I still remember back when cheats and alternate costumes were in-game unlockables, not priced DLC =/

Posted by EXCellR8

Haven't played yet, but this will surely make the game more fun! Call me a monster if you must but my favorite thing to do in Prototype was slaughter innocents... FOR HOURS!

That time, my friend, is long gone. It sucks, I know.

I still remember back when Crackdown was released 5 years ago, and people said that exact same thing.

Oh how I miss the draw to beat the game different ways and in certain order just to unlock stuff. (Resident Evil 1 and 2 anyone?)

Where's that fucking time machine? I hate this age of gaming.

That really didn't make the game look any better, and it seems like some of those powers are just slightly reworked versions of what's already in the game.

$5 for three new abilities and three shitty skins? Taking this game back to GameStop. Don't get me wrong, it was fun and I loved Prototype 1 & 2, but this is some fantastically shitty DLC.

Posted by Orange_Pork

@murisan: So... You're taking a game you bought back, because there's some additional content for it that you don't have to buy? Interesting.

Posted by hbkdx12

Given how extremely similar the gameplay and powers were to Prototype 1, a lot of those powers should have been implemented into the default game to begin with.

Oh I can tell from the caption it's another Alex's post.... NOT.

People just have to type a comment like this whenever Alex does anything don't they? You can thank me, I've done it for you in case you were thinking of doing that.

I don't know what's there to complain when the game basically let's you use every skin of every npc in the game :/

Posted by PoisonJam7

So now Heller can manipulate Gravity and Time, even though there was no mention of the infection causing those types of effects in the game before..

Oh well. At least the Infected Heller skin looks pretty cool, and the Boomstick looks like a nice nuke gun. Even though those assets are already on the disk to begin with.

@themangalist: Are you seriously going to defend this? Besides, I'm not exclusively just talking about Prototype 2.

Posted by murisan

@drewmaw: Seriously. I'm gonna get the most fecking money I can since it took about a week to Plat and the DLC is heinous.

Posted by CharAznable

Damn, dude. They really did not do much to improve upon the first game. Prototype was pretty fun with the potential for a great sequel, but this is reminding me of Crackdown 2.

Posted by altairre

Hey guys, I heard this game is kind of dumb.

Posted by Pobearo

This looks like something that used to come as cheat codes. Now it costs money....

Posted by CitizenJP

I love Prototype 2. I beat it twice so far. Glad to hear there's a DLC. <3

Yummylee, those days may be long gone, but themangalist is doing his best to bring us back there with his 90's humor. Thanks, themangalist. Feel free to bust out some "Yo Mama" jokes while we crank some Nirvana.

Once again I can only think about how much my 15yo self would love this game. Then again, my 15yo self was buying Limp Bizkit CDs, so what did I know?

Maturity is forgiving yourself for ever owning a Limp Bizkit CD.

We'll never stop complaining about it. BECAUSE EVERYTHING HAS TO REMAIN THE WAY IT WAS WHEN I WAS A KID.

Posted by jaks

having a hard time giving a shit about prototype's lame protagonists. make another Incredible Hulk Ultimate Destruction game or get out.

Posted by ptys

Why they promote DLC so close to a games release is beyond me?.. At least let the thing reach an audience before you begin the over-saturation!

There's probably a graph somewhere that shows that unless your game is Call of Duty, the majority of people who buy DLC for your single-player game do it within the first month the game is out or not at all. Publishers assume that gamers will blindly not sell their game back to Gamestop if there's DLC that comes out during about an 8-week window after the game comes out.

What they keep forgetting is that most people don't really give a shit about 3 "powers" that are just variations on the game's gravity settings, and some stupid reskins.

@BisonHero: Yeah, it begs the question of why they spent time on this DLC rather than perfecting the actual game itself as it's not reviewing very well? It's almost like DLC should be worked on after the games a success, not before.

Hyperbole and capslock? Fantastic troll post, would reply again.

Posted by inkyspots

This should of been released at half the price they are charging for it. The stuff looks cool, but it adds nothing to the game of surface stuff.

I wonder who determine the price for these DLC's

Posted by buft

When we made the game there where some bugs with gravity, we ironed them out but now you can buy them back. this is kinda what that looks like.

Posted by sixpin

@inkyspots: It also disables Achievments/Trophies and challenge missions as long as you have them turned on.

Posted by MeatSim

That weapon at the end is a bad frame rate waiting to happen.

Posted by Romination

@Yummylee: It takes me hours and multiple brain-storming sessions to come up with these things. I make sure it's personalized.

Posted by Dynotaku

So they're selling an edited .ini file for how much?

Posted by capthavic

The only thing that actually interested me was the thermobaric launcher and that alone is not worth $5 to me, The other stuff is just meh and kinda pointless.

Posted by dragonboss

@Yummylee: Not priced if you bought one of the first copies, radnet limted edition it is called. Then you get all the content free.

Posted by dragonboss

This game is just pure mindless fun. These add-ons are a laugh that you shouldn't really have to pay for, but MS apparently does not allow free DLC for games (vi wikipedia here and here) and they should have been available on day 1 if it was not on the disc.
