  • I don’t get why some people make a big deal about games that don’t include Multiplayer these days.
    Some games seem empty without it – usually TPS and FPS. I was dumbfounded with Metro 2033.

    But not every game needs it – Alan Wake seems like a game that can stand on its own merit without the need of multiplayer. The story itself shows off how good it is. The only thing I could justify with multiplayer and Alan Wake is a horde type mode.

    2 players or up to 4 fighting waves of monsters, mix it up with the light and weapons. But still – doesn’t need it!

    But then again, if Portal 2 is coming with multiplayer then anything is possible for games and multiplayer.

  • Makes sense. A.Wake was always a storyline, single-player orientated game. If they had to choose between spending time on integrating a multiplayer component, OR on polishing the main game experience, then I’m glad they went with the latter.

  • Left 4 Dead style multiplayer would be awesome. The fight system is so amazing and fun i would just like to kill endless taking with my friends!!!!!!! No deathmatch crap or anything like that.
