I had a lot of fun with a bunch of the side missions, too. I'm really looking forward to see what they do with the DLC.

Ive reached the halfway point. Holy hell this game just keeps getting better. One the powers open up the gameplay starts to feel like Infamous. Really good stuff here!

For anyone who has played some of the side quests...

There's one where you have to collect six "pouches" for Arish. This involves fighting off six mini-bosses. It sounds like a lot of people (myself included) are getting a bug where the last enemy never spawns, so you can't get the 6th pouch. There's no official fix yet, as far as I know, but I was able to complete the quest later on, AFTER completing the main story of the game.

So if you can't seem to complete that quest... now you know. Skip it and go back to it WAY later.

Thanks for the heads up.

From another forum... I love when I'm quick enough to grab one of those rockets.

That is awesome. Maxing out your "Launch" skill tree is one of the smartest things to do early.

^ yup! It's especially satisfying when you're able to launch one of the exploding Hisses back at a batch of other enemies.

Remedy has released a roadmap of DLC release dates and a bit of info. Look very closely at the image for the last expansion...

Spoiler because it's a very large image.

^ Awesome! There's hints of that throughout the game, especially if you check out some areas of the Panopticon.

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

I seen clips of the gameplay and it reminds me of Infamous. Is it similar to it?

It may be something that I need to buy when it drops in price.

I'm always looking for potential relatively-new-game bargains to grab on Black Friday. This is my #1 candidate.

I couldn’t get into this. Just too repetitive and confusing. I got the powers and it still sucked.

Yes, the game essentially becomes Infamous meets the X-files with a dash of Twin Peaks. If you liked Infamous you'll love this.

I loved Infamous. Should I give this game a chance? I just got the first key card. That’s how far I am.

I never got around to playing Infamous. I love this game, but I think its weirdness may not be for everybody.
The main story is good, but I think the side missions really add to the overall atmosphere, especially missions related to a flamingo or a fridge.

It's also a game with a LOT of collectibles that amount to memos, journals, audio recordings, etc. If you're not into that stuff, it can be a chore, but in this game, it gives everything more depth.
