REVIEWS Read Only Memories Review
The Kickstarter-funded text-based adventure game blows away most AAA titles with smart writing, engaging characters, and more style than you can fit on an NES cartridge.

Windows 10 Review for Dummies

Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Alan Wake Sails Past Two Million Units Sold

Posted on Tuesday, March 13 @ 13:47:58 PST by Jonathan_Leack

When Alan Wake was announced back in 2005, and for several years afterward, it was marketed as a game for PCs and consoles. However, when it finally released five years later the PC version was nowhere to be seen. That isn't the first time that a multi-platform game's PC version has been neglected, but hopefully it's the last now that it's proven itself worthy.

Remedy Entertainment's Oskari Hakkinen has confirmed that Alan Wake has now passed the milestone of two million copies sold. What makes this especially interesting is that the Xbox 360 version only had a total of around 1.2 million sales toward the end of last year. Now, unless several hundred thousand Xbox gamers decided out of nowhere to jump out of their bean bags and go buy a two year old game, the PC version has nearly doubled the sales of the franchise in just one month. For a company that was extremely hesitant to even release a PC version due to a fear of piracy, this comes as nothing less than a monstrous surprise.

Since the PC version of Alan Wake just released four weeks ago, and its pricing is stil in the mid to upper-tier, it's safe to say that the game will have long legs moving forward. More importantly, this could prompt Remedy Entertainment to consider releasing Alan Wake's American Nightmare, a game that is currently Xbox Live exclusive, on PCs. Moreover, PC gaming is far from dead and other development studios should take note.
