CVG: Remedy has branded Alan Wake its "masterpiece" - and revealed that the success of its Max Payne games gave it leeway to take its time over the upcoming psychological thriller.
Super excited to play your "masterpiece" Remedy!!! Day one.
I guess the long development cycle payed off.
LOVE hearing this!!! Played the Max Payne games and those games we're incredible! Now it's better live up to expectations.
Well considering that games like Max Payne and Half Life 2 took over 5 years to make, I guess long dev cycles aren't all that bad.
Well I think as good as it looks it wont succeed very well ont eh 360 because of the genre you will give me crap load of disagrees on here because you 360 fans but the fact is after alone in the dark I doubt this kind of game will sell very well in this day and age just not enough people are interested in it anymore. You can disagree all you like as "its and exclusive" so it has to succeed in you view Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts or whatever it was called was an exclusive but yeah wrong platform and BANG! crap sales.. 0.69m worldwide since launch... compare to halo or gears and you get the picture..
Alone in the Dark was crap though vhero, that's probably why it didn't sell well.
how long before somebody over at neogaf runs their little spectron analyzer and counts the pixels and says it's 576p or something like that? I am optomistic about this game but I just hate the pixel counters trying to ruin the moment. Let the game get released and let people enjoy it and don't worry if it runs at 1440p or 320i. Ok...rant over. Everyone enjoy the rest of your day.
You honestly think the game won't reach past the 1 million mark? It may not reach halo/ gears status but it will do well for itself. Ps3 gamers ( myself included ) often say that sales doesn't matter as much, especially if it has over the amount that warrants a sequel. So why should this be any different? Also, i think people have been unfairly judging this game based on how bad Alone in the Dark was. Two different games by two different companies
This game should sell very well. PS has some amazing titles, but I feel a lot of people bought it for blu-ray capabilities rather than its great games. Alan Wake has a lot of potential, but until the release date I will keep my skepticism.
We'll be the judge of that thank you.
You won't be judging anything, you don't own an Xbox.
So how exactly are you going to be able to judge the game? Edit) BeaArthur you beat me to it I thought the same thing when reading his comment.
Even if this game turned out of be great, PS3 fanboys would downplay it. There happen to be PS3 fanboys that own 360s who think that they can criticize 360 games for that reason. But you see, a fanboy is a fanboy is a fanboy. Fanboys are idiots, so their "judgments" are unreliable.
Even if he does not own a 360, is the PC version cancelled? Serious question, as I haven't followed in a little while. I'll be playing the 360 version, since I don't game on my PC anymore
They downplay anything that's on 360 because it's simply not on PS3 and then turn around and agree with themselves. Don't let these desperate couple of Sony fanboys fool us into thinking they speak for all PS3 owners by creating tons of accounts. If the world were this blind we would have ran into the sun by now.
@kaveti Stop acting like victims. I constantly see xfans downplaying PS3 games, may be it's not you but for sure this is not a PS3 fanboy issue.
deeznuts...as far as I know there is no PC version, or at least not anymore. I could be wrong on that though. Al Bundy...first, of all no one is going to believe that you ever owned a 360. Second, it really took you 4 RRoD to get rid of it? Slow learner are we? Why would you bother having it fixed 4 times to then give it away, I smell BS.
You guys are right, I don't own a 360 anymore. After the 4th RROD I got rid of it and never looked back. Don't need it. I played Mass Effect 2 on my PC. Alan Wake will go to PC eventually, if it's good. As far as judging the game, I was going to go by sales since that's what's most important to you guys.
Remedy said it was up to microsoft as to whether or not there would be a pc version so I guess microsoft wanted them to just focus on the console version. It seems like that's the new strategy at microsoft. Ip's that are owned by microsoft like halo reach, fable 3, alan wake etc are only releasing on the 360 while third parties are allowed to release games for 360/pc but they aren't really enhanced just quick console to pc ports like mass effect 2 and splinter cell conviction.
I own Playstations, thats it. I had a free Xbox but I gave it away. Mass Effect 2 is one 360 game that I would LOVE to play on my PS3. Alan Wake I am not sold on but it has my interest. And IMO, for every bash by a PS3 fan on a 360 exclusive, I see many more in ratio to PS3 exclusives bashed by 360 fans INCLUDING some sites like Edge.
Really? REALLY!? This is not a PS3 fanboy issue? Then what fanboy issue is it? Are there 360 fanboys who go around saying the 360 is garbage? Are there 360 fanboys who go around saying that every 360 game sucks? No. So, this particular incident is indeed a PS3 fanboy issue. What do you want me to do in this case? Do you want me to bring up 360 fanboyism in a thread where the PS3 fanboys are acting like idiots? I call them out when I see them. If you don't believe me, check my comment history. Not an hour ago I told a 360 fanboy in the Nvidia GTX 480 thread to stop being an idiot when he bashed the PS3. And you're one to talk Raztad. You may not be a blatant fanboy, but I've never seen you call out any PS3 fanboys, ever. If you're more willing to call out 360 fanboys but never say anything against PS3 fanboys, then I have to assume you're a PS3 fanboy, too. In which case, what the hell are you doing in a 360 only game thread?
Raztad does have a point that it happens both ways but then goes of and kills it all by suggesting it's ok. Not sure why you would come in and defend Bundy seeing he's trolling which is why I think your the same person. When I see a 360 gamer trolling I never get involved in that crap. Quit playing Raztad and grow up seriously.
@beans WTF are you talking about? your latest posts have been crappier by the day. You are turning into another x-boy. I didnt come to defend AI Bundie just to replay kaveti and the whole "PS3 fanboy are the bad we are the victims" charade. It's about time to stop that sh!t. I never tried to imply trolling another people games is a right thing to do.
Man, Al Bundy, you're such an obvious stealth troll.
unless Raztad edited his post,, he never said anything to defend Bundy, he only pointed out that its not just ps3 gamers that downplay games on a different system
My bad! Miss understood where you were coming from. Disregard my last comment.
Why are you guys having a real conversation with beans? He knows that is goes both ways because he is the other side. A sampling of beans: Why don't you guys post some KZ2 VS Metro 2033 shots. I can tell you right now Metro looks better. edit holy orange: Yes it is although it has some rough spots. View 4 days 18 hours ago Carlton Maybe because it never had the throne! Everybody has an opinion and just because Sony fanboys and media claim it the best doesn't mean it's true. Now before you start making your claims I give UC2 GOTY also for 2009 due to not much going against it. @anorexorcist: "Hey kid, we are not talking about a toilet here" WTF lol All I'm saying is not everyone has to agree with another mans opinions. Edit anorexorcist: Ok now your getting carried away. The 360 just last week took back the graphics crown with Metro 2033. Sure there's Last guardian and Alan Wake on the way but don't be a fool thinking PS3 is somehow on a different level. Just because one console puts out the next best thing doesn't automatically mean it's untouchable. View 5 days 2 hours ago Ok great comparison but where are the Metro 360 vs KZ2 shots? View 5 days 18 hours ago Not impressed one bit! Hopefully Sony can get there move motion controller up to par by E3. View 5 days 19 hours ago I never said PS3 wasn't doing anything. What I did say was this so called weak system has two games doing things know PS3 game is doing. edit below: "like Last Guardian and Uncharted 2 don't have any artistic or design aspects to talk about, its just pretty" Nobody's talking about those games lol. "wow you're such a fanboy you actually miss out on the best games out this gen =P i laugh at you" How do you know what i miss out on? Just because i prefer 360 dpesn't mean i miss out on anything. "i also laugh at the fact you say there isn't anything of quality on PS3, but you are expecting reach to be something worth mentioning" When did I say there was nothing of quality on PS3? And Reach will be the talk of 2010 so what are you babbling about? "Halo = Twilight Hollywood crap for pre-teens, but it sells, so why change it" You soiund like a preteen yourself so whats your point? br4:"like the amazing piece of s**t demo of splinter cell that was suppose to be a AAA game" Who said anything about Conviction which was a really good Demo? "I am excited for AW, but you can't be serious" Sure you are! View 5 days 19 hours ago Yeah but from what's been shown of Halo Reach (and even Alan Wake) there's nothing on PS3 that is doing anything they are technically. View 5 days 21 hours ago They didn't want it to but it did. The problem is not one reviewer is even going into depth on it's visuals. Shame really but there will be other exclusives out shortly that even further the gap. View 5 days 21 hours ago No not a KZ2 killer but it does have it's moments that outshine KZ2 graphically. View
anyone else excited for the day that bundy gets down to a single bubble? back on topic, to be honest I am an avid gamer and the game just does not do it for me. Maybe I just have not done enough research into it. Probably not a day 1 buy for me, BUT once I hear what some reviews and some of my regular customers shed some light on how good they think the game is I may give it a shot. Hopefully I am wrong though seeing as how I LOVED max payne. Maybe I should just give remedy the benefit of the doubt. I may be too wrapped up in reach's beta though :/
@Biggest Come on dude, not need to post such a wall of text just to attack beans. @Beans No problem man. Just let's move on. I hope AW turns out to be as good as Remedy is hyping it to be. They are the makers of Max Payne, some pedigree right there. To tell the true this kind of game appeals me much more than Halo. If really good I might get a xbox for it, shadow complex, metro 2033 (this might come to the PS3 though) and perhaps ME2.
Its sad Raztad got so many disagrees on his comment. People love to play the victim.
Alan Wake Limited Edition For ME \(-_-)/ day 1
Same here. Have a lot of faith in Remedy and the collectors edition seems to be the best i have seen in a long time based on the content.
How old are you? 35? 36? Aren't you a little old to be trolling?
Here we go again, didn't I just call you out on this last week? You NEVER stay on topic. This article has nothing to do with anything else but ALAN WAKE. Yet, you come here and comment about PS3 have better games and comparing graphics. Listen, yes, this site is about gamers coming here and talking about games. That's what some people do here. On the other hand, people like you come to 360 articles and trash talk. How can you say this is the last year you will game on a 360 when you have no idea of what is to be released in 2011? Come on, you hear how stupid that sounds? That's like me saying I will never buy the Playstation 4 because I didn't enjoy MAG or White Knight Chronicles. Yeah, makes no sense, right? Just stick to talking about what the article is and you won't look like such a troll. Every comment of yours is the same, "I like this, but I really hate the 360 and won't play it anymore." Dude, for someone who rarely games on the 360 and prefers the PS3, you sure enjoy posting in 360 related articles.
agreed, people who really don't judge games, but the platforms, I hardly can call gamers. Worshipping a piece of plastic and electronics, or a company, has nothing to do with games. Consoles are just tools to bring THE GAME into your screen. Really, if game is good, it is good, neverthles it is on X0, PS3, or WII.
as a ps3 owner im just not hype for this but i am more interested in Halo Reach and Splinter Cell.
can't wait http://www.gamersyde.com/ne...
"The title has been delayed numerous times since it was first announced by Microsoft, but a release date of May 18th in the US and May 21st in Europe has now been set in stone." I tought Remedy announced it before Microsoft came along? They were pretty much promoting the game looking for publisher, and MS took it. After that, looooong silence.. Anyways, I believe/hope Remedy will give us a masterpiece, they are promising. "We didn't foresee that this project would take so long, but what we did know is that we could only be as good as our latest game. " I like the sound of that. EDIT: below: Nice to see fellow finns in here. Yes, it's a bit downer that we have to wait it few days. I just hope it gets the attention in finnish media what it deserves. It's one of the biggest things in entertainment-products Finland has put out to the world.
Coffee Pot, I'll think of you my Finnish brother, when I play on the 19th, and you have to wait that extra 3 days. Kinda of weird that it's coming from Finland but you get it 3 days later then us ex patriots living in North America.
Just as I respect most of the PS3 first party developers who put their 100% effort into the end product, I respect remedy for their intense and long hard work towards Alan Wake. Even if the game does not appeal much to me (due to the horror aspect), I have to tip my hat for developers (Remedy in this case) who give their best into releasing a great video game experience.
give up microsoft
give up mods
Awesome, I'm going to rent it first since I am very cautious of new IP's these days But if I like it, I'll buy the limited edition :)
I hope Remedy don't bite off more than they can chew. It will be very hard to top Max Payne 1. THIS game was a true masterpiece which still looks and plays very well even today.
lets hope so..
God do ps3 owners really want this game? I don't lmao
Do you think you could stop making Squall accounts? I've seen like 4-5 accounts pop up within the last week or so, all with Squall in their name.
uh nice flashlight and stuff... hardy har har.
It must suck being such a loser. Get laid. You'll feel much better about yourself ;)
seriulsy im so sick of these jerks ruining the game. I love reading the comments but even though i loved HR i knew the killer and it really ruined it for me. So this will be my last comment section for alan wake until i beat it and even though i havent played it im a gambling man and i say this game will equal EPIC in all caps
FVCKING DAY ONE ... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . FLOP.
first u know because of the whole fighting a harvest machine wit a flashlight incident.but if i like it then its on
Can't wait to play it! =)
FLOP have a nice day =)
Fact: PS3 has the highest rated exclusives this generation Fact: 360 has not had an exclusive for 6 months
Fact: 360 is Maxed out. Have a nice day ChavBot!!! ;-D
It is so funny seeing people that can't afford one of them bash it like mad, so funny
...this is starting to sound more and more like too human. I love the phantom disagree-rs. Nice. Considering the fact that I have both a 360 and a ps3, I am not a fanboy, but they keep releasing these statements. "Alan Wake is our masterpiece" "It's official: Alan Wake is better than sliced bread" "Alan Wake is Christ, now go to church" "Alan Wake tells you things, buy it now or die in weird ways".
"Considering the fact that I have both a 360 and a ps3, I am not a fanboy" Why would owning both consoles not make you a fanboy? This is quite possibly the first time Remedy has stated that this game is amazing and is their masterpiece, but I like the other made-up quotes you posted. I own a PC, 360, PS3, and Wii, and could consider myself a PC fanboy. Just because you own them all, doesn't mean you're unbiased. The definition of fanboy as is: "A fan, short for fanatic and sometimes also called aficionado or supporter, is a person with an intense, occasionally overwhelming liking and enthusiasm for something."
I can't see any similarity to TH. It was in developmnent, what, 10 years? And changed platform 3 times, using existing unreal engine. Remedy have made in-house engine and Awake 5 years, and this is maybe first time they go as far and call AW theyr own masterpiece. Makes kinda sense to feel some feeling of success to finish your work after so long time with so small team, and finally get it out soon. So one lovely phantom-disagree from me ;) For the rest, I totally agree with Arnon.
Actually, Too Human wasn't even able to use the Unreal Engine. Apparently they ran into conflict before the actual development for the 360 version began, and had to use something else.
Fanboy-o-meter Agree: X360 Fanboy Disagree: PS3Fanboy
its silly. unless you have stock in the companies. im sure alan wake is going to be an amazing game. just look at it. granted we all have different opinions but take off your fanboy glasses and see the world in an open viewpoint.
excited for SC:C than this and tbh the SC:C demo was kinda underwhelming
I am really waiting to see what is this game is capable of.but 4x anti aliasing is damn amazing.
Arnon - I somewhat agree with your comment. Yes, I had fun making up the other quotes. A fanboy, by the standard definition as you quote it is not just when your a fan of something, but like you said it, have an "intense, occasionally overwhelming liking and enthusiasm for something." By that definition, and for the main reason why I DID include all consoles in my statement is not because I am completely unbiased, nobody can be entirely objectionable by any means. but. As most words lose their meaning, and people take terms by the ass and throw new things into the mix. If someone called me a fanboy by this new meaning, it would be because I was biased towards one console, due mainly to the reason why I couldn't afford other consoles or remained ignorant of the fact that every console has it's charms. I say that while I DO lean towards the ps3, I like you, follow 360 games, even though (like a bad relationship) had to fix my RRODed beauty to the point where I stripped it, cut and shaped a Apple Jacks box inside near the fans for better ventilation, and other things all for the sake of it working as it should. It's a bitter past, and I do often hold a grudge against the console. But, even that, can't take hold of my affection for some of the 360's games. I do not consider myself a fanboy by it's newly revised meaning, where I "troll" from board to board like some mindless, soulless adolescent child, laying the smack down with my keyboard and it's magic to produce words of hate, angst, annoyance or flat out stupidity on subjects I either had not known of or cared about in the first place. by your definition, I do consider myself a fanboy-lite. Someone who appreciates games as it used to be, and not the foot soldier willing to defend or fight on behalf of a company that didn't need the help in the first place. A company, like Sony, Nintendo, or Microsoft that see's hateful comments, and smiles down like some proud parent watching their kid produce god awful crayon drawings in Art Class and thinking how "cute" it is that the said child wanted to become the next Monet.
Perfect time to release it right after the movie "The Matrix" you had a mechanic that ACTUALLY works on top of the noir-type gripping story. I hope I get to relive that moment in this game. -End statement
my collectors edition is already pre-ordered!!!
Fact: This is about an xbox exclusive so what are you doing in here talking about ps3 exclusives. Your mom doesn't love you and we sure as hell don't either son. Take a hike kid.
