"What's your favourite swear word?" What a great question! very interesting interview, with those non-game-related topics.

Very good interview. You can see that he is a good man, and very expressive person. Seems like a normal and cool guy. Always wanted to "meet" creators of the Max Payen :)

He is awesome. He seems to be one of the most reasonable and nice people in the industry i know (from a consumer point of view. from interviews, stories etc). Other like molyneux are also nice, but nerdy and therefore a bit "crazy" when they talk about games and the things around them. He goes down in my book of cool people as the best guy from finnland :)

seems like a pretty average guy. the kids growing up on xbox360 will look at guys like this as a forefather of gaming. same with peter molyneux and the guy from epic lol... just thought of it while watchin this. thought id share

@power_marks because microsoft doesnt own remedy they just published the game under there name and sony owns god of war and the reason god of war cant be on xbox 360 because like uncharted some games cant be on 360(the 360 cant handle some games)

@ I Hope this game release in pc .......But why people hoping this game release in ps3.....NO MICROSOFT GAME RELEASE IN PS3 and NO SONY GAME RELEASE IN 360........ I want to say if ALAN WAKE release in PS3 then God of war 3 must be in 360.. AND we all know this never be happen :)

I wish we had more game studios like Remedy here in Finland, we have a lot of well educated IT guys here and a few game studios also, but they haven't been able to break through to the international markets yet. We have lots of potential here...

Release for PC? maybe. There is a chance. Release for PS3? unfortunately we all know that most likely not gonna happen. It is like ATT giving rights to sell iphone to verizon yr ago.

@reema sure about that? you know it started as a PC game and they switched it to 360 and canceled the PC version... I mean it's possible but you could be getting info mixed up

Apparently the Alan Wake PC port is already in the works. To be announced any day now. Remember how they said Dead Space 2 for the PC was not gonna happen? :) Can't wait to play this awesome game on my computer at full settings.

Based on his accent I would have thought he was straight-up American. Great interview.

Interesting interview. Haven't seen some of those questions, and they were so nicely open ended. Metal band lol I could totally see that, if he said country, then I would have really lost it.
