gamrFeed's Chris M. Arnone sat down with Remedy CEO Matias Myllyrinne at DICE 2011 and talked about Alan Wake, DLC, and the upcoming remake of Death Rally on iOS.
I think Alan Wake was a game hurt by 360 exclusivity. It was a good game, but the more people that could have played it (being somewhat niche), the more likely Alan Wake 2 would be getting made.
red dead redemption killed Alan Wake... It was retarded of MS to launch it the same day as rdr.. and i was kinnda surprised that MS wasn't advertising it as much as it does its other exclusives.
Not enough shooting in Alan Wake.....Not well received on XBOX 360.
My problem with Alan Wake was the lack of variety in the game play. It was all.. Shine your flash light then shoot the bad guy over and over again. Power is out, find the generator...
Alan Wake isn't the typical game for the 360 audience.
This last year was really* good to the western genre. Not saying they should've went toe to toe with a R* game but I don't think anyone expected a non GTA game, let alone a game set in the western times, to sell that* much. Also SMG2 released like that same week. And I still have to get Alan Wake.
the same could be said for heavy rain, its a niche game and it was exclusive yet it sold well, the difference with HV was the audience on the PS3 it may sound like BS but i think this is true, 360 gamers like there FPS over most other genres while the PS3 gamers are more varied
Alan Wake 2 should go multi platform to succeed financially
@Persistantthug play alan wake or watch some youtube vids before you make retarded comments like that.. alan wake had too much shooting imo.. game was still fun but it felt more like max payne with a flashlight than a horror/thriller.
I agree silvacrest. The PS audience is more accustomed to variety. Hopefully AW2 is multiplatform and is a tad more than point and shoot. Run in woods. Repeat.
AW2 should be made but what's sad is so many people missed a great game. these are my pros and cons: this game took what 4-6 years to make game-play is simple point flash light shoot and find generators story was awesome graphics are great nice dlc where was MS advertisement and where was word of mouth SALES come on Xbox community we all just don't want FPS after FPS we need to support these kind of games heavy rain for example did one million quick SHOW SUPPORT FOR GAMES OTHER THAN JUST FPS nothing wrong with playing FPS but we do want variety not just one kind of games
I think it would have sold better if it was on 360, PS3 and PC. Now if Alan Wake 2 comes out, it better choose its timing well. A choose not to come out when a Call Of Duty, Gears, Halo or any other big game.
they should of at least sold it on PC. the game would have done better.
...since it applies here. :o Without fail, in every article, posters prove that they: 1.) didn't bother to read the article, yet tried (in vain) to comment on it. or 2.) fail so miserably at reading comprehension, that their comment(s) expose them for the idiots they truly are. He's only talking about how early in the process they talked about and showed some of AW ; they are running a MUCH tighter operation from now on, and any news/info about AW2 won't happen until much closer to completion. In other words, they're taking the Bethesda/Skyrim approach. @ Smkt... Dude...it's N4G. But hey, if thinking that makes you feel better, keep those blinders on. Ignorance is bliss, after all. And, BTW, if what you propose is indeed the case...then all of those comments are SPAM/off topic/trolling... so my point still stands. They've said nothing that hasn't been said a 1000 times before, and certainly nothing that pertains to the point of this story and it's headline. :o
ever occur to you that maybe people are not commenting on the article but just generally discussing the game?
That last answer was a huge hint that they're working on an other big project. I can't wait to hear about it.
people act like all 360 owners onlywant fps. not me. my favorite games this gen are probably TES and AC series. hopefully alot of 360 owners pick up dark souls when it comes out. more sales will mean maybe MS will start making some good games for us.
How many years in development and they still fail miserably at the final boss? Was very disappointed in the end of this title.
