It is absolutely insane. As much as I dislike Trump, a part of me hopes he wins in 2020 so we don't have to face him losing and refusing to step down. Just writing that feels over-the-top but at the same time this impossible scenario seems to feel more and more plausible.

Ha! So he did lose and refuse to step down.

I came here looking for a discussion on this.  I had heard about this on the Giant Bomb podcast and was intrigued but heard the PS4 performance was terrible (I did, however, have my eye on it for a holiday PC sale - I missed your earlier posts about the Epic Game Store deals).   But I just saw that Ultimate Edition is on sale in the Playstation store and there's a free upgrade to the PS5 enhanced version when it's out next year so I wanted to get your takes on it.  Sold!

Going to get it and throw it in the backlog until the upgrade comes out as it seems that might be the real experience to have with all the physics effects but I definitely appreciate the review and discussion here.

I have recently picked this back up and am working my way through the first expansion, The Foundation. It is more of the same game -- there is some additional lore/story to be told and you do get some new abilities, but it is very much the same game, which is a good thing. I am enjoying it and should be about 75-80% done the expansion, and will be moving on to the second expansion probably in the next week or two.

After 21h 37m 34s in total here, all according to Epic Game Store's tracking and all, Control (base-game) is now complete. And what a ride it was!

With non-stop shooting and gun-play; floating and levitating in the air (what an awesome & fun skill to use, once you earn that skill); using telekinesis to lift and toss objects (even including humans and enemies, once you level that up) - the game's just an action-packed blast and tons of fun. Oh, and at times, there's some odd puzzles too!

This is such an outstanding action-game & one of the better shooters that I've played since Doom 2016. The story and their characters are bizarre; out there; and totally in another (and their own) galaxy - but still, it's quite good, despite it being often quite purposely obtuse. As long as you can find lots of Lore, learn the lingo, and follow it - you should be fine, even if you don't get all of the answers.

Regardless, the game's a graphical marvel & looks fantastic; runs solid (40fps on my 6GB GTX 1060-based laptop, once I locked the framerate down); the story's always interesting & intriguing; and the both combat and level design's fantastic.

This game is a definite "must play."

The second wave is looking pretty dangerous in Ontario. Infection rates climbed from less than 100 a day to over 1000. Now, the death rates are climbing. Unless there's another lockdown, they estimate that we'll have 3000 cases a day.
