Coming off the sad news of the closing of developer Radical Entertainment, Nathan from Leviathyn.com pays tribute to the legacy of Prototype by discussing what was, and what could have been.

NoobFeed.com celebrates Halloween in style. Playing dress up at the local convention can be a little intimidating or even embarassing, so here are some ways to support fan faovirtes without losing face or shedding clothes. It's cold this time a year, so we can't have people running around with no clothes on. Happy Halloween!

Raptr analyzes one of the most interesting exchanges of gaming achievements between Capcom's Dead Rising series and Valve's Left 4 Dead. Both games require gamers to kill well over 53,000 zombies to earn a coveted achievement that only 2-4% have gotten. However after checking all the numbers on Raptr, another gaming franchise has entered into the mass zombie-killing achievement discussion as well.

"MI6, the association dedicated to supporting marketing, promotion and advertising professionals in the videogame and interactive entertainment community, hosted a festive awards show to honour the best marketing work in the video game industry, wrapping up the action-packed fifth annual MI6 Conference. Comedian Ryan Stout hosted the evening and kept the crowd laughing. Assassin’s Creed II took home the most gold with seven MI6 Awards, including the highly competitive “Outstanding Overall Inte..."

First released in June of last year on the Xbox 360, Prototype appears to be the latest game added to the Platinum Hits lineup. In addition to the new packaging, it will be sold at a budgeted price.

Not even an HD success can keep you safe, it seems.

According to a poster on NeoGAF with friends in Vancouver-based developer Radical Entertainment, the company has laid off 90+ employees less than two years after laying off around 100. Radical's last released project was Activision Blizzard's action-adventure title Prototype for the 360, PS3, and PC, which sold close to 2 million units worldwide.

"The industry has had it perfected for roughly five years now, or since the release of Spiderman 2. What I’m talking about is your controlled character’s ability to cross gigantic cityscapes quicker than you can say “parcheesi.” Quicker, I say, because you might stutter a couple of times.

I should have chosen a different word.

Surprisingly, it got even better from there. Ultimate Spiderman succeeded Spiderman 2, and last year we were lucky enough to get both InFamous and Prototype; the c..."

"They were hyped, they were highly anticipated, they were meant to be GREAT. But they simply disappointed the fans and therefore were thrown in the bucket of shame. Ladies an gentleman, read on to find out the titles of the 10 most disappointing computer games of 2009!"

"Prototype is one of those titles that promised a lot before its release and only half delivered once it hit the streets. On the upside, the complete freedom and utter chaos you can create playing as Alex Mercer is definitely liberating. There’s no moral code you have to follow (which is quite a shock when you try to play without killing innocent bystanders only to realize you can’t) and there’s no sliding good vs. evil scale you have to manage. However, the graphics are a bit weak, the AI ..."

Prototype is an open-world sandbox game developed by Radical Entertainment where you take the role of Alex Mercer. The game is often compared to the PS3 exclusive, InFamous. Is Prototype a worthy game in its own right? Read AAG's full review to find out.

I'm sure everyone must remember Yahtzee's review of both [PROTOTYPE] and inFAMOUS, right? Right?? Sure you have! And I'm sure everyone remembers Yahtzee's challenge at the end of his inFAMOUS review, that both games were awesome and it was a tie as to which was better. Therefore the winner would go to the one who sent him the best picture of the other game's main character in a woman's bra.

Well I certainly didn't expect these devs to actually answer such a challenge . . . did you? They d...

"As a shape-shifting super mutant, players will be able to evolve their powers over time. After collecting Evolution Points, by completing missions, challenges and consuming enemies, Alex can learn and improve a massive number of unique abilities. Alex’s body can transform into deadly weapon by modifying his limbs into wolverine like claws, massive blades, spiked whips and huge fists of stone. Each of the major offensive powers can be upgraded to add combo moves, diversify their usage and impr..."

"How this works: We randomly collected together 100 recent examples of video game box-art all completely unrelated with the exception of one common factor: they all featured a person or people as part of the design. We then looked long and hard at all the examples to find out what types of people are most commonly used on video game box-art. And, by extension, in video games. This is what we discovered. Prepare to be partially amazed by our findings."

"Although it’s nice that Prototype offers so much in terms of combat, there comes a point at which you may ask yourself, “How am I supposed to press this combination of buttons in the heat of battle?” Some moves are overly complicated or difficult to even pull off when you’re not even fighting, and it may have been better if the move list was shortened with only the essential ones intact."

Wasn't actually expecting to review Prototype, but hey, Activision decided to send us copies... a week late.

Well, a review is a review, even if it's a last minute surprise. Check out Neoseeker's take on this open world title that's got the gaming community split in two (not an uncommon occurrence). See the verdict, leave some feedback, business as usual.

The Hype of Prototype has been huge for those wired to the Game Sites.

Loyal fans who have been anticipating this game for years were continuously disappointed by set backs in the release dates of the game, but many game reviews such as this one from NY Daily News have been arguing that this game just isn't that good.

As the war drags on between fans of Prototype who continuously keep reiterating that this is a great game even though Prototype does have jerky controls and a hard to gras...

"[PROTOTYPE], from now on referred to as Prototype, was released by Radical Entertainment on June 9, 2009 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Radical Entertainment is best known for Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, and The Simpsons: Hit and Run. This review is for the PS3 version of the game, which I played through to completion on normal difficulty, completing around half of the side missions, and unlocking most of the powers.

Prototype is an action based open-world superpower game. While some may ..."

"Two games have recently been released that bear several striking similarities. Both of these games are open-world sandbox titles featuring superpowered antiheroes who begin to realize a host of awesome abilities with which to distribute justice and/or malice as they see fit. While they share a lot of features, the two games are certainly distinguishable, taking the superhero model in different directions.

However, that doesn't mean we're not going to compare and fight about them anyway, ju..."

PS3 owners who were all excited about picking up Prototype this week may have ran into a problem...not being able to play the frickin' thing.

Evidently, trying to install it may give you an error message saying you don't have enough disc space, even if you do. The workaround, in the meantime, is to change the amount of space on your HD by 700 MB.

Prototype is the long anticipated sandbox game which puts you in the shoes of Alex Mercer, a shape shifting experiment which can cause more damage in ten seconds than a ordinary man could in a hour. The game has been reviewed and IGN give you their verdict, the score being a average...7.5. The having some good gameplay, ideas and extras, but poor graphics, predictable missions and some control issues dragging it down, resulting in a rather unpolished title.

"The latest addition to our video selection will be my weekly update called 1st and 10, which will showcase the first 10 minutes of the biggest release in gaming for that week. Occassionaly it will feature retro or throwback episodes. So, stay tuned for the weekly updates!"

"With the launch of Activision’s highly-anticipated Prototype drawing ever-closer, Electronic Theatre today received a selection of Box Art mock-ups. While Electronic Theatre has been asked to make a note of the fact that these images aren’t final, the inclusion of a BBFC Certificate suggests that few changes will included in the final design."

"The full opening CG video for the Activision’s highly anticipated game, Prototype, has been released.

Lasting about 3:30 minutes, the highly violent CG trailer gives a good perspective on the games environment, enemies and even storyline."

"While most of you are pooping your pants over APB, I am pooping mine over Prototype. If it manages to live up to the hype, I believe it will be the best game of the summer, and Radical will be one step closer to dethroning RockStar as the king of open world games."

Resumeplay.net brings you a compilation of upcoming games that you should definitely have a look at.

From the upcoming PS3 exclusive InFamous to Wii's first Hardcore FPS since Red Steel, The Conduit.

Click the source and read on for the next 5 big games that you MUST check out! (Some games where excluded as their release dates are not yet determined)

Gamesradar US previews Prototype (due out later this year) for the 360. Though it also comes out on the PS3, this preview is about their experience with Prototype on the X-box 360 (based on the fact it is on the X-box 360 section of their site).

I have to say, the game sounds cooler than ever, and it also sounds like it seems to play well too (Gamesradar seems to think so!).

The Parkour gameplay element reminds me much of Assassin's Creed, except of course, scaled to superhuman powers.

Prototype was just recently announced to come out on June 9th, and Activision has also released the opening cinematic for the game. New York looks completely run down and...well empty. Much like the movie 'I Am Legend'. One can't help but make the connections between NYC in I Am Legend and NYC in Prototype. Either way, they did a good job with it.

Follow the link to view the video.

"Fans of the infamous Alex Mercer should also be sure to check out the newly updated official game website located at www.prototypegame.com to gain access and view newly added game information and content, including the first half of Prototype’s must-see intro cinematic."

Aside from all the chaos and destruction, there is a story to Prototype. Prototype finds you playing the character of man who ha forgotten in past, dazed and confused he finds that he has super powers. Powers that can cause complete destruction and mayhem upon the city. Now he must use his powers to find out about his past, and how he received these powers.

This is a brand new trailer showing off the game in its beauty as well as the story. Follow the link to watch it now!

Blend Games has written a new hands-on preview for Prototype, detailing a lot of the on-screen action, multiple AI functions and a lot of interactivity the game had to offer. The game sounds extremely promising.

"Perusing the assorted New York Comic Con invitations in our inbox this morning, we stumbled across one particularly interesting line among the bullet points in an email from Activision -- a much more solid release date for upcoming T-1000 simulation open-world/action game Prototype. And rather than put words into the company's mouth, let's look right at what came from the press release:

"Hands-on – fans get their first chance to play the highly anticipated open-world/action thriller, PROTO..."

"Our little trip to the future ends today, with the 10 hottest Xbox 360 games to be released in 2009! We have already analyzed the best upcoming games for PC systems, PlayStation 3 consoles and Wiis, so if you didn’t check them out already, now it’s a good time to do so. Otherwise, read on to find out our favorite upcoming Xbox 360 titles. Choosing just 10 games was (just as it happened with all the other platforms) pretty tough, but the list below should reflect the best of the best!"

"This year will be a great one for video game fans, since we’re having an impressive bunch of very promising titles announced and, to be honest, I found it really hard to choose just 10 games since other highly promising titles like Borderlands, MAG, The Agency or Batman had to be left out. (And no, I did not forget about FFXIII which can’t be included since it only comes in 2010). But enough talking! Let’s check out the 10 hottest games to be released in 2009 for PS3 systems."

GamingShogun previews Activision-Blizzard's upcoming Prototype. In the game, you play a man with no memory of what has happened to him. The worst part is that you have gained these bizarre, DNA-altering abilities which make you part creature from The Thing, part Spawn, and all awesome. The game is due out sometime this Summer and was recently saved by Activision after being abandoned last year in the dismantling of Sierra Entertainment .

It has been a while since we have heard or seen of Prototype. Well it has come back and with a bang. This brand new video has been released and it really shows off some of your amazing powers.

Fallow the link to view the trailer.

GameInformer, the popular magazine about all things gaming that has somewhere near three million subscribers, always has a different game on the cover each time. MTV wanted to see if there was a GI cover curse, so they looked back into the past and pulled out magazines from 2-3 years ago.

One game titled Superman Returns didn't so well, receiving 6/10's. That's nothing compared to Fear and Respect, which was at one point on a GI cover, but ended up being canceled!

All in all, the game...

Sierra Entertainment and Radical Entertainment announced their sandbox-style action game will be delayed until April 1, 2009. A statement from the companies reads as follows:

"Sierra Entertainment and Radical Entertainment have made the decision to shift Prototype to launch in 2009...Since its announcement, Prototype has been regarded by many as groundbreaking and taking the open-world genre in new directions, and in the simplest explanation possible, we need more time to deliver the game ...

Gamestop go "On The Spot" with Prototype. Upcoming game from Codemasters. A gruesome and fun looking sandbox game that gives you powers beyond imagination. They talk with one of the developers and show a hands-on demonstration of the game.

We haven't heard much lately about the Game Prototype. But today Gamespot has a preview of the upcoming game. You are an amnesia patient who wakes up to discover you have very powerful powers. One of the powers you get is you can change to any person you want, but in order to do that, you must kill that person. Prototype is a sandbox game that sets in New York.

Prototype's official website has been released. Prototype promises a "vast array of deadly biological weaponry." On the game's website, you'll learn more about his claws and the ability to attack using ground spikes. Also visit the official website's media page, where you'll find a couple of trailers, a slew of screenshots, a bit of concept art.

"Dead Space (Oct 31, 360/PS3/PC)

Dead Space feels eerily similar to Aliens, but the introductory trailer and our first hands-on demonstrated a level of suspense, mood, and intensity we haven't seen in a while. The premise: the entire crew of a deep space mining ship has gone missing, and it's up to you, the sole survivor, to rid the vessel of alien baddies. It should be noted that EA's survival horror only marginally beat out Left 4 Dead (360/PC), the fast-paced Zombie Killer by Valve with ..."

While BioShock scooped the Spike VGA 'Game of the Year' gong, and the likes of Super Mario Galaxy and Rock Band both did well during the evening's awards, the popular celeb-infested event also threw up a raft of World Premiere trailer exclusives, which you can see in just one click via M&C Gaming.

"New York City. A hooded figure stands motionless in the centre of Times Square. It's morning and there are people everywhere. And we're not talking about the usual video game approximation of a crowd. It's a kinetic cluster of bodies merging and stirring through sun-bleached streets. The camera swings upwards revealing vast, intricately-rendered skyscrapers reaching towards a cloudless blue sky, turning white as the harsh sunlight hits their sides.

This is not the compromised parody of NYC..."

A new game by the name of Prototype has appeared on the net, coming to PS3 and 360 from the folks at Radical. The game boosts to have crazy powers and a massive free roaming environment which surpass the 360 game Crackdown.
