Re: Alan Wake

Oh snap - I finally made it around to reading the manual for this game and in the warning pages it says "In order to lessen the load on the internet, Scott1598 is prohibited from playing this game."

What page is that on? Why would it say that? Is the manual not the perfect place to look for answers? Why are you picking on the game Liver? As a mod shouldn't you go easier on the manual? I bet you even bend the spines of books you read. Why do people bend the spines of books? Is it considered rude to bend the spine of a book if it is one you borrowed? What about a library book? What is the library book has already had the spine bent a little, then is it alright? Why does the spine of a book look nothing like a spine on a cactus? Why is the plural cactI (when I is clearly singular) and the singular is cactUS (when Us is clearly plural)? Who decided the word singular meant one? Does it have anything to do with the cell phone company? Actually if I'm a total newbie would it be newbiehibited? At what point would i be disqualified from the Olympics if Alan Wake was an event?

And about alan wake.....looked into it a tad more, think I'm gonna pass for good now.

To the person who made the condemed comment: Guaranteed I jumped at the same exact spot you are talking about as well (almost shit my pants the first time I was left with just a flash light as well..."You go upstairs and check it out" to which I replied to the game while playing "yeah, go fuck yourself.....you go".

Dead Space: the ending scared the ever loving shit out of me....wasn't fully looking at the screen (attention was starting to turn to the cold beverage next to me as I thought it was over) and when it happened.....I realized my speakers were up too loud, scared the shit out of me, then I dropped the controller.

So what made you decide to pass? As reviews are being posted online it appears to be doing well.

Re: Alan Wake

Well, I definitely will be buying Red Dead Redemption when it comes out and I don't know.....I'm not to big on these types of games (half sandbox games as I like to call them).

I think it looks really cool and even the story (from what I know) seems very interesting......but I'm just not sure I would buy it. I was the same with Arkham Asylum, I played the demo, said I was definitely going to buy it then just lost interest.

Picking this up after work, but I think I'll tackle RDR first.

Excellent. Good thing you're out east because it'll still be only 7pm for me when Lost is over for you!

Re: Alan Wake

I got mine from Amazon this morning. I won't really get a chance to play until Thursday though. I chose this over Red Dead Redemption; this looked far more interesting

It's not that, RDR just has more legs. AW is more of a rental. I usually only read Stephen King novels once, but I still watch Deadwood, Young Guns, and The Magnificent Seven as the fancy strikes me.

I plan to play both tonight. RDR while it's light out, then switching over to Wake when the sun goes down.

Re: Alan Wake

I bought both, but only because Amazon dropped the price of Alan Wake by $10 and offered another $10 gift card on top of it.

Re: Alan Wake

My copy from Amazon has arrived. However, Red Dead takes priority...as does Mass Effect 2...as does Lost tonight.

So yeah, I'll post my impressions of this in a couple of weeks probably.

Re: Alan Wake

I bought this today as well, don't know when I'll be able to play it. Sort of a strange "Spring Cluster" of good games these next couple of weeks.
