Managing director of Remedy Entertainment, Matias Myllyrinne has stated that the up and coming Xbox 360 exclusive "pushes action gameplay and storytelling a few notches further"
Release it already
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
The game is shaping up nicely =]
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.
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
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
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!
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.
Max Payne 2 ring a bell? You know, the game this same team turned to utter trash.
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.
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.
Action Bastard is a troll, don't even bother responding to him. EDIT: Obama is just a troll as well.
so is van-essa
Wow, almost all the PS3 fanboys are here. None of you guys are interested in this game or it's platform so why bother?
Van-essa is a troll...with obvious bad taste.
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!!
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. but...it'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).
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.
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. @van-essa 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.
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.
" Only possible on Ps3 " I have been hearing that since the Ps3 launched
Its true about only possible on PS3. It is a Sony owned IP.
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.
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.
"Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi... driving games released since Gran Turismo 4..., saying that the 'low level of quality really shines through". http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... "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.
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?
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.
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.
yea like being attacked by a tractor. lol this game has already flopped. too bad
Thats not a tractor, tractors pull stuff, they dont weed. Hence the word tractor, which is a deviation from traction.... Tractor beam? Comprendo no vouz?
"tractors pull stuff" ha ha get a load of this moron he had to come and reply just to tell me that. what a loser
Faynob the only loser I see here is you, the game has not flopped, you fail, please go sit in the corner like a good little retard.
Wow, bots. Go to fvcking school: http://www.google.com/searc... http://www.google.com/searc... @Dumbass below me He said deviation from traction which is not the same as TRACT. Get the facts straight dumb fvck before you criticize me. Now go play power rangers.
Mooey you just proved FoxGod's point Seriously are you THAT Stupid?
Arguing about farming and farm equipment now? lol At least Foxgod is in the right Zone for a friggin change.
It says it right there, traction, the act of pulling.....
now tract your head out your ass and see this game is flippity flop.
And here's my handy dandy "Flashlight" (oh wait, it has been done. Luigi's Mansion, Alone in the dark and Silent Hill SM...) Pew Pew Pew. What a flop game.
So killzone fails because it uses guns? Guns in games have been done before. UC2 fails too then, every shooter that came out after wolfenstein, fails according to your logic. Why are you even gaming?
I've been keeping up with the latest updates this game since 2008, and know this game isn't going to be a flop like the people claims in the Open Zone. I have no doubt in my mind that this game is going to one of the best and most memorable games of this generation. Rememdy actually sold their award-winning franchise Max Paine just to concentrate on Alan Wake. They have claim that Alan Wake is their best masterpiece so far. Like I said in my previous comments, just wait until reviews come in and the PS3 fanboys screaming "M$ PAYED everyone to GIVE GOOD REVIEWS" only to later say "WE DESERVE THIS GAME ON PS TRIPLE AND ALAN WAKE 2 HAS TO COME ON PS3 OR REMEDY IS A FANBOY!!! M$ IS EVIL FOR HOGGING THIS GAME!" I can see it coming from a mile away.
You guys haven't seen jackshit with this game, yet defend it to high heaven. Everything thats been shown is underwhelming, the graphics suck compared to other 5 year titles like Gran Turismo 5. The animation is terrible compared to UC2. Sure the game might be fun, but its not doing anything no one has seen before in gaming. So why pretend it is? Why not just say its a good game, and move on. It doesn't raise any visual bars, or any bars at all as far as the trailer. UC2/Kz2 it was all apparent that they were changing the game and at least going AFTER raising a bar. What has alan wake shown? Seriously... a tractor, flashlight, and identical gameplay to alone in the dark.. And oh yeah, the flopbox120 couldn't pull off the open world, so they removed it."Buh buh design choice!" Sure, keep thinking that, for SOME reason it was removed and it just happens to highlight the fact that nothing Alan wake was hyped about when it first showed up, exists in todays package. Bots need to stop thinking their flops are innovative, or changing the world of gaming. They are just rushed games you guys buy for 60 bucks that use the unreal engine 99% of the time.
It is a flop....because you played it and know......
Oh oh, look at all the insecure sony haters. Looks like you can add Alan Wake to the ever growing list of games the sony side are scared of.
You're a tool, like a broke spanner..useless. You're posts are damn embarrasing what are you 3 years old pew,pew,pew..pew. Viva piñata give you nightmares kid? Hardcore lol. Van-essa your a hag troll. Foxgod...ahh forget it you're not worth the steam off my pi$$. On topic: I hope for the 360's sake that alan wake is up for the minute scrutiny that every ps3 exclusive gets because I'm sick of hyped games this gen that have not delivered.
I'm a Sony supporter. I've never hid my preference for the PS3 over the other consoles, but I can't wait to dust off my 360 for Alan Wake. I've been eagerly anticipating this title for years, and I've always been a huge fan of Remedy. After all, it's about the games, isn't it? Seriously, do you check under you bed at night for phantom PS3 fans? I'm looking up and down this post and I don't see any sony fans "hating" on Alan Wake. I see a lot of people bashing Sony for some unexplained reason, but I don't see those mysterious posts you're referring to with Sony fans acting scared of Alan Wake. Give it a rest already. No one wants to hear more console wars nonsense. If you insist on perpetuating these ridiculous flame wars, do it in the open zone and let real gamers discuss games. That's why we're here.
Except, I'm a hardcore playstation man. How the hell did you end up on the other side with those childish games??? I would have thought you had serious gaming skills but you believe bunjies halo is the best. Did you get into a serious head accident? Alan wake is c'mon... A rental. I'm about to revoke your gamers licence & file you under [CASUAL].
Yeah it doesn't get any more hardcore than LilBigPlanet or R&C. :/
As a grownup, how did you end up being a console warrior? If you really like games, then you should be able to enjoy them on any platform. A good game, is a good game whether it's on platform A or B.
I used to have a ps2 and a dreamcast, and not an xbox. How did i end up on the other side? Simple Ps2 > Xbox Xbox 360 > ps3 I base that purely on the game library's of those consoles.
I disagree Fox, software preference is subjective, so you can't really base superiority of a console on that. Not that it matters anyway.
This coming from someone who plays the most casual FPS I've ever seen.
Is there any game on the PS3 that's actually hardcore? Any of their games being used in official tournaments? Any of their games being talked about around the world for it's "blow my mind" hardcore gameplay? No, there isn't. As much as you guys may like the PS3 exclusives, there hasn't been a single one that's actually considered "hardcore" outside of this website. Killzone 2 is about as hardcore as a PS3 game gets, considering it's one of the only online shooters on the console. The way I see it, a PS3 exclusive is the type of game you beat, and then put on your shelf, because well... there really isn't anything left to do with it, and unfortunately, that's happened for 90% of my PS3 exclusive titles. These "hardcore" games on the PS3 are a prime example of that, and still people think that something like Killzone 2 is "hardcore" because of what, exactly? It's controls? Lol.. I don't even think people know what the word "Hardcore" means. Games like Ninja Gaiden are hardcore. Games like Demon's Souls are hardcore. Games like Counter-Strike are hardcore, and yes, believe it or not, Halo is a hardcore franchise. It's the Counter-Strike of consoles, and is still being used regularly by people around the world and tournaments, 3 years after it's release.
You start by saying that the PS3 doesnt have hardcore games and then you mention Ninja Gaiden and Demons Souls!! Confused much? Anyway Demons Souls is definitely the most hardcore game of this generation and probably i have to go all the way back to the 16 bit era to find a game as hardcore as Demons Souls. Then you go saying that only multiplayer games are hardcore because of replayability?? Stupid much? Most hardcore games are from the 8 and 16 bit era and guess what none of them had multiplayer! You talk like you are an "expert" of hardcore games but you are nothing but a tool and an idiotic fanboy. PS3 games are just as hardcore as 360 games. BTW If halo is a hardcore game then so is Resistance, MW2, Batllefield, Haze... Just because it is still being played doesnt make it hardcore. In fact the only reason why its being played its because is FUN.
Instead of calling people names, you should insight them with what you think is "hardcore". Demon's Souls was mentioned because I stated there are games on the PS3 that are, to an extent, able to be referenced "hardcore". It has nothing to do with replay value. How can a game be a hardcore experience, if it's only experienced for a maximum of 10 hours, and then put away for, possibly, forever? The term "hardcore" is thrown around so loosely these days, that any game someone likes will be called such a word, and relatively, have no meaning, except to help it garner attention. Also, yes. The Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises are most certainly hardcore. They have tournaments for both of those games regularly for the PC. To me, hardcore represents a game that requires lots of prowess, and has garnered attention for this very act. I'd also consider a hardcore experience a game that has been received so well, that it's become an official sport. But saying a game like "inFAMOUS" is hardcore because it's "super awesome and you can use lightning!" is just silly. I don't think you realize that people actually train in gaming with these "hardcore" games, including Call of Duty, Madden, Battlefield and yes, Halo. Either I'm just really good at PS3 exclusives, or they're all very short, mostly single-player experiences.
Another dissapointment that joins the rental category. What happened to serious subject matter? This is a C movie with bad actors & low production. Graphics suck. Animation is stiff. And the main charachter is scared of monsters. Fckn pu$$y! Wake up Alan ! You lost some pages of your diary ! LMAO!!! Heavy Rain Raped this mini DVD snoozer with a big black flash light!
Too bad you guys didn't like Max Payne 1 or/and 2, but I freaking loved them. First one really was mind blowing. Remedy "invented" bullet-time, and that with insane graphics, physics, and lot of stuff flying in the air from bullets, was just amazing. And the story stelling was very good and stylish. High anticipations for AW..
I'm a big PC gamer not much love for consoles. I do however own an Xbox and this is one of the reasons why I own it. I think most true gamers see that this will be a great game. Just look at the Sony camp how nervous they are over this game and the worst thing they can say about it is "flashlight"
I see alot of guys/kids hating about the game because its just an Xbox 360 game. Its like they got some stock in SONY and they wanna defend it. Thats kinda stupid If you are a gamer and you enjoy (Games. Then You should own PS3, Xbox 360 & Wii But just trashing a game just because its an exclusive then perhaps you should grow up Alan wake based on the reviews, videos, gameplay & screenshots that been shown until now. Looks promising to me. I already pre-orderd the limited edition as well I mean yes, there might be a chance for the game to be a flop, but also there is a chance to be one the best games in this year. If you don't own a ps3, Xbox 360 Or Wii. That don't mean to hate on its games unless the games really sucks.
Another 360 article bumrushed by the psychotic, brainwashed PS3 trolls on this site. You act like you are trying to drown peoples interest in certain games by trolling every article to bits. Either that or you're jealous it's not coming to the PS3. I think Alan Wake will be something very special. From what I've seen it looks extremely polished. Probably the best lighting seen this gen, extremely cool settings and enemies, a story that seems very cool and a complete package that screams quality. Can't wait to play this game, and I won't have to much longer either.
Ignore the PS3 Fanboy community...Poor guys have nothing to play...I know, I have one...Complete waste of money so far...I hope KZ3 isn't a pile of horse do-do like KZ2 and UC2...Can't even sell it now with the slim costing half what I paid...Moving on...PS3 at the bottom where it belongs...PS3 fanboys ignorant bunch...sad... On TOPIC...AW looks awesome...I hope it plays the same way...Everything I've seen from the game looks, at this point, amazing...Alot of rumors about the story arc outthere...I just want to play this already...MAY seems far away...SC Conviction in a couple of wks, can't wait for that game...Want to rent Metro...way behind on gaming... If Sony loses this holiday season, it's over for them this gen...Right now with the price cut RUMORED to be coming to 360 plus natal with it's voice reconition/ wireless/controllerless gaming set up...E3 a major battle ground this yr....
the dark harvester fight didn't look like quality to me. i am not going to sleep on wake and i will pay my 60 bucks for it, but sony fans are not sweating if you think they are.....go outside and get a fresh breath of air...
I agree, using a flashlight so you didn't have to illuminate everything and cause stress on the XBOX which couldn't handle it was a good move. It was even more dumbass to cancel PC development and the most dumbass move to not give the PS3 a shot. This game coulda had a lot more potential if it was on PS3.
man you are typing such nonsense. mass effect cannot compete with ff13 in terms of graphics, maybe you play on an SD tv with the 360.
Hey where is Real Killer talking aboiut DEPTH OF FIELD? LOL
