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.

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...

Yeah I bought Xbox 360 hoping to get other games than just GTA and like you I did not fancy Halo, Gears of Wars, Forza and other games but luckily I can debend with almost an certainty that this game will be a hit. smile.gif

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.

yea, i was going to mention that the PC version was canceled as well... but, i checked amazon.com and it's still for sale on the PC... so, i don't know what's going on...

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.
