Dutch gaming website GameCloud.nl has written a special about inFamous and Prototype. Which game will be the best and why? They look to developers history, special powers etc.
where is my michael jackson popcorn eating gif...
Shouldn't they wait until Prototype is released, or at least until they review it?
Sensationalist headlines and knee-jerk analysis is where it's at. Did Sony sleep with MS' girlfriend? Does the Nintendo Wii cure or CAUSE cancer? Will Kojima's next game be a DS dress up sim? I can't stand HHG, but the man seems to be at the forefront of a growing trend of conjuring stories out of pure conjecture. EDIT: And personally, Infamous seems more polished and less generic than Prototype by far. But really I'd have to play both to make a substantial evaluation, and seeing as how neither has been officially released, articles like this seem a little silly.
LOL aww man i couldn't have summed up gaming journalism better myself But yea kinda stupid to compare a game just released with one not even out yet. They both look alright (pickin up infamous tomorrow). Only minor gripe i have (and i mean minor) is that in the preview vids of prototype it seems like a bunch of the main characters animations are reused from the HULK Ultimate Destruction game (which was a pretty fun game) We'll have to see if that was jus for preview build or not tho
@1.1 Someone with a common sense i love it. Have a bubble.
Chris, What the hell does HHG have to do with this? This kind of journalism was here long before HHG and will be here long after he's gone!
It's perfectly fitting that I mention him. 90% of his articles end in question marks for Christ's sakes. Like it or not, he has developed a reputation for EXACTLY this type of baseless comparison/ speculative journalism. That's his trademark, that's why people like and loathe him (I'm not a fan myself, but I have nothing against the man - he has to pay his bills and work just like anyone else). I wasn't insulting him, it's how he does his business. Just like Howard Stern pushes his message with boobs and profanity. I'm not upset by coarse behavior, Hell I even indulge in it from time to time, it's just business is all. And again, HHG is directly associated with the type of journalism that I was referring to; it seemed like an appropriate acknowledgment in the course of conversation. Peace.
Nobody cares and many are getting both games sh!tdisturber.
The only people who care about this comparison are 360-only fanboys, because PS3 owners will be able to try out both games and come to their own conclusion.
You got it all wrong. It's the PS3 owners that should care because if they can only get one game this summer and it's between prototype and infamous, they can have these comparisons to help them out in not buying the inferior superhero game. 360 only owners doesn't have a choice so all they can do is buy prototype and stfu.
i think me and Cajun Chicken are the only ppl on this site who thinks Prototype is goin to be just as good if not more fun then Infamous. And btw infamous, aside from KZ2 is the best game out this year
Played the Infamous demo. My verdict is that it is worthy. I'll be getting it when it comes out. At the same time, I think Prototype is more powertrippy and over the top, but I only have vids to go on. So, which one is better? Niether. Who cares... they are both games that are probably worth playing, and that's my scale. Binary scores are better. Edit: Shut yer trollin yap StephanieBBB. I got a PS3 explicitly to play the great games that are PS3 exclusive. The cost was justified. But I still play most multiplats on my 360 because... well, because I don't have to justify myself to snarky dipshits on the Internet.
Considering how much reviewers bring up the small graphical problems in Infamous, Prototype better get laughed out of reviews with a five. For an open-world game, Infamous looks incredible!
well we're three then. I also think that prototype might be better than infmaous. anyway I'm buying both I guess and I'll see for myself
having had infamous for two days now I can say that this is what GTAIV SHOULD have been. It is a VERY fun and engaging game. That being said I have NO PLANS to pick up prototype as I can only stomach one open world game at a time. NOW THAT BEING SAID I think the console with both games wins.
Thats site is complete trash. They pick infamous has a better game cause they like the dev wtf ? They didnt touch gameplay, control, story, sound, replay or how fun the game is. seriously who buys a game cause it made by EA or THQ ?
Haha, they look objectively to both games, this is not an article for fanboys but for people who can't decide which game to buy.
The difference is that Infamous has a demo, and Prototype does not. It's better to wait for a demo comparison. Both games are worth owning by the looks of it.
Well I say I'm getting infamous, but Prototype is going to be more fun. Mutated creepy alien virus powers vs. electro-man = MCAVP FTW! ^_^
"Ultimately, so the infamous big winner,"
Yeah, if we look to the points given inFamous is the winner. But in the conclusion it says that both games are good and they have both great quality. So in the end both games are a welcome addition to any gamers library.
If you have PS3 that is...
'but none of the games will give you a miskoop do'. That's right, you heard it from Gamecloud.com first, you can not get a miskoop do from either of these games. Which leads me to my next question, what the hell is a miskoop do? God I love my browser's translations
Miskoop = 'Cat in the bag'/Bad investment
ill be buying both i think.
I agree, sir. I will be picking up both.
Yep me too if Prototype gets good reviews.. Tis the season to be powerful
Yep yep, i already have inFAMOUS SO ill be picking up Prototype for the 360. Gotta give love to both worlds. And on a different note DAMN DO NOT believe what the haters are say about infamous the game ROCKS! On the graphics front Demo Vs Retail,Cole has better textures and most if not all the jaggies are gone making the game look that much sweeter. So far im doing the side missions and picking up dead drops. Im gonna TRY to pass the game on good Karma i say try cause everytime i get myself into a fight against the Reapers there always seems to be casualties these civis should know better and not get in the way of my lightning blasts.....lol...thank god there is a heal ability.
There are too many games coming out for me t buy them all. I have to prioritize.
No, no, no. No Prototype vs inFamous but Prototype AND inFamous both gonna end in my games library. Although I'm gonna get Alex for PC, sharper textures, aye?
I agree, sir. Gonna get Prototype on my x360 and inFamous on my PS3. My PC isn't nearly good enough to run any games, now a days.
i know which one i will like best. BUt i will get both because they look fun to play.
Prototype vs. HULK. These games are developed with the same engine, both take place in NYC, coincidence or laaaazy? you decide and both have helicopters and very similar mechanics. I watched both of these vids at the same time and I even think they reused the sounds from HULK in Prototype. One things for sure, if you loved HULK your gonna loooooooooooooove Prototype. http://www.gametrailers.com... http://www.gametrailers.com...
Damn, didn't notice before, they look much the same man! Okay, Prototype is much more spectacular but in basis it is the same mechanic.
Prototype is the HULK with a facelift. The sound in prototype are rehashed sounds from the HULK as well. They just took the HULK and made it better which is fine I guess.
I never played Hulk, but I think it's good that Radical have an original IP now instead of using a license, this means that Radical don't have to be afraid to take Prototype into different directions in the future as they have no red tape stopping them from doing certain things with the franchise, unlike most licensed superhero sandbox games.
That just makes prototype more Generic :\
I don't know why people really care. It's not like prototype is an exclusive so it's one vs the other.
I was going to do something like this for a N4G blog post once I played both the games. I'm a fan of both games though and I have pre-ordered and will be playing both this summer.
LOL " I personally would still choose infamous, if only because it is a PS3 exclusive and has been developed for the PS3 by a reputable developer." PS3 fanboy? He's got the talking points of a 12 year old PS3 fanboy.
If you read the whole article (preferably in Dutch) you can see why I come to that conclusion. It's not a fanboy thing, i don't even have a PS3 xD
What does your off-topic SPAM have to do with this article? You posted nothing constructive; instead, you decided to waste two of your bubbles on a crybaby fanboy rant. How pathetic you are...
@Why dis "No one that has had "real exposure" with both games in the media thinks Infamous bests prototype." Except a small site called IGN then... you obviously haven't read their previews of Prototype and Infamous.
cumon man 3 years of trolling with different faces doesn't get boring for you does it. Still playing NPD over games i see. Anyhow If prototype manages to score close or better than infamous has then ps3 owners are doubly lucky. I can replace your 'only' with a 'and' or an 'or'
the Invisible Walls crew on GT reccomend inFamous over Prototype as well.. do you ever get tired of making sh!t up POG?
They're the only ones that have no choice. Infamous already succeeded
...Why are you still on this side? Did you even read the article? What in the world is wrong with you?
Nobody in their right state could take the amount of dissing Why Dis/whatever avatar he's used has been getting over the years. My guess he is really f**ked up masochistic individual in real life or he works for Microsoft PR, because seriously how much discrediting abuse can you take?
The demo alone was so amazing that it has sold the game to MILLIONS. I guarantee it. This might be the PS3s Halo, it's seriously the best demo i ever played and one of the biggest as well. The Burnout Paradise demo was huge as well. Sony wants their games to sell themselves by word of mouth but great demos would do a better job. Everyone likes open world games so it'll do better than KillZone 2 and the fact that controlling the character makes you feel like a badass helps to, something ,for example, GodOW evokes. M$ fans like to play sales so lets see what happens with this title. I'll wait for a Prototype demo to pass judgment on that game and if none comes out then i'll read reviews and watch videos and decide if it's worth the purchase. It looks good already but if it somehow gets mediocre or bad reviews i don't mind waiting till there's a price drop.
Why does there have to be all this Prototype vs inFamous BS I'm sure both games will be great there's no need for all of this at all. Though i have to admit I am jealous of Ps3 owners. As they do get to play both game's while us 360 owners (I'll be getting a Ps3 sometimes this year so I'll get to play Infamous eventually) will only get to play Prototype. While i can see the reason why people are saying Prototype is better because they only get to play that one and not inFamous (jealousy i believe it's called) there's still no need for any of this. Be a gamer not a hater.
Well said, i agree with you for the 1st time. I hope it's not sarcasm :)
Aaah, you'll get Crackdown 2 sooner than later. As a PS3 and 360 owner I don't get the arguing over Infamous and Prototype on the PS3, sure I like Sony's exclusive developers, but I won't block off any multiplat devs on my PS3 for the sake of not being owned by Sony. Just think; You'll get Crackdown 2 and we all know how insanely entertaining Crackdown was.
Nope it's not sarcasm d0nT wOrrY I'm just tired of hating that's all. I've decided to just enjoy games no matter what console they are on.:) @Cajun Chicken I have the 1st Crackdown but i haven't played it yet :o too many game's to play including a lot of Ps2 games like Rogue Galaxy and Persona 4 i need to finish. But I'll get around to Crackdown eventually and if i find it good I'll pick up the 2nd one.:)
I think you'll really enjoy Crackdown, one of the very rare exclusive games on my 360 I wanted to have the choice to play on the PS3.
People can take you seriously and actually have a decent conversation. It feels much better, doesn't it? And I completely agree on how stupid these comparisons are. We go from comparing the same versions of multiplatform games, to comparing different games on different systems. What the hell is wrong with this generation?
Uh well yes. The same way 360 only users get to play Mass Effect 2 and PS3 owners doesn't. Or Splinter Cell: Conviction etc Thats the way how it works. Its why I got a PS3 just or LittleBigPlanet. I played the inFamous demo just yesterday and while the aiming feels allright (I saw the early gameplay footage and the guy seems to have trouble with aiming) it certainly isn't my kind of game. Not a GTA/sandbox fan that much so I guess Prototype also won't be my thing. But well. You don't have the time to play all and overall the 360 is still the better choice, for sure if you look at the premium online features. One thing is for sure, anything better then a Wii, its only for the diehard Mario/Zelda fans and rehashed old stuff, not for any new IPs scoring good as on 360/PS3.
X360 used to be the better choice but that was like 2 years ago... Ps3 has the most exclusives plus its reliability, wifi, free online, blu-ray, browser, Home, streaming capabilities, DvD upscaler it only makes everything even better!
I actually agree with you as well. Both will be good games and I'll probably get bother as well.
because infamous sucks, no multi, no mic psn sob's. psn so lasttttttttt gennnnnnnnn grow up cookie, ya last-gen online is frying ya brains! only on last-gen ps3!!!
Infamous looks to have much more depth than prototype. Their are plenty of games where you just smash everything for example every hulk game made by the same people that made prototype.
lol u don't have to be jealous. I have a PS3 and even though I haven't played Prototype yet, it looks like its the better choice as far as freedom and the variety of things you can do. I'm stoked that Infamous is getting great reviews, but Id be surprised if Prototype isn't right up there with it as far as reviews.
I can buy both, but, I'm getting inFamous next Friday and Prototype when there's more of a lull.
I'm getting inFamous Tuesday.
Me too, i work at 9 am tuesday morning and i'll be picking it up then. I havn't been so excited for a game in years.
If prototype is really good , the only winners will be those picking up both Infamous and Prototype . If you got no ps3 , i wont call you a loser , but still you're missing out good stuff .
its people like you that cause dumb arguments! both games will be great!
LOL. Is there anymore of that?
@kb8mvp81- I never said neither would be bad...Just adding humor. Way to be a buzz kill. @Cajun Chicken - Yeah a simple search of "Alex Mercer" on deviantART should allow you to bring up some pretty funny stuff, heres another humor filled related picture. Ironically if they ever fought that would be the outcome.
That was pretty funny!
