It was revealed from Sucker Punch, during Sony’s session at Comic-Con, that the new and friendlier looking Cole would not be starring in the game Infamous 2, as originally announced. Developers stated that they wished to create Cole much in the same manner as he was in the first game, hoping to stay more in line with his original personality and quirks. Oh, and his frowning. Gotta have the frowning.

Personally, I LOVED the new design with Cole. I think it’s the “I’m balding so I must be at least over 40 years of age” that I had issues with in the first game. The new look helped him look much more age appropriate, and from an artistic standpoint gave his character the “development” he’d made from the first game. I mean, I doubt the small cosmetic change will enhance/reduce my enjoyment of the game, but I LIKED PRETTY BOY COLE, GIVE HIM BACK NOW! ;______;
