  • American's Nightmare: Live Arcade or Game on Demand?

    The reason I ask this and why I think it deserves a separate thread is because, even if the distribution way is the same, there are LOTS of difference between them and if it doesn't directly affect the final product QUALITY it certainly affects the EXPERIENCE.

    Live Arcade:
    2Gb max
    200 Gamerscore points
    Maximum 2 DLC with 25 gamerscore points each (don't know if this one persists)

    Games on Demand:
    No size limit
    1000 Gamerscore points
    No DLC limits but only 750 additional gamerscore points can be added

    Are there any other limitations?

    And I do mean it affects the experience. Achievements are something that really gave Alan Wake a replay value. Unless it's a reaaaaaaaally short game, if you'd split 200 points on a full game, you'd almost reach the 200's when finishing it, which is kinda boring!

    So, Remedy, is the new Alan Wake's American Nightmare an Xbox Live Arcade (like Limbo, Shadow Complex, 'Xplosion Man) or a Game on Demand through Xbox Live, like Crysis, Resident Evil 4, so on?

    I hope this isn't the case though.
    Where did you hear that it was episodic? An game that I know, it was originally planned to be released in episodes, before deciding to releasing it all at once. It was DNMP from what I recall.

    I'd like to ask the RMD peeps that... Do you guys have any plans to release AWAN to PC(Steam and Nordic Games)?

    XBLA for the win. I have 280 arcade games. Awaiting this awesome Alan Wake game!

    Games on Demand is good as well. More achievements!

    Yes, that's a requirement on all XBLA titles.

    Looking forward to this. Will buy it day one and hopefully re-buy it later on for PC (assuming it gets ported).

    One would assume, yes.

    Hell, Dead Rising: Case Zero and Case West had a trial.

    We'll probably create a separate thread for all the AWAN media coverage or something -- but however you do it, I'm sure you'll find links to everything here; if there's something we don't spot, I'm sure the fans will. They're pretty good about that sort of thing. =)
    that would be great. we don't all have time to read all the posts in all the threads

    When it comes down to it, a leaderboard is just a way to track and compare statistics. You could, for example, have a leaderboard for displaying level completion times (speed runs, anyone?). Or anything, really. And it's something that is ridiculously easy to ignore if you're not into it, but please bear in mind we already tracked some statistics in the original Alan Wake (although we didn't use Xbox LIVE's Leaderboard functionality for that), and clearly some people thought it was fun to compare those statistics, despite enjoying a story-driven game -- we've had a couple of threads here on our forum about it.
    good to hear you decide on the features from an entertainment perspective rather than demands from the platform

    ok so maybe you considered it already for the original game at some point? either way i guess i am one of those that never plays the additional modes like this because they usually feel very pointless compared to the campaign, especially if there is no multiplayer. But if i'm among the few i guess its a good feature to have.

    now, some kind of coop mode where you play a fun mini-story, that would have increased the value a lot for me. "alan and barry/sarah hunting in the woods ep 1 - 6"

    You can't say whether or not it's just single player at the moment?

    Either way, I'm fairly pumped for it. But, there's no way it's going to eclipse my excitement for the campaign.
