Alan Wake 2 has received its first major update. After modest patches so far, patch 1.0.8 (on PC; the numbering on consoles is 1.00.08 for PS5 and for XSX/S) introduces more than 200 individual fixes to the game, albeit Remedy has summarized them for a list of changes published on the game's official website.

Although the developers didn't go into detail on many points, even this condensed list is quite large. In addition to general fixes related to gameplay, interface and graphics (including improved lighting and a bug in character animations that has been fixed) and various language versions:

  1. removed instances of blocked game progress due to dialogue line errors;
  2. improved operation of the auto-aim function in certain situations;
  3. fixed a bug on PCs causing the graphics settings to reset at game startup and the lack of a mouse cursor in the main menu;
  4. resolved issues in various chapters, including Invitation, Casey and Scratch, including glitches that could result in characters falling off the map and a strange bug with the Echo Lobby Hotel (for which, by the way, the developers have apologized to players; although it is uncertain whether the issue has actually been fixed, via Reddit).

He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
