Blair Witch, Control, Decay of Logos: There's A Lot To Look Forward To Next Week

  • Posted on 24 August 19 at 15:50Permalink
    Going to pre-order Control and Man of Medan today.

    Blair Witch through GP.

    Decay of Logos looks intriguing. Can't wait for Borderlands 3 and Gears 5 in a few weeks! rock

    Blair Witch for definite as it comes with Games Pass

    I was going to get Control but it is riddled with exclusive content, PS4 gets exclusive content, plus also the digital deluxe edition on PSN store gets extra side mission Isolation, which does not seem to be available anywhere else even physically, and no deluxe version for xbox, so complete game of Control seems to be digital deluxe version on PSN store.

    It does not seem to be possible to buy the disc version and then buy the extra mission as DLC.

    This, plus my backlog, has put me off getting it for now, and wait for a sale on PSN store or if this cintent becomes available later.

    Wreckfest looks fun. Nothing groundbreaking, just fun. Decay of Logos looked fun and interesting, but after watching a gameplay video, lost interest. Looks like a Dark Souls style combat. One hit and you are dead it appeared. I don't have the patience for gameplay like that. That's probably good though since Borderlands 3 is so close! Don't need to stay occupied for long.

    Blair Witch for me. Very intrigued. Hope it’s good!
    Control is a close 2nd though. It doesn’t seem to have generated any hype at all unfortunately. When searching for it on retailer websites I get Xbox controllers as a result before the game.
    I’ll be interested to see how it sells.
    Probably didnt hype Control up much because of the fact that they overhyped Quantum Break.

    What do you mean? Quantum Break was so good. It had an actor that played in it as well.

    I caved and preordered Control deluxe version on PSN store. With ShopTos offer on wallett top ups made it be about £50 total which includes expansion pass. So if expansion pass is more than £10 then its a saving.


    Still, playing more on Xbox these days, at least it will give PS4 a workout. Time to put on noise cancelling headphones for its fan!

    I will still probably play Blair Witch (and others) more so on Xbox, try and finish it before it leaves games pass.

    edit: Heads up on ShopTo digital stuff, with me it took ages to get the codes, I bought £35 and £20 and the £35 came through but not the £20, then tried contacting Shopto through twitter, and it did not seem it would get sorted until Tuesday when preorder bonuses would be gone and 10% off, so ended up buying it anyway, with just the £35, and then the £20 code came through afterwards.

    I agree, none should be an option.
