Alpha Protocol defends "barely RPG" comment

Obsidian responds to yesterday's huge SCEA/Sega leak

In case you missed it yesterday, a document of minutes was leaked online from a Sega, Sony meeting highlighting several games and events going forward. One of those games was Obsidian's Alpha Protocol, which "Michael Foster, product evaluator, said AP felt barely RPG. Initial level too challenging for players. 'Mass Effect felt more RPG.'"

A day later and, assuming the leak was real, Matthew Rorie, PR man for the developer, has defended the title on the game's official forum. "And yes, I believe the gentleman in the quotes works for SCEA (assuming this is legit).

"As for what he said, obviously we enjoy any feedback that we can get, but without knowing how much of the game he played (and I seriously doubt that someone as busy as a product evaluator for Sony is going to be playing through an entire game if it's as long as Alpha Protocol), it's hard to judge what he meant by those comments. Suffice to say that Alpha Protocol is going to tickle your RPG tastebuds when it's released."

And that's great. But tickling the tastbuds is hardly satisfying them now is it?
