Alex Mercer just won’t die. At least that’s what I took away from an introductory video shown before a demo of Prototype 2 at a pre-PAX Activision event. In the video, the military group Blackwatch explains its with Mercer, basically that it thought him dead twice and wa proven wrong both times. So perhaps it’s [...]
