You remember that crazy writer named Alan Wake, right? That guy who would write about all these crazy horror stories and then one day they started coming to life from his own pages, well he might be making a new appearance very soon.
Remedy, the creator of the Alan Wake series is teasing some new announcements for 2013. How are they doing this? Through the Official Alan Wake Facebook page, “Even greater Remedy news to come in 2013…” If that doesn’t scream (Pun intended) Alan Wake, Remedy stated back in March 2012 that they were hiring for next generation development and later that a new game in the series may be in development before E3 2012.
Alan Wake first hit in May 2010, releasing exclusively on Xbox 360 and then releasing on PC February last year. There was also a spinoff title called Alan Wake: American Nightmare, which was also released February last year on Xbox 360 and PC in May.
Since Alan Wake is Remedy’s biggest IP and all the hints seems to be pointing to Alan Wake, could we finally receive a fully fledged sequel? Keep it tuned to Analog Addiction for more and also check out our PC review of the original game while we wait for more exciting news.

Yes, you’ve read that right. THQ is offering everyone a free copy of Metro 2033!
What’s the catch? That’s the best part: there isn’t any! You just give a like on their facebook page, and the code will be given to you. Mind you, it’s a Steam code, and it’s only for the PC. This feature will only be available until December 16th, so grab your supplies while they last soldier!
For those new to the series, Metro 2033 is a unique first-person shooter video game, with survival horror, and stealth elements. The story takes place in post-apocalyptic Moscow, and you take the role of Artyom, a survivor. Bullets are scares, monsters are ready to kill you at every step of the way, you’ve got no map, only a compass, and in most cases you’re left in the dark… literally. Have fun!
Vlad Pintea wasn’t really interested in the Metro series, but hey! It’s free, so he’s definitely give it a try when he’s got some free time. Long live THQ! You can contact him via e-mail at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, on Skype, My IGN, Steam (all at the same name: vlad94pintea) or Facebook (Vlad Pintea). Have a good day and remember! Stay calm and keep on gaming!
The latest update for the Xbox 360 has been released for an estimated 3 million users almost as a beta test to ensure everything goes smoothly. Supposing everything goes according to plan, it has been suggested that everyone else will receive the update on October 23rd. One change that people who got the update early have noticed is that the Facebook and Twitter apps are no longer available in the App Marketplace.
We are able to speculate that this is because Microsoft would rather Xbox users utilize Internet Explorer on their 360′s to access these pages rather than simply using those apps which take them directly to the services. If you haven’t downloaded the Twitter or Facebook apps on your Xbox 360 and would like to be able to use them after this dashboard update, you should do so before the 23rd. The apps will still work after the update, much like some of the games which have been removed from the Games Marketplace are still playable, but you will not be able to download either of these apps for the first time. Of course, if you have no problem using IE on your Xbox 360 and accessing those services in a somewhat lengthier fashion, then this shouldn’t affect you. If you’re like me and you don’t even have a Twitter account, then it really shouldn’t bother you.

Eric is pretty indifferent about the lack of those apps from the Marketplace, but he still hates that people are unable to buy Joust on the XBLA Marketplace anymore.
