7 years I’ve waited for this! Alan Wake was first announced way back in 2005, back when Remedy had only just finished Max Payne 2, but after 5 years in development and the horribly justified cancellation of the PC version, it came out as an Xbox 360 exclusive back in 2010. Now, 2 years later, we can finally experience it at its best.
It was released on Steam on February 16th, and within 48 hours had surpassed the development costs. Yes, PC games are profitable, though only a fool would think otherwise. Stop being dicks about releasing games for us, you big stupid moronic publishers. Anyway, I finally have my own copy on its way to me (I wanted the physical collectors edition which comes with an artbook, soundtrack and a few extra bits and pieces) and should be in my hands on March 2nd. I can’t wait to play through it in all its high-definition glory. It was always meant to be this way!
