    Looks gorgeous as always, from Remedy.

    Agreed on amazingness of Alan Wake. That was some amazing world creation.

    There are some pre-E3 previews out and it's all sounding positive.

    @Ror sweet, gonna need some info when you have had time with it. Namely, if it's a lot better than Quantum Break.

    Remedy Entertainment's upcoming third-person shooter Control has gone gold, according to a developer on the team. Effectively, development on the game has completed and discs are ready for manufacturing and distribution.

    Just downloading a patch (5GB), then I'll start. I'm going to capture ~1 hour, so I'll bung that on YouTube and post it in here when it's up, too.

    Also, doesn't appear to be X-enchanted, which is a shame.

    Well I absolutely adored QB, so you might need to find a different opinion :D

    @Ror can you get a couple screenshots too?

    Yeah, it wasn't showing up in My Games & Apps when sorted by X-enchanted before the patch, but post-patch it does.

    Couple of quick screens I grabbed from where I currently am. Nothing too exciting.





    I have a video of the first hour going up at the moment. I'll post it in case anyone wants to see it but obviously: spoilers.

    So far, I am very much enjoying it. It's very Remedy, but feels darker, weirder than Quantum Break, which is what I was expecting.

    Video up. Might take a bit of time for higher resolutions to come through (though I only captured at 1080p).

    Again, this is the first hour of the game, so don't watch if you want to go in fresh.

    I am absolutely loving this so far. About three hours in or so, plenty of exploring, finding collectibles, fighting bad dudes (combat feels great, especially once you've got a few powers).

    Picked up a couple of sidequests so far, one of which unlocked a new ability, and you can hold up to three challenge missions at a time (equipped at save points). The latter are basically just 'kill x with y ability' or Destiny-style 'kill 50 enemies without dying' challenges that net you some rewards upon completion.

    Well on its way to being in contention for my GOTY, but then I do love Remedy.

    Is there any awkward platforming sections? I donít know why Remedy persist with making them in their games as theyíre always bloody awful. I still have nightmares about the Max Payne blood trail.

    There are some... sort of platforming-lite sections, but they're fine. They don't ask you to make timed jumps or anything (at least so far). It's pretty much "here is a gap. Jump over the gap."

    Without wishing to spoil things, I can see there being scope for some deeper platformy stuff, especially given at least one of the abilities you can unlock. I feel like it would be in optional side content though (as that ability is, technically, missable).

    I liked both Alan Wake and Quantum Break (final boss aside) so this sounds like it'll be a winner for me.

    I got it in the post today with a sexy t shirt I'll wear when I'm doing house work or something. Can't play it for a day ish but it's remedy so it will be excellent.

    I thought this was next weekend, not a Tuesday, after bank holiday so posting out early kinda thing.

    I really may have pulled my finger out then, Iím into this but been steering clear of all recent previews etc.

    Done the first hour and yeah, itís very Remedy.

    Feels very similar to Quantum Break in terms of the tone and visuals (but obviously even nicer looking). The 3rd-person combat is also similar to QB but more refined.

    Definitely an interesting story happening here too.....feels very X-Files/Fringe to me.

    Looking forward to playing more.

    Fantastic, Is there a good feel to it all, the traversal and gunplay. I think this could be just what the doctor ordered.

    I'd say the tone is pretty different, actually. Darker and weirder, as I said above. Quantum Break is more of an action movie, this is more of a thriller, if I was to put it in very simplistic terms.

    The gunplay is typically Remedy, so good. But the abilities help to elevate it, and the world is incredibly reactive, with things blowing up and papers, tables and chunks of masonry flying about as you fight. Very like Quantum Break in that regard.

    Jumping and clambering feels better in this game, but there's also more call for it here, so it needed to be better.
