Top men are here! I thought you weren't working today. That's awesome.

God, I really do love me some Alan Wake. I don't really get how people constantly shit on the combat. I never thought it was too much or ever got bored with it. It's so fluid and snappy. Probably the best combat in a TPS. As long as you know how to fucking aim you aren't going to be running out of ammo.

Also, can't wait for people to start complaining about Patrick/Ryan combo

Aw I was hoping for Brad to be in this quick look :( Oh well.

Not watching this yet, because I'm buying this for sure day one. Just wanted to say I am very hyped.

Don't promise Mike Patton if you can't deliver, guys.

I want to watch this, but I just bought Alan Wake on PC and I'm guessing there will be spoilers.

I loved Alan Wake thought it was amazing, this is a day one purchase for me

Never understood the love for Alan Wake. Thought the combat was bad and the writing poor typical wankery.

Same here!

I loved the first one, but I think I'll wait for this one to be on sale or something. If it was a true sequel, I'd be all over it. But being a sort of self-contained short story, I don't feel so pressured to get it right now.

Wubadubadub is that true? YEAH! Woah, you go big guy!

I just S Ranked Alan Wake acouple months ago and boy was that a pain. Hopefully the achievements arent so difficult in this game.

Posted by LordLOC

This looks great. I really hope Remedy does bring this to PC. I just finished the original on PC, really good game. And even though it's 3 years old, it still has some of the best lighting in any game I've ever seen (including Battlefield 3).

I just hope they don't go down the "Push out new games quick so we can make more money guys!" and pump out new "episodes" of this game. Also, don't add multiplayer down the road. Unless it's multiplayer Arcade/Horde mode, since that's already in the game. Maybe add some sort of story coop mode though, that would be interesting.

Can't wait to get my hands on this. Really liked Alan Wake and the DLC episodes, always welcome more.

Wow the voice acting is not very good at all, is it?

Weird you'd say that, because I think the voice acting is incredible? Maybe the secondary characters aren't amazing, but the narration and Alan Wake/Mr. Scratch are fantastic.

Alan Wake has got an Uzi in his hand?

You must hate a lot of video games then if that's the case.

Posted by Mathey

Alan Wake fell apart for me when I found I could just run from checkpoint to checkpoint for about 3/4 of the game.

I was one of the people who liked its ending, though.

Well, I never finished Alan Wake myself so I dunno how spoilery it was, but ye they seemed to spoil some pretty big things.

Really looking forward to playing this on Wednesday.

Just started playing AW on PC, can I safely watch this without getting spoiled too much?

Re: Ryan's comments about the camera part way through the video, the actual explanation is that Alan Wake uses a simulated cameraman. He runs around as an invisible character in the game world and tries to follow Alan with the camera, so that's why it sort of favors one shoulder or another - the fake cameraman is supposed to be filming over Alan's shoulder while trying to keep the camera focused on the action. They demoed it at a GDC talk and showed you the cameraman running around to try and chase Wake.

Posted by Humanity

@mbr2: Well I feel similar. Played through the entire first game and it felt like a constant gauntlet of running through forests and getting endlessly assaulted by enemies that just popped in from nowhere. Since they were all darkness monsters they all looked the same pretty much - thats the dark quick one, the dark slow one, etc. I also don't see the point of making an Alan Wake game that has more combat, especially since they didn't seem to introduce any new mechanics to it.

Nah stay away.
Posted by drag

Guess I'm the opposite of these guys ... really didn't like most of the first game. But I thought the combat was really solid - stripping the darkness away and having to deal with batteries as well as ammo reloads added a certain something. Felt nice, loved the flashbangs and the dodge move. It just pretty quickly burnt up all my goodwill by getting so repetitive when you had just a light and a handgun and the same three enemies coming at you for the billionth time. Never ran short on ammo either and I played on Hard for some reason where everything takes an extra bullet or two ... unless they bumped supplies up as well to match and overcompensated on the higher difficulty.

Yeah, the woman in the observatory is completely godawful.

I just player AW on PC and really, really liked it. For some reason I was pretty skeptical about the game and it totally blew me away. I agree that it had a bit too much combat, but I playing Uncharted 3 not long before and it had a much bigger problem with that.

The second DLC was also incredible in its own unique way.

Posted by AndrewB

Oh man... Oh man... this quick look, or more accurately, that one TV scene, made me instantly want this. If it's available separately on PC, I'll pick it up. If not, I'll think about the XBLA version.

Posted by Abendlaender

@EvilTwin:

Ok, thanks

Posted by Stealthmaster86

More Alan Wake is a good thing.

Posted by Sammo21

@bhhawks78: I never understood how people have their own opinions about things.

Posted by Sammo21

I love how entitled they are sometimes, and gamers in general. "This is not what I want....". Ok then, don't play that one MODE. Jesus Christ...

Posted by tactis

ahhh I am torn if I want to get this, I really hated the combat in Alan Wake, loved the story and the world though, and this seems even more combat focused...hmmmm
