Wake Up Remedy! What Alan Wake 2 Needs to Succeed


"Recently, the Alan Wake Facebook page had a tease saying that we’ll soon be seeing what Remedy has been up to all this time.

Considering that both titles ended with the ominous message “Alan Wake’s journey through the night will continue,” I think it’s safe to say that Alan Wake 2 is in development.

With that in mind, here is exactly what Alan Wake 2 needs to succeed."

I really think the timing for Alan Wake 2 is perfect if it's in 2013.

It really needs a new hook though...more of the same may not cut it.

I thought the atmosphere and narrative were top-notch, but fighting enemies got old by the end of the game.

AW2 needs to either add in a more diverse enemy range, or overhaul the combat focus.

I think this is the way to go. not sure about the flashlight... waiting for it to charge with no batteries built the intensity in the original, but american nightmare sort of made it smoother with the quick charging light

Maybe go to an actual burning torch....with time ticking down on it's use as it gets smaller and smaller...Or a smartphone light that dies out all of a sudden!

If they wanted to keep the whole light combat mechanic, they could mix up the types of light.

Say some enemies can only be damaged by natural light, artificial, UV, or a combination of light and other objects.

Would keep it interesting.

@Deus Exer

As long as you aren't constantly needing to swap between light sources with a button, making it more annoying than cool

Loved the first one. It had some incredible lighting.

The PORT of the game to PC made a profit in 48 hours. As for game sales, i don't know if the game itself made a profit from X360 and PC sales.

As for the game, Alan Wake is one of the best games this generation.

That's what a lot of people fail to take note of, the cost of porting it to the pc was considerably less than the cost of making the 360 version. Not to take anything for the fine work Remedy did of course.

Can't wait for a reveal of AW2, it looked like it was supposed to be revealed at the last E3, but it seems it was dependent on Microsoft revealing the 360's successor.
