What is Remedy's Control? The new game from Alan Wake, Max Payne and Quantum Break developers will be out in 2019, but it isn't getting much attention.

Dylan has had it with Steam and their inability to take a real stance against games that simply shouldn't be allowed on any self-respecting platform.
Brand new Pokemon games are on their way in the form of Pokemon Sword & Pokemon Shield. Both were announced in a Pokemon Direct from Nintendo early Thursday morning and Dylan, Ashley and Cherie break down the new games and starter Pokemon.
Prior to last week’s Nintendo Direct, Game Informer senior editor Imran Khan said that there is a “game that’s thought to be dead that Nintendo’s reviving”. Ashley, Ciaran and Nick speculate what that game could be and whether reviving a cancelled game is a good move for Nintendo at all.
Nintendo has shown their first Direct for the year of 2019 and with it came lots of announcements including, a remake of a Zelda game. Dylan, Ashley and Cherie discuss all the things shown in the Direct and what stood out the most to them.
Microsoft is bringing Xbox Live to iOS, Android and the Nintendo Switch platforms. The news comes from Eurogamer who spotted the information on Microsoft’s own schedule for GDC 2019, which is taking place next month.
Nintendo offered fans of the upcoming Metroid 4 Prime a straight-cut piece of news via a video this week where they announced that the game will be restarted at Retro Studios. This, of course, pleased many as they are the studio behind the original Prime Trilogy. But should everyone react so fast to a simple developer name? Shouldn't people check more often the same people behind the company name are working in these teams? And also, is this transparency good for the industry?
