    I just picked up a PS3 and was doing some research on upcoming video games when I stumbled across this...

    Their website has a counter, 10 days!?

    I'm actually intrigued, it has some uniqueness to it.

    I dunno, I have doubts. Looks like it's just GTA/Mercenaries with a God of War type battle mechanic. I could be wrong, but I'll wait until some clear gameplay footage is released or better yet some decent reviews.

    I thought this game was canceled.

    Cool that it wasn't.

    Looks like what Assassin's Creed should have been. Hope it's decent.

    Hmm, i hope theres more than god of war like hacknslash there, i like the overall style and intensity though. If the gameplay keeps somewhat high speed/quick combats and the player isnt some non stoppable godlike regenerating badass muthafucka all the time this might just be something intresting.

    Looks like crackdown, and crackdown was motherfucking cool. ( If a little boring once finished). I'll probably buy it.

    Any idea if it will come out for PC? I've been following it for a while and it looks like it will hit that "good hulk game" craving with some ultra violence added for good measure.

    I can see you enjoy your spot of the old Ultra-Violence? ;) I'm sure it will probably come out for PC same time as consoles, if it doesn't I wouldn't hold my breath.

    looks Switchblade-y.

    and looks like someone's got a grudge. :P

    Looks like it has some potential to be awesome but I'm skeptical. Most games with super powers turn out pretty poorly or, at best, average.

    I have to say that it's probably one game I'm excited about the most right now. The dude is badass and pissed off, a perfect combination.

    To be honest, I'm more excited about DR2 (Dead Rising 2).

    I'll be in my bunk.

    so, it's been out for a while and seems fun enough. but is it worth enough to plunk down the money for it? or should i give it time for it to go down (i've got time and i figure it'll go down after the summer).

    I'll just quote myself from the 'what are you playing now' thread:

    Cliffnotes: massive destruction fun, good atmosphere, plotholes, mediocre graphics. It's also somewhat repetitive, but still good fun.

    I really want to check out prototype but I'm broke, well, not broke but I've got a few things I need to do before I can start spending money on games. Maybe next month after my vacation I can pick up a copy.

    It's cliffsnotes. :wink:

    It looks pretty interesting and I don't mind the graphics as long as the art style is good and the fps rate keeps up.
    The problem is it's all brown with generic soldiers and the generic anti hero with his generic voice and generic clothing.

    I do like the big battles though, looks like fun to join one while pretending to be a soldier.

    Or slaughtering the civilians on the street and throwing cars around while pretending to be an old lady. That's fun too.
