I'm so conflicted on this game. If it wasn't for the name Remedy it wouldn't be on my radar... but Alan Wake is one of my favorite games of all time.

Worth noting that only the PS4 deluxe edition includes the season pass... very strange.

Great OT! :messenger_beermugs: I was not planning on getting this, but I am now. So many good looking games coming now, so few free hours to play

Really looking forward to this.

Haven't picked it up yet, so will likely wait for reviews. But hoping for a solid, enjoyable adventure.

I have to be that guy. I mean it looks pretty and the strangeness of it could draw me in but they need to sell it to me. What am I even looking at? You toss shit and pew pew then shit dies.

Thanks for the OT, man. Curious how this thing will turn out (I liked Alan Wake but wasn’t a fan of Quantum Break aside from the gun play).

I really hope it’s great.

First Remedy game since Max Payne 1 that I don't get day one. Looks okay, but Quantum Break was super disappointing and I'm not cool with the Epic Game Store shenanigans. Hope it does well, will pick it up much much later down the road.

Gimme Alan Wake 2 please. I'll buy that.

The first remedy game I skip in my adult life. I don’t know why they chose to to exclusive DLC, but they lost one sale because of it.

Day one for me also since it looks like a spiritual successor to PSI OPS THE MINDGATE CONSPIRACY. Since there will never be a part 2 to that game, the gameplay of CONTROL will scratch that itch.
psi-ops was the shit back in time, i hope control can satisfy my telekinetic hunger lika that game...

When is the game releasing on PC?
27.08.19 Epic store
27.08.20 on other storefronts

I'm thinking a lot of the gifs are just basic throwing we've seen. I think the real gameplay is going to be in the synergising of skills. I mean ultimately it's a ranged weapon and throwing environment objects. Swap it for a laser and a robe and you have a jedi minus a light saber. It remains to be seen how well it pulls this off, but I don't think the gameplay has been representative of how we will play it when you look at sections like this (same vid, timestamped):

I know what you mean this type of game needs a strong story and a real sense of location. It looks strange and weird but also nonsensical.

If it's just a load of random tripy rooms without much story/great characters it won't be as exciting for me.

I'm waiting on reviews because it's so hard to weigh it all up. From a marketing standpoint that's not ideal.

This game is legit one of the most unique games I've seen in awhile. Everything, from the premise, to the mechanics, to the muted presentation is really intriguing. 3D Metroidvania? Could this game be the chosen one? :lollipop_smiling_hearts:

There was a show called 'The Lost Room' that played with these ideas, and I loved that show.

Just screams of a dev saying "Hey, I've come up with a pretty cool mechanic. Let's slap a thin as paper plot/characters around it and call it a game". Hope I'm wrong. Will await proper reviews.

I'm curious enough to pick this up at launch. The Oldest House and its shifting labyrinthine walls remind me of House of Leaves. That and the Lovecraftian intelligence from outside our reality, that kind of crap is right in my wheelhouse.
Throw in the Psi-Ops style telekinetic shit and a Metroidvania style environment and it sounds even better.
Any hope at all for the pro version to run at 60fps?

Did anyone else get this for PC but bought the key off of humblebundle instead of buying directly through EGS? I did and I'm curious how it works since it didn't give me my key right away.

Really looking forward to this. Bought the digital deluxe version on PS4 Pro. Any idea on when preload begins?

Should get the game by next Thursday/Friday via GameFly. Looking forward to it. Hoping that I like it better than Quantum Break.

25th I think.

The only thing I'm not completely sold on is the gun. It looks slow and I'm not really a fan of charging up shots. However, in some vids you can see maybe some mods have added enhancements like rpm, and automatic features so 🤞

The gun is like a bunch of types of guns in one. The charge shot is just one of them. It’s not like it’s the only way the gun fires.

Apparently there's no 1X enhancements either. Some people got their physical copies and it doesn't mention it's 1X enhanced plus after the day one 5GB patch, nothing. I guess when you compare it to QB after it got enhanced its night and day.
I don't know....

Don't know why i can't Copy/past the tweet so here the screen

I have my preorder since end of July and already preloaded too. The store doesn’t want to charge me yet so I’m afraid on launch day the game will tell me I don’t own it or something

Contacted Xbox support for them to cancel my preorder so I do it again. I’ll wait and see what they’ll have for me

CohhCarnage is streaming Control now on I think a sponsored stream. Spoilers aplenty but I checked it out for a bit to see more of the game play and premise -

Will be spoilers as he is streaming the full game with no restrictions-
