Any thoughts on Alpha Protocol 360 vs PS3?

Being able to get a few extra hours at work I'm thinking about caving on a new name.

Digital Foundry sadly didn't do a head to head on the game so any thoughts would be appreciated. :-)

In for a Dante's Inferno. I really enjoyed the demo and heard the visuals in that game were worth the price of admission alone. ME2 was tempting but i haven't finished with ME1 yet so i can wait on that one.

I just beat ME 1 over the weekend for the second time hoping that Gamefly would get it under $20 soon. Looks like I timed it perfectly. Now I just need to finish the new game of ME 1 that I started up right after I beat it.

i just wanted to know is dante inferno gameplay and stages on the same level as bayonetta and how long is it?


Just look at the post above you for an answer. ;)

Basically, if you want a game that's made for the masses, then get GOW3 or Dante's Inforno, which can be zipped through with ease with button mashing and lots of QTEs. If you like a bit more challenge, less chance of surviving with button mashing and much less QTEs, then get Bayonetta. If you want hard core challenge with zero QTEs, a game that doesn't tolerate button mashing where you must learn the combat system, the Ninja Gaiden series is what you want. Hope I help you make your decision. My personal choices are from the bottom up.

ME2 for under $20 ? SOLD! and here I was telling myself that I shouldn't buy anymore after getting Reach yesterday and Bioshock 2 with the last Gamefly deal.

Let the backlog begin....

Couldn't resist Darksiders and Dante's Inferno at those prices...however, I'm betting Alpha Protocol will get cheaper sooner rather than later, so I'll wait on that. Thanks, Cheapy...!

I'll bite on Alpha Protocol. Been wanting to give it a whirl and this seems like a reasonable price at which to do so.

Just bought GoW3 (despite my backlog being ridiculous and Super Street Fighter IV and Halo: Reach both competing for time). Couldn't pass it up at that price - thanks!

I usually wait for the price point to hit the rock bottom 9.99, then stock up my backlog. Now that EA is fighting against used game sales with DLC, it puts a premium on Gamefly used games, since almost anywhere else you buy used, you will not get the code. I don't even have time for ME2, but my guess is that it will be sold out before it even hits 9.99, so 17.99 is looking like the new 9.99. Although what is the chance you get a copy that someone traded in?

This is absolutely anecdotal, but every game I've ever bought from GameFly has come with absolutely everything, DLC codes included.

What the guy who posted prior to me said.

Anywhere else when you buy used, you get the retail package - the same physical package that someone purchased and used.

When you rent games from Gamefly, they send the discs only - never the stuff that comes in the retail package. So the DLC codes are going to be unused... unless there's some warehouse gnome that goes around opening boxes as they sit in storage.

While I normally think Yahtzee is full of it, his review of Darksiders was pretty spot on to me (but obviously not everyone else in this thread =p )

I went for it. I doubt GOW3 will go any lower that $20, even on BF, since its a Sony game and they NEVER lower their damn prices. I cant even find Uncharted 1 for less than $25. The one time I found it for $20, I jumped and havent seen it lower since.

I loved the Darksiders demo, plus I got in on the "Get Red Faction free with art book" for sending in that paper... found an unused one at Gamestop :) So great deal!!

EDIT: Wooo, back in stock!

bit on AP. $20 shipped is the right price to me. Even if the gameplay uses dice-rolls and the shooting looks janky as hell. What's the last spy rpg you've played?

Mulled over Alpha Protocol for a few days and decided to cave. Games like this that are polarized between the review community and the forum community intrigue me. Watching a few videos it seems that that dialogue might prove to funny to me in the same way Mass Effect was. Plan on doing a spec walkthough so the combat won't prove to be troublesome.

I had both GOW3 and Dante's Inferno, the two games are too similar to own both, so I traded in Dante to Amazon.

I however kept Bayonetta. Not all button smashing games are the same, but GOW and Dante are.


Same here. I rented Dante's and was frustrated at the bad checkpoint system. I enjoyed the story and voice-acting but the gameplay and design faltered. GOW3 and Bayonetta are staples for this generation.

P.S. - I love Michigan too. My userid is an ode to Michigan. Lets get it!

I thought I remembered reading there was a big graphical difference between the PS3 and 360 versions of Bayonetta. Is this true?

more of a framerate issue with the ps3 version. Although check around if a patch was ever released as most devs throw one out after its too late.

Latest patches apparently fix a lot of technical issues including the ridiculous loading times, but the frame rate issue has not been patched and there is no future plan to improve it.
This is the PS3 version.
