What is Alan Wake?
Developed by the intrepid minds over at Remedy Studios, Alan Wake is a psychological horror action thriller revolving around the title character, Alan Wake, and his debilitating coffee addiction. Thrill as you enter rehab! Chill as you recount to other junkies the time you sucked a man's dick for a triple shot of espresso! Gasp in horror as Alan Wake leaves rehab, in control of his life once more!
It's a psychological horror action thriller that subscribes to the formula of "Max Payne + Silent Hill 2 = GOLD". Which should come as no suprise, since Remedy developed both previous Max Payne titles.
What's your format here
This is a Video Let's Play, recorded in stunning HI DEFINITION
, featuring commentary by myself and my good friend Earwig Squad
. We're not gonna talk over cutscenes or any of that bullshit. Formats should be blip, viddler, and direct download
Updates should be roughly 20-30 minutes in length.
Any other hosts?
Youtube is not gonna be a host for a myriad of personal reasons, but it generally boils down to "Youtube sucks", but if you have a personal favorite video host that you like to use then yeah, sure, I'll upload it there.
One rule for this LP: Do not, under any circumstances, discuss spoilers in the thread, spoilered or not.
Spoilers are defined as "things that haven't been shown in a video in any way, shape, or form". Speculation doesn't count as spoilers; speculate away (though I'd prefer it be spoiler tagged). Confirmation or denial of speculation is considered a spoiler.
Seriously. Don't discuss spoilers here. Firstly, we have a thread for that.
Secondly, this game is super
plot focused and I don't want any potential viewer looking for a good story to be ruined by the thread. (The reason why I ask for no spoilered
discussion of future events is is two-fold: 1) it makes the thread a bore to read for a viewer looking to not be spoiled if it's just a shitload of spoiler tags; and 2) if one spoiler tags both speculation and actual spoilers, one could be spoilered by errant clicking on what they thought was a speculation.
Are you going to be picking up all of the thermoses/destroying all the can piles?
No. It's a huge waste of time so fuck that.
Are you going to be picking up all of the
manuscript pages/turning on all of the tvs/finding all of the hidden chests?
Note: this is an example of a spoiler, for illustration for how seriously I interpret "no spoilers allowed" to be.
Respectively: Yes, yes, and hopefully. I have a guide for the first two items, and for the third, I'm going to make all attempts to find all of them during my trial runs.
Also I'm currently doing a Nightmare run as my test, so I'll hopefully be able to show off all of those
pages as a bonus video or something.
Will you be doing all of the DLC?
Hopefully. I haven't played it through yet, but I own the collector's edition of the game so I'm automatically entitled to The Signal for free. It, honestly, depends on whether or not I can download
the DLC for my 360; right now I have only wifi, no wired.
Depends on how many people actually download the source. If a lot of people watch the video that way, and people would be interested in dual audio (the second audio track would be us talking over the cutscenes), then yeah, I'll do it.
god your lp sucks you suck Rent
Yeah, I really
want criticism, so be brutal. I can't improve unless I know what the problems are, so be ruthless.
In that same vein if you really like something
, mention it and I'll make a note of it.
How often will you update, and how long are updates
Every other day, and 20-30 minutes

The first of two dlc packs for Alan Wake, The Signal
was released on July 27, 2010
as a direct sequel to the events of Alan Wake 1. Me and Earwig Squad thought that it'd be a good companion piece to the main LP, so here it is for your enjoyment! The Signal is roughly an hour to a half to two hours long, so this "mini LP" is only gonna be three videos long.

Episode 3: Sexual Eruption Viddler blip direct download
The second of two DLC packs for Alan Wake, released on October 12, 2010,
this is set directly after the events of The Signal
, and finally ties up all the loose ends of Alan Wake 1, whilst simultaneously setting up for a sequel. This DLC pack, which is in my opinion the best of the two and in all honesty better
than the Alan Wake main story, is far less combat-oriented than its sister piece. Come join me and Earwig Squad as we plumb the depths of The Dark Place, won't you?
