Alpha Protocol Patch, DLC Status

A patch for Alpha Protocol is in the works to update the espionage-themed RPG, reports GameBanshee, after speaking with Obsidian about support for the game at E3. "We wanted to release something fairly quickly based upon some feedback we were getting," Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart tells them. "I think [SEGA] wanted to take a different approach by gathering more information over a longer period of time and provide a patch then. That's what we're figuring out right now." Urquhart also answered a question about DLC for the game, which does not give much cause for optimism: "I don't know if [SEGA is] talking about that at all yet. I can say that we're not working on any DLC right now. We'd love to, but we're not."

Unlike either of those games, this games flawed parts never combine to make a decent title. The shitty voice acting, embarrassingly bad combat system and caveman stealth never come together and become enjoyable. This game is a design disaster that deserved to be better and it's a shame it never will be.
i felt this way at first and was ready to put it down for good, but once you get past the intro levels of saudi arabia i think the game really comes into it's own. i feel it's a combo of the "raw" gameplay without skills or abilities fucking sucks mixed with saudia arabia being really poorly designed and not the best showcase for the game's strengths.

i also thought the voice acting was very good, the cast has several industry vets. thorton himself annoys me sometimes with his utter blandness but he fucking aces some fantastic lines. no different than shepard from mass effect, really.

it does make me wonder what the FUCK obsidian was doing with the 10 month delay. were they working on it that whole time, or just sitting on it to avoid competition? and if they were really working on it, how big a mess was it before? this could have been your mainstream fucking breakout, you stupid bastards.
