New Alan Wake trailer is ready for prime time

Remedy has just released this new extended trailer for Alan Wake, showcasing moody locations and gameplay mechanics. Alan Wake may be the first game in a long time to actually, authentically scare us. The extra development time has really paid off; what could have been a rushed, sprawling mess of half-realized ideas looks instead to be a polished experience filled with exciting combat and terrifying situations. Our Excite-o-meter is brimming with anticipation for Alan Wake's May 18 release.

Microsoft has also just announced an Alan Wake gift shop on Cafe Press. In case you just can't live another day without a Mullet Time t-shirt.
