What Are You Playing This Weekend?

It’s safe to say there aren’t many recent top-down racing shooters in our diets these days, especially if do most of your gaming on PC. Remedy’s Death Rally, released back in August, helped improve the situation and if you have yet to indulge in the developer’s vision of brutal automotive combat, now might be the time. Not only is the game free to play this weekend via Steam, it’s also 50% off if you do take the plunge.
While the title for “World’s Most Bizarre Game Trailer” will remain firmly entrenched in Techland’s pool room for this hilarious piece of cinema, Remedy easily has dibs on second place with the above bit of work to promote a remake for the developer’s classic PC title Death Rally.
Sometimes video games do this media ‘convergence’ deal terribly — they splurge their IP on every form of media possible and it makes little to no sense — but a Max Payne comic book? That makes perfect sense. Particularly when the writing is a collaborative work between Sam Lake, who helped write the original Max Payne, and Dan Houser from Rockstar.
Alan Wake, the game, what it was, was a genuine mystery for the longest time. A vague trailer was all we had to go on and the promise of something open and unique. So when the game was finally properly unveiled at E3, I remember feeling mildly let down, having gone years expecting something larger in scope.
The PC version of the 2010 Xbox 360 exclusive Alan Wake has broken even in just two days, said a Remedy producer on the game’s official forums.
In the previous developer diary about Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, the creative triumvirate of the Remedy dev studio said that they’re making this new Xbox Live game with more of an action focus in mind.
The makers of Alan Wake said yesterday that the PC version of the Xbox 360 exclusive will arrive in February. As it is self-published by Remedy, you don’t have to worry about it using the execrable Games For Windows Live: “Games for Windows Live will not be used; we will be fully supporting the Steam platform,” says developer Remedy Entertainment.
Is Remedy working on a brand new AAA title? This new job ad, recently posted on Remedy’s official website, would suggest so.
Yes, you read that right. Alan Wake now has a horde mode, and a rather good one at that. It seems that every game has one these days. However, is this something that Alan Wake fans want?
