'Alan Wake': Steam knocks 90% off the price before Remedy game is removed from circulation


Alan Wake is one of those stories that needs games. It was one of my favorite games of 2010 and was the subject of my first Let's Play. Unfortunately, Alan Wake is being sunset from Steam as of May 15 due to the sad reality of music licensing

Starting on May 13, Alan Wake will be at a 90% discount on Steam, including its DLC, American Nightmare. If you somehow missed out on this Remedy gem from the last generation, it's your last chance to get it before it's removed from circulation. 

If you're looking for an updated Alan Wake experience minus the scary monsters and writer-induced ennui, Remedy's latest release, Quantum Break, is currently available for Xbox One and Windows. And while I know that I may never see another Alan Wake game, a girl can dream.
