Just read a preview on the game and I gotta say: it's starting to look like a first day purchase for me. :D We'll see as it gets closer to release.

Anyways anybody looking for a new horror game should definitely keep this one on their radar as, I dare say, I think Atari actually has a decent game on their hands. :)

Alone in the Dark isn't survival horror like we've seen in Silent Hill and Resident Evil. No, it's also about platforming. It's about puzzle solving, first person shooting ... and even driving. Alone in the Dark really is a great season of 24, albeit one with a supernatural twist.

The platforming, puzzle solving, and first person shooting (I thought it was 3rd person over-the-shoulder view :confused: ) sound cool. The driving MIGHT be cool, as long as there's no stupid GTA fluff missions. Driving to different destinations or chasing after monsters would be cool, but anything else would be weak.

Comparing this to 24 is putting alot of pressure on the game to deliver non-stop high octane action, but from the vids I've seen, it doesn't do that at all.

BTW, this is a 360 exclusive but I have a feeling it will be coming to the PS3 also. :lol:

It's multi format, there is also a completely different version of the game heading for the Wii (also being ported to the PS2)

Eden Studios are the developers of the HD version I believe, they're a great team so it's got a lot of potential :thumbsup: They are the studio behind titles such as V-Rally franchise and Test Drive Unlimited, so the driving aspect should be spot on.

With Harrison on board I expect Atari to really step up and this game is doing just that. The serialized story is really cool and is an interesting choice which many will appreciate today. I'm going to pick this up on launch too :).

Eden Studios and Infogrames :p :D :thumbsup:

Atari is just a label tbh

It's just a joke since the PS3 version was delayed until later this year, months after the 360 version's release. Timed-exclusives are the new real exclusives.

Another one? Not trying to troll, afterall I'm officially a Wii owner now :thumbsup: , but the Wii needs to be able to stand on its own legs. God knows it's popular enough.

aye, Timed exclusives are going to be the main thing we see this gen simply because it's giving up too many potential sales not to release on other consoles what with what is essentially turning into a 50/50 split between the PS3 and 360 dependant on what part of the world you are in.

Well it's not really a timed exclusive in the way you are probably thinking. There was no money changing hands for this game to be exclusive to one platform or another and, in fact, the 360 and SP3 versions were originally set to be released day and date. However, Eden was having some difficulty with the PS3 version of the game and instead of delaying all of the games just decided to delay the PS3 version...

Its a timed exclusive by default.

I know, I'm just joking around, I know the PS3 version got delayed. You guys take me way too seriously sometimes, I don't even know what the hell I'm talking about half the time I post in here. :lol:

Unfortunately, 360 owners will probably be on Episode 3 before we are on Episode 1, and there will always be some jackass who posts spoilers and ruins the whole game for people who haven't played it yet.

This game sounds really nice, but i'm probably gonna let this one pass. There are already too many games that I have to purchase this year, so i'm gonna have to draw the line at some point. This is gonna be another incredible year for us X360 gamers anyway.
