The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

XBox — Alan Wake

I picked up a few games (buy 2, get 1 free) … Assassin’s Creed 2 got the initial nod, but after I couldn’t pick up a box I switched to Alan Wake. Nicely done, clever use of a non-linearity, a distinctive feel. A reasonable mix of shooter and plot, difficulty great, and I think it took ~15 hours to play through. In my mind, that’s close to perfect. I may pay for the downloadable scenarios, but even if not, that was $20 well spent. (The 3rd game was Left For Dead 2, which I play with my son). And I wholeheartedly approve of whoever picked their “end of episode” music.

And a little birdy told me You Don’t Know Jack will be out right around my birthday!
