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...

Activision opens Prototype 2 merchandise store

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...
