The original Crackdown for the Xbox 360 was a fun little open world sci-fi shooter, but it was hardly something that we'd cover around these parts. The upcoming sequel, however, is a completely different kind of beast riddled with zombies, mutants, and more. Oh, happy day!
Anyone who has seen even thirty seconds of Alan Wake (review here) can pick up on the game's primary influence, that being the legendary television series "Twin Peaks". Considering that development studio Remedy is based in Finland, that came as a bit of a surprise. The amount of detail in the world of Bright Falls and its surrounding areas is intense, and it turns out that detail came at quite a bit of cost and effort.
Three more videos showcasing the antics of everyone's favorite psychotic stuffed animal have surfaced to get you geared up for the stuffing ripping event of the year, and we've got every second of it for ya!

The long-awaited Alan Wake finally drops on May 18th for the Xbox 360, but if you want to visit the cursed horror writer's world a little early, there's a great new feature on Xbox Live that you can watch right now for free as long as you have a Gold account.
This weekend if you're a gamer, you have no excuse to not be on your Xbox 360 playing the new DLC for Left 4 Dead 2, "The Passing". Need more incentive? A new promo just hit online that should more than whet your soon to be bloodied whistle -- or at the very least tickle your funny bone!

Gamers, rejoice! Now that the cat is FINALLY out of the bag, gamers across the world collectively cried "FUCK YES!" along with a fist pump of joy (myself included) ... but it's safe to say that no one is as excited as "Cliffy B" himself - Cliff Bleszinski, Design Director at Epic Games.
If you haven't played either Gears of War or Gears of War 2, do yourself a favor. Shut down your PC. If you don't already have an Xbox 360, go and buy one, and then purchase these two titles stat. You'll want to be all caught up story-wise when Gears of War 3 comes home with a vengeance next year. Oh yes, there will be blood. And entrails. And severed limbs. And did we mention blood, entrails, and limbs? Yeah, all that times ten.
