Remedy has finally updated their Alan Wake - Homepage including new screenshots and the brandnew trailer that has just been shown in some movie theatres before the premiere of the Max Payne movie.
OMG thats trailer was epic, if this comes out in 2009 its got a HUGE chance of being GOTY
Your basing GOTY potential on a trailer? Let alone you havent seen half the games out next year. Way to set yourself up for a possible disapointment. But yes it does look really good, hopefully it not stupidly demanding like Crysis, I know Intel used it some time ago to show case their CPUs (Quad core I believe) so hopefully they've kept it inline with current (or around time of release, current) hardware.
Yep, I am guessing this is the PC version... It would be insane to show the 360 version. But even so, the graphics aren't as good as the picture for the story here. You can see. And polygons counts are lowww...
"Your basing GOTY potential on a trailer?" Well yes what else to i have to base it on, apart from the fact Remedy arent known to produce crap and MS is publishing it and the last time MS published a 3rd party game we got Gear of War and Mass Effect so....... Plus i doubt the PC version will be that demanding if the 360 is the lead platform
Well how about you take it for what it is, a trailer designed to "sell" the product, like every other trailer. Assuming something is as huge as GOTY at this stage is ridiculous, as I'm sure your aware if you think about it. 360 is lead platform? Got a link for that. PC and 360 game, built on a PC, show casing PC hardware, but 360 is the lead? Link please.
it is also up on gamersyde http://www.gamersyde.com/ne...
...scared to death his PC can't handle Alan Wake, and he'll have to buy a 360. :D Dude, just STFU with your hypocritical nonsense. PS3 fans have been saying MUCH worse about PS3 exclusives like MGS4, KZ2, and LBP, when only trailers had been released. Omega merely said it had "a chance", which is MUCH more grounded and realistic. This is the "Gamer Zone"....let the "gamers" be excited about their anticipated games. If you can't be exctied WITH them, then CLEARLY your comments belong >>>>>>. @ NoPudding... That was just pathetic, man. Everybody knows you're pro-PS3...but your comment about the graphics was just plain IGNORANT. Take your blind butt >>>>>>
If I was a 360 owner I'd be excited by that. Graphics did look kinda blocky but the story concept based on the soundbites is rather intriguing. We'll see how this turns out as time passes. 12
LOL already got 2 mate, don't think I need 3. I'm a PC gamer at heart, it's my chosen platform, and that is my prerogative. I play computer games, you play computer games, we all play computer games so why feel the need to ridicule each other over platform or format? Any game available on console and PC i'll take on PC primarily and pick up console version if my friends do so I can play with them. Why does platform matter to you so much, this is also a PC game so why cant I comment from a PC angle. N4G is just for console gamers huh bro?
@ Omega4 - funny how you mention only gears and mass effect as games published by MS, did you forget about the massive flops they published like NG2, Too Human, Tenchu Z, Vampire Rain, Ninety-Nine Nights, Lost Odyssey, Infinite Undiscovery, Perfect Dark Zero and probably more...
Is the entire trailer CGI?
...I'm sure the game will probably be good for 360 owners but you have other contenders for GOTY. :/
NG2 and Lost Odyssey where not bad games or even flops.
To 9.1 Los Odyssey is not a flop! (It is actually an awsome game). much less a massive flop. same goes to Too Human (way over hyped), infinite undiscovery and Perfect dark (they were not perfect, no doubt, but they were not flops, much less massive flops) and by the way lets not forget how sony fans have raved about killzone 2 from 2005 (E3) until about 2007, based solely on CG. And for the record i do not judge games on trailers period. Alan Wake could suck for all i know. b gamers not haters peace
Alan Awake game of the year? Possibly... but some other contenders that I think are in with a chance include God of War 3, Killzone 2, Gran Turismo 5, War Devil and White Knight Chronicles. None of the aforementioned are also on the PC....
Your real funny Omega, when it comes to any 360 titles its AAA, or epic or just out of this world, but when a sony trailer is posted up your quick to shoot it down talk down about etc. This just goes to show you what kind of person you are, your not fooling anyone not even a blind person with that FFXIII avatar.
the graphics are slightly better than gta4's. its not the best looking console game ive seen. the characters look great though, but the textures in the environment needs some work. overall its not up to uncharted's graphics but its close. maybe they can get it to look better like gears 2.
we don't know the goty of 2008 yet you by trailer just decided it is 2009 goty
Northern westcoast, Little town by a lake, tourist attraction, single guy arrives by car, insane locals, dark night with flashlight...come one ring a bell? Well probably not the majoirty if you are xbox fans and have never even heard of silent hill for the original playstation one. If you had you would see this alan wake as a complete knock-off of storyline...typical american developers littel minds so they steal others ideas
Why is this a nationality issue? Where the hell are you getting your assumptions there? Personally, I would love to play this game, been a Remedy fan simply from Max Payne.
i dunno, Tha facial and the movments in this game look a bit stiff (kinda like gta arm swinging movements). Is that supposed to be in CG 0.o i was expecting a bit more from this game. owell the constrution of the trailer looks good but resi 5 is wayyyyyyyyyyy better (b4 xbox fans start disagreein and takin ma bubbles, relax im also a xbox owner chek my profile b4 you start flame war)
at least for a game that won't come out for a while. I'm sure it look even better upon release. The story seems really interesting too, though not really a ripoff of Silent Hill by "typical American developers". I don't really like horror games, but this one seems very interesting.
mmmm..... it looks as another silent hill >< and i hate silent hill a little
I'm a little worried about this game. All the hype that was already built up without any game play whatsoever is making me wonder if it's going to be another Alone in the Dark. That had a VERY VERY similar trailer and I got excited about that game until I actually played it :/ Here's Hoping that Remedy can actually put good gameplay in it, and if it's as good as their previous games, then I'll be relieved.
But this game reminded me of Heavy Rain, they look kinda similar. Although I wish the main character didn't look so damn depressed. The actual character looks great! Even if those screens are from a PC build I'm pretty sure the 360 can come at least close to pulling it off. However the rest of the game looks a little..off? I know someone said blocky but I was thinking blurry or just regular. Its like the character looks amazing but the rest of the environment doesn't match the detail. Just my opinion though.
It did give a Silent Hill kind of vibe. I hope it's not, but that's what it looks like. I'm really hoping this game turns out to be something good. Remedy has been working on this game forever, and it would suck for them to put all that time into something that turns out to be underwhelming. I think this game is going to compared to Heavy Rain, since they're coming out around the same year, and both seem to be heavily story driven. I wish the best of luck to both microsoft and remedy with this one.
Is it just me waiting a long time for the trailer to appear? It's just endemic...
You've got to press button 1. Same problem here.
To be honest it was my slow connection but I couldn't resist turning it into the obvious joke. Mea culpa.
I'll definitely continue to watch this game.
That looks awesome, great tailer.
I totally forgot they were releasing this trailer. It was big news on here when it was announced a trailer was coming but then nothing for weeks. On topic, the trailer looks pretty good. I will definitely keep this title on my radar.
didnt ps3 fanboys say goty off of a killzone trailer that was "gameplay'' years ago?
Your point mr.sh*tbrain?
Alan Wake's Graphics are no where close to Uncharted CLOSED
had to watch and wait and past that lame boring Milk carton Guy...the lucky ones where waiting in line for popCorn.
the graphics look very stiff (if thats CG cutscene then 0.0) kinda like GTA style with the dodgy arm swinging movements
See profile for accurate description of Alan Wait
I bet you had to take a shower after seeing this, for having sh!t yourself. Looks good don't it? I think the PS3 just lost 2009, well better luck in 2010, and have fun playing that now last gen game KZ2. Make sure you was your pants and underwear separate from other cloths, don't want them smelling of sh!t...:)
You really need your eyes checked or actually remove the MS tactical bot goggles. Looks good but you are getting carried away.
Games that come out for pc and 360 always showcase the P.C version because they know the 360 will hamper the game and it will be downgraded alot to fit on dvd. I cant wait to see the 360 version and be dissapointed by a game that called Alan Wait. Smells like another overhyped 360 game but i'm sure it will be great on a P.C
It'll be on a DVD on the PC so how will they downgrade it to fit on a DVD? They don't use Blu Ray for PC games u numpty. Speaking of overhyped games, isn't Killzone 1 poor as hell and Resistance 1 nothing special? Actually that's not a question cos I know the answer. Will probably be a great game, just like all the Max Payne's
"I cant wait to see the 360 version and be dissapointed " just run out and buy Bio Shock, HAZE, SOCOM, Lair ect, ect if you want to be dissapointed by some games. Every so called "Just wait" game has FALIED MGS4? ha-ha Little Big turd? garbage
Well the DVD for the PC has compressed data on it and will normally ship with multiple DVD's IF needed then the game WILL INSTALL to the PC (this expands the compressed data) and only needs the main DVD in the cd drive to recognize that you own the game, if you actually used a PC you would know this and since the Xbox doesn't do this you can see where he will get the idea that it will be dumbed down version or that it may have to be of more than 2 DVD's to match the PC version.
lol Alan Sleep has finally awoken.
It looks slightly better than Disaster:Day of crisis on Wii
But seriously it looks good... I like the Trailer, i can buy it for either the PC or the Xb360, but i gonna try it on PC because its cheaper LOL! Same was with Gears Of War and Mass Effect.
....nice to see something of the game. I think this will be a great game for '09. Lets hope it releases in '09. Fingers crossed.
Alan Wait looks like one gigantic pile of cow manure
Delay Station, Wait Beyond, Lair and HAZE are AAA+ games or Bio Shock is better on the PS3.MGS4 and Uncharted will sell 10 million copys... You are dismissed LOSER go watch "What a girl wants" on BR dvd
game is said to be the first game to truely utilize the multicores in the 360 CPU, most developers have not yet tapped into the capabilities that multicores have due to the complexity and time needed. The 360 still has a lot of graphical power left to be tapped, anyone who thinks it has been maxed so soon in the life span of the console is just ignorant. I hope this game is the beginning of the next level of next gen game production.
I've been frequenting the Alan Wake/Brightfalls forums for a couple years now, and the guys from Remedy who post there, are very happy with the 360 hardware. According to some posts recently, games published/dev'd under the "Games for Windows" brand, are made for Vista/DX10, then ported to XP and 360. However, they also stated the 360 versions are closer to Vista/DX10, as seen with Bioshock. Expect the 360 version of Alan Wake to be identical to the high-end (not max) PC version, aside from maybe framerate and some DX10-specific post-processing effects, like with the Gears PC release.
the fracture developers said on the interview with Gamespot that they had maxed out the 360 with all the physics calculations, one of the advantages an 7 SPU core has that a normal PC core doesn't. The Xbox 360 is powerful in that it runs exactly like a PC with a quad core, that's great but it can't hold up against a dedicated 7 SPUs which can process and dedicate farrr more. You use bioshock as your example, to be honest, it's not a graphical warehouse, its a gameplay warehouse, a graphical warehouse is something like Uncharted drakes fortune or Killzone 2, not Bioshock (as great a game as it is) like look for yourself. The gears 2 picture, great game, but it uses an image collection as its fire, because the CPU can't calculate and keep a steady frame rate the actual fire particles dispersing etc. With Killzone 2 it's quite different, the uncharted explosions are the same. And look at the ground texture on the gears 2 pic. you see? I hope that helped! this - http://xbox360media.ign.com... or http://img78.imageshack.us/... http://ps3.psu.com/media/ki... or http://ps3media.ign.com/ps3... i'll let you decide.
The atmosphere looks great...Silent Hill ish though, but looking as a solid title for next year if its released that is..even though its too early to base any final judgment on the game, it looks to revel in the creepy atmosphere during the day bit and looks a top contender against other graphically powerful titles due to be out..
It definetly looks good for a seamless game comparing this to GTA4 it looks that Remedy has done a marvelous job on textures.
homecoming was the first thing tha came to my mind at the beginning f the trailer. all in all i wasnt too impressed. the townsfolk looked and sounded weird too
http://ps3media.ign.com/ps3... Vs http://www.videogaming247.c... Now wipe those tears from your face and beg mommy to get you a Ps3,mkay Xturd?
This coming from a troll that doesn't have a HDTV? Haha. Even if you had the best looking game of all time that's super realistic and utterly amazing, you wouldn't get to see it in all it's glory. Here's an idea, sell your trolling club, and get an HDTV. At least then you wouldn't be praising graphics you'll never get to see.
"pc" Is it just me,or is it too easy to pwn an Xturd?I'll be back later on today,I beg you fellow Sony supporters(and some of you Sony employees),please send me all instances of Xturd ownage while I'm away. Thanks
I may have to get this. got to build a computer first though :P.
Very pretty indeed. Flashlight looks great! Lets hope the gameplay lives upto the promise these screentshots show. One to watch in 2009.
this trailer looks really good, the graphics are the best ive ever seen and its xbox 360 exclusive? thats awesome, best graphics ive ever seen. the graphics are better than halo and gears of war 2, nothing can touch this. Ps3 ftw, lol, ps3 will rain down "HEAVY RAIN" on this and its over. cant wa it to see gamplay compared to the trailer,lol. we have all seen heavy rain and killzone 2. ps. the talon stands for talented
What is your talent? Not writing, right? RIGHT?!
Your looking at the in-game engine guys.
This looks sweet...graphics are incredible. The best graphics ever seen on any console. Story will be epic and graphics will be wow, gameplay will be great. Heavy Rain WHAT.
How your comment started good and ended in a flamewar instigation PS3 and 360 owners in this thread need to quit already and admire the nice looking trailer. I'm kind of glad that I don't have to envy any of you one console-ethugs who come here and try to make your console out to be god's gift to gaming. Most of it's entertainment because it's like watching red and black ants in a hill all fighting. Think about this. While most of you fanboys bicker and groan about how good games on the opposite console sucks and actually getting your feelings hurt when someone else does the same to your console of choice, I'll be enjoying both of your games! :) Have a nice wasted time over nothing day!
looks dope cant wait :D
Looks very epic and atmospheric. The facial animations could be better though.
... i have to admit that the game looks amazing ... the graphics look very real ... a lot better r]than silent hill. Can't wait to see gameplay footage (everything in that trailer appears to be in-game graphics though). These are the times when i wished i a had a 360. This is what i want microsoft to do. MAKE GAMES and not steal them. It creates competition and is better for the whole gaming community.
