Game Informer Alan Wake Review

Redefining Video Game Storytelling.

“Stephen King once wrote that nightmares exist outside of logic, and there’s little fun to be had in explanations – they are antithetical to the poetry of fear. In a horror story, the victim keeps asking ‘Why?’, but there can be no explanation, and there shouldn’t be one. The unanswered mystery is what stays with us the longest, and it’s what we’ll remember in the end.” These are the first lines of dialogue spoken in Alan Wake. Through this message, Remedy reveals its hand of cards to the player, outlining exactly what to expect from this horror experience.

Great score for a great game I never played xD
Talking about The hype effect.

Arnon4657d ago

Freaking hurry up and release it. It's gonna be such a good game.

StarScream4Ever4657d ago

Not too bad at all. Sucks for me that they axed the PC version. :(

sak5004657d ago (Edited 4657d ago )

why? for the price of less than half a decent vga card that you would have required to play it on your pc you can buy a 360 to play this game or for that matter many great games.

mrv3214657d ago

And let's say for a moment, I know it'll be hard for you to imagine, but hypothetically if he already had a PC to play games then it not coming to 360 would cost quite a bit.

Also, some people like the improved graphics quality and resolution of PC titles.

Lets say you're a PC gamer, for say.. since 2007.. and play games that run just fine in higher native resolutions, fx, etc...

You need to spend more money to run one that doesn't boast the specifications of other titles like Crysis/Metro2099 .. etc?

Thats flawed logic. Compare the 360's specs to your average game pc please. You're saying the 360, at $199 is a super computer, to where you'd need to upgrade your PC to run it.

Shame theres no PC version, especially when they ran all the original demo's on the PC.

StarScream4Ever4657d ago

I highly doubt AW even needed a super PC anyways. Its not Crysis. Problem is that I'd rather see my PC investment worth paying off for the next 5 yrs than having to get my 360 fixed/a new once awhile.

Maybe I'm one of those with bad luck on 360 iono. But I just had enough of going through the headaches and all.

Greywulf4657d ago (Edited 4657d ago )

I can understand that star scream. I had bad luck with my bullet proof PS3. YLOD on my 60gb.

BUT, your PC isn't going to see any action. Multiplatform developers aren't wasting resources to make super versions of PC games anymore for the small audience.

The worst thing about the consoles success is that it has really shifted the concept behind a AAA pc game. Before Dev's were out trying to 1 up eachother with the next big PC franchise. Consoles barely run 720p, and DX9. So why bother with your super PC version? Even crytek is making console titles now. The day for super PC titles is gone, it will be missed. But a wider audience is enjoying the titles rather than a handful of alienware elitist.

How many Crysis' are there compared to GTA halo..gears uncharteds etc.

@ Greywulf

I've a fairly decent PC 2.4ghz o/c 3.2Ghz 2 gb dual channel, Asus 5870 and just got a new monitor Asus MS236H. Even the jump from 19" 1440x900 to 1920x1080 on the screen doesn't make me wanna play any games on it. I still prefer laying on the sofa and playing on the 50" plasma @ 1080p rez. I connected the pc to the TV but doesn't feel right as i'm so used to the controller. SO if anybody is crying so much about a game missing a pc release can save up and buy a 199$ console to play a game on it.

Very few console games actually run at 1080p. Im not saying I care, because my tv is only a 37" 720p anyway. But some people do like the better look of pc titles. Also, if you had your comp hooked up to your TV you could buy a controller (ps3 or 360) and use it with PC games on your TV from your comfy couch. Thats what a good friend of mine does. Personally I prefer the Keyboard / Mouse, but to each their own =)

Hallmark Moment4657d ago

Kind of like Rush Limbaugh passing up dinner with Obama.

BeaArthur4657d ago

It's not so much pass as you don't have the means to play it.

Hank Hill4657d ago

Are you guys seriously this butt hurt because he said he's passing on the game? What's wrong with gamers these days? No one can give their opinion without the fanboys getting all hurt inside.

Homicide4657d ago

He doesn't have a 360. He's just trolling the game and Xbox, as usual.

SaberEdge4657d ago

The only reason you say that is because you are a fanboy just like him and you like to troll 360 articles. People like me who just like to play good games, regardless of what console they are on, don't enjoy shifting through all the crap that guys like you write.

Halo3 MLG Pro4657d ago

UGH! One of the many open zone veterans that have been given a second chance. To bad he didn't use that second chance wisely. Already at one bubble.

Solidus187-SCMilk4657d ago

Too bad you dont have a choice anyways. Soo many ps3 trolls in AW articles.

I guess they need something to do while their waiting for mod nation racers to load.
