First 10 minutes Xbox 360

The second downloadable episode of Alan Wake was released last Tuesday on Xbox Live for a price of 560 Microsoft Points. Allowing to make a link between the first season and the second one, though we are still waiting for its official announcement, this DLC should not be considered as "the true ending that has been removed from the original game" as some like to claim. The original ending of the game was in perfect keeping with the game's atmosphere and story, and for a sequel to be released one day, it had to end like that. The two bonus episodes have clearly been made for the fans, so they can connect a few more dots and, most of all, understand how Alan is going to prepare his return. It is hard to say more without spoiling anything, but suffice to say that, given how cheap the game is today, you have no excuse for not playing it along with its two featured contents. More twisted than The Signal, The Writer will have you dive into the darkness even more and after completing it myself, I can tell you it is, once again, a very atmospheric episode, floating somewhere in between anguish and madness. Here are the very first 10 minutes of this new chapter, a video you obviously should not watch if you have not played the main adventure and the first free DLC.

it's pretty good, the atmosphere is still top and the story is pretty weird shit (in a good way), but..

God, that end fight is a bitch. I mean the "boss" of the original game was a farce, but a repetitive "kill me", "hey I'm not dead yet so kill me again", "wait, once more" kind of thing isn't what I enjoy either.

Btw, I hoped we would get a longer epilogue..

I might be one of those that argue that the signal and the writer is a wellspent buck.. The signal wasn't the best addon due to that, in my opinion, didn't really add that much to the story, but the writer just keep things moving forward (plus, it was strange.. strange indeed)..

Why would you do that when The Signal is free?

Is there any "complete" edition of Alan Wake planned? I never got the game and thinking if they are going to do something like that'd just wait.
