inFamous 2 Hero To "Look More Like" Original Cole
We love how inFamous 2 looks. That game is gonna rock.
But like many others, we weren't the biggest fans of Cole's cosmetic overhaul. Appearing like a skater dude who suddenly got super powers didn't go over well with many fans of the original, and although Sucker Punch tried to explain the reasoning behind the change, it seems the negative feedback has proved overwhelming. According to what the team said at San Diego Comic-Con 2010, they're changing Cole back! He won't be exactly as he was in the first game, but he'll certainly look "more like he did," which is just fine by us. The new screens and footage that debuted at the event apparently show a very different - and in our eyes, more fitting - protagonist, complete with more hair, tattoos and a few other assets that should prove popular with the fans. So while it's not the old Cole, this new character certainly resembles the original hero more than that punk we've seen recently, and that proves Sucker Punch's loyalty and responsiveness to those who really adored the first title. The mark of a respectable company!
It just goes to show that if enough people complain, and the complaints appear to be both widespread and numerous, good things can happen. Hey, the game wasn't done yet; changing the appearance of the main character was still possible, and you helped make that happen.
