Nothing about what was shown at VGX looked interesting to me. I was left saying to myself, "Why not just make Alan Wake 2?" I am sure Microsoft is giving them a crap ton of money to do this, especially as an exclusive. Still, not very interested especially when the gameplay is going to boil down to 3rd person shooter.

This game is still the only Xbox One exclusive that I want to play, and I still think it looks rad. Here's hoping that I have the resources to buy an Xbone just for this one game, and that it's good.

What is Quantum Break? A whole lot of vague messaging used to describe what will largely boil down to being a third person cover based shooter.

"...and a high quality live-action show."

I'll take your word for it, Max. But it doesn't instill me with confidence when you have to specifically state that the show is good.

Not really a "crash course" there, Sam. I'm still almost as baffled as to what the heck this is as I was at the start of the video...

Nice touch with the background people, I guess.

Speaking of Alan Wake, all of Remedy's talk surrounding Quantum Break reminds me how for years Alan Wake was described as this Twin Peaks/Stephen King, Twilight Zone inspired game, which got me really hyped but then by the time the game came out it was just a third person shooter first and foremost.

Alex is on fire today. Also, a time traveling Max Payne would be cool instead of this...thing.

@regular_kirk: I really enjoyed the storytelling and world stuff more than the combat in that game. I think it is pretty underrated overall, but part of that is because of how long it was in development and what they promised (like you said).

Why not make Alan Wake 2?

TELL MEEE!!!!!

It didn't sell particularly well. When asked about it on a podcast (don't remember which), they said they wanted to and maybe one day will, but it just didn't sell well enough.

Someone please get me an audiobook with Sam Lake voicing it.

Soo...it's a presumably cover-based, third-person shooter with [insert gimmick here].

...whee?

C'mon Sam, make the face!

.... I cannot fucking stand that still of the lady's face. WHO LOOKS LIKE THAT WHILE BEING BLOWN UP.

Edited by HatKing

This seems like a fun little romp. I'm a big fan of everything I've seen from Remedy. I love the way action handles in their games. And aesthetically they've put together my favorite form of "gritty shooter". This looks a lot less dark than their previous work, which is kind of disappointing, but I'm still going to give it a shot.

Posted by weegieanawrench

Nice touch with the people warping in the background. This looks really cool and I hope what Sam says is true about leaning more on Max Payne gameplay than Alan Wake.

Edited by Abendlaender

Sam Lake should just change his name to Max Payne.

Easily my most anticipated next-gen game.

This is obviously based on your own experiences of seeing multiple people being blown up?

Sam still creeps me out.

Posted by pweidman

OK, so this guy was the OG Max Payne model,lol.

Posted by Luck702

@buzz_clik: I would think getting blown up would make a person close their eyes. This lady looks like she's on a rollercoaster.

Posted by Luck702

I'm just gonna leave this here...

For me there is no video, just a black box with audio... i presume this is not the way its meant to be

This game and it universe looks incredible to me.

English with a French accent is my new favorite way to hear about video games. Something about the inflection, emphasis, and pronunciation seems perfect here.

Posted by McBEEF

Sounds/Looks awesome to me-and remedy has a good track record of awesome story-driven shooters with fun gimmicks in them: bullet-time, light is a weapon, and now time manipulation stuff.

Count me in Sam.

Edited by bwmcmaste

I'm not going to lie, for the first couple seconds I was very excited about an upcoming Quantum Leap game.

Well Sam Lake is Finnish, but I guess you're entitled to like French accents if you really want.

Posted by ultrapeanut

Sam Lake's face is weirding me out even more than that lady's.

Posted by novacircuit

God, I love Sam Lake! I can't wait.

Edited by debrislide

Hey Max Payne....Your game looks good.

Posted by Steadying

I really don't understand what's so hard to get about what he said.

Posted by LeetheOr4nge

I’m looking forward to this game and thought this latest trailer followed earlier reveals quite nicely. Quantum break was one of the main reasons I decided to go with an xbox one rather than a PS4 at launch (that and Titanfall).

I’ve always been a fan of Remedy’s work and thought Quantum Break looked like something I might really enjoy. Although like many other here I want to see more game play footage before being completely convinced!

I liked the first couple of season of “Fringe” and get the feeling Quantum Break might have a similar soft science mixed with time travel quality to it. Not sure if any else has either picked that up or gets that feeling? Its still obviously very early days but you know when you just get a sense about the style and feeling of something.

The set up appears similar too - theoretical physicists working out of a university messing with space and time; main protagonist appears to be a large (slightly shady) corporation lead by a man who appears to have had some hand in the original experiments…

Posted by Korolev

Here's hoping that this is great. It's not the first game to utilize "time" powers, but not many games do, so it's still somewhat unique. Graphically it looks good.

Posted by GunsAreDrawn

I'm not a fan of the main character's hairline.

Edited by simian

It took me a couple of times to notice but the way the background behind Sam skips around is pretty cool.

Also I'm just going to pretend that the antagonist is actually The Monarch from Venture Bros.

Posted by LarryDavis

@regular_kirk: Uh, did you think it was going to be an adventure game or something? It was definitely still heavily Twin Peaks/King/Twilight Zone inspired.

Posted by tourgen

needs more monster trucks

Edited by Tesla

This looks super cool. Even the tv show part of it is promising if you know what's up and you're down with Address Unknown and Night Springs. If they can bring some of that magic to the live action show we could have a gem on our hands.

Thank you for the correction. That's twice this week I think I've been 'that American'.

Also, sorry if I pissed on anyone for mixing the languages up.

I think this looks cool. I liked the people in the background of the video, too.
