Well I'm pressing on with it but by jiminy it's a tedious bloody slog.
Then for fuck's sake don't play American Nightmare.
I will admit I rather liked the original bit of it. I liked the creepy atmosphere, so I was kind of drawn in at the "I know what you did last summer" bit at the start where he runs over that dude.
It's unusual for me to sit and play any game for prolonged periods of time (apart from FO3 and FONV) but I was compelled to play Alan Wake. I was hoping for the happy ending that never came.
The DLC IMO was plain fucking odd. Now don't get me wrong, I'm an incredibly odd person, but I just didn't get it. Showing your torch silly words making them turn into things was about as interesting as watching paint dry. I fought on and completed the DLC, only to be horribly let down by the ending (or lack of it).
I'm not the type to go to one of those "third or half of a movie and pay £15 for a third or half of a movie" and stopped doing so after that Matrix film that was like half a film. I want an ending, I want fucking closure.
So when Alan Wake : American Nightmare came along I was kind of filled with hope, hoping they would do the right thing. Right from the word go I really liked it. It felt like I was actually getting somewhere. Then, when I had spent about four hours playing it it did the thing that I hate the most. Basically the cunts who made it were so fucking short of ideas they make you do it all again.
So, there went about another three hours of tedious ball twitching "should I just fucking turn it off and delete it?" repetitiveness and heavy tedium. After finally battling my way through the same fucking shit, TWICE
I was praying for it all to end. I had seriously had enough now.
So what did they do?MAKE YOU FUCKING DO IT ALL AGAIN FOR A THIRD GOD DAMN FUCKING TIME
I don't know if any one has seen that episode of The Young Ones
but there's a scene in that when Rick basically starts cying because he is so mind numbingly bored.
How I ever got through the monotony I will never understand. I did, though, and after being close to tears I finally finished it and the ending lasted for about twenty seconds.
I will never play another AW game as long as I live.
