2019 In Games (and Screenshots): a (random) end of year review

Recommended Posts

I think my favourite Obsidian game will always be Alpha Protocol. Great writing, great characters and the one game where I felt Obsidian were doing completely their own thing. Kotor II, FONV, Mask of the Betrayer, they all were standing one another's work. Pillars was its own thing, but a homage to what had come before. Outer Worlds too often reminds of FO or ME or even Borderlands. But AP is just AP.

I'll agree to that, even though some of the things in that game are quite horribly buggy it feels fresh and interesting. And I do love the dialogue stance system they had, it's pretty damn cool. And the reactivity... Mmmm...

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

Did it ever come out on PC? I never played it.

KOTOR 2 or NWN2 for me. NWN 2 is extremely flawed but I still like it.  I'm a sucker for Forgotten Realms.

EDIT: Nevermind, I see it was removed from Steam.

It did come out on PC, but I seem to remember reading it was pulled from sale because of music rights.  The Steam page still exists, but it is no longer for sale at the request of the publisher, apparently.

There are some copies on Amazon, though.

Yeah, if you own it you own it. If not, due to music rights you can't get it anymore :(

Damn Brayko listening to Autograph.

Yeah, shame Sega couldn't find a way to turn down that radio.

Been a while since I played but that is the only licensed track in AP, isn't it? Can't remember anything else.
