    I have to comment on the performance issues you guys brought up about Control. I'm currently playing it on the base PS4. At it's core, I LOVE this game. It reminds me of Evil Within 2, or Shadows of the Damned, both of which are apart of my top 10 games of all time, but there's one thing that makes playing this game insufferable.

    The framerate drops are unacceptable. I can't believe they shipped the game in its current state. I honestly don't care if a game is at 60 or 30 FPS, but when there's 10,000 particle effects flying around your character at 5 frames per second, and then you die because you don't know what's going on and have to sit through a 2 minute long loading screen, I lose all interest in playing it.

    It really does hurt though because I've been looking forward to this game since it's reveal at Sony's E3 conference, and I love Remedy and want to support them the best I can, but how can I when I can't even play the game they shipped? I really hope they follow through with their statement to improve the games performance.

    I gotta say, Control sounds like an awesome experience and something that I should check more in to personally. I never really seen any trailers or gameplay before hearing about it here, but even so, I'm loving the premise and setting that was discussed. Also, Telling Lies sounded intriguing as well, I've always wanted to check out Her Story, and playing that game with the missus sounds like it could be well worth it. Lastly, Nolan's jokes were on point this episode, keep up the solid puns.

    Nolan was on FIRE this episode, cranking out those crunchy jests! Enjoyed ya'll's thoughts on game difficulties and the overall futility with dedicating yourself to the hardest difficulty. And some great answers for that baby question. Great work, love it!
