Alpha Protocol Dialogue Choices: As Thrilling As Gunplay

Speaking with Gamer’s Guide to Life, Obsidian’s Chris Avellone has divulged details of conversational urgency in Alpha Protocol.

“During focus tests, we found that we were getting an adrenaline spike from dialogues on a level comparable to that of a running gun battle,” Avellone said, referring to comparisons with Mass Effect 2’s dialogue wheel. “NPCs won’t wait for you to make a choice, the dialogue continues along at real time, and there’s no going back, which makes the conversations much more urgent.”

In the same interview, producer Matthew Rorie claimed the game will keep things “pretty tasteful” in the all-important sexy time department. Sad news for fans of shameless vulgarity.

Alpha Protocol is scheduled for a May/June release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
