We’ve come to it at last. Tomorrow is going to be a big day for gamers out there, what with the release of both Remedy’s Alan Wake and Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption. Although both games look fantastic — and, believe me, I will be acquiring both before too long — I’m grabbing my pom poms to play cheerleader for Alan Wake one final time before everyone can go out and get a copy for themselves.
It’s been nearly half a decade since Alan Wake was first announced, back at E3 2005. For a time, many — myself included — feared the game would be canceled altogether. Tomorrow, after years of being in development and uncertainty as to whether or not it will ever even see the light of day, Alan Wake will finally be released to the public.
It seems that Remedy’s time and money were put to good use, as the game is garnering quite a bit of praise.
I think the game speaks for itself. If you’re a fan of horror, well, all of this is probably pointless — I’m sure you’ll be picking this game up, regardless of what I have to say. But, in the event that I talked a few of you into jumping on the “Wake Wagon”, Alan Wake is available on the Xbox 360 at midnight tonight (in North America). The Limited Collector’s Edition is $79.99, otherwise the Standard Edition can be nabbed for $59.99 MSRP.
