Detailed new video analysis of Alan Wake.
No wonder the environments are so atmospheric.
That's some great tech behind the game: http://img51.imageshack.us/...
I almost need to go out and pre-order it; rewatched it a few to many times already..
Hopefully they will continue doing the RDR style trailers.
I love the atmosphere of the game, but that's al. But it cost allot of the graphics aspect, i don't know about the gameplay of this game, but that's must be see when the game come out.
ME2 didn't have one in Europe (atleast not my country), hope this one will (it's my most wanted game sofar).
Uh oh! Even with my unenhanced eyeballs, I could detect framerate drops when the camera moved through the scene quickly. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE the weather effects.
This video is the most awesome evar. Is it on Xbox Live?
i tough that it was going to be an Storm but no it just stop raining. pick one if you need it > http://www.manorhg.com/stor...
A Perfect game = Alan Wake and Graphically best looking game to date.
As far as I love Alan Wake, no game can be perfect, but it looks like to be a strong storydriven experience that will be remembered after many years.
Ha you made a funny? The should change the title to "it took us five years to build the tech that makes sub HD". I might want to pick this and a 360 up, but for real these graphics aren't the best looking to date.
You think the games that 'bad' why even bother commenting? Report his azzz!
Hmm looks like HD to me. If it's sub hd then that's pretty bad that they made it look better than most hd games out there. Hd or sub hd either way it's going to be an amazing game.
Mitteaffen report me for what speaking the truth? This is the open zone or maybe your a noob to n4g. I'm interested in this game but what tech are they speaking of it's 570p so stfu. And to jtx it's not hd and it will matter if you have a tv bigger than 32'' so you stfu as well. Phucking bots.
You have no idea? That slow eh? Alright let me break this down to you in bits that you can handle. You dont walk into a NY yankees game and talk shiz about the team in front of everyone; you'd get the crap kicked out of you. So, me reporting you is a substitute for that. You dont come on the 'Home' boards of the fans and start riping without expecting retaliation; your immature and childish comments arnt wanted on the internet. Make your own article and have it talk about whatever you want.
Me...a bot? Lmao I own a PS3 and have defended numerous PS3 games on this site. God forbid some people can be excited about a game thats not on the PS3.
mitten let me break it down to a level your inbred @ss can relate to. I was responding the dbag two comments above my original, who was talking nonesense. And if you weren't reponding to me I'm sorry fir the harshness. But if you were phuck off and the yanks are a bunch of over paid bums. If there were a salary cap they would be tied for last place in the east with the pink suxs. And jtx if you know anything about me I'm interested in this game as well I've said it times before in other threads. And I have been here a long time but for the life of me I've never seen you defend a ps3 title. Mabye you have in the gamer zone. Like I said I was responding to someone who was fud. While I was speaking the truth which is nothing to be reported for like some little pu$$y. Can't take the open zone stay in the gamer zone loser ( mitten ).
"A Perfect game = Alan Wake and Graphically best looking game to date." I don't disagree with you.
wow... look at cyborg cry.
Hmm, all you seem to care and emphasis about is the game being subhd and ignore pretty much everything that the video stated. Have even bother watching the video at all? Metal Gear Solid 4 is in subhd and took at least the same amount of time to develop, and yet it manages to perfect score across the board. Let me give a short summary of what Alan Wake has to offer: Real time weather simulation (none of that pre-rendered bullcrap), extensive character light and animation; and near match clone of brightfalls using THOUSANDS of on location photos, hundreds of hours of video footage, and real time modeling. All these technology combined for goal in mind and that is make the most immersive and most memorable game this generation. I really can't wait until this game comes out and the reviews hit the net so fanboys like you will shut up and be put into place.
Holy **** that looks insane. Remedy are very passionate about their tech and you can tell a lot of love went into modeling their world. I LOVE the weather simulation it looks perfect.
The tech behind Alan Wake is indeed impressive, I wonder how Remedy will use it for future titles or if they will be licensing it out to other developers.
I know that, I've played around with game engines before. I'm more interested in the engine itself, the implementation in Alan Wake so far is looking great. Also, the game is kind of running in HD, only some effects are in 547p IIRC?
@Greywulf I actually thought your post was legit until I read the last sentence. You are just giving yourself an image of troll.
How does that change the legitimacy of his post? Try this one on for size. The president of the United States of America is Barack Obama. He is black. While the ending statement may offend fanboys of another creed, the fact still remains that life is what it is. In this case we see that Alan Wake uses a game building engine. Many other developers have been doing this type of engine for years. Most people don't know anything about making a video game. So things like this seem more impressive than they may be. Uncharted 2 does it with the lights on all of the time. See how I added that last part? Yeah, some people don't like Uncharted 2 because they're clearly racist. But that doesn't make anything I said untrue.
Killzone 2 and LittleBigPlanet used even Ray-Tracing: a feature never seen in video games and impossible to achieve on any other processor exept the cell processor!
Saw this on Youtube a while ago...The lighting looks very impressive. Side note: Yaay! I can comment now! :D With my whole 4 bubbles!
Looks like Remedy but a lot of work into this, can't wait to play the end result!
This game can compete with ps3 AAA titles..like uncharted and heavy rain Amazing Graphics :)
That comment will get you banned on N4G lol
No, it can't compete with those PS3 exclusive. The graphics is almost to dark to see in dark atmosphere. This game runs in SUB HD. Also the number of NPC in a screen is not as much as in GOW3/Kilzzone2/Heavy Rain or Uncharted 2. Nowhere compete with Killzone2/Uncharted 2/Heavy Rain and GOW3.
Uncharted/Uncharted 2, no. Heavy Rain, God of War 3, Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell, yes. There is no way that Alan Wake will be Game of the Year 2009. It won't happen. If it does, I will eat a Xbox 360 for lunch every day for the entire year of 1980.
Are the people disagreeing with my comment going to buy a copy of Alan Wake and jump into their hot tub to help it win Game of the Year 2009?
I'm 100% certain it won't win any game of the year 2009 awards. 2010 Awards though, that's a whole different story... If you're going to troll at least do it right.
do you really need 1080 p ?? i mean this isn't 1080p and it looks fu**ing great :D
"It just seems that when you do use these processes, it taxes the 360's hardware. Which is why the game runs in a sub Hd resolution. We have yet to see a 360 game perform game rendering like this in a solid 720p + resolution, and its odd considering it uses the full power of the 360 according to the video." You do know that the PS3 uses "tricks" like the Xbox360 to get around these things? Like using MLAA instead of MSAA and NOA32 instead of real HDR and sometimes not using realtime shadow effects. Using higer precision HDR taxes ALL consoles. Not just the PS3. Yes we know....the PS3 is a super computer more powerful than god...Sony told us this,,,,, "The graphics is almost to dark to see in dark atmosphere. This game runs in SUB HD" Like KZ2? "Also the number of NPC in a screen is not as much as in GOW3/Kilzzone2/Heavy Rain or Uncharted 2." And you played Alan Wake to know this Real Killer?
K2 is 720p, Just some Fx like explosions within the 720p image are lower res. Edit. And Yes I will be getting AW. Tech wise, Nothing to really harp on about, but game wise should be a great title.....
there is no tricks,they just use a new ways for programing.
Its one of my must buy games and it does look good. I am surprised noone has mentioned the fog in all the shots where they are showing draw distance.. Just take a look see again
You cannot praise a xbox360 game on N4G.com or mention the draw distance either. Because you do now, only the PS3 can have draw distance in its games...not the Xbox360 or even the PC...You will get disagrees from guys like Real Killer who will say: "DEPTH OF FIELD!!!" And he does not even know what that means.....
^ Blind DAs are only making fools of themselves especially when they know they are disagreeing with the truth.. Perhaps someday they will realize how petty, lame and shallow they are. DA with a comment is fine.... I was expecting someone to say there is no fog and lack of DOF and prove it...thats fair...but as usually gutless DAs....
ill admit it the graphics do look sick. lets see how the final product turns out.
"Greywulf= >Quaz51< and >alanwakeWOKEUPAT540p< @3.2 Yes the game is a mixture of resolutions; Quaz51 tested the lowest resolution parts of the game and ran with it. It would be the same thing as somebody testing Killzone 2's sub HD parts[some effects like explosions] and running around starting flame bait bouts all over the web smearing the game." This is what ALL fanboys do not want to hear: ALL CONSOLE games run in subhd at points in the game because the hadrware cannot handle it. You can only get so far with 512megs of ram and 5 year old GPU or CPU technology. Yes, i said it. I am pointing at the PS3 and Xbox360
This game is gonna be off the hook.
Unfortunately it seems a lot of people still think the resolution is the bar for a realistic looking game. This unfortunately is not the case, a multitude of things must be taken into consideration. Weather Effects, polycount, drawdistance, AA, Resolution, AF, Framerate, etc. etc. I can run The Sims at 2048+ resolution, doesn't really directly translate that its better looking than a totally different game. You can only compare it to the same game at different resolutions. Mood was remedy's primary concern. This is one of the best looking games this generation for both systems, certainly up to par and then some to any AAA title released on any system. Both systems are capable of top notch graphics, lets give the programmers and designers some credit.
correct; but its hard sometimes going from 1920x1200 on PC to low res some times.
thats Just Pure Amazing and Pleasure for the eyes
whether that's cut scenes only and/or all the time/in game, it's looking beautiful and sick as all hell and I'm going to make an easy guess that it's a true GOTY contender. possibly with very little challenge to the title. Many great games are due this year though but AW has it all going on in spades. I have the full week off upon it's release and I plan on marathoning this game til i can't see. ha ha, adult diapers and pizza all week:)
The opaque geometry buffer is the single MOST important measuring stick for a game to render, it is the foundation and the sheer bulk of the on screen render, this is how pixel counters determine whether a game is HD or sub HD. Since Alan Wake is rendering a 960 x 540 opaque geometry buffer, you can see it's almost half of the typical HD res 1280 x 720. One can imagine the huge amount of processing power and memory it can save for other effects thus it's nothing special technically speaking when compared to HD games like Uncharted 2, Gow3 and Kz2. All games use quarter res buffers for post processing effects including alan wake, and that's not unique to KZ2 like one of you suggested so it's a moot point. In the end, Alan Wake has to sacrifice the bulk of its rendering res down to a miserable 960 x 540p just to have similar effects of other HD heavy hitters. It's easy to conclude now which game is more technically or graphically advanced does it not?
Game looks pretty & beastly.
MR LOOKINGBILL IS IN THE HOUSE PS3 FANBOYS.
And then what? You gonna give some bullsh!t line about the 360 being better because you say so. Come get some billy boy.
wow, very nice, I'm really excited about this game
i have a ps3 cyborg just hate ps3 fanboys there attitude and what they stand for...Why don't you go do yourself a favor and go get an 360 and enjoy gaming from both consoles instead of being this mindless droid that thinks Sony is God.
