Going for run on sentence? DO NOT SKIP THE ENDING SCENE!!!


I went through, on my 2nd attempt at not dying this episode. Everything went smoothly, killed the boat. The end cut scene started to play, aw hell I thought, skip it. Hit B. Screen goes black to the loading screen...and it just continues to load. Game froze. Xbox dashboard button still works. BUT IT FROZE.


Don't make the same mistake I did...LET THE DANG GAME CUT SCENES PLAY OUT ON THEIR OWN!

This got me on Sunday......

EXACT same thing happened. Although I did not press a bloody thing !!

I think it is a problem with the DLC as I have to re-download 'part' of it everytime I turn it on and want to play it.

I get an error message saying that both DLC are corrupt.......

Xbox nearly went out the window when it screwed me out of it

1st try: Died a lot due to being unfamiliar with the enemy placement in this DLC.
2nd try: Fell off a cliff while walking backwards and shooting my flashlight at the paperbirds.
3rd try: Fired a flare gun at the final boss, then the screen stayed white and my Xbox froze.
4th try: Success.

So in total, it took me about 3 hours for this stupid achievement ~_~ Not looking forward to the other DLC.

I get the same thing every single time i've tried to play either DLC. If the machines been off since I downloaded it, corrupted, delete, have to wait ages for it to install again.
Woe betide you if your internet sucks like mine and it cuts out at any point, delete, reinstall....

I had no issue with the game freezing. I skipped the cut scene and still got the achievement.

I dislike these kind of achievements: they consume a lots of time and if you make just one mistake...well...all your efforts have been for nothing. But at least now I know not to skip any cutscenes...
Hello - what? They're busy? Busy? Look, they're busy and you're dizzy. No, I am not drunk, madam, but you've given me an idea.

There is a solution if your games stuck loading (if you skipped cutscene). I dashboarded and raged a bit before i came back after reading the forums when i booted up the game the achievement popped at the main menu. Not certain if this will still work if your xbox is reset though.

This DLC is bad and hard, but Alan Wake is cool.

This is good to know for when I'm going for this a second time. I don't want to do a perfect run, and then get ass kicked at the end because of a freeze in the loading screen.
