    Well that sure as hell makes a lot of sense out of all the speculation.

    I really like this approach, making Mercer the bad guy. I can't think of any similar situations to this, outside of maybe Golden Sun?

    Just hope they stick with it, and don't pull a "doh ho, he was good all along, let's TEAM UP!" halfway through.

    "doh ho ho he was good all along I'm gonna eat him and continue on his legacy within me."

    This is prototype. It's gonna be messed up.

    There is only a single thing I am not happy about in this new game. I saw in the mutations trailer that one of the mutations is your second dash. Dash, essentially, was prototype to me. If it still functions like Prototype 1 (and it better or I'm going to be one unhappy camper) there is no world in which not having a second dash is better because it means you cannot use one dash to gain height and still have the second to maneouvre to walls and such or escape from mid air hits, avoid missiles or worse dash into the ground for speed at the end. A properly timed double dash while jumping also triples your height, letting a barely charged jump zip straight out of harms way.
    It makes it compulsory. Which means one of the mutation slots is non negotiable. Kind of sucky.

    Oh yeah they also put speed in there. I really don't like this whole putting movement as an option thing they have going. I'm not going to get to play around with the other stuff properly because I'm going to have half my mutation slots filled up with what should already be there.

    Damn, Heller really is going to be a way better protagonist then Mercer.

    I love me some free roam games; I'll pretty much buy any of them but every video I see of this game just looks like crap warmed over.

  • Dark Raven XDark Raven X When you speak I hear muffinsRegistered User regular
    I must agree, graphically Prototype 2 looks like butts, the tentacle animations all look very rough and badly hide the model transitions, but!

    Helicopter uppercuts.

    Graphics.
    Meh.
    I usually need graphics specifically pointed out to me to see a problem with it. And then usually the person has to be all "Let me show you my pokemans" at me and bring out the comparison shots and the way too detailed analysis and I'm all man I don't really care just let me uppercut helicopters.
    I'll leave caring about the graphics to other people.

    I'm preordering this tomorrow.
    I haven't preordered any game a month in advance for years.
    I'm the very definition of hype. All by myself. I don't need anyone else.

    As long as the graphics are serviceable then I really don't give a shit tbh. Gameplay is my true lord and savior.

    Going to have to make a choice myself.

    Need to save up money for a trip I'm taking with my bros. So either Witcher 2 or Prototype 2.

    That being said it'll probably be Prototype 2.

    Just think man I'm gonna be all going YOU CAN DO THIS AWESOME SHIT LIST LIST LIST and you'll be like man I wish I'd bought prototype 2 now...

    Yeah. Like I've already played a lot of RPGs these last few months so I can wait on that.

    I'm actually thinking of setting aside a notebook as I play this time, try to keep things organised so it isn't all a big mess. Oh I should clean out my hdd so I can record vids to capture shit with my recorder. That'll be easier than explaining.
    So much preparing. Busy busy.

    This game looks pretty neat. It also looks a bit 90s grimdark superjerk comics flavored, which is sort of off-putting. The tendril ability really makes this look like a (Venom) symbiont game without a hint of Spider-man.

    So I am interested. And it comes out a few days after my birthday. hm.

    Didn't know this was coming out so soon. I loved the first one. I'm trying to save up money for something, but I think I'll try to get this anyway.

    Just so you know the first game had you being worse than Venom dreamed he could be.

    These guys would eat Venom. Not in a cool way, just in a horrible way. They make Carnage look good.

    There were a few people who played the first Prototype and were disappointed they couldn't be a hero type guy. I really, really doubt you will be able to do it in this game either, it's not the type of game they are trying to go for. Just a heads up.

    I think this game looks fun, I wasn't using the Venom comparison to express distaste, I was just saying the concept and the powers are so similar I am sort of surprised Marvel didn't shut these guys down.

    So is this game at PAX? I can't find much actual gameplay footage anywhere, despite it coming out in two weeks.

    If you could, that'd shut down, like, 90% of the anime production companies out there.

    Hmmm.

    Doesn't seem to be anything too challenging on that list. In fact, a few of them sound down right fun. The achievement hunter in me is definitely pleased.

    Oh, and here's a look at some of the weapons you can tote.



    I can see myself having fun with some of the heavier weapons on offer.

    Look forward to playing this in a year or so when the actual, full game is available.

    EDIT: Apparently there's going to be an assload of DLC, not just a couple things here and there. Thanks, but no thanks; I'd rather spend money on getting entire games than piecemeal nonsense.

    Crazy idea: You could just wait and see before assuming everything is garbage because you don't like a business model that may or may not be in place for a game that is not out yet.

    Doesn't bother me too much since I'll be buying new so the version I get will have them. And even if it doesn't, well... I won't lose any sleep over missing out on a DLC weapon and ability given all the other stuff in the game that does interest me. Even only having nine reasons in that video to get Prototype 2 is eight more than I need.

    That said, I completely understand your sentiment. I'd love it if all this pre-order crap that goes on at the moment were to die in a fire.

    Not to go all "consoles hurr durr" but I think the reason the graphics aren't so good and basically hardly even an upgrade from the previous game is because the game can get pretty damn resource consuming in huge fights. You can have hundreds of civilians on screen while helicopters are raining down death all around you, monsters are stampeding in the streets next to columns of tanks and an army of angry grunts while you're running and flying around making everything explode violently in showers of blood and fire while you piss off the entire city

    I honestly don't think the current consoles, which are all old tech nowadays, can handle that much intense action if the visuals are all pumped up too high
