(Relaxnews) – The Cold War army arranging of Wargame: European Escalation and a PC version of Xbox 360 title Alan Wake fare well, while Skyrim falls from the Steam Network’s top five during the week ending Monday, February 27.

Wargame: European Escalation is the next game from the French studio behind PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 strategy affair R.U.S.E.

The sequel of sorts retains R.U.S.E.‘s impressive zoom-in zoom-out graphical wizardry but ditches console platforms in order to focus solely on the PC player, a tactic that appears to be paying dividends as Wargame: EE nets second place on Steam and fifth on Green Man Gaming.

Alan Wake made its May 2010 retail debut as an Xbox 360 exclusive, having originally been heading for both the 360 and PC.

Coming up to two years on, the action thriller at last finds the light of day on PC. Creator Remedy Entertainment claims that sale revenue exceeded the conversion’s development costs within just two days.

Fifteen weeks on from its initial release, Skyrim drops out of the Steam top five, thanks in part to the two previously mentioned titles. That said, it retains third place on GameFly and is held off GameStop’s Impulse number one only by the Zuma-style StoneLoops, a free in-store promotion.
