New Prototype 2 video captures a majestic human projectile in gorgeous slow-mo

We’re dying to see more of Prototype 2, so it makes us truly sad pandas that it, nor anything from Activision, was available for ogling on the PAX East 2011 showfloor. This soothingly silly video, featuring Sergeant James Heller hurling a fool soldier for what seems like miles, almost makes up for the lack of attendance… but then the ambiguous tag of “Landing in 2012” brings that anticipatory sting right back. Boo hoo… we want it now, and all that. Still, this is cool:

Oh, and I perked up immediately, since the video above reminded me that Jackass 3D just came out on Blu-ray, and I can finally see one of the world’s funniest “thing flying in slow motion” videos ever committed (needlessly) to High Def film. Hey Prototype 2, there's still plenty of time to add dildos, right?

    I had a dream similar to this about a week ago. Except in my dream I was thrown from a car and the music was a Beethoven sonata (not Moonlight).

    At one point during the journey, the soldier must've thought, "oh damn, this doesn't look so good." Haft way into it, "nope, it won't be a broken leg, arms and anything else." "This is definitely going to be major," at the beginning of his decent. Seeing the ground, "good bye world." But still, what is the deal in the end. Was it a soldier or Alex. Also, FAIL!

    @moon4567 Yeah buy the first one, it's probably pretty cheap now, and while it has it's faults it's lots of fun :D purely for charging around the city causing chaos!

    Prototype is my favourite game and my favourite thing to do in this first one was hold lb button down and then it goes slow mo while the icons appear i think it would be really awsome if they had a slow mo button in the second game
