You can use them just fine if they are used. They can all be reset to the starting level... blanking out the stats, etc. And their owners can be changed even without resetting them. Ingenious and very user friendly.

Only thing I'm not sure about are those web code cards, but you don't really need to those at all if you attach the Portal of Power to your PC.

Man some serious bitchiness in here. Prototype was good fun and this looks like it fixed the things wrong with the original. There are no other open world games where you can just devastate anything and get involved in these kind of high destruction s uperhuman battles.

But it must be boring so let's go back to COD *eye roll*

Well I dont play CoD either. I just thought Prototype was shit. Its not some weird conspiracy or anything, it just wasnt a good game. Got bored after a few hours of essentially doing the same thing with a horrible storyline and a horrible character.

I think that's a good description of CoD actually...

I had fun with Prototype despite some glaring flaws, it had a lot of interesting game mechanics. Just traveling around was a blast. I like what I have been seeing of Prototype 2 and am looking forward to it. I hope it does well.

I liked the first one a hell of a lot, I plan on picking this one up.

Pretty please?
Now we know why publishers hate used game sales: it pisses off their stockholders.

I'll buy this game used.

That said I wouldn't really compare their scale, maybe the idea. In comparison Infamous is pretty low key.

Interesting. I really liked the first Prototype, and hated InFamous. It just felt generic to me. Here, go take this gang out, and then go back to your base on top of a building and report everything you did. Bleh.

Prototype > Infamous.

That is all.

Just Cause 2 or Saint's Row 3 kinda fall into that category as well.
