Control is a game where alternate dimensions have begun creeping into our own, and among the many Easter Eggs that this narrative device allows for are a couple intriguing callbacks to our Alan.

If your PC's been struggling to run Remedy's new telekinetic shooter Control this past week, you may have been desperately searching for a way to turn off its rather strong motion blur effect. Alas, no such option exists right now, but the good news is that it will do very soon as part of Control's next big update.

Thank the creepy fridge gods, Control’s PC requirements are now much lighter

Good news for anyone hoping to play Remedy's upcoming telekinetic shooter Control in just a couple of weeks time, as the game's official PC requirements are now a lot lighter than they were a month ago - and yes, I'm aware this is fairly old news by now, but honestly, I've been stuck in a locked room staring at the Bureau's supernatural refrigerator for the…

Shock horror, I was right, as Remedy have finally revealed their minimum and recommended PC requirements for Control, and hoo…

Come and get spooked at the first thirteen minutes of Control

I've already seen Control, Remedy's upcoming reality-shifting telekinesis-powered shootey RPG, and I liked it. You're about to see the first thirteen minutes, and I think you might like it too. It's got strange triangles and an extended Shawsank Redemption metaphor that doubles as an allusion to Plato's Cave. Come on, come and nod your smug little head along with mine.

Control is a telekinetic shooter from Remedy

Max Payneologists will be happy to know that Remedy have revealed their new shooter, Control, which they describe as a "supernatural third-person action adventure". It looks a little bit Psi-ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy, a little bit Inside and a little bit... I don't know? Come and take a look at this throbbing gun and explain to me what's happening.

RPS interviews Into The Breach’s developer about hurting our feelings

The folks at Subset Games are responsible for the games FTL and its follow-up Into The Breach, which means that they are also responsible for some of the most frustrating yells I've done alone on an airplane. I'm sorry to those around me, but I thought I was going to finally complete a run and then everyone I loved exploded or died from lack of…
