@Mina as a Mike-girl:
Well Scarlett is certainly the best Bond-Mike girl and SIE is just a awesome bomb of aggressive fun (and testosterone ^^) but imho Mina makes a great Partner for professional Mikes.

@BEES: Huh? "Sold you out" in the meaning of forcing you into Alpha Protocol? Then yes. But she didn't sell you out to Leeland/Halbech or was in any way working with them - in contrary her whole agenda was to investigate Alpha Protocol and then to bring Leeland/Halbech down.

I'm repeating myself here but if you're in a good relationship Mina confesses all that by her own choice. You probably got her clothes off too fast -_-

It seems that I'm one of the more pro-Mina people in this thread but just want to point one thing out again: If it weren't for her Mike prolly would've died.

@jokerwoker:
probably depends on how much Leeland would've though that you could be turned or used a as a tool. In any case if they did leave you alive you'd be working to further Leelands plans and that would be an no-go for me.


Yeah on my first playthrough I didn't waste any time getting in her pants. Second playthrough I actually took the time to talk to her (lol)! And yeah, she'll spill the beans if your understanding about it. Given that outcome, it seems she had no choice but to give up your position. My best guess would be it was an order from Parker or Weyland. The reason she was helping you out from the beginning is because, as she explained,

G22!? I never trusted Albatross! =P Just kidding.

I think one of the main reasons I didn't like what she did to me was; I don't like being used without my knowledge. I can understand her doing what she did but I don't apporve.

The game never tells us who she worked for. It's probably an organization that isn't interested in chaos, even "controlled" or "organized" chaos. The obvious answer she works for someone or some group within the NSA itself.

Cosidering the Gellato dude, she might have left the NSA, at least openly, because the NSA was incompetent.

As a side note, Alpha Protocol is a poor fit for her. She's prefers rules and regulations, but never disregards people. This in-itself makes her life miserable in Alpha Protocol.

if you get all secret info for Mina and complete the dossier, and also interrogate her at the end, it's pretty damn clear she is working for the NSA.

How did you get all the pieces of her dossier?

I think the first piece is when you talk to her when you wake up. The second piece is when you "shoot" Darcy fo her. The third piece is when you ask her about dossier in the briefing before one of missions in Saudi Arabia.

On a side note, my tech points were level 8 and Thorton decoded the Assassination data and not Mina. That was cool.

Yeah, I noticed that too. That's a really clever bit of reactivity.

I also was able to pretend to delete the bugs in the g22 server while leaving a last one, something I was not able to do on my other character that did not have any technical aptitude.

I wonder if other "classes" get reactive moments like these.

They should given the disucssions we've seen in other places on here from Devs. I did notice in my "meet conrad" conversation Thorton said "I'm an operative now, I had to change my 5 year plan after saudi". I expect that if I'd gone with commando or whatever I'd find that he said something else.

I was thinking of the number of reactive elements.
With a tech specialist so far: "Electric fence around a dog kennel" conversation with Parker, "I did evaluation for gadgets" chat with Westridge, the assassination plans, getting Brayko's vault info+ saving ally, bugging G22, chat with Marburg at the café
Only reactivity I noticed for a field agent/spy was the Westridge chat and the Marburg chat and maybe the beginning of the Darcy mission (Investigate weapons stockpile).

Hm, well I had high pistol and martial arts skills for one playthrough, when you meet Championichik and there's that whole

Mike: Is that gold medal real?
Sukov: He won it for boxing
Mike: Cool, I got a couple for shooting and martial arts...

I'm guessing that's a moment of reactivity due to skills..

Another thing that comes up in some conversations is what clothes you are wearing. Surkov being a prime example when you goto meet him after helping him get out of the embassy. If you are wearing utility armor he comments on the number of pockets on the suit. If wearing one of the infiltrator style ones he comments on how surprised he is to see us come up to him so openly and thorton replies stating something about how he should be crawling up alongside walls.

I think there are others that mention it too.

The skill reactivity isn't based on "class," it's based on skill level. I was a freelancer and still got the technical aptitude reactivity.

That's really cool, I haven't seen many other games do that.

I wore my armor this last time but did Rome before Taipei and he didn't comment about it. He complimented me on my job there (disarming bombs, killing Marburg but didn't mention them specifically). When I did Taipei first in armor he said I was conspicuous with my armor on.

IIRC, there's a "Field Agent" option when you try to talk your way past the guards at the Moscow embassy.

You can easily get past the guards. They seem to respond best Suave responses, but all three gets them to let you pass.
