    If you try it with RTX on... definitely.

    But, with it off, since this was made from day one for PC... I'm more willing to give Remedy a little more faith.

    Hey at least with a RTX 2080 you can just brute force the game to run good.

    Now I'm kinda wondering how my FX 8320 compares to a Ryzen 1300X.... :/

    Even my video card is below minimum xD

    This is my reaction to that comment after trying Quantum Break last week.

    I am guessing it is going to run very good on console.

    Remember, Quantum Break was made from day one as an Xbox One exclusive. Remedy weren't told they could bring it to PC until a few months before the PC announcement.
    They openly said on their forums they were unprepared and simply not ready, as they had built the engine specifically for the Xbone hardware.

    A few people from the studio said if the game had started, from day one, as a PC title... they would've been able to build it with PC hardware in mind.
    And since MS own Quantum Break, Remedy said their hands were completely tied as to what they could do, and how long they could continue support.


    They started life as a PC developer, consider Alan Wake on PC their proudest achievement. And said several times during QB's development they can't wait to return to the PC platform.


    I mean, people keep giving Rockstar chance after chance on PC after years of awful, shoddy PC releases. And then they get it right with Max Payne 3 and GTA5. Remedy has one poor PC release... and suddenly it's "oh, this'll be crap"

    I love Remedy.. I just replayed the Max Payne series (although they didn't do the 3rd one) and a going to replay Alan Wake, then on to Quantum Break before Control. I have quite a bit of time though as I'll be waiting for the Steam/GoG release of the game.

    A lot of people are commenting on the videos and trailers in regards to the Control being slow/boring.. I think Remedy do a really great job of general game pacing and giving you moments of immersion in their world-building and story-telling.. so I don't think that's going to be a problem. Not every game needs to have bombastic action every second.

    Sam Lake has said to him, story and character are just as important, if not more so then the action.

    So, it's not about endless waves of action and set pieces. It's about building a world, strong characters and working the gameplay in around it.
    Sam wasn't a writer on Quantum Break, and it shows. But, he's back as the lead writer on Control.

    Does not look more braindead than QB and that game was fine. As for graphics you must admit it looks good. Im sure it looks even better with rtx.

    Nah.. It's no where close to QB, here in control it's like from some generic Mmorpg characters intercation across the world where all speak static robotic.

    Check those longer play videos again.. so boring.

    My impressions of the vo and visuals so far have been - lifeless sounding vo/conversation plus interiors with reflective surfaces - the game.
    It might actually be interesting, it just doesn't come across as being that from the promo stuff ive seen

    Hmmm.
    In the footage shown, I personally believe the game looks better without the raytracing. Making everything shiny and reflective doesn't make it look good, just looks a bit... meh.

    Thomas Puha of Remedy has said on average, 10 to 15 hours. While a more "thorough" play-through could take up to 20 hours.

    I find this playthrough absolutely terrible. Not because of the game, but that stupid/childish commentary and nonstop giggling totally ruin the atmosphere of the game. They comment it as if they were playing some kind of Mario Kart game or something.
