    Saving the webisodes and the book for after I finish the game in case of spoilers

    I already got one spoiler just from the goddamn titles of the DLC currently. Bah @ DLC.

    i just finished the 2nd episode, i wish i had more time to play, seems i can get like 1 episode in every 2 days at this rate (alas, real life beckons).

    LOVING the game so far. i cannot recommend it enough to horror fans (im not really one myself) and fans of just good mature game/film making! it really does play like a well written movie (but you actually play 99% of it, vs watching cgi).

    this game doesnt seem very popular here, its a pity, as a place filled with mature gamers, i figured this would be a hit. are people just unwilling to spend the money (i dont blame you, times are tough) or still hesitant to buy?

    I just finished the game. Besides for a "wtf" ending, this has "game of the year" written all over it, especially for it's story. And I can even give the ending a pass because I know the story will be continued thru the DLC.

    Now that I finished my first play thru I can go read the book and watch the special features dvd(I also didn't want to accidentally discover any spoilers before I finished). Tomorrow I will start my nightmare play thru so that I can clean up the rest of my achievement list.

    Since I'm on my second playthru(nightmare difficulty) I decided to enable the developers commentary while I play. This is the only console game I can ever remember having a commentary soudtrack thru out the actual game, although they pretty much pop in and out at certain points with useful information. You have to install this commentary track from the bonus disc and then enable it from the game disc. Doing so unlocks an avatar trophy(a long sleeve shirt/jacket thingie). And you can turn the commentary on and off at your leisure from the options menu.

    After hearing you can pretty much blow through this one, I can't justify $60 on it, even if it's a great experience. Yeah, there will be DLC, but I can't help but think I'll have the same feelings about it as I did with Heavy Rain and Dante's Inferno: fun, but not $60 fun.

    This game has $29.99 all over it for me.

    I just picked up the game tonight havent had a chance to play it yet. While I would normally wait; the LE was just too cool to risk missing out on and it seems to be relatively hard to find around here already so it was a no brainer for me at least,

    I just beat the game on Nightmare difficulty. I'm missing 2 thermos, 2 signs, 1 chest and 1 page. And thats all by just playing thru the game twice and exploring as much as possible. I'll probably use a guide to find the remaining items. I can't wait for the first DLC to come out.

    What a difference a day makes. I just found the remaining thermos, signs and chest I needed as well as getting the other achievments I was missing. So now I have perfected this game for a perfect 1000 out of 1000 gamerscore. It feels good to have conquered this game....until the DLC comes out and adds more achievements and gamerscore

    Let me just say that the battle at the farm is one of the most epic things I have done in a game in a while. THAT is what the stage battles in Brutal Legend should have been like

    I agree. I didn't bring it up before because I didn't want to spoil anything but you really can't spoil it. I can easily say that it was one of the best gaming moments I have experienced this year though.

    Started this one a few days ago. I'm enjoying it. The whole presentation made me turn off my lights, been a long time since I did that in a game (Silent Hill 2 long time). The story (and manuscript pages) are intriguing as all hell. The combat is a little bland but still fun. Almost done with Episode 2. Only gripe is:

    Holy hell yes. The very first Taken you run into, in the nightmare, I started backing away from on the bridge. I get to the end and I'm like 'Wtf, where do I go?' and I get hacked to bits. Next time, I manually turn the camera and keep going. Riiiight.

    That and the characters look a little plasticy, but I can forgive that.

    I picked up the LE, I agree with the above posters that it is worth the extra cost. The book is cool, however I was hoping it was going to be the manuscript from the game. I know I can read it in the game if I really want, but I thought that would have been a cool "breaking the 3rd wall" kind of thing.

    They really nailed small tourist town in the Pacific Northwest. Completely. The sounds of the forest, the landscapes, the kooky locals, shops, everything. Added so much to the atmosphere, and the game is already dripping in atmosphere.

    Overall, I loved the game, despite its flaws. I am really disappointed to see it is not selling well. It never cracked the top 20 played games on Live. When I picked up my preordered copy, there were only 2 or 3 copies sitting next to the PILES of Red Dead. Shame it doesn't get more sales love than it has, because it seems to get good remarks from everyone who plays it.

    Not selling well? Really? That's a shame. Also: another vote for the lovely LE.

    Just started Episode 4. Really digging it.

    Yeah the LE rocks easily the best LE I've seen.

    Its funny you mention the sales of the game. I posted about it on another forum I visit in the video game thread( that should probably tell me something right there if theres ONE thread for all gaming) and the only response I got was a silly comment about how the name of the game reminded one guy of Alan Thicke. Really? Of course most of that thread is corrupted with guitar hero/rock band song pack releases or chatter about 3D. They have been talking alot about Red Dead though so maybe its just that Red Dead is the more mainstream of the two?

    I suppose the sales are conjecture on my part somewhat, since I don't think the NPD data is out on it yet. But Red Dead is #2 on Live consistently since its release, and Alan Wake is nowhere to be seen, even on the week it released. Its even below the likes of Snoopy Flying Ace. I think the writing is on the wall. :-(

    I have also heard that sales of this game(US only) haven't been very impressive so far. If that continues I doubt we will see any future releases beyond the two DLC episodes. And that sucks because this game was very well made(although there are a few things they could fix).

    Edit: I just read on Joystiq that both DLC episodes will be $7 each instead of the $10 price seen on the extras menu in the game. That price was just a placeholder.

    Finally able to pick up the CE edition on Amazon! Pretty nice setup, I admit.

    I hope to play this soon, once I finish Blue Dragon.

    I was going to purchase the game but then I saw a story about the excessive amount of advertising in the game which turned me off enough to change my mind.

    You're kidding, right? There are what, a couple ads for Verizon and a car that the main character drives a couple times. Big friggin deal. Is your sales resistance so low that you can't ignore those? It's not like the bad guys are wearing McDonalds T-shirts and whisking you away to Disneyland....

    There's a difference between seeing an add in a sports or racing game where they actually add to the realism and adds in suspense games that change the atmosphere and ruin the moment. And it's not about my sales resistance, it's about my advertising tolerance.

    Forget about all that. You are missing on an excellent game just because of a few adds?

    I agree with this sentiment:
