First Alan Wake: Night Springs screenshot from Gameinformer!

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - First Alan Wake: Night Springs screenshot from Gameinformer!

So what game does that picture look like so we can start calling it unoriginal and whatnot?


But seriously that does look promising.

...What the game needed was what seemed to be promised earlier in the development cycle. Which was a stable hub world that allowed for some branching. Not to mention some needed juxtaposition that would allow players to get a chance to come down off the adrenaline before more monsters were thrown at them. The impact was very much lessened by the constant attacks. Really it is anticipation and dread that give horror its real power. In the end I became inured to their tactics after about fifteen minutes. When I realized I wasn't going to have to be hyper aware, because I was just going to be mobbed constantly.
...


That and the fact that it went into Slow-Mo and zoomed out to show you exactly where the enemy was... simply destroying any and all elements of surprise.

 

But, as you said, it was overall a good likeable game that could have and really should have been so much more. That being said I am interested in this XBLA Spin-off and will likely get it as soon as I can after release.



let the hype train start rolling for MW3.

Folks really need to stop calling this Alan Wake 2. This is Alan Wake: Night Springs; change the thread title.

OT: This looks really good and shows how far XBLA games have come. Like someone mentioned, it will probably be similar to the Dead Rising 2 XBLA games, where is wont be a full game, but run on the same engine as the full game.


alright, done, i have no idea , i've not followed news on this, because i don't want any spoilers.



Since people are saying that looks next gen (what's wrong with you) and graphics war blah blah...

The lighting looks terrible in that screenshot. Real light doesn't behave like that except in thick fog/smoke. Clearly there is not any of that around. Those beams of light are just downright stupid.

But you can't say anything from ONE screenshot so it should rather be left alone.

But seriously, next gen!? U crazy.

Wishful thinking after seeing the crazy crap the Uncharted 3 pulls.



Such a mistake to put it on Xbox Live Arcade, it devaluates the franchise.
