WIN! Prototype On PS3 Or Xbox 360

CODWAW_ps3_PKG_gm_09We have two more copies of Prototype to give away today. Find out how you could win.

Alex Mercer, Prototype’s protagonist, is a shape-shifter. We wanna know what you would choose to shape-shift into with the aim of becoming the “ultimate weapon”. Give us your answer in 25 words or less, along with your console of choice and your email address so we can contact you if you win.

We have two copies again to give away today, one on 360 and one on PS3. Meanwhile, here are yesterday’s thematically similar winners:

Wednesday’s PS3 Winner
Paul W – I would morph into Evil Scissors, the pair your mother always eluded to every time she caught you cutting up things and scalded you with the line “Not with the Good Scissors!”

Wednesday’s Xbox 360 Winner
RobotFart – I would shapeshift into a pair of scissors attached to a pair of legs so I can constantly run around and cause untold destruction.

Also, quick mention to “jimmy” whose entry below made me chuckle:

jimmy – I’d shape-shift into a an omnipotent bipedal creature with the rule-checking capabilities of David Wildgoose; the cute, unsuspecting aesthetics of a butterfly; velociraptor and chainsaw versions of Chuck Norris’ hands; an aerodynamic shark fin so I can fly; an inbuilt jetpack for no reason; and a “Chk Chk Boom!” ultra combo finish. With all these powers combined I will be a weapon of mediocrity, not destructive enough to kill you, but annoying enough to put suicidal thoughts in your head.

Check the original post for the full terms and conditions.

    a lightglobe
