So we knw what happend at the end of the first game and the second opens with Cole fighting against the Beast, the enemy we all should know about.
Since Kessler turned out to be the alternate future of Cole, we also know that he's going to be a very, very powerful individual. But that also brings up the question, who is the Beast? I actually know the answer even though I made it clear that I did not want to know the answer. However, I had a hunch of this person's identity and turns out I was right, even though I wanted to play the game myself and keep myself getting. Things don't always go your way, my PS3 getting the YLOD proved that permenantly.
Actually...nothing I said other than Kessler was a spoiler. Ah well, back to job hunting.
