That doesn't seem too bad. Granted, I have no idea what most of it means. What I do know is that Prototype is looking pretty hot thanks to Colette's preview. I am worried it will get a little too repetitive, but that's a fear I always have about sandbox games.
How about you? Looking forward to Prototype?
