I think I just figured out why Jesse keeps rubbing right shoulder on console versions. That’s the one she uses to launch and shoot and abilities. That’s my rationale at least...

I changed my mind and bought it but I won't play it until the Series X version is out. Having said that, I really wish we would get more people talking about this game. Feels like it has gone under the radar by everyone here.

PC version of this very obscure game is now $16 on GMG. You have to log in to see the price.

thinking of checking this game out. Heard it was good and cheap now, somewhere. Anyway, if I have any questions, I know, I know...only a few 100 will I ask.

Re: Control (Remedy) - PC/PS4/XB1 - 8/27/2019

Please tell me there is a more epic ending then after Mission 9?

I know there is another mission, Take Control where I’m back as a desk jockey or something. Stopped there. But, there’s gotta be some kind of epic battle than cleansing the Hedron and reaching Polaris. There were some baddies, but you could just cleanse and move on. I mean I know the credits were fake, but this can’t be it. I didn’t play all this time, while loving it, for seeing Jesse in a religious Far Cry 5 cult pose talking to an other worldly entity.

Please tell me there’s more. Tell me I’ll get some answers. I still have DLC, but it just ended by getting atop Polaris. Definitely abrupt and not at all satisfying.

I would be very disappointed after an incredible game.

Re: Control (Remedy) - PC/PS4/XB1 - 8/27/2019

There just seems like so many unanswered questions especially what the fuck this thing is and well, basically everything. Not gonna do dlc till after main. Foundation and then AWE. Really want the multi-launch ability. Might have enough ability points after mission 9 but there was no control point after Polaris, so I can’t see or do anything. Want to try and get last gun I think I don’t have. Only really used Shatter, Grip and Surge was fucking awesome. Blowing stuff at distance was great. Will there be CP before end?
Anyone play DLCs? Thoughts?

Re: Control (Remedy) - PC/PS4/XB1 - 8/27/2019

Yeah, that was more of an ending i had in mind. not too hard getting to and cleansing Dylan, a lot of baddies thrown at you, but they seemed to go down really fast, but satisfying and knowing i have so much more to do makes me happy. only "Jesse and I" can take Control and by golly WE will...

Try as I might, I just cannot get into this game. Something about the setting/locations makes be bored and uninterested.

Finally my patience has paid off. I almost bought this on Black Friday as its been on my list for a long time. I bought Doom a couple weeks before it landed on game pass (and others before that) and decided Im waiting on all Xbox games going forward. Excited about this.

I can see how that'd happen. I was mixed on it initially but fell for it pretty hard as it progressed, it isn't for everybody.

I was gonna say same thing. Not every game is made for everyone and that’s fine. Even if get great reviews and many love it, you want to try it, see what buzz about, but if you can’t get into it then so be it.

but, unlike Rich, I instantly fell for this game. I mean after first minutes of game and rare does that happen (I thought I’d try it, it’s ok, I’ll come back to sometime, but can def wait). That break I took when waiting for Series X was killing me. I still thought about playing it, but was waiting weeks. But, I did finish Doom: Eternal, so at least that’s something. I don’t think I’ve ever finished so many games in a year. Maybe 1-2 normally, this year, probably 6, maybe more. I just never do that, but I guess this year made it such. Fuck 2020, but good for entertainment.

I can also see the Old House (lots of offices, some nice atriums, but really all just variations and not much groundbreaking environment variety's, a few astral planes and that very limited and narrow Oceanview Hotel) not be seen as too exciting.
Thank god I came back and finished and still more to do. Really fell hard, as some of you may or may not know

I know it wasn’t the total huge hit that I guess the awards would claim. I think metacritic was low 80’s, no?, IGN GotY, or whatever, or am I totally making that up?

Either way, any talk of another?

So everyone is assuming it is the new Ultimate Edition version, and not the older regular version?

I would assume regular version... But MS could have pushed for the UE. Tough to say. The whole point of the UE was to make the base game obsolete. And that could be why it didn't end up getting added last year, despite Spencer saying it would. Could be 505 wanted to make more bank off of the UE before bringing it to GP.

I thought GP usually gets the best, most updated versions, with dlc and all. I would have thought it would be UE or to most, it’d be pretty stupid as to why wouldn’t you want the optimized version since many are getting or have Series X. GP updated to Ultimate and I think most games reflect the best versions out there. I could be snd probably am wrong...

Yeah, it felt complete and I wanted a sequel, which the first DLC kind of provided for.

It scored mid to high 80s and pulled a good number of awards and GOTY nods. Its over a million copies sold but that isn't exactly a massive high water mark. Hopefully they got paid nicely for being an Epic Store exclusive, I know that played into me forgetting it was on PC.

^ Hmm. They don't seem to be using the UE artwork, so it may in fact just be the regular sucker edition. I guess we'll find out in 2 days.
