Alan Wake new screenshots

Alan Wake new screenshots

As we now know when Alan Wake is going to be released, Remedy can start showing us more about the game on a regular basis. Today, they sent us a batch of new images of the game. Needless to say how high the expectations are on this one after such a long time in the making, but given the studio's previous games, it is hard not to get carried away and be very confident.
Update: The images being available on several sites, here they are again.

Extremely nice looking environments (especially from an aesthetic point of view).

I just can't understand why this kind of environments are so rare in games. It's just a mystery.

Thank god there are some European developers out there spicing up things a bit ;p

OK, lots of light-blooms, over-done motion-blur and a persistent alien-like sci-fi feeling aside, being the least of my concerns... the gut feeling this is giving is the TOTAL-CLIFF-HANGING endings in each plot-section that I fear might mar the perfected technology it seems to boast over half a decade of development. I don't think LOST and Twin Peaks like experiences have much charm left in them except for teens...

Apart from that, this seems uber-awesome, do have reservations on the anti-aliasing front though, don't know if these screens are touched up or not, but its what we've been seeing all along 5 years... same cliff, same car, same timber, same guy with a gun... I mean is this single valley all thats what have they been working on all along, perfecting each scene?

More so, as Driftwood pointed out above, my recently risen question has more merit by the day... what extra mile would we see Remedy will be going to express their such long-term development? Physics? interactive water or vegetation?, level of destruction?... all these extensive features are yet to be shown... for one thing Remedy told in recent interview that they gimped sandbox in favor of atmosphere, OK probably good for the game so what else is there... really excited to know, yes, expectations are very, very high!

Apparently, these image were not to be released before tomorrow or the day after. We're looking into it, but we decided to hide the news for now, even though the images can be found on the net elsewhere. Sorry guys but we don't want Microsoft to think it was put online knowing that there was some kind of NDA.

Can't wait for this game.. i hope it fullfills the wait. From what i've seen of it so far it looks very promising.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/alan-wake-hands-... - just posted this on the "whats up" section, but it's worth putting it here too as it shows some new gameplay footage and talks indepth of their hands on experience. Mentioning the way the camera is used as a particular "trump card"

Thos graphics are stunning, technically and artistically. And that opening music is just gripping, goose bumps. Please don't get delayed again...

http://www.gameblog.fr/news_13854_alan-wake-5-minu... a better link, with more footage. It looks stunning!

can't wait for this, i just hope the 5 year wait was actually worth the wait.

i really dont like alan's animations, he runs like max payne, ie, like a retard.

just watched the footage, looked awesome. this is the game to show us what the 360 is capable of. i want alan's tourch tho, it can illuminate stuff miles away...lol
Commented on 2010-02-18 13:34:21
looks fantastic graphically...with the pc version canned, its a pity I don't have a 360...Too many upcoming games to justify it...if I had one, would be there day !

http://images.gamersyde.com/image_alan_wake-12275-... = Wow!

This and SC:Convinction are the best looking games to be seen on consoles imo.

obvious fake pr screenshots!
lower the res and texture quality
add some blurriness because of upscaling to 720p
add aliasing and dithering
and you have the actual graphics...

funny how what works? if it's one of the best looking games this gen there's no need for fake screenshots is there?
Commented on 2010-02-18 14:50:52
it's funny how with "blurriness, aliasing, dithering, upscaling, low res textures, and fake screenshots" it's still one of the best looking games this gen... it's almost as funny as you feeling the need to create a profile specificly to pick away at a game that is..i repeat.. one of the best looking games this gen.

see? hahahahahahaha, funny.

lol ok sweet heart. If you say so.

"fake screen shots".. or promotion shots, are always edited to the best presentation quality. That goes for most games.. why it offends you so much in this particular case i don't know. It's just the way the world works honey pie.

Enjoy your day

First it was john from RDR and now its Alan I mean,I don't find wnything particularly bad about the way they walk or run.

I think you have issues XD

well, yhea sure... alan walks similar to max payne speed and animation (but way less stiff). They made that game.

I prefer that the game controls and reacts like a gamer's game, than akward tank controls and seuqences (Silent Hillish or that scene where he goes on and the door opens, and not a stupied quick time event to just open the door). this is a little less but sill much a loose "sequel" to max payne in a
open world, as Heavy Rain is more to Indigo prophecy. And that is where the true resemblence lies.

Looks crazy. The only real beef I have is the facial animation. How this can't be a priority in any game with a dramatic angle, I'll never know...

Yeah I know that but what Im saying is that walking animations are not that important well not to me at least,I have seen more akward walking animations in real life people really,and I dont go "Hey you walk like a retard!" or something like that,maybe we walk like retards too but to us its normal maybe to Alan its normal to walk like that and run the same for John in RDR.

That is just a part of the them.

They didn't fake anything. Did you see the 5 minute video bleachedsmiles posted above? That gameplay footage looked amazing, better then those screen shots. Alan Wake is definitely one of the best (if not, the best) looking game this generation on a console platform.
