    Whelp, I was going to get it on Steam, but now I'll just get it on a console. Sorry PC gaming.

    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.

    Oh, I'm actually not assuming that the DLC stuff is garbage quality; sorry if I wasn't clear on that. It could be very good as far as I know; I make no judgement on the game itself because I don't know anything about it.

    It's this DLC business I'm considering crap. Release the complete game already instead of holding out on things just to nickel-and-dime people; this preorder bullshit is well past the point where it's stupid.

    Guess I should give it a last go, to try and get those 10-ish orbs I'm missing in Prototype.

    Hope the Blackboxes in Prototype 2 isn't tedious bullshit like that.

    Not at release but stuff hits half price easily within a month or two in the uk. Still more than steam sales but it's a sooner price drop than we usually see there.

    Uh from what I can tell this extra DLC is just that, extra content like new skins and weapons. You get it free if you pre-order/buy it new and pay if you get the game used. Honestly while I don't care for activision at all I'm fine with this tactic since Gamestop can go fuck itself and there's now no reason to buy this game used from them unless the price is way lower than their bullshit mark ups generally are.

    I think the whole pre-order DLC thing is kind of funny because they try to use it as a way to entice people to buy the game and it's pissing people off now. One of the best ways to make sure I won't preorder a game these days is if I know they'll be tossing in a bunch of stuff later on; why would I buy the standard game right away when I can buy it 6-12 months later for half the price and a lot more content?

    And I even really, really liked the original. Not gonna preorder for content that isn't worth anything, though; I can easily bide my time until the price drops.

    They both have extremely similar gameplay. The stories both involved aliens taking over peoples bodies. The only real difference was prototype was a lot more bloody.

    Now before you guys start getting all nerdragey up here, I never said they were bad games. In fact my only complaint about them was the fact that they were too similar.

    I am not a completionist when it comes to most games. I beat the story mode and if they dont have a multiplayer they get traded in towards the next release title. I liked prototype for the most part. I just can't believe that I am the only one here who thinks that those 2 games being played within a few months of each other would bear striking resemblances.

    Spidey was last played 3/23/09, Prototype 7/31/09.

    Not even Luke Cage could save Web of Shadows.

    And that Wolverine boss fight was asinine. Trivia used to determine your alignment is horseshit.

    As I understood it early on you get a symbiote suit and have the ability to switch between it and "classic " spidey combat

    Black suit is better at dealing huge damage and you get villain allies while regular spidey play how you expect and you get hero allies

    The combat in prototype is parkour mixed with the hulk and the environment is a huge factor. I guess both have tentacles though. Other than that I don't see any similarities.

    Yeah, Prototype's story had a lot more effort put in than was strictly necessary for a silly premise like this. Alex's character sort of fell apart by the end but maybe that was the point eh? ;D

    Or you could run around, dragging people up buildings, throwing them at helecopters, and tossing tanks into the bay.

    There's nothing making you get into a tank.

    Not true. Spiderman was out Oct 21 2008. Prototype came out June 9 2009.

    Also if you noticed the way you traveled about the city was very similar as well. Spiderman jumped off the top of buildings and swung on webs and dude from prototype glided from the tops of buildings.

    The Hulk game the Prototype devs developed came out in 2005. It's basically the PG-13 version of Prototype and pretty much everything in Prototype is an evolution from that game. The gameplay has nothing to do with some Spiderman game

    DUDE you aren't going to convince ANYBODY! they both are super-hero games, set in new york, with a virus attacking the people.
    the similarities end there. the combat in spiderman is very shallow, most enemies die in a few hits, walking and fighting on walls is DUMB, and overall it's sloppy and visually less pleasing that protoype.

    protoype's combat and uprgades put WoS's to shame, it's much more in depth and rewarding to do stuff in prototype, including side missions. combat options are so varied in prototype, by the end you are basically a god of destruction. by the end of spiderman you are... still spiderman.
    as alex mercer you can:
    glide/dash through the air
    kick helicopters/ piledrive tanks
    grab, throw, or eat people
    disguise as ANYBODY
    infiltrate bases while disguised to gain knowledge
    use guns and vehicles
    pickup vehicles and other large objects

    they way they move really aren't that similar, in fact again it's more similar to how the hulk moves in UD... large, powerful jumps and the ability to run along walls. combo in alex's parkour system it's already vastly different than web-swinging.

    you can point out vague similarities and say THEY ARE DA SAME but it's really not the case if you beat both games, or even spent any amount of time on both.

    So what you're saying is that Web of Shadows rips off Hulk: Ultimate Destruction then if you really want to get down to brass tacks here.

    Yeah basically. The only thing tanks are for is for fucking elbow dropping them. If you just ran around in a tank the whole time then I feel sorry for you because you're truly a boring and unimaginative individual.

    The only similarities between Web of Shadows and Prototype is that you have a tentacle attack where the tentacle is made out of black goop.

    That's it.

    If you want to have stupid as fuck debates, please take this discussion to another thread.
