Activision's released a new trailer for Prototype 2, detailing the history of Blackwatch. Don't know what Blackwatch is? Watch the video. It's detailed. They've done some bad things that have resulted in terrifying monsters. Jerks.
If you plan on playing Prototype 2 and missed out on the original, this video is a good primer. The game is out for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC next year, so you've still got time to catch up.
The PC version of Prototype 2 has finally graced computer players with its presence, after launching for Xbox 360 and PS3 back in April. All boxed copies and pre-ordered digital copies will include access to the game's RADNET...more

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...more
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.more
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...more
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...more
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. more
With news that should surprise no one, Activision has announced today that Prototype 2 will be getting a collector's edition called the Blackwatch Collector's Edition. $79.99 will net you a pretty good amount of extra conten...more
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...more
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 ...more
BitSummit is under way in Kyoto, Japan, and some of the country’s finest independent developers are present to show off their games. One particularly strong showing comes from Funktronic Labs, a studio that’s nat...more
How many copies of Guacamelee! is too many? At first glance, I was sure I'd be able to pass on the recently-announced Super Turbo Championship Edition for Xbox 360, Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One having played it once before on PS3...more
I'm increasingly of the opinion that nothing short of a miracle will save the delayed Wii U version of the already-delayed Watch Dogs. Ubisoft announced a May 27, 2014 release date for every other version of the game today. W...more
