Alan Wake coming to PC

Alan Wake coming to PC

If you only own a PC, you must have shed quite a big amount of tears when Alan Wake was announced as a 360 exclusive. Now this should cheer you up as Remedy just officially announced that their game was coming to PC in early 2012. Both DLC are also in the works, whether they will be included or not is yet undecided.

It's Remedy, so I expect a great PC version. Also, 1080p! The game already looks great at sub-HD :P

I wonder if they will add anything exclusively for pc.

Very much so. One of the most immersive games ive played since Max Payne :)
Commented on 2011-12-14 23:02:06
I will play it of course but what about the new one "American Nightmare I guess" will it be available also to the PC?

Nope, it's a bit overhyped IMO. Atmosphere is quite good, but gameplay is average. Probably you will get tired/bored from shooting the same guy half-way through the game.

What about the comfy couch stuff? lol
Good news to those who wanted to play it on PC.

It's a shame we're never going to see the REAL PC version of this game. Looked far more promising then what we actually got.

That was a tech demo, there was no game around it.

The levels were bigger than you'd expect for a linear game, and there was quite a bit of exploration. The daytime driving sequences hinted at an open world, but was guided enough to not get lost. It's nice to want things, I guess.

Because it's a PC game...

Sadly I lost all my interest when I found out that it was not going to be an open-world game. Then I got more upset, because the reason was that there could not be a decent storytelling in open-world. That was what I was hoping to see. Those two elements together. A horror story and open-world. And yeah, it is not even horror, it is a thriller.

But then I was really glad that there is a game Deadly Premonition which has all that. I wrote a small review about that game:

Deadly Premonition is not available for PC, though.

Read what supercomputer wrote again, cause you are not making the least bit of sense.

A shame i already finished it on xbox, would have liked to experience it for the 1st time with PC graphics. Its gonna look so crisp but will not be the same as playing through it the first time. It was an incredible journey. Ahh the dreamy soundtrack...

But did the horror parts in Deadly Premonition come during the open world parts? The open world parts were more for relaxing, driving, doing menial tasks.

A better example would be Dead Island, but haven't played it so don't know if the open world or how much daylight ruins the horror atmosphere.

Deadly Premonition has a "mode" where enemies appear after midnight in open-world parts. I haven't explored yet how limited it is. It is true that most of the time enemies are indoors. Still it suretanly is an excellent horror story and has open-world. You can choose what you will do next if you are not in that part of the storyline where it is more limited where you can go. Deadly Premonition has similar location to Alan Wake. Small town in Washington state. I was also interested about that.

I am quite sure that I would also like Dead Island.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (29 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (30 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (41 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (44 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (45 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I believe it has to do with the fact that there's too many games to play at the moment, and most of these new games ar very long. This is the week FF15 was just released, and WD2 on PC as well. (47 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Maybe, but I believe it would have become a kind of "cult-classic" niche game even if it failed to become a very huge success. Still, if a game like TF2 isn't succesful, it's a real shame. (48 minutes ago)
