Not forgetting strategy games like Shogun 2 and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II.
Also Civilization V and the soon to arrive Diablo 3 and worth a mention.
Serious Sam 3.
Amnesia - The Dark Descent
Not a graphical one, but certainly one you shouldn't miss (especially as you're interested in Alan Wake), needs a dark room and headphones!!

The important bits seem to be...
And now we have a release date and pricing! Looks like it's going to be out on February 16th on Steam with other DD services to follow. The price is $30 for the normal version and $35 for the limited edition. No word on what's in the latter edition yet. Given the price differences I'd imagine it's a digital version of the content which came with the 360 Limited Edition.
In short? Sold. Gona do my Nightmare playthrough on this version I reckon.
As long as the euro pricing makes sense v's the US I'll be all over this. This is the kind of thin I think I should support.
Well that'll be up to Steam I guess. But do remember, as pointed out in another thread, that the $30 doesn't include taxes so once you do the conversion and factor in the taxes over here you'll be left with a price of ~€27.66.
It'll be a straight $=€ conversion, but €30 is still a decent price. Might even pay the €35 for the limited edition.
Yeah. I'll be kinda disappointed but not perturbed by the €30 price point. I'd still buy it for that price. But once it goes above that I'll be thinking again about getting it until later down the line. Pretty sure that Steam doesn't set the prices, the publishers do hence why $50=€50. But that's a subject for another thread.
Might wait for it to go on sale. Not a bad price though.
So is this out yet?
A little dig at MS hehe
Yup. It's out and the Collector's edition can be gotten off of GreenManGaming for as little as €20.50 i think. I bought mine off of Gamersgate.com which are selling the Collector's edition for €27.99 but since I signed up for an IGM prime trial I bagged myself a further 15% off of purchases on Gamersgate. Cost me €23 (plus earned some blue coins too). Looking forward to getting into it.
You can find the code for the greenmangaming offer in the gaming bargain thread.
I don't do a lot of PC gaming cuz of my stupid laptop spec but am mad to play this, looks like my kinda game. I must run a sys requeirements lab test when i get home.
Is it just me, or is Alan Wake gone from that site now?
Yup, it seems like it. MAybe they were getting TOO much traffic and Steam weren't happy? I jest, but you never know. Thankfully I bought mine off of Gamersgate last night and since it uses Steamworks, it has to be registered with Steam.
