Alpha Protocol has a terrible name and, unfortunately, a lot of editors in the office and many of our readers haven't yet paid much attention to it. I was certainly among the many that couldn't care less when this game was announced or first shown. But that's changed after getting an extensive preview of the E3 build. Three things caught my interest: This is a spy RPG (how rare is that?), it doesn't rely on a morality system for its branching paths and it's uber geeky.
