    Hey, I completely understand what you think and I am pissed off too, but that doesn't mean that Alan Wake will be a good game.

    I upgraded my computer to play this game and even pre-ordered it back in 2005. Then I heard that the developement had been stopped. Why would Remedy do that?

    Well they didn't, because that was Microsof's decision. Remedy WOULD LOVE to bring the game on PC and I so would I. However, I am still going to play this game with my friend on his 360. Life is harsh, but a game cancelled on a certain platform isn't going to stop me playing this game.

    No need to kick a dead horse but you need to get a life or just an Xbox 360. I can understand your grief but pal there are much worse problems occupying the space between you and me. Like Remedy would actually take heed and have an about-face. They are a business and so is MS. MS needs you to buy an Xbox 360 so for now they will make you wait or simply believe that Alan Wake won't be coming to the PC.

    I just hope Alan Wake will turn out to be everything we all hope it will be as it really need to be. After so many years in development they are going to have to sell quite a number of copies to break even. No doubt Alan Wake 2 and 3 will follow, they need to amortize and make effective use of all those assets and years tweaking that engine.

    I should not have mentioned that you should get a life. That's a little harsh from me but there are more important things in life and besides... if you were planning on playing Alan Wake on the PC that means you got a pretty massive rig. Meaning that you have been able to enjoy some truly great PC games for the last 3 to 4 years or so. You can't have everything in life! That's that!

    It isn't just Alan Wake I'm concerned with. I'm much more worried about the Max Payne series. Canning Alan Wake on the PC was simply the final straw. Remedy went too far.

    Plus, I'm a PC gamer. I don't have a 360 to play Alan Wake on. Even if I did, I'd be hard pressed to be convinced that I'd want to play that game on a gamepad.

    I decided to give Remedy its games back, one megapixel at a time.

    Epic not putting GOW2 on PC, and Lucasarts taking their sweet old time on Force Unleashed also comes to mind.

    Roots, gotta remember where you come from yo, keep it real I say, don't abandon your hood, the people that made you who you are, all that jazz.

    Oh, boohoo! Get over it!

    Remedy never owned the Max Payne IP. 3D Realms did and they are the ones that sold it to Rockstar.

    It is out of their hand whether or not Alan Wake comes to PC. 100% Microsoft decision.

    So just get over it

    Dear UPS Lynx,

    Remedy called me this afternoon in tears. It had just read your letter, you brute.

    Oh, and get over it!!!

    Probably this is another M$ effort to force game players to its console. They did the same thing to the MechWarrior series (remember "Lone Wolf"?) and did the same with Halo - when M$ took it over, Halo was being developed as a Mac game. Mac users were assured there would still be a Mac version alongside the PC version. M$ lied to both groups. Trying to force everyone onto an Xbox is an old, very old, story.

    Yeah Bobby why don't you just go schill out 200USD for a 360 so you can play one game that was supposed to be a PC exclusive from the start. Jeez it's so easy and cost efficient., don't know why you haven't done it already. Consoles RULE!!!

    agree 100% but you make it sound like remedy are the only ones giving us PC gamers the finger.
    are we forgetting MW2s dedicated servers?
    or the BS ubisoft DRM.
    or the no SPC demo, or ruse beta.
    not to mention having to wait months for console ports, if the games were being made for the PC i could understand the delay, but there not.
    its not only remedy betraying their fans its almost every god dam developer!
    the only developers out there that support their PC community are valve and ID.
    crytek, im a little iffy about.
    im worried crysis 2 on PC will just be a crappy port of the console games.
    if they prove me wrong, and deliver on what the first did than they can join the group.

    newsflash , until piracy on the pc is sorted out , there will be less and less games coming out for it.

    lawl. Dat song.

    For the last time, piracy is not the real problem. Don't you guys realize how prominent piracy is on consoles? It is more common on PC due to the simplicity of it all, but I can name off a list of friends that have modded consoles so they can pirate. Piracy on the PC isn't an excuse when you have platforms like Steam in place. It's just an easy scapegoat for companies like Microsoft who want to gobble up profits for themselves, case in point, Alan Wake.

    Come on, you have to be realistic here. Piracy on the PC is far more rampant than consoles.
