Alan, Wake Up

Yeah, I fail at titles. [And Blogspot fails at posting - this is the second time I'm writing this :( ]

So it is that time of the year again: E3 2009 is on. Games journos and enthusiasts descend upon LA to pervert developer's carefully scripted conversations, see new trailers and attend lots of parties (the dirty stop-outs).

The first bit of news to catch my attention, being stuck half a world away as I am, is the demonstration of Remedy's Alan Wake on the Microsoft stage.

So we get to see some of the interesting torch-based combat and the pretty lighting effects on show. What we're not getting much of is the story: Stephen-King-a-like Alan Wake moves to a quiet little town where his writings become reality. A little corny, sure, but it'll be interesting to see how it turns out.

[Thanks GameTrailers!]
