I guess it was only a matter of time before the DLC/nickel-and-diming mentality hit Kickstarter too.

Yeah, who the fuck uses stretch goals?

Er, wait...

The entire post from the poster name down doesn't make sense. zombiefan bashing potentially good/great zombie game stretch goals adding more goodness/greatness. WTF?

Noticed that myslef. I found it quite ironic too.

DLC has been around since the early 90's when it was routine for game developers to add content to their games via free downloadable updates. It just wasn't called DLC back then. I can see having an issue with paid DLC, as a lot of it is of dubious value to say the least, but that's not even remotely close to what's being done here.

Alpha Protocol had the best implementation of choice & consequence of any RPG.

Yep. It was definitely criminally underrated in that regard, though perhaps understandable considering how undercooked the game was overall.
It had a few annoying bugs, like mouse sensitivity issues in the mini-games, but overall it was a great game. I think it deserved a lot better than it got in reviews. I played through it three times in a row when I first got it. Very few games manage to hold my attention that well. The dialog was pretty well-written too.
