Have You Played… Max Payne 3?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The farther time drifts away from the release of Max Payne 3 [official site] the more I appreciate what Rockstar tried to do with it. I hated the idea when it was announced. “Max in Brazil? BALD?!? WITH A BEARD?!?!?!” I don't think I've ever been…

Quantum Break review

Quantum Break [official site] has finally received a proper PC release via Steam (although sadly only Steam so far), rather than the ridiculous Windows Store. (A store that hides where it installs games on your PC, which isn't something you'll want with a 70GB game!) I've played it through for the very first time this week, and can tell you wot I think of this…

Quantum Break Leaps To Steam At Last

Quantum Break [official site], the latest from Max Payne folk Remedy, was a Windows 10 store exclusive on PC, and thus cruelly sent to die a miserable death. However, it has just been exhumed from its Microsoftian grave, and will receive a Steam release next month. Can the heavily-mo-capped, time-twisting story-shooter possibly live a second life at this stage?

Quantum Break Makes Light Of Piracy

I'm hearing mostly bad things about Rememdy's Quantum Break [official site], not least of which is that the reliably unreliable Windows Store (in many ways the child of Games For Windows Live) is preventing our reviewer from getting into the damn thing. Remedy's approach to pirated copies of the game makes me want to like it, though. Re-using a technique seen in Alan Wake on…

Quantum Break Must Be Online For Live-Action Episodes

Max Payne and Alan Wake folks Remedy have enjoyed making little television shows and cartoons to run in the background of their games, stories which mirror or contrast with what's going on in the main story. With their next shooter, they're taking those cinematic dreams bigger. Quantum Break [official site] features full live-action episodes telling half of the game's story with a cast including actors…

It’s About Time: Quantum Break Coming To PC

Remedy (Max Payne, Alan Wake) have been making gorgeous, violent games about angry-sad men for years now. When they announced their latest, Quantum Break [official site], it was revealed as an Xbox One exclusive. Moments ago, they announced that the time-troubling action game will also be coming to PCs. As long as those PCs are running Windows 10. There's a proper trailer below, along with…

Wake Sale: Alan Wake Now Humbled And Bundled

Do you have between one and infinity dollars? Are you waiting for Alan Wake to be 'bundled' up with the expansion and extra materials, where the costs are distributed between the developers and charity? Those are some very specific conditions you have there. Gaming welcomes you, but if that's your criteria for every game then you might want to relax it a bit. Just buy…

Remedy Renaissance: Death Rally Remake Coming To PC

Oh Remedy, how we missed you during those few years when you just stopped and absolutely didn't make any games on anything ever. Perhaps you traveled to the furthest corners of the world in an attempt to find yourself. Maybe you struggled with a crippling addiction to some illicit substance and became embroiled in an inspirational struggle to reclaim your own life. Maybe I just…

Alan Wake 2 In A Town Called Ordinary?

Remedy man Sam Lake has tweeted: "It's all true. "It will happen again, in another town, a town called Ordinary." It's happening now." This seems to be a tease for a new Alan Wake game, judging by the link he provided with it, which is packed with Wake references. But will it trundle onto PC in a timely fashion this time around? Signs point to…

Alan Wake’s American Nightmare review

It took Alan Wake ages to find his way to PC but his second adventure arrived almost immediately after its XBLA release. At this rate, the planned full-blown sequel will arrive in 2007, long before it surfaces on the Microbox 7.20. But if American Nightmare isn’t a sequel, what is it? An arcade, action-orientated spinoff? An experimental short story? A fever dream? Expect spoilers for…

Good Snooze: Alan Wake’s American Nightmare On PC

Following a lengthy beta test on the Xbox 360, Alan Wake did rather well on PC. So well that the game's so far console-only expansion, American Nightmare, will be snort-waking and grasping for its PC teddy bear soon. I learned this in a dream, where I was running through a forest with a flashlight, looking for my PC. When I found it, in a little…

Alan Wakes Up A Rich Man

Alan Wake might not be an unqualified success as far as survival horror games about narcissistic fiction authors go, but it's a well-intentioned affair that very much did the technical legwork for its recently uncancelled PC version. And it's paid off for Finnish developers Remedy, who report that Alan Wake PC was profitable within 48 hours of release. PC! Profit! Do you hear that, publishers?

Wot I Think: Alan Wake PC

A mere two years after being rather spuriously denied a PC release, the videogame called Alan has skulked, tail between his legs, back over here. Worth the wait? I fitted as many batteries as I could into my Torch Of Truth and investigated. Perhaps the iconic image of Alan Wake: our glowering, scarf-clad hero runs from the dark wilderness that's all around, towards an eerie…

Sleep Talking: Alan Wake Interview

Earlier this week I spoke with Oskari Häkkinen, head of franchise development at Remedy, about the PC release of Alan Wake. We talked about the importance of PC gaming to the Remedy team, drawing inspiration from popular culture and whether Alan's further adventures will be following close behind.

Good Snooze, Everyone! Here’s An Alan Wake PC Trailer

Remedy's sleepy writer sim Alan Wake is out on Steam in a day and a bit, after the lengthiest beta test we've ever experienced. As far as I can tell, it's a perfectly accurate recreation of the life of a writer: just this morning, my breakfast was interrupted when I realised I had been sitting on my foot and that foot was now asleep possessed…

Alan Wake PC Gets Release Date, Pretties

Alan Wake on PC gets a release date. It is the oh my goodness it's only two weeks away. The 16th Feb. And tis being sensibly priced too, for a two year old game, at $30. Developers Remedy have been putting some proper effort into the PC version. Not only has it been souped up with improved graphics, but it'll also support multiple monitors and…

Spooked: Alan Wake Arriving “February”

Remedy's supernatural thriller, Alan Wake, will be arriving in February, they explain on their forums. They also say: "Games for Windows Live will not be used; we will be fully supporting the Steam platform." Just in case you missed that. Other issues of note include the fact that it doesn't (yet) run perfectly on Windows XP, and it won't have mod support. I've posted the…

AdditionAlan: Remedy On Couches, GFWL

A couple of days ago, Remedy confirmed the rumour that Alan Wake would be at last be seeing a PC version. Our man Dan Griddled-octopus managed to coax a few (rather evasive) words on that subject out of Aki Järvilehto, Executive Vice President at Remedy, but before he could escape we sent Dan back with a couple of particularly burning additional questions. Specifically: that infamous…

Alan Wake PC: The First Interview

Our man Dan Griliopoulos was at the Alan Wake PC announcement earlier today, and immediately managed to pin down Aki Järvilehto, Executive Vice President at Remedy for a few questions. And some very, very short answers. Tackled: why now, what'll be different on PC, whether there'll be any new content, whether the new Wake game American Nightmare might come to PC, and whether or not…
