Obsidian Entertainment's tweet yesterday revealed that you can actually finish the Alpha Protocol (Xbox 360, PS3, and PC) game without killing anyone. Intriguing, indeed, especially when you take into consideration the fact that it is a stealth-RPG title. You know, one where you sneak up on people precisely so you can kill them without much of a fuss?
Then again, come to think of it. That only makes the game even more challenging, don't you think? How indeed do you get from Point A to Point C when Point B is a gun-toting villain with a shoot-to-kill order once he spots you? Not that it hasn't been done before. Solid Snake took his handy-dandy, reliable cardboard box because of this strat to the gaming Hall of Fame, and even Faith in Mirror's Edge tried her leaping stunts at it too. But to complete a full game without absolutely killing knocking anybody down? That I have yet to see.
How do you think this is possible? Sound off in the comments below.
