Alpha Protocol Dev Diary: 'Your Weapon is Choice'

A new developer-driven trailer for Alpha Protocol, Obsidian Entertainment's upcoming super-spy RPG, provides us with a fair mix of talking heads and gameplay footage.

A range of topics are discussed, including the design of main character Michael Thorton, favorite secondary characters, as well as some light info about some of the gadgets at Thorton's disposal. Based on the footage, it seems as though Obsidian is once again borrowing some pages from the recent Bioware recent RPG design playbook -- namely action-based shooting, robust conversation options, and decisions that impact how the story plays out.

Previously subject to a major delay, followed by some leaked negativisms about the game's quality, Alpha Protocol is finally poised for a May 28 release on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
