Watching the trailer for Prototype 2's new "Excessive Force" DLC, it's not hard to see why so many ignorant teachers, pundits and parents dismiss all of gaming as hyper-violent drivel.

Of course, it is hyper-violent, but that doesn't mean it should be dismissed. What's the expression? There's nothing like "a bit of the old ultraviolence".

The "Excessive Force" DLC comes with the Viral Infector grenade launcher, the Shockwave, Chaos Creator mode and Medusa's Wrath force multiplier powers, and Armored Heller, Agile Armor Alex Mercer and Zombie Mercer custom character skins.

It's out today on XBL and PSN for 400 points/$4.99 respectively, so pick it up and give that ultraviolence a spin. Let us know what you think in the comments or on Twitter.
