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.

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!!

More info in the Updated FAQ...

The important bits seem to be...

Will the DLC Episodes be included in the game?

Both The Signal and The Writer DLCs will be available on Steam and are included in all copies of the game.

What graphical customisations will the player be able to make?

We are still finalising the options, but the players can naturally adjust resolution, run in full screen or windowed and change numerous graphics quality settings such as anti-aliasing, FXAA, shadow quality, draw distance and so on.

The players can also turn off the HUD if they wish. This was a feature many of our fans wanted for Alan Wake Xbox360.

Are you going to release the mod tools for Alan Wake PC?

Unfortunately Remedy is not planning to release the mod tools. The tools are a lot more complex than they were with the Max Payne games, and are based on many 3rd party commercial tools like Autodesk 3d studio max. Additionally they have been integrated to work with our Perforce asset repository and other internal services, and removing and re-implementing these features would be a lot of work.

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.

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.

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.
