Alan Wake shares more details on his American Nightmare

The news train doesn’t stop rolling on Alan Wake’s American Nightmare as Xbox World Magazine had an eight-page feature on the upcoming XBLA game launching sometime in the first quarter of 2012.

The game will have an open-world structure, similar to what the original Alan Wake was going to feel like as you return to locations throughout the story. We also know the game takes place two years after the original where Alan has confined himself to the Dark Place beneath Cauldron Lake. But a new legend arrives where it’s said that after Alan vanished into the woods, he became Mr. Scratch, the antagonist of the game. It’s up to Alan to stop Mr. Scratch before it manifests and kills his wife, Alice. You’ll also learn about the events to some of the other characters via new manuscripts, TVs and radios. The combat has also seen improvement with smarter enemy A.I. that will react to your flashlight movements. But Alan has new weapons like uzis and nailguns in order to take down the enemies. We can’t wait to get our hands on a nailgun for this when it hits digital shelves next year.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD probably won’t have songs from previous soundtracks

So now with the return to form of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, there’s certain wonders as to what the game will be like. One thought was that since it’s a combination of the first 2 THPS games, it’ll have the soundtracks combined of both games. Sadly, according to Dan Amrich on his One of Swords blog, that won’t be the case. The reasons are because song-licensing is a one-time deal and they’re back to the beginning by asking for songs again like in previous years. It’s kind of a bummer we won’t get songs like “Superman” by Goldfinger or “Guerilla Radio” by Rage Against the Machine but maybe there’s a chance we’ll get custom soundtracks. Nobody is certain as “everything is unknown” according to Dan right now but stay tuned for more information on the Hawkman’s return.
