Remedy discusses all the ways Control will differ from Quantum Break.
Thankfully.... QB was a half decent game, but those live action sections were complete snoozefests which tried extremely hard to be a compelling sci-fi....
QB was an okay game but now I am hearing how this could be a GaaS game. https://gamedaily.biz/artic...
You gotta admit that "Gaas Control" it's a great name for the game
The reason why it seemed the gameplay and story were boring in QB was because it’s like they wasted time on the live action stuff
Yeah.... I agree. They pretty much half arsed time powers.... With the AAA budget they had, they should have innovated gameplay beyond contextual button prompts and time shield, time dodge etc.... The mechanics were pretty barebones
The live action bits could have been effective if they were good but they were poorly handled. That in itself was a risk but it could have paid off if they were risky with the narrative. Also, the protagonist was so plain and boring. The gameplay was also a big problem. So overly linear with some terrible 'puzzle sections. Gunplay could have been so much more. Control's gameplay looks great; almost like a spiritual successor to Psi Ops which was a great title
I don't care how good the acting is, live action sequences in video games ruins the immersion for me personally.
It completely breaks the immersion for me and gives a cheap/lazy attempt in game design.
Command and Conquer, Wing Commander and Night Trap were awesome! Games need more FMV, old school CD-ROM style!
Phantasmagoria and Gabriel Knight were great as well
Psi ops was freaking great. The telekinesis in control looked awesome, smooth and it had power behind it.
Loved Quantum Break. I'm glad Remedy are dropping the TV show element of their games, It may had worked for Alan Wake, but cutscenes were hard to sit through in QB. Brilliant game though.
I played the PC version of Quantum Break and had no issues. I really enjoyed the game. I thought the narrative was very cool and the time powers allowed for a lot of different strategies. The interspersed tv shows was an interesting experiment and I really didn't mind them. I guess Remedy's games just really suit my tastes. I also loved Alan Wake.
The cutscenes really worked for using the same actors as in the gameplay and made the game seem more 'real', but nothing that the game could had told in conventional cutscenes. I played it on Xbox One and during the cutscenes wondered how much space they were taking up on my HDD.
*applause* quantum break was actually pretty great minus the live action stuff. It was different and I give them credit for trying but it didn’t work.
I liked the live action parts honestly, was fun to sit back and watch for a bit.
Yeah the live action was pretty good. Good actors too.
Agreed. I really don't understand the hate. I enjoyed them and I didn't mind experiencing a fusion between a game and tv series. Years ago my friend and I talked a lot about how in the future it would be cool to experience the same fictional world through a combination of a live action show and a video game. Now, I don't think it was perfectly executed in Quantum Break, but it was something fresh and it would be a pity if we don't see further attempts at the idea.
Me too. I thought it was great as well.
Basically this is what we wanted for Quantum Break.
If Control is a GaaS; I'll ask Microsoft to forgive me because I blamed them for ruin Quantum Break. The lame Soap Opera Live Action was not the only issue I had with the game but it was the most upsetting. And I blamed MS because they were the ones that in those days (not now) only talked about Tv this and Tv that. If this is a GaaS, it was all the way Remedy
Good, don't wanna have to sit through a TV show This is good news!
Sounds like : Quantum Break attempt #2
That's very good. Nice choice!
I actually didn't mind the live action stuff and quite enjoyed the game - even though I knew it was kinda flawed. I actually looked at all the lore books and read all the tapes i found in the game because i was genuinely interested, i haven't been doing that at all in Vampyr tbh for whatever reason. I also thought the live action stuff broke up the gameplay nicely, but yeah, average acting I suppose
Nothing wrong with that Quantum Break was rad with awesome controls
