Not just any assholes, but "assholes of the highest order". Prototype's lead designer, Eric Holmes, thinks that the type of person interested in a game like Prototype is the same type of person that, well... isn't very nice.
That's so true. My girlfriend is kind of a b!tch (and she'll admit that so don't get on my case for saying it) and she loves sandbox games. She always does the worst possible things she can think of.
She sounds very nice.
Who cares if she's mean as long as she keeps you satisfied. Vault Boy could be a real prick too for all we know.
Gee, thanks. For the record I think I'm a pretty nice guy, unlike you.
Yet no one is noticing.
I think the biggest difference is the level of violence, like, you actually tear people apart and spill guts all over the place. Otherwise, yes, it is very much like Hulk, just more "mature". Even so, why does it matter? Don't you ever buy sequels?
These have got to be the best comments i've ever read on N4G =D Bubbles and Agrees for all of ya!!! On topic Well the question is Prototype or inFamous Both look great, and they don't rip hulk off... they just.. borrow...ALOT :P
huh? and what?
"Of course, it could be easily argued that people are assholes in sandbox games because sandbox games are generally designed to let you be an asshole" -Everybody likes open world games, because everybody likes to explore what can be done in a ficticious world, even a**holes. lmfao JOY
i sometimes say the same about plenty games, ever play force unleashed, def reminds me of infamous. there are others that fall in the same boat.
Its like you want to avoid the obvious. The meeting went "hey, we have this game engine, what should we do with it?" "i dunno, make the hulk2?" "quiet johnson! thats too obvious.." Its a blow em up for children who have nothing else to do in gaming this generation, with bad graphics. Force unleashed was a great game, and as as much to do with infamous as bioshock has to do with killzone2. Stop blindly defending everything, especially factual truth. Prototype advertises by saying "pwn everything!" literally.. Much like the hulk smash em up, you just blow stuff up until you get bored. and seeing as how this unremarkable developer hasn't done anything well... remarkable, prototype looks to be the same nonsense that the media latches on when they think of over the top meaningless violence, then wraps up all games under the same umbrella. You know, the same people that think manhunt is just like Shadow of the colossus. Its garbage gaming for kids. If you're 13 great, have at it. but dont pretend that this game isn't an exact carbon copy of the hulk, minus the OMG make your model turn into another low polygon model. gigantic yawn. The only reason anyone is talking about prototype is because: YOU HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO PLAY. Prototype would be in the recycle bin if there was a Gears3/Halo4/Masseffect2/forza 3/pgr5/splinter cell/alan wake/huxley/warhounds/ anything else in the current events, and you know it. But for some people, its all there is to do until E3.
@casey, Damn, dude...you really made me laugh with that one! Just chill down a bit before you kill someone from over laughing! lol
you sure do b1tch a lot about things that aren't even out yet. Calm down dude, I'm sure it will be a blast to play.
I think there is something wrong with that logic, Force Unleashed was released awhile ago before infamous, therefore wouldnt Infamous be taking from Force Unleashed?
That's why it's called "Prototype", because it's the prototype for the next hulk game.:)
good news for ps3 fanboys. that seems to be all they are.
lol, that was really lame.
Cookigaki likes open world games and Cookigaki is very nice person. Cookigaki loves everyone, especially hot women.
Yeah, but if guy movies have taught us anything it's that chicks like assholes.
I don't like when chicks like literal assholes. Cosmopolitan is an evil magazine for suggesting it.
Cosmo magazine suggests that girls surprise their boyfriends by a quick poke in the butthole. They say dudes are too afraid to ask for it but they all love it, which is totally wrong! Do not slip a finger in my butthole!
....... You're joking, right? I hope you're joking. That's terrible advice. At the very least they should ask first.
No, he's not joking. Cosmo has actually suggested that several times over the years. I remember saying something to my boyfriend at the time and he told me to cancel my subscription! So yeah, I'm guessing it's not good advice and I'm glad I didn't just try it like they said.
Yeah, I'm gonna weigh in on this one also and say "Ladies, don't touch my asshole."
AHAHAHA........thats the funniest thing ive read today BUBBLES TO all of you!
Ewwww..... Cookigaki only accepts girls putting fingers in butts if the butt is on another girl... and the butt is really a vagina... and the finger is really Cookigaki's penis... and both girls are hot.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say this thread has gotten a little off topic.
You people act like you've never heard of the prostate
I'm well aware of the prostate. So are you saying a dude should let another dude give him a blowjob? Just because it physically feels good doesn't mean you want to do it. Fingers in the butt is simply outside of my comfort zone, and I REALLY don't think girls should go around poking buttholes without asking.
Rimshot FTW!!!! You guys need to relax a bit.
I went out with a girl once who's holes were both upside down and round the wrong way and I never suspected a thing.
What I got from this story is F*ck Cosmo!
The problem with saying games reflect your personality is giving games alot more credit for morality than they deserve. You choose to be evil because of some personal character flaw or whatever is totally a bunch of baloney. Gamers make gaming decisions because they want to see how the game changes or rewards them with that decision. You push over the bus full of kids because you are playing the baddie and want to increase whatever bad meter you have or you just want to see the game blow the thing up.
Yes, Cookigaki agrees with this. Cookigaki does bad things in games just for fun and curiosity, not because Cookigaki really wants to hurt people.
Cookigaki is clearly nuts, sorry to say it mate, you crack me up anyways so keep it up, but... seek help man, haha. On topic: I'm a bit of an asshole, but I'm not interested in this game at all... So they're missing the target audience, at least in my case.
Whatever happened to Pizzagaki? Did he lose all his bubbles for being a rabid fanboy? I lost a bubble the other day. YOU CAN'T HANDLE DATRUTH!!!!
Pizzagaki is a cheap imitator and needs to die. Pizzagaki appeared on n4g a few weeks after Cookigaki and wished to be as awesome and have as huge a boner, but he is not and does not. Cookigaki hates that people think Pizzagaki is related or alt account! Please spread word that Cookigaki has no relation to Pizzagaki!
Here's a story, Target Audience thinks Prototype developer is an asshole.
Well, he got the game some more attention at least. No press is bad press, as they say.
And on the T Shirt It says "I Bought Prototype for my Xbox " "And i'm an AssHole "
That joke sucked. Try to be funny next time. You know..you spamming your usual BS around N4G is pretty damn funny especially when you think you made any sense at all. Oh so funny!
It should sell very well on 360.
Do you like fish sticks? Do you like fish sticks in your mouth? I guess that makes you a [email protected] fish. Kanye baby
are the gamers that bought gears and play kllzone? Ouchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. As the great Kojima once said, your anal is measured by the size of your fist.
MicroSONY4life how very childish to use namecalling. Xbox live is full of hate FACT. Deny it. I ask all that play xbox live to think about about their experience the good and bad. The number 1 complaint I have for live is jerks to say it nicely. A lot of people ruin it for everyone. What happened when we used to have fun? I beleive I rather no one have a headset. I know mute. whatever. hate as usual!
i have to make a guest appearance with these bad boys!! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
i hate fairys so i will hunt him/her down and perform an irish dance on its head while listening to this!! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Wasn't the guy singing in that video Quark from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine?
he is very sexy!!
If the target audience are a**holes, I'm one of the biggest a**holes on the whole planet earth.
LOL! Would it be a bad thing I've been planning of getting this game day one? Bad thing to say, but I think I know what he means.
You're a mutated freak capable of "eating" everyone in the world much less the city, and your only goal is to find out why and who made you. Of course you're a d*ck. The only right thing for a good guy to do is off himself.
And they're proud of this? This is just more ammo for anti-gaming media. They'll say things like "the gaming industry now purposely targets and caters to abrasive and potentially harmful individuals"
More like xb!tches..
I'm glad they created the Open Zone :)
wats dat meant to mean!!
im sorry im going on personal experience, 100% of the whiny man childs who act up and teamkill while playing online are all americans who just take the piss out of a british accent so yes, most american gamers are assholes
@MGOelite epic post and spot on! bubbles
Hmm... Quite frankly, I don't understand why anybody who is interested in this game would put up with being called an a**hole by the very people trying to sell it to you. I've had numerous reasons in the past why the game didn't look all that appealing to me, but to know that there's really no way to take the moral high ground really puts me off to the concept even more. I always thought inFamous looked like a better open-world super-power videogame, and now I'm even more convinced because in that game you have the choice at every turn to do good or bad, and that those choices drastically effect not only your character development but the world around you. That's something that appeals to me. Being told that I'm supposed to play a game like an a**hole, and that in turn I am, as a human being, an a**hole -- that's not something that I appreciate.
I know I've heard some really bad things said about fanboy in the dev community but never have I seen any one say any thing like this in public with his name being attached to it. Some one send him some 80 pound platinum balls for doing this. He will need to sell them after he get fired. I've never liked games where the fun was in being an A$$. I mean seriously if that's the case why not make a fanboy sim for each system? Man developers are getting way more frustrated with gamers these days. It's really sad because they promote this type of stuff.
Thanks for the catergory 'cancles pre order'. Nah, I don't care what some guy thinks. if he wants to ship it to people in prision that's fine by me, but I'm buying it.
i'll make sure i won't buy it then and give you my hard earned money.
I'm Buying Infamous
So you'd rather be a loser than an assh*le then?
He'd rather have a storyline, non-repetitive gameplay, more moves, more space, more interaction, better graphics, and the ability to make moral decisions. You don't want ANY of that then?
