    If they set the sequel up so that it runs concurrently to the first game, I'll buy two copies.

    Think about it. You're an army guy tasked with defending a base, normal shitty guard job. You have no powers, you're human after all. All of a sudden this thing comes soaring over the walls of the base, morphing as it flies over you. Its become bigger now, a mass of muscle and dark gooey stuff. It lands on the tank, completely decimating it and throwing you back against the wall. You're dazed and stay on the ground. The mass morphs into a hooded man..... Except it has a huge blade for an arm. And then shit gets crazy.

    The trailer makes it pretty obvious your character will have powers(well, duh, would be no point otherwise).

    Though I guess they could have an intro chapter explaining how he got into his powers.

    Two things:

    1) I need another copy of this game. I kinda gave my copy to a friend and he kinda traded it for credit at Gamestop. I was kinda fucking mad.

    2) Air-tentacle car grab looks like it's going to be such an insanely fun power! I mean, if they set that up so that it grabs any vehicle/large item in the radius and can then be THROWN? Holy shit.

    I am so stoked for this, the first game is not perfect, but it is insanely fun.

    SO like I'm gonna make a murder montage with this game. But I need excellent music. It has to be fast, loud and really energetic. Rock, punk, metal is all good. But I'd like to stay away from the really heavy metal, meaning no Norwegian death troupes.

    Suggestions please, people.

    I don't want variety in missions to translate into "you are forced to use x or do y in this mission losing your freedom"

    Just because you guys used tanks the whole game doesn't mean it was the only option. I barely used tanks. Mercer was much stronger.

    I'm a bit nervy of "extra variety in missions" in freeform games like this, because it invariably translates into losing options and handholding missions. For example, AC2 and ACB. Brotherhood is especially bad. The missions to infiltrate the castello it handholds your way through this entire castle, making it end up linear.

    Nah man there are abandoned helicopters for that missions where you protect the convoy going through the streets.

    And the actual mission where you protect it in one place, I have one word for you: "Devastators".

    They don't hurt the pump. At all. You can stand on it and do a devastator and kill all the hunters surrounding it.

    You know that mission where you have to fly the helicopter around and pick up people and shit?

    You can actually land the helicopter somewhere, go and do the objectives on foot, then walk back to the helicopter, hop in and continue. This works all the way up until the very last part where you pick up the two batches of soldiers.

    Here are my suggestions for stuff that probably won't get recommended by anyone else:


    "Eternal Squaredance" or "Whorses" by Tweak Bird

    "It's Hard (The Squeal)" by Modey Lemon

    "Octopus Too" by The Mean Reds

    "Raging In The Plague Age" by Les Savy Fav

    "Super Tape Worm" by The Joint Chiefs of Math

    "Bad Kids" by Black Lips


    A couple of these are even thematically appropriate for Prototype too. Sort of. :P

    They better get those sword arms in for this sequel. When I bought the game and saw them missing, I was totally bummed. I know they're similar to the claws, but it would be a good way to differentiate Alec and this new guy. Since he's Blackwatch, give him some less beastial, more refined mutations.

    Sword arms? Was that from a beta trailer or something? Never heard of em. I know they cut a lot of powers out because they were redundant, bugged or not functioning properly.

    No, the original trailers (they're still on GT I think), showed him using 2 sword arms. Looked similar to how the claws work now, but they were 2 sword hands.

    Especially when he starts getting super pissed during that one tank mission

    this was good because it made the character's motivation consistent with the way people are actually going to play the game

    it really helped me inhabit the nuanced psychology behind being a guy who runs up and down 20 city blocks smashing pedestrians against the wall with a battering ram

    I can honestly say I don't even recall there being a story element to Prototype. All I can remember is a haze of red, limbs, black goo, shredded tanks* and fire.

    I've been playing Prototype on and off again because of you guys. I never did learn the slide-on-a-corpse trick, though. Does it require muscle mass to do? I never understood the use of MM, because I was all about the whipfist and bringing things to me.

    *Shredded tanks are high fiber, more so than even Blackwatch commanders. If you have a high cholesterol, then shredded tanks might be the thing for you.

    You attack a Blackwatch convoy and it seems to be going well when suddenly a soldier throws a tank at you

    Surfing is a buyable power, but you can enter it as a cheat in the extras screen to get it for free from the start.

    Then you just target a humanoid thing and hold fly kick all the way. I don't know the code, it's in gamefaqs cheat section.

    Nope

    Neither of those really have the constant speed that I'm looking for. :(

    Strangely, the only song I've really found that does is Surfin' Bird by The Trashmen. I'll totally do a corpse surfing and street smashing montage with that for shits and giggles, but I want a really good song for the proper video.

    Ok. I've definitely got enough footage. SONG NEEDED. Most of the gameplay footage is done in armour mode. There's tonnes of car shoving, jumping and flying off buildings to splat things. Also helicopter jacking.

    Couldn't those roided out Hulk-Blackwatch guys throw stuff at you?

    Those guys were the bane of my existence when they first showed up. Now I make it my personal mission to kill each one I find.

    I've got every power unlocked, and I know I've surfed at least one body, but that was way back when it first got unlocked.

    My preferred mode of landing has been going from armour to shield and then charging stuff. Sure, less splat, but I get more ragdoll.

    Another bonus about the surfing is that while youa re surfing if you charge up the kick again you can do a backflip off the corpse and launch it at your targetted enemy. It really is glorious.

    I've found that this doesn't have the desired effect while using muscle mass. It results in a cloud of blood and bone, basically.

    So is whipfist skyjacking and it's a lot easier to land the initial hit.
