A new dev diary for Prototype 2 makes it look more interesting than some of the previous tentrailacle-themed gorefests. The men who speak in it appear to have good ideas about both hunting and killing, and the kind of freedom on offer, even if it will eventually lead to bloody murders in every instance, is something I can imagine myself enjoying. It’s also worth noting that I don’t think I’ve heard a better quote from a developer this year than: “Someone just fell out the sky and landed on a guy and then ate him”. That comes complete with excited hand motions, as you’ll see if you join me below.
The seriousness of the talk combined with the utter nonsense of the game footage is a juxtaposition I enjoy. I particularly like the fact that the “more and more cool and crazy things you can do” culminates in beating up a helicopter, which as far as I’m aware is the second most common activity in the game, pipped to the post by falling out of the sky and eating people.
I look forward to performing both activities at some point in 2012.
