    I'm glad it's not alan wake 2 because jesus christ that game was awful. fine story but the gameplay was repetitive and horrible. they should go back to making something similar to max payne, now those were good games.

    So far their deepest gameplay mechanic has been "point at stuff until it dies" so I don't have my hopes up for anything meaningful.

    Remedy sure try to find a bigger gimmick with each game since Alan Wake.

    I was afraid they'd do a multiplayer-only shooter like rumors have purported before.

    I'm glad they're making a new IP and retain their strong character- and action-focused hallmark.

    I didn't care much for Alan Wake so I'm happy if they go back to something more akin to the first two Max Payne games.

    Whenever I see Sam Lake in a video I get real fucked up because it's squishyfaced Max Payne doing weird Finnish accented game design talks.

    A few of you may know my opinion of Remedy from my recent post in the Quantum Break thread. But, yeah, I'm with the three people above me. Not excited. Fuck you, Remedy. I can't believe they thought Quantum Break was a good idea.

    man quantum break sucked a heck of a shit ton, and they still want to mine this 'cinematic 3rd person cover-based shooter with narrative innovation!'

    Remedy has forgotten their gameplay/cinematic balance, it was spaced out well in Max Payne but not so good in Alan Wake. Quantum Break had some good gameplay but it was really cinematic heavy, yet to play it since it runs like shit on PC though. I'm interested in what they might make, I do like Remedy games.

    Alan wake are still ok i guess.

    I havent played QB, even have the key from humble monthly last month i think. I might want to try it, but really low on my priority list.

    Iirc they doesnt even bother to put proper resolution scaling in game, and just use xbone upscaling thing.

    Like what the fuck, and i lost almost all interest immediately

    Can't wait till they announce it won't come out for PC (at least not until 2 years down the road)

    Doubt it. They recently haven't done console exclusives too much, although it's unknown if they have that deal with Microsoft and if this game will have anything to do with them. If it was a Microsoft title you'd have no issue if you were a Windows 10 user but Windows 7/8 launch would be delayed like with Quantum Break, I would guess.

    AFAIK they're not working with Microsoft anymore, they switched to 505 Games.
