Preview - Alan Wake

Shown off behind closed doors at last week's X06 by Remedy's lead writer Sam Lake, the 20 minute presentation gave us a glimpse at what could easily turn out to be the game of 2007. Following on from the impressive taster we were given at E3 2005, the Remedy chaps once again reminded us that Alan Wake is a psychological action thriller set in a sleepy Pacific North-western town. Heavily inspired by Stephen King and Twin Peaks, the plan is to craft a movie-like atmosphere, but structure the game like a television series, complete with episodic progress and cliffhangers...

i'd heard somewhere that the video shown for this game was actually running on DirectX10-enabled PC's? anywho, like i said before, i'll definately be keeping this one on my 360 radar. hopefully they'll release a demo or trailer (if they already haven't released a trailer) on marketplace soon.

Zypher, not only was this running on a PC with DX10, it was also being powered by an Intel QUAD proc (the next step beyond Dual Core). As such the sheet was screaming. It did look amazing, but the machine it was running on was beastly (with tech that will not be available to consumers until well into 2007).

With that said I am sure the 360 version will be good, just not as good as the demo given at the Intel demo.

I really don't know about these screens or what they were shown on, especially the ones on the far right. I have seen older 360 screens and the game looks just as good. So I'm confused , I realy believe the game will look as good as I have seen in all these screens.

This is a must buy for my 360! But im willing to bet that in the next 2 years games on 360 will surpass this game without a problem! It looks amazing but im just saying that over time 360 will blow us away more and more! Don't fool yourself and honestly believe that the 360 has know more potential when in fact it has tons of potential just waiting to be unlocked!

is used, a pandoras box will be truly opened as regards to 360 next-gen gaming!!!

this is just the begining.

I hope this is true and if so the 360 is a monster just waiting to be unleashed! This game is more than impressive though and should look Identical on 360 if not better if those DX10 features are added im sure!


I LOVE 360

damn, it just keeps getting better. this game is groundbreaking in its storytelling.
