Alan Wake 2: The Final Preview - IGN

IGN : In our final hands-on preview of Alan Wake 2 ahead of its October 27 release date, we played two missions midway through the game: one as FBI agent Saga Anderson, and one as tortured writer Alan Wake set in the Dark Place. Find out why we were incredibly impressed by Remedy's latest (and greatest?) game.

Too bad this isn't releasing on disc, if there was a physical copy I would support & buy. I'm not at all paying $60 or $70 for a digital only game.

Its a vision of the future my friend, look at xbox, 10 years from now there won't be physical media. I love physical media, shopping around, buy it, own it, see it on a shelf, pop the case open, lending & borrowing from a friend, trading in. It's a lifestyle, I still own physical books for the same reason, 4k blu-rays, lovely.

Good for XB but if Sony PS & Nintendo becomes all digital then I'll find a new hobby. I'm not buying AAA games digital only at retail price. When it comes to AAA physical copy of games that I want to play I don't wait months for a sale.

Sony already has an all-digital PS5. Xbox only had series S, and it's just releasing a Digital Series X to follow suit. I don't think there's any difference in what Xbox is doing vs Sony or Nintendo. If it's coming it's coming for the entire industry.

I'm still bewildered people actually defend that shit. Why would the OPTION of both physical and digital be worse than just digital? It's just restrictive for no reason. With digital we're always at the mercy of the publisher. Look at COD games xbox/PS stores, they just replace base editions with new editions and bundles so they can charge full price.


COD Ghosts is still $60 on the Playstation store lmao. Imagine if it was digital only (not that anyone wants to buy that game).

My most anticipated game of the year! Remedy games are rock solid

I hear good things about the game and i will definitely get it at some point but i don't like that they have said that the game was built to be 30fps.

They have said there will be a performance mode but won't confirm it will be 60fps locked and that they are still working on it...

Balderstone sounds like some nerds autocorrect got in there

You know you had a very rigorously competitive year with plenty of variety in opinion when neither Wonder (#7 on this list) nor Tears of the Kingdom (#4) are in the top 3.

Personally, I really enjoyed SMB Wonder and it's my personal GOTY, but my point is that this year was insane for games.

I would have played BG3 and Alan Wake 2 day 1 if they didn’t go digital only at launch. I have BG3 ordered so I’ll play it when it releases physically for PS5 but Alan Wake 2 I may end up waiting for a long time since they haven’t announced a physical copy yet that I know of.

monkey60220h ago

I completely mirror those sentiments. I havent played either yet and I cant wait to either but holding on for physical or a decent sale price to go digital

Alan Wake doesn’t have the greatest combat but the tlc put into it is evident. There is definitely nothing like it.

I wouldn’t be opposed to it taking most GOTY awards.

I have yet to play Baldurs Gate 3 or Alan wake but there is no denying 2023 has been a great year for gaming. With that said, my personal favorite game this year is Dave the Diver. Pure Joy.

Alan Wake 2 Review - Duuro Plays

Duuro says: "Alan Wake 2 is undoubtably one of the finest narrative-driven experiences available on any platform currently. Remedy Entertainment has truly outdone themselves in crafting not just a great sequel, but a masterwork of storytelling, atmosphere and gameplay that will surely stand the test of time."
