So who's waiting this new masterpiece from Remedy which is categorized under the genre of psychological action thriller. As the name of the game suggests it tells the story of a writer Alan Wake who cant sleep and travels to a dream clinic or something. And when he writes his new book some weird shit starts happening in the small town where he visits. I know that's is only the plot of the game in a nutshell but I cant wait for the release of this game. If you did not already know it's coming to PC and Xbox 360. Here's a link for more information about the game. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Wake.

This game has been in development about three or four years now and it's been surrounded by enormous hype. Are you going to get it? Because I'm sure to get it for 360 because the game wont perform at all on my PC.

Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!



i've been loosely following this game... loosely because i don't own a 360... but, i'm impressed with what i've seen so far... this is really the only 360 exclusive that has peaked my interest so far... was never interested in mass effect, never interested in halo or forza... played gears of war but, never thought it was anything special, etc...

this one looks good though... a survival/horror action game where you use your flashlight as the main weapon... i remember watching a gameplay video where he was running through the forest and the cops were trying to find him... then all of a sudden you see these massive trees in the background moving and you hear this loud roar from some creature as a cop car goes flying across the screen...

like i said, i'm impressed and a little jealous laugh.gif... here's the video i was talking about...

part 1


part 2



you've all probably seen these videos laugh.gif... but, that right there was awesome...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Not sure how reliable these sources are, but I believe Alan Wake on the PC has been CANCELLED.

LOLOLOLOL.

I'll get this four years after it's release date, just to spite it for taking so fucking long. Not really that interested, but I'm sure it will be making it's way into my backlog at some point.

How come there ain't no new thread on this by now? How do you like it? I've played for about three hours so far, has been great. I love the atmosphere, story and that TV mini series, Springs something.. The action is paced and equalized very well, my heart beats hard after every encounter with the enemies and after every successful dodge of an axe biggrin.gif

I've been watching this game too. Like bOnEs said, I too haven't been very impressed by Microsoft's other exclusives other than GTA which we now have smile.gif. But this game stands out, in a good way. Everyone loves a good meaty survival horror story to get their teeth into.

I'll be building an overclocked i7 machine with plenty of RAM and a decent graphics board over summer, so I'll have to get this game for pc.
