Downloadable-only games have exploded in popularity in the last few years. Gone are the days when retail was the be-all, end-all of video games. Now, some of the coolest, most inventive games are just a few clicks away from being able to play. Still, I can’t help but feel like the grass is greener on the other side of…
Horror games have one simple purpose: scaring you. They’re fueled by long moments of tension which erupt in a brief explosion of fright, before it recedes and the terror sets in again. My favorite horror game ever, 2010’s Alan Wake, does things differently. It throws fright out the window, gives you every gun…

Sometimes I feel like there are two Alan Wakes: There’s the game that actually exists, and the game that lives in our collective memory.
Fans of the original Alan Wake have long wondered why their hunger for creeptacular suspense-filled third-person action game goodness hasn’t been fed with a sequel. This week, they got more of a proper answer. And a new hope.

The next game from the makers of Alan Wake and Max Payne was one of the few games that Microsoft showed at the Xbox One reveal. But details were scant. Now, at today’s E3 press event, Remedy Entertainment’s Sam Lake showed a bigger glimpse of the game.
Sam Lake—you bastard child of Vincent Price and Stephen King—don't you ever change. Even when explaining the massive disappointment that was the distinct lack of Alan Wake 2 at yesterday’s Xbox One reveal, the guy who put words in Max Payne’s mouth still manages to come across as hypnotically charming.
Remedy Entertainment showed off a mind-warping glimpse into their next-game during today's Xbox event and it looks utterly stunning.
In mid-November, Quantic Dream registered the domain singularityps4.com, suggesting a title and system for the second of two games the Parisian developer is said to be developing for Sony. Despite Cage declaring a lack of enthusiasm for the next generation of consoles, it's been evident for a while his company is…
When it released for PC in February 2012, Alan Wake came with no mod tools. Developer Remedy Entertainment said tools wouldn't be released because of their complexity, and their dependence on third-party tools which would presumably require permissions or licenses.

Comedy crew Mega64 are at their best when they're out in the wild harassing innocent bystanders with obscure video game jokes, so... yeah, this take on Remedy's Alan Wake is Mega64 at their best.

Part of Panel Discussion's mission is to look at the ways and places where comics and video games intersect and here in Crossover, we'll be talking to game creators about the comics stories and creators who've shaped their sensibilities.
In our first installment, we hear from Remedy Entertainment's Mikki Rautalahti,…
After extending a collector's edition launch on Steam by a week, Remedy Entertainment has found a publisher for the boxed edition of its Alan Wake release for the PC.
Going into Alan Wake's American Nightmare, I'd worried that I hadn't played the DLC that followed the 2010 game that introduced Remedy's literary action hero. I loved the long-brewing Xbox 360 exclusive but, after months of never being able to slot in The Signal and The Writer add-ons, I'd decided to skip them after…
