Control feels more timely now than when it came out last summer. Perhaps less fanciful as well: it’s suddenly very easy to understand the cloistered weirdness that radiates from Control’s characters, who you meet while they are besieged inside their fortified headquarters, barred from leaving by a lockdown none of them has the power to lift, and wearing special vests that protect them from succumbing to a psychic infection that struck-down most of their coworkers.

I’m hoping the AWE expansion (is that redundant? we’ll see) takes place in a more open area. Hopefully gets the player out of the Bureau and in to a field or small town of some sort. I think that’d be a great change of pace.
