Straight from the Microsoft X10 event and Remedy Games, we bring you the latest trailer for Alan Wake.
Did you enjoy this video?
this is so silent hill all over it .. i luv these type of games and obscure , seems nice to me .
i love this kind of game it remind me rule of rose I really become happy when i realized that this game is going to release for PC.
why is it canceled
Looks pretty good. May have to try it out.
Why the hell is this on PC-related news, since Microsoft went all Judas Iscariot on it's oldest customers?
this reminds me of that amazing game obscure, going to love it
it looks pretty win for me im just hopeing its not like alone in the dark because that game turned me off of story games like this until now with the exception of fallout 3
Also i heard reports that Stephen King helped write the story, is that ture? or what?
LOL if you didnt find those scary, then you wont find this scary, its a thriller. Dead Space has been the only game worthy of being noted as Scary. but regardless this looks really good.
Oh, this looks good.
It looks so Silent Hill meets Alone in Dark for me!!!
hope it's the one game that might scare me. F.E.A.R. and condemned were not scary. I hope this one is.
its just a image shotgun!!splinter
makes me think its based of a Stephen King story, its got that feeling. Bit of a cliche that the main character is a writer of all things. Still looks interesting though; will watch progress
Man, can't wait for this one.
Does anyone else think of Secret Window when they watch this?
man looks more like a M+17 game that would be rated for blood and gore
I am worried about this game, it has been talked about for 5 years now and yet no release.
If it had been done and released 5 years ago i guess it would hit the roof, but today when we have allready seen all the new flashy graphics in many games like crysis etc, it will only be a game instead of THE game. I still belive it will be a good game and hopefully a deep well written story.
I am so longing for a serious game, with that i mean a game that has IT, story, feeling, excitement and offcourse fantastic graphics.
I am deeply tierd of all these promising games, that looks really nice and seems to be a thrilling story, but in the end its the same as all the rest, hordes of copy/paste unbelivable alien/mutated creatures sworming my screen. I wish that just onces they could make a game which has more of the atmosphere and creepy feeling where you are terrifyed about looking around the dark corner with your almost out of battery flashlight, the sound of something breathing in the darkness infront of you.
But then it would most likely pop up some extremely big, droowling mutated dogpig with a touch of alien that came from an underground millitary base where they once again work on some genetic experiment gone wrong. Please, please PLEASE just make ONE realistic game, without alienated mutation hordes of endless spaming nuclear blast and 500 billion rounds.
cuz looking at all the mountins and the city.. it looks like you can go whever you want....im prolly gonna be dissapointed tho. aw who cares this games gonna be tite
like i said in the interview video, this reminds me of silent hill from ps1. which is a good thing. does anyone know if this is open ended. sorry dumb question, but i been living in a cave for a wile and need to quit slacking on my games haha
hah, buzz it, but to me this looks like 3D arcade game.
at least from what i've seen from the trailer.
Screw Remedy. They can all go to hell. They went from a favorite studio to off the list because of this game.
Me too. Remedy is one of my top studios
this is gonna be one hell of a game. i can not wait.
alan wake is getting boring its been showing of trailers and release dates for over 5 years..and the game looks 'ok' not the 'special' game it should be with that long making time zzzzzz
Hey Calanorn! Did you ever hear of punctuation?
Console wars shall rise again with alan wake and heavy rain.
good luck to both sides

Remedy is amazing at making these nightmare illusions, like in Max Payne I & II. I'll get this day one if I can.
This sure looks cool. Remedy always succesful!
simply said, a good 95% of games nowdays favour flashy graphics over game depth and diversity. i have trouble finding a game that i can play through to the finish and think 'wow, that was great fun'. It seems that i will get halfway through and think 'it was fun for a while, now its getting repetitive' and i will look for something else to play.
The beauty of the pc of course is that being open architecture you can still use an xbox 360 controller on the pc if desired. Bring this out on pc now god damn it, i dont want to play it on 360 even though i have one i want to use a keyboard and mouse. oh yeah and dont give us some stupid cheap port either those things are killing pc gaming and poor pc games support = poor hardware sales = less windows 7 sales etc as was previously mentioned by someone in an earlier post.
The game will release on May 18th, 2010.
if it's not coming out to the PC then don't show it in the PC section!
I want this for PC plz.. :(
I hate your stupid commercials...For every minute or so of a streaming video I have to watch your crappy 30 seconds commercials. Btw Nortona antivirus is one of the crappiest AVs around...
I am not sure but I think this video is just the same they showed us every year.
Well, hope the game is good after all the waiting and hype. They created Max Payne after all.
Watching this trailer made me sad. Damn port!
I have all three consoles and a pc i much prefer to game on my pc i work with pcs and ive been building/gaming on them since i was young but i also enjoy certain games on the 360 depends on the player.
That said there is something wrong if your old enough to remember old school games and not think gaming today is being dumbed down gameplay wise and scrubbed over with flashy graphics. Look at the clancy games GR or RS not vegas or advanced warfighter tripe. JJB03 modern games are not that creative they are flashy i prefer old RPG's compared with newer ones with the exception of bioware games look at oblivion the game is useles when compared with morrowind hell you can completely break the game gameplay wise in oblivion by just not leveling up your character.
These days there is to much of this regenerating health and level scaling abilities for creatures and such and im afraid that came with the new console generation you took a few hits in the old rainbow six you died you didnt duck behind cover and wait for your health to regenerate.
As for alan wake i never believed the hype for the game and have had no intention of playing it since day one but i find it a pretty cheap shot after this many years to say the pc version is cancelled when that is the platform the development team first stated the title for.
Well said Taffelost. Couldnt agree with you more. Thank the gods there are still companies like Red Projekt (The Witcher) and Bioware. (I know, Bioware has made some ports, but on the whole, their games are top knotch.) And lets not forget Bethesda. Oblivion was so much better on PC than Xbox, same with Fallout. There is no comparison to be made between consoles and PC's. As you said, a PC will win out EVERY SINGLE TIME. Next time someone decides to play a shooter, see which works better; an xbox joystick or a mouse and keyboard. And there is no way in hell the PC gaming industry is going to die any time soon. Thats just foolish talk.
I dunno, looks pretty damn good to me, as Irwin said, on any platform. Looks like a good twisted story too. Not the same old #@$%
Wow, there's a lot of angry folks commenting here. All I can say is this game looks like it's going to be good for any platform! Go Alan!
No Basher we don't assume you're immature because you don't like PC gaming. Trust me it's all based on your pubertal agressive rhetoric. It's also funny how you state PC gamers as having a chip on their shoulder while at the same time you're too mature and successful in real life to play games anymore, contrary to us nerds without any real life. I'm however curious what it is exactly you don't like about PC gaming? There's nothing a console can do that a PC can't do better. This is an undisputed fact I think everybody can agree on. So what is it? The price? Do you find PC's hard to use? Would be interesting to hear why you don't like the PC as a gaming platform.
As to wheather consoles are dumbing down games to better suit the mainstream market you have plenty of examples. Examples like the Rainbow Six series, Operation Flashpoint, Need for Speed series and many, many more. Sad thing is that most new games are made for the mainstream console mass market, then often ported to the PC. I'm sure you can connect the dots. I don't want to come off as a snob, I really don't, but there's plenty reasons I prefer the PC over consoles. If that makes me a snob so be it.
this better have a really good story and why has it taken like almost a decade to actually come out and @WildZeppelin i do not understand why you think the industry is dumbing down gaming because from what i can see its far from that just think of the people who slave over making games we see today the time money and creative people have put in to them now is unreal surely you would rather play the games you just mentioned out of nostalgia which is something all do from time to time
You're missing the big point here. If the PC gaming industry dies out, SO WILL THE CONSOLES! Seriously! To be able to create a game at all, you'd need a PC with an engine. As long as games are made on the pc (which they will be) the PC gaming industry will NOT die out. Also, you can't deny the success of Blizzard. They probably make the most money out of their games compared to the console exclusive companies (mostly from WoW). So in my opinion, if you're so tied to your console, you better pray that PC gaming doesn't die anytime soon.
This is the way I see it, and sorry for adding my two cents. I've been playing computer games since the Apple 2E in the early 80s. Had a Nintendo and Atari 2600, 386SX16 in the 90s. I've seen the evolution of systems and games. All that seems to be getting better is the graphics, because PC or consoles are sorely hurting for those who have played games like X-Com, Daggerfall, Darklands, Space Quest, or even the original Doom! I'd like for them to go back to these style games because they were so far deeper than anything in comparison to day. PC and Console gaming -IS- dumbed down so bad it's hard to even want to play these days.
Im pretty sure the xbox (running custom ibm processors, 3 symmetrical cores running at 3.2 GHz each,Custom ATI Processor, at 500 MHz) and the ps3 (Cell Processor with 7 SPEs, at 3.2 GHz,Custom NVidia Processor called RSX “Reality Synthesizer”, at 550 MHz) are basically beefy PCs. I dont know why there are fanboys that cry and wine and boast about whichever they love to use. I mean...shouldnt we just be mad at the companies making a mint off of "exclusives", or adding free content to some but not all gaming systems, releasing games later on some consols. Why are there always people on these forums that argue over which is better. All consoles(wii is kinda different right now, and cant be compared, until sony and microsoft jump into the realm of "active" gaming in my opinion) have pretty nice setups, PC included (yes you have to build your PC out yourself...but isnt that kind of the fun part of being a PC owner...) I was looking forward to this game and was teased by seeing this vid on the PC section. I enjoy PC gaming but thats because i work with computers and am very comfortable with them....i also loved playing Halo on the old school xbox back in the day, and gran turismo....cant wait to play that on the ps3.
The point is....the huge companies monopolizing on fan boys are the real problem... not which system you enjoy playing on.
"Theres nothing "dumbed down" about console gaming either, its just you PC snobs would like to think so. For example how are the FPS on consoles any less than PC FPS?" Keyboard & mouse pwn controllers when it comes to FPS games...
