Gameplay wise it's actually one of the better shooters. The big problem that game has is the low enemy variety, level design and half of it being a bunch of tv-show episodes you gotta watch.

I don't think Remedy has ever made a straight up bad/janky TPS.

Battletoads unlocked early yesterday for some reason, from the half hour I played it's about what you'd expect.

Yeah I loved Alan Wake and all it's content so I'm looking forward to checking this out.

And I'm pumped AF to check out Hypnospace Outlaw. Gamepass keeps on delivering :rejoice

Controversial opinion - Alan Wake was a pretty crappy shooter. Long stretches of level without enemies boring walking sim basically, barely any enemy types, combat options.

I like (but don't love) Alan Wake because the story was interesting, the setting was Twin Peaks, and the visuals were great, but the gameplay-side was pretty bad imo. I can't even tell Control is made by the same people because it's such a far leap of improvement in gameplay. I never played American Nightmare since it seemed more combat focused and yeah I didn't like the combat in AW.

Will play Quantum Break at some point since it seems sorta in the middle between AW -> Control gameplay improvements and I'm interested in the FMV story stuff.

Control plays like a Japanese TPS like Vanquish to me. Really fast paced and zero-shifting and powers and about moving moving moving.

I agree, and i'm not suprised they came up with Alan Wake's gameplay in a rush after their open world plans failed.
Control is a much better working shooter, especially once you unlock advanced powers like levitate.

Both Alan Wake and Quantum Break are bad shooters but cool setttings

Much like Rockstar Remedy just can't get it right.

How hard is it to copy Gears, Uncharted, Spec Opd or that Sega tps

Remedy is one of those weird studios where people cry about how underappreciated they are even though all of their games are unoriginal third person shooters with bad FMV parts in them for no reason.

Tried out Battletoads. Seemed terrible so uninstalled it. Why put unskippable cutscenes in a game like this, especially all the story stuff is terrible. Also I felt like I was missing something about the combat because those guarding enemies seemed to kill the flow since the only way I could break their guard seemed to be to just stand in front of them and charge for a second and let go.

lol, I haven't played Ghost but at least it's a little less appalling since I'm assuming it's a cinematic story AAA game.

Battletoads is a fucking arcade game and having to constantly stop the level to watch a bunch of cringe cutscenes is like game breakingly bad. Arcade games are meant for replays, who wants to keep watching this stuff on replays?

Anyone try Tell Me Why yet? Curious how it compares to Life is Strange 1/2. I liked 1 but never got around to 2 since it took a while to release the chapters.

But this one's free so....tempted if it's good.

Game pass lineup is crazy good. Lots of high quality content.

Cracked out three 1000s real quick over the weekend. Each of these are at most a few hours to complete (even for 1000)

- Observation

Cool atmospheric adventure. Sphere controls were awful. Used this guide for the collectables + missable achievements. Easy 1000 if you follow the guide for the collectables + missables

- Carrion

I liked the idea behind this, cool game. No map is butt cheeks, but you really only need a map to go back to get the rest of the upgrades (which arent at all required to beat the game). No final boss or anything so just enjoy the ride. Easy 1000 its all story achievements + the 9 upgrades

- The Touryst

Simple clean fun. Was funny reading how people hated the arcade games but I cranked them out real quick. You dont really need a guide for this one, the game is very straight forward. Easy 1000
