E3: Gameplay d'Alan Wake

Let's go on with the big gameplay videos from the Microsoft media briefing. We've been waiting for ages, and Alan Wake did not disappoint. It is in a beatiful 720p screener (sound is direct feed ) that we propose you to discover, or rediscover, these six minutes of dark and spectacular gameplay.

wow, talk about a game that oozes atmosphere. Great visuals and mood. Must buy for sure.

A very poor cousin to Heavy Rain, in my humblest opinion.

They don't really have that much in common to me

And it figures that at least one fanboy comment had to mire an otherwise perfect thread.


Alan Wake looks awesome, and if it is anything up to the standards of Remedy's past games, it is certainly a day one purchase.

Thanks for the video, let's find out why 360 fans get so much excited about this game.

It will be nice just for this game to finally come out. I mean, how long has this taken? :o(

I'm not sure, but I think it was announced in 2006

I remember being impressed with the earliest footage of the game...despite not really knowing what the game was about. But then year after year, I became less interested, and I couldn't help but wonder why other people were so jazzed.

After seeing some actual gameplay...I still don't know why people are so excited.
Commented on 2009-06-02 12:58:04
oh Alan Wake, Alan Wake .... This was truly something special.

Yeah... that's what happened with Max Payne too.. Still, it was a huge hit. I won't bother waiting, I'll just expect it to be really good when it's done. :)

I certainly hope it's good, but I can't help but get an Alone in the Dark vibe from it. Also, monsters disintegrating like that is lame.

Sorry, fixing the stream.

This footage was the highlight of Microsoft's entire conference for me. Absolutely fantastic.

Heavy Rain seems to be more like Fahrenheit.
Alan Wake is more like a slower paced Resident Evil, in my observations.

I love how the flashlight burns the enemies, and how the flare did the same, god that was some amazing lighting effects.. So many games have great graphics but mediocre lighting effects, but this game really feels warm :)
Great colors, great lighting.

Pffft. This may share similarities with Alone in the Dark, but the difference in quality is like day and night.

WOW fantastic

Nothing like heavy rain though is it. Far as i can tell heavy rain is very scripted..QTE driven gameplay.

Alan Wake allows you full contol, and is supposed to offer an open world for you to progress the story in. Including dynamic weather. So when you consider the visuals are pretty much on par with heavy rains thats quite impressive

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @aphex187: £70?! (50 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And you need the script extender for stuff like SkyUI. (52 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX script extender functionality (at least temporarily) (53 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Even games with robust toolkits are often enhanced by third party tools. Skyrim is a good example. There's still a lot of folks playing the original version on the PC because the re-release broke (53 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Ironically the last thing I had to hack to get to run correctly was a Microsoft Game Studios title. That bodes well for the future :P (54 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i have run some injectors/hacks on a few games to fix certain limitations of resolution or such, but not since Dark Souls 1. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i rarely use mods. last time was xcom2, and that supports mods out of the box. I'm not that into replacing models in WWE, GTAV or SFV. But ofc, for people who live for that stuff it's not a good thing (1 Hour ago)
