    You're getting used to it after a minute. But debating personal taste is useless.

    If Remedy had done another linear popamole Max Payne/Quantum Break, I think they'd shot themselves into irrelevancy. The good world building of The House saved their reputation.

    You can't have good looking wahmen in 2019, because average people might get offended.

    I get that some people like the cleaner look of having no effects like that, but I'm definitely not one of them. Especially when the game was as designed around them as this one is. I flirted with turning off global reflections because they're so grainy, but it really made the game look weird and not correct. Areas I was supposed to see were pitch black, and the mystical realm or whatever they call it had flat black platforms instead of glowing marble ones. But if you like it I'm happy for you, everyone's different.

    He means that it's Epic Games Store only. Honestly I'd just pirate, play it now and buy it on sale on Steam when it comes out. I don't buy full price games anyway.

    The protagonist was inspired by figures such as CIA director Allen Dulles and FBI director Edgar Hoover, who both had strong jawlines.

    It's not a very feminine quality, but it makes sense given her status as FBC director.

    Patch is out. Nice performance bump on high settings for me, getting over 60fps pretty much all the time now at 1440p with a 2070. Was getting 50-55 in some areas before. Also the motion blur off option seems to remove more of it than the hex edit did, so that's cool. Though the game still has a somewhat blurry look anyway, I think because of the lighting effects.

    The game already references Alan Wake, they take place in the same universe. So makes sense. I doubt I go back to the game in 2020 though, maybe further down the line in a replay.

    It's on PC, but to play it you need to go to the desktop and click on a free .exe that isn't Steam.

    I don't think that Control will do something to bring them out of irrelevancy. Quantum Break is no worse than Alan Wake or Control, and all of their games are absolutely brilliant, the best the genre can offer. The only reason they are kinda irrelevant is shit popamole tastes of majority of gamers.

    "Downloadable content" is a retarded term for such things in 2019, I hope expansion makes a return.

    Me too, but it would actually have to be expansions in that case.

    Fuck no, even a 2080ti can't run the game at 1080p with RTX on without frame drops below 60. You pretty much have to enable DLSS and upscale from a low res to use RTX. Not worth it IMO.

    I will admit DLSS works better here than it ever did before, but it still looks like total garbage compared to native resolution.

    Man, this game almost flew under my radar. I remember seeing a trailer for it during E3 or Gamescom and didn't think much of it since Quantum Break was forgettable. I pretty much only picked it up to flex my new hardware for the first time and I'm glad I did. Sleeper hit of the year for me. The presentation and atmosphere is insane. Even little things like the Dark Souls'esque area name pop-up hit just right.
    I get low 30s with everything on max, including RTX with my 2080 at 1440p. Medium RTX bounces me up to high 40s to mid 50s and the visual difference is barely noticeable. That's still pre patch mind you. Didn't even know they released a new patch and haven't played since I finished the game a few days ago.
