Over the coming weeks and months, however, Sega and Obsidian will finally be introducing the world to their upcoming PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 RPG via a series of video developer diaries, beginning this week with the first installment explaining the basics of what Alpha Protocol is all about and how it came to be. The developers cite Bourne and 24 — two of my favorite franchises right now — as sources of inspiration; that’s enough to get my interest piqued!
