PC download charts: 'Alan Wake Franchise,' PewDiePie and 'Insert Title Here'

A cut-price sale on the "Alan Wake Franchise" and a strong launch from "Wargame: Airland Battle" see the two games lodge themselves atop Steam's PC download chart come Monday, June 3; on Desura, free faux typo "Insert Title Here" becomes Desura's most popular after being posted on the PewDiePie YouTube channel.

The "Alan Wake" titles had been part of a week-long Humble Bundle promotion and, almost as soon as it ended, Steam popped up with a 90%-off sale for those who hadn't snagged it for cheap the first time around.

On GameStop's Impulse service, the massively multiplayer online adventure "Guild Wars 2" leapt back into the top five after a new, free content patch rolled out for paid-up players.

Indie specialist Desura also saw a surge in interest associated with free content -- top YouTube uploader PewDiePie featured the unusual, experimental "Insert Title Here" and its popularity on Desura accordingly skyrocketed.
