A director’s job is never done. In the first expansion DLC: The Foundation, it aims to explore the depths of The Oldest House with the Bureau’s newest Director, Jesse Faden. CONTROL blew me away last year, and became my Game of the Year for 2019; which set high expectations for the expansions to follow, and The Foundation does not disappoint. Remedy’s weird, occult narrative-driven shooter is still very much present and accounted for here. It falls short in a few areas, but continues investing in and inventing bizarre problems for Jesse to solve. CONTROL – The Foundation in a lot of ways feels like the second season of a television show: some of the mystery is gone, but you know the characters, and now there’s a rhythm to it that keeps you interested.
Remedy has always crafted excellent story driven experiences that excel at providing thrilling moments filled with cinematic flair. Their games have always felt rather linear though, yet filled with fantastic action thats become a staple of their titles. Yet, I always thought it would do them well to add some variety and interesting level design to give them just a bit more depth. Does Control take the prior expertise they had and innovate past that? That would be a resounding yes. Control is some of Remedy’s best work to date.
With less than two months away until the highly anticipated launch of Quantum Break, Remedy Entertainment and Microsoft Studios kicked things into high gear with a number of huge announcements about the upcoming cinematic action blockbuster. The most noteworthy? Quantum Break will also be launching on Windows 10 on April 5…and will be available at no additional cost for those who digitally pre-order the game on Xbox One*.
Today, Microsoft Studios announced that the highly-anticipated action-adventure “Quantum Break” will launch in 2016.
Well you could read my review, but…
Gun the engine and load your guns – the classic is back!Remedy’s very first game is now bigger, stronger and more vicious than ever. Make a run for the finish line with a trail of burnt rubber and spent brass behind you… along with the flaming wreckage of any fool dumb enough to get in your way.
This is not a Sunday drive. This is DEATH RALLY.
Death Rally has been back on mobile devices, but the folks at Remedy have taken that and brought it back to the game’s original home, the PC. The original Death Rally released on PC in 1996. I spent many hours playing that game. I eventually picked up the iOS remake from Remedy and enjoyed it – but all along I had wished it were on PC. Now that is finally the case!
Alan Wake, I think every Xbox 360 owner owes it to themselves to play this game, or at least try. The story is solid and really engages you to keep coming back. I liked the way the chapters are laid out like a TV show, it’s genius in that I felt more involved with the story. Speaking of story, it’s a little out there. You’re a famous novelist who takes a trip to quiet little town with his wife. The plan is to relax and get over his writer’s block; well that’s his wife’s plan anyway, Alan just wants to relax.
