Alan Wake's American Nightmare gets Tarantinoesque in first Dev Diary

If the makers of Lost or Twin Peaks were to come out with a new series' worth of storyline, released for download-only and far more action-oriented than usual, you'd want to know how this came to be (and probably be quite happy that it did). So Alan Wake, which wears its influences on its sleeve, has some 'splainin to do regarding the shooter-flavored spinoff, American Nightmare. What's the deal, Remedy?

So in short, Remedy is just as prone as anyone else to putting on a grindhouse DVD and yelling at the screen, and it wanted to share that enthusiasm while giving Mr. Wake another outing? Good enough for us. Due on Feb 22, Alan Wake's American Nightmare will run you 1200 MSP and, as you can see, allow you to shoot at least that many enemies...

    I'm not sure how I feel about the game taking a more action-oriented approach to things. I mean, this is pretty much what happened to Resident Evil and while I thought RE4 was a really fun game to play, I kind of missed the slower-paced aspects from the older games. Alan Wake may not have been a great game, but I thought it delivered pretty well in the "psychological thriller" department. Here's hoping Remedy can improve the combat and gunplay without compromising what made the first game memorable.

    That actually looks really good. Maybe I should pick the "first" game up as well.
