Obsidian confirmed that Alpha Protocol will in fact be receiving a patch. While talking about potential DLC for the game, Obsidian responded by saying it doesn't look likely.
Lulz. That was an abomination. TGSI
To fix the major issues the patch will have to be about the size of a retail game. Well...actually...it will have to be a completely new retail game.
As soon as I finished the first mission, I returned it.The combat was plain awful. Took 4-5 bullets to kills someone, and it's one of those games where the "super agent" has to rest for a few seconds before each shot because apparently these silenced pistols have the recoil of a deagle. I applaud whoever enjoyed this game.
I've actually enjoyed the game. And now they're going to fix up the small little problems it had? That's pretty awesome. but I do fear that it's a bit too late, as the gaming community read 3 reviews and followed them blindly. Anyone who's actually picked it up and played it with an open mind has found themselves enjoying it.
There were a crap-load of issues with the game, but it was still enjoyable. Especially once you got up in levels in some of the skills. Honestly, nothing more bad-ass than either going all stealth with ridiculous pistol skills or going all tactical with ridiculous assault rifle skills and grenades up the wazoo.
i agree the game is enjoyable if people actually tried it out
I havent had a chance to play it yet, but its something i wouldnt mind playing. Obsidian usually has a pretty good track record.
Beat the game twice myself. Sent it back and now they want to patch it. I have the worst timing somethimes lol.
I was one of those had had all the will to get Alpha protocol, and then read the poor reviews. Nah... gonna get Red Dead now instead!
Hopefully most of what the game needs is in that new patch, and no dlc is needed to make it better.
It's already $40 at Gamestop new. I don't think there is a patch out there that can turn a piece of crap into a good game.
that's really it's only problem other than the graphics not being that great but I can look past that.
Yeah but I've seen someone play it and the hit detection is horrid. I don't think you can get that right by patching it.
Could be tough.
I am around half way through and had no big glitches or bugs. Good that they are releasing a patch though. I like the game, It has little annoying parts but overall It's better than a lot of reviews said it was. I do like these types of games though.
Heck if Epic could fix Gears 2 and Bethesda could fix Fallout 3 these guys should have no problems fixing AP. It is a good game people that are complaining really have double standards when it comes to gaming.
