Rely on Horror: a recent statement made by Remedy makes Alan Wake for PC seem like more than just a possibility.
Please Remedy come back on PC.
Another 360 exclusive gone multiplatform. Unless PC conveniently doesn't count as a different platform this time. Anyway, it's a downloadable title so it might not be a huge loss I guess.
well it was originally a PC game so..
"Unless PC conveniently doesn't count as a different platform this time."
This time? The term "console exclusive" is a recognizable word that's considered as a true term. The situation works for DC Universe Online just like it would in Alan Wake's case (if this turns out to be true).
If you're trying to make that slight because of the number of 360/PC games, shouldn't we also be asking that when the term "console graphics king" comes up? But that logic would be too inconvenient for most of n4g (not to say you're in that group).
They're collecting they're losses, that's savvy, so long as it's a good port. Hell, I'll play it on PC if it exceeds console standard graphics like most PC games.
"Another 360 exclusive gone multiplatform."
Yeah to Windows 7 and Windows 8
What are you doing here Sony troll?
Does it even matter? For the whole console wars debate your still not going to play it on ps3. Your system could have 3x the exclusive and the competition would still have dozens of non exclusives that you can't play.
"I see PC in your name. Now if Alan Wake had come to the PC too, I bet you wouldnt say that" Yes I would. IMO this game looks weak!
That's the point.
That's my point.
September 2012 when Window 8 launches and allows ALL 360 games to be played on the PC.
as far as a dedicated PC version.....who knows!
No...that's just some dumb rumor. PC's aren't going to be able to emulate the 360 for at least a few more years. Windows 8 is going to try to incorporate some XBL shit that isn't going to do anything ...just like GFWL.
I want to play Alan wake in a true resolution, with good textures and 60 fps; not the 360 version.
kcuthbertson, It is probably a good thing that they will not have to emulate the xbox 360 on PC's then, as .NET makes it so that the code can run more or less natively on PC's.
@kcuthbertson Ah, a lot of pcs are more than capable of playing any 360 game. The tech in the 360 is 6 years old now, do you know anything a out pcs?
If you have Windows 7 you will see a thing called Windows Experience.
It's a test that when ran gives your PC a number of how well your components are.
It test the Ram, GPU, CPU, HDD, Optical drive, and multitasking functions.
it rates your PC from 1.0 to 7.0! All this data has been sent back to Microsoft and they have a VERY VERY VERY good idea of how many PC's can run 360 games.
Once the Next Box hits why wouldn't Microsoft want to rake in all that free money from PC gamers wanting to play some 360 games on their PC's?
This feature will be the biggest selling point to Windows 8. Also it would allow MS to make a bigger impact on the PC market and compete with STEAM as Devs would start going through XBL PC more often.
This would really give Steam a run for it's money and put a serious dent in Piracy cause the game would run through the OS and have an always Internet on DRM plus tie in your Mobo/CPu details to your XBLPC account thus making Piracy very very difficult.
Jesus H Christ i should go apply to Microsoft right now!
If it does come to PC. Day 1.
Hopefully it comes. I want this game so bad
It'll do well to the sales, thats for sure. Lots of PC gamers after this. Of course it'll be a GFWL title.... boo. But perhaps they could release it alongside Steam too? They did it for Fable III :P
Lots of GFWL games are on Steam. Microsoft and Valve's relationship isn't like EA and Valve's relationship.
Well we know that. But all the while I feel Valve is starting to lose Microsoft a bit. How many times have they said: Oh we wanted to do this which PS3 and PC allowed us to, but Microsoft wont?
gfwl=the only thing I hate in pc gaming
What about Ubisoft's DRM?
Personally, I don't actually hate GFWL. It's pretty decent. Of course, I'm a late comer so I didn't experienced the woes of early adopters that I've been hearing of. I have a number of GFWL and Origin games in my PC. A LOT of Steam games. ...no Ubisoft. The only thing that does bother me about GFWL is that it reminded me of Microsoft's lack of support in PC gaming. Alan Wake started it all. I've spent years building my PC in anticipation of Alan Wake only to be told that my PC is no match to the living room couch. That left a bad taste.
I heard they dont do Games for Windows Live anymore and that it's just Games for Windows. I could be completely wrong though.
Yea MS was planning to keep their games off of steam, but they realized while releasing Fable 3 that they need it on as many pc platforms as possible to get more sales.
if that happens, then there'll be even less reasons to get a 360 than it already is.. lol
Oh, have computer screens finally grown large enough that they can handle the intense experience that is Alan Wake? Let me inform the elders I'm sure there'll be celebrations that an okay survival horror game is coming our way, we'll have to slaughter a pig in thanks.
lol, i dont think some ppl saw what you did there
I'm glad somebody remembers the God damn retarded excuse they gave for why we didn't have it day 1 to begin with.
What I really want is an announcement for PC Red Dead Redemption, come on R* I don't even care if its not well optimised, do eeet :)
i'm not trying to be negative - and maybe i misunderstood; but, a month or so ago there was a story on here that said rockstar has already decided against a pc version of RDR.
edit: here's the original link -
That sucks, looks like my 2nd play through will be on 360 again. Thanks for the link, I had no idea they had said that. Nothing wrong with the console version to be honest, I just really like what the modding community has done with GTA IV on PC, would have been nice to see RDR get the same treatment.
its too bad, II hate playing games like red dead redemption on consoles. I wont get into reasons here. But i guess we cant have every great game on pc.
I want the game they showed years back, not what ended up on 360.
Yeah the original concept seemed to be an awesome game. Maybe too ambitious for their first "NextGen" project (e.g.: getting your head around the restrictions of a console).
Agree. What could of been vs the final product aren't even in the same planet. I couldn't even bring myself to finish it. Already one game into it and it needs a reboot. LOL
do you mean that amazing game I played on my 360 could have been better
Maybe yes, maybe no. Maybe the initial concept hasn't worked as cool as it sounded. Maybe they couldn't do it on consoles that time. We'll never know. Just be glad you've liked the game, hopefully you've bought it to support the developers...
MS published , see it coming to PC but thur the new xbox ,pc connection .
Please let it come. Finally gonna play this over 680p :P More like 1920x1080p for my pc :)
Better not just be releasing the new downloadable game instead of the full game + DLC. Because that would be a kick in the nuts.
Should have been on PC in the first place i'll pass tbh.
. All that can be said is - Welcome back to PC, Remedy. Maybe you won't forget the audience that made you relevant next time, huh?
Tbh what the game was promising in 2006 http://www.youtube.com/watc... what finally came out on console went backways imo. I played and didnt complete Alan Wake on the xbox so i did give it chance. Just didn't live up to the hype and what i was expecting of the game. Not saying others didn't enjoy it good for them tbh. But for me it was a miss.
Remedy always said they wanted the game on PC, it was MS that didn't and as they were publishing it an putting up the money they had the final say.
