Just finished the American Nightmare expansion on Gamepass ! it was awesome , i can't wait for the sequel hopefully it's open world
at least they finally have rain in their Pacific Northwest.
edit to add:
Ugh. Epic Game Store.
This one might never come to Steam. Epic is publishing it.I've lost count of how many PC games I've had to pass on because of EGS. It goes like this:
1. Oh, new PC game that looks great!
2. Shit EGS exclusive
3. Is it on Game Pass? Yes = Yay. No = Well, I suppose I'll be waiting 3/6/9/12 months to buy it on Steam
A next gen exclusive Alan Wake will look absolutely phenomenal. Can't wait.
This is going look bonkers,
Remedy with current gen hardware making AW2, got a feeling this game will take some beating in the visual department.
For years Remedy has been developing games on a proprietary game engine called Northlight. And Remedy creative director Sam Lake says that Alan Wake 2 will set a new bar for Remedy in terms of visual quality.
“Alan Wake 2 will, by far, be the best-looking, most beautiful Remedy game ever,” Lake says during a sit-down interview with IGN (which you can watch below). Given that Northlight is the engine powering graphically-rich games like Control and Quantum Break, this is a bold and exciting claim. IGN asked if the partnership between Remedy and Epic Games on Alan Wake 2, where Epic Games is publishing the title, means the Alan Wake sequel could be developed on Epic’s Unreal Engine 5. But Lake says that it’s sticking with Northlight because it has tech best-suited for the experience Remedy is trying to create for the next Alan Wake game.
“[Alan Wake 2] is on Northlight. We feel that especially for this kind of experience where atmosphere and stylization are more important than ever before, is that we know Northlight so well we can focus on certain things and push certain things forward.” The Northlight engine was designed to push forward storytelling elements Remedy Entertainment favors when developing games. This includes an emphasis on cinematic realism, photorealistic characters, large-scale destruction and physics, and more. Alongside Alan Wake 2, Northlight is being used for the upcoming CrossfireX story campaign which Remedy is developing for Smilegate.
Alan Wake 2 was officially announced at The Game Awards as Remedy’s first-ever survival-horror game. And Lake says that Remedy is taking advantage of the creative freedom to design a truly scary game.
Idk, unless Control (which I’m playing right now) has a part where an Asian chick dies and her soul gets trapped in a dresser drawer knob, I don’t really see it. Their games seem more Stephen King/ Xfiles to me.Yeah, Alan wake and Control especially had a lot of inspirations from Lynch works.
I love that absurdity.
Overlook hotel, the maze, the narrative style and presentation as well as the written lore and stories you find in the game are lynchian af. Maybe it's just me.Idk, unless Control (which I’m playing right now) has a part where an Asian chick dies and her soul gets trapped in a dresser drawer knob, I don’t really see it.
