"alone in the dark" co-op mode, heh (call me weird, but I think that's funny)

You know what's scarier than fighting monsters with fully automatic rifles? Fighting them together with a friend!

^ What they said.

btw these in-game screens looks like crap. Enemy design is super generic.

Spooky scary!

Then again, has Alone in the dark been any good since like...after the first game? :P

They should have let it die, the last one was awful and this looks like it's going to be same...
Commented on 2014-09-01 21:45:50
Finally found a way to make the game worse than the 2008 one? :D

They shouldn't hold back on PC, it looks like they're still suffering from the stigma of ps3 and 360. the characters and environments should be at least 4 times than these screens.

The trailer looks like it could be more up to date. looks better than theses pictures.

I read it was a remaster.

Yeah, because it's pre rendered.

There are ways to make that tense and even frightening.
Also, games like Resident Evil 4 (and beyond) exist, so I don't see why this is such a big sticking point.
And the game does not look nearly as bad as people are making out. It looks fine. Screenshots only show a fraction of a game anyway, so judging based on that is just silly.

Looks good. people hate cause it's a PC exlu.
Commented on 2014-09-02 16:53:18
That doesn't look like first person to me!
And as someone said before it is funny that a game called "Alone in the dark" is co-op.
My expectations are quite low so hopefully it won't disappoint me.

It could be both, but if the teaser is any indication, then the first person view will be there - which it was anyway in the 2008 game.

PC exclusives don't suffer because of consoles. PC exclusives suffer because of the PC developers.

If it looks bad, it's because the devs didn't have the means, the money, the time, and/or the interest to make it look better. These are things that won't change with time and hardware. There will always be ugly games.

Want to explain why? Or is it because it's not on your preferred system? PS4, correct?

I just checked out more info, it's UE4 based so it's going to turn out much better down the road. at least they picked a good engine.!

    Tiz I love em both to be honest. When I start playing either of them, I'm glued for a while albeit for different reasons. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (3 Hours ago)
