Prototype 2

Prototype 2

May 11

About three years ago, the first Prototype was released - and proved to be a pretty popular game. The announcement of the sequel gave me some mixed feelings thought. On the one hand, I enjoyed the first game, but on the other - I wasn't sure how a sequel could manage to be anything other than a carbon copy of the first game. I wasn't wrong on either count - but the result as a whole was extremely positive. In Prototype 2, you take on the role of Sgt. James Heller - a US Marine. At the start of the game you experience several phone calls between a deployed Heller and his wife, who is telling him about the outbreak of of the Blacklight virus in Manhattan. The authorities there advise her to remain calm and stay home. Heller agrees she should stay put, reassuring her that he will "be home tomorrow." By the time he gets there the virus has spread throughout the city, and his family is dead.

Wolverine #304 Review

Apr 18

In this issue, Lord and Lady Deathstrike arrive at a party in Madripoor hosted by Sabretooth which a bunch of big-name villains have been invited to. Wolverine decides to crash the party for old times sake, and resume the tradition of his annual fights with Sabretooth. While all of this is happening, we see resolutions for several characters that have popped up throughout Aaron's run. While last issue served as something of a finale for Jason Aaron's story on Wolverine, this issue was completely focused on tying up the story-lines for many of the characters we have seen throughout his story - and opening the doors for future stories for many of them.
