This was unbelievably hilarious. Mad kudos to the developers for truly unleashing their artistic fury upon one another.

Just rewatched the prototype review, and noticed that in the credits he said "It doesn't have to be a woman's bra, as long as it is sexy and humiliating".

anyway, just a thought.

I can't what's more hilarious: that the studios actually took Yahtzee's challenge to heart, the pictures themselves, or the fact that NEITHER studio's picture actually had the character wearing a bra.

> and run another tie-breaker based around, say, which team sends me the most money

I rofld

LOL now lets never mention this again agreed?

Ok... that is amazing =P

i think this is fantastic, not only that we see ben coming out as someone that companies not only respect enough to watch each week, even though we all know theyll ignore him and release garbage anyways, but that hes encouraged two companies that we would all tihnk would be rivals to actually work together in some odd fashion and have some fun with rumours about the games being so close to one another, i say congrats to ben, and congrats to radical and sucker punch

and i want DLC of those costumes, mostly the infamous one, cause thats the balls

Oresum.

Yahtzee eats lions.

...I'm astonished?
and a bit disturbed.

Cole McGrath's picture just makes me feel ill...
I have to go sit down or something.
All that hair and cross dressing makes me want to hide under my bed for a very long time...

However I'm astonished that the developers made the effort, I have the utmost respect for them for actually paying that close of attention.

In my opinion the "hairy call-girl" is so grotesque that I'm surprised it didn't win. Though, I have a feeling that it will get its fair share of use on the Internet. I mean, what fanboy cant resist posting a sexually confused version of a protagonists from a console exclusive. Its just begging for a place in some fanboys blog, right under the title: "Is Sony a Whore?".
Disturbing pictures aside, I think Infamous is a "better" game, maybe not as "fun" as Prototype, but better.

Regardless, I need to go wash the "gay" from my eyes.
It burns...

Er...

I'm still not sure if this is real, but it seems to be a fact. Holy shit.

These two tie for Developer of the Year in my head.

I was utterly convinced that only one team would take the contest seriously and that team would win by default. Alas both team's submitted something, so I was wrong. I'm surprised how detailed they are.

I don't think it's so much ignoring, it's just quite hard. If making awesome games was easy, everybody would do it =)
(+ that many things are subjective of course)

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Child bearing hips! I love it! ROFL.

When Yahtzee announced that at the end of his review, I know this was going to happen. It's still funny that they actually did it.

This is just fucking great.

Seems like Yahtzee does in fact have some pull with the game studios

Yeah, there's something very cathartic about this. It somehow justifies all the relax time i've wasted following video game news and squabbles.

pull or no, a lot of people in the industry probably watch - and completely love - yahtzee's reviews. this response seems like, at the very least, an acknowledgment of his fantastic humor and keen insight.

Indigo_Dingo:
Both companies should put out special editions using those pictures as cover art.

If they did that, every brainless organization for the prevention of one thing or another would be all over them. Everyone from FOX to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving, fucking crazy bitches tried to make GTAIV an Adults Only game because you can get drunk in it. Seriously.). They'd probably get shut down. I know your comment was meant as a joke, but I just felt I should point out that even though it would be funny and awesome as hell, there's people stupid enough to bash them for it.

His fantastic humor I'll grant you, though I find keen insight might be a bit much. He does make a few valid points, but it's not always on point. While it is nice to see a reviewer get away from the media hype and actually review a game for what it's worth, he does send out his own personal grudges straight into it. Its nice to see professionals against the mainstream love of gritty realism and appreciate new and experimental design forms.

Interesting to see both companies compete like this, though. Still makes me think that the lovable swearing Australian actually has truly impacted the game studio community. I daresay the next time it happens will draw in even more developer attraction and--hopefully!--competition.

That. Was. EPIC!

*hugs Yahtzee*

What you mean they actually care what gamers/game critics think! Also this whole sequence of event leads me to think I have fallen into a parallel universe where gaming is relevant, and horses ride people... bad though.

Wow, that's so incredibly cool.
Seriously, who would've thought they'd actually do it.

Huge thumbs up to both of them.

well that just made my day!
lol

Yahtzee you charasmatic stallion!

Does the influence of Yahtzee know no bounds? Only one way to find out. You need to make even more ridiculous requests.

epic win....

Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this picture?, he applauded Alex and gave the award to Cole, was this on purpose or are we having a "who can render the most disturbing image" contest

Awesome, yet disturbing.

Oh, damn, those were a lot better than I first pictured them XD Too bad I don't have a ps3, Prototype for me, I guess

Yahtzee has some funny influences.. Funny HA-HA and uncomfortably funny too.. However, 10 out of 10 for funny HA-HA HA-HA. Very good. But next time, ask for the most money first. :)

Yahtzee Croshaw:

Yahtzee decided which game is best - Prototype or InFamous - by judging pictures of the games' main characters wearing women's lingerie. No seriously.

Well ill be damned, they actually did it, the sick dickheads.

Surely Alex Mercer wins because he's actually got LOVELY BREASTS and an alluring pose. I call shenanigans.

He gave the award to the pic of Alex, which was made by Sucker Punch. They are creating pictures of the characters from the rival games.
