The folks at Sega were kind enough to invite us here at Sega Nerds to participate in a roundtable conference call with some of the developers of Alpha Protocol, the upcoming 3rd-person action-RPG from Obsidian Entertainment. I had the chance to listen in as they went in-depth on a lot of the features and development issues they

Yeah, that's true

 

Then again those were copy&paste questions

I have a couple of questions that weren't covered by this roundtable.

 

 

First how do the locations work? I assume there's a hub for each city you go to, so how do things work to get from the hub to a mission location? Is there an area to walk around in for each city apart from the mission areas or does the player just jump from mission to hub and vice-versa?

 

Another thing is about the ways in which playing one mission affects other missions. Does it mean you could get a piece of intelligence in one mission that makes another mission easier, like providing character info on a contact or finding a detailed map of the location where another mission will be set? With this in mind, is there a lot of optional intelligence gathering in the game? I mean like info the player can use to better prepare missions, and also to flesh out and add depth to the plot.

Both of those questions are answered (although the second only partially) in the pdf. Under Game Structure.

you're right about the first question(sorry about that...) but not the second one. In the second one I'm basically asking for elaboration on what's said in the PDF.

Well, IIRC they talked about doing some smaller missions may have big effects on more important quests

 

Say, you deal with gun merchant and in the next main mission enemies have worse weaponry due to you taking care of their main source (naturally I made that up)

pretty close to reality though.

Let me get back to sleeping. I'm tired...
