[PC Game] Prototype

Written By Arya Kurniawan on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 | 8:28 PM

Prototype is an action-adventure open world video game developed by Radical Entertainment and published by Activision. The game was released in North America on June 9, 2009, and in southwestern parts of North America as well as Oceania on June 10, and was released in Europe on June 12.

The game is set in New York City, where a virulent plague known as Blacklight is spreading through Manhattan. Those infected are mutated into hideous monsters of varying form, with an uncontrollable urge to kill all uninfected life-forms. At the center of it is the protagonist, Alex Mercer, an incredibly powerful shapeshifter with no memory of his past. Parallel to the game's storyline is the ability to play the game as a sandbox-style video game giving the player freedom to roam Manhattan.

Many reviewers compared and contrasted it with Infamous, another action-adventure open world game released one month prior to Prototype, by Sucker Punch Productions which features a superpowered protagonist with developing powers in an urban world. However, the gameplay of Prototype is very similar to The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, also by Radical Entertainment.

Alex's primary superpower is his ability to shapeshift, changing his body to suit his needs. Going hand in hand with this power is his ability to "consume" others, absorbing them entirely. This process allows Alex to quickly regain health by absorbing the biomass of his enemies. This also allows him to take on the forms of the enemies he absorbs, thereby allowing the player to move about the enemy as one of them. The disguise will only last as long as Alex remains inconspicuous. Alex has incredible physical strength, and will kill most humans in a single punch. He can perform various melee attacks without shapeshifting, as well as more gymnastic moves such as air combos, sliding along the ground using any humanoid enemy's body, and a high-speed rolling cannonball attack.

Alex can also transform parts of his body into a selection of martial implements acquired over the course of the game, either as purchased upgrades or being given them. Offensive powers include the large and powerful Blade arm, fast razor-sharp Claws (which can also erupt large spikes from the ground), the telescoping Whipfist, Musclemass that augments his strength, and the slow but powerful Hammerfists. Defensive options consist of a large shield on Alex's left arm for blocking ballistic attacks that needs to regenerate after excessive damage, and full body armor that exchanges agility and speed for toughness in hand to hand combat; both will allow Alex to plow through most obstacles when active. Vision modes include thermal vision, which allows Alex to see enemies through smoke and other obstacles at the expense of a decreased vision range, and Infected vision, which highlights those infected with the BLACKLIGHT virus as well as military units. Both vision modes muffle all of Alex's other senses, such as hearing, in order to concentrate on his sight. One defensive and offensive power may be active at a time, and using either will negate Alex's current disguise. In addition to his own abilities, Alex can take the weapons from defeated or absorbed enemies. These include automatic rifles, machine guns, grenade launchers, and missile launchers. He can also seize control of military vehicles, such as tanks and helicopters.

Alex's most powerful attacks are the Devastators, which require Alex to be in Critical Mass - either a state of near-death or the exact opposite, having excess stored biomass and increased health. These include the Tendril Barrage, which fires impaling tendrils from his body in all directions, the Groundspike Graveyard, which erupts massive spikes from the ground all around Alex, and the Critical Pain, which fires a single beam of hardened biomass from his hands to severely damage a single target.

[PC Game] Dead Space 2

Dead Space 2 (stylized as DEAD SPACE2) is a survival horror third-person shooter video game developed by Visceral Games and published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.Set three years after the events of the first Dead Space, the game follow's protagonist Isaac Clarke's fight against a new Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl, a space city above Saturn's largest moon. Unlike its predecessor, Dead Space 2 has a multiplayer mode, pitting human characters against Necromorphs across the Sprawl.A Collector's Edition is available for all three platforms. The PlayStation 3 Limited Edition includes Dead Space: Extraction as a PlayStation Move compatible title.

Synopsis :

The game begins in an asylum on the Sprawl, a densely-populated space station surrounding a shard of Titan, one of Saturn's moons. Currently, the Sprawl is now host to another Necromorph outbreak, which has led to much of the populace being slaughtered. Isaac Clarke has no memory of the past three years, having just been awoken by Franco Delille (protagonist of Dead Space Ignition); however, Franco is killed by an Infector Necromorph and immediately mutates into a monster himself, leaving Isaac to escape on his own. He is later contacted by Daina Le Guin, a woman claiming to have a cure for his "condition". He is also contacted by fellow patient Nolan Stross (a main character from Dead Space: Aftermath), who endured a treatment similar to Isaac's. Stross claims that they can destroy the Marker, which Hans Tiedmann, the Sprawl's administrator, forced them both to rebuild after finding Isaac adrift. Ignoring Stross, Isaac fights his way through the city (still filled with survivors trying to escape the Necromorphs) to reach Daina. Along the way, Isaac experiences hallucinations of Nicole, which become more vivid as "she" tries to deter him from his task. Upon his arrival, Daina has Isaac restrained, and reveals herself as a Unitologist sent to "recover" Isaac, claiming that they need him to build more markers for spreading Convergeance, a event foretold in Unitology; before they can leave, however, a security gunship kills Daina and her associates, allowing Isaac to escape.
Stross contacts Isaac again, telling him that the Marker is located in the Sprawl's Government Sector; he reluctantly decides to trust Stross, as destroying the Marker is the only way for him to survive. As he makes his way there, Isaac comes across Ellie Langford, a CEC heavy equipment pilot who eventually joins their mission. As they travel through the Sprawl, Tiedemann throws several obstacles in their way to hinder their progress. Later, Stross' dementia worsens, causing him to stab Ellie's eye out with a screwdriver; she survives, while Isaac is later forced to kill Stross in self-defense. Afterwards, Isaac comes to accept the guilt of being unable to prevent Nicole's death, causing the visions to become benign.

Upon reaching the Government Sector, Isaac sends a protesting Ellie away alone on a gunship, saying that even though he couldn't save Nicole back on the Ishimura, he can still save Ellie. Once inside, he sets the Necromorphs onto Tiedemann's forces near the Marker chamber. When Isaac reaches the Marker, he finds it surrounded by Necromorphs, which triggers Convergence. With the vision of Nicole guiding him, he comes upon the NoonTech Diagnostic Machine, a machine that unlocks the blocked Marker-infected parts of his mind which was used on him and Stross prior to the events of the game, which "Nicole" claims will help him. He then fights his way to the Marker, where he encounters and kills a nearly-defaced Tiedemann. As Isaac approaches the Marker, "Nicole" suddenly pulls him into his own mind. There, Isaac encounters the parts of his mind affected by the Marker and "Nicole", who then reveals that the only way to make the Marker "whole" is to absorb the body and mind of the one who created it—in this case, Isaac himself. After a lengthy battle, Isaac is able to destroy "Nicole" and rid all traces of the Marker's influence from his mind, destroying the Marker in the process.

Waking up, Isaac slumps to the ground, ready to accept his fate. As a last act of desperation by Tiedemann's security forces, the station's power core starts a detonation countdown. Suddenly, Isaac receives a call from Ellie, who crashes the gunship through the ceiling. As the room collapses, Isaac makes his way onto the gunship, and they escape from the exploding Sprawl.

In a post-credits scene, an audio transmission is heard between two people: an unknown subordinate and his ranking superior (known only as "the Overseer" from one of the text logs that can be collected during the course of the game). The subordinate relays that Titan Station (which was Marker Site 12) and the Site 12 Marker have been destroyed. The Overseer replies that the other sites will then have to "pick up the pieces".

Mark Zuckerberg wrote Facemash, the predecessor to Facebook, on October 28, 2003, while attending Harvard as a sophomore. According to The Harvard Crimson, the site was comparable to Hot or Not, and "used photos compiled from the online facebooks of nine houses, placing two next to each other at a time and asking users to choose the 'hotter' person".
