Prototype 2 pre-order bonus from GameStop kicks ass (literally)

Radical Entertainment has announced a new move for Prototype 2, but it's only for ass-kicking early birds who—quite literally—want to kick a little ass in the upcoming sequel. Introducing the Bio-Bomb Butt Kicker, Sgt. James Heller's new pelvic-shattering ability—and yours free with every Prototype 2 pre-order from now until April 23 at GameStop.

The move is described by Activision as an alternate version of protagonist Sgt. James Heller's Bio-Bomb ability which, in its slightly less embarrassing form, allows players to infect enemies, toss them away, and watch from a safe distance as the victims sprout tentacles and gobble up everything within radius.

“Butt Kicker is a fun twist on Heller’s already over-the-top new Bio-Bomb ability,” explained Radical Entertainment head Ken Rosman. “Rather than just throwing enemies once Heller has infected them with the Blacklight virus; Butt Kicker allows Heller to drop-kick punt them across the map, turning enemies into projectiles that rain down devastation from above.”

Sure it's no nut-punch, but swap out the jacket for a purple hoodie and this could have easily been a scene from Steelport. Not that we're complaining; Sgt. Heller looks like he needs a little more fun.

Prototype 2 ass-kicks its way onto PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on April 24 in North America, and April 27 in the UK.

    You see, this video is probably the main reason why I didn't get Saints Row. Because I can fuck around with ridiculous stuff like this, but I can also engage in what seems to be an interesting, serious story about revenge (I also love the pureness of the revenge, from the looks of things, salvation doesn't look too likely).

    If it were literal, the pre-order bonus itself would become sentient, grow legs, and actually punt a donkey or mule. Goddamn it, GR. This is why you never use the words "Literal", "Irony", or any variations of them without proper understanding of their meaning.

    The pre-order move it's in itself a literal ass-kick within the game. they are not wrong, you jsut used the term TOO strictly. smartass McNitpick.

    Ass is slang for butt. It literally means a donkey or mule.
