Alan Wake developer Remedy has told CVG that the game - a first episode in a planned series - will end on a 'cliffhanger'.
Well, that's spoiled the ending. Ever heard of dramatic tension and build up to have a shocking ending much Remedy?
Why would they say that? I wish I wouldn't have read this; still going to play it but it ruined dramatic tension for me somewhat...still can't wait to play it but wish Remedy kept their mouths shut.
Well, it look like those PS3 fanboys hell-bent on spoiling the game for Alan Wake fans need not bother, as Remedy has ALREADY FREAKIN' DONE IT.
Why would Remedy ruin their own game...DUH!
Did any of ACTUALLY READ the article.
"first episode in a planned series - will end on a 'cliffhanger'."
"However, Lake has also told us that the studio is not yet sure how the full Alan Wake story will end."
BTW TITLE IS MISLEADING, THEY JUST WANT HITS
That was an idiotic thing to spoil for us. Setting aside the fact that I abhor cliffhanger endings. It's like, "Hey, thanks for your sixty bucks. Be sure to come back and cough up another 60 bucks so you can have the decent ending." I know the game has already been told be be parts of a series, but that doesn't matter because it's possible to end a game on a proper note and then pick up again with a good sequel ala Uncharted 2.
Does that mean Luigi's Mansion 3 is confirmed? Nyuck nyuck nyuck! "I'd suggest all 360 fans avoid N4G during Alan Wake's release. There's a lot of angry PS3 fans (including myself) who are still pissed off about the Heavy Rain spoiler" LOL, I've got a feeling that if someone does reveal something, it will become a regular back and forth thing.
jus like too human... sigh why not give us a complete story and leave room for a sequel...
Actually, after reading a few other articles, I'm a little less worried about this "cliffhanger" they're talking about. It sounds like the main story will conclude well (as they've said before), but they'll probably add a little teaser at the very end just to leave it open (think Skeletor's "I'll be back" at the end of the He-Man movie).
Seriously though, the less I know about this game the better. I'd like to be surprised for once.
Well, go ahead and stoop to their level of immaturity. What faith can I have in humanity when they act like this? It's no longer going to be a case of "they started it first." It's going to spiral off for a few months and then you're all going to be a**holes to each other, and unbiased gamers such as myself are going to suffer. How can you call yourself a gamer if you will deliberately go and spoil the ending of a game for yourself and then spoil it for others? I didn't own a PS3 for 2 years while I had a 360, and I never spoiled PS3 games for me. You guys need to stop acting like children to each other.
alan ends up in a mental hospital, that's how it will end.
actually, I'm just guessing the ending. would makes sense, even though it would be a cop out.
Yup. You just beat me to it. He also made another account that starts with "Saa."
haha Band1t he used all his accounts to disagree with you because you have to be an idiot to not see who he is. That's why N4G's bubbles are a joke. He was down to 1 bubble for a reason but all he has to do is create a new account and his dribble continues.. EDIT: Oh look, he's already jumped to 6 bubbles (looks at comments) yup nothing but trolling 360 sections.
1. Have game in development for 6 years 2. Don't have a conclusion 3. ???? 4. PROFIT? I think if people are waiting this long for a game, they should see a conclusive ending.
like the game will end with Alan wake hanging on a cliff? :|
it's like they planned it from the beginning... in the meeting room..
"We gotta make sure the game ends as a cliffhanger... so we can milk the sh1t out of those idiots who paid 60 bucks for it... DLC pays well... !!"
i cant remember where
but i've read that the ending well be a DLC
Also Saa-Pharaoh Saa-Emperor = Saaking, and all these accounts are just a few hours to a day old :) 7 bubbles... B-b-busted! Anyway Alan Wake is a beast and a trilogy is perfect.
I dislike this trend of knowing everything about a game before it even comes out. It's REALLY gotta stop.
I understand the need for drumming up some excitement for a game, but there are ways to do it that aren't at the expense of the story. Especially not the ending, of all things.
cool, and then we wait 4 more years for them to release the sequel!
It won't be that long, most of the that time is taken up devoloping the game engine, Alan Wake 2 could here here a year after the orignal game releases. Take Killzone 2 for example, it took 3-4 years to finish but Killzone 3 could be here as early as this year.
lol so they are going to milk it, MOOOOOOOOOO
they said that they wanted it like a tv series, this being episode one(Or season one?) of alan wake
cant wait for that sequel in 2040!
Ratchet and Milk 12, SOCOM 7, SingStar 18 and Metal Gear Milk 8 say hi
Cliffhanger than your forced to pay for episodes :( to find out more. thats not fair.
Why was this approved? Sh1t guys, wtf? I didnt want to see this.
it deserves a 9.2 imo. finally a game thats not overrated halo reach.
I guess they ran out of disc space, lol.
Maybe the flash light batteries run out and in the last scene you see the energizer bunny and the zombie smoke monsters (or what ever they are) racing to get to Alan 1st and just before you know the game ends.
Ran out of disc space and it still looks better than anything on the PS3
I guess you never looked at those GOW3 vids huh.
Every interview along the way the Devs were saying that it's an episodic game. I believe the overarching storyline will not be answered just introduced while the subplots will provide some closure by the end of the game. However, the dangling carrot will be there at the end to make you buy DLC for episodes 2,3 and so on. Hopefully it will be good and the DLC won't cost $15+ making what should be a regular $60 dollar game bloat upto the $100 range.
The first episode in the game is a cliffhanger but there are many episodes in the game, just a like a TV show, soooo the ending to the whole game is unknown and will be till release :)
Alan's light shall shine upon the entire world and liberate us from Sony's tyranny. Praise Jesus and his eccentric daughter Satan!
its a differant type of game, i love it! it looks good, and i find this exciting because i only have 4 games 4 my xbox360 that i think are worth playing. l4d, gears 1 and 2, l4d2, and mass effect 2. and this. im excited because i dont have many games to play on my 360 other than these, and all of the games im looking forward to are all ps3 exclusives. on topic. again this game looks good.
Ahhhh.. It's all starting to make sense now. This is where MS love to take risks, when it comes to exploiting it's customers wallets to see how far they can take it. So here is the new trend. Make a game, hype it up, charge $60 but you don't get a full game you get a cliff hanger.. Then you have to buy another game for $60 (or DLC for $30) and then get to play the game a bit further and then guess what... another cliff hanger! So this is basically being charged several times to get a complete game/story I know people are going to defend this and say you are getting a full game but I don't believe it because what I described sounds exactly like something MS would do. This game is defiantly a rental until I know for sure I'm getting a full game here and not just being lead into a never ending pay out to MS/Remedy to actually get a complete story. Now if I'm wrong and this game has several episodes within the one game then I will surely be happy and retract my hypothesis.
Okay 2 disagrees so am I wrong?? Tell me I'm wrong! I hope I am. I will buy this game if I know it's going to give me a complete experience. I've only been waiting on it for the last 4 years.
The dlc does not contain the end of the story . Remedy have said many times they do not know how alan wake will end . There hoping it turns into a long franchise .
Yeah stupid Microsoft probably had something to do with the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Matrix Trilogy, Star Wars Trilogy, etc....
"a first episode" so VERYYYYYYYYYYY pathetic this.... /treadh.
wow this sucks if it comes out being a cliff hanger, but the way the article sounds, it seems like the route they are going.
HA HA>>> ALAN WAKE LOOKS LIKE CLIFFHANGER?>>>HA HA HA...... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
at the end of the game you'd want to hang yourself off a cliff. lol.
They've only spent 7 years making Wake, you can't expect them to finish it!
