Prototype 2 looks strung out in "The Power of Tendrils" video

There are few careers where owning a pair of tendrils is considered an advatange, but for mass murdering super mutants, they're almost a professional necessity. Watch now as Prototype 2's lead killer James Heller uses his to get the job done (and the some) in Radical Entertainment's enjoyably disturbing “The Power of Tendrils” video.

“Dismemberment is probably my favorite [ability],” says a grinning Dave Fracchia, Radical's VP of technology. “With tendril power, you can actually rip an enemy in half. Dismemberment never felt so good.”

Never, Dave? Really? Ignoring the fact his colleague just admitted to engaging in comparable amounts of dismemberment, senior producer Paul Pawlicki adds: “The amount of fun that you can have in this sandbox area of just string cars up and stringing people just forget about the game. That's my favorite thing by far.”

You too can experience the raw, meaty powerof tendrils when Prototype 2 launches next year for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

    Looking at the video, we have grown men saying stringing up bodies, adding damages, dismemberment, favorite parts and fun parts....and they say those things with a satisfied smile on their face...eeewwww We have really sick men making these games and yet the media all worked up about teenagers and video games. Anyway, since I'm an adult too so I can't wait to tendril some soldiers.

    Okay then... Don't let the Japanese modding community know about this. Someone had to say it, no I'm not proud of myself. Ewoks, I can understand your point about shredding shit with a buddy, but doing it by yourself is quite rewarding too.

    The thing my friends and I hated about Prototype 1 was that it didn't have co-op. Could you imagine how fun it would be to tear up NYC with your friends? If Prototype doesn't have this, I might save my money for something else.
