InFamous, Prototype Devs Think Drag Is All Rainbows And Unicorns

For all his sound and fury, Zero Punctuation's Yahtzee couldn't decide on a winner between this summer's two rival superhero sandbox games, inFamous and Prototype, so he challenged the developers to present the opposing game's hero wearing a women's bra. Both companies took the bait, with Sucker Punch showing the softer side of Prototype's Alex Mercer and Radical Entertainment presenting a somewhat more flamboyant version of Cole McGrath from inFamous. The result?

It's a close call, but I'm going to declare Sucker Punch the winner by one lovingly-rendered pair of breasts. Also their unicorn is a much prouder, mightier steed, and Alex's expression is delightfully coquettish. Therefore InFamous must be the better game. Buy InFamous. Prototype's still good, though. Buy it as well.

Check them both out below. The rainbows I get, but are unicorns some kind of new drag staple? I'd probably also call Sucker Punch the winner, although with the breasts and relatively tasteful outfit, it almost seems as though Alex is transitioning rather then just playing dress up. As for Cole, someone needs to teach Radical about waxing and tucking. Maybe both developers should have spent a little time watching RuPaul's Drag Race. Now let's wait and see if either gets offered as a DLC costume sometime down the road...

Is that a tattoo of Marilyn Monroe on Cole's left thigh!?

I died when I saw this over at escapist. Gotta love ZP and these two games.

I saw the video where he challenged them... I never thought they'd actually do it though xD

I actually prefer the Cole picture, though I agree inFamous is a better game so glad they won with the Alex picture.

While I totally think the softer image is a better image, I'm totally digging on the bob mackie-style feather collar. Damn, I love me some bob mackie.

This story confuses me. He says Sucker Punch (who made inFamous) won, then compliments the proud steed, perky breasts, and coquettish expression of Alex (the protagonist of Prototype), then says "therefore", inFamous is the better game (even though he just complimented the other illustration). Right?

@What
Because the developers sent in pictures of the other game's main character. The developers of inFAMOUS sent in the Alex picture, that's why they won. n.n

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
