Alan Wake – Impressions (From Chat)

Here’s the first hour of the game as I play it for the first time and chat to Bill, who’s played it before. This picture sums up my initial impressions.

  1. Haha, I don’t know. I’ve had achievements turned off for a long time. Actually, that does explain the saving icon showing up after you listen to the radio or TV.

  2. Any MGS4 (chat) impressions on the way? I would love to see discussions on NANOMACHINES, Old Snake Angst, Character Undevelopment and Install Times/Cutscene Lengths.

    by the by, where do you guys do chat?

  3. Yeah, this game was a disappointment. If it the writing was better and the gameplay wasn’t so repetitive, it would be pretty good.
