Prototype 2's commercial upset my mum, but why?

I was watching the Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich Champions League semifinal (some videogamer, right?) and during one of the commercial breaks, up popped the much-maligned Prototype 2 trailer. You know, the one with Johnny Cas...

Hey gang! It's us. Again. I'm sorry Tara's not here, but she's still at Coachella apparently. Dear lord today has been stressful and miserable. Anthony's nice enough to be a substitute guest host, but damn. Just not the same...

Review: Prototype 2  photo
Review: Prototype 2
by Jim Sterling

Last generation, Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy and Second Sight had the ill luck to release at the same time, despite sharing an otherwise unique concept. Games involving psychic powers and telekinesis were few and far between last generation, yet a pair of them came out at once, and it was relatively tragic for both. 

Prototype and inFAMOUS were similarly star-crossed this generation. A pair of dark open-world games involving super-powered protagonists in a ruined city were fated to draw comparisons, and while common consensus declared inFAMOUS the winner, I always gunned for Radical Entertainment's shapeshifting, cannibalistic romp. 

Nonetheless, both games were able to avoid the fates of their psychic predecessors, both performing well enough to earn sequels. For that, I am most gladdened.

Prototype 2 shows the power of revenge (and Johnny Cash)

Prototype 2 is almost upon us, and it needed just one more thing to complete the pre-launch hype -- an "emotional" trailer with suitably melancholy music. It's an old trick, but I still find it effective, so this live-action video featuring Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt" is okay by me.  The game launches on April 24 for Xbox 360 and PS3, and I'm very much looking forward to it.

Activision opens Prototype 2 merchandise store

As much as I loved Prototype, I had no idea it did well enough to get a sequel. I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least. Now, I find out it's a big enough deal to get its own clothing line? Was I asleep when that happene...

Prototype 2's Supersoldiers sound delightful

Making a supersoldier is tricky, just look at all the failed attempts to make another Captain America. In Prototype 2, Sgt. James Heller will be facing a whole army of them, so color me impressed. Using a new strain of the Bl...

Preview: Ripping sh*t up in the first hour of Prototype 2

At a press event last week Activision pointed us to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 kiosks, telling us to have at it. They let us go nuts with the full first hour or so of Radical Entertainment's Prototype 2, uninterrupted, for the first time. Nice.

I got a drink, ate some cake pops, and settled in for my first taste of this ragey, f-bomby, power-trippy sandbox follow-up to the 2009 original

Early Prototype 2 buyers to get 'Radnet Edition' upgrade

Activision is one of the few big publishers to shy away from putting online passes in its games, but with Prototype 2, it would seem the company is definitely looking to maximize brand new purchases. Early adopters of the ga...

Prototype 2 getting 'Hardened Steel' Best Buy bonus

If you pre-order Prototype 2 at Best Buy, you'll be getting your hands on the "Hardened Steel" bonus. From what I can tell, this bonus almost breaks the game by making Heller near-invincible whenever he gets into a military ...
