Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas for Remedy Fans

For those still looking for last minute Christmas presents, or perhaps interested in treating yourself after a tiring year, I've put together a quick list of Max Payne, Alan Wake and Quantum Break gifts. A lot of really interesting products were announced and released this year allowing for great variety in the choices, and creating the perfect item no matter what kind of person you're buying for.

So let's get to it!


Instant Delivery Ideas

Death Rally [Steam]
Buying for a retro gamer? Both Death Rally (1996) and Death Rally (Remastered 2011/12) are now available on Steam. At present there's the Steam's Winter Sale providing huge discounts on a large number of titles, including the remastered edition.

Genre: Action, Racing Game.

Max Payne Classic Bundle [Steam]
This bundle contains the first two adventures in the Max Payne series, developed by Remedy. The games are also available individually but buying them both together provides a better price per game. This gift also comes with a side benefit of schadenfreude, that no matter what kind of Christmas-related arguments you will get involved in this year, Max will be having a slightly rougher experience.

Genre: Action/Adventure, Combat-heavy, Film-Noire, Dectective.

Alan Wake Franchise [Steam]
Yay, Alan Wake! If you're thinking about purchasing Alan Wake for a friend, I cannot recommend it enough, it's definitely one of my favourite titles. Buying the original game on Steam also unlocks bonus content which includes two comics, screenplays, behind the scenes photos and more. Like with the Max Payne bundle, you can buy the games separately but the franchise bundle has a better price per game.

Genre: Action/Adventure, Suspense with Horror Elements, Story Heavy.

Alan Wake Novel [Kindle / Amazon US]
Written by Rick Burroughs, the Alan Wake novelisation is a direct adaptation of the game, but the adventure is also expanded upon with new details and scenes. A great accompaniment for Alan Wake fans travelling this holiday season. Available (at time of writing) for $8.42. With Amazon US, you can send Kindle books as gifts to other users with an Amazon US account.

Quantum Break [Steam]
If you have a friend who has yet to play Quantum Break, you may want to give them Remedy's latest adventure as a gift this holiday season. (Just make sure that their PC can run the game before you buy!) The game is split into two parts; action-packed gameplay and a live action show, making for a unique experience.

Genre: Time Travel, Science Fiction, Action/Adventure

Treats for a Little Later

Quantum Break "Project Promenade" Hoodie

Quantum Break "Project Promenade" Hoodie
This is a personal favourite of mine; I'm actually wearing it while I write this article! The hoodie is a light grey with a very bright white and red pattern. The design feels like it will stick around for a long time to come with the pattern printed in a thick rich waxy-feeling ink. The item is warm with a large (but adjustable) hood, and two pockets. Down the right arm reads "Riverport" in large red letters. On the front left side is the Riverport University shield reading "Unus Duo Intro Ire Exire" with "Physics Dept." underneath. Across the width of the back is the Project Promenade logo. It's a little expensive at $49.95 but very worth it in my opinion. 

Click HERE to view the hoodie on the Quantum Break Store.

[Quick Warning: Some of the "Print on Demand" t-shirts aren't actually available even though they say they are available on the store. I had a order lasting over 85-days and five email conversation about my Riverport University t-shirt. The issue ended with the company providing a refund as it was discontinued suddenly after I paid.]


Quantum Break Vinyl [Limited Edition]
This year, iam8bit announced and released a special 180-gram Quantum Break vinyl. The vinyl contains 13 tracks from the game, composed by Petri Alanko, within a custom slipcase designed by Christina Mrozik. If you can't listen to the vinyl, the album also comes with a code to obtain a digital version of the soundtrack. The vinyl has run out on the UK/EU store but it's still available through the US site. The price of the vinyl is $28.00.
