Damnit all, Microsoft! Buy Remedy!!! Dat s*** go together like Starsky and Hutch. Jergens, porn hub and ultra soft Kleenex with Aloe Vera for sensitive skin!!

I swear, if Sony buys Remedy instead, I'm going 100% PlayStation for the rest of my days.

It would be typical of Microsoft to make the same mistake they made with Bioware. I don't know how long they're going to sit on their hands. Enough with the it's not the right time bs..just do it already!

All of us except Microsoft apparently. I can just picture a boardroom meeting there:

Guy: Sir, the fans want a narrative driven game. How about Alan Wake 2?

CEO: Yeah, that sounds great but it won't sell like Halo, Gears, or Forza so no.

Guy: Okay, but that's what the fans are ask...

CEO: No. We don't pay you to think. Best of luck in your future endeavors.

Fans might want it but it still wouldn't sell and then it would be considered a failure.

Man, Alan Wake is so underrated. I popped it in the other night and got sucked in immediately. I love the style and atmosphere. The fog, the lighting, the Episodic angle, the music, the tension. So good. I just don't get when people dog it, honestly.

I never heard a single person dog Alan Wake. But you forgot another good part.....Barry's humor.

Oh, I remember plenty. Boring, repetitive, poor animation, bad controls. All things I disagree with aside from the abysmal facial animations.

I couldn't get through Alan Wake myself. I didn't like the combat.

I don't know if that counts as dogging the game, though. Just didn't do it for me, that's all.

It's because the story and execution of it's story elements made the game great.

Remember this part, with agent Nightingale?


Or the way that episode 2 ended with that eerie reveal followed by the music.


I think Alan Wake's story is where it truly shines. I'm playing Ryse: Son of Rome and it kind of reminded me of Alan Wake in that the gameplay might be simple or repetitive but the story and visuals were strong enough to make it something special.

I thought the core gameplay loop was fun, but yeah, the story and presentation are top notch to this day. All the elements of sound and visuals are spot on.
