rid of it (which I hope they did) Cole's handshake after unleashing any and all electric powers is STUPID and retarded. Really large powers like the ionic vortex thats kinda kool; he unleashes alot of power zaps himself a little bit and shakes his hands off, thats kool. It just becomes stupid when he does it every time though.

@Dragonsingh3000 They probably did away with the version of Cole with hair because he looked ridiculously similar to Nathan Drake of the Uncharted series. I actually miss the old voice actor. The new guy sounds kind of like Martin Sheen.

I hope the story mode last over 20 hours....I really want this to be a very long game with loads of content...Plus I have to play it 2 times, once good/bad...n we get to create our own missions and mini games...what can be better than this... :D

@kingleonidas87: You're supposed to put the difficulty setting higher than "schlub." And if you didn't like the game, then why did you beat it? And if you didn't like the game, why are you commenting on the sequel? And if you didn't like the game, why do you keep parading your angle on the same thread? As you can see, redundancy is boring. Stay in school.

Those necromorph like creatures look like they may have the sludge Sasha was using only if it was so strong it mutated people plus has anyone noticed Nix's oily fire powers look like Sasha's sludge making me wonder is sasha back plus where is Alden is he going to appear or is he being saved for the third game.

no there is no problem at all the game was a solid 5 It doesnt get any more easy than that or am I confusing you to much now

@kingleonidas87: Are you referring to inFamous? That game is a solid 9. Pull your head out, dude. Your minority opinion is clearly moot. If I'm starting to confuse you, there's a reason for that.

i just really hate the character, found it so hard to like the character in the 1st game, just felt like a skin head thug. i was happy that they changed the design in the 2nd game at the start...Then they change it back to this bold head depressing thug.

@heniurisaito I played through the whole game in Dutch, so there was a Dutch voice actor, so that's different than the English one. And I have to say, this voice suits him much better than that Dutch gay voice. Game looks AWESOME so far!

@cooleo123 not at all, I've got a PS3 and more or less liked the first Infamous (I saw problems with the story, etc, but the overall was ok) and that is one of the reasons why I don't like where the story goes... @j_kizi - Interesting though...very interesting... :)

Oh great...another story that gets f*cked up because of a slight inferiority complex syndrome of the game designers... come on "the monster" refered to in the first game is that big, ugly and stupid thing that we saw in the video? I don't know you, but I'm tired of big monsters... try to think of something else or this story will s*ck big time.

I wouldn't mind having the Cole with hair as an unlockable costume, or something you can choose from the start.

the guy with hair is cole before they decided to remake him again, due to criticism... the cole that will be in the final game is hairless cole.. with scars too..
