The Backlog: Alpha Protocol
Alpha Protocol is a game that has always intrigued me with its premise and it's ambition. It sounded like a dream combination: Obsidian's talent for writing mixed with a cocktail of Bond, Bourne, and Bauer. Despite my love for RPGs, I unfortunately passed over the game at it's release due to the poor initial response. I decided to give the game a shot after reading a couple of interesting threads about it.
The Backlog: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
Overwhelmed by its award-winning predecessor and entirely overshadowed by its underwhelming successor, Obsidian's Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords holds a strange position within the pantheon of Star Wars video games. Released in 04' and only recently accepted into the Star Wars catalog on Steam, KOTOR II's anomalies make it one of the most fascinating products of the license to go back to and dissect the grizzly tone that is pervasive throughout Obsidian's glimpse into the Star Wars universe.
