    Alan Wake is 4.49 on the 360 Marketplace right now. Not sure if that's a new price or it's been like that for a while. Worth a shot?
    It's 69p including DLC on the PC at humblebundle

    Alan Wake is easily worth 4.49. It's lot of fun. I really enjoyed it all the way through. Only the collect-a-thon that pads it out lets it down.

    Alan Wake is excellent fun. I think I paid just under thirty for it and was happy so for under five pounds is a steal. The spin off, American Nightmare, isn't as good but still worth picking up in a sale.

    @Choppi 320 points on 360 right now. Bought it yesterday. Will play it once I've cleared another couple in my backlog.
  • Deleted user 23 May 2013 16:55:09
    320 :o. Bargin, that is about two pounds. I need to learn patience and only buy old games.

    Well the signs that the 360 would not be BC with XBox one came a few weeks ago when MS started doing bigger offers on XBL.

    So hopefully other games get knocked down to 320MSP.

    Don't forget the 2 DLC's are also on offer. And both are great IMO.

    Just bought Alan Wake on Steam via the Humble Bundle pay-what-you-like offer.

    Already played it on a friend's 360 a year or so ago and loved it. Looking forward to another play-through :)

    $5. Felt guilty but compared to most on Humble Bundle I'm probs a high roller!!
  • Deleted user 23 May 2013 19:04:04
    I've never paid for something where I got the choice of how much do you want to pay. With Alan Wake I may have paid five pounds but after I would want to pay another fifteen as I got so much enjoyment out of it.

    I would feel guilty like you I think.

    Was it wrong of me to buy Alan Wake for 69 pence?

    I feel a little guilty, only a little mind as I already bought Alan Wake on the 360 at launch. Never played American Nightmare though.
    If you paid full price at launch then don't feel guilty. Just think the staff at remedy all got 0.069p each for your purchase.

    I threw in $2.50, and that's really for the OST.

    I still have my Maglight from buying at release somewhere...
  • Deleted user 24 May 2013 15:20:48
    I saw the sale in XBL and really thought I should get The Writer and American Nightmare. So I loaded it up and attempted to continue from where I left off in The Signal but... I just can't go on. I want to love this game but the combat is just balls. I tolerated it for the full game as between all the monotonous drudgery there were some fine moments but I just can't stomach it anymore. Constantly being ambushed in a dark forest by the same enemies spawning right behind you time and time again is just so damn boring and I don't have it in me to continue.

    I then remembered that I didn't enjoy playing through the full game that much.

    For 4.49, I took a punt.

    It'll be a little bit rude not to.

    ... will play it later this evening, the way it is supposed to be played!

    : )

    From what I read about this game, Alan is a 'bit of a dick'? Is that how his character supposed to be sympathised with?

    Its hard to sympathise with him as, yes, he is a helmet.
  • Deleted user 24 May 2013 15:42:25
    A total bell end.

    Barry on the other hand. Barry is awesome.

    I liked Wake as it went along. Also make sure to pick up the 2 DLC's and AN which are all on offer as well this week.

    American Nightmare was pretty woeful, I couldn't even muster enough enthusiasm to finish it.

    Cheers for the Humble Bundle post, completed the 360 version but would like to see how the PC version compares, plus never got around to getting American Nightmare. Loved the OST too so that's a nice bonus!

    The two pieces of DLC don't give you any closure on the story, but they do move it forward ever so slightly from the main ending. Also I would say if your a fan of the combat, which I am, the DLC does offer some genuinely great set pieces.

    My first impression consists of this:

    ... how many collectibles?!

    A hundred coffee flasks, a hundred manuscript pages, twenty-odd TVs, radios, Power Ranger figures, multicoloured fruit and vegetable baskets.


    I really think they could do without those pointless distractions however, finding the treasure chests is quite cool and the one TV set I found made me curious to find the rest, however many there are.

    Finished episode one.

    Not bad so far. Horrendous tearing though. Combat is so-so as is the lip syncing.

    Visuals are admittedly impressive, especially within the surroundings near the cabin in the middle of the lake at the beginning.

    I shall maybe try and play one episode at a time.
