Who Would Win Wednesdays: Cole MacGrath vs. Delsin Rowe
Posted by Robert Ramsey
With Who Would Win Wednesdays now in its ninth week, it goes without saying that we've pondered over some memorable tussles, and our last brawl was no different. It was a close one right until the end, but Ocelot's lead was never truly diminished as he gunned down poor old John Marston and left him to die in the dirt like a dog. Stepping away from lunatics with too many bullets and itchy trigger fingers, we suppose that this week's match-up may be a somewhat obvious clash, but it's certainly a fight that many gamers will have been mulling over in their heads recently. So buckle up, read about our superpowered combatants, and decide their fate in our poll – this should be electric.
Skinhead courier turned electrifying superhuman, Cole MacGrath is a force to be reckoned with on the field of battle. As our shockingly bad puns suggest, inFAMOUS and inFAMOUS 2's hero – or indeed anti-hero – utilises the power of electricity to turn his foes to dust. He can let off quick blasts that are useful at almost any range, throw out condensed elemental grenades which house devastating power, and unleash a swirling tornado of ruthless destruction that's sure to rip apart even the sturdiest foe. In his second game, Cole can also manipulate ice and fire, which bolster his offensive options further still. As if that wasn't enough, he simply adores swinging his amp – an electrified metal club – around with reckless abandon. We dare say that among Sony's exclusive warriors, Cole's vying for one of the top spots.
He may be a little inexperienced, but inFAMOUS: Second Son's lead character embraces his power despite the responsibility that comes with it – a trait which immediately makes him a confident and deadly opponent. With the ability to absorb other conduits' powers, Delsin is able to make use of several incredibly pretty elements which he can switch between over the course of a battle, provided that a source is nearby. He can spray enemies with smoky bullets, dazzle foes with neon shots, and take out entire platoons of armed guards with a destructive karmic bomb. The PlayStation 4's most popular graffiti artist is also a rather nimble fighter, as his array of powers allow him to travel quickly from one spot to another in the blink of an eye, or scale tall buildings in a matter of seconds.
It's a battle that you'd usually see on the pages of a comic book, but which of Sucker Punch's leads would emerge the victor? Vote for your winner in our poll, and tell us how you think the battle would unfold in the comments section below.
