Guyver!? Is That You?

#1 Posted by PureRok (4235 posts) -

So, I just got the armor upgrade in Prototype and the first thing I thought was "It's the Guyver!". Observe:



Here are some reference images for those of you who may not know who/what the Guyver is:




Did anyone else who saw this think this as well? I mean, I know it's not completely the same, but you have to admit that the similarities are uncanny.

I see where you're going, though I don't necessarily think that was what they were doing.  Maybe, though.

More importantly, that first screenshot looks like this big buff bio-armored man-beast is wearing a little white skirt. Yes. That is of importance.

Reminds me more of the Nightshade armor I used to use in Oblivion.

@DrRandle: Haha... I bumped the button when I hit the screenshot, which caused that to pop up.

I can't help now to shout "GUYVER!" whenever I turn on the armor, as is done in the anime/movies. Like David Hayter in the second Guyver movie.

@kitsune_conundrum: I don't think so, sadly.

haha this is actually the first thing i thought of when i first saw the armour. Not seen Guyver in years but there is no denying it looks very similar.

@PureRok: That thing is badass.

The first thing I thought about when I saw that armour is actually this Tsutomu Nihei manga:

A one specific character in it had pretty much the exact same power which looked somewhat similar.
On a totally unrelated note. How freaking weird is that Guyver's ultimate(?) power is flashing you with his yellow bio boobs. Ah Japan. :)

Yeah, I was wondering why it looked so familiar.

I was thinking more along the lines of a Berserker from Gears of War.
