From Igromir all the way back in June, the video from the full length demo is finally released and complete with new cliffhangers.
Godly lightning! Most likely 2010's GOTY.
I think it is premature to say something like GOTY 2010 where there are so many great games in 2010 that are announced and who knows how many that are unannounced for 2010. GOTY could also be Heavy Rain or God of War or something unannounced. Let's first wait and see who wins GOTY for 2009
colour me impressed, its great to see one long coherent play through rather than the small snippets we get from trailers because it really brings it alive when you get the steady progression in atmosphere. I am really liking this game and it feels really well polished even back in June so I cant wait to get. I won't say GOTY but I will say its in with a shot from just this small video.
Alan Wake is a beast that will be giving the 360 haters nightmares for a long time, Wake Up Raoh, its only a jealous dream. JOY
It's common knowledge that X360 is not capable of generating such a awesome graphic.Damn, this sh!t already ate my Uncharted 2 in every department (especially in graphic), so either it is Uncharted 3 with misleading title or my PS3 was just DEVOURED.
sick. day 1 purchase confirmed.
Geez, please, break this down for me. What do people see in this game that no other multiplatform game has not been able to do from a technical stand point? I'm looking at this and all I can think is, if this was multiplat (which is looks very easily like any other decent multiplat out there) would there be this gasping at anything shown for this title? It does seem like the 360 fans are forcefully hyping this game when there nothing that remotely sets it apart from any other multiplat game. If it's a great gaming experience then that's great but I don't see anything there that makes me gobb smacked in the slightest and I'd appreciate it if someone can educate me on this.
Just watched the entire thing and I'm sorry but this game is rubbish and I use that strong term cause of 1) the developer pedigree and 2) this is supposed to be an exclusive that show cases the capabilities of the 360hardware in year 4. This thing is nothing more than a normal gaming experience. You you're hyping NPC chatter when you turn off the light then there's somthing wrong here. Turn flash light on NPC but he doesn't flinch or physically react to the light but just engages the script voice over and that's being flawned? Animations are dated, texturings on NPC are matted, low rez and flat, gameplay flare fire slow down mechanic looks like it'll get old.. really really fast. I mean come on, if this wasn't an exclusive it wouldn't have 1/5th the attention it does now. This isn't flamming, it's what I see with my own 2 eyes. This hyping of normal average gaming has gotten out of hand. This is Alone in the Dark 2, nothing more. If the 360 base didn't go wild for Alone in the Dark 1 on current gen consoles then I'm not understanding what the hype is about with this title. I just don't get it.
@Chubear This title is not hyped because of the exclusivity (at least not for me), but because it's made by the developers of Max Payne. Sure, it may have standard visuals and so on, but what I really like about this game is the story written by Sam Lake. The setting and characters of the game. Alan Wake is also build around open-world technology which really takes some recources from the console. But I am not fan of graphics. I like the atmosphere more.
So what if it's done be Remedy? Haze was done by well known and high pedigree developers with the Time Splinter series, Lair was done by Factor 5, a critically acclaimed developer house. The fact that the game is done by Remedy only makes what I see mediocre cause we expect high quality things from them. I look at that and there's nothing there just force hype to rubbish. ..and please, don't keep spewing that "open world technology" PR talking ponit bruhaha. It make you look like a sheep. This game isn't open world. It's similar in path to many other survival horror games we've seen in the past like the Silent Hill or Resident Evil series. If at one point in time, many years ago it was supposed to be, well it isn't now. It being on a console has nothing to do with it not being able to be done cause their are open world games on consoles already so I don't get what you're trying to say. Sorry but to me, when gamers hail games like this, we can't blame editorial gaming sites or PR groups all the time. WE are the ones holding back gaming from our own selves when we accept mediocrity as top quality.
Even from cam footage this game looks amazing. After seeing footage of Mass Effect 2 over at Joystiq and this, I'm convinced the XBox 360 still has a full tank of gas left in it.
Well the reviews will tell the reality once this game is released.
you know dam well a ps3 exclusive or a MP is going to get GOTY....(all fanboyism aside)But dam when are we going to ever be able to play this? Sh!7 been in development for like 6 years.....jeez....hope this isn't another "too human".
Looks really good, probably one of, if not, the best 360 exclusive game ever. The character models are still not that good, Uncharted and Heavy Rain kinda blow them out of the water. But the audio seems really good, like natural talking similar to Uncharted 2. Also the light mechanic looks amazing when fighting enemies, but I still don't like how there is a high powered beam of light in the middle, seems strange. Looks like Remedy are wanting to make a great Survival Horror franchise, because I can see this game becoming like Silent Hill. Also it kinda looks like what Alone in the Dark should have been. Those that have played the earlier AITDs (not the latest crap) will know what I'm talking about. Can't wait, my most anticipated 360 game after Splinter Cell.
Holy Sh1t. This game will be a Must have in 2010.
There is one issue that could cause this game to fail............ What kind of batteries are in that flashlight? LMFAO
Who cares about What type of Batteries the Flash light uses. Stop worrying about the minor Details and enjoy the sweet footage.
same batteries Nathen Drake using
Well we already know Nathan uses AAA batteries (haha) not sure how this game will pan out this is one of the only reasons I still have a 360 today I hope it's as good as people claim it is.
I guess there are tornadoes in here . Great stuff .
That was really amazing.
This long over due flash light game will probably have about 5 hours worth of game play, thanks to dvd9.
Your weapon is a flashlight.....oh my...how epic.... A movie about something like this would flop at the box office.. This just seems like an "In the Mouth of Madness" ripoff... And that movie sucked.. Flashlights, flares, and generators.....imagine the possibilities!!..lol..... The skill this man must possess to turn on a flashlight!!!!!
I was waiting for some more footage after E3 that was shown. This actually showed how plain the game is. Shame as i was looking forward to this.
You Dont know anything about games do you
I hope the awesome moments in the game are actually gameplay and not cutscenes. Uncharted 2 did this particularly well so I'm hoping Alan Wake, although a story driven game, will do some of the same. The lighting looks good and the textures are nice. There is a bit of screen tearing here and there, but hopefully that will be ironed out before release. EDIT: I'm hoping that disagree I got is because the person wants the story to be told via cutscenes. The rest of my post is fact and is hopeful and positive.
Screen tearing on online videos is often actually the video playback rather than the game I believe. The devs have stated on the official forums that there is no screen tearing.
Have to talk about other games...on the 360 postes...why...i dont give a sh*t about Uncharted 2...how about you go and play it...and stop talking s*it in here plz
One of the devs on the official forums had confirmed that the tearing may be cause by only a video artifact. Markus has said that Alan Wake should not tear.. Here's the link: http://forum.alanwake.com/s...
the games looks good
If I was Wake and I could use the car, I would of got the Fukc outta Dodge. I'll find a new wife, and there ain't a cops flashlight in this world that would save my a$$.
It's not a Dodge, it's a Jeep. ;)
I prefer games and movies in daylight.
Alan Wake has daylight time too. Actually the game devs can control the time of day and weather as they like.
is That flashlight or a Lightsaber
Ummm... Played it, it's called Resident Evil 4. No seriously, this reminded me of the village...
Hell to yes it is!!!!
GOTY 2010 hope to see all platforms push pass the limits!!!
if you play this with 5.1ch you have to change your panties every 5 minutes.
Very Good game, but 2010 have lot of other good games. Plus: Poor envoirment physics / interaction Bad torch effect when pointed @ long distance... too unrealistic. ANyway, a very good game.
geez well thats ruined the game, it has some slightly off torch effect at a distance from a june build
Cant wait to See Day Gameplay! Conviction , Alan Wake , Mass Effect 2 and FF XIII made my 2010 1st 6 months very good for gaming!
This will be 2010's 'FOTY' (Flop Of The Year). It's a flippin torch simulator that's very bad at simulating light.
alan wake= heavy rain with proper gameplay
Yeah so um... you're not a fanboy ;) *cough* jackass *cough*
alan wake=silent hill rip off
So you're telling me bold faced that you look at that and then can clearly say you'd rather experience what you just saw than what you're seen from a game like Heavy Rain? THAT"S CRAZY! Gad, what is wrong with gamers this gen?! Is this console war really like that? You'd willing support mediocrity at any cost as long as your console "wins"? .. wow. That's loco. ... so, when I look at it, had a game like HAZe been 360 exclusive, you would have supported it 100% but since it's on the PS3 it's "teh worst FPS EVA!!!" wow, crazy!
I've been waiting a good 4 years for this game. I am so hyped from this footage....the E3 one didn't get me excited. I gonna have to buy this game and take back my 360 from my little cousin when it comes out. IDK but i reminds me of that supernatural show but with only one person. I hope they fix the voice acting cause that fat guy was horrible
LOL at the flashlight...why need bullets when you got a flashlight game should be called flashlight wake
Definitely worth a go, I really like Alan's running and dodge animations, sweeeeet.
This is not only a boring game but it's a totaly stupid.
The flashlight lighting has been much improved indoors. Can't wait. Edit: It does look a little unrealistic outdoors though, for the record. Hopefully that gets improved.
alan wake = alone in the dark
PS3: It Only Does Everything including unbelievable amount of hatred towards the other gaming platforms.
It kind of reminds me of alone in the dark. Interesting though. Are those flying things Kryll?
