    I got the down load factor with my xbox 360 slim. I began downloading it when i stopped it (oops) and it obtained wiped. I re-enter the code but it states invalid. I go to the sport store but it states i need to have to get Alan Wake. How do I get it back?

  • Marcia Hester

    I prefer single player achievements only. I’ve found all of the Alan Wake achievements. Any other games that have this kind of thing?
    P.S.: I have COD4:MW that has all the achievements only to be made for Single Player, Assassin’s Creed 2 and not to forget Bully: Scholarship Edition.

    So I bought the download code for the full Alan wake from eBay. Now I read that the dlc the signal comes free with the full game. However my game is a download (6 gb) and therefore I wanted to know if I can get the signal for free.

    I recently bought a new copy of the Xbox 360 game Alan Wake, and I can’t find the code that is used to download The Signal, downloadable content that was supposedly free with every new copy of the game. Can anybody tell me where their code was, so i may find mine?

    I’ve got an i3 processor running at 2.26GHz and 4 GB of RAM.

    When I start the game I got an error which says: Multi-sample antialiasing not supported by your graphics hardware. Alan Wake requires this in order to run. Please see that your system conforms with the minimum specification and ensure you have the latest graphics card drivers installed.

    I’ve updated drivers of the Intel HD Graphics but I keep getting the same error when I start the game.

    Can you answer please?

    Thank you.

    I was thinking of asking for it for my birthday but since theres no multiplayer I was hoping the story would take a while, so how long is it? how about it’s two add-ons?

  • sick_mick_101

    I just heard about the game and I’m not sure how much time I have left for my Xbox Live account, so I want to know if it’s on disk.

    i recently played the original alan wake and i loved it. i loved the game for the story and not really for the gameplay because the gameplay was just repetitive and walking from point A to point B most of the time.
    how is the story in american nightmare?
    my friend told me that in american nightmare you basically play the same 3 missions 3 times each? is this true?
    can someone explain the level design and if it really is playing the same levels 3 times each??

    thanks!!!

    My boyfriends birthday is coming up and I want to know if this is an entertaining video game. I’ve read reviews online a bit but I would like to know about firsthand accounts… All you guys out there that have played this game, give me the down low! Do you like it? Or did you get bored of the running plot line?

  • uberfailz

  • Franklin Bluth

    On the game Alan Wake in the options can you turn down the volume of the voices of the characters and put captions on the screen instead?

  • cardskid22

    So i’ve been watching so many gameplays of Alan Wake, and i was wondering what is the monster in there?
    So far i’ve heard growling then that’s it

    I have an xbox 360 and Alan Wake looks like a really good game. I have seen some game play. The lighting effects look really good. What are some other reasons to buy the game? Please NO spoilers.

    Its almost midnight where I live, my entire family except me is in bed. I bought Alan Wake recently and its really cool but freaky. I want to play it now but, Its to freaky.

  • Scott Bull

    Just wondering what games anyone has come across with really good looking environments, whether they look realistic or not.

    Such as
    Skyrim
    Alan Wake
    Fable
    Kingdoms of Amalur
    Red Dead Redemption
    Bully

    I’m wanting to choose between buying RDR or Alan Wake. What are the pros and cons of each game to help me decide?

  • Jason

    I prefer single player achievements only. I’ve found all of the Alan Wake achievements. Any other games that have this kind of thing?
    P.S.: I have COD4:MW that has all the achievements only to be made for Single Player, Assassin’s Creed 2 and not to forget Bully: Scholarship Edition.
