inFAMOUS Comic-Con Recap

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.

Cole vs the chain-link fence =D

i like both “coles” – i mean… i liked this softer, sunnyboy-version of cole, too! honestly… im sad that they dont kept him – hopefully they keep the skin in the game… so that I can optinally play with that one :)

Well I like the old cole and his gruffy voice…
But then I like the new cole and his animations…
Hmmm… But which is better
There is only one way to find out!

FIGHT!

So they’re taking Cole back to what he looked like in the first game? :(

BEYOND !!!!

I hope They will show Us the new Cole soon, so if they need to change again they still can. Is a bit strange see a game “near” its release (I suppose mid-2011) and no definitive main character model.

P.S. No inFAMOUS 2 Theme in Europe, uh?

I was gonna say BEYOND! but dean147 beat me to it :P

I hope they don’t waste the new cole design/voice acting. Why not let players pick or leave it as an unlock.
