(Are you in) Control? - 27 August

Recommended Posts

Colour me excited for this.  We know that Remedy tends to keep elements from earlier games around in later ones and this gives off a very Quantum Break vibe to me:

I haven't played many Remedy titles but this looked pretty neat. Shifting rooms, slo-mo, transforming guns and telekinesis? It's the Psi-Ops (or Second Sight) homage I never knew I wanted. :P

Psi-Ops with a smattering of SCP mixed in? Sounds great and one of the biggest surprises of E3 for me.

Looks like the Old House is Remedy's take on the deadly maze (like Cube or Alastair Reynolds' Diamond Dogs). It's a cool concept.

Erm, this is pretty much like the advanced Psi-Ops sequel me and K were fantasising about a good ten years ago.

This looks way better than quantum break, hopefully no silly TV show is included (even though I do like a bit of Lance reddick.

Everyone was fantasising about a Psi-Ops sequel after it came out. I still have a Psi-Ops sticker on my PC case which I look at whistfully from time to time. Where is the Psi-Ops HD Remaster we all need and want?

 

This looks good though. Given the title and subject matter it probably owes a lot to Mark Danielewski's House of Leaves; Control is a track of his sister's album Haunted which is very heavily connected to the book. Remedy had a Poe track on the end titles of an Alan Wake chapter and everything.

'We'd like a more gameplay-driven approach in our game'

 

Ok then. LOL, what a fucking depressing statement from a dev.

 

It looks so similair to Quantum Break that its pretty off putting. They've got some way to convince me that this isn't yet another WHOO GRAPHICS game.

Loved the trailer for this. If it's 'just' psy-op powers and bullet-time shooting with an overall emphasis on gameplay then I'll bite for sure!

It looks yet another basic shooter with a load of whoo-whoo going on visually so that you're tricked into thinking it's anything other than that.

So what games are in your non basic shooter category? I was never really sure why QB got the reviews it did as the game play was always on point and super responsive, It was anything but a basic shooter but seemed to get a bad rep when people chose to play it in the style of your basic run and gun cover action. The player had all the tools at their disposal to be quite flashy and flamboyant with the powers and how you approach a scenario and the progression was pretty well spaced.

 

Sure it was a little monotone and the story was Sci fi channel fare but the core of the game was much better and more varied than other games in it's class. But I've always enjoyed Remedy's games and am pretty happy this is what it is.

This seems like a game that desperately needs a demo to sell it to a mainstream audience. I've got a lot of time for Remedy's output so I hope it's good.

 

Also the voiceover guy seems familiar .... ;)

Looking at that list of games I've only played Max Payne & Max Payne 2.

This is looking good on the combat front. I tend to find the narrative side of their games a little hackneyed personally (sorry) but am still very interested. Is it me or is this RTX raytracing stuff not quite the amazing visual leap that it feels like it's being billed as? I mean it's clearly a nice improvement to shadows, reflections and overall lighting but I haven't seen a single one of these flicky on/off example videos that's made me think "Wow, what a staggering leap forward"
