Video Game Theater – Bright Falls: Episode 3 (Lights Out)

The Bright Falls miniseries started as a promotional prequel to the highly anticipated Xbox 360 exclusive, Alan Wake, but I feel like the live-action series needs to work on two levels. First, it needs to be appealing to those people who want to play the game without revealing too much about its plot. And second, it needs to convince all those people who aren’t sure if the game is for them or not. Ultimately, I feel like Bright Falls is a solid addition to the Alan Wake franchise.

On a more personal level, what I like the most about Bright Falls is that it builds up a very eerie atmosphere without resorting to cheap jump scares. But now I feel like I need to get a new computer so I can actually play Alan Wake…

Finally, if you haven’t seen the first two episodes, I highly recommend catching up with the series. Find episodes one and two right here on the site:
