Ever find yourself rocking out to Quantum Break's awesome soundtrack? Well, now you can take it wherever you go and feel like your favorite characters at any time. The Quantum Break game makers released a series of free ringtones with their signature sounds so everyone can take the game with them!

Uploaded onto Remedy are nine different options that can be downloaded directly to your Windows or Android phone. 

The songs and tones included are: 

  • Alan Wake
  • Monarch Solutions Theme
  • Monarch Stutter Tech Theme
  • Monarch Tech Gestures 1 and 2 (separately)
  • Quantum Break Theme songs 1, 2, 3 (separately)

Along with these ringtones, there's the option to download "Bridges of Hope" -- a featured, original soundtrack that appears in the recent Quantum Break Tribute. This tribute also features the newest trailer for the game. I would highly recommend checking it out, along with listening to "Bridges of Hope."

How to Download the Ringtones

Follow this link to the web page where these ringtones are featured. The options to download are listed directly next to the sound title. After downloading  you can then select it as a ringtone from your audio settings.

For iPhone users, it works a bit differently. In order to use these downloads on an iPhone you must first download the files onto your computer as M4R files onto iTunes, transfer it from here to your phone and then select the ringtone from your audio/music settings. 

Happy downloading!

Alan Wake The Star of This Week's Humble Weekly Sale Wed, 22 May 2013 14:48:04 -0400 Ashley Shankle

Alan Wake: Collector's Edition and American Nightmare are up for cheap this week via the Humble Weekly Sale. Pay what you want for these two thriller titles and receive bonus content any fan would be happy to get their hands on.

Normally the focus of a sale would be the games included, but the bonus content included in this Humble Sale really goes over the top.

The demos listed are early-development trailers as opposed to playable demos.

As usual with purchasing on the Humble Bundle site, paying at least a dollar more than the average purchase will net you Steam activation keys.

Sam Lake speaking to the fans

The sale page has a video of developer Remedy's creative director Sam Lake addressing the fans, explaining why the team had to move onto the Xbox One title Quantum Break instead of Alan Wake 2. Fans of the series can find a special surprise near the end of the video.

Remedy - My Favorite Game Company Mon, 13 May 2013 04:26:28 -0400 Reilly C.

I was recently asked what my favorite game company was and I honestly did not know how to respond.  I really have never put much thought into what company always has me excited or why.

Because of my own indecisiveness, I decided to write about my top three favorite game companies and why I love them.

3. Ubisoft

I’ve always sort of been a fan of Ubisoft without really knowing it.  Looking at the covers of the games I enjoy, I will usually notice they had their hands in it some part of the development process.

The Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Assassin’s Creed, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the Far Cry series, Rayman, the Splinter Cell series and many more I just can’t think of right now.

I just find them able to find good things and get them out there.  Sure, the company has faults (just end the Assassin’s Creed series already...) but they seem to actually find plenty of great games to put out that I always seem to enjoy.

2. Rockstar

This company has such an eye for detail.  The smallest and most insignificant things make for the best stuff in a video game.  I can’t even begin to tell you how many great .gifs I have seen taken from GTA IV, Max Payne 3, Red Dead Redemption and more all showcasing weird and awesome moments in those games that blew people away. I don’t understand why the below is a list, at least the first part of that list as it’s not really a weird or awesome moment

Max Payne 3, Bully and GTA IV are all games that had small details that gave them such immense charm.

Max in Max Payne 3 had a new model and texture variation for almost every new level to show gradual changes to his character over time.  

If you are standing on a patch of snow in Bully you could just make a snowball or even pick up a frisbee and play catch with an NPC.

GTA IV is so full of freak accidents like a police officer shooting a rocket launchers rocket and this making the rocket change it’s trajectory.

1. Remedy

Probably the one company that stands that much higher than the rest to me is Remedy.  Even though the amount of games they have made can be counted on one hand, the games they have made left an impact.

Alan Wake and the Max Payne series have been really huge to me.  I loved those games for not only having solid and interesting gameplay but they also sported amazingly well written stories to boot.  The characters were flawed and interesting, and even the environments around them seemed to be a character instead of just being a plain backdrop.

If there is one company I am waiting to hear from about their next game, it is Remedy.  This is why they are my number one.
