Well, it might have also meant that Remedy had to get funding elsewhere if it was to be multiplatform.

Resources and funding doesn't fall from the sky....

Ah well it's not like Alan Wake was a great game anyway it was mediocre at best.

I know. repetitive gameplay mechanics + Stephen King type story.

Now, King has written some really classic stuff, like shawshank redemption, the green mile, the shining, but his recent work is pretty shit, and Alan Wake is kind of like that.

You mean Amazing narrative + fantastic atmosphere + a fresh take on a third person shooter. Easily one of the best games I played last year. Story alone is enough of a reason to love it.

I really loved the game and the Limited Edition had this fantastic in-game documentary that while you play the developer would pop up in a small video and talk about the scene.

That alone made it the best LE/CE I have ever bought!

It is in no way a fresh take on the genre.

The gameplay mechanics are so limited. The enemy types aren't scary at all. You know exactly where they are and how many of them them there are before any conflict ensues.

It's BS. Collecting manuscript papers to piece together a story is not a fresh take. It's a common way of driving the plot, and is one of the cheapest ways to do it, next to cutscenes.

The lip synching was so off, I couldn't believe they didn't fix that issue before it went gold.

The story ends pretty predictably, the environments became repetitive and the atmosphere lacked consequence.

At no time during this game did I feel horrified or scared.

I'm easily scared by games like Dead Space or Resident Evil 2 or Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, etc.

Alan Wake is an unremarkable title surrounded with years of hype and controversy because of the development hell.

Why not just release the PC version? They have the build.
