Microsoft has made a demo of FEAR available today, ensuring that you'll not be able to get to sleep tonight due to the resulting nightmares. Thankfully, the demo is short, so you probably won't be frightened into agoraphobia (leave the fear of going outside for the final release of the game in November). This is a good chance for you to get acquainted with the odd control system that seems to take the position of your feet into account and makes running from here to there seem more like hobbling. Still, we're even more excited to get our hands on this one after this all-too-brief taste.
