Review: Prototype 2

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...

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 ...

Prototype 2: Better side missions, expanded gameplay

If gamers had one lasting complaint about Prototype, it's that the gameplay could get pretty repetitive. Side missions were particularly galling, featuring drab time trial exercises that felt like petty wastes of time. While ...

Prototype 2 screens are full of sharp, pointy things

You want screenshots for Prototype 2? No? Tough bollocks, son, you got 'em anyway! There's plenty of death and destruction in these images, as James Heller chews through half a city with his mutant virus arms. Fire, claws, knives, there's basically everything you need to commit your favorite brand of genocide.  I am so stoked for this game.

Prototype 2 gets 'Evolution of Awesome' trailer

With a trailer that's called itself "Evolution of Awesome," I was expecting a bit more from Prototype 2's marketing department. Instead, we get that Valkyries tune with a slow-motion image of James Heller jumping toward a he...

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...

Prototype 2 has a Father's Day message for you

I promised myself that if the powers that be continued pumping out Prototype 2-themed cards for every single holiday, I'd make sure we posted them all. And, it looks like they're actually following through. F*ck! So here you are, fathers everywhere. Enjoy (?) this ridiculous image.
