The black betty kitty at the end must be some inside joke or something... Took me by surprise.

Me as well, I was looking away from the screen and then that thing appeared.
Good video, interesting game, but a good return of the outtakes.

Indeed!

As for the rest of the video, looks like an interesting game - we'll see. And I wonder what Russ' pickup line was...?

I've been super excited about Alpha Protocol for awhile now. A "spy" RPG is a great idea and Obsidian does do good work, despite their recent riding on Biowares coattales.

Wow Russ. Smooth and smarmy!

*snickers*

George was annoyed that I didn't give him a credit for some video or another. So I told him to do something special on his credit for this episode of TES. Hilariously, he actually did.

THE DDK REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN! IT CAN NOT BE STOPPED! ALL HAIL DDKR!!! SPREAD THE WORD ON ALL MEDIA OUTLETS!

*dance dance kitten revolution

hi

lacasdagod made nearly speechless by the awesomeness of DDKR!!!

7:38 deserves a lolwut of its own... and how do you kill someone with a turd? :S

Obviously you are not a spy. True spies know how.

Looks interesting, but the animationa are lacking somewhat.

Dance Dance Kitten Revolution!!! VIVA LA KITTEN REVOLUTION!!

Story-driven action RPG has been done before (and well, like Beyond Good & Evil for example), but it's certainly not done very often (and some of the other attempts have been horrible failures). Here's hoping that Alpha Protocol turns out better :)

/me signs up to be in the DDKR army.

Rumor has it that the DDKR MMO will be out this summer. At least thats what I saw on the internet.

DDKRMMORPG!

Finally, the WoW killer we've all been waiting for!

Action movie news always bothered me. When was the last time you heard about a "leading arms dealer" being killed? It's about as plausible as the magic "rumor" which people can pick up without anyone being the original source.

Less a spy and more The Angry Videogame Nerd.

Nice to see The Escapist is into kittens again.

Dude tht was a funny ending with the cat!

I have been as well. Too bad this video didn't really touch on the good stuff.

cool cat, but the alpha game will suck since the developers obviously haven't heard of Mass Effect they will not be able to learn from it's mistakes.

Definitely looks interesting. Everyone loves spies!

"...Definitely looks interesting. Everyone loves spies!..."

Yes everyone does. But not NEARLY as much as everyone loves DDKR!!

Then why are people constantly trying to kill them?

Roberta and I just returned from our annual trip to Japan. While we was there, we were mystified by several cryptic, large-format advertisements featuring a kitten with the subtitle "DDKR". We saw these outside the Park Hyatt in Tokyo and at Shibuya Crossing, among other places. I figured it must have been some sort of underground guerrilla advertising scheme, like the Aqua Teen Hunger Force thing from a few years ago. So when I got home, I googled it - and this was the only thing I could find on it. "Huh, this thing must be really underground," I thought to myself. But then I watched this Episode 24 video, and it's the same damn kitten from the signs in Japan! DDKR and everything! So I don't know what Dance Dance Kitten Revolution might be, but it's global, baby! Sign me up for the DDKR army!!!

As I predicted. The DDKR is going global. DDKR is going to be EPIC! Nothing can stop it now!!

DDKR? Im more of a DDDR person.
