@R4gn4r0k: I know more than you apparently. My guess is you're just a Remedy fanboy upset by what I said. We'll see how the game turns out soon, bud.

Just seemed like something nonsensical to say, but ok. We'll see soon.

It looks like your typical remedy game I still have quantum break in my backlog so will get this down the line.

I don't know about hype, but it seems like everyone that plays it seems to enjoy it. Cool story, tight controls, variety of controls, likable characters. Kind of has that turn-of-the-tech era vibe to it, low-fi sci-fi. Seems to channel the architecture of Cold War era buildings like the Hoover building, big blocky concrete structures morphing into sick twisted psychedelic versions of themselves.

It is on my radar, but I am not hyping it after Quantum Break.

Still, it looks pretty cool, and I like what I've heard of the plot.

Quantum Break was not as bad as people made it out to be, it just tried too hard...if that makes any sense. We didn't need famous actors and a TV series to go with it, I think the game suffered as a result.

It lost Steam so it's dead to me for now.

Did it? That's too bad, same. Tencent-Epic Game Store?

@NathanDrakeSwag said:

Can't believe some lems used to call them Microsoft's Naughty Dog lol.

Nobody said that until you just did.

Does Control actually look like a bad game to you?

It objectively looks like a pretty good game.

Looking forward to it. Day 1. Lems turned their back on remedy. Leave it to playstation gamers to keep Remedy alive.

Normally, I make another thread for Control but it's impressions but this thread is still fresh, so no point in doing that.

I read and seen gameplay already and so far, high impressions for those who are playing the game already due to early reviewers got the copy of the game already. like what I seen so far and cannot wait to play it this Monday night! Will return and pass my judgment.

Watching a review by DreamCastGuy and this game looks and sounds quite good. I do want to pick it up in the near future after I get a number of other games coming out in September. So many games to get in the next month. Sheesh.

@Archangel3371: DreamCastGuy was one of them I seen who likes it as well. Too many games next month is indeed troublesome, but Control manage to be in my hype pick up and hoping to be done with that game before Gears 5 arrives.

Why would anyone be interested in a reskinned Quantum Break with a female protag In an attempt to cash in on the soyboys over at RetardEra because Remedy are "woke" now? They'll be bankrupt this time next year.

And I just wanted an Alan Wake sequel.

Watched some youtuber letsplay and dang this game is actually pretty fun. Dont really like how weak the shooting mechanics is and how it feels but the story is really friggin interesting.

Let's be honest here, they do not really have a good track record to start with.

Alan wake was a total disaster. A openworld game with physics pushing pc tech on dx10 got butchered and boycotted as result towards a xbox exclusive deal.

Quantum break runned terrible, microstutter everywhere, even the most powerful gpu couldn't run the game at a stable 30 fps on PC.

The game was also heavily sponsored by microsoft with there tv show / game idea that never worked out well. So yea incredible lackbusting.

In a day or so wow vanilla comes out, nobody on PC will be playing it so incredible bad launch time.

The twitch footage really looked like a dull game that i saw today. just a shittier alan wake it seemed like.

Will probably buy it in a month or 3 when its 15 bucks.

Also CEO selling his stock doesn't indicate any faith in it.

PC gamers complaining over being Epic timely exclusive is so freaking lol. Glad I'm one of the few who doesn't give a damn about the launcher wars, I'm a gamer, I go where the games are and Control being in Epic store is no different. But of course, if it's a game I really want to play that badly, then I got no choice but to go that place and get it. That's just the way I am.

Will give out my impressions on the PC version later on.

I disagree it's the one of the worst launchers out there even worst then Origin and Uplay. Their account security is a freaking joke people get their accounts hacked more then once I do not trust Epic store there is good reason to not use it. It's like playing Russian roulette with your credit card good luck man hope you don't get your account hacked it's just not worth the risk for me.

Don't get me wrong, I do agree it is the WORST launcher around but I only put up with Epic if it's a game I wanna play day one and not wait until it comes to every launcher such as Steam. Their are games I'll wait a year later such as Borderlands 3 but Control, I wanna play it day one is an example.

So far, I only have just 3 games in my Epic library, both Fortnite & Metro Exodus I got for free and Control was the first time I use my card to purchase it. (And hopefully the last if I can say that)

Edit: Steam was also hated when it first launch and got better over time, Epic is repeating what Steam did.

I'd be totally fine with that, with being patient, if they didn't try this exclusive bullshit. That's just rich uncle Tencent-Moneybags trying to take the easy way to success.

With that said, I have caved haha; I bought Satisfactory a month ago, and have no bought Control.

I'm treating the Tencent-Epic Game Store as an indulgence, it will not be my main source of gaming unless it is better than Steam or GoG (or Uplay or Origin, for that matter).

Have you played WoW Classic yet?

There's a reason the formula has changed and not gone back; because grinding sucks. People call it catering to casuals, I call it evolution of gameplay. It might get better when you're not literally waiting in line for a named monster, but until then...

Also not everyone on PC plays WoW. I'd wager most everyone on PC doesn't play WoW.

TL;DR: as someone who was interested in WoW Classic but lost interest, a nice single-player game appeals a lot to me while I wait for the buzz to die down.

Seriously, as far as WoW Classic, it's been there, done that. Don't think I'll damage my nostalgia for this. Fact of the matter is, WoW is old as hell, has bad gameplay, and it didn't aged well either. It came about in an age where we had no standards and were still in awe about playing in a 3D world with other people in a massive multiplayer environment. And anyone that played it must have been a Teenager, that is now an adult. I don't know why anyone want this old grind today? It's fine when you're young, but that's it. I remember what a damn grind it was and have no desire to experience that again. 13 years of my WoW days are long gone.

Already starting to get bored of the building after ninety minutes. It doesn't help that all the combat music is so unexciting.

I like the controls, including the accurate running and gunning, but it takes way too long to get all the abilities needed to have fun. This game is so obsessed with modern tutorials that you can't even crouch until thirty minutes in when a specific situation encourages you to.

So i started playing. played for half n hour. part of it is impressive. graphics and lighting are. but PC version imo is horribly optimize. run like crap.

now lets talk about gameplay mechanics. gunplay really suck with bulletsponges enemies. i mean only one gun and its not fun to shoot. and one button meelee also suck. cant believe its same remedy that give us masterpiece like Max payne and one of the best horror game like Alan wake.

It is so dumb that the character rises from crouch whenever shooting.

I like the cool down reload mechanic. No reload button needed.

Still only have a pistol. It's taking way to long to unlock other weapons and abilities. I tried using the dodge feature (Ctrl) after looking at the button mapping two hours ago and still cannot dodge. This is some dreadful progression.

Can we get a western AAA game without audio logs and journals? What a lazy, tedious, unrealistic way to tell a story.

The way game zooms on her face and you hear her inner voice is annoying. I feel as if I am playing a crazy person. Its really jarring.
