Max Payne references:
---------------------
* Search the bookshelves in Alan's New York apartment and other
locations. One
  of the books is is "The Things I Want", which is a chapter title from
Max
  Payne 2.
* In Alan's New York Apartment and various other locations throughout the
game,
  examine bookshelves: One of the titles is "The Things I Want" which is
a
  chapter title and monologue sequence from Max Payne 2.
* During the flashback at the start of Episode 2, inside the apartment's
master
  bedroom is a radio which broadcasts a winter storm warning and comments
that
  it is the worst in New York history. This also happened in the original
Max Payne,
  which was set in a blizzard-covered New York.
* Alan Wake's fictional protagonist in his novels, Alex Casey, has many
similarities
  to Max Payne.
* In the Episode 6 flashback, Alan wakes up with a hangover and requires
pain killers
  to stop the pain. The bottle is identical to the one that is used by
Max Payne for
  his pain relief.
* In Episode 4 you meet a burned out game designer. The game designer
rants about
  how they thought it was fun to include "mullets" and "mullet time" in
their game.
  Soon producers wanted "mullet time" in everything. This is a reference
to the
  "Bullet Time" ability both Max Payne games used.
* Two pages of the manuscript found in Episode 2 appear to be from Alan
Wake's
  Novel: The Sudden Stop. The implication of the protagonist's wife and
child
  matches the setup for Max Payne. The reference to painkillers could
also call
  out to the use of painkillers to restore health in Max Payne.


Easy "Creative Space" achievement:
----------------------------------
Go to the area with the airplane. Jump on its wings to reach the lower
level. Drop
from the plane, then go to the left of the furthest wing (towards the
front of the
plane). Once you reach the rock wall, find the slightly hidden hole. Go
through it,
and follow the path along the cliff side to reach a cave with a giant
typewriter
and get the "Creative Space" achievement. After Alan is done speaking, go
on top
of the typewriter to read a paper that reveals more of the storyline.
