I know I'm not right, but the first thing I think of with that pic is Michael Jackson's Moonwalker.

You guys are really turning the screws this year! I've had a lot going on lately and with the absolute glut of games that will be releasing around April, I'm not sure if I'll have time to fit this one in.... but I'm going to try anyway! I've been wanting to play this since it came out, so I might as well play along with you guys.

I loved playing through Control and its nice that's it in the same universe as Alan Wake.

I've heard rumors too. Not a bad Fleetwood album.

So I've started playing this the other day and this game is weird... But a good weird... I think. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this one yet, so I guess I just need to keep playing.

I've put about an hour into the game so far, and I agree with Mr_Stubbes that it is definitely weird, more so than I expected. The action at the beginning felt good, if a bit generic, but the game is thankfully starting to introduce some new mechanics that have been fun to play around with. I'm still very early into it, but I have a good feeling about this one.

Put in another few hours last night.  I think I'm on the 5th story mission.  I will say the game really opens up when you get a few abilities.  Reminds me of Sunset Overdrive in that way.  The gunplay is good, not great, but the abilities are where this game shines.  The standard service weapon form Grip is my most used.  I tried the shotgun one but I wasnt a big fan.  Unlocked Pierce last night which is the sniper type and its really good but I wish it had more zoom.  I guess that's what mods are for.  I was dying quite a bit early on because I was trying to stay back and pick enemies off but that doesn't work so great in this game.  Just like Doom, the game has no auto-regenerating health and wants you to pick up the health packs that enemies drop.  Once you get dodge and shield, combat becomes less anxiety inducing. Also once you get the quest called
Spoiler (hover to show)
DO IT.  It gives you the
Spoiler (hover to show)
ability and you can
Spoiler (hover to show)

Explore every nook and cranny.  The game rewards exploration in the form of lore, mods, and even side quests that grant abilities.
