The CONTROL Honest Game Trailer.

Gotta admit: I’m seriously considering CONTROL now. I mean, it looks like one of the good ones. The really good ones.

But sixty bucks is sixty bucks. Maybe with the Christmas money.

    I’ve been playing Control since you last spoke of it. You’ll dig it. There are some gameplay minor issues I have with it. (The time penalty for dying is sometimes rather severe. And homing stuff. Ugh.) But I shan’t talk further about it.
    .
    But I will speak of the real life building that allegedly houses the organization in the game. It’s 33 Thomas Street in New York City- the AT&T Long Lines Building. It’s a 29 story but about the same height as a 40 story, concrete, windowless building in a brutalistic style. Residents of New York report that the building casts a dark shadow over the NYC skyline due to its lack of lights at night. It’s jut a black gap in the skyline. It was allegedly built to withstand a nuke and has a self contained water supply and power source. It’s allegedly a cornerstone of the NSA’s surveillance of the NYC area. Or possibly just an telecommunications hub. And none of that real life weirdness matters in the game.

    It is a good game. I have not played it in about a week (got sidetracked) but I enjoyed what I have played so far. Quirky. Atmospheric rather than spooky really.

    And I know I am not the only one who when they heard the voice of the Former director did not want to shake their TV and yell ‘Give me Max Payne 3- a REAL Max Payne 3!’

    But come to think of it, nostrils, ears, and mouth are all quite nifty to have.
    What’s a little trepanation between friends?
