Alan Wake Doubles Down on Steam

Posted on May 8, 2012 by Andrew Minott

Survival thriller Alan Wake is currently on Steam’s Midweek Madness deal, priced at $14.99 from its normal $29.99. This includes the game, which is quite good, and a bonus soundtrack, which ranges from moody background music to cheesy hair metal that will make you feel guilty about how many times you’ve listened to it.

What? I’m not listening to it now. Promise.

Also, May 22 was confirmed as the release date for Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, the stand-alone DLC game that, while not a true sequel, exists to “broaden and expand the universe” of the series. Like the original XBLA realease this is priced at $14.99, but if you pre-order it through Steam you will receive 10% off, with an additional 15% off if you own the original Alan Wake. It’s almost like they planned this.


Sony Press Event – My Day With The Games

I had the opportunity to go spend a day at a Sony press event where they were able to show off a bunch of upcoming games coming out for the Playstation 3 and Vita. Beforehand I only knew of a handful of titles that were going to be there, so when I arrived and found twice the amount of TVs I was expecting I have to admit I was pretty excited, especially for a couple of the titles that I will talk about in a bit. I’m going to discuss my time with the games and my initial opinions on everything that I saw.

There’s plenty to discuss so read on…

Cubixx HD Giveaway

Posted on May 8, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

We didn’t celebrate the anniversary of Sony’s founding yesterday (yesterday’s winners were announced by the way), so we’d like to wish a belated happy birthday to Sony. I have no clue about what you should give a multinational corporation for its birthday. So, we’re just going to focus on giving out some games to you all.

First off, we’ll be giving away copies of Cubixx HD for the PS3. The codes for this PSN game may be found in articles on our site, or on twitter. You can find instructions for redeeming the codes here.

If there is a demand for it, we’ve got more codes for Cubixx HD as well as some PSP games that we could give out. Just let us know in the comments.
