TMC: It was previously reported that Remedy was working on an unannounced AAA project for the xbox 360. New information on their site reveals that Remedy will be using the Alan Wake engine once again along with some type of Kinect support.
Nice , this could be pretty sweet. I loved Alan Wake but Hope the game isn't AW2. I'd rather play the Sequel to AW2 with a Controller.
Depends on how they do it, I wouldn't mind having Alan Wake 2 with Kinect support. I doubt they would make Alan Wake 2 a full fledge Kinect title. I'm interested to see what this is, all I have is casual games for Kinect, which isn't a bad thing, but it would be nice to play some core games and see what developers can come up with that is interesting.
On of the best. Need to get the DLC.
First dragging Rare down now Remedy Please make it stop
There's still no Real information released about the game. Stop bashing what isnt out/shown yet.
And what's wrong with Rare? Kinect Sports is a great game, it's actually one of the best Kinect games right now. Very fun and addiction with almost zero lag, and on the hardest difficulty is pretty challenging. Table Tennis is the shit on there. @NYC_Gamer - What's your point? Half of those games were remade for XBL and now they are doing something different. If Kinect Sports sucked horribly, then yea I could see what you mean, but it doesn't. It's actually a great game and worked much better than I expected. EIDT2: TBH most developers had better games back in the day.
whats wrong with Rare?check out their Nintendo line up of games compared to what their doing now..that will answer it all Edit just saying Rare had way better games with Nintendo
It's cool to speculate the unproven awesomeness, but not the proven lameness? Alan Wake 2, with proper support (meaning Microsoft letting them take their time again) is probably going to be awesome. Adding Kinect as the main controller or supplement will probably be more frustrating than good. Either way they do it I do hope for a PC version. Remedy used to be good at that.
You guys are still Blaiming Rare's Direction of games this gen post Banjo-Kazooie Nuts And Bolts on Microsoft? You guys should ''WIKIPEDIA''/ Google Rare and read some of the information available online before talking for a change. Most of the Original Staff members from the 90's that made the original Donkey kong , Banjo games left the team a few years before joining Microsoft in the early 2000's. The problem is the new Blood there. Not microsoft. if the new kids arent capable of making a good game I doubt Microsoft is to blame.
@persistantthugh- Actually 360 has a stronger GPU. It's a fact. Alan wake and Gears 2 look just as good as any ps3 title. They are about the same.
Spartanv07 thats the biggest load of crap I have heard on N4g gears 2 and alan wake do not come close to likes of killzone 2-3 or uncharted. For one alan wake has resolution 540p. Now the gpu in 360 dose come out on top compared to ps3 but bottleneck by the xeon processor that is designed for servers.
I love how you didn't say anything wrong but you still managed to collect 8 disagrees. The Sony fanboys must be out today.
Actually 360 has a stronger GPU. It's a fact. Alan wake and Gears 2 look just as good as any ps3 title. They are about the same. lol lol lol... about the same.
I did play Kinect with my nephew, I had to rearrange some furniture for 2 player setup, from the Adventures game I still see the "Rare" touch in graphics and game design, the only problem I had was actually the controls, lag made this game unplayable, I had to make actions more than a full second earlier than I should naturally do.
I can tell that you haven't learned how to find reliable information, Kareshi_X. Wiki is not and will never be the place to prove facts. If you want, I can modify Rare's Wiki page to say that they made the original Banjo & Kazooie in a space pod orbiting the known planet of "OMGNOTAPLANET!" while rinsing their feet with freeze dried coconuts.
okay so youll let alan wake 2 have kinect and play the sequel to alan wake 2 with a controller i see
Well what if it were both? Im sure as Kinect games adapt, you can play the game in both Kinect and controller, like Harry Potter 7. Or is it just Kinect for that?
In harry potter you can either play it with the controller and kinect. If this is Alan Wake 2 I'm sure it'll work the same way.
@Igneel there we go then :)
I disagreed because just because a game uses Kinect doesn't mean that it will use Kinect for primary gameplay control.
They should've made Max Payne 3 instead of Rockstar. That would've been fucking awesome. Well, only if it got released on PC aswell.
Remedy should have just stuck with T2/Rockstar
you don't know what deal they made with microsoft. You don't know how much they got paid behind the scenes.
Reputation > Money
Yeah because at the end of the day reputation pays the bills - allot of game companies have went bankrupt this gen because they took a risk and published a game there selfs only to break even or take a loss. Why cant they have both reputation and money - see Bungie,
I loved Alan Wake, so really excited to know what what their next project will be. Even though Alan Wake was not a commercial success, I am happy to see that they are already hard at work on their next project.
Still on my list to play. It's Remedy, nuff said.
Better not be alan wake with kinect.
keeping my eye on this 1
I hope there is a non Kinect way of playing the game.
I still have to finish Alan Wake.... the parts I have played were fun, but I have too many games on my plate right now.
And we'll all only have to wait 5 years for it before a bigger game is released on the same day, effectively fucking the sales numbers! Yayayayay. Ah, doesn't matter. Not like I'm gonna get a Kinect anyway.
YEEESSSS!!!! Please be alan wake 2. The first was so amazing. If anyone can incorperate kinect well its remedy.
glad to see a talented dev working on a kinect title. Got kinect for the family, but I am personally looking forward to the titles geared towards "core" gamers. So far I'm looking forward to to seeing these kinect games in action: Rise of Nightmares, Haunt, Codename D, Project Draco, the new Steel battalion, and now this upcoming Remedy game.
Once again ignoring 40 million+ people just to get half of potential sales for what reason is unknown. Wether its contract based or just dumbness the world may never know...
If this is how things work then every single Exclusive Dev that makes exclusive games should go ahead and all start doing multiplatform games to sell 40 Million.
The games Remedy makes are allways good.
that they do
Poor Remedy. What have they done to you?
at least they will make another good game :) .. but not kinect !!!!!!!!! >.< .. kinect is useless , it's only funny ... lol :P i don't hate xbox360 , i just want good games ... but i hate when people compare ps3 games like gt5 to xbox360 games , get real and stop acting like an ape ... can't wait to see the game :) , but i don't think it's alan wake 2 .. i enjoyed playing alan wake but my brother didn't like it , it's not that special and not that good , but still have fun playing it , the best game in xbox360 is splinter cell , i loved it ...
Hmmmm.... All the haters bashed Kinect for not having core titles. Maybe Rare is bringing out a core title and guess what happens on N4G.COM? The same people who cried how Kinect has no core titles are bashing an announced possible core title. Go figure... So lesson learned... If it's not a Sony game on N4G.COM...it will get bashed.
The 'N' is back. yeah. that's how things always worked here.
thats pretty much n4g in a nutshell Sony defense force is everywhere.they're climbing in your window snatching your people up so youall need to hide your kids hide your wife and hide your husband cause there hating on everyone in here
Then leave allot of you certainly wouldnt be missed. The only thing i hear from the 360 side is SDF this and SDF that and sales sales sales.
it's not only doesn't have good games , it makes you look dumb when you play it .. it's not a good idea ... bashing goes for xbox360 fans too ... if it's in xbox360 fans start defending it even if it's a stupid thing ...
But don't you find this comical? Really? The biggest grip from most people and not just the haters was Kinect has no core titles. Haters on N4G.COM really pushed this point. And in honesty they have a good point. There are no core titles. The haters said bring the core titles! Now you hear RARE might be bringing a core title to Kinect and the first thing that comes from the mouths of those very same people is: "It sucks" "Rare what are you doing" So it comes down to "damned if you do, damned if you don't because it's not Sony game" FYI: Take a look at ALL the games for MOVE taht were built from the ground up for MOVE and not just patched. Their all causal games and not CORE games. Go figure. The Pharisees would be envious of such hypocrisy.
im not a fanboy im telling the truth ... move have great games right now like re5 - heavy rain - MAG - the fight - tumble - time crisis - sports champions , all of them are good , reviews are wrong about that , reviews almost all the time are wrong and it will have really really really good games like killzone 3 - sorcery and other games ... but look at kinect , it doesn't have a single good game and the way you play makes you look dumb ... so why would i play a good game and doing stupid things and jumping like an ape XD ... when i play move i don't even stand and if i want i don't need to aim at the tv ....... i don't hate the xbox360 , i hate how stupid microsoft are , they spend all that money on a stupid camera , they should have make games instead of this ... if you didn't understand what i say then you are just a fanboy , i just want a good games.........
All those games you mentioned are PATCHED GAMES. ALL MOVE games that are built from the ground up are all CASUAL Wii/Kinect type games. Is that a good idea? Hey I don;t see you bashing those games? Those shovelware MOVE type casual games? Hmmmm.... RARE might bring out a CORE game and people like you hate on it, EVEN though you are asking for CORE games. So what is it? Make up your mind. "they spend all that money on a stupid camera , they should have make games instead of this" I think MS has more money to spend actually and if you are saying that MS won't be making other games than Kinect games, then you are better than the Amazing Kreskin at foretelling the future. Awesome that you know what MS plans to do in the future. As for stupid decisions because MS is investing in Kinect, once again you are a fortune teller. How do you know Kinect won't be really successful in the future? Or are you wishing it won't be? Until you can read into the future, I suggest you call The Amazing Kreskin for lessons.....
Wow. I knew this would make its way to N4G. Allow me to enlighten the crapload of fools that have made their appearance in this topic. (1) "You will be working on the next iteration of Remedy’s unique game engine that was previously used in Alan Wake." What does iteration mean? What does next mean? What does "next iteration" mean? It means that they realize that the Alan Wake engine had a few shortcomings and they are WORKING on improving it. What a novel concept. As if they are the first to improve their engine tech. Isn't the first step to improvement and progression realizing that you have a problem and stepping out to make changes to ensure you no longer have that problem? (2) "Experience on motion-control technology (e.g. Kinect)" MarkusRMD, a Remedy Employee from the Alan Wake Forums said "Please do notice it's (Kinect) under appreciated additional knowledge, i.e. not a must have requirement." (3)How is Remedy falling to any level by experimenting with Kinect? I'm not a Kinect supporter, but even I'm not so bigoted by blind hatred for Kinect (MS) to condemn Remedy for trying to do different things with their games. (4) WE DO NOT KNOW THAT THIS IS ALAN WAKE 2. I hope it is, but we can't and don't know for sure until it is officially announced. (5) There is NO confirmation that this game will be a Kinect-only title. As I said in point 3, they could just be toying with the tech. Now, stick that into your intellectual pipe, and smoke it.
beat me to it!
you are fucking right!!!
but I sure as hell ain't playing its sequel with Kinect. And that's a deal breaker!
ALAN WAKE IS AWESOME, but kinect? uhh i dont thing so
Why dont they go back to there Max Payne franchise? I have a feeling Max Payne 3 is going to stink without Remedy. Now they are working on some Kinect games?! What a joke.
What is wrong with working on Kinect games? Or maybe in Remedy's case they are using features of Kinect or using it as an option. People(and I use that term loosely) whine and complain Kinect has no core games and then when a core dev starts to look at Kinect people start to whine again. GMAFB, I think people just cry and whine no matter what. I say hell yes and bring it on!
Hopefully this will be hybrid controls as I cant see this game working too well with just Kinect controls...then again I was surprised Kinect works as well as it does. I could see them using your hand to guide the flashlight. I guess we will just have to wait and see...
Alan Wank : No hands
If Kinect is manditory NO DEAL, That is NOT worth an extra £130.
I see how it could actually work, except.. the whole having gun play and having to focus the light and be accurate with that.. But, they could have a mini game of dodging farm equipment.
Will Kinect still be available in 2016? Won't we all be on the 720/PS4/Wii 2 playing with totally new control methods or standard pads again? Somehow, i don't see Kinect having a lasting effect of core gamers lives. Look at the Wii... successful at first, the the gimmick starts to fall off as casual gamers move on to the next thing and core gamers pick up their pads once more.
Exactly how I feel. Kinect, no matter how it is implemened, will not have enough of an effect on the hardcore gamer to use it as any sort of long-term replacement to the controller. And in the same sense, casual gamers will grow tired of the same genres of games with the same play style. What seems new and fresh right now, will be old and boring in about 1 or even 2 years. It will not last that long.
A very memorable and well polished game. And Kinect is just sweet fun. I'll be in line to buy their next release. Looking forward to it already.
Like Forza 4 , PGR5 and so on.
I'll put it on my (already impressive) 'could be' list.
