“He took out his hip flask when he reached the page that described how he reached the page that made him take out his hip flask.” As Alan reads this page of his manuscript aloud, the paradox of Alan Wake comes full circle. Like the age old question of the chicken or the egg, the story of Alan Wake begs to question the very nature of storytelling – what came first, the author or the story? Ar...

Alan Wake adds more emphasis on the story as well as the game itself which more mature gamers will be very appreciative. I mean seriously, how many times do we have to save the world by being the last super solider who knows how to wield every and any known weapon in the universe. So hearing Alan Wake's coming was very welcome. Bear in mind this review is trying to keep as many spoilers out bei...

Alan Wake, the long awaited game that was one of the first titles give a glimpse of next-gen technology. With fantastic visuals and a eerie thriller feel, its easy to see why this was a much wanted title. With several delays and the company Remedy to be working in stealth mode, gave very little to the fans for years who eagerly awaited. But in 2010 the wait is over, Alan Wake is here and ready....

“Stephen King once wrote “Nightmares exist outside of logic, and there's little fun to be had in explanations; they're antithetical to the poetry of fear””- so begins Alan Wake, protagonist suspense writer Alan Wake's wearisome tones narrating over the sweeping vistas of the idyllic setting of Bright Falls. Inspired by the collected works of novelist Stephen King and the TV series Twin Peaks, A...

"Stephen King once wrote, ‘Nightmares exist outside of logic, and there’s little fun to be had in explanations; they’re antithetical to the poetry of fear’. 'The unanswered mystery is what stays with us the longest'" This will be the quote you hear during the opening of Remedy's 'Psy. Action Thriller' Alan Wake. The game takes place in a Northwestern town called Bright Falls in which things a...

Alan Wake w/ The Signal DLC Review Every so often a game comes along that has hype behind it but for one reason or another stumbles when it comes to overall sales figures. Released on May 18th earlier this year by Remedy Entertainment (of ‘Max Payne’ fame) exclusively for the Xbox 360, ‘Alan Wake’ has found itself playing this role. Whatever the reason for the slow sales, whether it was a la...

Alan Wake-The Signal is an interesting piece to the nightmarish fiction we've seen. Adding in an entirely new sub-story of branching off what's been going on to Alan Wake after so many question were raised during its conclusion and where does he go from here. While it may not answer many questions, it certainly does show that Alan's imagination in the horror genre naturally seems to suprise....

The Signal is part one of two DLC's and this should have come free via a code with the retail copy of the full game, so really there is no reason not to download it, unless of course your X360 is not connected XBLive. For those who have not purchased the game yet read our review HERE to get a full perspective of what to expect before forking out your hard earned cash. With no memory of previ...

On my first play through of Alan Wake I found the game very refreshing, it was a nice change from the usuall games I had been playing. The reviews it got I think reflected the game well, it wasnt perfect but it was definitley worth playing if you owned a 360. The graphics in my opinion are the best on the 360 and although alot of the reviews complained about the lack of day time gameplay, the w...

As redundant as the title for this DLC sounds, "Alan Wake: The Writer"'s overall gameplay is able to stray from any excess thanks to both a few new ideas and more gameplay variation. Although this DLC is a bit short for the 560 MS points, it's still an adventure worth jumping into for Alan Wake fans. The story starts off in the "Previously on Alan Wake" (the motif that it's now known for) v...

UPDATE: Please people, understand that what I am talking about, the game is not bad, the graphics is. I am reviewing a game, and that is all, at the end of the day, it is you people that should decide for yourselves what you think about the game. I put down two school days of my life for this game, in other words, 5th and 6th of April. I didn't go to school to play through the game, each d...

Alan Wake was one of my top five games of 2010, it went largely unnoticed however for most of the year largely in part to it releasing the same day as Red Dead Redemption. The game itself was in development for over five years by a small company called Remedy, originally intended as a Multiplatform release on the Xbox 360, PS3 and P.C. Microsoft swooped in and saw the potential and made R...
