Sure their games are glitchy but...

Every single aspect of Alpha Protocol apart from the choices/consequences system is utterly mediocre.

So very true. It wasn't the fact that there was a "win game" button that made me dislike it. Those buttons are not all that rare. It was the fact you could collect SEVERAL "win game" buttons and just not even have a challenge anymore.

It's precisely BECAUSE something could go wrong. A full day on a site like Facebook is more than enough time to see any major issues crop up, yet isn't long enough to deeply impact their service*.

*I know, I know..."Facebook" and "service" in the same sentence. Hurpadurp.

The juvenile side of me wants to make a joke off of "long enough" and "deeply impact", but I'd rather just say this: A full day on facebook is also a lot more likely to cause thousands of grandma's and others to claim the internet is broken if something goes wrong. I hope ISPs are going to be ready for support calls.

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
