Yeah I'm sure that'll stick.

There is a release date.

Geesh, I was starting to think this game would end up retiring as a geriatric concept in the retirement home of games that never were.

Bnet3433055d ago

Five years of development wow. Hope this game is good. I'm down with any type of horror game.

EvilCackle3055d ago

Nah, I think this date will stand. The game looks pretty much complete. I like that they didn't give it a holiday release. New IP's just don't do too hot when they're competing against Call of Duty and all those other sequels.

Imalwaysright3055d ago

And yet the best games of this generation imo are new IPs: Mass Effect, U2, GeOW, LBP, Bioshock, Demons Souls, Dead Space, ... RE5, GTA4, SCIV , Tekken, ... were a huge disappointment to me.

Hmmm I dunno if it's smart to have a collectors edition on a game no one knows they're gonna like. If I bought a collectors edition of a new game and ended up not liking the game, I'd be kind of pissed I have all this extra crap for nothing plus I paid more.

Oh well I'm sure dumb people who buy into the hype will waste their money on it.

MSFT must have some killer apps for the second half of the year with so many games coming in the first few months of this year. E3 is going to be off the hook. These games plus Natal will make it challenging for MSFT, when it comes to keeping up with 360 supply demands at retail at the end of this year.

Still a ways away but I can wait a few more months.

Now, this is a story all about how
Alan wake got flopped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became a game tester for this flop right here

In Remedy America played and made
In the gaming lounge was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And all killing zombies in sandbox styled school
When a couple of devs
Who were up to no good
Startin making trouble in my c++ compiler
I got in one little fight and my agency got scared
And said 'You're movin' with your corps and crew to Fin-Land'

I begged and pleaded with them day after day
But they packed my PS3 and send me on my way
They gave me a reimbursement and then they gave me my ticket.
I put my iPad on and said, 'I might as well kick it'.
First line of code... yo this is bad
Drinking Bawls Guarana out of a champagne glass.
Is this what the people of Fin-Land Living like?
Hmmmmm this might be alright.

But wait I hear there're prissy, xbox fanboys and all that
Is this the type of place that they should send this cool ps3 preferred cat?
I don't think so
I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for the Max Payne of Fin-Land

Well, the plane landed and when I came out
There was a dude who looked like Aaron Greenberg standing there with my name out
I ain't trying to get fired yet
I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared faster than Microsoft's NPD

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said Xbox and it had Banjo Kazooie in the mirror
If anything I can say that this cab was RARE
But I thought 'Nah forget it' - 'Yo homes to Espoo'

I pulled up to the suite about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes flop ya later'
I looked at my desk
I was finally there
To beta test Alan Wake, I could tell this was gonna be the king of despair
