    It's almost like you were SARCASTIC about not doing the Writer. Almost.

    We were very serious about not doing The Writer, but The Writer had other ideas about that. I'm still kind of disappointed that it wasn't The Rider. Alan would probably have to escape the Dark Place with one long jump like some kind of psycho-literary Evel Knievel.

    So when Alan was having those kinky memories in the signal was he getting morning wood?

    So did Zane or Wake start all this business?

    It's left intentionally ambiguous, probably a sequel hook

    Personally I believe Wake to be a whole-part creation of Zane as a safety measure in case the darkness got saucy again

    Cynthia Weaver said she was, but I think she misinterpreted her role; she's just a guide for Wake, not the actual emergency button as it were

    ed: also that's not a spoiler, you don't have to spoiler it

    well, it's not a spoiler any more

    Well okay, no more spoiler tags. I agree that Wake was created by Zane, but I think Weaver, like Rose, was just a normal person who got rewritten. And Barbara Jagger(Baba Yaga gettit?) was rewritten by the Anderson's into a less tempting form.

    Yeah, I agree

    Also I totally didn't notice the Baba Yaga thing

    Also could you clarify what you mean by "rewrittern by the Andersons"?

    See you think of jumping 20 dark-possessed buses, I think of Wake having to fight some sort of government pork added to a bill.

    In case you're wondering why ther wasn't an update yesterday nor an update today, basically my transcoding program (it's the thing that makes files smaller and more manageable at a slight loss of definition) is fucking up the transcode job left and right all day yesterday and today

    Every time o try the transcode job fails in the exact same spot

    So there's two options now

    1) I can try and try in the vague hopes that I get a successful transcode eventually

    Or

    2) I can just upload the untransxoded base video

    The problem with the second option is is that it takes way longer on my end (viddlers uploader is shit and more prone to failure after extended upload times and blips is reliable but slow) but beyond that if you direct download the vids were talking a gig and a half siZe video

    It doesn't help that this vid is about 45 minutes long too

    Might as well upload it without transcode if your transcoder isn't doing shit.

    I'd say it's worth the wait to upload it as is, seeing as your transcoder is being this stupid.

    So Video isn't transcoding

    Nor is it uploading to viddler

    So uh yeah

    ed: so I downloaded a whole new, older, more stable version of mediacoder for the express purpose of trying to transcode this goddamn video right

    Everyone should be eternally grateful to me

    It's almost sad now. It can't be over.

    WHERE'S ALAN WAKE 2 FOR YOU TO LP?

    Actually, seriously I had a dream of playing Alan Wake in my sleep. Except it was different because there was no lake and Wake was trying to release the tormented ghosts of his wife and daughter. And there was a Road Rash sequence on an ascending highway. Weird.

    The thing with that greatest cutscene is the way the doctor's hands move are so FUCKING ANNOYING. I hate how inhuman they look just being all frozen like that as if he has C-3POs joints.

    So I just beat the main game, I'll start the DLC tomorrow, but I have to ask, are any of the huge plot holes explained in the DLC? Like who the fuck is Agent Nightingale was, or the doppelganger that Tom mentions, but when he says his name it fuzzes up so you can't hear it?

    ...sort of.

    ANSWERED? No.

    ADDRESSED? Yes, Alan has the same questions as you.

    The DLC is set in a very different location, so Nightengale doesn't come up. Nightengale has a lot of backstory in the stuff that came with the Limited Edition. The bottom line though is just that he's an FBI guy who seems to be pretty obsessed with Alan and is not exactly acting in the most ethical of ways.

    The supplimental stuff in the Alan Wake Files from the LE just kind of has a little more on his backstory.

    mxmarks you've been following this LP? neat

    And if you want to know at least a little more about the relationship between Alan Wake, Thomas Zane, and Mr. Scratch you kinda have to play the Writer, which is awesome because the Writer is totally baller as hell
