Alan Wake

Tis the season, to be jolly, tralalalalala! Wait dammit, that’s the wrong song. While I go right my brain with more blunt-force trauma, get your credit card out and check out these horror-themed specials on GoG and Steam.

Steam has plenty of games with slashed throat prices right now, and some of them aren’t even horror titles, which is good news for certain cowards like myself. Here’s a quick glimpse of some of the bargains to be had:

  • Dead Space pack – $10
  • The Darkness 2 – $7.50
  • Deadlight – $3.74
  • Condemned: Criminal Origins – $3.74
  • Serious Sam 3 – $6
  • Rise of the Triad – $7.50
  • Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 – $7.49
  • Sleeping Dogs – $5
  • Alone In The Dark – $5

Meanwhile, Good Ol’ Games is also joining in on the creepy festivities. Here’s a list of some of their DRM-free price slashers:

  • Alan Wake – $7.49
  • I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream – $2.99
  • Clive Barker’s Undying – – $1.79
  • Sanitarium – – $3.99
  • Alone In The Dark 1,2,3 – $2.09
  • The Penumbra Collection – $2.49

Finally, the indie lovers among you can also enjoy the fearful gaming love over at Desura where they are hacking 75% off awesome games every day. These games are on rotation, but at the moment include:

  • Damned – R81.59
  • Anna – R81.59
  • Zafehouse – R54.29
  • Paranormal – R24.62

Those are some damn good prices, on a bunch of games that are still scary years after they were released. Prices so good in fact, that we’re going to buy a bunch of them and force Zoe to play. And then we’re shutting her power off and making spooky sounds around her.

    Alan Wake for the WIN.

    The last True Original Microsoft exclusive that ended an era of shit hot Microsoft game exclusives from 2007-2010 before the the Kinect stole all of the funding. It was fun times but we vote with our wallets.

        The originals? Yes – definitely. 🙂 The remake from around 2008? Not in a month of Sundays! Ruined the franchise, me thinks (hence the lack of Alone in the Dark games since).

            If you like horror titles, you should definitely try it… You’ll be horrified (but not in the way you think). 😉

            Just overall a shoddy game… Clunky, unresponsive, glitchy, non-sensical with some of the plot ‘twists’… And they went with a ‘previously on Alone in the Dark’ method inbetween chapters (like Alan Wake, just WAY worse!). Problem is, this meant that you could, literally from the main menu when you first start up the game, skip to the final boss fight without ever doing any of the other levels inbetween – there was no ‘unlock it first before you can skip to it’ in place… I really didn’t enjoy it… Which makes me sad, coz I loved the Alone in the Dark franchise (the original survivor horror!).

      Tedious at the start, but a lot of fun once you get going. And soul destroying when you die and lose everything. The current addition of the Screecher mod is a nice touch, essentially a revamped Slenderman game.
