Is That A Gun In Alpha Protocol's Pocket, Or...

This is disorientating. Much-delayed Obsidian secret agent RPG Alpha Protocol has hoofed out of couple of new videos. Thing is, they introduce characters we were introduced to at length a year ago.

Hmm. While these trailers don’t evidence the calibre of writing we’re perhaps accustomed to from Obsidian, it’s certainly not fair to judge the game on them – what (hopefully) matters is the roleplaying and the spy-harding, not a collection of out-of-context cutscene clips lumped into a Youtube video.
