Realistically I don't expect to see DX11 and other cool features in this realise but one can always dream biggrin.gif

I just want the original non-consle dogpoop version with the open world aspects and daytime/nighttime gameplay.

Pretty likely this is a garbage port and a moneygrab.

Finally... I've been waiting to play this game for so long
post #17 of 57
I'm glad I waited to get this. After I heard that the PC port had been cancelled a year or so ago, I've been getting close to getting it for 360. But now that its back to PC, I'm pretty happy! I hope they make at least a handful of upgrades, and don't make it a cheapo port, but since they waited so long, I'm afraid killnine may be right.

The only thing is, why rez this game after so long? kookoo.gif

The game's story or gameplay isn't anything either. It has no legs to stand on.

There's a few factors, I'm sure profit was one of them. Possibly the whole piracy thing, mainly thinking they'll get a large profit on the Xbox 360 and get the rest on PC when sales are beginning to hit stale.

Absolutely ludicrous.

I personally LOVED alan wake's story and gameplay.
It dares to be completely different from all the other games that saturate the industry. The gameplay mechanics using the light and flares is extremely unique and fun. Especially in the DLC expansions which further the darkness reality and give the player some really cool abilities. The story is gripping and interesting to say the least and has you going from the start. If the opening scenes don't catch your attention in anyway, then you need to stop playing - it isn't for you.

Graphics wise, for all the haters, isn't bad at all. In fact, Alan Wake is visually stunning. If you didn't know this already, Alan Wake was supposed to be an open world game on the PC but they signed off with Microsoft and it became a 360 only game. They cut the whole open world design.
But they didn't ditch the engine which is STUNNING.
The only reason why if you look at screenshots of the game, it looks meh, is because of the 360. The game's engine is still "open world" based but they were doing a linear game on it. It was poorly designed in that manner of speaking, so the 360 took big graphical cuts. Game looks great still but it has the potential to looks REALLY astounding. The proof is in the pudding.

If you watch the cutscenes in the game, you'll see the true beauty of Alan Wake and its engine's capabilities. It's core engine rendered footage. No CGI or special after effects, but rather PC engine rendered.

Vignetting aside, its no CGI/effects trickery. Those are native assets to the game in their true glory. The only bad part about the game's graphics are the character models being so stiff.

Also, the ending credits is Space Odyssey. You cant top that.
