totallyps3.com who must call themselves that because they totally have no idea what they're talking about, have totally missed the boat on Alpha Protocol with their preview:
Normally, when you think of MMOs, you don't immediately think of international counter-terrorism and espionage...
Sega and Obsidian Entertainment want to change all that with their new Massively Multiplayer Online game, Alpha Protocol. Veteran RPG developers Obsidian, the brains behind titles like Neverwinter Nights II and Star Wars Knights of the Republic II: The Sith Lords are no strangers when it comes to producing in depth character development and customisation placed in enthralling and immersive game worlds. So if anyone can carry off the daunting task of producing a spy-based MMO, they can.
In the sprawling PS3 and PC MMO, loyalty carries a price and no one knows this more than agent Michael Thorton. You play the young agent cast out by his government, and Thorton is the only one with the information needed to stop an impending international catastrophe.
Alpha Protocol is not an MMO... or at least, I didn't think it was. But mind you, this isn't the first preview to mention it so maybe there's something Obsidian are keeping back. You can follow the link to check out a few screenshots too.
