We also have a pair of spooky new screenshots for your viewing pleasure.

Alan Wake is headed to Xbox 360 in spring 2010. While Remedy "Would love to see" Alan Wake hit PC too, its fate is "Up in the air" and the decision lies in Microsoft's hands.

  • That actually looks really cool. I'd stopped following this game when it seemed to disappear into development limbo after the much earlier quad-core PR with Intel. So I start this video, and it's boring and doesn't seem like a good fit at all for a console game with lots of talking and cut scenes, but then they introduce the action elements and they actually look pretty darn good!

    I suppose my main concern is that they're putting the writing and acting front and center, seemingly before all else, and if those elements are at all sub-par, they could really drag the game down. I'm not yet convinced that Remedy can make a game capable of leaning heavily on its story telling (for me, Max Payne's action was its dominant characteristic by far and made up for any other silliness).
