While we do our best to cover the most important events on the gaming calendar, there are some — such as ComicCon — that we just can’t get out to. Luckily, Jeff Rubenstein of the US PlayStation Blog has our communal back and has been blogging furiously. In case you missed it, here’s his handy round-up of the inFAMOUS 2 panel.
Panels are typically the highlights of Comic-Con, but truth be told, they’re a bit of a pain in the arse. You end up waiting in a long line (sometimes for hours), fight for good seats with people who are squatting for the Vampire Chick Lit panel happening like 2 days later in the same room, and endure one or more of the following: difficult lighting/audio issues/off-topic Q&As.
Wouldn’t it be easier if all the good stuff was cut down into, say, 7 minutes and 53 seconds?
In this highlight reel of the inFAMOUS 2 Comic-Con panel, the Sucker Punch team talks about the creation of Cole and the changes he’s gone through since the first inFAMOUS (including his voice), how New Orleans is an influence on inFAMOUS 2’s setting of New Marais, and, the all important question of why Cole can’t climb chain link fences:
And round of applause for IGN‘s Greg Miller – huge inFAMOUS fan and panel host extraordinaire. Nice job moderating, Greg.
