    Arrow Alan Wake





    Story
    Alan Wake is a bestselling horror writer. Early on in his career, his fiancée Alice, was his muse. Just prior to meeting her, he had started to have strange dreams which he used as material for his first book. The book was a big success, a dream come true. But then Wake’s fiancée vanished without a trace. Wake was devastated. He couldn't write anymore, his dreams stopped and he began to suffer from insomnia. At the beginning of the game, Wake travels to a sleep clinic to seek treatment for his condition. The secluded clinic is located near the small town of Bright Falls, Washington, far away from the stressful urban lifestyle. Receiving treatment at the clinic, Wake is able to sleep again. At the clinic, he meets a mysterious woman who is the very image of his missing fiancée, uncannily so. At once, his dreams return, this time as terrible nightmares. Wake begins to write again: a new book based on those nightmares. But something is horribly, horribly wrong. Impossibly, the town of Bright Falls starts to change to something awful that bears a close resemblance to Wake’s new book. Wake ends up fighting for his life with a gun and a flashlight in his hands, trying to understand what’s happening.

    Gameplay
    The name "Bright Falls" has a meaning. The game promises to have photo-realistic graphic qualities, realistic pixel shading, and dynamic shadows that change according to the position of the sun. To avoid lags and hangs, the game will benefit from a high end PC and the Xbox 360.

    The dark-forces (enemies) coming to 'take care of' Alan Wake are vulnerable to light. So the most useful weapon of all is actually the flashlight. You will be able to place booby traps which will illuminate when executed, etc. Light will weaken or hurt Wake's enemies, and creatively taking advantage of any and all light sources within Alan Wake's grim world ought to be one of the interesting aspects of play.

    Plus it will be free-roam a la GTA. But no multiplayer. Of course i doubt anybody would care about it not being multiplayer



    It will be out on Xbox360 and PC.
    what do you guys think of this game??

    What do I think? I think thumbnails next time please?

    Yeah the story sounds pretty good (if a bit clich&#233;d), I like the sound of the light gameplay mechanic.

    My only misgiving, is that it will probably require a collosally powerful machine to run it, in the demo they did at some show (I can't remember which, but I think the video was posted in CC) they were using an overclocked quadcore PC with (I think) 3GB of RAM and to high end graphics cards in SLI.

    They were actually using a QX6700, 2GB of RAM and a single 7900GTX.
    The game isn't demanding at all since it's also on the X360
