Re: Alan Wake

I'm still not convinced. I'll wait for impressions from more reputable sources before I decide whether or not to buy this. I mean, L&O is a former Canadian, for cripe's sake!

Re: Alan Wake

"Former" has to count for something, right?

I'm still hoping that this will show up in my Gold Box before my GoW III credit expires next week. (although I did also preorder from Gamestop using their 25% off discount as a backup.)

Once a Canuck, always a Canuck is the truth.

As far as I know, this is the first preview on the web...if you guys want to help spread the word I wouldn't be disappointed.

Re: Alan Wake

I have this preordered and am pretty jazzed for it, but I hope they fix the screen tearing mentioned by L&O. That shit drove me nuts on Darksiders, almost to the point where I stopped playing the game.

I think I may have found a workaround to prevent that. Apparently, the issue stems from setting the 360 to 1080p when the game itself is NOT 1080p... I am going to set it down to 720 and see if that removes the tearing.

Re: Alan Wake

I just hope the game is not short. I just finished watching the 2 Bright Falls episodes on XBL, I can't wait to see more.

Re: Alan Wake

Damn, that 2nd ep was creepy as fuck. Is the game's tone similar?

Re: Alan Wake

Not sure if this was already mentioned, sorry if it's a repost : At Best Buy, you can preorder the game for $5 down. Not a big deal usually, but here the preorder comes with a trio of download codes which net you an avatar I Am A Wake shirt (male or female) and a very nice premium Bright Falls theme. Like all Best Buy game preorders, it's fully refundable, with reciept only, after the game comes out (not that I would ever encourage such behavior; just nice to know if by some chance one finds a better deal elsewhere).

And the answer is yes.

Re: Alan Wake

are those videos going to be included with any edition of the game? LE?
I checked Amazon and it doesn't mention anything. I think read somewhere about it, but I can't remember where.

Re: Alan Wake

The game just keeps getting better. Put aside any doubts you had folks, the long development time seems to be worth it.

Also - I changed my video out settings from 1080i to 720p last night (for some reason, my 1080p setting is greyed out...even though my receiver AND TV handle it) - and the screen tearing stopped happening. I need to play more to make sure it really happened, but making the console not have to upscale seems to lessen the issue.

Re: Alan Wake

Glad to hear it's living up to the hype. Between this, Red Dead Redemption, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Modnation Racers, May's going to be a hell of a month.

Re: Alan Wake

Screen tearing is one of my biggest pet peeves as it tends to give me a major headache. Hopefully it will be patched like Darksiders was.

I doubt it seeing as the workaround is simple.

Re: Alan Wake

I'll be grabbing the LE of this game - sounds and looks fantastic.

Wonder if it has any replayability though.

I'd like the LE as well, but since Amazon isn't giving a $10 credit on the LE (yet), it works out to be a $30 difference in price, and that's too much $$ for the extra content I'd be getting.
