Also, if you enjoyed The Ship, you should give Bloody Good Time a try. Hell, you should try it even if you never played The Ship. Definitely worth a shot at $5.
Well, I grabbed it and will see what it's about. I watched the trailer and was no better informed and the screenshots didn't help either. Still, I enjoyed The Ship so that's probably a good start.

Ubisoft completely dropped the ball on this one. The only reason I knew about it was because I occasionally check the Coming Soon section on Steam.

Hopefully being a little more mainstream with the atmosphere will do them good (1920s cruise liners don't really appeal to non-nerds )

Unfortunately, Ubisoft's total failure to market this game means it likely won't be going mainstream anytime soon. Not only did they fail to provide sufficient marketing (they released one teaser trailer, a few screenshots and that's it) but when they did market it, they marketed it as some deathmatch game. I had no idea what the game was about until people who played it told me.

That said, the game has a pretty decent player base on the PC. Enough to find a handful of packed servers at any given time.

Never really understood all the hate for AP. I thought it was a good game and I would have paid full price if Sega hadn't put limited installs on it.

Played this for a bit over at a friend's house. As soon as I saw it I asked, "Is this from the same guys as The Ship?"

I'm glad they kept (and expanded) their game type from The Ship despite it not exactly being a success. It's a genuinely interesting new mechanic. Hopefully being a little more mainstream with the atmosphere will do them good (1920s cruise liners don't really appeal to non-nerds )

Pretty much everything Sega published has had permanent price drops on Steam. They even stuck up a special page about it.

I agree, it's great fun.

alpha protocol had a good story, good quest structure, good dialogs - but the action portions of the game (fighting, hacking, shooting, etc.) were horrible.. seriously
 
Go forth, and kill!

It's a great game, especially at $30. The minor annoyances weren't enough to detract much from the fun dialog and gameplay. I played through it 3 times already. May have another go after I'm done with FONV.
