Remedy have just announced a new 3rd person story-driven action game, Control!



Heavily inspired by brutalism and abstract art, it looks pretty fun.

Full gameplay demo here:



It gives off pretty strong SCP vibes.

    Yeah, I really dig the art and style this game has going on. And the trailer is approaching Death Stranding levels of WTF, which I personally appreciate.

    The telekinesis stuff reminded me of Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy. I really loved that game just because of all the silly shit you could do with your powers.

    Ah, Psi-Ops.

    The thing I remember most about that game is running into a hallway lined with electrical current, encountering a single enemy soldier and swatting him telekineticly into the electric wall without breaking stride. Felt great.

    Also the trainer's giant afro in the flashbacks.

    They're making an SCP foundation game. Haunted 1950's televisions and all. I can 100% get on board with that. 8-)

    Really into the vibe of this new trailer. Many of you will probably recognise the voice of the narrator:

    Gameplay footage from E3:



    The combination of gun-play plus telekinesis in this looks fun. I like the look of the Astral Plane challenge(s) too, you acquire new powers from cursed/haunted objects.
    Is the 'Janitor' speaking Finnish mixed with English? He needs better subtitling for his odd manner of speaking, I think, for people who only speak English.

    Already pre-ordered my digital copy, anyhow. :)

    Remedy bought its Alan Wake publishing rights back from Microsoft!

    Why yes I'd be down to buy some Alan Wake on the PS4 or the Switch, if Remedy so chooses to provide them to us.

    Preloads for the full build are available now (on Xbox), not sure about other platforms.
    The achievement list looks very interesting, with one in particular having shades of a certain encounter from Ocarina of Time. :D

    I haven't actually watched any of the trailers or seen anything about the game since it was shown at E3 2018 I think it was?

    Heard enough people saying it's still looking good so I have it all ordered up.

    Definitely one of the best Summers for games!

    I love the way the Brutalist style of the building and the guns tries to say "We have this under control. Things are within our power to contain and shape how we wish", while the enemy design and the psychadelic-ass rainbow distortion fields say "This is absolutely not something mankind can control."

    You can't write me off like that! You're just a voice, pal! You don't know a DAMN THING ABOUT RACING!!

    I'm really conflicted on which version to buy. I have a super PC, Xbox One X, and PS4 Pro. The PC version is probably the best one to get, graphically, but there is some PS4 exclusive content and that is nagging at me right now.

    Any thoughts?

    Reviews have started to come in and they look pretty positive. This is where I kind of expected it to be, with the main standouts being the story and atmosphere. I'm just glad the actions solid enough to sustain.

    Except that negative review which... okay I know not everyone can like everything, but holy moly is that a bad review.

    I'd really like to play it, but I'm in the 'no' camp for EGS. I might get it on PS4 since that's the only way for me to play in 4k anyway. Probably not on release week though.

    Not entirely sure what my plan is between this and Astral Chain.

    But I guess this one probably isn't too crazy long.

    It’s supposedly 12 to 25 hours, depending on how deep into the side quests you go. That sounds perfect to me.

    I imagine the fact that I am not largely bothered by performance stuff unless it is super bad means this probably isn't a big deal.

    But we shall see tomorrow I guess!

    As much as I would like the PS4 version for the "fullest" content set, I think I'm going to go PC as I have an RTX 2080 Ti and I might as well buy something that uses raytracing.

    Fuck it.

    I had to add my credit card to Paypal and purchase through that. Anyway, ready to play this after work tomorrow. Hopefully I can trigger the download before I heard to work. Otherwise I guess I'll remote in at lunch and trigger the download/install.

    Epic store keeps knocking me back other wise I would have bought it. Tried PayPal didn’t work for me.

    Played the first hour. I love the writing so far. All of these cool redacted documents. I can imagine it would be pretty traumatic to go take a dump and suddenly end up in an extra-dimensional, nightmarish, non-euclidean space.
    Or perhaps rooms only move around when no-one is in them, or watching...

    Unfortunately I need a us credit card for that, on the aus store it still hasn’t shown up. Which is odd cos the release date said the 27th and it’s rhe 27th in Australia right now
