Remedy discusses Mr. Scratch in new Alan Wake dev diary

In this latest developer diary for Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, the gang at Remedy describe the origins of Alan Wake’s evil alter-ego, Mr. Scratch. Born out of the legend of Alan Wake’s arrival and subsequent disappearance in Bright Falls, he’s a straight-up boogeyman with a sense of humor I can appreciate.

Remedy also talks up the game’s arcade mode, which I had a chance to check out at CES. With only one more week left until release, my excitement level has pretty much peaked now. Bring it.
