Odd. You'd figure that would be ironed out on a console.

I did factory reset again. Thank goodness all settings saved in cloud, so everything exactly the same. Home games, pins, etc. Just wonder how long this lasts. A month and 10 days not looking so bad with those amazing load times for Control. Would cut so much frustration in waiting. I could play Crysis: Remastered, but Control is controlling me...

Yeah I remember the load times from Bloodborne and how frustrating that was. If Control next gen loads as fast as it does on PC, you'll be happy with it on the Series X.

They compared it was like 1:45 or something to :38 seconds. That alone makes me want to wait...

Watched a Gamespot video with comparisons. 58 seconds on Xbox One X vs 10 seconds on Xbox Series X. I didnt realize the loads were THAT bad, that's craziness.

Rich,

I skipped all the side stuff, including expeditions and the jukebox, until after I beat the game. It's all more fun when souped up.

Ah. Ok. This is only one, I’ll hold off on. Others done or will do. This, I’ll wait. Langston Runaways were a treat. Thx.

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

eeseJ wasn’t too bad. But I swear with all the source I’ve lost I could upgrade and purchase the last gun, Charge. Though I have everything for Charge, I can’t get because I haven’t come across only what I can assume comes later are a certain 2 elements that in 6 missions and sides, I have to come across which seems odd...

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

had my first Alan Wake encounter. well, not so much encounter as read a document with his name saying he told stories that came to truth or something and The Bureau wanted to talk to his agent about writing stuff on The Bureau or something. only 3 main missions left. little sad. hope the DLC bring it back and i can continue a little longer.

they really should think about sequel or something. this is a fun game, that could be improved upon in many ways while remaining to the core of the game play and mods and powers and stuff that make it so much fun. Jesse Fayden, would love if she is main hero again. why not give another female a VG franchise other than Tomb Raider, to lesser degree Metroid?. that would be so cool.

also, had another crash in game today. seems like once a day. i did another factory reset yesterday. is it the game itself? would it do anything if i delete game completely (not save data) and re-download?

this is getting annoying, a game break almost every time i play. luckily i've finished something important right before and i go back to pretty much that last Control Point without losing vital stuff prior to break (it's like it knows and watching me. The Hiss knows..., but what if it happens with last boss or something? that would suck.

should i delete and re-down?

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

I think I’ve decided to wait on finishing Control. The load times are just ridiculous. 1 minute vs. 10 seconds!! It’s one month. As much as I’m loving and addicted, I die a lot on boss fights. Maybe 50+ times on one boss or the other. That’s 50 minutes of waiting! And I only play a few hours per week!! Now, 5 minutes!! Just think how much more playing time I would have. I got to, I just got to. It doesn’t make sense not to.

I’ll just play Crysis: Remastered. That’s not optimized, I don’t think, so I’ll wait. I just hope I still remember all my powers and how mods work.

you still have a lot of game left so not a terrible decision.

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

Yeah, I think so. I do have 4 main, maybe 3 now, I think, then both DLCs. I wouldn’t have even finished by 11/10 or whatever. I’ll just have to do away with the itch and getting another one for Crysis. Which is very possible. I just hope I can carry save to optimized version on Series X and not have to start over.

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

why doesn't the game tell you when you are doing DLC missions?

i had no idea the Fra whatever with light afflicted Hartman has to be killed in part of AWE DLC? all of a sudden it gave me option, i decided to do it. it kicked my ass. looked it up and turns out to be part of DLC that i always wanted to do after main campaign which is when it should due to not enough abilities and powers and such that many DLC will want to utilize.

i decided to go back and think i am back onto main, but i had no idea...

AWE is just a side mission, the other one is an actual continuation of the end game. On the bright side, you can pick up multi-launch which would be fun with how much game you have left.

the Hartman thing is just side mission? whenever i looked it up i couldn't find in regular main game, they were all listed under Control DLC. i abandoned anyway bc it was getting frustrating and hard, so went back to regular missions...

I mean it's a primary mission for AWE, but AWE is itself a side mission. It's basically the Investigation Sector that kicks off with A Dark Place. I think there are 7 associated missions in all.

Yes, that’s all DLC, right? I don’t want to do that until end of main campaign. I did do A Dark Place, but then abandoned. I’m just not sure why it wasn’t alerting me to tell me it was DLC. I went somewhere in investigations and all hell broke loose. 3 Hiss clusters. It was messy. I said, I’m not ready for this, didn’t want to lose all my source and will go back to it after main...

It’s already out. I got it and play it! Maybe you’re talking the patch won’t be out to optimize until next year? You can still buy it and with latest patch, the loading time has been cut in half. 30 seconds instead minute. I know not 8 seconds, but it’s a lot better.
