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 Cash's cover of "H...

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 featurin...

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 Blacklight Virus,...

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 speaking with d...
