as the title says?

Care to elaborate, or are you somehow expecting everyone to be mind readers?

Don't know, I couldn't understand anything from the trailer. Fast cuts, stroboscope, Eminem, Pink, the fuck?!
But I'm always in the mood for some more Cruise and Wilkinson. And it's from the director of The Iron Giant!

Could you expand upon this for those of us who don't know what you're talking about? Do you mean they're all ripping off each other in that the spies are all getting burned by their former organizations? Because then they're all ripping off the Hundred Years War.

No, similar themes for sure, yes, but more especially MI ripping off alpha protocol by using a similar name "Ghost Protocol" for their being "burnt".

And Alpha Protocol ripping off burn notice in the sense that it being about an agent cut off from the agency, and his name is VERY similar to the main character of Burn Notice.

And all of them have black hair. Though I guess MI had that first. :D

So what does this grand theory have to do with PC games exactly?

A tenuous link to Alpha Protocol. Not the right place for this topic, though.

Wasn't the first Mission Impossible about Cruise working outside the system after being framed also?

I recall liking that film on account of the slightly off-kilter atmosphere it had. Less interested in the generic Hollywood explode-a-thon model the sequels appear to follow. The Kremlin macguffin is intriguing, I admit. The rap soon fixed that, however.

The reason its in here is because its PC game related, in this case Alpha Protocol, which I liked quite a lot, despite being a tad broken.

But I wont mind being transported to another forum, if someone with mod status needs so.
