    Because it took 18 years apparently to perfect Half Life 2.5: third person perspective.

    Your post made me thing if I actually liked her too but, huh, I really don't. I don't even know her name and I don't think she spoke a single line so far. I hope they don't go overboard with weird and forget personality.

    Let's try to at least tag these if the game has *just* released, especially if it's a developer that likes to fill their games with easter eggs and secrets like this.

    my bad. I figured it would be fine since it was public knowledge, but I should've tagged it just to be on the safe side.

    I had absolutely no idea Kojima was in it and I'm probably the biggest Remedy fan around here. I just don't scour the internet for every detail for a release that I'm excited for these days.

    It's fine, tho. No biggie. Just tag them spoiler shits.

    How's the lore? The discussions about plot/metaphysics/mysteries are something I've always loved about Alan Wake and Quantum Break.

    We probably need an actual rule/guideline for the spoiler-tag period. Like maybe 2 weeks or something.

    I've bitched on the internet for literal years that Remedy should just go full out on the weird aspect of their games instead of trying to pander to the main stream, normie crowd. Especially since Quantum Break, the game where they completely ditched the weird and tried to be as mainstream as possible which resulted in their worst game by far.

    This game feels like Sam Lake's apology for Quantum Break. The Ashtray maze is an absolutely fucking endearing experience.

    Shame the protagonist is so bland compared to pretty much everyone else in the cast, especially Alan Wake and Max Payne's actors.

    I laugh at anyone who thinks Quantum Break dropped the "weird" because it's pretty clear they only paid attention to like half the game and completely waxed over the whole "TIME MONSTERS THAT LEAKED THROUGH INTO OUR WORLD" concept and the fact that you are now potentially literally working for one at the end.

    Anyways...







    Alan Wake 2 is looking good.

    Yeah, man. After reading 3 odd pieces of paper in a game with like fucking 300 of them in a time travel story straight out of the Sci Fi channel, I was shaking so hard I didn't leave my house for 4 days.

    A few Alan Wake references doesn't suddenly change the bland atmosphere, story and characters of a game.

    I'll never understand how Remedy botched Jesse's model so much. They usual nail that aspect better than most.

    That second expansion.

    Sam Lake isn't wasting any time after Remedy bought the Alan Wake rights from Microsoft.

    So I really enjoyed this game. The ending was a bit of a letdown because it looks like they left it open for future DLC but yeah...
