I’m really looking forward to playing this.

Been waiting so long for this one. There's been more day ones, for me, in just the last month than most recent years. This is another on the list.

I really loved the first one, the whole vibe of the game just sucks you in. By the looks of it, this is going to be a treat.

I want to play Alan Wake but I’m not buying another digital only game this year. I still haven’t bought Baldurs Gate 3 but if do buy a digital only game that will be the one but I’m still holding out as I have tons of games to play and don’t like buying digital only. I hate this practice and don’t want to support it. I understand small indie games sometimes being digital only but those are rare too. But these bigger games can easily get someone to print them 100k or more copies and they will all sell.

yh im holding off on Alan wake too.

the digital only is stupid as hell. there is no way that the physical media costs them so much.

I think I read it's like $8 or something Sony charges for the disc and publish in fee which is Inline with ms and switch costs more with the 16gb cart which replaces the 8gb model being a little more than the PS4 disc but higher 32gb capacity is right up there as such also the reason why publishers release huge patched on day 1 for switch

Can't freaking wait! I only have one tiny nitpick from everything I've seen so far. The ground clutter. There is a ton of pop-in going on when moving around with small rocks and foliage. I hope they can touch that up a bit before release. The game itself looks like everything I could have hoped for! I hope there are a ton of different cards to collect, for Queen's Blood.

So glad they're bringing a card game to a FF game again

Given it's an SSD game now I really hope that's cleaned up closer to release.

I think they've said the demo we're seeing is several months old. Hopefully it already is fixed but most open world games seem to have a problem with vegetation pop in or density

Man, this is one of those games where when I saw the gameplay, I could tell immediately they’re raising the bar. I can’t tell you how hyped I am for this! It’s not crazy far out, but the wait is still getting to me.

There’s also Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth and Persona 3 Remake to juggle before then. Dang, 2024 is a good time to be a JRPG fan.

andy856h ago

And LAD Gaiden and I still haven't finished Sea of Stars 🤣

gold_drake6h ago

oooo boy i cant wait, im already dodging news and gameplay like a pro haha

Trilithon5h ago

this should be a good 75 hours of entertainment

Syphos5h ago

I think that's a bit below the actual number, they said 100 hours (which is probably discounting how much side-stuff and mini-games you can get lost in) I'd expect with a normal-ish playthrough enjoying some of the side-content you'll easily top 100 hours, might be more like 140-150 hours tbh ^^.

I wonder how many hours completing everything fully will take, can't wait.

looking forward to tomorrow where its 149 days away from launch

Alan Wake 2 Won’t Have a Performance Mode on Xbox Series S

The survival horror title's 60 FPS mode will only be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, Remedy Entertainment has confirmed.

Guess the majority of Xbox players will be stuck with 30fps then.

darthv7212h ago

Having a perf mode is certainly a nice option, but I believe the devs said its supposed to be a 30fps game. And given that there are plenty of games on S without a perf mode... it doesnt seem to phase anyone who plays them.

TQQ11h ago

I bet the resolution and settings are higher on performance PS5 than 30 FPS Series S.

You're really reaching trying to pass this off as a good thing.

Jin_Sakai10h ago

The majority of Xbox gamers playing the inferior version at half the frame rate isn’t a good thing. Stop the damage control.

EvertonFC2h ago

That's because Xbox gamers are approx 90% casuals.

1Victor12h ago

It would be foolish to expect anything less 🤦🏿

thesoftware7309h ago(Edited 9h ago)


Lol you sound so geeky.

thesoftware7309h ago(Edited 9h ago)

I noticed you are championing this narrative

"Majority of Xbox gamers own a SS."

You know most people who give a shit about your geek wars are on these types of messages boards right? And most likely have a S/X if they own an Xbox right?. Like me😁, I own a SX and and SS.

The majority of console players don't give two flying shits about the FPS and the dumb shit we debate about. So while you seem to be teasing, you are teasing the wrong people...go outside in RL, stand in front of a GameStop, wait for someone to buy an SS, then when they walk out.....say

"Na na na na, you can only play your game at 30fps", oh and don't forget to stick your tongue out at them.

You sound like a salty cry baby,
