    "You are only as good as your last game" must ring in the ears of game developers Remedy Entertainment (Max Payne, Alan Wake) being as that last game was the forgettable Quantum Break - a paid for experiment in TV / Game tie-in. How the mighty have fallen...

    What it did have going for it however, were some very trippy visuals and combat mechanics that seem to have filtered down to their next project "Control"






    Reveal trailer E3:





    Could this be their surprise hit? - this game is flying under the radar atm but hopefully will deliver a solid experience.


    All platforms (afaik)

    Would be nice if they did some mechanics similar to what was found in the first prey game to help with the weirdness. Changing gravity direction, being shrunk or enlarged, Tardis rooms or even entire levels "inside" a cupboard would make it far more interesting than just having shit floating around.

    Hopefully it's not just floating stuff and jumpscares.

    I think it will review well.

    EDIT: probably the same level as Quantum Break or a bit higher since they're not doing the TV show part of the game now.
