1. Lovin' The Ladies


As Infamous 2 unfolds, Cole will develop relationships with two superpowered women: the NSA agent Kuo, who can freeze people solid, and the revenge-obsessed Nix, whose powers are oil-based. (Sound kinda gross? It is—Nix can turn herself into an oil spill and paralyze opponents like sea birds caught in a slick). The two ladies are all about kicking ass, which adds a new buddy-power dynamic to the game’s combat. Also, with Cole’s nagging girlfriend not surviving the first game (sorry, spoiler!), there's also a romantic component here. Be a good(ish) guy and you’ll wind up getting cozy with Kuo. Be bad and you'll light Nix’s fire. It might not be Mass Effect territory, but it's a nice dimension for an action game.
