Norwegian gaming website gamer.no has posted a new interview with Alan Wake developer Oskari Häkkinen. The interview contains lots of new info.
Wow this game looks good and it looks like the game will have an interesting plot.
Yes it looks good but will it ever come out? Now that's the real question. I used to be looking forward to seeing this game hit the store shelves. But its taken them so long I would rather just pass. After 3 long years of waiting I have lost all interest. Now if MS gives us a release date and some in-game footage it could very well change my mind.
Unfortunately, some games do take a long time to develop. It's just a fact of life. You know like the Final Fantasy series, RE series, GT series, etc.
and only 30 people working on the game.
This game is going to be Huge
True and I understand that good games take time to develop. But we the public have not heard jack about this game in over 3 years. If the developers cant tell us about the game after it was announced over 3 years ago then something is wrong.
Maybe MS wants to save all the info on this game for this year's E3. Who knows.
Pretty sure the game will be good, M$ has barely talked about it and i know they want this game to be a hit. M$ likes to surprise people, not announce things and let people wait months for it, know any company like that?
I personally like lover development time games kept in secretcy. As soon as they finally start to show some stuff we will all be thankful that they took the time to really impress. It sucks but this is what it takes sometimes.
want to see more of this game. Its been a long time in the making so I hope its good.
Looking forward to checking out this title. Seems like it will be a strong contender to Heavy Rain in terms of story. From the article though, it does say that the developer controls how the weather is going to be... meaning either weather will change depending on what area you go to or weather will be a certain way during triggered scenarios. Either way, will be interesting to take a look at.
You know, when the movie Psycho was release, nobody knew what to expect. and that's why it was so popular. it caught ppl off guard. there are lots of situations in entertainment where ppl have to keep quiet. and i think it's a good thing. one thing i can't stand now is that there is so much media coverage of gaming. so many websites trying to get exclusive interviews, and first reviews, etc... there should be more secrecy in gaming. i don't like knowing plots and back stories before i get a game, i want to experience it fresh. with that said, maybe companies should think twice about announcing games so early. just work on the title, let small amounts of info leak, and if ppl want to read that info, let em. it would do a lot for gaming if we stopped over hyping things for months of even years before they come out.
very true, I hated that we got so much back story before MGS4 came out. We should have all started it and asked "why is snake so old" but by the time we played it, we were already so used to him being old that the thought really never came up. On topic though, Alan Wake sounds really interesting
any gameplay footage ? please ? Or rather let the footage clarify the all forever question and curiosity ? No ?
just dont expect the 360 footage
My expectation of this title has long gone. Giving away still pict just can't do it now. I just hope Alan Wake can live out the night.
alan wake articles. we get your point. but i bet you'll be back.
I just hope this game breaks the trend of games being in extended development are usually failures
Yeah me too. some one have to break it xD especially in time like this ...
Good to see everyhting is coming together and very close to completion. I can't help lament the fac tthat they sold the rights to the Max Payne series to help fund this game though.
I feel Rockchav is going to srew that classic series up. I would have been great that, if after finishing Alan Wake, Remedy then went back and completed the Max Payne trilogy on next gen consoles...
GIVE ME THIS GAME!!!
I didn't disagree but I can understand why they did.
Reading the interview, Alan Wake looks like a bit Bart's Nightmare on Genesis / Megadrive. Of course, the games themselves are different but in the principle, Alan Wake is a game where we have a writer that lost what he wrote and will cross different episodes where the gameplay is also different. In Bart's Nightmare, Bart lost his homework and must find them back in his dreams, crossing different episodes with different gameplays. As the game is story-based, i wonder how 360 fanboys will react to see dialogs and cinematics, whereas they were spitting on Metal Gear Solid 4, "it's a movie not a game". I'm very intrigued by that use of light in gameplay and if the game looks good, it will probably be a day-one buy for me. I'm very impatient to see more.
360 fanboys wasn't he only ones bashing MGS4. I know of alot of people that played the game that plays Playstation and likes MGS that was bothered on how long those cut scenes was.
Still it was a great game not the best MGS IMO, but very good.
Not really worth fretting about. There's cut-scenes than there's MGS4 cut-scenes, I could never understand the cretins that moaned about the length of MGS4 cut-scenes, they are an incredible achievement.
im dying for a a quick gameplay teaser or something. keeping a game like this under wraps when people know about it generates some unwanted hype and if the game fails to deliver it will get slammed and the devs are gonna defend it saying the media is too harsh. we've seen it happen before. yea i know this is remedy and they made max payne but silicon knights made too human and free radical made haze and we all know how those turned out. dont show too much tho, re5 was already spoiled for me because capcom decided to show the whole game in their trailers :p
I'm pretty sure that they will show some footage of the game at this year's E3.
has to be pc
just don't understand why they're still reluctant to give out info about this game when it's been in development for so long, for the sake of everyone getting hyped for it, i really hope it delivers, then again no1 knows exactly what they are getting hyped about...
Perhaps their just not ready. No company likes to release information that could end up false unless it's set in stone.
and rmeember the footage.
Wow, that was a weird article. The game looks cool though, but when will we see it?
''Grunnmekanikkane is always the same, and the controls are like, but the atmosphere and can be viewed no different from episode to episode.'' I've been in Grunnmekanikkane, so I know it. :')
well that was a good interview. i thought remedy was going talk about when its release ,and sadly no tralier at gdc.but at least remedy said soon.
Not much said that wasn't already stated.
I don't believe it is coming this year, but I said the same about Gears early last year.
Ok people make up your mind already lol. First you cant wait to see stuff and play a game, but as soon as its released you whine that they should have delayed it longer to do this and that, like Gears 2. Either shut up and wait for it so they can do it right or you want them to rush and make it suck? Honestly you waited 5-7 years already whats another one going to do. i personally like this approach it sucks but heck in the end it should be worth it.
I like how this game might turn out too be the 360"s Killzone. Years of hype and then it will come out and be either garbage or a Silent Hill 2 rip-off but will be praised cause it's on the 360. FAIL
whoa whoa whoa lol. I dont have a PS3 but from i heard Killzone 2 was awesome indeed. And second, just because its on the 360 im surprised its not getting bashed to hell for being on "low quality" machine that doesnt support HD. Yah right, if it was on the PS3 it would be another Halo Killer along as the Silent hill killer and be referred to in every thread and post like Killzone is now today.
