[Update] The poll is now closed. Thanks to everyone who participated!
We went a little off the rails...
Hello again! Julian here, joined as always by Patrick and Rob for another episode of Nerds Without Pants. No topic this time...we decided to just wing it with some random discussion. Yes, a hodge podge of talking points brought together to form a pleasant bouquet. Some potpourri, if you will. We can all enjoy a little P O T. And if you got that obscure Laugh In joke, congratulations! I love you.
A newly updated registry lists the XBLA title for Steam.
Alan Wake's American Nightmare will soon be getting a PC release. The newly updated registry list for Steam has the Remedy game included in its database, pretty much confirming the title will be available for the platform at some point in the future.
Submitted for your approval: the story of a man fighting against the darkness.
American Nightmare is a smaller, more action focused entry in the series. The backdrop for Wake’s new tale is far removed from Cauldron Lake in the first game, and instead moves into the desert of Arizona. Wake is on the trail of Mr. Scratch, the darkness-created doppleganger featured in the two DLC episodes for Alan Wake: The Signal and The Writer.
Remedy's game will be released on Steam.
PC gamers will be able to get their hands on what was previously an Xbox 360 exclusive sometime this February. In a forum post, Remedy's community manager revealed that Alan Wake is coming to PC via Steam. The PC version will not use Games for Windows Live and will come with the previously released DLC content, The Signal and The Writer.
The promotion includes Alan Wake's American Nightmare and I Am Alive.
Microsoft is promoting a few Xbox Live Arcade titles with its second annual House Party. A trailer for House Party 2012 has been released on the Xbox Live Marketplace and it shows the titles included in this promotion: Alan Wake's American Nightmare, Warp, Nexuiz, and I Am Alive.
