Trying out CONTROL.

Just finished what I guess was the tutorial. CONTROL looks very spooky, which is excellent, but it has two of the besetting video game flaws of this era: save points, and no easy mode. The first annoys me, because I don’t see the point in not designing a game where you can quicksave anywhere you damned well please; and the second makes me roll my eyes, because I’m mostly playing CONTROL for the story anyway. I’m sure that the combat’s gonna be awesome and everything, especially since you can fling stuff around and everything, but I’m almost fifty and I just don’t have those reflexes.

Still, should be fun.

PS: It runs smoothly on my computer, by the way. This is a general observation that I’m apparently echoing: a lot of people were expecting the need for higher-performance PCs. Then again, this one I’m using IS new.


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.


Anybody playing Control?

Because CONTROL‘s gameplay looks like it’s off the hook. That bit with the end with the film projector? That ain’t real easy to do, and that really ain’t easy to do that smoothly. I am now Officially Intrigued.


Judge throws out anti-gun regulations in DC. AGAIN.

How many times does this have to happen?

Seriously: what part of Shall not be infringed was unclear, DC city government?

A federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction saying the District of Columbia’s new concealed carry law is unconstitutional.

The order, issued Monday by Judge Frederick J. Scullin, was the second decision in less than a year declaring the Washington, D.C., gun carry laws to be unconstitutional. In October of 2014, the same judge ruled that the district’s complete ban on gun carry was also in violation of the Constitution.
