Playing inFamous for the first time; did I miss a chunk of the plot or something

#1Grandy12Posted 10/10/2012 7:04:27 AM
(spoilers)

Cole started the story by saying that the Reapers were "a gang of drug dealers" that "took over after the terrorist attack"

Later on, he finds a factory of Reapers. And he doesn't express any surprise over the fact that Reapers are brainwashed citizens, he just matter of factly states "Hey, I found out where they make the Reapers".

Any normal person would have freaked out upon finding out that Reapers are made at all, yet he acts as if he knew Reapers weren't human from the start.

Did I miss something there?

There is also the fact nobody in town seems that surprised that some dude has freaking superpowers.

The Reapers don't even sound human

The reapers didn't look human at all. The closest to human they look is like mutated humans.
And a lot of weird crap happens in the game so I never really thought about any of this.
He's a superhero. Most superhero movies people usually don't freak out when they see someone with super powers.

I never listened to them talk.

But that is besides the point; if they didn't sound human, why did Cole even imply they were normal drug dealers before the takeover?

Probably because they were at first.

Probably because they were at first.


And if so, why does Cole acts as if he knew the fact they weren't human anymore from the start?

It's never stated, but a theory could be that Sasha initially "infected" the reaper street gang and then used them to capture citizens and make more reapers.

I was under the impression that Reapers were "Made" through the use of that mind-altering goo that the psycho woman uses. That they ARE humans, just brainwashed to hell.

..and frankly, Cole isn't exactly a "Normal" person. He's kind of been through hell, nothing really phases him because of that fact. He's desensitized to it.

Math problems are the ultimate trick question. No matter how straight forward and simple they seem, the answer is never what you think it is.
