A Super Mod on the Alan Wake.com forums made an announcement on 4/6/08 that the media blackout of Alan Wake would not be Lasting much longer.
Really, really, exited for this game. But, is this enough to be news? There's more writing in my comment than there is on the forum. @ Below Id be the happiest person in the world if it came out this year.
Finally. Someone will finally shed some light on this game. Hopefully it makes it into this yr. Though i doubt it
Although its not much in length of the statement, the statement itself is pretty exciting!
Me too. This is the remaining unreleased 360 game that I am really interested in. I am cross it's not coming to PS3, but I will not buy a 360 for one game.
I just like the idea, the gameplay looks a bit slow though. I might just get Alone in the Dark 5.
The media blackout ending just might mean a release date. And, or more footage and gameplay previews.
If the game wasnt coming out this year, would they be talking to press for more than 8 months?
Working the media with previews and such is timed based on the release.
I'm pretty confident this game is coming this year.
Well its rumored th be going out this fall. I think they we'll be seeing a lot on this game after E3. I really hope it makes it out this year
Anyone that knows a good page that contains all the facts of this game till today... theres a lot of HYPE... and the only thing i know is that is being made by the same studio who made Max Pain. I saw a trailer about a forest... and a road (nothing special) Thank you.
Have always stated that they give media blowout just before they are gonna release a game so this definitely comin this year or just at start of 2009 at the most. They showed Max payne video just 2 weeks before release.
if this is true, then there is a chance it could make a holiday 08 release.
Glad Remedy is getting off the 3DRealms train, if for only a little bit.
we'll finally get to see what 2 years has done to it. can't wait.
I know nothing about this game.
The only other time in recent memory I've heard the term "media blackout" was when Prince Harry was in Afghanistan. That "blackout" held a huge secret, I'll be paying attention to Alan Wake from now on.
EDIT - I put a lot of thought into this comment Atomic, and you had to dirty it up with THAT?
is this game competing with "Deer hunter"? because the only media i've seen are images of trees , mountains , woods
You should watch trailers and crap of that nature. Read about it or something. Trust me once you know a little you'll be craving it as much as I am.
That Prince Harry thing was really out of line. And quite worrying the government would be so deceptive. Anyway, I am sorry that's not related. But that really shocked me.
I want to see a lot more but without spoiling too much of the game for me.
And that this is awesome. But this really reminds me of how Zipper interactive have been working on for a game for 3 years now, and haven't even shown a trailer.
same thing with sucker punch with Infamous. Showed us one ok trailer at E3 '07, with absolutely nothing else aftewards. jeeze.
December 2008 launch with Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake and GeOW2 just before that.im also hoping they announce DOA 5 for the holidays too.
I think Mass Effect 2 will be a 2009 release.
No more tech demos. Nut cutting time. This will finally answer the question about the 360's supposing plateaued capabilities no? Cant Wait. - Alan Wake looks way better than the old tech demos since 2005. - Alan Wake looks the same as the tech demos since 2005. (Not Good, this will confirm the plateau) - Alan Wake looks worse than the tech demos since 2005. (Also Not Good)
Why are you even allowed in the gamer zone?
"This will finally answer the question about the 360's supposing plateaued capabilities no"
Who the fcuk is saying that? Certainly not the industry. The machine has plenty of horsepower yet to be exploited.
No one but the most narrow minded even entertains such folly. Please, cant you at least pretend to make sense, if not, take the trolls to the openzone.
It's about time, I can't wait to see some gameplay in this game. A game coming from Remedy has to be good, and they're not rushin it. If they feel it's not ready they won't release it right away.
This seems like the 360's Killzone 2 w/o the hype. We'll see, quite frankly I'm skeptical about Killzone 2 AND this...
We've seen Killzone 2 in action at E3 last year. Since then, select persons of the media have even gotten a chance to play it. This game is like all cloak and dagger. If anyone has played it, they're either dead or gagged and bound in someone's closest until the media blackout is over. LoL
It should be an OK game.
If by "ok" you mean "great", and by "should" you mean "will", then uhm, yeah, you're right.
Woot. Even though i only have a Ps3 right now Alan Wake and Ninja Gaiden 2 are the two games that would make me plunk down 450 bucks on a 360 (i included the price of the wi-fi adaptor). Alan Wake looks fabulous to me now if i can have some solid details i'd definitely tip the scale for me getting a 360. To me the game has that much potential.
I realized a whille ago, that the only way I was going to enjoy the best games was to buy all of the current consoles. I am have not been bored a second and it will continue to fun as the years come.
Oh, yo might not have to plunk out $450 for a 360. There is a price cut looming, so be patient.
if your not willing to throw down $450 its on pc also =P
You can use a laptop as a WiFi connection if you don't have one. No need to spend $100 for wifi. Is your 360 near your cable jack? Assuming you have cable internet, a 3ft cable would be much better than wifi in any scenerio. Wifi is overrated. If you want fast, reliable connections for gaming, always use a cable. I used a cable with my ps3. My Wii is wifi but that's not really online gaming, LOL
I only have a laptop with integrated graphics so i can't buy it for P.C. Wish i could but i can't. @sayaijin: It was never the fact that i didn't want a 360 because i always wanted one. But the thing is most games is multiplatform now and most of my favorite franchises are on the Ps3. I needed a few really interesting games to persuade me to plunk down another bundle of cash for another gaming console. Hopefully they'll be a pricedrop by this holiday season. @ElementX: My laptop is in my room along with the wi-fi and internet modem. My Ps3 is in the living room and my 360 would go there as well. It's more than a few feet from there to here so i need wi-fi. I don't have problems with dropout or lag so i don't have any complaints. The 360 doesn't accept wi-fi waves on it's own without the peripheral so i'd need to buy it.
theres always the "mooch off a friend" option too lol
You can buy a wireless bridge for entertainment-center for less than $20.00... here ya go:
That said, who on earth would want to increase their latency with wireless gaming? Thank God my house has ethernet networking.
This game is gonna be amazing
Alan Wake will PWN everything on the PS3................JUST WAIT (sound familiar). But the difference is,this game aint no Lair(Liar)or some puke green washed up MGS game. It's Alan Wake up and smell the roses PS3 punks. tom
U have fun with this one kids, ill have fun with a REAL Games. And its Funny that u kids BAsh MGS4 its ok u HATE IT SOOO MUCH! CUZ U CANT HAVE IT!! And Have to Find Ways to Justify your CRAPPY LAST GEN CONSOLE AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Jealousy sucks. But then So is being a Xbot. Keep dreaming.
Im not much of an Adventure gamer, but the game does look engrossing.
I'll probably wait until after the reviews and previews to see how the game plays before I decide.
That said, it does look as interesting to me as any Adventure has in a long time. And, its nice to see that it seems to be aimed at a older (ie: not children) gamers, by daring to tell an actual story during the game.
I hope it impresses us when they reveal the new stuff. I actually forgot about this game but I'm still curious about it. I have a quad core and I remember them saying it was supposed to run really well on a quad. I hope I remembered that right.
Yeah, this could be a very interesting title. depending on the new info i may pick this up for my PC.
We need to know more about Project Offset too.
I wonder what the supposed MGS4 killer will be?.
MGS4 killer ?...when can the 360 achieve MGS4 graphics quality..?
Leave fanboy if you don't like it. MGS4 doesn't even messure up to Call of Juarez graphically. Its over the top JAP silliness and drama is too outdated with the ridiculous symbols over charactors heads and piss green color.
Moronic AI like mice in mazes.
Friggin fugly skeletal proportions with the charators and very un-natural movments/postures in joint animations.
Friggin painted looking textures in MGS4 flat poop with poor bump mapping. Big ass fat lines is what you see when you're close to cracks just like KillZone 2, you get close and the detail lookes like a close up of Mario's face in Super Mario BROS.
Friggin gameplay graphics don't even match up against the 360 version of Splinter Cell Double Agent. Poor piss green and Yellow faded *like the contrast is up too high on a SDTV* looking excuse of a graphical milestone just like all the other PS3 title.
Snake pulling a magic barrels out of his Zelda Pouch to run over the stupid ass AI tumbling down the street with the AI not having any clue is classic.
look whos being fanboyish now =P
I think somebody's a little bit jealous of MGS4.....
Get a PS3 buddy... Relieve that pain..
oh dear. tell me your joking?
LMFAO!!!!! POG, YOU JUST OWNED THE EVER LOVIING ASS SH1T OUT OF MGS4!!!! LMAO. stupid, pathetic droids, got owned. sad but true. LOL. and whoop, you're such a moron. I plan on getting a PoS3 later this year, and also this game (I love MGS), but what POG said was 100% true in every word. don't be a fanboy. open your eyes. MGS gameplay is old, outdated, has a stupid story, and mgs4 looks like sh1t on the amazing PS3 LMAO.
360 did MGS4 graphics 2 years ago, remember it's you guys playing catch up and, it's you guys with the sub par PS2 looking ports. We don't have that problem remember?
This will not matter to those that do not care about this game no matter what but those that just don't know what it's about, I will explain what I have read. Alan Wake is a horror book author. His wife passes away and he begins to lose sleep becoming an insomniac of sorts. He moves away to Bright falls which I think is placed in washington to a sleep clinic there and tries to move on with his life. He begins writing again only to see the things he writes down are starting to become reality. The weather and lighting effects in the game seem to be technically superior to any game I have seen previously. The things that are after him only chase him in the darkness so he must use light and some firepower to keep alive. I've been interested in this game since it was announced so i'm happy to see that it's finally getting back in the media
That sounds fantastic, thanks for the update.
Correction, "Alan Wake Media "blackout" to end Sony"
halo 3 was more likely to do that and we all know how that turned out =P
one new ip cant destroy sony turdstation, imean if halo bioshock and all of the 360 big hitters didnt destroy the ps3 or sony nothing will just face it alan wake wont do anything to ps3.
Yeah we do know how that turned out. Halo sold 4 million in one day, is heading to 7 and helped make the 360 king of 07. It has taken over a year for your PS3 to sell 3 million copies of Motorstorm (a bundled game), while Halo 3 outsold it my 1 million in one single day.
JVIDICAN you are so stupid I think I just found my 4th person to put on ignore. I don't ignore people, I'm not a coward, I just think your dumb.
It would be nice to see somthing new, we all been looking at those great screens from 2006 for way to long now.
wait for this game.
They continue to write that the XBOX360 is dead...but there is the real risk that the 360 line-up will rock even this year.
Of course, I can't wait for Duke Nukem: Forever to come out too...
E3 and XO8 is when we should expect to see alot of inoformation about this game.
Actually Halo 3 has sold 8million the last time I heard and its going up. Still looking forward to some more news about this game, but I also want some more news on Banjo Kazooie 3...
...Windows Vista is the primary reason for the lack of info, media, etc. on this game. Remember, this is a Vista-only PC game, and the future of Vista is cloudy at best. I'm betting Remedy has had to retool the game to run on XP as well, like Crysis, thus causing delays. The good news would be that the 360 version would likely be identical to the PC version, if this is the case.
