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 bet... read feature

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


Apr 16
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. read

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.  read feature

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 ... read

Prototype 2 is getting some extra promotion in the form of a free iOS games. Protoslice is a puzzle game in which you have to move Sgt.

Fire, claws, knives, there's basically everything you need to commit your favorite brand of genocide.  I am so stoked for this game. read

Get in the Game: Become a character in Prototype 2

My mind is always blown at these kinds of promotions. It could be seen as risky to open up the playing field for anyone to become a character in your game. What if they're really scary or strange? Do you want that in your gam... read
