Alan Wake goes on sale for $4.99 in the Xbox 360 Marketplace
If you haven't had a chance to play the award winning psychological horror game, Alan Wake, from Remedy Entertainment and Microsoft Game Studios - do it now. The terrifying title is currently available for download from the Xbox LIVE marketplace for less than five dollars.
The game features Alan Wake, a best-selling thriller author, who has been suffering from writers block and unable to continue his latest novel. In an attempt to rekindle his mind, he and his wife, Alice, travel to the mountains for a short vacation in a desolate cabin (you already know this sounds like a bad idea). As Alan returns from a night walk in the woods (seriously, dude?), he arrives to find his wife being pulled down into the lake by an unknown force; he runs after her into the lake, only to black out - this is where the horrific adventure begins.
Check out the game trailer above and let us know what you think of the game if you already own it! If the title isn't already in your library you can purchase the game for Xbox 360 by clicking here (opens in new tab).
Enjoy your nightmares...

Even better, Bright Falls is supposed to be here in Washington state. It is an amalgamation of several towns I am very familiar with.
$5 is a great price. I think I'll just take it off the shelf and put it back in the Xbox.
Luigi's Mansion :p
This was truly an underrated game. There is nothing quite like it.
It also has dashboard themes and gamerpics.
I don't know if I will play it since I don't really like horror films.
If you've never seen the awesome, 30-minute long machinima for Alan Wake called "Bright Falls", definitely check it out!
This was the one game I've ever played where my friends would sit in my dark room and watch me fight the forces of darkness each week. We played the game by episodes each week. They absolutely loved it! The first time the possessed tractor is introduced, one of my female friends literally fell off her seat in fright. Awesome!
