Alan Wake's $DLC 'The Writer' Will be the Last


While a date is yet to be finalized for Alan Wake's next piece of $DLC titled 'The Writer', Matias Myllyrinne CEO of Remedy informed us that this next one will conclude things and have some "intense action."

Also, unlike the retail product and the previous DLC where Remedy has been hush-hush about the music included in the game, they've decided to announce the closing song of the fiction will be 'The Darkest Star' by Depeche Mode. It apparently ties in fairly significantly to the fiction.

Anyone feel like analyzing the song and seeing if they can figure out the hooks? I'm honestly looking forward to the story elements as opposed to the action ones. Gotta see how this thing wraps up.

I hope it's a little easier than The Signal.

I just got this game today (CE from Amazon was $39.99 the other day) and I'm looking forward to playing it soon. Knowing almost nothing about the game, I like the song choice. DM are still a great band and don't get the exposure they did 20 years ago. I'm glad they didn't choose a song from Sounds of the Universe though since it would probably damage the speakers in my TV.

I think the number of posts in this thread is indicative of the success of this title.

I thought the game and the first DLC were excellent. Regarding song choices, Nick Cave's Up Jumped the Devil was my favorite pick.

I thought that it was a great game. I haven't played the first DLC yet (busy with Reach and Red Dead), but definitely will pick this one up. My fiance is too scared to continue playing. LOL

It all depends on how you measure success. Remedy set out to make a psychological thriller and have managed to create a game that is too creepy to play. As far as execution goes they were brilliant.

I think the game just was launched at the wrong time. MS tried to beat the fall rush, but wound up dead in the middle of Red Dead Redemption's sights. If they do a promotional spot in October, they may get the Halloween crowd, but the game will probably shine when it goes episodic.

It is rumored that the sequel will come to XB720.

Eh, dude likes the game and wants to talk about it. Nothing wrong with that. Looks like he even made an account just to post.


I still haven't been able to get through more than about an hour of the game, I just don't find the combat or story compelling at all. I think the thing that killed it for me was the massive, years long lead up to the game.

I was pretty bummed by what we got... maybe I should give it another shot without those old expectations in the way.
