The lowdown on Alpha Protocol’s Madison Saint James

, | Games

I’m on my second playthrough of Alpha Protocol, opting for the role of jerkwad with a lot of points in his shotgun skill. It seems that no matter what you do in the game, the plot calls for you to take Madison Saint James (pictured, right) into your safehouse in Rome, where I presume she eats your food, reads your magazines, watches your TV, and lolls about on your couch. Since I’m a jerkwad in this playthrough, she doesn’t like me. So when I initiate a conversation, it goes like this.

Madison Saint James: “Asshole.”
Mike Thornton: “Bitch.”

My favorite thing about the conversation is how the characters speak under their breath. I’m going to miss her when — spoiler! — she’s gone.
