IMO,It isn't that the new cole is that bad, it's just that the old Cole fit the inFamous universe better. It painted More of a darker hero. Brooding? Nah, this was never "Batman with Lightning Powers" but a dark hero necessary nonetheless.
So, bring back the old VA and I can live with the new look. That's my propostition Sucker Punch. Oh, and for godsakes, don't let something like Jersey Shore influence your art ever again.
Well, I read that Sucker Punch has gotten so many complaints about the look of the character that they are going to tweak his look. IMO he looks too generic, now, and a little too much like Nathan Drake. I hope they make him a little bit more like the original Cole. And I have to agree with you on the voice actor. This new guy sounds horrible. Bring back the old VA, I say. Though, the gameplay does look pretty good.
Do you have any idea what Emo is? Cause Cole looked nothing like an emo kid in the first one. No eyeliner. No tight girl pants. And definitely no hair brushed forward into his hair.
This is emo:
This is bad-ass Cole:
