Re: General Gaming Discussion

Wait, Alan Wake was one of the best Xbox games ever made? Where was I when this happened? IMO, the game is mediocre at best. Decent writing, but everything else (especially the scares) fall flat on their face. It also reminded me too much of Alone in the Dark (2008), which was bogged down by bugs galore.

I have the MGS HD Collection CE pre-ordered. Never played the second or third game (nor Peace Walker), but the 248 page artbook sealed the deal for me. I have MGS4, so I want to see what happened before. I never picked up the collection for the PS2, so I figure the PS3 HD one will do.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

I think they were saying Alan Wake was one of the best exclusive titles, and even if you don't like it...you kind of have to agree since it's pretty much in a small club of good exclusives like Dance Central, Halo, Forza, Gears and Lost Odyssey.

The PS2 collection came with MGS1 tho. It's on PSN tho right? Definitely play that first.

How much was the CE? $69.99?

Re: General Gaming Discussion

No. They specifically said that Alan Wake was one of the best, exclusive or not. I could name a shitload better than Alan Wake, which was a major disappointment. The game looked great at first, but as Microsoft got involved more and killed off the PC version, the game suffered.

The CE is $79.99.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

It is a bit much, isn't it?

If someone enjoys Alan Wake and considers it one of the best, that's cool. I just don't think it is, though. The 360's list of exclusives is sparse and of the ones there, it probably is up in the upper echelons (especially over games like Crackdown, the original Vampire Rain, Bullet Witch, Spectral Force, Operation Darkness, Magna Carta 2, Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Fire, Tenchu Z, and a bunch of other games).

Alan Wake is mediocre? No game had the atmosphere that game had. Not only that, it had one of the most interesting and 'wtf' stories in any game. Everything was well done in that game, why would call it mediocre? The majority of this forum praises mediocre games like crazy. Gears of War, for instance. That game is what you call mediocre. The majority of games out there that are heavily praised by reviewers and/or fans are mediocre or even under average, and then a masterpiece like Alan Wake comes around and they shit all over it. It's definitely miles ahead of other 360 exclusives and even PS3 exclusives, such as Heavy Rain, Gears, Gaylo, Fable, LittleBigPlanet, etc.

And the 360's exclusives are underrated. The PS3s exlusives aren't that special, most of 'em are overrated shit.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

smackdown, I hope this doesn't offend you, but everyone gets on my case about my opinions but it's uncanny that I don't see anyone getting on your case. I must be a better heel.

I thought Alan Wake was great. It was what I was hoping it would be...the closest thing to a Twin Peaks video game without it being Twin Peaks.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Alan Wake was great untill about the 4th chapter. Then it turned into a clusterfuck of bad cliches and plot holes.
