Remedy has finally managed to bring back Alan Wake with the release of Alan Wake's American Nightmare, an Xbox Live Arcade title which is easily on par with other triple A games out there. The graphics engine is still pretty impressive, except maybe in daylight sequences. Combat-wise, nothing particularly new under the sun of Arizona, so no need to spend hours learning new techniques. It is however impossible to weaken an enemy without using the batteries of your torchlight now - which makes us wonder if the Southwest of the US only provides poor quality batteries. If you still haven't made up your mind about purchasing the game or not, take a look at our three videos inside.
@BlimBlim: I'd love to check it out, but you guys stream for maybe an hour... ? (18 minutes ago)
Not your standard "Epic" music track, but incredibly well done: [url] (37 minutes ago)
As in, yes getting lancered cross-map isn't fun, but the other thing Gears concentrates on is cover and that is what People Can Fly seemed to have forgotten. Also, heal grenades LOL (44 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Gears after a while just became "active matches" and People Can Fly thought that removing it would solve problems. While it kinda did, it was a 1 step forward 2 steps back kind of thing. (46 minutes ago)
