I can wait for the release date, it's not too long, but I'm getting more and more excited about it all the time XD

Hope everything pulls off :D

SpaceSquirrel3221d ago

The game is shaping up nicely =]

Digitaldude3221d ago

Talk about serious hype from the devs.

Just read the whole thread. Another thread completely ruined by PS3 fanboys.

Nobody mentioned the PS3, nor PS3 games or whatever.

Sad bunch of people.

ndibu3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

You should have your own gaming site because long as your comment is, I enjoyed reading it entirely because it makes so much sense.
Everytime i come across a comment that seems like it had thought behind it, I know its gonna have the JOY insignia. You make sense bro, alot of sense

NeutralGamer3220d ago

JokesOnYou... Kudos/Bubbles to you!
You just defined the fanboy business...

I cant believe you have only 1 bubble, when you make sense like that :D

Lord Vader3220d ago

Serious question 4u guys:

Is Alan Wake going to be a heavy story driven survival horror game or horror story & more action oriented ?

PM if u know what the gameplay is like, Im not into survival horror, but this game looks very interesting... thx.

Alan Wake is serious business no doubt!

Two-Face3221d ago

Alan Wake will be a masterpiece no doubt. And one of the top games of this generation.

Does Max Payne ring a bell? These developers are pure awesome. Max Payne is one of my favorite games of all time.

ActionBastard3221d ago

Max Payne 2 ring a bell? You know, the game this same team turned to utter trash.

Two-Face3221d ago

That is bull.

Max Payne 2 is a great follow up. Yeah, the original is better, but Max Payne 2 is still a wonderful game.

Obama3221d ago

Max Payne 2 is not a masterpiece, and it was never praised to be. I personally think it's above average, but not exactly mind blowing. And let's wait for actual reviews before calling AW a masterpiece, coz the last gameplay video where Alan killed a tractor with a flare gun didn't impress.

van-essa3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Action Bastard is a troll, don't even bother responding to him.

Obama is just a troll as well.

van-essa3221d ago

Wow, almost all the PS3 fanboys are here. None of you guys are interested in this game or it's platform so why bother?

30sec3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Van-essa is a troll...with obvious bad taste.

ThePain3221d ago

Action Bastard is one of the dumbest persons ever. Saying Max Payne 2 is utter trash.

Max Payne 2 owns every game that came out this generation. EASILY!!

Therealspy17763221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

the game that everyone on n4g is praising as best game ever is some garbage about a guy going after treasure in a plot stolen straight from every live action disney movie ever made (eg. national treasure), and the best the dialogue ever is is "i have a bad feeling about this" or "that can't be good" or "that's gotta hurt". so if they manage to have a likable character, some non-moronic dialogue, and a story that requires more thought than 'lets get some treasure', then we'll have a good game on our hands.'s not a ps3 exclusive, so i'm sure everyone here will act like it's okay at best. hell, look at all the disagrees already plaguing this article simply because ppl are looking forward to a 360 exclusive. sad sad sad sad sad

@guy below: Twilight wins lots of awards too. you gonna argue that's a good movie? what a silly argument. the consumer speaks...they speak by not playing this game that has 'earned' those awards.

more people are playing the starcraft 2 beta at any given time than that award winner. i love how all those sites that gave those awards were completely biased and bought off by microsoft right up until a ps3 exclusive won them. they had no credibility til 2009, now you reference them all the time. well, thanks for proving my point about hypocrisy.

oh, and i like how even though i didn't mention the game, you knew right away what game i was talking about. :)

You don't need to hate on another game/"exclusive" to prove your point. You're acting like the fanboys you hate and criticize.
Uncharted 2 is a great game and I hope Alan Wake will deliver as well. It just means more good games for us to play (you guys should be happy about it, not hating).

ThePain3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Stick all of those rewards up your ass. They proove nothing. GTA IV got plenty of awards aswell, and a score of 98 on metacritic. But I still consider the game average. What does that tell you? Awards does not proove anything.. It just like bringing up sales in a discussion.

Uncharted 2 has one of the most boring gunplay I have ever fricking played. I rather play Max Payne than that piece of crap.

If anybody thinks that the gunplay in Uncharted is fun or great, he is unhuman.

masterofpwnage3221d ago

just because you dont like it doesnt mean its garbage and the awards proves that uncharted is one of the best games this gen.

its like me going to a guy i dont like, who got honor roll and many scholarship and say no just because you have many awards doesnt mean your successful and smart, your still stupid.

just leave him alone. he is a fanboy and a hater combine.

but yeah alan wake looks dope. im not going to say is a masterpiece or a AAA game, we have to wait and see but it still looks good.

though i have to skip sinse both my ps3 and 360 and im getting a ps3 first, but when i do get a ps3 again i will buy it.

Add /s. Then you won't look as retarded.

Will not care until PC version is reinstated.

I'm obviously lying since I care enough to post this, I'm just one of the people who've been following this game longer than 90% of 360 owners, and Microsoft did a dirty deed when killing off what we were hoping for for so long.

Hate Microsoft, but I love Remedy because they make amazing products, but they obviously have incredibly bad judgment to put all of their faith into MS because now they completely cut off the fanbase that brought them to the top. Just another Call of Duty situation all over again. Really lame. They should've went with Take-Two and would've gotten the same time/resources and more people could play the game.

harrisk9543221d ago

I'm sure that Alan Wake will be a great game... Remedy is a fantastic developer... But, what bothers me is the lack of any sense of humbleness by companies that do exclusive Xbox games... You never heard any such comments coming from Naughty Dog about UC2 or Santa Monica about GOW3... they are HUMBLE... the same can't be said about most 360 developers... They do lots of chest beating.

NnT32913221d ago

" Only possible on Ps3 "
I have been hearing that since the Ps3 launched

Simon_Brezhnev3221d ago

Its true about only possible on PS3. It is a Sony owned IP.

Foxgod3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Why should they be humble, you dont sell your product with being humble.
Imagine an add from Mcdonalds that says: We are almost as good as Burger king.

That wouldnt work so well, its better to claim you are the best.

Besides, it can only be done on ps3, and it only does everything, arent exactly humble either.
Bit overblown for the 3 % different in power between the 360 and ps3.

If you play games on an High end PC, then you cant see difference between ps3 and xbox 360 games.

The difference between high end pc, and consoles, now thats a difference that can be argued.

k jules3221d ago

Remedy isn't overhyping or bashing others, so I don't know what you're going on about. Turn 10 is an example of what you are saying, but PD (i.e. Sony dec) isn't exactly humble either, saying it will outdo evert other race game and to expect perfection.

van-essa3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

"Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi... driving games released since Gran Turismo 4..., saying that the 'low level of quality really shines through".

"can only be done one PS3"

"gendre defining game", etc.

I'm not hating on any company, just trying to point out the hypocrisy, that's all.

ActionBastard3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Remedy is not a fantastic developer imo. Everything else you said is spot on.

LOL @ Fox. Remedy has made 4 games. 2 were trash, 1 was Max Payne and 1 (Alan Wake) has yet to be played by the gaming public. Second to Bungie!? Did you just start gaming with the original Xbox?

EDIT: Shame you have reading comprehension issues. Here, maybe you'll understand this:

Remedy has made 4 games.
2 were trash - Max Payne 2 and Death Rally
1 was Max Payne, which was great...superb even.
1 has yet to be played by the gaming public.

You are ONLY stoking it b/c it's a 360 exclusive. Is that clear?

Foxgod3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Remedy is the second bungie.
Extreme polish and great overall quality.
You wont find better developers.

@above, i started gaming on the msx and the atari 2600.
And everything Remedy produced was gold.
There where just a bunch of whiners who claimed that MP2 wasnt as good as MP1, which is not true.
You're probably one of those whiners.

Also you threw your credibility out of the window by claiming that AW is trash, which you cant know, cause you didnt play it yet.

Therealspy17763221d ago

that's the ps3 fanboy hypocritical mentality.

if you say anything negative about a ps3 exclusive, you're automatically at 360 fanboy in their eyes. if you don't love and overhype and overpraise a ps3 exclusive, you're bashing it harder than any game has ever been bashed. if you even think to mention the quality of a 360 exclusive, you are beating your chest about how great it is.

it's a complete hypocrisy and it's better left ignored because these people are children that will never grow up.
