Prototype and Prototype 2 might be heading to PS4

Back in 2009, a brutal war was raging in gaming. No, not Xbox vs PlayStation, or Call of Duty vs Halo. It was worse. So much worse. A war centred around mediocre open-world superhero games. On the left, we had Sucker Punch’s inFa...

Top-down horror title Noct releases playable prototype

The last time we talked about the top-down shooter/survival horror hybrid Noct, all we had to go on were the few snippets of gameplay that were stitched together in the prototype trailer. Based only on what I saw in that trailer, Noct still...

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...

The DTOID Show: Rayman Origins 2 & Arkham City GOTY

Hey gang! It's us. Again. I'm sorry Tara's not here, but she's still at Coachella apparently. Dear lord today has been stressful and miserable. Anthony's nice enough to be a substitute guest host, but damn. Just not the same. I need a good...

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 between last gener...

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 happened? In any case,...

Prototype 2's Supersoldiers sound delightful
