The submission from the Prototype devs that Yahtzee considered looks suspiciously similar to some of the concept art from Fable 2... is Lionhead moonlighting as a mercenary character-debasement service?

Absolute, undeniable, Grade A, Over 9000 internets of win.

oh dear ... Alex just earned even more kudos points now :)

And with this, my day is complete.

I really didnt need to see either of these pictures, especially radical entertainment's becuase frankly, crossdressing is disgusting and i guess yahtzee wanted to see how far they'd go to prove who is better but...seriously ugh

I'm never going to look at a Vegas showgirl in the same way again

OH DEAR GOD MY EYES, WHY CAN'T I STOP LAUGHING

HAHA. Nice to see the developers with a humorous side. I chuckled a lot at this, and that's some stunning artwork coming from both teams; I especially loved Mercer's pose.

The infamous fanboys are gonna be pissed.....

My life is complete.

This is genius. That is awesome. This is disturbing. This is so many things.

Fucking epic. XD I'm so glad I have both these games now. Despite the fact that my retinas will be scarred till the end of my life, this has got to be the awesome thing I have seen/heard of.

The problem here is though that the bar has been set.

Is this going to become a regular thing?

Will this be regular occurrence in ZP? I don't think so there aren't that many games that share the same level of rivalry as inFamous and Prototype. So I dough Yahtzee will hold such a competition again.

I cannot believe they actually did that

This was epic and creepy as hell. xD

I agree with Yahtzee you sick, sick fucks!

I have a lot of respect for these companies now.

haha this is great

that is just wrong so very very wrong but funny but i have to think that you have made the right decision the infamous team although had the upper hand with the fact that unlike Cole the dude from Prototype can change his FUCKING shape they're fore i believe that this would ahve been an unfair right between the two teams

If he can convince game developers to do this, what else could he do?

What the hell!? I am at lack of words.

Pretty sure this has more to do with both developers having great senses of humor than with Yahtzee's overwhelming persuasive power. :)

Persuasive power. Think about it. InFamous and Prototype were released to coincide because they were de-facto 'rival games'. Hence Prototype being so unpolished and lacklustre.
Point is, this could have been another opportunity to gain a really weird upper hand..

And Yahtzee has admitted that Steam sales figures for Painkiller peaked after his review. So..I'm not sure where I'm going with this..><

I could not agree more, this is sheer brilliance and InFamous is the rightious winner. The cheeky face Alex had did it. I can't believe they actually did this, it's fantastic. I now need a PS3 with InFamous.

Yahtzee, you are an opinionated force to be reckoned with in the gaming industry.

dogstile:
oh god, yahtzee, i'm so glad you did this right now

on a note, is it just me who thought that prototypes devs made something more disturbing, and infamous devs made something more attractive?

I think they were competing for 2 different things entirely. Prototype went for humor, making a pale, flabby, and horrifically exposed Cole, while inFamous went for a teasingly cute hermaphroditic Alex...with male face intact.
Prototype played fair, making a piece that's a hilarious slap in the face to their rivals, but inFamous played dirty and smart...they know gamers are suckers for sex appeal.

I surprised they not only actually made the pictures but that they actually watched your review and took it seriously. 'Oh not that guy with a hat reviewed us and couldn't decided if we were better than that other game, lets pander to his desire to get a non existent prize.' Seriously I doubt Zero Punctuation actually helps or hinders anyone's games sales, other than a few people who were curious, like I bought Saints Row, because he said it was so much better than GTA, and it was but never mind. Zero Punctuation to me has always been a humorous little someone showing one mans opinions regarding the games he plays and it certainly gets this site more traffic, but I've never considered them to be serious review that would actually mean anything. He's like the AVGN or TGWTG, entertainers who enjoy ragging on something or other but who's opinions don't really affect the industry in which they review.

You keep contradicting yourself it's not even funny.
Seriously, just stop being contentious and admit you love him just the same.

this is fucking awesome. Hooray sucker punch!

Let's all give 'em a big round of applause for being such great sports and playing along then!

if he has the power to make devs do this.. imagine what ELSE he could do.

wait this actually HAPPENED? cor!

it is nice to see designers taking this much interest.
though i still think Prototype is better, simply because it's the only on i've played

...no, that means that inFAMOUS is still the better game, as you have no reason to doubt his opinion.

Okay people, if you haven't played both, you can't disagree with him. I haven't played both, but seeing as I agree with him, thats alright.

no my opinion must be right due to my ignorance!

I liked Prototype more, but that's fucking hilarious.

That was... disturbing... creepy... and epic. Good show from both companies for actually doing this, gives everyone a good laugh. I agree with Yahtzee on the winning pick. I'm not too amazed that they did it, I can imagine a group of creative games designers looking at this on the internet, getting in touch with their rivals and then deciding "what the hell, lets do this."

Bayonetta, Dantes Inferno, Darksiders and God of War III do.... As do Forza 3, Need for Speed: Shift and Gran Turismo 5, and Heavy Rain and Alan Wake. However, in all three cases the better one is obvious from space (God of War III, Gran Turismo 5 and Heavy Rain, duh). Plus, you can't exactly ask th makers of Bayonetta to try and debase their character, it wouldn't work, the character has no dignity to begin with.

I was massively unprepared for this. XD Supurb!!

Yay! Men rule the video gaming world! Both pictures are ugly and breasts don't do anything for me, except force me to buy a bra for job interviews, but kudos to both companies willing to dive into Yahtzee's sick and twisted mind in a good natured way. And also, to prove if you give anything big breasts and a tight shirt, men salivate and become mindless putty. Glad us women are still in control.

(removes bra without taking shirt off) Now, where's my drink, my big stud!

wow thats very very sad funny and disturbing yes lets NEVERbring this up again
