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."

As the others have stated, this game has much undeserved hate. I'm not sure why. Most of its flaws can be found in other, much higher budget games. Stupid AI, mediocre combat, etc. I guess people are just more willing to overlook such flaws when a game is pretty. I'm also guessing that most of the haters didn't play past the Saudi Arabia missions and thus missed out on the game's greatest strength: choice and consequence. In AP, your choices almost always have far-reaching consequences and that really makes you think every time you have to make one.

Is AP a fantastic game? No, there are plenty of areas where it should have been better. I can easily point out many flaws off the top of my head. But I can do this with almost every game ever made. AP is better than the sum of its parts but you only realize this if you give it a chance.

It's really a case for showing how numerical reviews are flawed because I can't really justify giving the game higher than the 6 or 7 it got most places, but at the same time it is one of my favorites this year.
