Rein Calls BS on Next-Gen Claims


“I call bullshit on this one. The article said ‘highest-end PCs currently available’ which isn’t even close to true, it’s miles away from true. They are ‘architecturally’ more advanced but performance levels aren’t as good. Maybe that’s what he meant?”

Alan Wake’s Like a Cult Classic


“We’ve moved over two million copies, that’s including PC. So after a slow start it’s turning into something really positive. It’s definitely had legs. I think narrative experiences just have a tendency for that. Alan Wake’s like a cult classic if you like. People who have played and enjoyed the story feel the urge to tell their friends and other gamers out there that they need to try this experience, they need to play it.”
