Max Payne and Alan Wake will appear in Quantum Break (sort of)

You forget all the little things that go into finishing up a video game - things like Easter Eggs. As Remedy's Holiday message proves, that's what's happening over in Finland right now - Sam Lake and co. have been filming a live-action extra to fit in alongside Quantum Break's "TV" sections. You can see a snippet, and an explanation, below:

There's a little hint of something extra in there. As Sam Lake says (and I will be writing this phonetically, because he has the greatest voice in games, and maybe Europe as a whole):

"Wee arr shooding a lyff-ackchun Eeeester Eck... for Kwantum Prayk. Aym PLAEing Eff Bee Aye special aychent Ahlex Casey and, wit mah pahrtner, wee are lucking for a meesing writer. Sound FAMilierr?"

Honestly, let's just reinvent English so we can all speak like Sam Lake. It would be a better world.

So, essentially, the man who played Max Payne is searching for (probably) Alan Wake. As if that wasn't enough, Ilkka Villi, the face, body, but not voice of Alan Wake pops up for a moment, just to get our Remedy-verse fan-fiction glands a-pumping. A Christmas miracle indeed.

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us!
