inFAMOUS was a game with a few flaws, not least among them being the rather silly voice of main character Cole. He basically sounded like the illegitimate love child of Solid Snake and Dr. Claw, and it made him very hard to take seriously as a character. Well, with an inFAMOUS sequel on the cards, it's been rumored that Cole's voice actor is getting replaced.
The gossip comes by way of actor David Sullivan, who revealed via Twitter that he auditioned as a voiceover/motion capture artist for the new game and dropped the major hint about Cole's new voice: "First voiceover/motion capture audition today for a video game. Re-casting of Cole in the sequel of inFAMOUS. 'I’ll melt your face.' e.g."
Now they just need to rethink the repetitive missions, crackshot enemies and lame superpowers, and we'll have an awesome game. Seriously though, the original had promise and I'm eager to see Sucker Punch get another crack at the whip. A recast Cole is a very good start, so let's see if this change is more than just a rumor as time goes by.
