Anything Alan Wake interests me. With the release of the short video clip series I got excited about Bright Falls more so (surprisingly) than I was before. When anyone mentions this game, I get all giddy, hoping I will get to experience the next generation’s installment into the survival horror genre. So you can imagine how my ears perked up (all my eyes, depending on how you look at it) when I heard about the game add on’s and pre-order bonuses were finally announced! Without skipping a beat, I pulled my mouse over to the link, and this is what I found:
For those who can’t wait to unravel the mystery in “Alan Wake,” secure your Bright Falls Bonus Pack by pre-ordering the game now from participating retailers. A must-have for anyone intrigued by the game, the pack includes Avatar gear like the “I Am Awake” T-shirt and an Xbox LIVE “Bright Falls” theme based on the game. For “Alan Wake”’s most devoted fans, the Limited Collector’s Edition is designed to resemble a hardcover novel and packed with special bonus content, and is the perfect addition to your bookshelf.
YES! New Avatar gea..r…. and… an Xbox theme? Really? You market a fully blown TV production mini series for free and the preorder bonus that should top that is an Xbox360 theme and a virtual T shirt I can put on my little virtual man inside my Xbox? Really Microsoft? That the best you got?
I will be waiting for the real pre-order bonus announcement. You know, the one that will actually include information and bonus content for the game.
