Default Alpha Protocol

Alpha Protocol goes gold!
http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/news/54...ocol-Goes-Gold

If anyone hasn't been following this, its a spy rpg/shooter.

Found the developers over here drinking, got to be the most awesome dev team ever.

Yup, I'm sure a demo will come out any day now.

Supposedly its suppose to play like a mix of splinter cell and a heavy shooter but with deep rpg elements.

Really interested in it but my budget is gonna delay its purchase.

not sure what to think about this game, i was really interesting in it before. but seeing some of the recent videos i have to say it looks a bit stiff, and voice acting sounds like a bad movie.

I like Obsidian, I'm getting it... the idea of a James Bond RPG appeals to me, and PC Gamer has a lengthy playthrough preview this month and they generally praise it.

Plus babes.

I am getting it since I have a lot of Amazon video game credit to use to purchase it. It's the only thing I think that looks good enough to buy that is coming out before one of my game credits expires.

I was interested in it as well... but Giantbomb just did a quick look and the shooting sounds really bad.

He's the worst reviewer on the planet.

Still, it does seem to be disappointing across the board so far... though Gamestop mentioned that the graphics issues are sorted out somewhat on PC, and the mini-games less annoying.
